Episode 34: The Pro Sleek Skatathon 2013

    Hi guys! So a few weeks ago, I posted on this blog about joining a skating club, becoming the head of media and marketing there and trying to organize the first skating marathon in West Africa. You can read the full post here. I wanted to tell you how it all went sooner but ever since the event, I've been so busy with post-event work (like updating the official website with info) that I haven't had time to post on my blog.

Episode 33: Which 8th Generation game console should you buy in 2013?

     The video game industry, when it comes to hardware, has its own unique ecosystem. Unlike phones, tablets and computers, which typically have a new iteration in a hardware series annually, it takes an average of 6 years before new video game hardware is released. The 8th generation of game consoles began last year with the release of the Wii U, and will go into full swing this month as the other two major players release their consoles: The Playstation 4 (November 15th in the US and Canada, November 29th in the UK, and February 22nd 2014 in Japan) and the Xbox One (November 22nd everywhere). If you're thinking of buying a new console during the 2013 holiday period, here are the most important factors to take into consideration before picking which one to buy.

Episode 32: Pro Sleek Nigeria

      So I mentioned in my last post that I picked up roller skating this year. While I'm still far from being a pro, I'm no longer a beginner and I'm confident enough to skate outside a skating park, as long as the road isn't too busy. I can't pull off any fancy stunts yet though. And what I do when I get to a speed bump is called hopping (usually followed by a goofy landing), not jumping. Problem is there are barely any skates my size so it's either my legs are gonna rip the shoes open eventually, or the size of my feet is gonna drop from all the squeezing. Joining Pro Sleek Skate Club, the skating club at my university, was more than just adding a new hobby to my repertoire. It opened up a new series of events in my life.

Episode 31: Where did your weirdest best friend go?

      Hello dear readers (the few who would be left at this point). I apologize for barely posting anything this year, but it's probably been the craziest year of my life so far and I haven't been able to slow down enough to blog about it. I've done everything from learning to skate, training for a basketball tournament, getting my heart broken, creating a website for the first time (I'm a software developer, not a website designer), putting out my first android app, learning to create software as part of a team of programmers, working on creating my first video game, working at an NGO that deals with economic process technologies, travelling by road to another country for the first time, pissing people off, getting really pissed off and I'm not even going to start talking about my spiritual life and my relationship with girls because those are probably the two most exhaustive stories for me this year.


I still do a fair amount of drawing.
