2012 Resolution #1 and Discovering Lightbulbs

Posted on January 13, 2012 by Chen-Po Sun | 0 Comments

Why, hello there Mr Blog, its been a while! Time has certainly flown by and its now 2012. Actually 13 days into 2012 and I'm only just getting started on thinking of what I want to achieve for the year. 

Which kicks me off into...

Resolution #1: Less time slacking off, more time blogging

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to motivate myself into learning. By looking out for content, I would be able to discover interesting and inspiring things around me, learn new skills and also analyse and discover myself better. As you can see by my meagre 2011 effort, I quickly forgot all about that and so this year, I plan to be more diligent about blogging.

I won't just be blogging about my products and updates to my store. I'm planning on sharing many more things with all of you. Innovative products that I've discovered, interesting websites, fun games, inspiring works of art or ideas and also I plan to bring a bit more of my personal life onto here. 

So I hope you all will come along with me on my journey in discovering the plethora of amazingness that exists in the world.

Starting with this truly awesome staircase. I saw a photo of this and it just made my brain start ticking. I can't find any info on where this is, I believe I read somewhere that it was in a lighthouse but for the life of me, I can't find that link anymore. It made me wonder how the design process went. The way I imagine it, it went something like this: Architect was having an 'architect's block', starts doodling pictures of himself/herself coming up with ideas, ie stick figure with light bulb, "Wait a minute, lightbulb! That's it!" and the rest, as they say... is an amazing staircase.

I really would like to see this in person because now I'm wondering how obvious the lightbulb shape is in the building. Or is it something that the photographer discovered when walking around figuring out how best to photograph the place? I like to think that from the 'usual' viewpoint, you would just see a normal winding staircase but if you walk to some back corner, suddenly you get this very interesting perpective. 

Which is how I want to start looking at things around me, to really take the time and ponder "What if?" and maybe I will discover lightbulbs everywhere too. :)
