I'm As UnCreative As Can Be!

Posted by austenfan at 7/23/2009 03:30:00 PM 7 comments
So it's that time of the year when we have to practice our smiles and think of clever ways to pose if we want to make our graduation/yearbook pics even a tiny bit interesting. I guess my problem's pretty obvious: I'm at a loss. For possible creative shots. Or shot (I'm still not sure how many shots there are). But then again, there are just those lovely lovely pictures that I'd just love to hmm, mimic (?) :p

Here are some of them:

Audrey Hepburn! A girl can dream, right? :)
Now, if only I can find something like those pearls and that something she's holding (a pipe?)

Very cool, indeed. But where do I get a car? And is it even allowed to do a shoot outdoors? :p

Another cute pic. Though I doubt I could make my hair look all wavy and beautiful and messy-yet-not-really like that. And did I mention the petals?!

If you have any suggestions, just drop me a comment! :)

And before I forget, Frances at Topaz Horizon is hosting another contest. This time, it's for a Moleskine notebook and a P500 Avalon.ph GC! For more details, do visit her blog!

I Can't Think of a Title, So Let's Just Call This As It Is.

You must have noticed that I haven't been blogging as much these last couple of weeks. That's because schoolwork just keeps on coming. And coming. And coming. And coming. I'm not exaggerating, believe me. If that's not enough, on Fridays, I have classes from 7:30am to 5pm (no breaks in between!) :(

Aside from that, I've become addicted to joining book giveaways lately. Go check out my other blog and see for yourself.

So there you have it. If I'm not at school, I'm looking 'round the net for book contests. Or I'm sleeping. :p

So, to anyone who have been visiting this blog for the past few weeks: Sorry for not being to blog hop and drop back EC's. I'll try to visit back in the coming days. :)

I'm the Queen of Typos! *Grumbles*

I admit it. I've never been proud of my typing skills. When I was in grade school, I used to envy my mom whenever she would look at a copy of whatever she's typing (which were usually my school projects, LOL) and just press down the keys without even bothering to look at both the keyboard and the monitor if she's doing it right. So I asked her how she does that and she said something like, 'You'll be the same when you get older'. Yeah, right. :p

When I was a high school freshman, we were supposed to create our own 'publication' for our computer class. Nothing grand, just something to help you hone your Pagemaker skills. One time, I was typing up an article I made for that when one of my classmates suddenly came over my workplace.

Our conversation:
(translated to English for the benefit of everyone)

Me: (typing)
Classmate: Hey, do you want me to type that up for you?
Me: Huh? Why? Don't you have something else to do?
Classmate: Yeah, but it looks like it'll take you all day to finish that.
Me: (to myself: WTF???????? I can't believe he just said that! (I mean, we weren't even close so I couldn't take that one lightheartedly.) Who does he think he is, he doesn't even type that fast himself! You... You... You just wait! I'll show you!)

Of course I never said any of those things to him. Back then, I was the girl who was always quiet and never got mad at anybody. :)

And so I just said:

(putting on my poker face) No, thanks. I can manage.

Now, I guess my typing abilities have improved a bit, but still not as good as I would have wanted to be.

Just look at what Typing Maniac thinks of me.

Sheesh.

Remember that contest I joined? Well, I won. Congrats to me! haha.

It's the first time anyone shipped anything to me, as in solely to me, so of course I was a bit excited and had to take pics. LOL.

So here they are:

(I told you I was excited!)

And here are the prizes!

Thanks again Frances for the wonderful prizes!
