70% Back — Where Have I Been?

As you’ve noticed, I’ve been gone in my own personally space here in the world wide web for many months. My wordpress has sending me anniversary notification but it saddened me because I wasn’t able to fulfill my duties as self-proclaimed blogger.

During the time I was gone, I focused on finding myself after the great break-up. My ex was never in good terms, until I finally forgive him, forgive myself and forgive the people involved in our great divide. It didn’t mean we were back as boyfriends, we came to the point where we became friends and somehow trying to see each other and trying not to feel the hurt anymore. We’ve decided that we’re better off friends. I’ve been vocal about this because from the first place he was here in this blog. He became most of the time my inspiration in writing stuff here, and that’s why I was also gone writing because blogging reminded me of him always — and I was trying to escape from my past that time because it hurt every time — but I’m definitely okay now.

When I was gone, I got involved in an advocacy on spreading awareness concerning HIV/AIDS and self-worth. In this volunteerism, I engaged myself in activities such as counseling the people who are getting tested — yeah, I’ve undergone training to do it — and events organization (wherein I conquered my fear on dealing with people) and educating youth in different colleges and universities.

Actually, it wasn’t easy to be involved in an organization like this because it really takes my free and idle times. But to be honest I’ve never experienced to become as productive as what I am right now. I feel like my time is being spent well during these period. That’s why I had to set aside blogging just to find what I really want to happen in the next phase of my life and now with this new duty.

Another thing, my gaming hobby is not obsolete yet. I’m still having fun playing games on my phone. Later on I’ll go back to Granado Espada once I’ve got the laptop I’m looking for. I will try to squeeze it my schedule and let’s see what I can do.

Anyways, see you on my next post.

XOXOXOXOXO

Mr. You’re-Not-For-Me

When I wrote this I was in the shoes of the fabulous Taylor Swift, during her “White Horse” and “Teardrops on my Guitar” era. I wondered how she would thought of a boy that wasn’t really meant for her and the way she would move on.

So here it is… I hope you’d love it.
———–

image

Maybe you were the perfect guy,
But you’re not for me.
You’ve got the eyes I’m looking for,
You’re not for me.
They said I could find my prince,
But I guess it wasn’t you.
They said I could find love,
I think it ain’t from you.

The moment I realized the truth,
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.

I loved to touch the bridge of your nose,
But not anymore.
Your height fits me,
But we ain’t compatible.
They said you’re so cute,
I guess I have to agree.
But when they asked “D’ya love him?”
I said, “you were only just a dream!”

The moment I realized the truth
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.

I feel better with you,
Even I’m in the middle of no guarantee.
If I break my leg for loving you, it’s okay,
I’d still continue runnibg my life.

It isn’t about the attention,
It’s about being comfortable of whom I’m with.
Don’t worry, no fishnets is okay.
I don’t eant to be ridiculed, by the way.

Hookah-hooker boots,
I love you like my hooker boots.
My heart will tell you what’s the roots.
I love you like my hooker boots.
Don’t care of what they say.
You’re the only one who fit this way.
Baby, together we’ll run away.
I love you like my hooker boots.

Let’s zip up forever.
And lace our trust to one another.
Won’t do something that would break your heart.
I can’t imagine we’ll fall apart.

I love your skin on mine.
I will take you with me in every miles.
I will never ever leave you…
You’re my hooker boots every night.

Hookah-hooker boots,
I love you like my hooker boots.
My heart will tell you what’s the roots.
I love you like my hooker boots.
Don’t care of what they say.
You’re the only one who fit this way.
Baby, together we’ll run away.
I love you like my hooker boots.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 — In my View.

I could not imagine myself holding a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 this 2014. Thanks to my friend who became very supportive to me to complete my goal last 2013, and now I own my dream phone. As much as I don’t want to let go of my Samsung Galaxy S III, I have to give it to someone who dreamed of having it — I apologize to my Mom, someone wished for it first (IIRC). Haha!

This device is more than what I’ve expected. The fluidity of the screen, the built-in storage, RAM capacity, plus the new features of the S-Pen got me really impressed even though I’ve seen it a lot from different reviews in the world wide web. I could say that you really need to get hold of it before you could say that it’s really a fantastic smartphone from Samsung.

Design

The design was very sophisticated because of its faux leather (plastic) back cover design. It’s very light, and very handy as well, even though this device is really big. It has 5.7 inches (with 1080 x 1920 pixels) display that’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, which is perfectly good for viewing experience. S-pen is still located at the lower right, back corner of the smartphone. It’s quite hard to pull from from its space, and the reason behind, I think, is that Samsung has designed it to anticipate the chances of losing the stylus. Loud speaker is already located at the bottom part of the device as well, which made the speaker sound more efficient, so you won’t need a mount or external speakers anymore. As for the USB slot for charging and transferring files, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is now using micro USB 3.0. It enables the device to speed up the file transfer and charging. Don’t worry though as it could still use the microUSB 2.0 cable. Moreover, Remote IR is located on top of the device, right near the 3.5mm headphone jack slot. Sensors and the front-facing camera are all at the right side of the call speaker (unlike with Galaxy S4, on both sides of the speaker), but it still functions well in recognizing air gestures.

Feautures & Built-in Apps

Specs

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is running Android Jellybean 4.3 with the latest version of TouchWiz. It can run with fantastic fluidity because of the Quad-core 2.3 GHz and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors and chipset and 2.38gb of RAM — actually, 3gb RAM in total — the rest of the RAM is used when the phone is idle. Because of that, I enjoy more on maximizing the multi-window features and other high-graphic games and sketching apps. I just hope it would be as stable as this in the future. It’s  capable of finding LTE connection, date plan users — I believe you can ask your network to provide you the LTE set-up if you’re jumping from a non-LTE device and sim card to maximize your internet speed experience.

Lockscreen

The lockscreen is now more efficient to use. You can now do some activities without unlocking  your phone. You can either choose your list ‘Fave App’ or ‘Camera App’. You may also activate your ‘S note’ for immediate use. And the awesome part here is that once your music player is on, it can show you your playlist and choose a song directly from it.
image image image

By the way, you can also add a ‘Personal Message’ in the lockscreen as well.

image

S-Pen

Most of the features are quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 features particularly the Camera, Menus and Navigation. But one of the things that make the Galaxy Note 3 standout is the new S-Pen features that would captivate your Note 3 experience. By clicking the S-Pen button, the Air Command will give you access to 5 menus — the Action Memo, Scrapbooker, Screen Write, S Finder and Pen Window.

image

  • Action Memo – pops a notepad up and then allows you to put notes on it and do cool features with it, like saving, calling, texting or emailing a contact; directly searching to the internet, finding a place.

image image

  • Scrapbooker – allows you to save pictures or screen shot. It could be perfect if you love taking screenshots and putting note on it. Simply select the Scrapbooker, draw a square and it captures the target object. It’s not an ordinary screenshot, though. It provides information like the link where you got it.

image

  • Screen Write – it’s almost the same as the Scrapbooker the only difference here is that you can write or draw directly from the screenshot. It’s good for highlighting things in the images.

image

  • S Finder – Find everything in your phone by using it.  Apps, photos, files — Everything. In the picture below, I tried to look for the “Sketch”.

image

  • Pen Window – it’s almost like the Multi-Window feature. It gives power to your phone to open small windows of apps, like YouTube, Contacts, Calculator, Browser and more.

image

Speaking of securing your S-Pen, there are few options in the ‘Settings’ that would keep your S-Pen in mind so you won’t lose it.

My Magazine

It was a cool feature that has been added to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. You get to read and see update from your favorite News and Social Media sites in a Flip board style.
image

S Note & Evernote

To get your writing experience on the top level, this device is also empowered with the note-taking apps. It’s either you use your S-Pen or tap on your touchscreen keyboard, it’s fine.

(S Note – Left; Evernote – Right)

Sketchbook for Galaxy

Most fantastic built-in app for me is the Sketchbook! I love to draw that’s why. I’ve tried this app on my friend’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and it was a great experience. But the smoothness of the of the Note 3 adds awesomeness in the app. I was able to get some training in this app. I will post some of my works here on blog after this blog.
image

—————–

My overall experience so far is awesome, I’m getting what I need from this phone.  One thing I’ve noticed, but this is not a major issue of this device (it could be the app), is that the My Magazine app doesn’t totally close even if you keep on hitting back. It keeps running in your RAM. It could be helpful for your battery if you clear your RAM often.

It’s 2014 and We’re Up!

There were lots of challenges in 2013 that hindered me to blog and be active on most of my social networking accounts. I know many factors, like personal, financial and family issues, should not excuse me from writing and doing what I love, but it simply happened.

Despite of the challenges I’ve encountered last year, 2013 still ended up very graciously and efficiently. That was the year I survived in my career, I managed to live alone, I’ve moved on from relationship heartaches, I started to shape up my body, I’ve finally got other dream smartphone unexpectedly — which adds the reason I should be blogging now. I also found myself ENJOYING my SINGLE LIFE without putting too much blame to anyone else. I’m not ready to enter a new relationship yet, but I won’t be closing my doors. I just want to enjoy and do the things I really missed.

By the way, going back to the smartphone, I’ve finally got my much awaiting Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It was an advance Christmas present by a very close friend, and I could not deny that I’m enjoying it from the day I’ve got it. To tell you what, I was wishing for it, but I wasn’t really expecting. Because of that, I have managed to personally browse most of its cool features, aside from viewing tons of reviews on Youtube. Moreover, it tweaks my time and I was able to go back to drawing — thanks to its improved S-pen (stylus). I will provide you with more details about my experience with the Galaxy Note 3 after this blog.

To set your expectations, I’ll be putting all my not-so artistic works here, just so you know that I can also draw. Of course, I will be using my Galaxy Note 3 as well.

So there you go. I hope we all get a happy and productive 2014. I wish you all the luck and God Bless.

XOXOXOXOXO

Flexi phones: Would you like them?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was the most amazing phone I’ve ever seen so far in my entire life, but to tell you honestly, I was pretty much disappointed because it’s not the flexible phone I was expecting. But rumours came out and said that leading smartphone companies are going to launch something closer to my expectation. Thus, they invented the Flexible smartphones.

Samsung has created Samsung Galaxy Round. Here’s some of the things it does…

On the other hand, LG is joining the future trend, since it has invented the LG G-Flex, and I was amazed. I actually fell in love to its Wolverine (X-men) characteristics. Check it out:

Between the two, I would choose the one with Wolverine effect, the LG G-flex, unless if Samsung has a new feature to release. But all in all, both are perfect, especially for the people who always put their mobile phones or bags where it could damage. These smartphones are sure win.

Hope to see more of this in the coming years.

How’s your Smartphone Battery?

Smartphone users are all dealing with the same problem everyday: Battery life. Sometimes, I always wish there were AC outlets or usb ports everywhere so I can charge my phone right away, when I need it.

I experience this everyday of my life, even when I sleep. I never turn-off my 3G since I have always to be online for my job and whenever I’m downloading. I sometimes sleep with 90% of battery and wake up with 30% — and sometimes, even lower than that, otherwise it’s dead. I needed to recharge my phone as I take a bath going before I go to the office or somewhere else.

Because of that experience I thought of collecting the best tips I found in the world wide web on how to get your battery always “on”, which is I’m trying to implement now in my daily activities with my phone. Fortunately, there are plenty of them, so let’s start with…
