The Tragedy of Forgetfulness and Something Else

December 7, 2013  |  Deep Thoughts, My Life, Random

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

Goodbye Twenties, Hello Dirty Thirties, Happy Birthday Me!

December 4, 2013  |  Birthday, My Life

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!

Hello December

December 1, 2013  |  My Life

I can’t believe we are welcoming December yet again in our lives, it’s always been and will always be my favorite month out of the year regardless of what happens.  It happens to be my birth month and when winter ‘should’ start in most countries.  In a few short days we will be saying good bye to 2013 and Hello to 2014, and call me crazy but I am a fan of even numbered years (although I was born in an odd number year) and I always have a feeling good things will happen.

HelloDecember

November has been a great month for me, I travelled to New York, I met Zachary Levi (in person), Steve Wozniak, and many more.  I bought my beloved iPad Air and iPad mini retina (well both were given as birthday gifts from my loved ones) and just had the time of my life.  I felt light and full of life and humor and I hope this will continue onwards to December.  I really do want to keep up to date with my blog but I just find something stopping me from doing that.  What I have yet to discover, I probably need to go into therapy for that (not my Apple Obsession) just to figure out why I get writer’s block when I come near a computer, or the fact that I choose to watch my TV Shows rather than do anything else hehe.  Also, online shopping therapy, that needs to be discussed as well.

So to December, I say bring it, and to the next three days before my birthday, I say GIFT WRAP EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING AND JUST SEND IT TO ME, I do enjoy birthday cards and the wrapping more than anything else :P

James Franco & Seth Rogan Take Over “Bound 2”

November 25, 2013  |  Link Surfing, Music I Love

A few days ago Kanye West unveiled his latest music video with his fiancee Kim Kardashian “Bound 2” and based on all the hype she was topless in the video and acting all lovey-dovey.  The video sucked majorly, they both had the chemistry of a rat and a snake (and snakes eat rats so you know there is no chemistry there).   James Franco and Seth Rogen decided to remake the video and this is more emotion than Kanye & Kim would ever show especially since her face is frozen that way for the rest of time :P Watch and enjoy! (P.S. Like the original it’s a bit NFSW so beware! :P)

P.S. Have I ever mentioned how much I loves me some James Franco?

[Events] Shadowland’s Premiere Show in Kuwait

November 23, 2013  |  Events

Last Wednesday, November 20th I was invited by the kind people of Event Mania & Local Flavor to attend the premiere preview show of Pilobolus’s Shadowland.  This award winning show presented by an American Modern Dance Company has made Kuwait its first stop in their Middle East tour.

Shadowland1

Going into the show, which was located in the Ice Skating Rink (could we just stop using the Ice Skating Rink as a venue for everything.. It’s cold even if they melt some of the ice and it just isn’t insanely comfortable).  The invite mentioned we would be attending a Premiere show, which I thought meant seeing the entire deal but unfortunately we were just given glimpses into the show by witnessing four small acts.

[TV Shows] New Shows Receiving Pick Ups & Cancellations

November 20, 2013  |  Fall TV 2013, TV

Some of these new show pick ups will come as a shock to others such as “Dads” (which in my opinion should’ve been cancelled a while back) and some might not surprise you such as “The Originals” but it’s news for the most part along with some veteran show renewals and cancellations.  So if you’re a TV Show junkie like I am, then you’ll find the below information quite interesting.

DADS

“DADS” is a new multi-camera comedy about two successful guys in their 30s who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them.  Starring Seth Green (Family Guy) as Eli and Giovanni Ribisi (My Name is Earl) as Warner who are lifelong best friends and co-founders of Ghost Child Games, a successful video game company. Vanessa Lachey (as Camila) Martin Mull (as Crawford – Warner’s Dad) and Peter Riegert (as David – Eli’s Dad) also star.  I personally found the show offensive sometimes and just too much of a cliche to continue watching but it is a distraction so proceed at your own risk.
