30 Before 30 Review

In 2014 I created a blog post (and page) where I aimed to complete 30 things before turning 30. My objective was to perform many tasks I had wanted to do but lacked time or motivation. While I was not able to finish all items before turning 30, I am proud of those I was…

Thirty

Today I turned thirty. I celebrated my thirtieth birthday with my parents and kept it low-key. I’m not a party person, so that was ideal for me.Β  Age doesn’t define who you are. Age doesn’t dictate how you should live. Age is a process of growing and discovering yourself, not measured in numbers or dates.…

My Design Process

As I near completion of my fourth class at University, one of the fundamental factors in all classes, is the design process. The design process refers to the steps you take to reach a final design. The way you approach this can vary between every person. My process involves; mind mapping/rough notes, research, inspiration, sketching,…

Searching for a new host

I need a new website host. I was quite happy with my old provider (WiredTree), however I was recently notified that they have been acquired by another company (Liquidweb). I have read many mixed reviews about Liquidweb and it makes me a bit nervous and would rather look at other options. Let the searching for…

Being Thankful

In life, we can become complacent with the things that matter and forget to acknowledge what is important to us in the present. We may not realise that something or someone meant so much until circumstances change. I know that one day, I am going to be thinking about this time of my life, and…

I have completed 4ish units and have been learning a lot about design. In the other corner you have this super…
