And have a great new year! If all goes well I should have something new coming up soon, so keep an ear out for that! :D
Overheard in the office:
KK: So you don’t wanna ride me?
It’s been a while. Life has been fairly routine in the last six months or so, but when I look back at the photos I’ve either uploaded to Google Photos or Instagram, it’s been a pretty interesting trip. Some of the highlights include:
First Kpop concert!
I love Winner and I stan Jinu. Sunday night was unreal though and the concert was such a visual feast that my brain still has issues putting memory to the songs they sang. It was absolutely epic. Rin got Tuna and me great seats and it was quite awesome.
Fave sets have to be the remix of Really Really, Love Me Love Me, and the boys’ individual sets. Also Hoony’s skin is epic flawless. He barely showed any sweat at all what is this!
From an event organiser point of view, I was very impressed. The entire thing was run pretty well – most people started going in after 5pm (concert was scheduled to start at 630pm) and entry was smooth. There were enough ushers who knew where to put people. Concertgoers were really polite and those who had to go past others to their seats were apologetic (Tuna and me got front row seats at the corner so we needed to get up and let people through but that was fine!).
The other interesting thing was that the concert started early and ended on time – it was about 2.5 hours and we were all out of the stadium by about 845pm, though we only left the area much later because hello post-concert traffic.
Took photos and started Inktober
So I have started doing Inktober though I’m currently behind. Using LordofNowhere’s prompt to draft a probable story for Nanowrimo. I may not attempt it this year, but I have kind of two possible story ideas I want to explore so there’s that.
Inktober planning has mostly gone out the window but one of the things I’ve observed about myself is that I like doing inking that require me to avoid filling in the blanks, aka using a black background instead of a white. It makes the work seem more conscious somehow – that I’m learning what to leave out rather than sketching in the details.
Photos wise I’ve been able to grab some really gorgeous photos and made use of the selfie stick I finally bought after weeks of deliberation. Completely happy with my purchase though now I need to find new excuses to carry and use it frequently. Bonus: Selfie stick came with a set of lenses that made taking pics a trip!
Cut off my hair!
After about 3 years I think I finally cut off my hair. Was planning to donate it but I could not find the opportunity (I couldn’t make it to the saloon or they couldn’t accommodate me etc) so in the end I went elsewhere and got it all chopped off.
My only regret is that I may have timed this wrongly – it’s the rainy season now and the office is stupid cold.
Attended a Music of Hans Zimmer concert
Suffice to say that this was incredible and holy crap I have missed listening to instrumentals that tell a story without needing words.
Travelled to Bangkok
Went there for a company trip. It was amazing and interesting. Also said goodbye to some people. That was a bit depressing. Played with some AR.
Removing slide numbers from Powerpoint Office 365
- Click on the Insert tab.
- Select the Header and Footer option (towards the right of the screen).
- Uncheck the Slide Number option
- If you’re just changing the title slide then click on “Don’t show on title slide” at the bottom
- Click “Apply to All” and close the tab.
The information on the official MS Office page seems to have completely forgotten the menu is hidden by default.

Shortcuts for changing caps in MS Word, Powerpoint and Excel:

=UPPER(click on the cell you want to change the caps of)
- Copy the values in the temporary column.
- Right click anywhere else and Paste as Values.
- Delete temporary column.
Putting this here mainly for my own convenience. I suppose there is a reason why Excel’s a special case but really Microsoft, the fact that I had to write this entry in the first place says a lot about the total failure of your SEO.
So, video’s delayed slightly today, one because I messed up on my timing, two because some unexpected matters came up. There’ll be one later tonight or by tomorrow, Wednesday 29 August. Thanks
