What to talk about

Posted by austenfan at 9/27/2011 08:34:00 PM 0 comments
Whenever I blog, I almost always just talk about whatever pops in my mind while I'm typing away on the keyboard. Does that sound weird? I don't know how other bloggers do it, but that's the way I've been blogging for the past year or so.

Before, I used to have a clear outline of what I'm going to be writing about for a particular day. Now, though, I just talk about whatever I could think about. That doesn't mean that I don't take writing seriously. I still put a lot  of effort in blogging. It's just that my entries now are more spontaneous. I'm not sure if you can consider that a good or a bad thing.

However way you see it, I'm still happy with the way I blog. It may not be perfect, but I know that I really talk about what my true thoughts about certain topics.

Need new clothes

Posted by austenfan at 9/24/2011 12:56:00 PM 0 comments
I realized that it's been ages since the last time I bought a new pair of pants or even a shirt. Why? I guess I've just been too lazy to go to the mall during weekends to look for some new clothes. Plus, I've been saving up and as much as possible, I'm trying to lessen my unnecessary expenses. That means, if I still have clothes that work for me, then why bother buying new ones?

However, if I find something that really catches my eye, I'd definitely be willing to make it an exception to my anti-shopping decree! Hmm, I wonder what type of clothes that would be? Would it be some of these funny t-shirts? Or would it be something stylish and trendy? Either way, they would have to be really worth it to make me part from some hard-earned money. Haha.

Come to think of it, I'm so behind on what's the latest in the fashion world! Not that I used to care a lot about it before, but well, it never hurts to know about these things, right?

Commuting etiquette

Posted by austenfan at 9/21/2011 09:59:00 PM 0 comments
For me, this is something that everyone should know about. Every person who rides the bus, train, and any other form of public transportation should know and respect the rights of those around him or her. Being someone who regularly commutes, I've had a lot of experience with irritating co-passengers that I think I could make a book about them. Haha.

It all comes down to respecting other people's private space. Remember that you all paid the same amount of money to get on that ride. That means you need to give each passenger what is due to them. Don't go spreading your legs wide open and making yourself really comfortable to the point that others will have to suffer. Think about the things others might do that can irritate you and try your best to avoid doing the same.

I'll be talking more about this in some of my other blog entries so you better wait for those!

Lots of fun with tomato battles!

Posted by austenfan at 9/20/2011 09:35:00 PM 0 comments

Are you looking for a new kind of fun activity, preferably something you’ve never tried before? Have you ever considered participating in a tomato battle? It definitely sounds fun and from what I’ve heard, it’s a game that’s quickly earning popularity all over the world. If you want to know more about tomato battle, then stick around as I’ll be talking more about this particular activity.

Personally, I’ve never tried being a part of a tomato battle before. I’ve heard stories about it, but I didn’t realize how big an even it actually could be. In my mind, throwing tomatoes was just a game played by a small group of people. For some of you guys, throwing tomatoes can denote dissatisfaction with something that’s being presented – like a play or a concert. Little did I know that people actually play a tomato battle – complete with the mechanics and appropriate venue for the game.

Now, do you want to try your hand at playing tomato battle too? If you’re excited to be a part of this game, then you don’t have to worry as you have a lot of opportunities to do so! There are several tomato battles that will be coming your way, one of which is the Midwest Tomato Fest! Just make sure that you stay tuned and look out for the scheduled date for the event!

If you’re planning to participate in it, then you better start learning more about the how the game is played. Start studying the mechanics and get ready for the battle!

Where are the pictures?

Posted by austenfan at 9/19/2011 10:10:00 PM 0 comments
You may be wondering why my blog entries don't have any pictures attached with them? The simplest reason for that is that I'm too lazy to search for an appropriate image to go along with my blog posts. Haha. Plus, attaching pictures to an entry takes a considerable amount of time and disk space, so most of the time, I don't bother using them.

Still, I can't deny that pictures make blog entries much more interesting. It's true! You'll be more inclined to look at a post with pictures than one that's just all plain text, right? Yeah, I should definitely try to put some images within my posts.

What kind of pictures should I use, though? Can I just use pictures from different sources in the internet and just indicate where I got it? Should I use pictures that I took with a camera? It doesn't really matter, anyway, as long as its relevant to what the blog entry is about. :)

Who's pregnant on Gossip Girl?

Posted by austenfan at 9/18/2011 12:27:00 PM 0 comments
There's only a week more to go before the new season of Gossip Girl starts! Weee! Who isn't as excited as I am? Haha. Anyway, let me warn you that I'm about to talk about last season's finale, so if you haven't seen it yet and you want to avoid any type of spoiler, then you know what to do. :)

So, who do you think is pregnant? Obviously, the writers want the viewers to think it's Blair, if only to create more conflict in her messy love life. (Isn't it convoluted enough as it is?) However, if they really want to surprise the viewers, I think they'd go for another character - someone that would be really impossible to think of as pregnant. Any guesses? Anyway, whoever this character is, will we see her shopping for cheap maternity dresses or expensive ones? Is it someone from the Upper East Side or not?

Your guess is as good as mine. :) I guess we'll all know the answer to that after seeing the season's first episode!

Busy times

Posted by austenfan at 9/15/2011 10:01:00 PM 0 comments
Hi everyone! I haven't been blogging all that much lately due to my busy schedule. It's hard to find the energy and creative juices to blog sometimes, especially when you come home tired from work. Yeah, it's hard, but still, I'll try my best to keep on posting fresh content on this blog!

In the meantime, I need to have a blogging schedule - one that would take into account my working hours and other activities. Speaking of other activities, that reminds me, I've yet to organize the set of pictures we took on our Manila Ocean Park trip. They weren't taken with olympus digital cameras and the picture quality isn't as good as that of an SLR's, but they're still pretty fun to look at! Come to think of it, I should have them printed too!

So, any suggestions for my blogging schedule? Do you think I should post new entries at least three times a week? :)

Gossip Girl spoilers?

Posted by austenfan at 9/14/2011 10:01:00 PM 0 comments
Who's excited for the new season of Gossip Girl? I know I am! I guess I should rephrase that question to "Who isn't excited?" Haha. Yeah, yeah, I know, not all the people I know watches Gossip Girl, but just let me enjoy this moment of giddiness for the upcoming season, okay?

So, there are a lot of spoilers on the net already, and although I'm excited to know more about what happens next, there's still a part of me that doesn't want to read too much of them. Why? I want to be surprised with what the writers have cooked up for the fans!

And what about Blair Waldorf's very confusing love life? Well... I'm on Team Dan right now, but that might still change once the show airs. :)

It's the start of the -ber months! The Christmas season is here!

Posted by austenfan at 9/04/2011 04:37:00 PM 0 comments
So, Christmas is fast approaching! And although I'm excited about it because it's such a festive season, there's still that part of me that worries over the upcoming expenses that my wallet's going to have to face. Yeah, it's true that we really don't have to spend that much on Christmas since that's not the purpose of the occasion. However, gift giving has become such a tradition already that you just can't easily stop doing it too.

I guess now's the time to start saving up for the holidays to come. Now, if you have a special someone to spend Christmas with, then I suggest you better start thinking of ideas for your christmas gifts for him 2011. Make sure to make him feel appreciated and loved by looking for something unique and special to give to him as a gift! That's just the romantic in me talking, so forgive me if I'm starting to sound too cheesy. Haha.

Anyway, happy gift hunting!

Loving the new blogging interface!

Hi there, fellow bloggers! Have you seen the new blogging interface? I love how it shows the pageviews, traffic sources, and other information that you'd like to know about your blog.

The improvements are really handy, especially if you're into increasing your blog traffic and statistics. And even if you aren't, well, I'm sure you'll agree that the new layout looks much, much better - definitely more modern and stylish!

Still, there's still so much room for improvement. I wonder if the admin have some sort of suggestion box where bloggers can file all their recommendations to improve their blogging experience?
