I still find it weird to write 2018 instead of 2017. I guess that’s going to last a while. Anyway, as usual I’m doing a quick roundup of some new things I tried this month. It feels like January has been kind of non-stop, which isn’t great because December was too and, honestly, I need… Continue reading New things I tried in January 2018
Last week I attended Venturefest Scotland in Glasgow at the Science Centre. As a recently ex-academic, it’s a bit strange to me to attend a conference with such a different angle to the ones I’m used to. Venturefest is a business and innovation conference (I think they call it a summit) that has a real… Continue reading Venturefest Scotland
As usual, last month I was going out of my way to try new things. It’s a habit I strongly recommend and I always enjoy looking back at the end of the month to see what I’ve been able to try. This month has been incredibly busy – I’ve been getting to grips with my new job,… Continue reading New things I tried in August
Last year I ran a series of blog posts, once a month, in which I listed 5 new things I’d tried in the previous month. It meant I was always looking out for new things to try, however big or small and that I could always look back on what I’d been getting up to… Continue reading New things I tried in January
This is part of the series of trying new things. Every month I challenge myself to try new things, however big or small those things may be. Sometimes it’ll just be a TV show or a recipe, sometimes it’ll be an event or an activity. Anything could happen. Then, I list five things I tried… Continue reading New things I tried in November
Honestly, I never really wanted this. I wanted a good, small phone, something smaller than my lovely little Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini without basically being the ultra basic phone parents buy for their children. Sadly, such a thing does not exist. Trust me on this, I did the research. Don’t tell me I should have got… Continue reading New phone!
Today a major press conference was held about the initial results from LISA Pathfinder. LISA Pathfinder is a spacecraft that was launched back in December in order to test key technologies for the LISA mission, a space-based gravitational wave detector. After launch, LISA Pathfinder travelled 1.5 million kilometres from the Earth, heading towards the Sun. When it… Continue reading LISA Pathfinder
I got a job! I know that normally I talk about beauty and whatnot on Tuesdays but I have been dying to tell everyone this news! I’ve actually known for a while but I was waiting for paperwork to get sorted out and that kind of thing so that it was definitely 100% confirmed. Anyway… Continue reading New Job!
My first real smartphone was an HTC Desire S Mini. I loved that thing, it did everything I wanted it to. It ran Android, the camera was surprisingly good for the time, it never glitched, crashed or let me down. Plus, it was kind of cute and it was small enough to fit in my… Continue reading Smartphones are too big
