13 November 2015. Journalling as it happens…

  • This post is officially the first day of the journalling experiment. I learn and do so many things in a day that will only become a memory in the future. Journalling at the end of the day is also a huge task, especially when I am already exhausted. So why not record them as it happens?
  • 12.30am Starting the day with Sim City Buildit Game. Now at Level 29 and focusing on producing export goods.  image
  • 1.00am Installed PDF Expert App. May need it to fill or sign PDF forms.  image
  • 1.30am Read article about Self-hosted crowdfunding – raising $100k in 30 days.
    • Build an email list first
    • Find people who need your solution
    • Be seen at places where people are looking
    • Use google keywords with high traffic and weak competition
    • Give something of value for free
    • Survey early subscribers before launch
    • Gather feedback to improve product
    • Build a blog with minimal posts

  • 9.00am Burning DVDs image  …and printing DVDs.Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 8.38.45 am These are the last few DVDs I am producing. The future of media delivery is online.
  • 10.00am Quoted a customised videography course for the end of the year.
  • 10.30am Sold a Galaxy S6 Case on Amazon… Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 10.57.21 amWhat is Damask? Damask (Arabic) is a reversible figured fabric of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibres, with a pattern formed by weaving.
  • 12.30pm Delivered the DVDs. I think my ancestors are from colder climate places. Perspired profusely in just 5 minutes under the sun! In Holland Village and cannot find a Mac nearby. image Discovered Holland Village MRT and  headed for Farrer Road MRT thinking that’s where City Square Mall is, but wrong, it’s Farrer Park MRT!
  • 3.00pm At Punggol Field Macdonalds. Finally connected my Windows 10 Lenovo tablet to Wireless@SGx. It’s a hassle. Same user name and password as Wireless@SG, but logging in is a pain (one time pain I hope). Follow instructions here.
  • Another official Star Wars 7 trailer. Getting exciting.

  • Lessons learnt
    • Email notification link under buy button
    • Farrer Road MRT is not Farrer Park MRT
    • Damask is a reversible fabric pattern
  • Ended the day watching TV. “Super Girl” and “Cowboys and Aliens“. It’s entertaining seeing James Bond and Han Solo in the same movie! ;p
