It will be 10 years this summer since I moved in to the mighty city of London. I feel like I came to a point where it is ‘questioning’ time! Is London the right city to continue the minuscular life of mine? I decided to point out 5 top cities to live. So far I got: London, New York, Sydney, Tokyo, Berlin…
Berlin: never been (next in my trip list). New York: too aggressive. Sydney: too relaxed. Tokyo: too radioactive. London still stands at the top with its balance in being between too aggressive and too relaxed. So, let s give London one more chance, I said…
I started the WDI - Web Development Course at GA as of last week with the intention of realising couple of startup ideas I had in mind for a while and also potentially make a career change.
So, how has first week been so far? Well, definitely much more intense than I expected. I guess, going back to the discipline of attending a class 9-6pm everyday and on top of that, being expected to complete a homework based on what you have learned that day -without having a chance to digest- came as a slap on the face. But hey, this is precisely why I am taking this course: Stepping out of my comfort zone! Up for the challenge…
You learn a lot in a week, I realised. I mean a lot!!!
PS: I even know what SUDO means now! Just been to Sainsburys and spotted SUDOCREM. Can we call it “selective perception”?

The Kickstarter Campaign video has had over 100k views in just 4 days!
As you will all appreciate, this is a big number! We cannot help but think: ‘If every single person out of that 100K people had pledged $1 each, then we would have already reached our $100,000 goal!’ :)
