Travels..

I miss LA..

I go away quite a bit and every time I get back I wish I was going somewhere else.
I think I’ve said before.. That if I wasn’t human I’d want to be a bird.. I love travelling.. I love seeing different countries, experiencing different cultures.. And the weather is always a bonus :)
I’ve decided that in my future.. Whatever I am getting into (job wise) is going to require me to travel. I read an article about a guy that travelled to every single country in the world using every mode of transport except for airplanes. It took him 3 years! I think I could do that!
I have a bucket list of countries I want to visit.. I don’t know how many I’ve ticked off.. But when I finish that list I’ll only create another..
I’ve got the travelling bug. I’m unstoppable!

Technology no more!

Yesterday stressed out was not the word!

For over an hour I sat down in front of the washing machine typing up a post. If you’ve read my post from a few days ago, you’d know I’m struggling with the WordPress app on my iPhone as well as not having access to the computer and just having a dodgy phone in general. So I sat down for an hour typing up my post within notes before I would copy and paste it into the WordPress page I brought up online using my phone. Does this make sense?
Anyway, I finished typing this post and logged into the web version of WordPress within the browser. I tapped the screen waiting for the paste icon to appear. Nothing. I tapped it again assuming I hadn’t done it correctly the first time. Still nothing. I tried to type into the box and couldn’t see the cursor or what I was typing. I began to get frustrated.

Side note: I definitely think that WordPress is plotting against me!

I tried a lot of things and nothing was working. I gave up typing and threw my phone in the other directon! It turned itself off.. *surprise surprise*┬ádeleting the note and publishing whatever it was I’d written in invisible ink.
That post has since been removed!

Something’s got to give! I either need a new laptop or a new phone! I don’t see WordPress fixing the bugs on this app any time soon!

I have created some posts and put them on adaptive release before I can get back into work on Monday to create some more.

Tech problems over.. For now!

WordPress for iPhones

•October 20, 2014 • 2 Comments

I have been trying to open my WordPress app since I updated it.

Two days ago, iTunes alerted me to the fact that I needed to update the version of WordPress on my phone. As I get irritated by the icon indicated when something is due an upgrade, it didn’t take me long to comply with the request. I set it going and forgot about it until later that day. A little blue dot indicating its completion.

I tried to open the app and as usual, my phone threw me out.
My phone needs an upgrade – I mean it is long overdue. My phone is so slow and confused, it either reacts really slowly or doesn’t react at all. Anyway, I tried to open it a few times and the few times I tried I was thrown out of it, so I left it alone. A few hours later, I tried again, again, I was thrown it. I was getting impatient.

It wasn’t until I tried continuously that I realise the upgrade hadn’t worked.

I had WordPress, but not in a workable form.

As I had neither WordPress for iPhones OR access to a computer – my laptop is still on the blink – I couldn’t post for two days.. :( Makes me sad.

I still haven’t figured out how to make it work so I’ll probably just wait for the ‘bug fixes’ update to be released patiently :)
I should really also get a new laptop.. And upgrade my laptop..
Shoulda, coulda, woulda.. WILL! *sigh* lol

Personal space

I always find it a tad creepy when I’m sitting on the underground and of all the empty seats surrounding me the guy chooses to sit next to me.
I find it weird and I find it uncomfortable. Maybe they are doing it and filming it to see how people react and then put it on YouTube.. Ooh I’m going to be on YouTube!
So the gentleman came and sat next to me. I found it odd as around me alone there were 5 empty seats. Anyway. He kept glancing at me and at one point I looked at him and he was just staring. I quickly turned my glance to the floor.. But wait. Why was I turning away when he was being the weirdo. I still didn’t want to look up though.
Thankfully he got off the train before I had to and went on his merry way.
I do love London.. But sometimes.. :D

Food!

So.. I’m sure you know.. My life is just a major love affair with food.
Yes. Food.

I love cooking it.. Eating it.. Talking about it. It is a major part of my life because a lot of how I try and bring people together is with food.
It is almost that time of the year when I will host my pre-Christmas/holiday dinner party. I have kind of sort of got a menu, but it’s definitely something I still need to work on!
It’s a big part of my life. When I was younger I wanted to be a chef.. But I didn’t like certain things and had allergies to others.. But I still loved to eat.. Still do :)
My food journey is crazy.. Every day I get an email from a food/cooking blog I follow giving me fuel for my addiction.. And I love it!
Food has definitely been one of my favourite journeys and I’m definitely on for the whole ride!xx

Modern Languages..

This evening I started my conversational Portuguese classes.
They will be mainly one-on-one sessions with the teacher and focus on my profession and things related to it as well as covering any other areas I feel that I need to know.
I was entirely serious when I said I wanted to be fluent in Portuguese and am so proud of myself for taking these steps. Soon it will be second nature and instead of having to think about things I will be able to respond naturally. That’s what I’m looking forward to.
I will have classes once a week every Tuesday or Wednesday for however long it takes until I am amazing! I have been warned that I shall receive plenty of homework and should be doing more reading outside of class than he is doing.. Luckily for me that was already the idea..
Now.. If for any reason I feel like running off back to Portugal I will be a pro!
I shall keep you updated with my progress intermittently.

Obrigada, boa noite! :D

I had teriyaki beef fillet with salad.. Sticky rice topped with tuna flakes, tempura vegetables and some orange and red currants for afters..
I love Japanese cuisine.. To be honest there are only a few that I do not like.. Or are not very fond of.. But I definitely love Japanese food.. And I kind of want more..
