My choice.

So it’s summer. Mid-summer that is.

It is a two-month long break from school, but it does not mean that it is a break from life problems too.

Life has been throwing a lot of sh*t at me lately, but I have to deal with it with my head held high and a smile on my face. Yes people, I’ll shall deal with my problems with a smile on my face. How can that be possible if I am just a human, vulnerable to my ever-changing emotions. I thought summer break will be a time to be happy, stress-free, and alive, since you do not have to worry anything about school and all that comes with it.

So, one night, I was about to sleep when I tried to recollect my thoughts, and then it hit me that I can’t be happy if I choose not to be happy. (DUH!) πŸ˜› Silly as it seems, but yes, I have to choose happiness rather than focus on negative thoughts. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anxiety disorder or emotional problems, it’s just sometimes you have to face difficulties and you should be ready for it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is tiring, but you have to. All those frustrations, pains, problems, and tests come and go through your life every now and then. You cannot expect them to have a certain and definite schedule, they’ll just go in to your life and crush you as hell. But, it is up to you on how you’ll be able pick yourself up again and go on with your life. But if you choose to be happy, no matter how hard the situation is, you’ll manage to get through it. Problems will never break you, frustrations will never break your spirit, and pain will never break your heart. Surely, it will just leave a big or small dent, but trust it will never break you. πŸ™‚

So now, I focus more on reading books and blogging. (Don’t be surprised if I’ll be making a few book review every now and then) πŸ˜› I’ve been reading a lot of thriller/suspense books lately. It keeps me calm and steady. Plus, blogging is my usual time-killer. So rather than thinking of negative things, I have books to keep me calm and steady, and I have my blog to keep me occupied.

 

OH btw, you may have (not) noticed that I changed my domain form so-fabulous.info to sofabulous.info, a little booboo happened that’s why I have to buy a new domain. And now, I’m back to PR 0. I NEED to raise my PR. HEEEEELP! πŸ˜› Any suggestions? πŸ™‚ PLEASE? πŸ˜€

And another thing, I’m thinking of another giveaway, and I’m thinking of giving away make-up products. What do you think? πŸ˜› I’m open for suggestions. πŸ™‚ I’m looking for sponsors too! Please? πŸ˜€ (You can contact me at luvlygaljen06@yahoo.com)

The Avengers.

I guess I’m part of the majority (or minority) that is thrilled and excited to watch the movie entitled Β The Avengers, starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Jeremy Renner as Hawk Eye, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, and Chris Evans (who is the sole purpose why I watched the movie) as Captain America.

 

I must warn everyone of you that might want to watch the movie Thor (Starring Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston) to fully understand the whole movie and how or when the “problem” started. And, girls, I assure you the Chris Evans is as hot as he was in the movie Captain America. Haha! πŸ™‚ I must admit that his hotness it so consistent! πŸ˜›

 

Anyways, let’s move on the to the reel deal, but I must warn you that this post may contain spoilers. πŸ™‚

So, here the story goes…

Thor’s (adopted) brother, Loki, went to Earth (again) to steal a Cosmic Cube named tesseract that will help him “open the gates” of their world to our world. It will unleash an alien force to the Earth, threatening us, humans, to bow down to Loki and recognize him as our god. Loki made a small army which includes Erik Selvig, an astro-physicist, and Hawk Eye. Now, Nick Fury, the head of the government organization named S.H.I.E.L.D. (played by Samuel L. Jackson), sought the help of Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Bruce Banner/Hulk to stop Loki from his plans. On the course of their seige to Loki, Thor came in to the scene and tried to take Loki back to their home. But Iron Man and Captain America tried to stop Thor because Loki stole tesseract and they need to get it back from Loki.

 

OK, I’ll stop from here. You NEED to watch the movie. This is one of the best movie I’ve ever watched for the year 2012. I hope they’ll make a sequel. They may include Hydra (a villain from Captain America) as one their villains, or maybe they can include Green Lantern as one of the heroes. Haha. Me and little twisted ideas.

 

OVER-ALL RATING: 10 OUT 10

The story is not really complicated or misleading (but I strongly suggest that you watch first the movie Thor). There is a hint of humor in the movie (so it’s not an Β “all action movie”). How about the cast? POWERHOUSE CAST! They’re REALLY good, no, excellent actors. (Chris Evans is hot {for the nth time} and Scarlett Johansson is really beautiful. Β I mean “close-to-perfection” beautiful). πŸ™‚

 

I hope you can find time to watch this movie too. πŸ™‚

So what was the last movie that you watched? Did you liked it? Why? How would you rate it? πŸ™‚

Plug in. Plug out.

School’s out. Perfect weather. Tons of (non-academic) books to read. THIS IS THE LIFE! I don’t have to “budget” my time or to worry about finishing an assignment or memorizing/reading something.

I finally confirmed that I’m officially a GRADUATING STUDENT! πŸ™‚ And, I’m currently enjoying the perks of it such as early vacation, extra time to relax, extra time to pamper myself, and to surf the internet almost all day. I can’t really “relax” and/or pamper myself during the school days, and now is the perfect time for me to do that! πŸ™‚

 

Anyhow, due to my internet-wandering, I got a chance to make a an account in Flavors.me and About.me, so if you happen to have an account on those sites, please add/follow my account. (Oh, I ALWAYS follow back. As in, ALWAYS!). πŸ™‚

So here they are:

1. Jen @ Flavors.me:Β http://flavors.me/iamjen

2. Jen @ About.me:Β http://about.me/jenine

There you go! πŸ™‚

 

Oh, does any of you want some of these, by any chance?

(Sorry for the not-so-good photos, I just took it with the built-in camera on my phone. :P)

Here are the photos of SOME of the prizes. (Yes people, that’s not yet “everything”) πŸ˜› And yes, those are some make-up, earrings, bracelets. πŸ˜›

Anyhow, I remembered months ago that I was about to host a giveaway, but I don’t have a budget for it. Now, since I’m deeply ecstatic, I’m sharing some of my blessings.

You see, I was shopping for my graduation clothes, then, I suddenly thought of the giveaway that I was about to give last year. So there, I shopped a little for the prizes. πŸ˜› Just tell me if you like some of it, then, I’ll continue the mini giveaway. Since this is my first time to host a giveaway, I’ll keep it downsized. Maybe a major giveaway will follow after this. I’ll try to work on it. πŸ™‚

 

So there, to giveaway or not to giveaway? πŸ˜›
