I messed around with Android, the results were surprising!

Let’s talk about phones. Yes that massive hunk of expensive junk that lives in your pocket that probably isn’t going to last long before you savagely replace it with a “fantastic shiny new model”. Now I’m a fine one to talk In fact you could probably call me a hypocrite because I bought a Google Pixel XL 128GB on pre-order …

Excuses excuses

So it really has been quite a while since my last blog post and a lot has changed over these past sixty days. Some of you may have thought that I went missing in action, which I guess in some respects could be true, because I did go off grid for a bit. I’ve been really really busy.. Is probably …

Life is surreal

Alex General Nuggets 0 Comments

“Y’know,” I said whilst taking a huge bite into the side of a bright green apple, “life’s a surreal experience.” My brother stared at me in bemusement, “how?” he said quizzically. I just shook my head and laughed. You see, much of life is defined by logic, I’ve a mathematical mind by nature and when someone asks me to paint …

Midnight Thoughts

“Alex?” “Mmmm?” “What’s up?” “Nothing much,” I replied as I smiled and stared at the ceiling in bewilderment. The night air was filled with the sound of the gentle pitter-patter of rain, peaceful and hypnotic noise. Calming and comforting and only amplifying the coziness of the house. Things have changed, they have changed a lot in recent months, in recent …

Ah Seattle, I Could Get Used To You

So it’s 2am again and yet again, I’m being told off for still being awake. I doubt I’ll finish this post in one short session, so this’ll probably come at some really weird time or on a regular scheduled post slot.  Adventure Awaits! I wanted the freedom to do some exploring, so I decided to get a rental car and …

Hello Seattle

Finally, I’m here! I’ve got through customs and have arrived in Seattle.  I love long journeys The longest journey I ever had was probably when I went to Australia at the age of seven, although, unsurprisingly I was traveling with my parents at this time. While a ten hour flight might seem like a long time to most people, if …

I hate pears!

​”I swear down Alex, if you’ve eaten a pear again, I am not going to be pleased.” Shhhh, you know nothing! There is no fruit quite as disatisfying as a pear. These completely unique shaped fruits generally have a disgusting wooly texture to them. In fact, if you are one of the few people who can somehow tolerate the scourge …

From Software Engineer To Catapult Engineer

For my birthday, I was lucky enough to get Da Vinci Catapult kit. Now for those of you who are unsure as to what this actually is, it’s a small working scale model that’s actually pretty powerful!  Let’s talk Physics Ugh, not physics, please anything but Physics. So this is a single armed catapult, Da Vinci did actually create a …

I’m Twenty; Now It’s Crunch Time!

So here’s the day I was waiting for. My day of judgement, my day of reckoning. As I take a look back at my life, I accept that I truly have achieved a lot. At 06:53 in the morning, two decades ago, I was born. I was fed up of my mother’s uterus and decided to leave it two weeks …

It’s June

It’s been a while since my last post, too long in fact. I thought I’d write a post to let you know what’s going on. I now use Britain’s biggest carpark every weekday Of course, I am talking about the infamous M25, which in truth, for me, hasn’t been too bad yet. Now I have said this however, I’ll most …
