If you need a laugh

I made this wix website a few years back for a computers class, and here it is

If you want to skip to the funny parts, check out the “Meet the Team”, “License” pages and the bottom of the “About” page 😉

**note: I am Chinese and there are some potentially “racist” stuff there about Chinese names and stereotypes, but I’m just making light of the stereotypes against Chinese and asians

PicMonkey Alternatives

I used to use picmonkey for everything but now, unfortunately, they changed it so that you need a membership in order to download your edits 😦

So here are some equally great alternatives to use instead!

(click on the images to go to the sites)

Pixlr

There’s a pixlr express and a pixlr editor option
Pixlr Express is more of a basic editing thing, kind of like VSCO, where you can add filters, etc.
Pixlr Editor is more of an advanced editing program, very similar to Photoshop, I’ve found, but if you were to make more basic edits like you would in Picmonkey, it might take longer because of the complicated tools.

Canva

I really like using Canva for design, and creating more “word-heavy” pictures, rather than editing/filtering photos.

I know a lot of people use picmonkey for word art, youtube thumbnails, facebook covers etc. and Canva is really good for that 🙂

Fotor

So far, I think I’ll be using Fotor the most, because the layout of the actual website is a good mix between Canva and Picmonkey. Also, there’s a lot of really cool fonts and templates that you can use.


Comment if you know any good online editors!!

Another one I use (that’s currently down right now), is lunapic, which I use for making transparent photos, and sometimesss editing

PSA: READ HARRY POTTER

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: READ HARRY POTTER WHILE YOU’RE YOUNG

So I was always one of those stubborn kids who thought “oh harry potter probably is over hyped, I won’t read it”

I now regret it.

The thing is, I went to the Harry Potter Land in Universal Studios a few years back before I read Harry Potter and I experienced all the wonders….. without knowing a single thing about the book

do you feel my regret (if you’ve read harry potter, you know)

All I can do now is rack my brains for glimpses of hogsmeade and diagon alley in my memories 😦

I just finished the last book in the series and I’m sad and some deaths I can’t get over

And my friends that have read it, did so when they were like 7 or something, sooo I’ve missed the Harry Potter bandwagon :/

Anyways, guess who’s spending hours pouring through Harry Potter memes and theories and basically everything related?

Yellow Aesthetic

I’ve been really liking the color yellow lately so here are some aesthetic yellow pictures (stolen off tumblr) 🙂

Generally, I have two moods- “life is awesome, i love life” and “life sucks why am i here”

yellow is usually from the “life is awesome part” because its such a happy color :))

anyways, sorry for not posting much

UrbanEars Platten 2 Review

Image result for urbanears plattan 2 snow blue

I got these headphones (in Snow Blue) about a week and a half ago as a birthday present from my family. It costs approx. $53 CAD on Amazon when I got it (the price of it is subject to change) and on the Urbanears website, it costs $69 CAD ($49 USD). I was looking for headphones/earphones in this post, and I decided on getting these Urbanears Platten 2 headphones. I was looking for a number of things, and here’s how this pair of headphones ranked in my opinion:

  1. Sound Quality
    I was looking something that made the bass sound great, since I love hearing the bass in most of the songs. These headphones did not disappoint at all. The bass sounds amazing, however, it’s actually a little overpowering. This can be easily fixed through sound settings on your phone/computer. I’m not an expert in sound quality, but these headphones make listening to all the songs I listen to a good experience (pop songs, chillstep, violin covers, electric music).
  2. Stays in your ear (even when running)
    Obviously, this is for earphones, but these headphones don’t fall off easily when I exercise either, so they’re great for going on runs. The only downside is, like most other headphones, they’re slightly noise cancelling (not fully noise cancelling like beats) but be careful – it can be dangerous when you’re outside and cannot hear your surroundings.
    *These headphones are on-ear headphones, which mean they do not cover your ear entirely*
    In addition, these headphones can get a little tight after wearing them for about half an hour. You can make them a little looser by holding the top of the headphones and bending it outwards.
  3. Has a microphone
    This pair of headphones comes with a microphone and a single button (not shown in the picture, but pressing the button once will pause the song, pressing it twice will skip the song [only works on phones]). However, this microphone is not loud at all, and when I join Discord calls, my voice is barely audible to the other people in the call.
  4. Good quality
    As mentioned earlier, I have only had these earphones for about a week and a half and cannot say for certain they will last for a few years. However, the material feels like good quality material. An amazing upside to this product is that the wire is made of string, so the ends of each side of the wire will not break easily.

Other Comments:

  • These headphones have a really cool feature where the wire can be plugged in either the right or left ear, so the wire won’t be going across your face when in use. This means there will always be one side that isn’t plugged in, meaning another pair of earphones/headphones can be plugged into that side so you and your friends can all listen to music from one device without sharing earphones! Honestly, it is quite useless and I have never used it, but it still is a cool feature.
  • These headphones can be very compact – easy to travel with because of the little amount of space it takes up.

  • The top of the headphones is made of fabric, making it super comfortable on the head.
  • Both earpads can be slid up and down to match your headsize and make it super comfortable.
  • The overall design of it is very plain and simple, which I love. The brand name is not plastered all over the design.
  • Approx. $50 for these headphones were such an amazing deal, and in my opinion, it is definitely worth the money.
  • These headphones come in 12 different colours. There wasn’t a picture I could find that included all 12 colours. Here’s the link to the website where you can look through all the colours though.
  • It came with a poster and a sticker. Didn’t use either of those 2 things for anything, but it was pretty cool

Overall, I would definitely recommend these headphones to anyone who isn’t an extreme critic when it comes to sound quality. They’re convenient, comfortable and pretty good for most genres of music except classical.

How to extend your knowledge and improve your writing drastically without really trying 

Read.

I learned this the hard way

I used to be an avid reader, one of those students that frantically tried to read as much as they could before the bell rang, or snuck books under my desk and read during boring lessons.

Unfortunately, I discovered Netflix and YouTube and that was the end 😂😂

So tip of the day: read more

Even if it’s just a book that you read a little bit of in the span of 6 months or if you read book after book, without fail, just read, and I promise it’ll help you extend your knowledge and your writing skills drastically

When you read, you subconsciously accumulate knowledge and learn new words which really helps and which is why I wish I read more, and I’m currently trying to read more

If you have any book suggestions maybe we could all help eachother out in the comments?

The only non-mainstream book that I’ve really enjoyed is “Splintered” by A.G. Howard, great for Alice in Wonderland fans 🙂 

Also Flowers for Algernon is a really great book that opens your perspectives- I wanted to do it for my lit circles in school but they didn’t have enough books 😩

Summer Recap

This summer I was so unproductive and I barely did anything or go on any trips. I did go out a few times with friends and that was fun. I also got my hair cut SO SHORT COMPARED TO HOW LONG IT WAS BEFORE. My hair used to go down to my top of my butt and now it’s almost half the length. I can’t hide in my hair anymore :\

Also, I got the phone that I was talking about in my other post. I got a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and I can barely find any cases for it so I have to look online lolzzz.

I took a few pictures of this little fair place I went with my friends and of other random things. Also I’m really excited for Christmas (only 113 days away!) so you’ll see a few Christmas pictures I took.
