    Celebrating Five Years Of Blogging

    The 31st of December 2017 marks my blog’s fifth birthday. Technically it is quite a bit older than that, my original WordPress account was made around 2010. Since I’m no longer blogging on WordPress.com I don’t count that as a real anniversary. Anyway my blog turned 5 and I’m genuinely amazed that I’ve managed to reach this milestone. The last 5 years haven’t been easy, I originally made this blog at the start of 2013 to go along with my YouTube channel. I enjoyed posting occasionally but that was it. At that time of my life I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with myself. I was working…

    The State of the Ninja

    It has been four months since I last posted so I thought I should give a little update on where I’ve been. The short explanation is I’ve been ill. I got a cold right at the start of January and it took till around March for it to properly go away. Then in April I had some weird back and abdominal pain which I ended up needing scans for. Not joking there is only one other time I’ve even been in that much pain. It wasn’t fun. This then caused my CFS to relapse and my doctor told me to take it easy for a while. I can however announce…

    Graphic Design Student | Week In My Life

    I love journalling. I’ve journaled regularly in many different forms for the last few years. Today I thought I would share what I’ve been doing at college. I’m coming up to the last few weeks on my graphic design course for the year and they have been slightly hectic. Our final project was a ‘personal’ project (basically you could do what you want). I decided to design the logo for a book shop because logo design is surprisingly fun. Today I thought I would share what my week was like while getting started on the project. WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDENT Monday I actually started out…

    A Day In My Life With Chronic Illness

    I decided to do something a little different today. As I’m sure many of you know, I have a chronic illness. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which makes daily life extremely difficult. So today I thought I would share a typical day in my life. I took a photo of everything I did during the day and this is the result. Chronic Fatigue makes it extremely difficult for me to cope with every day life. To some it may seem like I have a very mundane existence. Unfortunately this is the reality of living with a chronic illness. A DAY IN MY LIFE WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS MORNING I wake up…

    Fun Fact: I Am Not An Apple Genius

    I spent three years at studying for a degree in Computing. During that time I learned many things, like normalizing to third normal form, what a name server is and how artificial intelligence works. At no point during that course was I taught how to be an apple genius. However during that time I did not learn how to fix that problem with your iPad which sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. And I have no idea why your 6-year-old iPod won’t work like it did when you first got it. You know why that is. Because I’m not an apple genius. It’s not that I can’t be bothered or don’t want…
