Name of your Tumblr here

Recently graduated from Birmingham City University, specialising in Graphic Design. I like all things digital and everything that generally looks cool. I also play a lot of video games and treat them as a source of insperation rather than "time killer".

This blog is a place for me to reflect on things that I find interesting and worth sharing, some of my own work will be posted here as well.

Can’t wait for this thing to come out, hopefully it will be soon.

The 2014

2014. This will be quite a significant year in my life. Apart from graduating with yet another qualification, by the end of the year, I should be happily employed somewhere in UK, or packing my things and saying goodbye to UK, for a while at least.

June of 2014 will mark a decade in British education system for me. This was  more or less blunt transition to adulthood - an experience which changed everything about me so rapidly that, every time I used go back home for holidays, I didn’t feel quite the same.

Looking Forward…

I’m glad that I stuck with my annual reports, even though they weren’t quite consistent, there were an influential source of discovery and training design-wise. I have set up few new metrics to track for 2014 report: pedometer, weight, and images. If everything goes as planned, there should a nice balance between online and offline activities, so reports are not digitally oriented anymore.

Also, I want to try commit going to gym again, from last year, I distinctly remember having more energy after sessions, plus it is another metric to measure. Brewing is something I want to get into this year, will blog more about it later on.

Excited for following new Marvel films, and other promising titles:

Edge of Tomorrow

FitBit One: New sets of data for next year.

During research for my MA project, I read this interview with one of my favourites: Nicolas Felton. He mentioned the FitBit as a tool to measure distance walked, steps taken, stairs climbed and so on. After a brief research in activity monitors, I ordered FitBit One for myself. Hopefully my next year’s report will be a little less digital, thanks to constant tracking and convenient, well-developed syncing process of the FitBit One.

This discovery of activity monitors actually made me look at iPhone 5s again, since it has the same function of activity tracking thanks to new M7 chip. Even though it improved the battery drain by the sensors over the other iPhones, I couldn’t find any conclusive review about M7 performance as an activity monitor, perhaps iphone 6?
