I may be upgrading

21 Jan

Wassup world?

i may be upgrading to my personal site soon. it’s slightly just a bit of something that I have been wanting to do for a while, so yeah, I guess I am excited for it. the reason why? well, alot really, I have previously started some really cool projects that in the near future may go into my CV or my BIO. I am looking to get a personal site/blog kind of thing where I can post random information about myself and what I am doing. I am a firm believer of Bio being stronger than  a CV. Okay, look at it this way, right, if say someone like larry King was fired from CNN for whatever reason may be, when he applies for a new job, what are the chances that most people will more willing to hire his services than not? Why? because he has a much stronger bio and his life work speaks volume.

Well, the Internet sort of gives us the opportunity to create something close to that but on an online sphere. Look at how web 2.0 has gone to personalize the web, with the rise of many social networks and the advantages that have come along with it, which includes doing business, and doing it good.(making profit and marketing, not necessarily in that order)

So as much as I am doing a project 365 on my flickr, check out here, I am also doing school stuff that I am hoping will be of tremendous advantages to me and my career in future. yeah, also the coillusion project that took off is amazing. I talked about coillusion in this post here. I am also dancing, travelling, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I have not yet talked about.

What I’m looking to upgrade to is a very simple and basic site. Most preferably wordpress blog. I am in LOVE with the robustness of wordpress blogs, I do run a tumblr too, starting the beginning of this year that really just focuses on African stuff and all.

Aaaanywho, I hope to keep you updated.

Living The ‘Dream’

11 Jan

I have randomly thought about this subject for a while now without actually coming up with a definite answer to this. I mean, dreams, isn’t it just about the widest topic out there?. What is a dream really, why do we have them, what if we did not dream, what if we lived our dreams, would we still have other dreams, are dreams  aligned with someone’s purpose in life?, and how can you have a purpose in life when the sole intention should be to remain alive?

Well, I probably do not know the answer to most of those questions, I probably do, or just not care that much. What stays on my mind however, is why a specific subject can consume you wholly, make you go sleepless just thinking about something. We might have been there, wanted something so badly you’d feel it in your bones.  I am an ashamed dreamer. Most people do not like admitting that. I enjoy dreaming randomly of what may happen to what or when or where. Most of the times I know my limits. I know when to stop, when to snap back to reality, when its all said and done.

I took time out basically to evaluate mine, to laugh at myself for a little while, pat myself in the back, feel good, feel bad, you know, just basically all the emotions that are involved. It’s been such a mind opening session for me as I even do that to myself. Now, I agree that it is possible to live a dream, but mostly what we ignore is the hardwork that goes into making, or trying to make a dream a reality.

There is too much that meets the eye than just living a dream, than just dreaming, think about it though, the only way we can is through hard work..

What did I just tell you?… think about it..

Here’s my 5th image of a 365 project..
