Happy New Year guys! And hellooooooo 2015! I hope everyone has had a relaxing and great holiday break. I have been sick for the past 2 weeks (my entire holiday period so that was great timing), got to visit Hong Kong for a week and am now currently being eaten alive by mosquitoes in the great* Australian summer.
In the lead up to Christmas I found out all about vlogging and in particular vlogmas and was hooked on Ingrid Nilsen’s channel The Grid Monster. What is it with the fascination with the lives of total strangers? I have no idea but I now want a Christmas jumper.
I can feel that this new year will be a year of happening! My PhD is due this year and I will eventually have to find a job but in the mean time, I’m excited about what the design and travel world has to offer and hope that you’ll enjoy them too!
I hope everyone is knuckling into the Christmas festivities. This will be the last post of the year so Merry Christmas everyone!
Have an enjoyable last week of the year (omg!) and I’ll see you back here in the new year!
I went to a talk from The Minimalists earlier last month. It’s a (could you say a lifestyle?) choice that I’m still thinking about and is still ongoing.
I came across this article recently which focuses on another aspect of minimalism. That the most successful people (by definition in this article as people who have contributed greatly to our everyday lives by what they have created or the power they weld and they go by the names of Obama, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Einstein) wear the same thing most days.
The science of simplicity. There is actually something called decision fatigue which is a real psychological condition where a person’s productivity decreases due to being mentally exhausted from having to make irrelevant decisions.
“ Our life is frittered away by detail
.…Simply, simplify”- Henry David Thoreau
Just some food for thought.
Have a great weekend guys.
I hope you’re enjoying the content on sprinkles of happy and that it’s brightening up your day (if you needed it) or at least giving you some neuronal firing.
Introducing 2 new things on this blog as of today.
Number 1. The hashtag #gender equality. I’ve updated the relevant posts with the hashtag now which are all here. Just a quick point out that this hashtag won’t only be focusing on women but will also focusing attention of the male inequality.
Number 2. A letter from Sophie! (also # a letter from sophie) In a bid to make this blog a tiny bit more personal minus telling the whole world who I am (unless you actually know me in person, then that’s ok) and what I’m up to on a day to day basis (sciencing fyi). Not sure how often these will be posted but let us just see.
Have a good week me hearties.
