Connected to the internet [at home] again

Posted by on Feb 15, 2015 in Life, Technology

The past couple of weeks have been terrible for me. 3 months ago I moved into a flat in Camden Town and agreed to sublet a room. For the first 2 months, things went well and there was really no worry. The couple I live with are great and we have nice conversations together. Plus, we do not get in each other’s hair and are generally all quite laid back. Now the person I’m subletting the place from was a complete disaster. She asked us all if she could stay in January for a week, as he had come back from a two-week-long holiday to South Africa. She works as a nanny, or so she says, and she stated that her nanny job would not start until a week into the month. So we were kind and let her...

First Week at New Job – So far so good

Posted by on Nov 30, 2014 in Life

I started on Monday and finished all the way to Friday – yay. That’s not to say that I would not have turned up on certain days if things got a bit hairy. Generally things have gone well. I of course don’t have the same friends that I left behind at Zenith, so it has been a bit lonely as I was speaking to quite a lot of people at Zenith. Now I’ve only got a small handful of people to talk to. I suppose I built the friendships up for the year a half I worked at Zenith, so it will probably take some time to adjust and do a similar thing elsewhere. Actually, one of my worries was not being able to do the job and being generally shit at my job. But just in this first week I...

Mordeth13 Seriously Injured in Motorbike Accident

Posted by on Nov 23, 2014 in Featured, Health

I lived in Taiwan for 2 years and used to watch Mordeth13’s videos on a regular basis. I stopped due to work commitments, life in general and because I just stopped using YouTube to watch people talk about their lives. But for the period that I did, it filled a void where I had nothing better to do; I could simply open up a video and find something interesting about someone’s life. Watching any of Mordeth13’s videos was purely for entertainment. He’d be riding around in his scooter or motorbike talking about his day as a foreigner living in Taiwan. I sort of felt like a foreigner, even though I’m half-Taiwanese, so I felt like in some of his stories there were connections of where I experienced similar encounters. One thing about Mordeth13 is that he is mysterious and...

Last Day at ZenithOptimedia

Posted by on Nov 21, 2014 in Featured, Life

Yesterday, was my last day working at ZenithOptimedia, UK. It was not as emotional as I thought it would have been (for myself), but my good friend, Christina Hirst, was shedding the tears on behalf of everyone else (I think that’s what happened). They created an excellent presentation which consisted mostly of pictures of me in a really drunk state. Let’s just say that there was no shortage of those types of embarrassing images. It was a sweet end to my time whilst working at ZenithOptimedia. My friendship within the agency, I hope, is still as strong as ever, perhaps even stronger. Bringing it back to my speech actually, I tried to be quite funny and mentioned the people I had worked the longest with, whilst apologising for not being able to mention everyone. Of those that I did...

House Hunting In London – Nightmare

Posted by on Oct 27, 2014 in Life

Where do I begin? Finding a decent place to live in London is unbelievably difficult as you’re literally competing against others for that awesome room that you found on either Spare Room or GumTree. Am I right guys? I viewed a place in Edgware Rd only a week ago and 10 people were viewing that place on the same day as me. How much did that place cost? It cost £700 incl bills and was available as a double room. But the room was hardly worth paying that much as the area it is in is like a ghetto and when I first walked in entrance of the block of flats, I asked the agent showing me the place why there was water on the floor. He explained that it was, “rain water”, and I just looked at him...

Tough Mudder Review – Epicness

Posted by on Oct 26, 2014 in Health, Life

Tough Mudder: a 12 mile obstacle/assault course that I had just completed yesterday with a bunch of other people I went with. It was utterly brutal with obstacle after obstacle putting your mental thought to work as to whether you can continue or not. Or in some cases the obstacles would rejuvenate and spur a lot more energy in you to carry on. For example, who would have thought that freezing cold water would have kept your mind off the fact that your body is psychically incapable of continuing? It is mind over matter that plays into a lot of it. What with steep hills, one after the other, relentlessly breaking any energy you have left, you just have to keep going no matter what. Crap… cramp!! Cramp is the worst. I had to stop multiple times and do stretches in...

Never live with a live in Landlord

Posted by on Sep 17, 2014 in Opinion, Tips & Advice

I’m actually fuming at the moment. I love when I can write a post on here that comes from the heart and soul. So I live with a live in landlord or a resident landlord and it has been an utter nightmare to live in this place. I mean the house is nice, my room is nice and the other flatmate is nice. It’s the landlord that is the problem. The reason I’m writing this blog post at the moment is because my landlord just turned off the washing machine – full of my clothes that was half way to being fully washed. I’d already put the washing powder and the clothes softener in – in fact, it was the last of my washing powder. I’ve been looking for opportunities to wash my clothes, but he always leaves his washing...

Wandering Around London

Posted by on Sep 13, 2014 in Health

Living in London can be amazing at times – especially if you live in Zone 1, where you can conveniently walk to locations that are full of joy and happiness. Today I went on a little wander around the city after having gone to the gym for around an hour and a half. Before that actually I ran for around 1.9 miles. I didn’t complete the 2 miles because that’s exactly how far I live from my gym. I’m training for Tough Mudder (12 miles; October 25th) and Survival of the Fittest (6.2 miles; November 22nd), which is why I’ve been picking up from where I stopped running and mainly focused on lifting weights. I’ve also started using the Nike+ Running App to benchmark my progress. Here’s where I’m at so far: I burnt 255cal I ran 1k in 5:34 I slowed...
