It’s now finally March. It’s odd to think that almost a quarter of the year the has gone by already. So far we haven’t had an awful lot other than the cold, harsh winter weather, the brit awards and a dress that changes colour, but 2015 is starting to take shape and I’m excited for …

This week I've decided to take a break from Social Media to try and use my time in a more productive way. I'm going to write up the results at the end of the week :)
Social media is eating into more and more of my time with little to show for it. I'm taking a week break from social media to make better use of my time.

Today I did an interview with Zac Fox talking about some of his amazing birds eye photos over Chelmsford.

The pictures taken from his drone give some well known places in Chelmsford a whole new perspective.
View over Galleywood, taken from above Galleywood Common. One of my mates Zac, who’s an avid photographer has just put up a really awesome and stunning video of him flying his drone over places in Chelmsford, and the video makes for a really interesting watch. Flying hundreds of feet above the houses, Zac is able to get some …

Here's a list of the things I never got told about blogging and that I wish I'd known starting out
I’ve been blogging on and off now for a good couple of years. I’ve blogged about many topics and only this one has really gone anywhere. When I first got into blogging it would have been since to know what I was really getting myself into, how much time it would actually take to keep …

David Cameron's call to ban encryption to stop terrorism may sound like a good idea on the surface, but actually he's calling to ban one of the fundamental technologies of the internet (and looking like a total pleb in the process).

Climate Change is something that's always talked about, but we brush it off as not affecting us, but was 2014 the year of no return?
The world went on getter warmer this year, but there is now a glimmer of hope that people might be realizing how bad the situation has become.

No video game of this or the previous generation has flipped its story quite as fantastically as 2K's original <i>BioShock</i>.

As I sit here in my computer chair writing out this post I’m excited. I’m really excited. And rather full. Because it’s the single greatest day of the year: pancake day. I can hear you screaming at your laptop and phone screens as I type this, but now, now settle down. To the layman who …

Ever been to Back Inn Time?

Best restaurant in Chelmsford!
This isn’t really a blog post about anything that I’ve done, nor is it a review either. It’s a post I decided to write to honor my favorite and (in my opinion) the best restaurant in Chelmsford, heck Essex. I’m talking about Back Inn Time. Back Inn Time is a bit of a cult classic in …
