Geek To Gladiator: February

First of all, I managed to take almost no photos throughout February so I’ll be summing up my month with GIFs rather than #foodporn pics. Now that I’ve gone through my little disclaimer, I can get to the nitty-gritty. February was the first month of my challenge and, as some things go, it was equal

Geek To Gladiator: The Beginning

Here I go again. It seems I have a knack for writing about my new year’s resolutions a full month after the initial celebrations. Luckily I always manage to wrap my head around the craziness of everything just in time for the Lunar New Year. Maybe my body is just attuned that way? Last year

Another month down for 2017 and it almost feels as if time is speeding up with Halloween just next door and Christmas around the corner.

Growing up, especially through the peer pressure of high school life, we’ve learnt what hobbies are more socially acceptable than others and it’s usually only when we become older that we start embracing our interests without worrying about the judgement of others – or it turns out your friends have similar guilty pleasures and you
