Well I'm not normally very humble but I gotta say I was the most ordinary guy out of the bunch of presenters at Pecha Kucha. I pretty much just got on because I was tagging a long with Matt. Matt killed the crowd with laughter. I screwed up on my first slide but the rest was decent, I even got some good laughs.
I must say it feels nice to accomplish this, from the days where I have problems talking to sales people to now speaking in front of 500 people, feel pretty good. I also feel so relieved that it's all over. I wish I can do more public speaking.
Going to Mexico tomorrow. When I get back it'll be a nice fresh start. I'll post a long version of my part at Pecha Kucha in a later post.
A carpenter in a Chinese village, perhaps unwilling to spend what would amount to a month's pay on a bicycle, has created a 100% wooden one to ride around town instead.
55-year-old Peijia Wu, from Shandong province, allegedly took three months to build his DIY wooden bike. It features no metal parts whatsoever – joints are fixed with small wooden bungs and a rod-crank system has replaced where the chain would normally be.
I jacked this post from Gizmodo, makes me feel ashamed of myself.
I seem to have quite a few things on my plate right now. I'm going away at the end of the month and it seems like I have a number of things due culminating right around the time I leave. The funny thing is this kind of stuff seems to always happen to me.
Here are a few things I have to get done before I leave.
1. Taxes 2. Present at Pecha Kucha 3. Complete a painting for this group show 4. Finish a presentation for my full time job 5. Finish Finale SS09
I just finished an intense season at my work, people say that it's the fastest we've ever finished a season and it has been one of the strongest the company has seen.
Been getting really exhausted lately, I am sure that when I go away it would be a nice release from all this work.
