Let’s Give it a Try ( A Geek Post)

In our fast growing world today, technology leads us not only to a new dimension but also to a new more convenient way of living. It has also changed our perception in life and how we should have fun. Most kids and adults today get easily contented if you give them a cool gadget like iPad or pc/console games. How about giving them a board game or card game? I wonder if they’d appreciate that.

Anyway, my bf and I played  Call of Cthulhu the Card Game yesterday. He got it as a Christmas present from his friend. Unlike the other video gamers that I know, he got really happy and satisfied with this non-digital game.

Moving on, the game’s objective is to do missions on the board and the first one to get 3 mission cards wins.

When you use up a pile or piles of mana that you have, place these Cthulhus on the top of the mana pile to indicate that you’ve already used the mana. It remains there till your next turn.

It’s our first time to play this game and we had fun. I’m not fond of card games but this one rocks so I guess everyone should give this a try.
Going back to what I’ve said earlier, I’m not saying that it is wrong to play video games because I myself is a video game enthusiast but I think sometimes we need to take a break from it and try other games as well. The world is full of great things that deserve our attention too.

A Photoblog: ‘Twas 3 Days Before Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration this year. If you’re going to ask me, yes, I had a wonderful Christmas because I celebrated it not only with my family but also with my bf. I didn’t insist or ask him to be with me on this special occassion but HE insisted, how can I say no to that?

Anyway, we went home to my parents last Wednesday with our bags full of raw meat and gifts. So I felt like Santa. Hehe.. 😀 I was glad to see my family again and our pets Pushie and Totoro.

The next day, bf and I decided to take a short walk from the house, to the hotel, grocery shop and back to the house again. The weather was not that good but we’re glad that the snow didn’t melt yet ( ‘coz we’re hoping for a white Christmas).

Here are the shots from our short tour. 🙂 Enjoy!

Let Us Help and Pray

Christmas is only less than a week away but I can hardly feel its spirit because of bad news from my best friends and also because of the disaster that striked my homeland, the Philippines.

Last Saturday, typhoon Sendong hit the northern part of Mindanao(Cagayan de Oro and Iligan) and caused severe damage to the farms, houses and it also caused the lives of 900 plus people and there are more than a 100 plus still missing. This is really one of the worst natural calamities that ever hit the country.

Let us make them feel that they are not abandoned this Christmas and there is always hope.

Some Lessons Learned

I’ve learned that
being in a relationship is not about me anymore.
I just can’t decide anything without asking the other half’s opinion.
it takes a lot of patience to understand his beliefs and principles.
trust should be earned.
the older a person gets, the harder it is to correct his/her mistakes.
we make our own happiness.
old people ain’t always right.
we should never stop dreaming.

fear is just a warning signal of a coming danger.

H&M’s Virtual Dressing Room

I’m so happy I checked HM’s site again because they have lots of beautiful stuff there now. 🙂 Some of the items are on sale too! So go to their website and check! You can also try on the clothes virtually(how cool is that!). It is really convenient especially for those who doesn’t have the time to go to shopping malls.

I made 2 attires, one casual and one semi formal. 🙂

Let me know what you think. Have a nice day!

My Wednesday Addams Look

Last week, my bf and I were invited to a birthday dinner party. I wasn’t in my usual mood because I was thinking of my exams, so I didn’t bother about my looks too much than I normally do before I attend a party.
I found my 5 year old black collared dress which I last wore on the 17th of May 2007 in a good condition so I decided to wear it to the party. The collar, the cuffs and the very bottom of the dress are black silk.

When my bf saw me, my look, he said that I look creepy and when I asked him why, he said that I almost looked like Wednesday Addams here so I replied him “Oh not yet, I have to braid my hair first!. Then he asked me not to. :p lol. 
Personally I don’t find Wednesday creepy. How about you? Does she give you the creeps?

A Student’s Blah Blahs: The Gloomy Times

I’ve been feeling down for many months now. There are lots of things that needed to be done like bills, school works, exams and not to forget other factors such as anxiety, sickness and stress. As a result, I got depressed, frustrated and suicidal but thank God my brains are still working or else I might have been 6 feet under. During these gloomy times, my senses wake me up and it makes easy for me to reflect for all those things that affect me. Thus helping me to distinguish what is right from wrong. However it is not an easy task for me because I’m not that good in setting priorities even though I know what I want and what I need in my life. I think I worry too much about the problems and negative issues.
But I’m not giving up. I told myself that I’m going to fight and try to be optimistic at all times. So here’s the self-help list I made to help me deal with depression, frustration and anxiety.
  1. Commiting failure is normal.
  2. Suicide is never a solution to problems.
  3. Tell someone what you feel and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  4. Cry when you have to.
  5. Take a break.
  6. Always be prepared.
  7. Don’t procastinate.
