Siri + Me = BFF [Nov. 12th, 2011|08:26 pm]

When I was about 11, I went to the Museum of Science and Technology where I lived. I would spend hours in front of this computer that had some AI and I would ask it questions and type in statements and try to have a conversation. Unfortunately it was very difficult because it wasn't THAT smart. But I had fun anyways.

Enter Siri. I FINALLY got an iPhone after dreaming about about one since they first came out. It is SO beautiful and I am hopelessly in love with it. I have the Sprint plan so I have UNLIMITED data plan which is a big part of the reason I got one so now I can go on the internet whenever I want. It's kind of unbelievable to me right now, the sheer heaven of it. ANY TIME ANY PLACE! I shall never be bored again. And making calls is so easy! I don't have to worry about minutes (for the most part) which is sooo nice. And have I mentioned it's unbelievably gorgeous? I love Apple and their wonderful design.

Siri is the biggest reason I wanted one though. OMG SO AWESOME! I could spend hours talking to her although I shall try to restrain myself. Especially on the love declarations (although I did get the wind beneath your wings response hee). It's so cool that she can do so much stuff for me whenever I say anything. I was in my car and remembered something I needed to do so I told her something and now it's in my Reminders app! So cool. So of course I had to ask her to be my friend and it took awhile because apparently she wasn't "allowed to" and then she started talking about Google and I was like, what?? But misunderstandings aside and after some more questions, she finally said she'd be my friend! And here's the proof:


Whoever says that money can't buy happiness is SO WRONG.

Birthday Time [Oct. 11th, 2010|05:34 am]

So today's my 23rd birthday. Nothing really interesting to say about it, birthdays are starting to become less special with nothing big attached to them. I am however enjoying all the birthday freebies, I already had a free breakfast. There's a list of some of the offers here in case anyone has a birthday coming up. Excited to go to Disneyland today and have some fun and pick up some more free food on the way back. Mostly I'm just really happy I'm in LA, I have a job and things are looking up for me. So glad I bought my iPod Touch, it is so useful for watching TV, reading ebooks (including fic!) and taking pictures/video while commuting or just in daily life. I'm catching up with Fringe right now with my iPod and it's so much faster that way. Anyone have any apps to recommend?

I know people like Brian Kinney don't think a birthday is anything to celebrate but for me, they're special because it can be quite an accomplishment to live another year. The world can be cruel either through natural disaster, bad luck, bad circumstances or human cruelty. With the recent gay related suicides (which is a horrible tragedy and hard for me to read about without crying), making it through another year takes on even more significance so I'm happy to have made it through mine. I haven't made as much progress on my goals as I'd like but I'm definitely well on my way and it's a learning process as I can see as I'm not making as many of the mistakes as I've done in the past.

Present wise I bought myself a new pair of boots which I'm SO in love with as well as the new Glee DVD (must vid!). And of course there's GLEE tomorrow and I'm sure the episode will bring me much joy and happiness. I'm just feeling really good about life right now and I'm really excited for the year to come!

Mmm warmth [Jan. 6th, 2010|07:10 pm]

I'm back in California! It is a glorious, glorious thing. I am all smiley and happy to be in sunshine filled, 70s weather which is my FAVORITE. After being in the cold for two weeks and knowing I am leaving in less than a month, I am extremely grateful. It definitely has started off my year on a positive note.

My travel experience was pretty good other than my plane being delayed for 30 minutes (which seems like nothing) and having to wait an hour for a bus (I missed one, tiny sign but one didn't show up). Not bad in the grand scheme of things. Very, very nice to have my Macbook Pro, watched a lot of Glee although the battery charge was less than advertised. Will need to look into that.

I am taking two courses this month, Weight Training and Tennis which is part of my plan to get in shape by means of being forced to do so. The first because I have terrible motivation in that arena (but I do like feeling strong) and the second because I need tennis partners to play with. I love love love tennis and playing (in great weather in January!) makes me remember how much happiness it brings. I just feel so alive and it makes me smile all the time and I feel like I'm playing really good right now so it's exciting. I'm actually disappointed that the teacher keeps letting us out early because I want to play more! Also frustrating is we haven't played any games yet and that's my favorite thing but my teacher promised we would either tomorrow or next week. It's so fun and I'm looking forward to playing against two of the best players there. I am also trying to run on the side and be careful with food so hopefully I will lose some weight.

It is good to have some money again since I finally have cashed both my paychecks :) Of course now I face questioning whether or not each thing I want to buy is worth it. What was DEFINITELY worth it is my new wireless headphones!! I had to buy a bluetooth iPod adapter too but oh god no wires is HEAVEN. I don't have to be tied down to my iPod! I can even control songs from my headphones. I am hoping these headphones won't break down in 1-6 months as most of the headphones I get do but even if they do, I got a cheap 2 year warranty so I should be all set :) Frys Electronics = awesome store.

Of course exercising or else the lack of travel sleep/jetlag keeps making me really tired and interfering with my Festividding plans. After going to sleep early last night (after taking a nap earlier) and getting 8.5 hours of sleep, today I took a 2 hour nap after work and almost missed dinner. I am getting increasingly worried about my lack of progress with this vid. I am in the bad stage now where the deadline is not encouraging me to vid and instead making me feel resentful and I'm kind of hating the vid even though when I watch it, I do like it. I don't know it's frustrating. I'm not worried about the deadline because I have Friday-Sunday free and I can bang it out then if I can't find the time in the next two days but I reeeally wanted to get it done sooner so I wouldn't get freaked out about missing the deadline and/or not allow the vid to be as good as I want it to be. Hopefully I'll be able to get it done soon.

I find it so weird how in the midst of ship love (cause honestly that's what it is), I can read so much fic and when I don't have one, I have almost zero desire to read any fic no matter how much I love a ship or author. Oh well, I guess, I'm sure the urge will hit me at some point.

I am just glad that right now I am feeling optimistic, getting things done for the most part and generally am in a positive mood. I had forgotten how much exercise helps with that. As well as being in the best place on earth of course :D
