covid vaccination, yay or nay?

I am about to get my 2nd dose of vaccination for the coronavirus in the coming week. I was a bit sceptical at first. With the sociopolitical environment of Hong Kong and the population’s mistrust of the government. I also had doubts regarding the vaccines and about all the conspiracies I have heard about theContinue reading “covid vaccination, yay or nay?”

My very first experience with Dungeons and Dragons

I had always wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons(D&D). It seemed interesting. Appearing multiple times in pop culture and some gaming channels I follow. I just thought I could never come across other people who played D&D or even had a remote interest in it. That was until a friend of mine asked me ifContinue reading “My very first experience with Dungeons and Dragons”

Assessment 1 – Blog Post : Narrative Reflection

The coronavirus affected us all. Those whose life spiraled down in a big way felt this impact the most. I was here working my kitchen job full-time, contributing to my family with studies pushed aside somewhere in my mind. I was eventually planning on returning but I just didn’t know when I would.

There are a multitude of games available in the market. But I want to talk about an idea that may end up becoming the go-to way of experiencing gaming within the next 10 years.

My views on masculinity

Week 11: The internet of things: from networked objects to anticipatory spaces

Blogjects are incredible! Pigeons equipped with specific machinery used to record the level of toxins and pollutants in the air. Us, going to different restaurants in our districts and rating them in OpenRice or on Google. We are getting more connected to the Internet and leaving our footprints along the way. We can travel everywhereContinue reading “Week 11: The internet of things: from networked objects to anticipatory spaces”

Presentation- Research Project Pitch

My media niche is something that’s not talked about often because it is for the most part an ignored community or one that is considered “privileged enough not to care about”. But I am confident there are countless men on the internet who think about their masculinity and how they can become a better man.Continue reading “Presentation- Research Project Pitch”

Week 1: The telegraph in warfare

The telegraph made communication easy. Messages could be sent faster than ever with the cables allowing electricity to pass from state to state. It gave the Union a ridiculous advantage in the Civil War. When the Confederate discussed strategy with their generals all in the same tent, the President at that time, Abraham Lincoln hadContinue reading “Week 1: The telegraph in warfare”

Next stop for Giannis

The Milwaukee Bucks have not made it to the NBA finals since 1974 when they won a championship with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.  Although they got close in 2019, making it to the Eastern Conference finals where they lost 4-2 in a seven-game series against the Raptors. It seems like Giannis Antetokounmpo. The reigning MVP will haveContinue reading “Next stop for Giannis”
