As my Exploring Creativity course draws to a close, only a week remains. It’s been quite a journey, addressing issues such as veganism and newmindspace (which, by the way, I’ve still got to do a post about, as promised. It should probably be up by tomorrow at the latest.)

I have come to the conclusion that even though the course is over, this blog doesn’t have to be. It just wouldn’t be fair to all my readers. Besides, I enjoy writing this blog too much to just suddenly abandon it, and I’m sure many of you enjoy reading it as well (even though parts of this blog have been a bit eccentric I must admit… but who doens’t enjoy a bit of eccentricity once in a while?).

So, the blog lives on. And it’ll be updated more frequently. I’m hoping at least 2-3 times per week. I’m also debating whether or not to combine this blog and my other blog into one, because, as you may have noticed, it’s getting a bit lonely on the other side :(. I figure, why not have a technology and a creative blog in one? It helps add more variety and a different perspective on things, and anyone who’s read my other blog knows that I don’t just pick a random topic out of the blue and blog about it; I only blog about a subject if it’s something worth discussing, and perhaps some alternative insight would be healthy (and of course, I don’t want to just desert my other readers as well, causing them to think that I may have vanished off the face of the Earth or something). What do you guys (and girls) think? Feel free to express your opinions in the comments.

So until next time, I’ll just have to continue multiblogging until I come up with a definite solution.


Get Inspired!

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while (ever since Jan. 26 when I picked up the paper, actually), but it seems I never got around to it until now. I guess I just liked the print version better.

There’s a great article in the January 26 issue of Dose about some ways to blossom some new ideas for the inspirationally-challenged. Features thoughts from seven of the most creative Canadians out there. Great Read!

I’m an Artist

Benjamin Perez, an old high school friend of mine once told me (last year),

(Gabriel), you know what, you’re an artist. I mean like, you don’t like people telling you what and when to do things. You do things on your own terms.

After hearing that comment, I felt really good. It was the most appreciable comment I had ever received.
