Happy New Year! And now what?…

580b57fcd9996e24bc43c40dHappy new year my lovely readers! 😀

I hope you had a great 2017, and even if it was bad, I’m sure you still can find good in it, lessons you learned that helped you grow up. In everything bad that happens, there’s definitely something good to come out of it, even if we don’t see it right away. So stay positive!

Instead of publishing the review of the Gear VR (which was highly requested, and is delayed because I found out I didn’t try everything and I wasn’t happy about the article), or my TOP 5 Apps to use (which is also mostly ready), I thought it’d be better to start off 2018 looking at what I learned from 2017, and my plans (the ones I can actually think of right now) for 2018.

I did it!!!

Oh yeah, who’s the geek??? I am!!! Nerd smile

I had to use 3 different programs, solve 7 occurring issues, spend 3 and a half hours staring at the screen and kill my old Nokia 5800 about 15 times for me to be able to unlock it (I accidently activated the SIM lock option under settings, forgot the pass code and it wouldn’t reset to factory setting >_<) and be able to give it to my brother and get my SIM card back!!!

Oh, dear God, thank you!

More detailed article coming sometime today or tomorrow, and yes, it can be easy but it also can be as hard as it was for me, especially when you’re running Windows 8, using advanced programs to unlock it or flash it and your phone won’t cooperate with you. Things can get very tricky.

But I did it!!! Open-mouthed smile 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a celebration to do Note.

What has been going on lately (Senior year mainly)…

I don’t even know how I’m supposed to start this blog post.

I must start, though, by apologizing to all of you guys for not blogging nor updating my blog here. I’ve been planning on doing so for the past months, once my senior year ended, but I guess now I’m stuck in a circle and it would never end…

Anyways, if you want to know the details, click on the more link below, if you don’t, well, still, thank you for reading this far. In the next many paragraphs I’m going to go through everything that’s happened and what’s going to happen according to the previous events, of course mainly in my personal/educational life. But there will be tech related stuff too Smile.

Me and books lately; becoming a reading addict.

Hello guys and girls!!

   I hope you’re enjoying Ramadan and making the most of it (if you’re a Muslim of course, if you’re not, Ramadan is our fasting month :)).

   If you’ve noticed, since Ramadan started, I’ve been away most of the time. I’m trying to make the most out of this month. However, since I’m not a TV person, I hate current TV series (Except for Burn Notice and catching up on Hawaii Five-0) and I’ve been trying to stay away from useless music (I know, I’ve been listening to music but the explanation is coming…).

    So for fun, I’ve decided to read books that interest me. I made a research for what kind of books I should be reading to use what’s left of my spare time. In addition to my love for everything supernatural, paranormal, fantasy and Sci-Fi, I’ve found a new interest, young adult.

     With that being said, I’m referring to YA (an abbreviation to Young Adult genre, in case you were wondering what it means.) that is also a paranormal or fantasy, containing ghosts, vampires, souls or/and my latest crush, Revenants. I’ve been known to my friends that I hate romance, but some of it doesn’t hurt as long as it’s not between two humans… just a point of view.

     Anyways, I’m informing you because you might notice that my Tumblr blog has been turning into a review blog for books I read. I don’t know if I’m going to end up changing it into a book blog or something, but for now, with seniors ahead of me, I’m leaving as it is. I’ll share random things I like which I think are worth giving a look too.

     Just as a note, most of the books I’m reading or I read are in ePub formats (eBooks) the rest are audiobooks. Why is that you ask? I can happily tell you that it’s not because I don’t like real books but because the new books and in the language I’m reading (English) aren’t available in my city!! So, most of the books I read are either gifted to me by my friends online or me getting them off torrents. I’ve been considering getting an eReader but guess what? It’s not available here either, I doubt if it’s even available in the country!! >_<”. If you’re in a place where B&N’s Nook Color or Kobo’s eReader Touch are sold and you want to help get one (I’ll send you the money of course) let me know :), you’ll be doing me a huge favor.

    Regarding the music I’ve been listening to, it’s from the books that I read. Basically each book has its playlist that inspired the author :).

That’s it!

     If you want to check my reads, reviews or add me, I’m at Goodreads all the time updating my progress and books with my phone.

Have a nice day/evening 🙂
