The Wonderful World of PDF

As a child, I loved spending countless hours in the bookstore. When I was living in the States, my playground of choice was the neighborhood library. However, now that I am grown up, I don't have the luxury of spending time in those places anymore. In fact, I barely have time to read :-( Right now, the only stuff I end up reading are journal articles and ebooks on my handy-dandy E63.It helps a lot that pdf files are readily available and easily downloaded into my phone so I can read them whenever I am in transit.

One thing, however, that frustrates me when I browse pdf files online, especially those that are for academic purposes, is that sometimes it is not specified if it is a full article or if it's just an abstract. It would help if there were thumbnails and previews that would allow me to check the files, such as the newagepdfsearch, without downloading first, that way I don't use up the precious little space left in my trusty lappy.

Also, as a teacher, I try to save my files in pdf so that I can be more confident in uploading and sharing notes and lectures with my students. This way I am assured, to some degree, that whatever I send is not as easily changed as compared to in a simple document file. to continue reading...

What's in the Rainbow's End?

Sometimes I wish I could still believe in the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That will definitely solve a lot of my money woes and let me have the power to purchase whatever I want, whenever I want :-) I don't really need much, but I would love having the option of not having to be tied down to a job to earn a living. Imagine, if  I could spot gold at the end of a rainbow were real, given the price of gold in today's market, I could sure solve not just my problems, but even other people who matter to me.

What's also great about having a pot of gold at my disposal is the fact that gold prices continue to go up, no matter how bad a market can be. Even if gold price fluctuates now and then, it still is a worthwhile investment. This is why, I think, many people invest in gold buillon and bars.

So, do you wanna join me in finding a gold spot at the end of the rainbow??? Hahaha! If only these were real!!! For now, I will settle for investing in gold jewelry! Speaking of which, maybe this would be a great gift for my latest goddaughter, what do you think??? to continue reading...

Eclipse Opens Today!!!!

Though I am not a big Twilight Fan, I can't help but get into the whole Twilight Fever whenever it comes up. Last night I got to catch an advanced screening of the latest installment of the series, Eclipse. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it a lot :-) There were a lot of cheesy, funny, and kilig moments that any viewer would enjoy, particularly the female audiences :-)

Two of my favorite lines: (without spoiling anything!)
"You have to admit, I'm hotter than you!" Jacob to Edward
"Jacob....stay!" Bella to Jacob

cute huh? ;-) to continue reading...
