Adobe Illustrator: Louden Swain

Remember the time I wanted to learn Adobe Illustrator? Yeah, university and life got in the way. Although I did design an app for my third year of uni. (not that I was studying graphic design… but it did help our presentation!) But now I might do a month of coding and a month of graphic…

The Wrong Way to Learn Coding

I started using html when I started my job.  Long story short, I use html when posting the blogs to the website, when I change a banner, when I send a newsletter. (Find out more here.) And when I manage to change the layout of the newsletter, I feel proud of myself. When I figure out…

How I got into coding

I started using html when I started my job. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t doing anything too complex or too hard! I started by posting the blogs to the website, and I had to do minor tweaks, such as the use of paragraphs, linking an image to a product, centering the image. Minor stuff…

Coding Tips: Use Sublime

The Sublime text editor is probably the best thing in a coder’s arsenal. Whether you’re just learning and you need a way to clearly see what you’re doing, or your code is becoming longer and longer and harder to group, Sublime is the way to go. I myself am not a coder. I am an…

Learning a new skill

I’m starting a new “project” in my life. A new hobby. A new year resolution, if you will. And that is coding. I used to work in PR. I then transitioned to Marketing. And now I want to challenge myself. I tried to learn coding about 3 years ago, but I didn’t stick to it….

Normalise paying for art

We’ve all watched movies or TV shows online. We all rely on YouTube to listen to free songs. We’ve all frowned when we saw the price of a piece of art we didn’t understand (or even classify as art). And the list could go on. So I’ve always regarded YouTube as a free entertainment service….

Spotify vs Apple Music – Quick Thoughts

I’ve had my first iPhone ever (the 6s) since the 25th of September. And, as usual, I’ve been using Spotify. I love Spotify. I couldn’t live without it. Which is weird, as I hated it at first. I love CDs – in my short, humble life, I’ve managed to aquire about 600 CDs in my collection. (ok,…

iPhone 6s quick first impressions

I’ve officially owned my iPhone 6s for 24 hours. This is my first iPhone ever, and after coming from Android, I was dreading the change. But I needed one – because why not? Don’t get me wrong, I loved my LG Google Nexus 5, and even though it stopped working three weeks ago, I would…

My (hopefully long) Journey with Adobe Illustrator

I’ve said countless times that I want to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator. But I am an impatient person. And if I don’t manage to do a project quickly and without flaws, I usually give up. And I’m also lazy. But I signed up on Treehouse, a website that offers courses on “computing” –…

Why I Don’t Play Video Games

Ok, I started my blog with a lie. I apologise. I do play video games, but I try not to. Because I always end up becoming addicted. I know it’s a problem. And playing for only an hour or so is hard. I always end up repeating myself: “10 more minutes, just 10 more minutes…”….
