It’s Friday I’m in Love!


What’s happening, friends? I’ve nothing much today. That seems to be getting more frequent, eh? Well, I’m still trying to back into blogging like I used to by blogging as much as I can, even if it’s just promotions for a cool new book that I wish I can review but have no time to at the moment or if it’s just random ramblings.

Monday Musings: I need more girly stuff

The week before last, I went to the alumni homecoming at my old firm and I had to borrow my sister’s pants and long cardigan. I also had to dig up some old black office flats because I didn’t have anything else to wear. Sister dear has some gorgeous wedges and pumps, but unfortunately my feet are a size larger than hers. Sadness.

Seriously, I need more girly stuff in my closet. Sure, I have some really cool tanks and graphic tees that I usually wear with cute shorts and my sister’s cool cargo skirt (which I luuurve to death), but I need a few pieces that I can wear to slightly more formal or ‘dressed up’ occasions. I can’t really wear my graphic tees all the time, you know. I need a cute blouse or a nice dress so that I won’t look underdressed at these pseudo fancypants events.

I’ve been taking to surfing for cute stuff online and just saving things I like on my shopping cart. I’ve ventured out of the usual sites that I usually look at, and I spotted some pretty cute dresses that I can see myself in over at this site. I have over 20 of them on my wishlist right now. Gah. Must. Have. Them.

Also, I need me some girly shoes! Strappies will work too. Ever since I started working from home, I stopped wearing closed shoes aside from my football cleats, my running shoes, and my sneakies. Other than those I only wear my beloved flip-flops and a ratty old pair of sandals. I am in serious need of some cute strappy sandals, ballerina flats, or even cute wedges. I kind of want one of those spike studded things. Flats and wedges too and maybe even some killer heels.

Eep, I need to set aside a few bucks for the girlification of my closet. I can’t remember the last time I shopped for something other than ultimate frisbee stuff. LOL.

Anyway, say hello to Monday! I know, right? ;) 

Have a great week, friends! :)

Funky Things Friday!

I just realized that this blog will most probably eventually undeniably slowly turn into a writer’s slash book blog in the next coming months, what with the almost kinda regular book reviews and the constant rambling about writing. No biggie. It seems to be inevitable and I like the thought that my blog is going in some sort of egg-citing direction (exciting for moi anyway). I will still keep my semi-regular features though because I don’t think I can do away with them. I’ll still do Inspiration Monday, What’s Up Wednesday, T-Shirt Friday, and, of course, Funky Things whatever-Day! Yay. Anyway, shall provide more details in my end-of-the-month recap. April is almost at an end after all and I have stuff to report.

For now, on to a few FUNKY THINGS! Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

Travel hacking, location rebels, and other new words I learned this week

I spent most of the week reading about people who quit their 9-5 jobs, packed their stuff and became travel hackers and location independent self-sufficient people. Really interesting and inspiring stuff. Really distracting, too. I haven’t been so focused on work this week. I really should do more if I want to get more monies. I mean, I gotta remember that I’m on a no work-no pay thing here. I have ongoing jobs but I haven’t finished them yet and I’m nearing the deadline. GAH.


Anyway, I know I’ll be able to finish the work. I’m just feeling a little frustrated over myself right now because I know I can do so much more. This would be one of those low weeks, I guess. I’m thinking now maybe that’s why I’ve been more inclined to read about other people who have been through something like this than to do actual work. These inspiring people have a lot of advice and tips. Sometimes I don’t know where to start. Just learning all about these super cool terms can be overwhelming. Travel hacking? Location rebels? Rabblement? Whut?

Know what I’m talking about by reading about these travel hackers, freedom thinkers, and location rebels.

Would you ever take that road? If money wasn’t an issue, what’s the one thing you would be or would do?

I waste my time on the most trivial of things

I have only just discovered and its addictive appeal. Yes, apparently I live under a rock, thank you very much. So now I’m looking at these pretty pretty “look at me, look at me” pages and I want a pretty one, too. Check out some of the ones they featured. I’ve no idea who some of these people are, but they sure are creative.
Happy week to you, friends. May you be blessed with monies and rainbows.

Funky Things Thursday!

Tonight, we’re flying off to CDO, a.k.a. home sweet home, and then going up to Malaybalay, Bukidnon for the Love Ultimate Tournament. Woohoo. But before I do that, I leave you with cool tees and cool stuff. Woohoo.

Sad T-Rex T-Shirt (Loops and Pluto): “If ur happy & u know it clap your… oh.” HAH awesome! I really do love t-rexes. Reminds me of this adorable t-rex.

Toilet Shot Glasses (Busted Tees): Sooo if you use this, you can all pretend you’re doing pee shots? HAH. So cool, though. So cool.

The Lord of the Rings Minifigs (The Fancy): LOTR FTW! I actually want these things just so I could recreate scenes from the trilogy. That would be so cool. And so geeky.

And that’s it. Til next week!

Of new year’s eve movie marathons and a new online find

New Year’s Eve movie marathons

I’m not sure when it started, but for a few years now, a movie marathon has become a new year’s eve/day thing at our house. We’ve had The Lord of the Rings running consistently now. On some years, we threw in a couple of the Starwars flicks when LOTR was done. We usually start any time between the day before new year’s eve or on the day itself or right after the midnight celebration. This year I started it early just because. Watched it a few days ago. LOTR still rocks after all these years.
“But the fat hobbit, he knowsss…”

What are your New Year’s Eve traditions?

Another online find – Camtica, screen recorder software
I scour the net a lot for tutorials, especially on fixing blog templates and what not. Anyway, I found out about this new screen recorder software that would be really great for making tutorials. It’s called Camtica, a Screen Recorder Software. With Camtica you can make recordings of your computer screen so you can use it to make presentations, tutorials, etc. You can record any kind of computer activity and include animated mouseclicks, webcam and voice over, and save it in WMV or AVI format. It’s actually pretty useful for creating training or teaching videos, video presentations, tutorials and what not.
You can read more about it here. There’s an ongoing giveaway on the Camtica website but it’s only until Dec. 31 so you better hurry if you’re interested. Hah.



Another online find: UNESTABLISH

You know I’m very open about my love for online t-shirt stores. I actually love browsing online stores in general. One of my recent finds is UNESTABLISH, a multi-label online retail store with some pretty cute and unique items. 
Here are some of my favorite picks!
