BEDA: Thoughts On Ideas

Clearing through the backblog…

Recently I’ve been having lots of ideas about how to be more creative with my spare time (when I have any)! Right now I’m spending a lot of time with friends, going swimming, climbing and tonight, for the first time, trampolining. But my creative side has been slightly neglected. I guess I’ve made a few videos like Japan Stop Motion, The Arrest and Only Flirt in Flirt, but I want to do more! I’ve also been meddling with WordPress plugins for a local church, but that’s all said and done now too. So I kind of feel between projects… but that’s not because I’m short on ideas! I have tons…

Turn the WordPress plugin I developed for the church site into a customisable plugin that anyone can download and use on their site. This would be more for my benefit to see what the process of submitting a plugin is like.

Further develop my undergraduate project into a more fully-featured mobile phone app that can be used for visitors to the University to get more information about the buildings they’re looking at.

A video series called Secret Guildford, where a different guest every week shows the audience their favourite places to go in Guildford. The idea being that everyone has their own “secret guildford” based around their interests and tastes – mine centres around drinking… figures. There’s nothing I know like this and I think it would really benefit local businesses too. Out of all the ideas, this one is possibly my favourite.

Get better at playing the ukulele. I’m still playing it a few times a week – sometimes to the distress of my housemates – and I’ve got a load of chords and strumming patterns under my belt, but I’d like to get better at picking, and palm muting. I’d also like to write my own songs, but one step at a time…

Develop a new android app. I got the bug during my project last year, but I’ve yet to get an idea that entices me enough to write something new… I guess ideally it would be computer vision-related, but I dunno.

So yea, I should really pick one or two and get to it! Until tomorrow x
