So, You Want to Make Money Online, huh?

Join CashCrate and Geostring! I'll give you some tips on how to earn money online with these sites! :)

So, lets start with CashCrate! (Tips from: http://www.squidoo.com/cashcratetips)

Is CashCrate a scam? Not at all! Will I make lots of cash with CashCrate? Not really, but if you put time and effort in then you can add some $$$'s to your pocket.

Everyone wants to earn some extra cash to help with the bills or fund an expensive hobby or just to help boost the savings, and with so many get rich quick schemes about its hard to discover what is a scam and what is real.
CashCrate will help you get some extra cash but you do have to do some easy work to get it, but I can truly say that it's not a scam. With FREE SIGN UP you can get access to the cashcrate forums and read what others have to say about it there.

CashCrate is a system that makes you money by participating in surveys, trialling products and participating in free trial periods of membership etc.

Put more simply you are basically exchanging your knowledge and time for their cash. When you complete one of these offers, companies pay CashCrate for your participation. They then forward a large percentage (around 75%) of the received earnings to you but before each survey you can see how much its worth.

Want to ask some questions? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions from http://www.cashcrate.com/faq.php

Companies need consumers to try and review products, services, and websites and are willing to pay money to have them do so. Most of the time you're asked to do this without any compensation, what we do is take the money companies give us for your participation, and give you back up to 75% of it! That's free cash for you!

Are there any requirements for participation?

You must be atleast 13 years old. Members from the United States and other English speaking countries will have the most offers available to them, but members from other countries are welcome as well.

How much can I make?

Making money online is easy! How much you can make is dependent on a few things such as what country you're from and how much time you're willing to devote to making money. As it is, most members have the opportunity to make more than a thousand dollars!

When do I get paid?

Users who meet our minimum payout (only $20!) have their payments processed by the 20th of the following month. So, if you earn $250 in June, you'll get paid in mid-July.

How does the referral program work?

The referral program has two levels. You get paid 20% of what your direct referrals make and 10% of what THEIR referrals make. Members can make hundreds a month just by referring other members to our free program!

What's the best way to get started?

After you sign-up, you'll be presented with a short message on how to complete offers and paid surveys along with a "fast-track", which is a list offers which you should complete right away because they are high paying and take little time to complete.

I referred my friend and it didn't give me credit?

The most common problem we encounter is when a group of people such as a dormitory at a university are on a shared IP and all run the same IP address. Since this is our first line of defense to protect against fraudulent referrals, you may just be out of luck. We have other methods to try and detect these types of referrals as well and if we believe a referral is suspect you will not immediately be given credit for it.

Need some help getting referrals? Here are a few ideas that have helped many of our members: (from http://www.cashcrate.com/sigs.php)

  • Forum Signatures - Add a link with a short description of the program to your signature in forums that you actively contribute to. If you are not active at any forums, consider joining some that discuss online money making. CashCrate does not encourage or endorse spamming of any form.
  • Blogging - Create a free blog at Blogger.com and talk about how to make money online with CashCrate. Share tips with the visitors on how to complete offers and tricks for referring other members, be sure to include your referral link in the blogs that you post. Once you are indexed by search engines, you will begin to get traffic from people who are looking for ways to generate cash online.
  • Show Off Checks - When you receive checks, allow them to make you money in more ways than one. Show them to your friends! People who trust in the program and have proof are a lot more likely to complete offers than those who are skeptical of whether or not they will be paid.
  • Hand Out Flyers - Handing out flyers is another great way to gain referrals. You can also pin them up on bulletin boards at public places and any other locations where it is legal.
  • Business Cards - It doesn't take too long to print up some business cards to carry around with you. You can also complete an offer with us called VistaPrint, for a small shipping fee they will send you cards that you can hand out to any prospective referrals.

You can also use the banners below to promote your referral link. (banners on http://www.cashcrate.com/sigs.php)

Just a Fraction of Your Love fills the air...

...and I'll fall in love with you all over again!

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Me, I'm doing fine! Whew! I'm back here being fresh from taking a bath! I had been busy bloghopping a while ago, so yeah, this is the reason for "being out for a while". So, what have I been up to these last few days I haven't blogged about? I'll tell you about it!

You know what? I took this pic yesterday, when I'm waiting for my mother and sister to get ready for shopping! I'm trying to look cute...LOL

Do I look cute or ugly? Well, two people on Facebook liked this photo of mine, and one commented that I looked pretty..haha...I was flattered.. :D I don't know if some people, besides my family, could compliment me like that...hihi..^^

Here's my, somewhat, signature smile...hahaha.. :))

People say I look prettier when I smile with my teeth showing up, so, there! :D

During our shopping, we just actually bought a new pressure cooker and bought some grocery items.

Yesterday, we found this cool site, iicarlyy.blogspot.com, and it is where we could see some iCarly episodes online! Oh, I love it! I never have to worry about missing out watching these on TV, since they're all online! Do some of you watch this too? Maybe some would think this show is a bit childish, but who cares? I love iCarly! hahaha.. ;))

Photo from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICarly

I watched the episodes iTwins, iThink They Kissed, and iFind Lewbert's Last Love!

I'm also needing money so bad! I'm planning to earn money online, and I found this site: http://www.geostring.com/en , thanks to one of my friends on Facebook who linked this site to me. I haven't signed up for it just yet, I need to ask permission from my parents. Yay! If they allow, I can earn my own money already here! And I could spend my time here unworthlessly! :) I'm glad I finally had some interest on making money online! Money is scarce nowadays you know!

Thanks by the way to Ella for tagging me in her post! I appreciated it so much! It's my first time to be tagged, from my 10 months in blogging! Thank you so much! Love lots! Mwah! :)

If you have some posts that need tagging, tag me along if you want! :D

Well, that's it for now! Short post, eh? I may edit this soon! Bye! :)

Nothing on You.. :D

Hey there everyone! How ya'll doin'? Askin' about the title? It's a title of a song I'm currently listening now on YouTube, click here for the vid!

We had our rotating brownout this morning, but it started late. Instead of 8am, the current went out at 9am, one hour later. I woke up earlier than usual again, just minutes before 8am struck on the clock. You know what? I had breakfast 3 times this morning! haha.. :DD I ate a some kind of "chicken spread" at first. I should have already been done taking breakfast, but then my mother cooked my favorite corned beef, and I just couldn't resist eating it! And another, my father bought some liempo and lechon manok. I just love eating these, and without caring about being full from my previous breakfast, I, along with the other members of the family, ate with my father anyway! I ate lunch 3 hours later, eventhough I'm still feeling full from the breakfasts I ate! I'm suffering from toothaches now because of this!

While checking out my Facebook account, I checked some notifications, but I mostly check out the commenting and all. One notification is a comment on my status about telling those who are eligible to vote to vote wisely for the leaders of our country, since it's almost Halalan 2010. A schoolmate of mine said that our country has no hope anymore for our country development. Do you believe this too? Me, I think the Philippines still has hope, they just had to change their attitude for the better! But on the other hand, I also think that there is no more hope since it's already natural for Filipinos to be like that and all, and I think you know what I mean!

By the way, my ninong (Godparent) is a candidate for the elections too, Kagawad of 2nd District! He's Zoilo Antonio Velez. Please vote for him if you can, those from Cagayan de Oro City, or beyond I think!

...and by the way, as I could recall, he's the ninong that gave me a cool Digicam as a gift from my 13th birthday! Or is it from my other ninong?

A time before this day's afternoon, we saw a kitten in our garage! I had taken a picture of it! Here it is!

I kind'a edited it and gave it a copyright, so no one would give credit to themselves for the picture. From now on, I would give my own other pictures like this. :D

We also went to our neighborhood to see the monkey out there! I also took pictures of it!

I really loved to see the monkey! I'm still a bit ignorant about it at first since it's my first time to see one in person!

I'm planning to leave my layout as it is for a while. The layout is still new anyway, it's been there for almost four (4) months now! :D

I got a feeling that the school year opening is fast approaching already! It's on June 7! But I think maybe it would be postponed, it's just too early...haha..xDD

Short post, eh?

Well, that's it for now! Thanks for reading! Bye! :)

Another great Day of Summer 2010 :D

Hello everyone! How are you doing? Yep, it's another day of summer! Imma tell you about this day, and some of my thoughts that came around now!

I woke up this morning earlier than usual, but during that time, I got up long after I woke up since my eyes seem to be hard to open because of the "morning glory". Well, after that we did our usual routine, did some workout, and used the net for an hour, an hour just before the scheduled rotating brownout.

We played badminton and basketball all afternoon, and yeah, it was so tiring! I think I'm almost starting to build up muscles already! We planned to go to Jollibee to buy food but it was postponed tomorrow since we still have some things to buy and it's already a waste of money if we still buy something today with all the shopping we had.

By the way, I changed my mind already. I won't change my current layout anymore, since I'm still not fed up with it anyway. I had just changed the body background settings, as you have noticed, the background doesn't scroll anymore along with the other content. Maybe I should just change the header, don't you think? or I should leave it as it is?

Is it better to change my layout or leave it as it is for a while? I need your respective opinions! :)

You know what, while typing this post, I seem to not concentrate, maybe because of all the tabs that are open here and I kept on randomly checking them! A while ago, I have Formspring tabs, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, and many more! In Facebook, I made some utterly random statuses, like what I'm thinking, some songs I'm singing in my head, and I even greeted some birthday celebrants in advance, like my sister, teacher, and so-called bestfriend, which, their birthdays are still in May, and one fact about me why I did that is because I keep on forgetting things, important and unimportant stuff. That's where the opening of many tabs started, since actually, I planned to update some of my sites.

By the way, I love the srapbooking stuff I had downloaded in ShabbyPrincess.com, which I had used them to make my supposed blog header.

And oh, I kept on forgetting to search about 3rd Year lessons, especially the Noli Me Tangere! I'll try to not forget about it ever again tomorrow once I use the Internet!

Well, that's it for now! Bye! :D

The nth day of Summer... :))

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Me, I'm doing fine. You're asking about the title? I made that the title of my post simply because I couldn't really think of a good title for the post, since most of my posts now this summer are just so random that maybe we couldn't find one specific topic in it...haha.. :)) It's just generally about random stuffs I had discovered, done, and enjoyed about this summer! :D

Have you noticed I had been out for 2 days? It's because while surfing the net, I'm trying to find inspirations for making a new layout for my blog, and until now, I hadn't found a great inspiration yet. I'm still trying to observe some blogs' layouts, and will think of a great layout that would please my eyes and yours. I actually changed my layout a while ago, and then changed it back again to this layout since I thought it would not really please everyone because of the tiny polka-dotted background that could bother our eyes, and since computer resolutions vary, that layout wouldn't appear as is for some computers. I'll just think of a great background and color combination for the layout!

Okay, what happened these last few days?

Last Thursday, we prepared our house for our coming guests, which are my high school teacher and coach of the basketball team, and my schoolmates which are basketball varsity players. I really cleaned our room and house well, in case they would get inside, we needed to tidy up our house a bit! They actually went to our house to solicit some money from my father, and they also played basketball. Want to see some pictures? Here they are:

My comments for the pictures :)

1st Pic: There they are! My teacher/basketball coach and some schoolmates of mine who are basketball varsity players.Tired from the game huh.. :D

2nd Pic: Dribble, dribble like *boink, boink, boink*...haha.. xDD actually, it did not bounce, right?..LOL

3rd Pic: Trying to grab the ball from the opponent who's going to shoot the ball! The guy there who's actually my brother looked like flying and making the sign of peace on the left hand...haha.. :))

4th Pic: Will it shoot? Will it? Will it? hahaha...

Well, yesterday, nothing much happened actually, or maybe I had just forgotten about it. One thing I could recall about yesterday is that I found out that the Globe Immortal text promo came back already, I just didn't know when. I quickly subscribed to it and I was so happy that I could finally text message to the max like I used to do long time ago. I do not use Unlimited texting because it's only valid for one day unlike Immortal that it would not expire, but of course, it will run out.

I would be playing badminton and basketball just for fun this summer, one thing that would make me taller! Good nutrition and right sleep are also some ways!

I'm going to enjoy this summer vacation after all! Some good exercise is one thing that could spice it up!

I'm so excited for my sister's birthday, because we're going to our nearby resort to celebrate! It's so exciting that I kept on telling my mother about it, just like how excited I am for the hair rebond! I'm going to swim on the swimming pool once again, wear some sleeveless shirts, shorts, get wet, and a lot more! By the way, I'm feeling more confident with my body already..LOL, because long ago, I'm actually not comfortable with wearing sleeveless and shorts around the public. Now, I feel comfortable with these already.

Time really passes by so fast! You know I kept on saying that, right? Less than two months from now, it's going to be a new school year already, and I'm so, so excited for the Junior year! I wanted to buy that wanted bag already..haha.. :))

Well, that's it for now! Bye! :D

Oh, so Random!

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? I'm doing fine, as always.

Okay, this day had been great! But just like any ordinary day, there are some ups and downs.

So, my day started being awakened by my mother to cook some rice, i went back to sleep, and woke up again two hours later. I greeted my parents, and my baby brother, with a kiss, as we usually do every morning. I thought that there would be no brownout after all, since brownout did not occur at 8am (our brownout schedule), but some time after I took my breakfast, . . . BANG! The brownout! Tsk. I was really glad to think there would be no brownout..hahaha..xDD

You know what's kind'a new around our place? There were summer breezes! I like the feeling of being touched by the wind..haha.. :))

During the afternoon, we played badminton with my sister and mother, and played basketball with them too! I don't like playing badminton with my sister at all, the reason is confidential. I played badminton with my mother all day long! I bet this stiff pain I'm feeling around my arms would go away on the next day with this! We shoot some hoops, again with my mother and sister! It's a lot of fun, even though I could not get the ball into the ring most of the time!

I forgot to tell you, I've been suffering from stiff arms all day, because yesterday, we had shoot some hoops for a long period of time! I think it's getting better now!

While surfing the net, I had thought of looking through more photos of Danbo, not Cardbo as what I had told you in my previous posts. I found this site: http://fiveprime.org/hivemind/Tags/danbo
These photos of him (it) are so cute! Here's one!

Photo from: http://fiveprime.org/hivemind/Tags/danbo , http://www.flickr.com/photos/29126496@N06/3907011614

Another also I had looked through are some funny Yahoo answers, from http://www.yahoolaughs.com! They are funny, for me, I guess, but I don't know for you.

And oh, by the way, I tried Cleverbot.com too while surfing the net! It was fun talking to it. It thinks like human! Try talking to it! Hahaha...ask it some witty questions or whatnot!

My mother plans us to go to our nearby beach and swim there! I bet it would be great, I just hope I wouldn't get infected by the germs the water's contaminated with!

I added and rearranged some songs in my Mixpod playlist by the way.

Thanks to all who comment on my posts! I really appreciate them! I also try to comment you back!

Follow me on Tumblr if you want! Here's my URL: http://vanesanice.tumblr.com

Well, that's it for now! Short post, eh? Thanks for reading! Comment if you want! :D

Another Shopping Session..haha.. :DD and..some random stuffs to talk about!

Hello there everyone! How are you all? You know what? I'm already enjoying a bit of this summer! One of the things that made me enjoy it is the shopping, window and actual-buying kinds of shopping..ahaha.. xDD

So, last Sunday, we went shopping again, in Robinson's Department Store, and I also took a picture of some things I would want to buy or save them for the next time! Here they are!

Pictures of me: 1st pic - Mmm..xDD, 2nd pic - waah..sexy? LOL, 3rd pic - i look fat (O.o)

This dress looks great :D

I want to have one of these T-shirts :)

swimsuits! if ever we're going to push through with swimming :/

I'll save this for next school year ;)I so love this bag! I like the designs! :)

Well, enough of that! :) I'm going to talk about random stuffs right now! :D

Okay! You know what? Worrying about my height has struck me already. I seem to not grow taller anymore. I'm just 5 feet, unchanged since last year. I took a multivitamin, Cherifer PGM, had some exercises like badminton and basketball just this recently, go to bed a little earlier now, drink milk, and a lot more! I'm also planning to not make my bag really heavy anymore this coming school year, by applying for a locker along with my bestie! Oh, men, I'm already very excited for being a Junior HS already! haha..xDD so where was I? Oh yeah, about my height. Two of my friends also made statuses about worrying about their height too. Yep, trying to be taller is one of the things we should do this summer!

And oh, you know what, again? haha..I had realized that this rotating brownout had helped me keep away from sitting in front of the computer! God really does some great things! :D I hope I could grow taller, being small is just so miserable! My father kept on telling me to not give too much time in front of the computer and get some good exercise!

I'll do some worthwhile stuff from now on!

I'm going to share to you this pic! Cardbo's so cute! haha.. :))

Well, that's it for now! Bye! :)

Feeling Good

Hello everyone! How ya'll doin? Me, I'm feeling better now, from what I'm feeling yesterday. To those who read my previous post, sorry that I also made you sad and gloomy, well, sort of. Today, maybe I'm going to bring back the happiness here in my post, just, maybe. :)

Well, I woke up late in the morning, as usual, 10:20am to be exact. I did my usual routine, eat breakfast, brush my teeth, and do some chores. I did some of my chores well and without my mother telling me to do them so that I could please her and my father. We did our chores as early as we can so that we wouldn't have to worry about things to do when brownout comes. We had our rotating brownout at 1 in the afternoon to 6 in the evening. During the brownout, we just stayed outside, watched some basketball games in our backyard, had some bike-rides, and a lot more. We ate dinner and went to our cousin's birthday party after that. It was just like any other party, with the food, dancing, and singing. And you know what? I was so astonished on how my baby cousin danced to the music! We really enjoyed her dancing! She just so cute! :D

By the way, with all the sadness I felt yesterday, I forgot to tell you that I had finally finished reading the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, in just 3 days! I started last Sunday and ended last Tuesday! It was such a great story, about a boy, named Santiago, who followed his dreams, in search for his treasure. He met lots of people, the old Gypsy woman, the old king of Salem, the thief, the Englishman, the Alchemist, and a lot more to mention! He also met a girl he fell in love with, which, her name is Fatima. Well, you better read the book to know about it more!

You know, I enjoy Tumblr very much, looking through some quote graphics, pictures, and a lot more!

Oh, yes I am..haha.. :)) Credits to www.charleenang.tumblr.com

This is so cute! From http://sugarfreak.tumblr.com/post/507802738/ohlook-its-cardbo-hihi

This too! :D http://sugarfreak.tumblr.com/post/507798513/i-just-love-bunnies

See? There are a lot of cool stuffs to learn in Tumblr! You should make an account if you want! :D

I once decided to make a new layout for my blog, but then I changed my mind, since I'm still not fed up with my recent layout..hehe.. ;)) But I wish, though, to have some idea on my new layout! Maybe some of you guys are fed up with it, or not?

I'm planning to go shopping again tomorrow with my brother and sister, and I hope my brother won't make me mad again...haha.. :DD I'll think about it later, what I would buy. Wish I could find a computer shop so that I could ask for an installer for Adobe Photoshop!

Yesterday, and this morning and afternoon, I haven't replied, in text message, two of my best pals because I didn't have load. I was so happy that my mother had loaded me again this evening! I tried to make it up to them. :D

Well, that's it for now! Hope I brought back the joy here in my blog! Bye! :)

Shopping! :)

Good evening everyone! How are you all? I'm fine, as always!

Today's Easter Sunday!

Easter is a Christian holiday. It is when Christians believe that Jesus Christ is said to have returned from the dead. Christians believe that Easter is the holiest day in the year. Easter is a Christian Holy Day celebrated on the first Sunday, following the first full moon, following the first day of spring.

Easter is not held on the same date every year. Currently all Christian Churches agree on how the date is calculated. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday, following the first full moon, at least 14 days after the Spring Equinox. This means it is celebrated in March or April, most of the time.

Western churches, like the Roman Catholic Church, use the Gregorian calendar and Eastern churches, like the Eastern Orthodox Church, use the Julian calendar. Because of this the date of Easter celebrations is different for these two types of churches even though the way they calculate the date is the same.

Some people who are not Christians celebrate the beginning of Spring at Easter.

The word Easter comes from the ancient German word for April.

From http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter

Just as what I've told you in my previous post, we went shopping in Limketkai and bought various things! Unfortunately, my mother only let me bring my received P1000 for me to buy those things, so, as expected, I only bought not as much, since I bought things that were expensive. Here are what I've bought:

Hmm..how much have I spent? Okay, I brought P1,220 all in all. We went to the National Bookstore and bought four (4) books namely:
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (P245)
  • By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept (P245)
  • and 2 horror books my brother bought. (P80+P80=P160)
That would be a total of P650. We used my brother's money, P500, and a part of my money, P150. What's left of me now was P1,070.

Then, we went to Robinson's Department Store and bought my ballet flats! It costs P599.75. I used only my own money this time, P1,000 to pay for it and the change was P400.25. P470.25 was what's left. Then, I gave P200 to my mother and P270.25 was what's left. I decided to repay my brother for his money {P500 - P160 = P340 - 100 (for my mother) = P240}. Oh..xDD what's left of me now is P30.25, plus the remaining money I haven't spent yet, P2500 + P30.25 = P2,530.25!

So, how much did we spend? P650 + P599.75 = P1,249.75! Are my calculations right? Comment here if there are some errors, or comment even if there's none..haha.. :)) I'll edit this post as soon as possible if there are errors.

We really did spend a lot of money! I'll try to practice proper money management more! :D

Finally! I finally have my most wished ballet flats! I made a collage just for it, in Picnik.com!

...and made some edits like these!

Quotations by: Oprah Winfrey (top) and Carl Gustav Jung (bottom)

You may click the images for a closer view! I somehow made the art of Photography with this shoe! :)

Oh! How about the books? I love them! I already started reading a bit of the two books! We bought two novels, one for me and one for my sister! Both of them are by Paulo Coelho, since I've heard he's an author of international bestseller books! It's a good thing my parents suggested us to buy pocketbooks so that we could enhance our reading skills and vocabulary.

Well, that's it for now! This had been a very, very long post because of the photos! Thanks for reading, and bye! :)

Baby, Now that I've Found You

Oh, you ask about the blog post title? It's just another song that's in my head recently! It's a song by Allison Krauss. I'm back to making song titles as my blog post title..haha.. xDD hmm..since when have I done this in my blog? It's funny how I can't remember.. :))

Well, today's Black Saturday. What about it? Holy Saturday (Latin: Sabbatum Sanctum) is the day after Good Friday. It is the day before Easter and the last day of Holy Week, in which Christians prepare for Easter. This day commemorates the day that Jesus Christ's body lay in the tomb. (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Saturday) I haven't eaten pork so far on this day. -_-

On this day, I woke up earlier than usual, since we had an agreement with my sister about the one who woke up later would have a consequence, but we didn't have it anyway. We ate one of my favorite food, and a classic breakfast, eggs, hard-boiled to be specific. We did some chores, as usual, and went bike-riding around our place! It was so fun, with my mother and sister! We had it again in the afternoon.

While surfing the net, like now, I had noticed that Google has been encountering problems, like showing this whenever I search!

When I type in the characters, that still shows up! Is it only me, or have you encountered this too? From now on, I'll use Yahoo instead to search.

My summer, so far, is boring. We just stayed at home, do some chores, use the World Wide Web, went outdoors to play around, and a lot more! The "play around" part isn't boring at all, it's just that we did the same stuff over and over again everyday. I got envious at my friends who went to other places to have their vacation there, like one went to Davao, and the other went to Iloilo and Cebu. Wish I could at least have swimming lessons, something extraordinary like that. I really hope my parents would go on with the plan.

I'm kind'a missing school right now! The teachers, classmates, schoolmates, friends, and the like! I never thought that I would miss my classmates, because actually, I really thought that I would not miss them because I had been part of the "worst class section in the school campus" with them, which I did not like about the school year! Maybe I missed them because we really had a lot of fun during the school year because of them! Despite the boring school year we had (because of the Vice Principal making rules for us since our principal wasn't always around in school), we still somewhat enjoyed it because of them!

By the way, tomorrow, we would go to Limketkai to go shopping! I could finally use my OWN money to buy my wanted clothes, shoes, accessories, books, food, snacks, and the like! I'm just like any other girl of my age who really likes to buy these things, right? haha..xDD

I would like to buy one of these:

and any clothing that pleases my eyes! I just hope that I would look good in them..haha.. :))

I'll also buy any interesting pocketbook that I could find in National Bookstore, like any book by Paulo Coelho or Meg Cabot! I would want to increase my reading skills. It's like an adventure reading stories!

..and..yeah, by the way, about the Adobe Photoshop, we would instead ask a computer technician to install it for us, since, you know, me, I get nervous in dealing stuffs like installations and whatnot! I fear of my computer having problems like viruses, pop-ups, and the like! So, better consult a professional than doing things by myself unsurely!

Well, that's it for now! Bye! :) Thanks for reading!

EDIT: It's so bad that even people who know me reject my friend request! It really hurts me so much! Do they snob me or something? Did they forget about me? Or they just don't like me to be their friend on Facebook because they're hiding something from me or whatsoever? But oh well, who cares? I'll stop giving friend requests to them if they'll ignore it for the third time! Even my old classmate three (3) years ago rejected my friend request, and also my friend whom I've met last summer who's now in college rejected it too! OoOh..if it was an accident, why would it happen for the second time? I really hate it!

I'll edit this soon if I still have something to say! Bye! :D

If We Ever Meet Again

Oh, why I made that the title of my post? This is a song by Katy Perry feat Timbaland, and I kind'a like this song!
"I'll never be the same, if we ever meet again."
That would somewhat may be true in my case because I would want to transform to a new me to my classmates and schoolmates when I come back for the next school year, but retain my hardworking self in terms of studying hard to top the class once again!

You know some things which I want to change in me? Here they are:
  • My lazy and procrastinating attitude - it's already affecting me and others. My work becomes delayed because of this. I sometimes could not satisfy others because of being lazy to do some things. But I'm not always like this, just at times when I feel like it.
  • My shy and silent self - you know why I would want to change this? It's because I would want to make more friends, and that I should already mingle with others so that I would increase my public relations. With public relations, I could win friends in school, and you know what that means? They would elect me as officer in clubs, and a lot more! *sigh* I don't think I can change my own self in terms of these. I kept on promising to myself that I would be more friendly but it's still the same. But it's OK, that's really who I am! I know this could be a good attitude at times, as what some of you might think, so, I might as well keep this self of mine! I just have to make some adjustments!
  • My "uncontented" self - I, sometimes, won't be contented with what I have, and what I had decided. I always want to change my layout, for example. I want to buy new clothes and shoes, even though I already have a lot of them, well, except for the shoes that I only have four pairs of them! I don't know if that is the right characteristic of this self of mine.
  • Laughing easily at jokes - yeah, I should stop being like this, because I'm like crazy when I am like this, right? I should only laugh at really funny jokes from now on..haha.. :DD
  • and..well, maybe that's it! That's all I could think of for now! :)

Today is Good Friday, for the Christians, Catholics, and many more religions that celebrate this Holy Week. Many people go to church this holy week. Malls and Groceries were closed because of this. Neighborhoods became silent, since people all went to church to hear masses and make confessions for their sins.

This would be my prayer:
Lord God, we praise You, Creator of Heaven and Earth, without You, we are nothing. please forgive us for all the sins that we had committed to You and to others, and help us forgive those who had sinned against us. I thank You God for everything, for all the blessings that You had given to us, for my life, my family, friends, knowledge, wisdom, talents and skills, food, shelter, clothing, what I am now, and many more! Please shower us more blessings, oh God! I confess to you all my sins. Help me refrain from doing wrong! Amen.
Well, that's it for now!

And wait, by the way, thank you so much to those who suggested tips on how I could have Photoshop installed on my computer! I really hope I could try those and have it already!

Oh, and whew! I had just realized right now that Google's problem about our "computer sending automated queries" had already been fixed! I'm just glad it was! Have you guys encountered this too? Google letting us type in the letters that ensure us that we're human?

My final goodbye! :D

April Fool's Day! :P and Maundy Thursday..

Hello everyone! Just a quick post here! :)

I did nothing extraordinary for April Fool's Day, since we usually don't celebrate it here. Aside from the April Fool's Day, we have, for the Christians and Catholics, the Maundy Thursday, and tomorrow would be Good Friday.

The only thing I did that was connected to that April Fool's Day is watching some comedy shows like Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and iCarly from Nickelodeon, a movie entitled Marci X, and many others.

By the way, I made a new header, without using Photoshop software! Aha! But I think the quality would be better if I edited it on the software. I actually made the header from the online Photoshop.

So, do you like the header? Are there any recommended improvements?

Thank you so much to those who recommended me some things about how I could have Adobe Photoshop installed on my computer! I'll try to do those! :)

Well, that's it for now! Short post! :D

Bye! :)
