No motivation

Of course, everyone has their down days. Those who work on a routine 9-5 or even a sporadic part time job has someone to constantly keep them in check, at least in theory. Some people can get away slacking off and still get paid their wages. As a freelancer officially, I find that I am […]

Amber VS Lee: Who Am I?

Since last night, we’ve been playing a guessing game I saw in an episode of Sherlock. It’s where you write something on a piece of paper and stick it on your foreheads. You then have to guess what the thing is. In last night’s game, I failed quite badly. Amber had the lead on me. […]

Riding My Old Route

After my trip to Germany in April 2012, I went to the doctor and he told me I have fatty liver. This apparently is a pretty common ailment in the populace. Then came May 2012 and I drank a pint too much, which gave me a feeling of my liver tearing up inside of me […]

Connecting us together

Recently, one of my friends posted up his insight on mobile technology coinciding some of the things he has read from various people on Social Media.

A simple question turned tragic

Yesterday, I was online at a friend’s multiplayer Minecraft server when another player had asked if I could take him to the Dark Oak forest from spawn. I proceeded to ask my nephew Andy, whom I hesitated knowing he has some form of logic-problem coinciding many questions or comments people have said to him. It’s […]

How fast do you type?

Of course, there are better WPM examination tools, but just for fun, I got 359 CPM (72 WPM) from this test: http://typing-speed-test.aoeu.eu. Apparently I beat 90% of everyone who took this test. 185 CPM (48 WPM) is the median, with most people doing between 120 CPM to 200 CPM. How about you?

Proud to be yourself

Yesterday, I saw an article on Facebook that Tim Cook came out to the public and announced that he is proud to be gay. In response, I rhetorically asked why he would be proud to be a certain sexual orientation. The most common answer from other people were that gay people have been discriminated against, […]
