Play musical instruments?

Posted by austenfan at 2/26/2012 11:14:00 PM 0 comments
Do you play any type of musical instrument? I've tried playing different types of instruments, but I can't say that I'm good at any of them. Maybe I'm just not musically inclined enough. Then again, maybe I was just too lazy to practice playing them.

How about you? Are you good at playing the electric upright bass or the piano? What type of instruments do you enjoy playing the most? If you know how to play an instrument, then cultivate that talent and try to be better at it. Who knows? You might end up being the next big thing in the music scene!

Now, wouldn't that just be awesome? :)

Romantic comedy movies make me happy!

Posted by austenfan at 2/26/2012 11:09:00 PM 0 comments
What is it with romantic comedy movies that leave me feeling giddy and hopeful? Honestly, the male protagonists are always these seemingly perfect creatures - wildly romantic and impossibly gorgeous. Why do they need to do that? Don't they know that by producing these types of films, the girls only end up with higher expectations when it comes to love? Haha.

Anyway, here I am again, complaining even though I know that I'll watch the movie again (if someone gives me a free ticket)!

Have extra money?

Posted by austenfan at 2/23/2012 11:44:00 PM 0 comments
When you have extra money, what do you do with it? Do you just save it in the bank or do you invest in somewhere? From what I've heard, it would be best if you can invest it by putting up a business, preferably something that you're interested and passionate about. If you like baking, then why not put your own bakeshop? :)

You can also invest it in a lot of other ways. You can buy gold online and then later on sell it for a much higher price. Investing in stocks can also be quite profitable. Many of my friends are doing it now and I think they're actually earning a lot from it.

There are still a lot of other things you can do to make your extra money be productive. However, I suggest you do your research first before deciding on which investment to take on.

Microblogging, your thoughts on it?

Posted by austenfan at 2/19/2012 12:38:00 PM 0 comments
Microblogging is quickly gaining popularity these days. Sometimes, people just want to write short but meaningful thoughts and have the whole world wide web read them. I know I've felt that way before. You'll not always be in the mood to talk about something fully - with the details and all that. Is this a sign that people are becoming lazy, even when it comes to blogging? Or should we accept microblogging as what it claims to be - a useful way to make your thoughts be heard (without them having to be long to be considered great)?

The only microblogging platform I use is Twitter, and I'm not even an active tweet-er. Haha. But I'm thinking of collecting all those one-liner thoughts that sometimes just randomly pop into my head. Maybe I could write them down on my journal or save them on my phone whenever I get an attack of these thoughts. Haha.

Hmm, this is getting me excited already. I can't wait to read all those thoughts after I'm done compiling them! :)

Looking for a getaway?

I love hearing other people's travel stories. Why? It's because I haven't been a grand vacation myself. That's why whenever I see the travel pictures that everyone posts on Facebook, I get really wistful and jealous. I start imagining how nice it would be to go on a trip to somewhere special too!

How do you start planning for a trip, anyway? How are you supposed to know which places to visit? I don't even know how to book a flight! Yep, that's how clueless I am about traveling. Fortunately, there are a lot of travel review sites out there which can help me decide on what kind of trip I'd enjoy. If you want to get the best UK travel agents to help you in planning for your trip, then you don'to need to fret! It's easy - there are a lot of travel reviews available out there. Read them and they'll definitely help you plan you trip!

As for myself, I would love to go on a trip to Paris - especially now, after just reading this amazing book that's set in France! I can imagine the scenery already - the Eiffel Tower, the grand chapels, the scrumptious food and coffee! Hmm, wonder when I'll get to take a trip there? But first things first, I need to save up for that!

How about you? Where would you like to travel to?

I need a memory booster.

Posted by austenfan at 2/12/2012 09:37:00 PM 0 comments
I know that as we age, our memory tends to grow less and less... stellar. Hmm, it's something that I'm sure everyone hopes could be avoided, right? How do you go about doing that? Does taking food that's supposed to make you "smart" like nuts really help? :)

In any case, this memory foam mattress might be of some help. I haven't tried using one before, but getting a relaxing nap or sleep is sure to do wonders for your health, right? So, if you're looking for something to help boost your memory, then why don't you try this?

Do you have any other tips when it comes to boosting your memory? Share them in the comments section!

I am a techie... not.

I used to think that I was pretty knowledgeable about things that are tech-related. But now, I'm not so sure anymore. Ever since the advent of android phones, I've become more and more clueless about how these different apps work. Heck, this is the first time I've ever used foursquare!

Yeah, yeah. That's how un-techie I've become. Haha.

I'm slowly starting to learn all these new things, though. So, here's to hoping that I'll be able to catch up! :)

Book bargains!

Posted by austenfan at 2/05/2012 09:07:00 PM 0 comments
While mindlessly roaming around the mall yesterday, I decided to visit the bookstores and check if there are any new good titles. And was I glad I did! At the center of the store are hardcover books all discounted to almost a fifth of their original price! They were selling it for less than a hundred bucks - super huge discount, right? Of course, the books aren't in their best condition, but still, those were hardcover books! Haha.

Sorry, but I just get really excited when the words "books" and "discount" come together in a single sentence. If someone gives me barnes & noble coupons, then that would make me really happy! But if you'd just go ahead and buy me books for free, then that would make me even more happier. :)

I've yet to see if the books I bought would live up to my expectations. I'll just post reviews (if I have the time)!

When emotions take over

Posted by austenfan at 2/05/2012 08:53:00 PM 0 comments
It's hard to get too attached to something... or someone. I'm sure you all know why. Getting too attached will only bring forth feelings of disappointment and hurt, especially when those feelings aren't reciprocated. Wah, I should stop myself now before I start getting too mushy and this post ends up with bitter ramblings of a (sort of) heartbroken girl.

A very important lesson learned for me: Don't take things TOO seriously. Just enjoy these moments. Don't overanalyze it and never make too much out of it. You'll risk ending up confused and hurt.

This is just me, babbling randomly. Haha.

Coffee flavors

Posted by austenfan at 2/01/2012 12:38:00 AM 0 comments
I'm not a big fan of coffee, although I do enjoy drinking it from time to time. I've tried taking in too much caffeine before, and well, it wasn't really good for my health (my nerves, more especially).

What type of coffee flavors do you enjoy most? Do you like it brewed or sweetened with syrup with a dash of whipped cream? Have you tried drinking different cappuccino mixes? Did you enjoy it? :)

Despite not being a regular coffee drinker, I won't deny that I love smelling newly prepared coffee and taking sips of the different varieties of coffee drinks present in most coffee shops today. Actually, I'd probably spend a lot of time at coffee shops just for that wonderful smell (if only their products weren't so expensive)!
