Little infinity

SAD aka Seasonal Affective Disorder


Couple of months ago everything was okay. I mean, as okay as it can be. Normal, I guess.

But since the new semester started last month, I started feeling worse.

At first I blamed it on me being sick and had an excuse to stay at home for weeks.

Now that I’m not sick anymore, I still don’t want to go back to normal.

I’ve lost all motivation and barely go out. I used to be an introvert, I think I’m more of a hermit now. I’ve missed half the lectures. When I had perfect grades last semester (shut up, it was perfect by my standards and I might even get a stipend) I’m close to failing now if I don’t do something about it.

Year 2012

This post was supposed to go up this Summer, but apparently it’s really hard to just sit down and write about how your dreams came true.

Albeit, I still tried, I tried in London, I even sat down with my notepad at the Southwark embankment at night and watched party boats pass me by, but I couldn’t do it. I tried again when I got back home, but still no luck. At the end I just decided to drop it and now it’s been couple of months and only a few days left till 2013 and you know how it is, right? When the date gets closer and closer and you just crave some change, you want to do something, even a little thing and I had this idea to sum up my year in this post. Not narcissistic at all, I know.


I’ll have to start with January 2012 when Read more…

Asylum of the Daleks Screening

I had the most amazing day which needs to be written up tonight so I don’t forget anything.  On 14 of August Doctor Who’ Series 7 first episode screening was planned, which is called Asylum of the Daleks. Screening was held at BFI Southbank at 18:00.

The thing is, I heard about the event too late in July, and the tickets were obviously sold out by then. BlogtorWho on twitter still suggested showing up early for any lucky, last minute tickets so that’s what I did. I though ‘ sod this, if I’m not gonna get a ticket, at least I’ll have a chance to meet all the awesome people who’ll be attending!’ And I did!

I showed up around 5, because I spent all day at Tower Hill which was a great experience. there was a huge queue for people like me, but it wasn’t moving, because there weren’t any tickets to sell whatsoever. To be quite honest, this whole ticket thing is unfair. What happened is that when months ago tickets went on sale online, first ones that got it were BFI Members and when other people wanted it, it was mostly sold out. Yeah so a bit unfair, I think. Obviously I wouldn’t be a member living in another country or just outside London, would I? Anyway, back to screening. I chatted with two sisters while in the queue and they were very nice, meanwhile we spotted Matt, Arthur and Steven just talking on the phone and walking around upstairs and photographed them.

Before the screening started, BFI staff told us that they wouldn’t be selling any tickets, but Read more…

Vlogging Tips

I think it was 2008 when I first became familiar with the term “vlogging”

Ever since, I’ve been pretty interested with it and even had couple of attempts to make my own videos, which didn’t really end with the result I desired.

Now that I think about it, there are couple of things that you really need in case to vlog

I’ll try to scale it down to 3 main tips.

  • A fine camera.

good equipment is the most essential thing for vlogging, but you obviously already knew that. If you’re looking for camera recommendations for vlogging, try here & here.

  • Good editing software.

If you think that this one’s not as important as having a good camera, you’re wrong. I’ve had a nice vlogging device [Flip Ultra HD] for two months now and you know what i filmed? Nothing. Why? Because my editing software sucks. Some blogs might recommend Windows Movie Maker that comes with every Windows, but it’s horrid and even if you start using it as a newbie, you’ll newer be delighted with it, at least not for long. Good editing softwares are:

          Δ  Final Cut Pro (most vloggers use this)
          Δ  iMovie (if you have Mac it comes for free)
          Δ  Camtasia Studio (Which I used at first)

Editing videos is easy. It might seem complicated at first, especially in Sony Vegas and such, but try starting with simple softwares and then purchase others. There are always neat tutorials if you can’t get the hand of  something at first, so try googling it.

  • Environment.

For me, this is really essential, because bad environment really puts me off. [while filming in household] You see,  I don’t have my own room and it’s really hard to get some quiet time for yourself to film a video during daylight. At night when it’s more peaceful, flourecent ruins everything so I lose the to film at all.

It’s easier when I have to film something outdoors, especially since I own Flip Ultra HD, it’s quite handy. [recommended]

I really wish I could film stuff more frequently, but I guess it’s better if I don’t, at least not before i feel comfortable with stuff that makes me uneasy, cos for me, making quality vlogs that are worth watching comes first.

All in all, I hope you found these tips helpful and will be more successful at vlogging than I am xD

Good luck xx
