Um, whut.

I just find it funny when someone screws up your name in an email even though they've addressed your name correctly consistently previously. Who knows, maybe they're just tired af, but it's just odd.

Funny how that happened to Cara too, lol.

App Testing

Wednesday, 12 August 2015

I just finished testing an app for a company and being able to review and give feedback has been surprisingly therapeutic. It stands strong with my personal philosophy that designers do more than "make pretty things", and it really got me to reflect on the why's and how's (especially on how to improve user experience). Plus I like helping people out, so being able to provide constructive criticism to make something better is a win-win situation.

Wow, I had almost forgotten about this cartoon...

Taste of the Danforth 2015

Sunday, 9 August 2015

Admittedly, I've never been to the Taste of the Danforth until yesterday. I had meant to go in previous years, but something always came up (or I forgot). My boyfriend and I started the day at the quieter end of the street festival, first ordering Chicken Souvlaki on a stick for $3. I forgot to take a photo of that one because I was so preoccupied with fumbling between my wallet, my bag, the food and the can of Pure Genius sparkling water in Cantaloupe. I hadn't eaten or drank anything prior to this (and was really parched), so I got desperate and got that drink. I don't normally order sparkling water since carbonated drinks aren't my thing, but whatever.

Functionality Fail?

Friday, 7 August 2015

I don't get it. How does one advertise about a street festival promising cultural performances and "lots of food" but only have information on the programs of the shows being played on the stages? Where is the info about the food?! Cause clearly that's what I'm going there for...

#websitefail #wtf

Whatevs. Guess I'll find out tomorrow.
