An Apple a Day Keeps the Windows Away!

W.O.R.D! LOL. ;p
Hmm... I am mac-girl! An Apple fan girl, but I do like working on windows. So, no hard feelings. I want to have both. Mac for my design and Windows for daily use. :p

Well, after trying for so many times, finally, I could upload pics directly from my computer. I used to post these cute pics on my previous post, but I experienced some errors. Blogger keep on saying "server rejected". I don't know how to fix this. At first, I thought it was my browser, so from Safari, I changed to Firefox, Well, FYI, I don't like blogging from firefox! But it stayed. So, I gave up and upload one pics to Photobucket and then uploaded it here. I'm so not in a mood to waste my time to upload twice, first on Photobucket, and then here, on blogger, so I tried to browse around, and I've just found out that so many people out there experienced the same thing. No one could solved this problem. So, there's nothing much I can do, except patiently wait until it works normally again, and until that time, no pics to post. Thanked God it's fine now. :)

Anyway, it rained a lot, these days, and I hate that. But lucky me, it always rained when I'm home. But it won't changed the fact that I hate rain. Umm.. I don't know what to say anymore, bcoz I'm not planning to blogging tonight, I just try to upload some pics, and see if it's working. And since it's working now, enjoy the pics! I'm off from the site. I'm working on my Essay, chapter IV now. It's almost finished, and I have to finished it before my final exam, which means, I only have 2 more weeks to go. I want to focus on my study for my final exam, so I could pass all the subjects then one of my besties is coming home, I want to enjoying our quality time without worrying and thinking about this and that, and I want to enjoying my Christmas and New Year to the fullest before I really really have to face my BIG and LAST EXAM. I've some plans for Christmas and New Year in head, we'll see if I could make it real. :)

See ya! :)

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ---Charles Dickens

I am badges addict!

You know I always love to play foursquare, as a jumper of course. Because I'm dying to get all of their cute badges. So, yesterday, I unlocked this badge, called Macy's badge. I don't know why, But I just love it.Very much! :D I'm so happy when I see it. It's  simple but so lovely to me ♥.

You've checked into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®! Enjoy this week’s excitement featuring great bands, musical acts, mischievous clowns & awe-inspiring floats! 5-4-3-2-1…Let’s Have a Parade!

Maybe to you, it looks mediocre, but yeah, I like it. :) Anyway, I decided to put daily photo on my blog. Well, I'll put any pics, that I like at that moment. Even it says "daily" I will change it whenever I like, or I'll put it a little longer. Once again I remind you that this is my blog so, please, do not complain about anything posted here. :) And oh yeah, I've change the font on my "Welcome" button. Currently, I'm in love with this font. :)
Well, I have no more words to say, so...


Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ---E.P. Powell

Well, hello again. I'm just feel like blogging, like I've never been blogging before. But I'd love to share some cute pics, instead of words. I don't know. I used to share pics on my tumblr, but as for now, I'd like to share it here and maybe there too. I am so crazy, right? :p

Anyway, I found this iPad pics on somewhere over the net, and OMG!! it's lovely. Makes me want to have an iPad badly. I also found this...

And this.. Oh come on! These kind of stufs wont reach an end. LOL. I'm just so in love with them :D Btw, I don't have much time to edit the colors like I always did, so yeah, I just uploaded they way they are. :) Maybe, if I'm not too lazy and have some free time, I'll try to playing with the colors again. :)
Hmm,, I have to stop now, it only makes me want to have it badly. See ya!! :D

Harry Potter Film Wizardry book

After passed my hectic and busy week, I finally managed to find a time for blogging. I mean, blogging for real. You know, actually I am not that busy, I'm just so hard to find a perfect time for blogging. It's because I have like an hour or two, but I used it for doing something else, like designing, browsing and downloading. Anyway, even I'm not "that" busy anymore, I still have lots of things to do, but before that, for all potter fan out there, who read this, enjoy the pics! :)

Well, I bought this book, this afternoon, when I went to a local bookstore called Gramedia. Lately, my boy and I visit to bookstore, frequently, to check some new books, novels, magazines and comics. As always, we went through the front door and walked. I reached the first shelf, and this book took my attention. Of course! It's Harry Potter! I AM Potter fan! I grabbed it and didn't put it back to the shelf. Damn! I want this book badly! It's Harry Potter Film Wizardry book. I checked for the price, but there's no price tag, but it said US$ 39.99. I was wondering how much is it in IDR. But I don't care! I want it! To make it short, finally I bought it, and it costs me 400.000 IDR. Expensive but sooooo worth it. Especially when you see the contents! :)  I am broke, but I'm happy. :D I took the pics, and now all you have to do is just enjoying the pics.. there you go :)

P.S. The pics is in its original quality :) More on fb :)

November Rain!

Hello guys!! What I've missed here? Well, as you know, I am so busy these days! So, here's what I've been doing lately. Oh, yeah, designing of course. :) And writing my essay and some other assignments. You know, couple days ago, I downloaded so many cute pics and played with its colors. I love colorful, and shabby and vintage colors at the same time. I also love B/W. I don't know. It seems like I love and likes everything! LOL. But yeah, you know my mood. :p

Click the image for larger view! Image will be opened in new tab! :)

Tell me what do you think and which one you guys like the most. It's so hard for me to choose, which I like the most. I like them all. :D Well, since it is impossible (read: I don't know how) to make rollover images that more than one, so, you have to compare it manually . :)
Original pics by Yvette Inufio

Here are some of my modifications with its color. I have some more, but I won't upload it here. This is enough I guess. Tell me what do you think. :)

Anyway, I also played with my Illustrator. Here's what I've got. This strawberry was my first attempt. I'm quite satisfied with the result. I just couldn't believe I finally made this! This is my first vector too! I didn't draw the strawberry manually, with my mouse-I do need a WACOM!-it's all done digitally in Adobe Illustrator CS4. I'm thinking to make it as my etsy shop logo, with some more modifications or well, I could sell it. I've found that some people sell vector like this. I don't know. I'll think about it later. As for now, I'm focusing on designing and learning new things and tools, for my personal improvement in design. Have I ever told ya, that I was afraid, stepping into the real world? Like working in design industries as a designer without a formal design backgrounds? Well, yes. I was afraid. I am so afraid that I'll make a wrong decision for my future. But, now, I am so confident about it. I mean, I'm not a genius and pro in designing stuffs. I still need practicing and follow some tutorials. I still keep on learning and practicing everyday. But yeah, I can see very clearly, how's my future will be like, with me working as a designer. I also plan to get some design courses. Just in case... well, as you know, some people need a prove that we're good before they choosing us designing for them. I mean, not everyone could believe in our works just by looking or examine our portfolio. Sometimes, they believe if we were good from our education, school, from where we're graduated. Even for me, those doesn't always prove that they good enough. But yeah, why not?
I think it's a great idea, I'd love to take some courses, even I know, I could learn by myself. There are so many great tutorials out there, over the internet, from books. You can learn from everywhere. But you've got my point, right? And another point, the thing is, "your will" to study and learning more about it that matters, last but not least, I think it will be cool if I can have a certificate of graduation from design school/institute, with a very outstanding scores, :D

Talking too much, eh? :p Here the pics, btw...

Anyway,, I also designing for my friend's musical drama's projects. Which it soon will be new "additional student activity" program in our university. They asked me to design it's logo. I'm not done with that yet, but two days ago, my friend asked me to make open recruitment poster. The idea is simple but eye-catching. My first idea was far from this. Not like this, at all, but, finally I came up with this. Is this enough?

Well, that's it. I still have many more pics that its color already edited. Well, save it for next time. Enough for today. I'll be back doing my essay. Deadline is tomorrow. Gosh!! Umm, bcoz of my busyness, I missed some new movies. But tomorrow, I'm going to watch MegaMind and Social Network. Hopefully we could make it.  See ya!! :)

Buenas noches!

P.S. I Skipped today's class. Not because I want to but bcoz of the damn rain!!! I simply H.A.T.E. rain! BTW, did you notice something new in here? Well yeah, It's my new "Foursquare Badges List" tab. I finally managed to learn how to coding it, umm.. I still copied the main codes from tony felice's blog tho. Cool isn't it? :D
