This has been a pretty rough year so far, but it has brought everyone closer together. Without my brothers (and Momma Bear) I wouldn’t be the person I am today. We all have our differences but at the end of the day we are a family and I wouldn’t trade a single one of my brothers for anything.

 

So I’m really excited for the new Spiderman movie just because Emma Stone is playing Gwen Stacy.

Emma Stone Blond as Gwen Stacy

Since I graduated school and started working, a lot of what I do has shifted from being a designer to a developer. Since I’m 90% sure this is where I am taking my career I’ve started to learn more-and-more code as the weeks of 2011 progress. Starting with Flash/ActionScript 3.0 where I’ve been perfecting such ground breaking code as stop() and goToAndPlay(), and now have completed my first working Flash page! (applause)

HTML5 Badge

Along with the spirit of learning new things I’ve made it my goal to learn everything there is to know about HTML5 before it is recommended by the WC3 so according to ishtml5readyyet.com I have until my 33rd birthday to fully learn everything that HTML5 has to offer. Thanks to Lynda.com and some down time at work I’m able to get a jump start on HTMl5 and soon CSS3.

Anyone reading this have any experience with coding HTML5? I had done a bit of it when I was in school but since it doesn’t work with Internet Explorer at all we haven’t focused too much.

Donald Glover is the god damn man, all the Childish Gambino tracks are amazing but I can’t get this one out of my head.

He just recently posted this to iamdonald.com and it’s been on repeat for me.

So I’ve recently decided that triangle is the best shape. I don’t have a lot of evidence to back up this argument so you’ll just need to take my word for it. Here are some of my favourite triangles.

The Triforce from the Zelda series.

All-Seeing Eye: I believe it has something to do with my weird obsession with Free Masonry or the fact that it just looks cool.. (or maybe because of all the Villains gear Jay makes at www.wearevillains.com).

Triforce: From what some would say is the best video game series of all time the triforce is just awesome.

Sandwiches (not pictured): Who doesn’t love a good sandwich (cut in half of course, that’s a triangle, right?)

I’m sure there are more, somewhere..

So it has been 309 days since my last blog post, I’m not sure why I stopped but it could have had something to do with the fact it was no longer mandatory for my class. A lot has happened in the last 309 days so I’ll recap a bit of it (Sorry that this one is more personal than nonsensical, the rest will be filled with more things about bears and clothes).

I graduated from Interactive Multimedia Development at Algonquin College. Between my last blog post and my graduation I was placed at Wunderman Toronto as a Junior Digital Art Director and had an amazing time working there, thanks to Helen Prokos for being such a great mentor.

After a brief stint of unemployement (where I should have been posting on my blog) I got a job in my hometown of Burlington, Ontario working as a Brand Developer for a studio named Incipit where I work on web related things.

In November of last year I finally upgraded my system and now I have a 27″ iMac + my 21″ LG monitor but even after months of having it I haven’t installed any of my design software!

*Yes that is World of Warcraft, but I don’t play anymore.

Anyway, I’m going to try and keep my blog up to date more since other than work I don’t do much these days.

(I don’t know who I’m talking to, I don’t think anyone is still subscribed. Maybe I should post another picture of Amanda Bynes in Maxim like I did months ago)
