Balaam Leisure Centre – I’m now a gym goer!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2013 in Food, Health

I’m officially a gym goer now. I signed up to a gym that is very local and is only 7 minutes walking distance from where I live. Last week I had a tour of the place and I pretty much liked it from the start. It’s funny as I did a Google search for this gym and there were quite a few negative reviews. Here are a few of the reviews: The leisure centre/gym has an overall rating of...

Repairing your laptop at one of Oxford Street’s computer repair shops

Posted by on Sep 10, 2013 in Tips & Advice

As you can see from the picture above, my laptop recently broke and I had to pay out £60 to get my laptop repaired. I work in Central London at Tottenham Court Road near Oxford Street. This area is renowned for being expensive, so this would have been the last place to go to get my laptop repaired. I, however, had no choice but to go to Oxford Street as I work near there and any other alternative, like going...

Have I become a workaholic

Posted by on Sep 6, 2013 in Health

At least I can admit it. Nevertheless, it won’t change a thing. I actually feel kind of arrogant saying that about myself, but it’s true. Ever since I landed this job my one focus has been to constantly do work – even at home. I haven’t even done the technical side of the job in full-force and I’ve mostly been doing content marketing for the team I’m on, as it’s what the team has needed me to do. The reason I’m even...

Tower Hamlets College — Learn to communicate

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Education, Life

I am in a pissed off mood today as the college that I signed up to do an “Access to Web Design — Standards” course is suddenly no longer doing the course due to lack of interest/students. I usually wouldn’t be annoyed at something like this. This is, however, a course that I signed up for last month. I also had to do a Math and English test to get into this course. I passed those with ease and...

In turns out unpaid internships aren’t so bad

Posted by on Aug 9, 2013 in Life, Opinion, Tips & Advice

I’m glad, ecstatic, amazed, overjoyed and every other happy adjective you can think of. Today I was told that my internship was turning into a full-time job. I’m to start work as an employee on Monday (12th of August) and I’ll finally get paid for the work that I’ll be doing after suffering 6 weeks on no income and purely just burning through my savings. What’s the job I’ll be working in Central London of off Oxford Street for...

Outreach, Outreach, Outreach

Posted by on Aug 6, 2013 in Life

I actually haven’t talked about what I’ve been doing ever since I arrived back in the UK and there is a reason for this. The reason is because I have not had enough time to update my blog that much and I’ve generally been knackered. For the past month up until now I’ve been doing an unpaid internship for a digital marketing agency. It’s one of the largest digital marketing agencies in the UK and is now part of...

A better phone or a better laptop?

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in Updates

Okay, so I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and I really want a new phone, but I also really want a new laptop. I can only afford to choose one of those two options that I have and it’s bloody difficult. This is the laptop I’m thinking of getting: Processor – Intel Core i5 3230M – 2.4 GHz RAM – 8GB Hard Drive – 1 TB Operating System – Windows 8 (64-Bit) Optical Drive – DVD Super Multi Graphics – NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M Graphics Memory – 2 GB Cost: £539.86...

Meeting an old friend

Posted by on Jul 11, 2013 in Life

Today I met up with an old friend of mine from secondary school. I can’t honestly say that the experience was enjoyable as we went to this bar where they were playing loud music and it was really difficult communicating. I was trying to get a catch up as to what she’d been doing the past 2 years, but as I said, it was too difficult to communicate with the music and all. Then we went to this disco…...

Biting the silver bullet with AdSense

Posted by on Jul 6, 2013 in Updates

I very recently cancelled my AdSense account; this was to do with not being able to be paid and I slowly built up a significant tab, which I was not able to withdraw or cash-in on. A couple days ago I decided to, essentially, bite the bullet and close the account. I mean, why continue building up cash, when you can’t withdraw it. The only way I could see myself withdrawing it is if I went back to Taiwan....

Reddit’s fascination & hatred for Justin Bieber

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Opinion

This is a response to a recent thread in the default subreddit called  r/Music. It seems that there is a large group of Redditors who hate Justin Bieber and would love to see this kid arrested for whatever purpose that is readily available. They would like his career to sink to levels never seen before. While I don’t think he is the best of role models, I really would not wish any harm on him and would hope that...
