Holy Shitzu! WordPress has just released the latest version of its blogging platform, version 3.8 and it has become a RADICAL change! Everything is different, it’s more modern, has a cleaner look, you can customize a bit more stuff and most importantly it should function much better than before.
I haven’t been more shocked or surprised by a change like this than well when version 3.0 came out I believe. I am liking it so far. Also next year’s “IT” theme should be “Twenty-Fourteen”. I guess this means I should get to cracking on your theme ZDistrict, right? :P
If you haven’t updated be sure to backup your files and then press the update button, nothing bad should happen but in case it should it’s better to be prepared.
The US Department of Energy reports the average American household owns 25 consumer electronic devices that are left plugged in and draining energy while not in use. To add to the fire, Americans own billions of electronic products that end up in landfills when used or unwanted, leaching toxins and wasting valuable recyclable materials.
A good way to stop contributing to e-waste and cut your vampire energy is with green gadgets made from sustainable materials instead of plastic or with new technologies that lower your electricity use while you enjoy your tech toys. If you like your gadgets and have them plugged in all over the house, you might want to compare energy rates for utilities in your area to see if you would do better with a different provider.
Last weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time, @GulfRun held it’s annual 24 hour Karting Endurance Race at the newly opened Sirrb Circuit (@Sirbbcircuit). It began Friday December 6th afternoon at 4pm and ended the following day at 4:30pm.
To say it was fun is an understatement simply because the newly opened race track and organization this year surpassed my expectations and truly gave you a sense that you were not in Kuwait. The track had visible areas for the spectators to sit and watch whether they wanted an aerial view of the race or one on the ground and being a friend of the Gulf Run team I was able to enjoy the special accommodations made for us in a VIP area available above the track with the amazing DJ, DJ B who brought back old school Hip Hop & Rap, as well as a special viewing area in the Pit.
More and more shows are facing the big ax and being cancelled whether it is during the current season or being allowed to air for one final season and then it will be a good-bye. While others are seeing a renewal and pick up, in today’s batch I have a few shows listed which are either cancelled or renewed while also supplying you with information about when some shows will be airing their latest seasons and more.
On the renewals, “WITCHES OF EAST END” has been picked up for a second season. This new show is based on Melissa de la Cruz’s best selling novel, it centers on the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters – both of whom unknowingly are their family’s next generation of witches – who lead a seemingly quiet uneventful modern day lives in a secluded seaside town of North Hampton called ‘Fair Haven’. The mother and aunt are cursed with immortality curses one of them being an eternal mother (which means when her daughters die [which they always do] she becomes pregnant again and gives birth to the same daughters all over again) and the other has 9 lives like a cat. It’s fun and interesting and I am loving each episode because it reminds me of “CHARMED” in a way. I’m happy it’s got a new season.
During the last week of November I was invited by Fantasy World along with my little sister Lujain to check out their latest exciting and challenging competition of its latest remote control robotics, the Combat Creatures. The event took place in the Avenues, Mezzanine floor right in front of the bookstore “That Al Salasil” where a beautiful set up was available for the two days of the competition November 28 – 29th.
The battle was raging over a period of two days and was open to kids of the age 6 and onwards, the participants were able to put their strategy, skills, and hand-eye coordination to the test in order to win one of the many prizes. If you are wondering what the Combat Creatures were? Well wonder no more. I’m here to crack down on everything and anything!
Have you ever grabbed a piece of paper and a pen and was about to write something that was on your mind and the moment you put the pen on the paper it flies out of your head? Or have you ever opened a new tab in your browser and wanted to type a URL link and just stared blankly at the screen not being able to remember a thing about what you wanted to do?
No? Really, double check think about it again.
That just happened to me, two bouts of forgetfulness took place and it freaked me out. I think I’ll blame the fact that I was watching a TV Show while attempting to multi-task and for some reason the thoughts just flew out of my head but it can also mean that I’m ancient now. My memory has been bad lately and I don’t know what to do to improve it. I can’t remember things anymore whereas before I used to be able to remember everything and anything. Now I need to remember what I wanted to write on that piece of paper and what I wanted to search for :/ It’s going to bug me until I figure it out.
Share with me your experiences, if you had any hehe.
UPDATE: I just remembered I wanted to double check my phone bill that’s the URL I wanted to visit LOL! Oh thank God I won’t be losing sleep on that :P
Saying goodbye to the twenties felt like a sad thing really, I was sad for a little tiny bit because I will be closing that chapter in my life until I realized that in my twenties I learned a lot of things and I matured to a different level which meant that a lot of mistakes were formed and heart aches, etc. So, saying Hello to the Thirties might not be such a bad thing after all, it just means I’m at a wiser stage in life and feeling more powered and confident in my skin! That’s when I realized I should just say Happy Birthday to the 30 year old me and embrace it.
Many people would have long check lists of things to do in their twenties, I thought of keeping one of those but then thought why should I live life by a checklist, why not be spontaneous and take it one day at a time and see how the tide takes me over that hill. Which is why this past year I didn’t have a checklist but I did experience some things for the first time. I met my beloved Steve Wozniak (had it been Steve Jobs I would’ve just died), I met Zachary Levi the gorgeous nerd from “Chuck” (had it been Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer or James Franco or even Johnny Depp I would’ve just died, came back, and died again a couple of times). I got to have my first surgery ever (not that it was a fun thing but interesting to say something), I made more friends, kicked out others from the friends list and just embraced it. I don’t know what else I did but I know that I took some risks. I do hope that this year brings me an INSANE amount of happiness and joy! And to you all as well.
To my fellow Sagittarian birthdays I also wish you a Happy one! And Happy Birthday Little Jimmy (that’s me)!
Can’t wait to open presents and eat CAKE!
