Picture Perfect…Not!

Some pictures in social media are very misleading. Not everything is what they seem…

I\’m busy with work nowadays. I\’ll try my best to update the blog using my iPad. I recently started using this as a compact alternative for a PC desktop while away from home. I\’m still taking photos but not as much. I\’m still on the \”thinking\” phase of my art/craft blog. I\’m hoping that I could start it soon.
I find myself again at a phase that I-want-to-start-something-new-but-I-need-money-to-get-it-over-with. Then I start work and I find myself tired and exhausted. My motivation slowly goes down the drain. Nevertheless, I will persist to reach my goals, I\’m not going to let exhaustion stop me. 
Continue planning and execute once ready!
Keeping my hopes high…

OAWSP: Chin Up!

TRIVIA:
I was teased to death by my brother and sisters for my long chin. Tsk…tsk…
On the bright side (medical and aesthetically speaking), I don\’t need any injection or surgical interventions to elongate my face. Well, I don\’t need to because I\’m not artista or a model. Same thing with my lips! I am forever thankful to Angelina Jolie bringing the sexy back for pouty lips.
It took a lot of self-affirmation to accept what I have and be the best that I am.
Accept yourself. You will realize there\’s more to life than peer pressure, comparisons and hate.
Good Night!

I\’m a Video Noob

I\’ve been doing some video editing with the use of some apps. It\’s new to me because, all this time I\’m more of a photo-taking enthusiast. Making a story look and sound coherent is tedious as compared to photo-editing. What I didn\’t expect was, I liked doing it. It makes me happy that I can tell stories through another medium. I foresee making vlog for a change. I have to work on my stutter (my greatest enemy in oral recitations during Nursing school). I want to try my hands on editing with a software using a computer (of course I have to do some research on this). Well for now I need to maximize my resources.
I\’m using apps like Lightt, Cameo, Flipagram, StopMotion and Magisto. Among the five, I like Cameo the best because it\’s easy to use. Next is Flipagram because you can use your photos to turn it into videos with music. I highly suggest to experiment with the 5 apps or other editing apps and you\’re likely to end up with unique results.

The Seaworld video was my first edit ever! It was taken during my birthday, that makes it extra special. While the PETCO park video was during my Downtown San Diego outing with my sis-in-law Ate Marilou.

Enjoy!

Music Monday: Penguin Prison

My husband is a music lover of different genres. With his quiet nature, I didn\’t expect him to be one. From the 60\’s until the present he has favorites. Though he\’s been living in the US for a longtime he still appreciates OPM especially from bands like Rocksteddy, Rivermaya, Eraseheads et.al. He grew up during the New Wave Era thus the obvious attachment (I didn\’t know till now that Bizarre Love Triangle was from NWE). For him, Depeche Mode is the greatest band of all time. Because DM has survived after the New Wave, outlived the 90\’s and surpassed the New Millenium. He\’s also a fanboy of Duran Duran having sported their hair when he was younger (I\’m still looking for evidence, I want to see how he looks like). I discovered Lorde because of him (kaya lang pinagsawaan na niya ang Royals). The list goes on. 
I also noticed his speaker collection from inside the house up to his truck. I was stunned! Why would one person needs so much of those! But I need to understand him like how he tries to understand the need of using different brushes when I apply make-up. I asked him why and answered back \”Because I care about my music!\” WOW!  Ikaw na ang super caring sa music. Same thing with watching a film. That\’s why we don\’t watch movies in the cinema. Our surround sound system are comparable to movie house standards. Kulang na nga lang 3D.
The song for today was from his random FM radio-heard selection. Good thing, Sound Hound is ever reliable for Seff\’s music researches.
Happy Monday to everyone
XOXO
