Music game console

Posted by austenfan at 10/22/2014 10:38:00 PM 0 comments
I've been watching too much of The Big Bang Theory that I'm beginning to think of buying an Xbox or a Wii or whatever it is that they're playing on the show. Do they have games where you can learn to play music? Can you even simulate using boutique guitar pedals using game consoles?

Anyway, why don't I just play with the real thing?

I really want to buy a game console, though, if it's within my budget. :)

Getting tired of social networking

Posted by austenfan at 10/22/2014 10:30:00 PM 0 comments
I am.. just a little bit, though. Maybe it's a that time of the month kind of thing, though. I don't know. Maybe I'm just not seeing what I want to be seeing. Haha. I'm getting all cryptic here, but I can't really go around telling secrets on my blog, ya know?

It's now how it used to be.

Then again, maybe I'm just tired and in need of some sleep.

The Voice again!

Posted by austenfan at 10/21/2014 09:47:00 PM 0 comments
The Voice is back! And it's turning out to be the best season yet! At least, among those that I've seen. Haha. I wonder, though, if the clothes and guitars used by the contestants there are provided by the studio. They probably have the budget for it. I love how good the audio sounds in every performance. Do you think they use mixcraft for the record the studio versions of the songs performed by each contestant?

Sleep deprived

Sleep deprived. Yes, that's how I usually am during weekdays. It's not like I don't have a choice, though. That's the problem. I can sleep early if I want to, but as the night goes on, I find myself doing things that aren't really on my planned things to do. Then what happens? I end up having a sleep time of about 5 hours. Frustrating, right?

I need to find a way to break this staying up late streak!

Study, study, study!

Posted by austenfan at 9/06/2014 09:43:00 AM 0 comments
I'm trying to learn more about photography. When I say learn, I mean starting from the basics. I don't know how to take a picture unless I'm in AUTO mode. Haha.

Do you know of a good website that teaches beginners like me? Preferably, it should be easy to understand yet comprehensive. I've already seen some good sites when I tried to search before, but if you have any other recommendations, that would be great!

I hope I don't get too lazy to study. Let this be a new, good hobby! I'm excited!

Haircut problems?

Posted by austenfan at 9/06/2014 09:22:00 AM 0 comments
What do you usually do when you want to get a haircut? Do you already have that perfect cut envisioned even before you go to the salon? Or do you look at the magazines there and try to pick one that you think would look good on you? Or you could just ask them what would be the best cut for you.

When I get a cut, I keep it pretty simple, I tell them the length I want them to cut and if I want layers or not. Haha. That's the only type of cut I get every single time!

Taking up new hobbies

Posted by austenfan at 8/10/2014 10:04:00 AM 0 comments
I'm not the sort of person who has hobbies. By that, I mean serious hobbies like running, mountain climbing, or cooking. I prefer doing light activities that helps me relax and release some stress.

I've read somewhere, though, that it's a good thing to take up a new hobby. It's a good way to introduce some much needed change to your daily routine. What kind of hobbies are there that are not that physically draining, anyway? Well.. you can start learning to play guitar, if you don't already know how. Go ahead and by a new guitar at musicians friends. It's not that expensive and with some practice, you'll be able to play music in no time. It's perfect for all you music lovers!

Cold problems

Posted by austenfan at 7/11/2014 08:42:00 PM 0 comments
I really don't like catching a cold. It makes me feel tired, sleepy, and lazy all at the same time. It makes me just want to curl up in bed all day. And it makes me spend a lot of time searching the internet for the most effective treatment for cold. They all pretty much say the same thing, though. There's no medicine for it. Let your body fight the virus and heal on its own. Rest. Drink plenty of fluids.

Alright, then. I'm gonna take that advice.

Must organize!

Posted by austenfan at 5/22/2014 09:56:00 PM 0 comments
I must confess that my stuff have been a big, big mess lately. I seriously need to clean up soon. Hmm, how to start cleaning, then? Do I start with my clothes? It's all such a mess that I probably need new cabinet organizers! I don't even know where I can get one of those. Haha.

Alright, this weekend, I really should start cleaning up. Yep, I've said it before... I'm as undomestic as any girl could get. Don't judge me, okay? It's hard to keep things neat all the time!

Healthy diet, please.

Posted by austenfan at 5/22/2014 07:50:00 PM 0 comments
It's really hard to keep a healthy diet daily. It's a little time consuming and expensive, right? When you can just go to the nearest convenience store to buy food, why would you opt to buy fruits and vegetables from the market and think of something to do with them? Haha, says the lazy little me. Haha.

But if I need and want to be healthy, I should really make an effort to have a healthier diet too. Gotta make it a commitment!

It's spring time! Hopefully, the temperature soon goes up. This cold weather makes me want to just stay all day inside my room. Haha.

Anyway, what are your plans for this season? Visit the parks that are sure to be filled with beautiful scenery and flowers? Go shopping and browse through the gorgeous selection of spring wear? Sounds good! I'm psyching myself up! :) Yes, spring really is one of my favorite seasons!

Have fun shopping and taking trips!

Connection problems

What should you do when you have really slow internet connection? Although I'm internet savvy and know how to find solutions for simple things tech-related, I can't seem to figure out how to make fix my internet connection problem.

I've tried a lot. I've unplugged and re-plugged the modem several times. I deleted all files from my browser which could be slowing down my connection. I even disabled the firewall! All the others who share the same connection as me don't seem to have any problem. Any more tips on how to speed up my connection?

Looking for a business?

Posted by austenfan at 3/16/2014 09:14:00 PM 0 comments
If you're thinking of starting your own business, you need to make sure that it is in line with what you really want to do. For example, if you like performing, then why not think of setting up your own music studio? You can furnish it and buy all the musical instruments that you need. It's not hard to do that these days. You can easily buy a yamaha emx212s from guitar center. I'm not sure, but I think they can even have it delivered to wherever you want.

After deciding on the type of business you want, the rest will flow much more smoothly, as long as you stay focused on what you want.

What do you think of the latest (as of my knowledge, it is the latest) song from John Legend? As for me, I think it's one of the best love songs I've ever heard! And the way John Legend sings it... it just feels so emotional and passionate. I can't help but turn mushy whenever I hear it.

Bruno Mars, I'm waiting for your next love song... :)

Some people...

Posted by austenfan at 3/16/2014 08:56:00 PM 0 comments
Some people are just musically gifted. Don't you agree? I know several people who seem to be gifted when it comes to music - be it singing, playing the guitar, or the piano. If given the chance, I think that person can even buy hohner harmonica online from guitar center and learn how to play it without any knowledge beforehand. Are you one of those people?

It makes me wonder if hard work can beat innate talent. Is the drive to learn enough to make a person better than someone who's just naturally good at it? Of course, most of us would like to think so. Anyway, I haven't made any real effort to learn how to play a musical instrument so I can't really defend that theory. Haha.

DSLR: Do you need it?

Posted by austenfan at 3/16/2014 08:51:00 PM 0 comments
What makes a DSLR so great? Is it the high megapixel images that it can produce? Or does it have something to do with the lens? I'm wondering because if I can, I want to be able to take good pictures too. For a beginner like me, would buying a DSLR be a good move? Or should I just try first to practice with my point-and-shoot camera?

I heard that even if you're just starting to learn photography, having a DSLR can help give you professional-quality photos. Is this true (for those of you with little experience in photography who owns a DSLR camera)?

House plans?

Posted by austenfan at 3/12/2014 11:37:00 PM 0 comments
Have you started planning about your dream house yet? I haven't, but that doesn't mean that I haven't thought about it. Yes, I do have some designs (as seen from magazines) that I like, but I don't have any specific plan on how it's going to look like yet. How about you? Have you started planning on your dream house?

If you want, you can look at sombal harbour homes for sale here. Try to look at some house designs online.You might get new ideas there. It doesn't have to be exactly the same. You can mix and match whatever designs you might find online!

Caffeine (slightly) overload

Posted by austenfan at 3/12/2014 11:29:00 PM 0 comments
Can you even say slightly overload? There's nothing slight about the overload, right? Haha. Anyway, I've been staying away from coffee because it keeps me up at night, but I didn't count on milk tea having the same effect. I guess I should have, seeing as tea also contains caffeine. I hope it doesn't contain as much caffeine as the coffee, though.

I don't even know what's keeping me up - the caffeine or overthinking things. Maybe I should just try to relax first and stop stressing about things.

Unique band ideas

Posted by austenfan at 3/02/2014 09:58:00 PM 0 comments
There are so many bands/groups today that I can't even remember most of their names even though I listen to their songs. It would be nice if they can think of something that would set them apart from the others. That's why when some unique group pops up on Youtube, like someone that uses finger cymbals from musicians friend, they become a hit. It's always better to have an original concept. That way, you'd stand out and not be simply one of them.

Then again, what do I know? I'm not a big music industry expert, anyway.

The Voice is back!

Posted by austenfan at 3/02/2014 09:50:00 PM 0 comments
I've seen some clips from Youtube, and it looks like the show's got another bunch of talented contestants. I don't know yet if they're better than last season's, but they sure look promising. Truthfully, I felt a little disappointed that Christina Aguilera is not going to be one of the judges this season, but Shakira is just so darn cute and funny that I'm beginning to like her presence in the show!

What about you? Do you already have your favorite among the contestants?

Anyone who knows me well would know that I have this sort of phobia when it comes to dogs and cats... and basically, anything that bites. I don't know why. I find puppies cute, too, but when it comes to them getting near me, I get apprehensive and I just can't stay still. It's probably because I've never had my own pet before. I might have to get myself a pet just to get rid of this (sort of) phobia.

Anyway, have you heard of sport dogs? Well, if like me, you haven't, then you can click here for information on sport dogs. Once you've finished reading up on it, maybe you can make a blog entry about it and share the information too? Then, send me the link and I'll look it up!

Getting on the diet

Posted by austenfan at 2/17/2014 09:21:00 PM 0 comments
For the past year, I've been telling myself over and over again that I should start getting on a diet. Sadly, I've yet to start taking it seriously. I always find myself making excuses and putting off my diet plan for another day. Yeah, that didn't really get me anywhere.

So, hopefully, this time, I'll start making healthier choices when it comes to what I eat. I'm not making any promises, but I really, really want (and need) to do this. And if I'm gonna do it, I need all the motivation (even if it is self-motivation) that I can get!

iTunes clean-up mode

Posted by austenfan at 1/26/2014 10:26:00 PM 0 comments
I've been doing some cleaning in my iTunes library this past weeks - deleting the songs I don't listen to anymore and adding new songs to the list. If it's going to be in my iPod, it has to be something that I like listening to a lot, right?

I don't have a criteria or some sort of standard for the songs that I listen to. When I hear it, I just know that I like it. At times, I don't like it right away. It can take up to three to four times before a song grows on me. I'm not particular about the instruments used too. The band can use an olympus portable ls 10 at guitar center and that won't even change my opinion about the song. When the song gives me what I want or like, then I'll take it. Haha.

Video clip maker?

Posted by austenfan at 1/26/2014 08:10:00 PM 0 comments
Anyone here ever tried making a video clip before? What software did you use? Being a beginner, I think I'll just go with Windows Movie Maker, but, if ever you know of another movie editing software that's easy to learn how to use, please tell me! It's my first attempt at making a video clip, so I'm a bit excited and apprehensive about it.

And I still need to look for a song to use!

Time for some adventure?

Posted by austenfan at 1/13/2014 05:42:00 PM 0 comments
Everyone who knows me knows that I'm, like, the opposite of sporty, if there's such a term for that. Trekking, camping... these things aren't really for me. I don't know why. Hmm, actually I have a lot of reasons... I'm just not sure if they're legit ones or just excuses. I'm not sure if I really don't like doing them or I'm just scared of trying them. Then again, people change. The things I hated yesterday could be something fun for me after several months or so. I remember not liking the taste of white chocolate before. But now? I love it! I still prefer milk chocolate, though. :)

Interests change, I guess. Maybe one day, I'll suddenly buy Reid industrial supplies and try if I'm any good at less-than-girly activities. Yes, maybe it's time for a change. To try things I didn't consider before. As for when I'll be doing it, that's still something I've yet to decide on.

Managing your finances

Posted by austenfan at 1/13/2014 03:56:00 PM 0 comments
I don't consider myself as a shopaholic. Sometimes, I do give in to a little impulse buying, but that's about it. You'd think if I had that much discipline, I would be good in managing my finances. Unfortunately... not. I won't say I'm bad at it, but I haven't really saved up as much as I want to. I'm thinking it has more to do with my not having a definite plan. I should probably make some sort of outline for my plans for my finances.

The problem is, I don't know how. Haha. What should I include there? I know the basics - how much to save, target savings by the end of the month/year.. I don't what else I need to put there, though. Any ideas?
