Motivation & Organization: Creative Journaling

February is my least favorite month of the year. Back in Canada, it’s the coldest month. February is also the month that I loose all motivation for school, exercise, eating healthy, and working hard. I don’t have any explanations for this. All I know is that in February I am sluggish. This is a bad time for this to happen because it is midterm season. The time when I need to be the most productive; but, I’m not. February is also the month when I become an unorganized mess – for me; this is a catastrophe. So for anybody lacking motivation one month into the new year. For those who have lost sight of their New Year’s resolutions, and just need a little push to keep powering through. Here are some organization tips and motivation techniques that should help put a pep-in-your-step! […]

People On The Grid Interview with Fintan Kerr

People On The Grid with Fintan Kerr

Fintan Kerr is 28-years-old and originally from Macclesfield, England. He moved to Barcelona almost six years ago, to experience a new and better way of life. Once in Barcelona, Fintan’s adventurer side took control and Fintan would wander down to the local wine shop where I was living in the Born, Bodega Maestrazgo, and try a different wine, read a book and have a light dinner. Soon, his evening would be the best part of his day. […]

The Future Is Now: Virtual Reality Edition

We already told you that in 2017 virtual reality is going to be on of the biggest trends, and will skyrocket in use. To see where we are now with VR, we should look at where we started off. I was at a Facebook 360 presentation the other day, and in it, they said: “virtual reality is a trial and error process, you try it out, it doesn’t work, you start over again.” Before I go any further, I guess I should explain what Virtual Reality (VR) is. It’s pretty straight forward. VR is a computer-generated environment. When you put on the VR headset you ‘step’ into a different virtual world. Hence, Virtual Reality. […]

Animated Gif: The Education Debate

This week Animated Gif talked about education. Among international parents, this is a hot topic that comes up regularly and often generates a heated discussion. Do you send your children to an International school? International schools are often English-speaking and follow a different educational curriculum. Or, do you send your children to a public school? In public schools the language of teaching is in Catalan and studies follow the Spanish curriculum.

Six Degrees of Separation and Virtual Communities

“I’ve read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only 6 other people – six degrees of separation. How everyone is a new door, opening into other worlds”

The quote above is from the movie Six Degrees of Separation (1993). What is pretty neat is that I can be connected to Leonardo DiCaprio – it’s just a matter of finding those right 6 connections. With technology, those connections are easier to find and create. But, technology has also caused face-to-face interactions to be replaced with face-to-screen interactions. […]
