I loved Mean Girls!

Posted by austenfan at 12/29/2010 01:42:00 PM 0 comments
I'm sure many of you will agree with me when I say that "Mean Girls" is one of, if not, the best teen movies of all time!

This image is not mine, and was taken from somewhere around the world wide web.

Tina Fey was such an awesome genius for coming up with the movie's storyline. I thought Rachel McAdams played the role of the pretty and popular yet evil "Regina". The two other mean girls were perfect for their respective roles too. And yes, let's talk about Lindsay Lohan. This movie made me a (sort of) fan of hers as well. I decided to go and watch her other movies as well after seeing this one. Now, it's just really disappointing to see her caught up with drugs and other various offenses. Well, it's sad to see anyone who used to be that famous go through that. I hope she recovers, though, even after so many failed rehab admissions. Hmm, maybe she should try going to some other los angeles detox rehabs as they might be good for her. By the way, were you a Lindsay fan as well? What among her movies did you like the best? :)

Tumblr ?

I don't have a Tumblr account. I don't have an account, but I do get why people are (a bit) crazy over it. The themes look really cute and it's great that there's this sort of "follower" application to let those that follow your account be updated whenever you have new content. Did I get that right? I'm only guessing here. Haha.

With this blog, and another one that I'll be updating as soon as I write this, frankly, I don't see the need to create a Tumblr account. I mean, there's only so much that I can write about, right? And, well, I like my blogs just fine. :) Still, we'll see... I might be persuaded to creating one, when I become fascinated enough over it.

But, do you have one? Then, give me those links and I'll come visit!

I love online banking!

Posted by austenfan at 12/22/2010 10:12:00 PM 0 comments
Online banking has been such a huge help for me. I can transfer funds between accounts easily. I can use it to withdraw funds from my Paypal account. I haven't tried it yet, but I've heard that I can even pay my bills online too! It's really such a huge help.

I've been meaning to try dabbling in stock exchange as well, through the use of an online trading service. I'm not sure of the terms I'm using as I don't know much about stock exchange as of the moment. Haha. Anyway, I really want to learn about stocks since I've been hearing so many great things about it! These days, we must be conscious of how we spend and save our money if we want to be able to afford to buy cars and health plans (like a plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield NC) soon! So, I say NO to unnecessary spending and YES to alternative income resources like stock exchange!

How about you? Do you have any other source of income right now? Come on, tell me about it! :)

I have so many unmoderated comments for this blog! I don't know when I'll be able to approve them all. You understand why I have to moderate the comments though, right? I've been receiving so much spam comments for this blog that I decided to disable the auto-approving of the comments.

By the way, spam comments are those comments that don't have anything to do with whatever you've written on your blog entry. They frequently have links attached to them, with most of these links not really related to my blog's purpose. I actually don't know these comments were manually submitted or were auto-generated since I've been seeing a lot of them in other blogs as well.

I'll definitely try to moderate some of the other comments, though. Please just wait for it! :)

My new blog is still a bit empty right now... with only just a couple of entries here and there. I've been a bit preoccupied lately that I haven't come up with any new blog posts for it. By the way, have you seen it yet? In case you haven't, here's your chance, go take a look at it now!

Alright, I have to go to sleep soon or else I'm going to have to use some wrinkle creams that work from staying up too late. But first, let me just say that there are gonna be some changes for this blog. I won't be writing about books and love (mushy, I know!) related things on this blog anymore. I'll be writing them on my other blog, instead! Wanna know why? Uh, you have to head on to my other blog and find out for yourself. Haha.

So, I guess my blog entries here would be less serious and more... fun and random? Haha, well... we'll see, but, I'll definitely try my best! :)

Threads are full of surprises!

Posted by austenfan at 12/11/2010 09:40:00 PM 0 comments
Reading people's conversations in forum threads has always been a fun pastime. I get to read other people's reactions regarding certain topics, at times even being pleasantly surprised that their opinion about some things are the same as mine. These includes favorite romance novels, reviews of certain gadgets, and well, anything else that can possibly a topic.

Earlier, I stumbled upon a thread where the posters were recommending romance books that they find really good, so me being a book lover, decided to stick around and find out what books they've enjoyed. You know me, I'm always up for a good romance books that'll promise to make to have a happy ending, which involves the exchange of promise rings between the hero and heroine. Haha. Anyway, I read a discussion among the posters about a particular part of a certain book. It seemed like they were confused about what actually happened, since the author didn't exactly write it in a very straightforward way. A posted actually e-mailed the author and asked a clarification regarding the matter. Unbelievable, right? I don't mean that in a bad way, of course. I'm actually a bit in awe of that person. I admire that person's passion and intensity toward that book. Now, I'm wondering when or if I might ever do the same. Hmm, I wonder what book will make me do it? :)

Missing book giveaways

Posted by austenfan at 12/11/2010 09:32:00 PM 0 comments
I want to start joining book giveaways again. I really want to get my hands on some very, very promising books that I've been seeing around book blogs lately. Once I had the time to go blog hopping again, I'm definitely joining more book giveaways!

It's amazing how generous bloggers are, to be hosting these giveaways just to give thanks to their readers. They don't just give away books, but also makeup, accessories, gadgets (whoa), and yes, even some cash! It's amazing, really.

If you want to join some of these wonderful giveaways, all you have to do is look them up online. There are even blogs that just post notices of the giveaways going around the blogging world. Hmm, it looks so fun to be able to post giveaways like that that it makes me think of creating my own blog, where I can blog about those giveaways. Haha. Watch out for that (if I ever get around to creating it)!

Been busy

Posted by austenfan at 12/09/2010 08:08:00 PM 0 comments
I haven't been a very good blogger lately, sorry for that. I've been busy reading books (love stories, you know how I love them) that I haven't had the time to blog for a while.

By the way, have you guys seen the latest Harry Potter movie? I really liked it! It went beyond my expectations... or maybe that's because I've forgotten most of what was on the book that I was pleasantly surprised by most of the scenes in the movie. Anyway, it's really good, so if you've seen the last six Harry Potter movies and haven't seen this one yet, I suggest you go to the cinema nearest to you and watch it before they stop showing it.

It was nice to see the HP world again, the steel buildings that looked a bit ancient yet magical, the unusual and fun magical items that they use, and of course, the familiar characters in the series that everyone has come to love - Harry, Ron, and Hermione, most especially. :)

De-stress again

Posted by austenfan at 12/08/2010 05:03:00 PM 0 comments
Looking for a job is pretty hard. I didn't appreciate how hard it was the first time I applied, since the whole recruitment process for my first job was relatively fast-paced. But now that I've decided to do something else, well yeah, it is really hard that sometimes I just want to forget about the application process for a bit and just read a good book.

I shouldn't let that make me feel down, though, not if I want to have enough money to buy an insurance plan like those that are listed on For now, though, I'm trying to find some other ways to earn money. Hmm, maybe I'll try doing some online tutoring and see how that goes for me. Anyway, I'll be posting a list of some ways to earn money if and when I'm able to look for them! Haha.

And oh yeah, have you seen my new blog? It's at Hope you can visit it!

Why am I not athletic?

Posted by austenfan at 12/05/2010 05:42:00 PM 0 comments
Ever since I was a kid, I've never been much into playing kiddie games that involves running a lot. Haha. Now, don't start judging me here. The truth is, I also played the games that were popular with kids those days - I had to or else I would have been such an outcast. Actually, I think I stopped liking it when I got wounded during one of our running games. I can't really remember what it was called.

Another reason why I'm not very athletic is my lack of skill for sports. I like playing some sports but, I'm not that good at it. Still, I hope I can develop some kind of skill for sports. There are so many types of sports that I haven't tried yet so, who knows? I might find myself surprisingly good at football! Hmm, I might have to a bit of research on that. If ever I do become interested in the sport, I hope my friends will support me and maybe even buys some football gifts for me! :) I could also try basketball since I love watching it, anyway, so I might as well learn how to play it, right?

Hmm, I wonder if I'll ever become that sporty. Haha.

Gadgets love

Posted by austenfan at 12/03/2010 11:30:00 PM 0 comments
I'm not a very gadget-knowledgeable person. I don't own a lot of gadgets. I can probably count all the gadgets I have using one hand - mobile phone, laptop, camera, iPod nano. Hmm, that's actually all I could think of. I don't own any gaming consoles, though I would really want to have my own Wii. I've seen it being played at the malls, and it looks pretty fun! Still, gadgets are not at my priority list right now. Haha.

Anyway, here are a list of gadgets that I would like to have (if ever someone would like to buy it for me or if I have enough money to buy one):

1. iPhone - Yep, I would love to own an iPhone. I know it makes me sound as if I'm just a trend follower, but I think an iPhone would be really fun to have. I haven't heard many complaints about it so I guess it's pretty durable. Plus, it would be nice to be able to buy some Iphone accessories to enhance the phone even more.

2. DSLR camera - I don't know much about photography, but it seems like if I ever get to own a DSLR camera, I'd get to learn more about it. Actually, it's more like I'll strive to learn more about photography once I get a cam like this. :)

3. Wii - As I said before, it looks like a fun piece. Plus, it'll let me play tennis (for a bit) and you all know how much I love watching Prince of Tennis, right?

New Kdrama!

Posted by austenfan at 12/02/2010 08:35:00 PM 0 comments
I'm about to watch a new Kdrama, that is, once it loads completely. It's "Mary Stayed Out All Night", starring You're Beautiful's star Jang Geun Suk and Moon Geun Young. I'm not sure if they really are the main stars of the show since I haven't done enough research on this show, but they're the ones I'm looking forward to watch the most. Haha.

In case you didn't know, Moon Geun Young played the role of the young Jenny in the Korean Drama "Endless Love: Autumn In My Heart", which was kinda a huge hit when it first aired here. I first learned about "Mary Stayed Out All Night" from Mysoju, since it occupied the top spot in the Top 25 Dramas of the Week, but did not pay much attention to it since I was still occupied with watching Prince of Tennis. Earlier though, I saw a clip of the shooting of the show on KBS World, and it looked fun, not to mention, Jan Geun Suk looked really cute, and now, here I am waiting for the streaming to completely load. :)

It looks like I can start watching it now, I hope it's good!

Dubbing sounds really different.

Posted by austenfan at 12/01/2010 09:00:00 PM 0 comments
I used to just watch Prince of Tennis on Hero TV. I would patiently wait for the next episode each day to be able to catch my favorite characters on TV. Every time I watch a 20 to 25 minute long episode, I would end up feeling all happy and excited for the next episode.

Then, I watched the show through streaming and I fell in love with the show even more. The lines were so much better when read from a subtitle than when translated and dubbed to a different language. Hearing the original character voices was also great. Still, I appreciate the effort our local dubbers give in creating these shows. :) But, yeah, it's really better if you hear the original voices of the characters, especially if they're your favorites. :)

Since I'm becoming really fond of the show, I'm trying to look for stuffed toys of the characters. It would make me very excited to be able to see some POS systems take care of my purchases. I hope I find some Prince of Tennis related merchandise! I'm planning to look for them at Comic Alley, do you guys know any other anime stores?
