I’m feeling it, I’m at a point where you begin to realize you’re getting old, I hear in the news that Spainsh government is planning to “help” young people to get new jobs, well I see… spanish government thinks that young people is people who are younger that 25, well I’m about to be 27 and I feel young, I know I’m not so into parties and I’m even thinking about a pension provision but what the hell is happening here, I guess I’m old but just because of my age, I mean I don’t have a house or a car o even a adult life, but somethings that have been happening lately make me think just because I’m a little bit more… experienced I can’t do young things, I know many young people incapable to do what I’m doing right now, so what does it mean to be young? I’m lost, I want to travel, I want to spend time at bed, I want to be irresponsable but it looks those clichés are not for me anymore.
I’m an undergraduate student doing final year in graphic designing and then what, maybe I’m old but I have the same questions as a young student or even worst, when my mom was my age, she was planning to have a second baby, she has money stability, se had a house, a car, an adult life, but me, I’m trying my best to realize what is my place in this world
Well you want to know what I have to say to this people… screw you! What the hell! I want to take risks, I want to right about my personal life, I want to have a tumblr (yes, somebody told me that I’m too old to be in many social places)
I’ve wanted to write this post for many weeks, it’s been almost two months since I presented my final project, it’s weird to think that I’m finally engineer, ( yay! ) sounds far away the long days and nights that I spent learning, designing and developing this project, it’s strange to get home and realize I don’t have to be awake all night writing code… but we’re not here to write about me (blink, blink), we’re here to talk about Alood .
Alood is the name of the Android application I developed as final project using the framework for php Symfony; Alood name comes from the union of the word Allergy and the word Food, and as its name suggests, It’s an application that helps people with food allergies to have better quality of life by allowing its users to scan the barcode of a product and know its components.
Here is a screenshot of the results :)
With a tear in my eyes I introduce you my lovely baby!

Lately I’ve been trying to draw again, I’m aware I’m not the best at drawing even the idea of a blank piece of paper scares the hell out of me, but I know there are thing that are easier to explain when you draw, so I’ve been looking for a daily drawing project when I ran into this beautiful project by Olivier Flandrois, a very unknown man who i think is obsessed with hair, his daily drawing project is a visual study of the human being hairy system. A daily graphic research with genuine built and hairy models: bears, beavers, big cats, mice, roosters, weasels… Just beautiful and expressive!
And what about you, do you have any daily project? Any recommendations for a drawing newbie?

And maybe you’re wondering… Who the hell is that Hank? well, he is just a person which, as soon as you read this article is going to make you green with envy, just because you are back at work or school or both and you realize that holidays are over or in my case, that there’re no holidays plan in 2013 for me, so it is in somehow a funny fact that this morning while I was doing my daily blog reading I found myself at Hanks website, an architecture student tired of making models, illustrations and plans (as it happens to all of us who live in this “design environment”) so he just has decided to fulfill one of his ideas. Next step: to buy a bus, and suddenly Hank bought a bus, which with a little help from his friends has become a super luxury caravan, and there’s nothing better to enjoy a caravan than make a long journey across a half of the United States, you can visit his website where everything is very well photographed and conveniently videotaped to make you feel even more jealous! ;)
I wish I could do the same!
