Up the Gear?

Is it possible to up the gear?

All these things I feel like I should be getting out of the way, it seems totally possible, within easy reach.  Whenever the time comes that I begin to get these things out of the way, time just disappears.  More things gather, then the workflow is congested.

No, it’s not a fantasy, I need to complete these things, I need a system, I need a pace.  Something stable, something that works, something I can rely on.  Do I just expect to much?

This isn’t much of a post, I apologise.  I had planned for a post on something but with the variety of things I’ve been doing today I really have no idea what it was.

I’ll write again soon.  After some rest.



Keeping the Pace

Hello there!

This will only be a short post I’m afraid folks… more on that in a moment though.

Just got off from two weeks of school holiday, the time when I should have been catching up on sleeping, getting everything done so that I can come back to school and get given a whole bunch more tasks to fill the tally back up.

Ah, nope.  Not happening.  Somehow I’ve returned to school, with a lot on already as it is.  Do I do this to myself? Do I honestly have to instinctively make life more complicated than it should be? – Enough of the questions into empty internetific space…  the answer is yes, yes I do.

I’ve done it before, during the holidays with all the free time for creative brilliance, I get the so called ‘clever’ idea to start doing multiple projects of my own.  Videos, graphics, software, stories.  I start doing all of these things, like I’m running a hobby marathon, then school resumes… and I’m still trying to do all these different things, as well as school work…  It doesn’t work,  with my level of perfectionism and OCD school projects already take enough time to complete as it is.  In fact I actually did one of my school assignments over the holiday.  I was meant to word process my book review notes.  Instead I wrote it out in a full review form with colour coded notes and simplified questions.

Ben you crazy fool.  Why the heck would you write up 15 pages, 7000 words… a combined total of over 41,000 characters?  When really you only needed to write about 1 and a half pages.

I’m not answering that, I’m too scared that I’d offend myself.  I’m going to be living with myself for a really long time, so, it’d be a torturous experience.

Agh, tired, feeling…

See you later folks, will write an update blog some time this week to tell you what’s going on.





The Hunchbacks… Of 2012.

Welcome back people! Looks like you are actually reading this, good good, keep it up…

Ok to be honest, this site has had barely ANY activity in the last month. This is partly to do with VmB being ended, but I guess the main of the reason is that we have either been lazy, procrastinating or simply too busy to even look at the site. So, I have decided to write this  post to hopefully bring the site back to life again.

Enough of the inspirational speech! Onward!

Right, the post… I am really not helping my case here… no ideas, no inspiration, just tapping the keyboa- That’s it!

I was in the Salamanca Markets a while ago, and came across a t-shirt that had the words ‘Stop following me’ written on the front of it. I had seen this kind of t-shirt before, but the picture showed the evolution from chimpanzees to humans, then back down to a person hunched over a computer.

We are all turning into hunch-backed monkeys with square eyes and fingers evolved for the computer keyboard. The human population is rapidly being overrun by technology. Every household in Developed countries are almost guaranteed to have a computer and/or TV somewhere inside them. And a vast percentage of those also have tablets…

Are we being brainwashed? Will all kids be bought up in a world of high-tech devices and a way of life that comprises of gadgets or even robots doing the every day jobs around the house?

It is a daunting thing. People of the 1950’s and 60’s often express their concern that we young ones spend too much time indoors and are Vitamin D deficient… Well, I guess I can be accused of that. Though remember, you do get us to use technology in schools brainiacs…

“Daniel, get of that flipping computer!”
‘But Dad, I need to finish this.”
“I don’t care. Off the computer now.”

“No buts! I am sick of you using technology all the time!”

“But it is school work…”

See something familiar?

We are being brought up in a world of technological advancement. It is rapidly overtaking the world, and we are the ones in control of it. “We are the future.” Pffft.

I personally get bagged out every day for using technology for most of my homework and leisure time. It is a bit befuddling, as we are encouraged to use technology by businesses wanting us to buy their products and especially in school. Though it seems to be that a vast majority of adults do not agree with this new culture.

When the internet was created, no one was aware of just how it would affect the world within the next 2 decades. Sure, it has become a revolution, creating a brilliant way of communicating with people around the world with emails and instant messaging. Although it is also bad. Paedophiles, bullying etc. It has become a major tool for these people and it is starting to become out of control. I won’t even start to tell you about Facebook, because we are all aware of what it has bought about…

So, we should really be focusing on the major factors that would decide the lifestyles of future generations. If we adapted technology to help people more and make us happy to be such an “intelligent” species, we could perhaps prevent ourselves from becoming hunch-backed monkeys permanently.

Just something to think about. After all, we are the generation that holds the fate of the world!!

Until my next semi-inspirational rant,
