The social media attention span (and Wrapup)

November 27, 2012 - 04:24 | 2 replies

On Facebook and Google+ I've noticed a trend of sharing and resharing as much as humanly can. Every funny pic, every deep quote, every single thing you stumble upon with must be shared. My timelines are flooded with random. It's no wonder then that in time to time a friend or a family member asks me something I have...

October 8, 2012 - 18:41 | 0 replies

I guess everyone has obsessions. Sometimes they are worse, sometimes there's lots of them and sometimes they are small ones, nothing that bad.

Of drawing and the Weekly Wrapup

October 1, 2012 - 20:29 | 0 replies

Whole my life I've been encouraged to draw and paint and do crafts. It's something that my family does. Giving a non-selfmade birthday card to a family member is considered as almost an insult. So I've always been drawing. Unfortunately I'm an impatient person, I have trouble of relaxing my shoulders and arms and my...

Of autumn and the Weekly Wrapup

September 24, 2012 - 18:10 | 0 replies

Autumn, syksy in Finnish, is here. Some days are bright, sunny and somewhat warm. Most days are rainy or humid, chilly and grey. Not much inspiration to go for a run.

Of relaxing and the Weekly Wrapup

I can get pretty wound up and being all relaxed is tough for me. That's most likely why it takes me such a long time to get in sleep. My mind is roaming around and I remember stuff I *should* do. However being able to relax is essential for health. It gives the whole body, especially heart, a break. Trying to keep up...

Of rules and the Weekly Wrapup

June 18, 2012 - 14:53 | 0 replies

I'm not against all the rules. Rules can be good, especially when they are based on good sense and morals. They keep us from doing dumb stuff and hurting others. Well, at least that's the idea. But then there are stupid, ridiculous rules. Usually set for personal or business gain. Take the new Twitter logo and the...

It actually is derived from a word for kesanto, a sort of ley farming where a field is left not planted for a year or longer. However around here the summer is...
