Its been a bit busy so…

Yay..to last minute posts!

I have half of post ready that was supposed to go up today. I’m not too confident I’ll be able to wrap it up. Between now three days behind on NaNoWriMo and the deadline just over a week left, I’ve been powering most of my energy for it. And well, there’s been editing duties to take care of the last few nights, which I totally love doing.

With that said, I feel like I’ve been slacking off a little, even if I really am not. So here’s a few things I watched that have helped me de-stress a little.

Team Edge is so awesome! I usually have a lot of fun watching their challenges.

I’m not quite the fan of VR just yet but Until Dawn: Rush of Blood looks intense and watching people get scared is in general pretty funny. Maybe my humor is a little warped.

And finally..for some shameless self promotion, kinda. When I’m not writing or editing, this is what I’m working on…trying out new recording software for mobile games.

Its short and not super interesting, I guess. But I  needed a pass for today. Hope you enjoyed the vids! 🙂

Normal posts should come back tomorrow! Sorry again.

A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Smile

Sue at A Word in Your Ear has landed on a very happy word for this week’s challenge, SMILE! If you’re interesting in joining this fun challenge or see some other beautiful entries, please head over HERE! Its probably my most favorite thing to do.  Although in the process of searching up pictures in all my 20GB of photos, I learned that sometimes I have the most weirdest smiles. Although it would be boring if I only featured myself.  So here we go…some of the best smiles are to see them on the faces in their normal spontaneous moments that I captured.

My last dog, a fluffy Chow Chow!

My old boy here back in 2009.  Ever since he was a little puppy, he’s always been my best friend and always one to greet me with his big smile.  Doesn’t looking at him just make you want to smile? Man, don’t I miss seeing that!

Disneyland Hong Kong with Chip n Dale

Disneyland is a place of wonder and fantasy.  Can you tell I was totally ecstatic to have my picture with Chip ‘n Dale? I love these guys.  I think they felt it because they both gave me a huge kiss on my cheek soon after this picture was taken! Fun times! 🙂

Kids playing in the backyard

This was a totally spontaneous shot that even I had forgotten about.  Kids playing in the backyard during a birthday party.  Doesn’t her smile just warm your heart? This little girl is not related to me but is one of my boyfriend’s friends’ little girl.  The innocent smiles of children are always something that makes us happy.  We wish for their smiles to stay that way with pure joy and with nothing to ever have to worry about.

Relaxing next to rapids

This is a completely natural shot.  I didn’t even know it was taken till I got back home and checked the pictures.  Water is what calms and destresses me. This place in Rawdon, Quebec is a little part of the rapids right next Dorwin Falls.  Once I sit here, I never want to leave because this gives one of the most natural and relaxed smiles I can possibly give off.

Silly poses

I think by now you’ve realized my best friends are some of the best joys in my life. These silly things hopefully will bring out as much of a smile to me as it does for you! Sometimes, we don’t have to be too serious and just let ourselves have fun, right? RIGHT! 🙂

Christmas Marathon: Garfield’s Christmas Special (1987)

garfield christmasAs much as I love Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, I HAVE TO watch Garfield’s Christmas Special every year for the holidays.  This wasn’t too long though so I ended up watching Garfield’s Thanksgiving as well.  My DVD was a Garfield Holidays Collection. Who can have enough of the lasagna loving orange cat?

GARFIELD’S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (1987)

This is only 20 minutes long TV movie originally.  The plot is pretty basic to not ruin it for people who haven’t seen this.  Jon takes Garfield and Odie to his home to spend Christmas with his family on the farm.  Quoting Garfield, “Christmas is not about the giving, its not about the getting, its about the loving.”

Honestly, I have no idea what makes me like this so much.  I have no idea ever why I like Garfield ever, especially now that I’m in my mid 20s.  Jon is hilarious with his helplessness with Garfield and how he just sometimes does the silliest things.  Odie is the ever cute companion and friend to Garfield and is the absolute sign of unconditional love.  Garfield is always so cunning but then things never really go his way.  In the Christmas special, what I like a lot is Jon’s Grandma.  Whenever animations put in a Grandma with that type of personality something between rowdy and fun mixed with sentimental and sweet always makes me happy.  An example being Grandma Puckett from Hoodwinked.

There really isn’t much to say about this one.  Garfield TV movies are always quick and to the point .  They captured spending time with family doing their own traditions (no matter how old you are) is always times to treasure.  It touches my heart to see that.

To people who actually still watch TV, I only have bunny ears so I don’t catch much anymore.  Do they still air this during the Christmas holidays?

I know this is more ancient compared to my previous selections, do you still watch it? Do we have any Garfield fans out there?
