What am I up to?

3 Comments    [ Posted in Personal ]

As usual, I don’t actively write anything here even after promising multiple times. Just to give a glance on what am i doing these days, I just summarized my schedules and on-going activities.

Studies
Went through the toughest semester at IU, finished it up with 3.3 GPA at last. New semester has just started yesterday.

Travel
I have not been able to go anywhere for past couple of months. Its been a long time since i saw the beach!

Photography
Don’t ask! Shot few photos at cousin’s wedding last week. I can’t find myself enough time to test my new D90 thoroughly. Might plan a trip coming sunday 🙂

Work
Oh, I never mentioned, my latest project is Zaiqa.com, which is passing through a tough emergence period. The site covers daily Pakistani Recipes aired on Geo TV, Masala TV, and ARY Zauq.
For past couple of hours, I have been trying to integrate current user database and login system with vBulletin 4, which is quite a headache, and unexpectedly driving me crazy with little, complicated, Fatal errors.

Future Plans
Since Blockstatus.com is declining, and I don’t see any growth opportunity, I’m trying to divert its current visitors to a related, new website, which could at least help me cover server expenses and other projects development and marketing cost.

Got the Nikon D90 finally

Nikon D90

After waiting almost a year, finally got the slightly used Nikon D90 with 18-105mm lens today.

Personally i do not like 18-105mm for its high barrel distortion. 16-85mm can be an ideal lens, but cost Rs.50,000+ 🙁
