I've been wanting to buy a printer for the longest time now but the non-stop moving out and moving in to new accommodations since last year made me think twice. I have a LOT of stuff already and lugging a printer around isn't such a good idea. I was waiting 'til I get fully settled to think about it again.
Good thing after a few months I'm finally settled on my (hopefully--) permanent flat. My former flatmate moved in with me recently which makes it a lot better. Now it'll be just like old times. We can buy stuff that we both need and split the bill. That way the cost wouldn't really hurt.
Our first project is to get a smart and cost efficient printer. We saw this HP 2600 model which comes with a free HP 2600 toner pack and it seemed like a good deal but we're keeping our options open. We're still looking for a better deal so I guess we'll just continue looking around. Any suggestions?
Lately I've been thinking of some diversion and other things that I can do to make my free time more productive. It's not that I have a lot -- but when I do have, I usually spend it idly. Most of the time, specially when I'm beat, I spend half a day or more on mindless stuff. Facebook, surfing, more Facebook, etc. I wanted to do something worthwhile and thought of reviving my old online store. Why not, right? That would be interesting. I have to do some research though since I'm not so updated with the process anymore. I need to brush up on information considering the fact that online selling and e-commerce has evolved into so many ways than one over the past few years. The last time I did it was almost five years ago -- before I left home so I could imagine the amount of learning I need to cope up with to get the groove back on.
It will probably take a few weeks but I'm definitely pinning this project on my board now :)
By the way, for online sellers that need some financial boost or assistance, I stumbled upon www.kabbage.com and read how Kabbage's small business financing has helped a lot of online sellers expand their business. It seems legit and pretty easy so you might wanna check it out.
I had the chance to fly to Germany again after almost two years but was really bummed when I found out that I will be there on a Sunday. In Europe, Sunday is REALLY considered a rest day. Most shops are closed, even the malls except for some restos and fastfood chains. I was planning on going to Frankfurt Main but canned my plan the last minute because I figured I won't be doing anything there anyway if everything is closed.
Good thing our room looked very much comfy
Patrick and Squidward were on TV but they were talking in German, so I'll have to pass.
After a few hours of sleep, I decided to walk outside since the weather looked promising.
The streets were quite empty though.
I went to church to hear mass but didn't understand a thing. Well, it's the thought that counts, right?
St Boniface church at Luisenplatz
Walked around the block some more since the weather was really great.
I wonder what Leonardo 2013 is all about.
Spring + Summer mood
Boogey and Legolas sighting. Hehe
Decided to feed the ducks for a while before going back to the hotel.
It was so relaxing and destressing -- like taking a mini vacation.
I wanted to use the perennial cliche "it's not you, it's me" but I think "I'm sorry, I can't" would be more approriate. Hehe. Hindi ko kinaya.
It was hard enough to read a love story, let alone a love story OD-ed with sex. I'm sorry, di kaya ng powers ko tapusin. No matter how much I try. I know that sounded pretty lame of me but who cares?
I'm hitting the delete button right about now coz I can't accept the fact that I didn't finish a book -- which I consider a grave sin, btw. I can't stand reading it anymore. Each time I try, I end up a little bit more disgusted than the last; so hindi ko na lolokohin myself. LOL. No offense meant to those who enjoyed and are still enjoying the book though. To each their own, right? I guess I was just being a lola right here and not really enjoying the plot. It was a good book but it wasn't for me.

I've had my Instagram account for almost a year or so but it's only recently that I've managed to update and upload photos. Oftentimes I would just use it as an image enhancing tool and totally forget how cool of an app it was. Or is. Ang saya. It's like reliving my 365 photo blog which I wasn't able to keep last year when I started to move out a lot. Now I can do it again. Yay! Only this time, it was waaaay easier and faster. Just a few clicks and it's up.
Sharing with you some of my latest posts:
Breaking the giant leap into tiny steps
Way above the clouds :) Good morning from 35,000 feet :)
I've included an Instagram widget on my sidebar for more fun, too.
No, I am not getting married. At least not yet. It's imperative that I clear that out at the start of this post. LOL.
But two of my friends are! Really soon and I can't be happier for them. Just yesterday I was talking to one of them and I can see the giddy giddy happiness in her eyes. She just had so many stories to tell, which was kinda refreshing, since our chat cleared my mind off a few things. It was a breather.
We talked about the wedding plans, details, gowns - the works. She told me how she really wanted a garden or estate kind of a wedding but chose to have the traditional church wedding instead.
There are times though that she admitted she would still peek through some websites featuring bay area estate weddings and events and scan through their galleries. A girl can dream, right? And how could she not? She showed me some nice photos and it was really dreamy. I wish I could share it to you here but most of them are on private albums.
You can try and visit estateweddingsevents pictures though if you're also a bride and looking for some inspiration on your dream venue. I promise you'd like it. As for me, I'd stick to 'finding it dreamy and recommending to friends' mode since I don't need the inspiration just yet. Hehe.
