blogging from my phone

blogging from my phone

I installed the WordPress for Blackberry app a while ago, but only recently decided to set up. It’s actually really powerful. I can add media, view my stats, and edit entries. I’m loving that I can blog from my phone, but I don’t think I’ll use it very often (I am using it right now…

A quick typography piece

A line from "No Matter What" by Papa Roach

It took me a while, but I just realized how little design work I’ve actually been doing lately.  Apart from my portfolio’s new design, I haven’t done any personal design projects in a while.  In an attempt to rectify that, I spent about an hour working on a really quick typography piece a few nights…

What have I been up to?

It’s been a busy few days lately.  I’ve been churning out job applications like a crazy person.  I’ve lost count of how many internships/jobs I’ve applied for this week, but I know that I’m not gonna slow down any time soon.  I’m really determined to get a job in Ottawa so I can stay here…

My new Portfolio site!

Yesterday I decided to debut my new portfolio website despite the fact there were still some things I wanted to improve. The new design shares a lot of design similarities with my old one (extensive use of Trade Gothic Condensed and a green/purple/pink colour scheme).  The reason behind that is my resumé shares a lot of…

Mini shopping haul (ft. Forever 21 & The Bay)

Mini shopping haul (featuring Forever 21 and The Bay)

Nothing too interesting has been happening lately, other than it’s the start of my reading week. I’m going to try and use the week to catch up on work and finish up some personal projects.  Before all of that though, I went to the mall with some friends and got a few items during the influx of…

Ottawa Winterlude 2012

Skate at Winterlude (was part of sculpture)

For any of those who know Ottawa, Winterlude is an annual event in the city that happens every winter.  It lasts for a couple weeks every year, and people can see ice sculptures, skate on the canal, and see nightly events.  My photography teacher had an assignment where we had to take some pictures while…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Red velvet Valentine's Day cupcakes

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! I hope y’all are having a good day, whether you’re in a relationship or not.  This is my first Valentine’s Day (ever) where I’m spending it with a significant other (wasn’t single last year, but was in a long-distance relationship), so I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. In…

Get the Tomato

Start screen for Get the Tomato

Two weeks ago I got my first assignment for my second Flash/Actionscript course, and I finally finished it up today.  I called it Get the Tomato. In my first Flash/Actionscript course I made a game called Find the Tomato (which I talked about here), and I thought it would be a fun idea to take…

Playing in the Snow

Android playing in the snow

I haven’t done a Where Have You Seen Android? photo for a while, so I thought I’d do a quick photo of Android all bundled up and playing in the snow.  I knew I had to take this picture now before the snow melted into nothing.

Where are my manners?

A pseudo self-portrait

It’s been a week since my last post and, to be perfectly honest, I’m disappointed in myself.  I had so much to talk about in the last week: I went to an art gallery opening, a Senators home game, configured a Microsoft Kinect to run regular video games, but have just been too lazy to…
