Gingerbread Man time!

I'm busy with finals now, my last final is going to be tomorrow so I should be studying now!!
But I neeeeeed to share this with all of you.

This week was very stressful for me and to combat this, my boyfriend took me to Panera Bread for their Gingerbread Man and their yummy bread bowl soup! But hurry and get their Gingerbread Man because they only sell them until 12/24 and they only sell a few of those each day. If they're no longer on display, that means they're all sold out. :(
I urge you to try those and their super yummy sandwiches.

Here's their bread bowl soup! YUM.

So which part do of the Gingerbread Man do you like to eat first?
There's a psychology to it apparently. Check out this article from the NY Daily News.

My boyfriend and I start with the hands! :D

QWOP-The hardest game ever

According to this video, QWOP is the hardest game ever! I agree with him. This guy has funny commentary along with this game.

So I decided to try it out myself. I used the technique from the video up there to use only Q and W. I managed to get through 100 meters but I moved 0.1 the entire way. Sometimes I got lucky and got to move 0.2 here and there but, I didn't want to kill the poor guy.

Apparently at 50.0 meters, you get an obstacle. I dragged the thing the entire way, I'm sure I hurt him the entire way considering where that thing is pointing haha.

Here is when I'm almost at the finish line.

Here is when it gets funny. A sign comes up telling me to "jump," but I am not about to kill the poor guy dragging the obstacle on his leg so I take a risk...

Ignoring that "jump" sign, I continue to use my technique and inch forward.

So now I'm the "National Hero" because I win the race haha.
I guess being steady, slow, and full of perseverance goes a long way!

This game is hard I have to say.
I felt like I wasted my time, but I wanted to reach 100 meters so I could share it with you.
Apparently there will be an iPhone app soon.
I assure you I won't be getting this game because it's such a waste of time!

Try playing this game and see for yourself.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this game.
Play QWOP!

NYC Metrocard 4

Because I love the cute Target dog (Spot) so much, I decided to have him on my metrocard this month.

I tried the best I can to draw him. Maybe you can draw him much better than me.
It was hard for me because I had such little space to draw.

I'd like all you artistic readers out there to try to draw Spot.
Show me your depiction of him!

Speed Camera Lottery

Life is short, and I'd like to pay my respect to these people who continuously strive to change for the better.

Here's a guy who wants to combat speedy drivers and Volks Wagen made it possible for him.
For the ones that go over the speed limit, they will get a ticket and that money will go into the lottery. The law-abiding citizens will get to be in the lottery for a chance to win that money.

Let me cut all the talking and see for yourself what a great idea this is!

Stop your flipping leg shaking!

See how comfortable those Corgis are? You wouldn't want to wake them now, would you?

The other day I was sitting on a really long bench enjoying my food with my boyfriend. Two boys sit down on the bench and one of them starts shaking their flipping leg! For those of you out there who enjoy doing this please stop! It's rather annoying to others sitting on the bench. Even if you're not sitting on a bench your neighbors can still feel the vibration through the floor. All I want is to sit, relax, and enjoy my food.

My mom told me when I was young that I shouldn't shake my legs because my fortune will be shaken away from me. I'm not a superstitious person but if you are then by all means please stop your flipping leg shaking! I'm glad she taught me to not shake my legs because I know how distracting it is to others.

Have any of you experienced this?

Happy Halloween!!! 2010

Happy Halloween to you all!!
What will you be doing today? Did you dress up?
I love getting free candy during this time.

I celebrated Halloween yesterday at Luna Park, Coney Island.

They had a Nights of Horror event and I had lots of fun.

I spent a total of 4hours at the park and my friends and I went on every single ride there.
The longest line there was for the Haunted Maze but there was only 1way you could walk. There were many workers dressed in very bloody costumes trying to scaring visitors and were very successful most of the time. They would chase people around or just randomly stand next to that when they turned to look they'd be scared.

Enjoy your Halloween!! :)

NYC Metrocard 3

This month I decided to draw a little birdy. The bird reminds me of twitter haha!
So I decided to draw a bird on my Metrocard so I can remind myself to work hard in school and I'll have plenty of free time after I'm done.

After weeks of stress and hard work, I finally have a free weekend to rest once again. No more midterms to worry about but now I must study hard and be ready for the finals.

If you haven't yet followed me on twitter, what are you waiting for? Click the poor fat birdy on your right and follow me already! If not, he will cry! :(

Also my favorite jewelry designer DSK steph is doing a LV bag give away. Find out how to win on her blog and while you're there check out her beautiful pieces.
Her jewelry is awesome and I wear the necklace my boyfriend got me all the time! I'd feel empty without it!

Any suggestions as to what I should draw on my Metrocard next month?

Stress No More College Students!!!

It's the middle of the semester, exams are bombarding you and you're trying to do everything as fast as possible. This is the time when college students say goodbye to sleep and you pull all nighters. Admit it, you love procrastinating but work builds up fast. Next thing you know, you have loads of work waiting for you stacked on your desk and readings for classes stacked up to the ceiling.

What can you do to prevent this?

1. The syllabus is our friend. There's a reason why the professor gives us a syllabus, it's to keep us posted on what we will be learning, reading, and homeworks that are due. It can be to our advantage to do readings ahead when you have free time instead of going out with friends or sleeping or just simply slacking off. Plan your time wisely and do as much work as you can early before they build up.

2. Make a list of your priorities. What is going to be due first? Make a list of the things that are going to be due if there are many things to be done. Most of us aren't taking just one course a semester, we're juggling four or more at a time. Write everything in a planner and get in the habit of looking at it everyday.

3. Is facebook, twitter, AIM or Skype distracting you from your work? Instead of immediately typing your essay on your computer why don't you get away from it and hand write it? Hand writing a paper is good because you can pick up on mistakes better than you can on the screen. Type your paper up afterwards and as you read and type, you're self-editing. You'll have to read it to yourself and often you'll catch mistakes you've made on the draft.

Say goodbye to loads of work and have more time to procrastinate and enjoy the weather. You don't have to fall behind classes anymore. Remember to get things done first, procrastinate after. You'll have all the time in the world to do whatever you want after the work is done.

What do you do to stay ahead in your classes? Were these tips helpful to you?

DIY Lucky Star Tutorial

This is the moment we've all been waiting for!! It's the origami star tutorial! Hope its helpful to you because it has detailed pictures and steps to go about making your very own lucky star.

First, find a long about strip of paper about the long side of a loose-leaf paper (you can cut a strip from a loose-leaf or use scrap paper).
This picture just shows you both sides of the origami paper (a side with pictures and a blank side).

You want to make a loop on one end just like a ribbon. Make sure that the side with pictures is on the bottom!

Here's a close-up of the ribbon.

Now, you want to keep a finger down to hold the paper steady.

Fold the tip in the loop to make a knot.

Use a finger to hold it down.

While holding the tip down, use your other hand and pull the long strip of paper in the direction of the arrow.

After you get a close enough knot, press it down and make a crease.
This is side 1.

Here is side 2.

Now you want to fold in the little piece of paper sticking out.

Flip the paper back over and this is how it's going to look like.

The line I drew on the tail is where you need to fold.

This is how it should look when you fold it in.

You continue folding it that way, while matching the corners.

Keep folding the paper until you reach a spot that you can't fold anymore.

Now, hold down the star and slip the left over tail into the folds.

Here is the final "fattening" process of the star.
Using your fingers, push each flat side of the star in to puff the star up.

After you puff up all the sides, you should have your very own lucky star!

If you have questions please leave your comments below.
Enjoy your lucky star and share it with your friends and family!! =]
