Looking for Christmas gifts?

Posted by austenfan at 10/31/2011 09:18:00 PM 0 comments
The season for gift-giving is just a month away! Have you thought of what you want to give as presents to your family and friends yet? If you haven't, well, you're not alone! I'm still thinking of ideas for my Christmas presents. However, I would really like to give gifts that are personal and useful.

If you'd like to give something personalized to your friends, why not have a special coin made for them? You can give them military coins or music-inspired coins, depending on what your friends' interests are! Sounds cool, huh? I'm not sure how much these things cost, but I think the price would be worth it. After all, the coins are pretty unique!

Any other ideas for your Christmas gifts? Share them, please!

Accidentally deleted my blogroll!

Posted by austenfan at 10/23/2011 01:16:00 PM 0 comments
Uh, what just happened?

It seems like I've just deleted my blogroll. And I honestly don't know how it happened.

If you were in my blogroll before, just leave a comment here and I'll add you right back!

How my blog looked like before

Posted by austenfan at 10/23/2011 01:12:00 PM 0 comments
I decided to look up my blog statistics in Alexa earlier. While I was browsing through the site, I saw one of their features wherein you can see how your blog looked like in the past. I saw this blog's template two years ago and realized that I really missed how it used to look back then. If you haven't seen it before, here's how it looked:


Isn't it cute?

So, I tried to revert to the same layout earlier. However, if I do that, I would have to re-install all my widgets here and that would just take too much time and effort. I'll have to postpone changing my layout till I have enough free time, I guess.

By the way, this Alexa tool is called the Wayback Machine. Try it too if you're feeling nostalgic and want to bring back old blog memories!

Secure your personal belongings.

Posted by austenfan at 10/18/2011 06:56:00 PM 0 comments
With the innovations in today's technology comes the added threat to the security of our personal assets. That's why you need to make sure that your personal belongings like credit cards are well-protected. After all, you definitely wouldn't want to compromise your finances, right?

For your security, you can use the rfid blocking wallet. It's a wallet that protects your financial and personal information from being stolen (without it actually being physically taken). If I were to get a credit card, I would consider buying this wallet too!

So if you own a lot of credit cards, why don't you take a look at some information on this wallet? I don't know how much it costs, but if it will give you financial security, then the price might be worth it. Try and research on it and see for yourselves!

The Three Musketeers movie!

Posted by austenfan at 10/18/2011 06:39:00 PM 0 comments
I'm super excited for the film adapatation of Dumas' novel The Three Musketeers! Although the details are a bit hazy to me now, I still remember having enjoyed reading it. Hmm, I guess I would have to re-read some parts of it again so that I can appreciate watching the movie.

For fans of Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean out there, Orlando Bloom is included in the cast for The Three Musketeers so maybe you'd want to see this too! I hope they do a good adaptation of this book. Since the book is very long, I don't expect them to show every scene that happened in the novel, but I hope they don't leave out any important parts. :)

Anyway, have you heard if there's also going to be a movie adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo? Has it already been made into a movie before?

Still have a lot to do

Posted by austenfan at 10/16/2011 07:50:00 PM 0 comments
The weekend's ending, but I still have lots of tasks to finish before the workweek starts. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Anyway, there's nothing I can do about that now, except to try to get all my tasks done. Here are some of the things I need to do:

  1. Update my other blogs. Maintaining several blogs can be quite difficult, especially when it comes to posting new entries in them.
  2. Make a list for my Christmas gifts shopping. I know it's still months away and I don't even have shopping money for it yet, but it's better to prepared, right? I don't know what my friends and family would like? Would my girl pals like some feminine stuff? Or will they appreciate my giving them something different for a change, like special-flavored cigars? Hmm, I might have to look at some cigar brands to figure out which one they'd care to have.
  3. Study! I still need to learn a lot so browsing some of my college textbooks would be a great help!
I need to get on with this list. Hopefully, I can finish all of them in just a couple (or less) of hours!

Have you seen New Girl?

Posted by austenfan at 10/15/2011 10:18:00 PM 0 comments
I've only seen three episodes but I can say that it's already turning out to be an awesome new show! I don't know if that's just because I find Zooey Deschanel really adorable or if it's because of the show's characters and their witty lines. Maybe it's a combination of both.

If you're looking for a new TV show to watch, why don't you try New Girl? If you're in the mood for some good laughs, then this show will definitely not disappoint. Speaking of funny shows, have you heard that the new season of Chuck will be airing in just a few weeks. From what I've read, I think the first episode will be shown by the end of October (I'm not sure about the exact date). I'm sure every fan of the show is excited to see Chuck, Sarah, Casey, and the rest of the gang again!

Anyway, try seeing the pilot of New Girl and tell me if you liked it too!

I want a new phone!

Posted by austenfan at 10/13/2011 11:18:00 PM 0 comments
Yes, I do want to get a new phone. However, wanting is totally different from needing something and since I'm trying to save money, I guess I'll just stay with my current mobile phone. After all, I can always buy new batteries for cell phones when my phone's power supply starts getting drained quickly. That's much a much cheaper option than buying a new phone, right?

I would probably just buy a new phone when I've saved enough cash or when my phone starts getting worse to the point that I can use it conveniently anymore. A phone's purpose is to get you easier to be reached by your contacts so there's not much point in having one if it frequently loses power, anyway. Still, I don't plan on buying a new phone right now so I need to take better care with what I have right now. :)

By the way, what model would you recommend to me if I were to buy a new mobile phone?

Want to see Adam Levine on a billboard!

Posted by austenfan at 10/09/2011 05:32:00 PM 0 comments
Bench, Penshoppe, and other clothing stores out there, won't you please get the amazing and extremely gorgeous Adam Levine as one of your endorsers? I'm sure a lot of us would love to see him grace one of the many billboards along the highway! Yep, I'm sure all the girls (and some of the boys) would love that. Haha.

And while you're at it, you can give away freebies - like free photos, shirts, and all Adam Levine-related things! Sorry, I'm getting all excited being a fangirl here. :) But seriously, I think it would do a lot for their sales if Adam Levine starts promoting their products. I know I'm going to frequent the nearest clothing shop to me just to see a poster of him.

Come on, fellow Adam Levine fans! Don't you wanna see him on a billboard too?

Blog Feature

Posted by austenfan at 10/06/2011 10:26:00 PM 0 comments
I'm planning to do some kind of blog feature here wherein I'll be talking about my favorite blogs and bloggers. You know, those blogs that I frequently visit for their unique and interesting content. It's also my way of showing support for my favorite bloggers, who makes me even more inspired to improve my writing (and blogging) skills. You really have to admire those bloggers who manages to capture their audience with their every blog entry.

I'm not sure when I'll be doing this, though. I need to make a list of those blogs first! Of course, I already have my favorites, but I need to add more to that. Maybe you could do the same too? Make a list of your favorite blogs and I'll try to visit them too! This is a great way to develop your blog network and make new blogger friends!

Layout update?

Posted by austenfan at 10/02/2011 07:43:00 PM 0 comments
What do you think of the black, white, and pink-colored layout? I'm still loving it, but whenever I see the more feminine-looking templates of the other blogs out there, I find myself wanting to change mine into a more girly one too! Still, this blog's current template is pretty cute too so I might decide to keep it.

Another reason why I'm hesitating whether I should change my layout or not is my anxiety for the possible (?) disappearance of my widgets. I'm not that savvy when it comes to designing and tweaking templates so I guess I'm going to have to do more research on that before I change my layout. I've heard that there's a new way for a blog template to be changed without deleting the widgets, but I'm not sure how to do it.

Anyway, you'll know when I decide to change my layout! Don't forget to tell me your thoughts about it!

Party planning

Posted by austenfan at 10/01/2011 01:13:00 PM 0 comments
Never before in my life have I organized a party. A simple get-together is an easy task, but a party? I actually have little idea about the things that need to be done when planning it.

The only thing that I know is that the organizers should first decide on a concept. What do you want the party to be about? Is it a fairy-tale inspired birthday party? Or are you intent on inviting work colleagues for a more formal type of get-together? In that case, maybe you should hold a golf-themed party! I know that there are a lot of Golf Invitations suppliers out there, should you ever have a need for them. Personally, I've never attended a golf-themed party, but it sure sounds posh and classy - definitely something that corporate professionals would like to attend.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm so clueless about these socializing stuff that I need to take some kind of crash course just to know more about it. Haha. Does anybody know if these classes do exist?
