I personally think that social media is not as fun/interesting as it used to be. I don’t know why. Maybe because some of my friends are not using it any more? There’re less interactions with my friends there than before. We are really becoming adults, aren’t we? Hahaha
Due to that, I don’t think i’ll check up on my social media often and will be more into writing blogs. To all my friends who read this, let’s write blog, too, so I can read your meaningful stories (or random stories is okay haha) rather than stare at social media (which is not interested anymore for me) hahaha
See you on the next post! Have a good weekend! ?
Some important points from article I read Celebrating Design Without Contending With It (http://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/celebrating-design-without-contending-with-it)
Maybe the phenomenon of the “dumb” yet successful, familiar in many fields, applies equally in design.
Design (they are forever pointing out) is not merely an exercise in superficial aesthetics or styling, as the public may assume. It is, rather, a far more serious matter of problem-solving and experience-shaping, driven by a uniquely rigorous approach to the human-made world in all its dimensions.
how the design of any given space “really affects how we feel, how we behave”
“Design is not just a visual thing. It’s a thought process. It’s a skill. Ultimately, design is a tool to enhance our humanity. It’s a frame for life.”
Well, see you on next post. Cheers! ?
