No title

I haven't updated in ages and I don't really have time right now to formulate a proper update but I shall just mention a few things (where this post will seat equally between personal and academic life).

I think I'm making headway with my equipment and the calibration process but my motivation is somewhat shot again. I really must make a move and I only really have about 2 months until I need to have a draft abstract about planned experiments finished and ready for submission to SPIE. I have faith, but pray for me!

I am still feeling some slight ill effects from being ill a couple of weeks ago, my tummy is behaving very funnily. But I am OK.

Finally, There are still a few things I have in the pipeline, including;

  • my new blog design: I'm not really getting enough spare time at the moment to finish it. The design, and deciding, process seem to take so long, especially with my perfectionism affliction. But, I think I am getting into the groove and really want to finish it soon.
  • more YouTube videos: I haven't yet mentioned that I make - well, used to make - videos on YouTube known as video logs or vlogs, some of which were a teeny bit popular. I am not going to divulge my YouTube identity here just yet - and if you find it out, I shall be most impressed - but I might do eventually. Anyway, I want to make more videos and I have a few video ideas, which takes me onto the last thing...
  • Europe tour videos collage: when R, his two siblings and I went to Europe in the summer, we made a series of video diaries which I am currently converting (from .mov to .avi to please Windows Movie Maker) and plan to edit together to make a movie about the trip. I have made the title images for the movie (using Inkscape) which I want to share with you guys and hear what you think;

You can do some pretty clever stuff with Inkscape, I think it's easier to navigate and understand than Photoshop and it's free! Here ends my lovely plug for Inkscape.

OK, that will do for now and I shall hopefully be back soon.

Au revoir!

p.s. I have another new follower; Chantel of Chantels fave things, who has a lovely blog design. I am not quite sure how she found me or even why she likes my blog but it's great to have another cool follower! Muchos appreciation.

  1. I like the design on the left with the pictures in the corner.

    I was wondering, what happened with Halloween? Did you do the costume?
