Kes veel ei tea, siis Circle K paistab olevat oma autopesu-teisipäevad asendanud Pesupassiga - püsitellimusloogikal automaatpesula teenusega. Katsetasin seda kuu aega ja jagan meelsasti oma kogemust-arvamust nii mõnegi asja kohta, mida tankla koduleht on unustanud mainida. Alustada tuleb sellest, et isa tegi mulle märkuse - kui ma autot ei pese, siis see kaua vastu ei … Continue reading Mida annab Circle K Pesupass?
WHAT YOU SEE IS *NOT* WHAT YOU GET
The prices shown on the web pages of Estonian telecommunication providers are usually twice as high as what the people actually pay. It is general knowledge that you must reach out to service providers and ask for covert deals to get cheaper mobile plans. I usually participate in the circle jerk of contacting providers for … Continue reading WHAT YOU SEE IS *NOT* WHAT YOU GET
Shine bright like a diamond
It was about a week ago when I was strutting down the sidewalk all jolly and joyful, waving my arms around like a newly-appointed beekeeper who accidentally poked a wasp nest, when I must have lost my reflector. It probably got caught behind my flailing arms or was not secured well enough, and just popped … Continue reading Shine bright like a diamond
I’m sorry, I just can’t see it

Dare to adopt a new perspective
Yesterday, I went to buy myself some new glasses. My previous ones had slid off the motorcycle when I was taking off my helmet and landed right underneath my partner's foot. Classic communication error combined with some bad luck. The back-up ones I have been wearing as a temporary replacement are several years old and … Continue reading Dare to adopt a new perspective

A fool can ask … Continue reading Welcome to every researcher’s worst nightmare
Driving in Slush
My Slush certificate came in. It states that I did good in my volunteer position. While I agree with them that I was, indeed, excellent and maybe even surpassed my capabilities as a member of the Drivers team, I do feel that I should mention some things in regard to Slush and volunteering there in … Continue reading Driving in Slush

I have gained a huge amount of knowledge from a variety of different topics ranging from human-computer interaction to user research to … Continue reading Hogwarts on Earth
