Death to Beguilement

Leave a comment

guile /gahyl/ noun: Insidious cunning in attaining a goal; crafty or artful deception; duplicity One of the meanings of beguile is ‘to charm or to divert’.     To comment on someone being ‘without guile’ is a great compliment on his character and morality.     Unfortunately for us, we live in a world today with an unprecedented amount of entertainment and distraction. Never has there been an age (I think) that we humans are subject to […]

Last Wednesday I received the offer to the Master of Architecture course at Melbourne Uni. To be quite honest I had been waiting for this offer like a 5-year-old waiting to wake up on Christmas day morning. In my defence this is something I worked very hard for.

However, there was a sense of freedom and naivety in the design that […]

I try to write one blog post every week. Might seem like a bit of a mission, but if time is scheduled for dedicated blog writing time. It could be something possible. I’m also trying to make schedules to form habits, otherwise they may never happen. I think the trick is to write down a little bit whenever a topic comes to mind, that way you’ll have a lot of subjects in reserve that can […]

Don’t just wait for the new year to start something, everyweek, everyday is a […]
