I have always wanted to get iPad since first time I saw it. Sadly, I was not able to afford it. In the meantime, ‘iPad’ evolved to ‘iPad 2,’ and then ‘iPad 2’ renewed as ‘New iPad.’ Even ‘iPad mini’ and ‘iPad air’ have launched; it is still expansive for me, regardless of its model or generation. Therefore, I decide to develop my own tablet pad: ‘Doodle Pad.’
Let me explain its characteristics and competitiveness.
People around me have asked me why it looks like a common copy paper. Yep, that's exactly the problem :)
A report shows more than 45 million of single-use coffee cups and almost 500 million plastic straws are thrown away every day in America. Sadly, here in South Korea, reliable statistics regarding this issue is still unavailable.
In order to consume less of them, I have tried to bring my own Starbucks tumbler. Also, I have tried to avoid using more than two disposable straws a day, by reusing them after washing. But, um……., Sometimes I realize that I am in some sticky situation, when I go to the coffee chains. Because the combination between tumbler and straw seems somewhat incongruous, some folks look at me in a strange way. I am feeling a bit guilty about the disrespect to Starbucks' signature green.
Oh, lord, am I really destroying the ordered harmony of the universe?
Collecting Writing instruments can be a decent hobby except for one thing: some of them are awfully expensive. Thus, I prefer to collect mid-low line-up of popular brands. German-owned company Lamy is one of my favorite brand, but I have feeling love and hate to their products. I like them because of their simplicity and practicality; on the other hand, their annual special edition makes me agonize. Both ABS plastic-based series (Safari) and aluminum-based series (ALstar) launch their special edition every spring, and they are basically the same pens with the different colors. So, my concern is as follow: are these SEs really necessary for me?
I am not a prophet, but I can predict the future line-up of Lamy’s special edition.
2050 SE - Eclipse
2051 SE - Camellia Pink
2052 SE - African Violet
2053 SE - Linen
2054 SE - Dark Salmon
2055 SE - Princess Ivory
This repetition might be continued until there in no color left in the world.
The Twilight Zone is my number one favorite TV show. This legendary anthology series covers science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thriller, and psychological horror. I have been fascinated by unique narrative form, including macabre or unexpected twist. I still remember the opening title sequence with chilling theme music and greeting message from the creator, Rod Serling.
“You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.
A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop...... the Twilight Zone!”
