Xbox One Elite Controller Review


Posted in Technology/Gadgets on May 21, 2017

This controller is a beast and I doubt I have yet to use this controller to it's full potential. It has so many knobs and triggers that you feel a bit lost when using it for the first time.

How to motivate yourself to lose weight or become more healthy when working 9-5 in an office


Posted in Health and Fitness on Jan 08, 2017

We are now into the new year (Happy New Year everyone) and usually at this time, everyone is looking to either lose weight, or become more healthy or even a combination of the two. As a Web Developer who has been in the field for just shy of 4 years, I think I have found a good way to keep myself motivated to becoming fit and healthy and would like to share it with you in the hopes you too can become more healthy. Within this industry, it's very hard to want to do anything before or after working hours and I also felt this way for a very long time. About a year ago, I started dieting with my fiance to partially support her for her weight loss, but also because I felt like I too was overweight.

Plans for the new year


Posted in General Updates on Dec 26, 2016

I never do the "New year, New me" bullshit, I have always believed that the end of the year is a time to reflect what we have done over the past few years and what we can improve upon for the new year to come.
