Eat Happy

I love food and it’s a big part of my social life. I literally have made friends at school because we shared meals together or conversed with them about foods. I love burgers, bacon, poutine, cupcakes, anything healthy/unhealthy that is delicious.

Wreck This Journal #4

Here’s another update on my Wreck This Journal journey. I realize I actually have quite a ways to go in order to finish this entire thing by the end of the year, so you might see much bigger posts to come.

Pig Rockets For iPad Review

Here’s another review of a game I have beaten (so I can finally free up some space on my 16GB iPad). I originally downloaded this game via one of those daily “free app” apps. Currently Pig Rockets is $1.99 in the App store. It works on all iOS devices.

The game is kind of a mixture between Tetris and a Tower Defense game. The objective of the game is to use blocks (which are in the form of Tetris pieces) to prevent pigs from hitting your house/property. Whenever a pig hits a brick, it disappears and turns into bacon which you can use to save up for helpful power-ups in the store. You unlock new levels by lasting a certain amount of waves on the previous one.

Know Your Online Character

You probably read a lot of different articles that talk about the importance of content in gaining followers but nobody really talks about the importance of character and personality. I find the people I remember and engage with the most over social networks are those with amiable personalities. The tweets that were retweeted the most on my own feed are strangely also my own random thoughts or life happenings. Sure content is important, but knowing your online character goes a long way. It all really comes down to one question: What do you want to be known for?

Wreck This Journal #3

Here’s an update on my Wreck This Journal journey. For some reason I made a Tumblr of this and so far the responses have been good and I keep getting reblogged for some reason.

Gourmet Food and Wine Expo 2011 Review

Thanks to Lisa from Turn the Record Over, I won tickets to opening night of the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo.

I went for the food since I’m not much of a wine-o. How the expo works is there is an entrance ticket (which I won) and you must purchase sample tickets to try things. From what I saw yeseterday, tastings of food and wine cost anything from 1-8 tickets. Tickets are worth $1 each. Between me and Nash we had $40 worth, which was more than enough to get full off food and have enough for a couple of drinks.

Blogging to Fill the Void

Yesterday I read a really interesting article on Behyped on why you should start a blog while unemployed. I recently entered this mysterious realm myself. And it’s scary.

I’ve been in school for what seemed like forever (elementary, highschool, University, and the Entertainment program at Metalworks). Being finally out is sort of frightening as I try to figure out how to find employment in an exciting yet highly competitive industry. I however find myself more and more addicted to blogging as a strange way to cope with doing nothing.

Wreck This Journal #2

Here’s another progress on my journal wrecking journey. I started off by doing some of the cheesy easy ones on my own such as this:
Naturally, since music is always on my mind, I thought I might as well right the word a million billion times. Woot, made some shapes out of it too.

Do You Put the Tea Bag In Before or After?

When you are making tea, do you put the tea bag in before or after you pour the hot water? Just a curious question. Maybe you do it differently every time, that’s plausible too. I’m a tiny bit OCD so I have always put the tea bag in before.

I think I do this because I like a strong tasting tea and putting it allows the water to hit the bag and for the tea to saturate water more. Whereas if I put it in after I would have to move the bag up and down in the water or poke at it with a spoon to get the same effect.

A thing you may or may not know about me is I have a weird interest in cognitive science and how minds work. So naturally, I did some random research on the topic and summarized all the similar findings. Here is what your tea making techniques might say about your personality:

Wreck This Journal #1

I bought Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal almost 2 years ago with my best friend who also has one. We were supposed to trade when we were done. I found it again recently and wondered why I had not finished it. At first I thought that maybe I had no time, but the truth is.. I’m pretty OCD about notebooks. Despite the title of this journal, it actually hurt me a little at the thought of wrecking my notebooks. As you know, I LOVE to collect notebooks, many of which are empty and wrecking this one was like a nerd opening a mint condition collectible and stepping on it. However, I’ve set a new goal for myself.. I’m going to finish this thing by the end of this year. It will be an adventure, and I’ll blog about my progress.
