Credit cards are a must?

Posted by austenfan at 8/21/2012 08:47:00 PM 0 comments
Before, I never imagined myself getting a credit card. If you've read Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, then you probably know my reasons for not wanting to get a card. Haha. But now, I'm beginning to change my mind. I must admit that using credit cards does have some advantages.

You won't need to have cash with you all the time. You can use your credit card whenever you need to make a new purchase. Then, there are the gadget installment promos. You can buy a laptop, then just pay it in an installment basis. Pretty neat, right?

I don't know much about how to choose the best credit card, though. You could try reading about spendsmart mastercard or some other type of credit card in the internet. However, be sure to take in consideration your needs and lifestyle when choosing a card. That way, you'll maximize your use of your chosen card!

The Facebook Timeline

What's up with everybody complaining about the Facebook timeline? Sorry, but I just don't get it. Your profiles have been switched to the timeline mode. So?

I don't mean to sound rude or argumentative, but I just fail to see what's so wrong with the new Facebook timeline that I even read from some of my friends' wall posts that they'll stop using Facebook because of it.

If you're one of those against the timeline, care to share what you hate about it? Honestly, I'm curious. :)

Love concerts?

Posted by austenfan at 8/11/2012 11:29:00 PM 0 comments
If you have, then you probably know all about the instruments and equipment needed whenever bands are on gigs/concerts. As for me, since I don't usually attend concerts/live performances, I don't know anything about  these things. I've never even seen a fishman loudbox mini before. I only know that it's used as an amplifier.

The one and only concert I've been to is Maroon 5's last year. And I wouldn't have gone to that one if I'm not obsessed about Adam Levine. Haha.

Have you gone to a lot of concerts before? Which one's your favorite?

Weekend, finally!

It feels like I've been waiting for the weekend for a very, very long time. There's just something about rainy days which gets me down, I guess.

Then again, maybe it's because I can only watch my beloved Korean dramas and anime series at home (since I don't have a laptop at the boarding house). :)

Anyway, there's a relatively new Prince of Tennis series (released earlier this year), which, by the way, is entitled "New Prince of Tennis". Yeah. Go figure. Haha.

Happy weekend, everyone!

Maroon 5 in Manila on September!

Posted by austenfan at 8/06/2012 12:42:00 AM 0 comments
I was able to watch their concert last year. Too bad I won't be able to go this year. Why? I don't have the money for the ticket and even if I did have it, I heard that the tickets (with the good seats) are all sold out. I guess I'll just catch them when they come back here again (hopefully).

I just realized that I don't know much about the band even though I know most of their songs. For example, I don't know the kind of guitar they use. Is it a squier vintage modified telecaster sh? I just know that their music sounds good. :)

How about you? Do you know a lot about your favorite group/band?

Who's on Twitter?

Posted by austenfan at 8/06/2012 12:36:00 AM 0 comments
Most of my close friends aren't. I wonder why. Twitter seems to be more of a celebrity thing than something ordinary people (like me) would spend time on. I think it's a pretty cool site, but I just don't find myself inclined to post updates there often.

I should probably keep my profile private so I'd only read tweets of my close acquaintances and have my tweets be read only by people I actually know. But as I said before, most of my close friends aren't on Twitter so what's the point?

Twitter just doesn't do it for me (as of the moment). Maybe if I get a tweet from Adam Levine, I'll be more active in it. Haha.

TV problems

Posted by austenfan at 8/06/2012 12:17:00 AM 0 comments
I really want to replace the TV I have in my room with a new one. The screen's so small that I can't read the subtitles whenever I watch Korean dramas. Plus, the picture quality of the shows aren't good, either. Hmm, I should probably blame our cable provider for that. Haha.

Anyway, when I get to save up and manage to have some spare cash, I want to buy a new TV for my room. I wonder how much it would cost. Do I need to buy a mounting bracket for tv too? I guess that depends on the available space in my room. I'd better do some cleaning up first and check where I can place it.

Then again, it's not that urgent. I'll probably buy a new tv months (or maybe years) from now. The one I have now still works fine. :)

Must save up!

If I want to be able to buy a new laptop soon (and I really want to), then I need to start getting serious on managing my finances properly. I have to stop spending my money on things that I don't need (much).

Hmm, how do I go about doing this, anyway? Some of the ways I know of are to:

  1. Stop dining out. Well, not really stop, but to eat in cheaper places. :)
  2. Temporarily stay away from cinemas. Movie tickets are just too pricey right now. And let's not talk about the popcorn and drinks!
  3. Make a list of the things I spend my money on. I used to do this before, but laziness stepped in. Haha. I guess I need to start doing it again.
Fighting! :)

Celebrity houses

Posted by austenfan at 8/05/2012 11:39:00 PM 0 comments
Have you ever seen an episode of MTV Cribs or any one of those shows which features the homes of popular celebrities? Aren't you just amazed at how fabulous their houses are? Seriously, if I have a house like one of those, I'd probably stay at home most of the time. Haha.

Even their bathrooms are so spacious - maybe even double the size of my bedroom. Some of the houses even have a vintage bath tub, which totally complements the style of their bathrooms.

This is why I always enjoy reading magazines that cover these celebrity houses. Yes, it makes me envious, but that's only normal, I guess. :)

Have you seen pictures of celebrity houses? Which one's your favorite?

KDrama bug

Posted by austenfan at 8/05/2012 10:33:00 PM 0 comments
Yes, I've caught the KDrama bug again. I find myself watching episode upon episode of this Korean series, without any regard to the time, even if it's way past midnight. This is what I hate when watching these Korean dramas. You won't be able to help yourself from watching it until you finish it.

But then again, that probably goes for all the other series that I watch, not just for KDramas particularly. Haha. The problem lies with me and how I easily get affected by the shows that I watch.

I'm off to find more KDramas to get addicted to, then. I know, I know. I should stop. I will... after another episode or so. :)
