I’m Still Alive

April 7, 2014  |  My Life, Random, Rants

I’m still alive and around, I know I pretty much haven’t been updating as often as I should and I deserve a real kick in the bum but I promise (yes this time I will keep it) [no really I will keep it] to write more if only a few lines to get the voices out of my head.

Yes although I am somewhat sane, I tend to have voices talking to me in my head sometimes and they just can’t stop. Life as an unemployed individual is really not always that fun, especially since you can’t travel on your own funds and waste the time on a never-ending vacation. I have pretty much depleted all of my savings and funds and am beyond literally broke!

Things might be “somewhat” looking up as I am in the final process of finalizing my papers for a Government job. Yes the Private sector has deemed me not “fresh” enough or not “experienced” enough to hire and thus the dilemma of walking in either too qualified or not qualified enough has haunted me. Not to mention how they want an MBA simply because they just do. I mean, it’s good that I even graduated university and didn’t drop out like my idol Steven Paul Jobs! *Just Kidding* (seriously I’m kidding)! Oh wow, how I missed this sort of babbling on endlessly (hopefully not since this post has to end) and just writing out what those voices in my head say. I have silenced them for so long.

Damn, I have missed you blog, seriously missed you! I now understand why I feel so lonely some days! I have tried to replace my blog with Instagram (@Jacqui) or reading books and watching TV shows and that just doesn’t help me vent out.

I will now vent once a day! :P Watch out! To those of you who are still around, *waves hello!*

[TV Shows] Renewals & Cancellations of Feb.2014

March 12, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

Since March has just begun, I didn’t think it would be helpful to jump the gun and call this the March Edition but shows that were renewed and cancelled these past two weeks will be making it to the list.  So what’s been cleared off our lists and what’s been renewed?  Well, let me put on my TV Cap and get to reporting!

being-mary-jane-s01e01

First up in the RENEWALS is the BET original series BEING MARY JANE starring the ever beautiful GABRIELLE UNION as Mary Jane Paul.  Mary Jane is a one-woman show: a successful TV news anchor, entirely self-sufficient powerhouse who remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her insane motivation.  Some might say that her family has too much drama sometimes it can slow her down.  In this series we get to see Mary Jane struggle to juggle her work life, her family, her love life and so much more.  In a way, we are all Mary Janes and we can sometimes be insanely smart and right; and then the other times we’d make stupid decisions.  I LOVED the first season and really kept watching it until it ended and even then I wanted more, I am just so happy it was renewed and I will get to see more of BEING MARY JANE.

What else was renewed and cancelled?

What is the big fuss about Flappy Bird?

March 2, 2014  |  Gaming, Guest Writers

In the short span of a just a few weeks, an unlikely game became the talk of the Internet. “Flappy Bird” is a simple but endlessly challenging game in which you pilot an awkward bird through endless obstacles. According to Think Gaming, “Flappy Bird” reached an estimated download rate of more than 147,000 per day. Despite its success, the game’s developer has chosen to pull it from the iTunes store and the global phenomenon surrounding the title is winding down. But what is the real story behind “Flappy Bird?”

The Ugly Duckling

Uploaded to the iTunes store in May of 2013, “Flappy Bird” is not a particularly complicated game. Players steer a pixelated bird by tapping the screen repeatedly to gain altitude. The goal is to navigate the little bird through an endless series of green pipes that look suspiciously like the pipes of “Super Mario World.” Each time a player successfully navigates through a set of pipes a single point is awarded. Touching a pipe leads to death and a glaring “Game Over” screen. The addictive quality of the game lies in the fact that getting even one point is a monumental challenge.

[Gadget Review] Snugg iPad mini Ultra Thin Smart Case

February 13, 2014  |  Reviews, Techie

Back in October I received an iPad mini case from TheSnugg company to test out and review, winter came along and I found myself constantly attached to my iPad mini and hopelessly detached with doing anything but moderately browsing the internet and catching up my TV Shows.  Now however I find it is the perfect time to share my thoughts and remarks on this case.

I received the “Snugg iPad mini Ultra Thin Smart Case in Orange” which is still available, so if you find yourself looking for a snazzy case then this might be the one for you.  What’s different between this case and any of the original Apple cases?  Well the price difference is the major selling point here.  You can grab this case currently for the discounted price of 29.99$ and it is available in 9 colors.

Google Nexus Is Taking Over!

February 4, 2014  |  Guest Writers, Techie

Note: The opinions expressed in this article solely belong to the guest writer and do not necessarily express my deepest thoughts about Google :P

With the Nexus 7, Google is making a strong argument for why it might deserve to wear the mobile crown. From Internet surfing to playing games, staying connected with friends and getting the news, more and more people are turning to tablets to keep them in the loop when at home or on the go. The beauty of a tablet is that it provides most of the functionality of a laptop at a fraction of the size and cost.

While smartphones are good for making calls, instant messaging and the occasional round of Angry Birds, tablets make it easier to get stuff done without having to squint at a 4-inch display. As for the Nexus 7, developers bolstered the internals and hardware of the device in recent months, giving more reasons for interested consumers to check out the new Google tablet.

January 28, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

January is almost over and there have been many cancellations and renewals of our favorite shows (or rather just some of mine) so here is the latest updated list of cancellations and renewals.

helloladies

First up in the cancellations, is the new HBO tv show “HELLO LADIES“.  This new comedy show was co-written, directed by and starring Stephen Merchant.  The series follows a 6 foot 7 inch gawky englishman who is searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles.  He thinks he’s the shizzles, charming insanely amazing dude, but he comes off as a major douche bag who is just trying too hard.  The series follows him around and we see the failed love encounters if you can call them that.

That’s not all, let’s see who else got the ax this early on in the season.
