Geeks Do it Better #1

As I am trying to redesign my blog from scratch, I realized that I don't have a single geek-related feature. Some type of daily, weekly or at least monthly outlet for the geekness in me. So let's all welcome the "geeks do it better" -hopefully- weekly feature! *enthusiastic applause* It will appear in your monitors on Mondays or Tuesdays, 'cause it's proven that your week can't be weak, if you think like a geek. Ok I just made it up. But it's true.

Καθώς προσπαθώ να σχεδιάσω το ιστολόγιό μου από το μηδέν συνειδιτοποίησα ότι δεν έχω ούτε ένα τοσοδούλι ημερήσιο, εβδομαδιαίο ή έστω μηνιαίο αφιέρωμα που να λειτουργεί ως διέξοδος για τις geeky σκέψεις μου. Οπότε ας καλωσορίσουμε όλοι με ένα θερμό χειροκρότημα το εβδομαδιαίο -ευελπιστώ- αφιέρωμα "geeks do it better", το οποίο θα μεταδίδεται στους δέκτες σας συνήθως τις Δευτέρες ή τις Τρίτες. Και αυτό γιατί είναι κοινό μυστικό πως "αν σαν geek περνάς την μέρα, όλα είναι πιο ωραία", ειδικά αν αυτή η μέρα είναι μια σαν την Δευτέρα.


isn't this the best thing you saw today? ...


... I mean the best thing apart from this ?

This week I have for you some cool-until-the-moon-and-back doodles by Lim Heng Swee, which steal the show.You can find these and many more in his Etsy shop.

Have a great geeky week!

Αυτήν την εβδομάδα έχω για σας μερικά κουλ-όσο-δεν-πάει-και-λίγο-παραπάνω σκιτσάκια του Lim Heng Swee, που κλέβουν την παράσταση. Αυτά και άλλα πολλά μπορείτε να βρείτε στο Etsy shop του.

Καλή geeky εβδομάδα!

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
