PSA to non-kpop fans

just because you’ve never heard of them and they don’t sing in a language you understand, doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve awards or that they somehow cheated in the voting  (◡ ‿ ◡ ✿)

just because you don’t like the music doesn’t mean they don’t have a big enough fanbase to win awards outside of their country  (◡ ‿ ◡ ✿)


having trouble writing?

update: the link should work now! im very sorry abt this haha h

I’m not sure what most you guys write with these days, if the majority of you are still chugging along with good ol’ Microsoft Word or whatever, but let me introduce you to this beauty:

Write! (look at this snazzy sleek website): 

This is my go to program. It’s light and doesn’t have a five minute start up like Word (or maybe my laptop’s just really clunky and old) and it has these features that make the entire story-building ordeal easier. 

Seriously, ever since I started using this I’ve been just spewing shit out.

It has both a free and a pro version. The free version is beautiful and efficient just on its own and is the one I’ve been using the longest, but if you want to have your work on all your devices, have a night theme for all-nighters or just have some stylish documents, the pro version is $5 per month. If you can, please support them!

The layout is simple and clutter free, nothing overwhelming. The navigation has an option to give you a visual look on what you’re scrolling through rather than the normal scroll bar, which has saved my eyes from squinting every five minutes.

Its got a standard formatting options but not so many that you feel overwhelmed. Simplicity matters! It also has a handy productivity counter which tracks word/character count, pages, reading time, etc.

There are three window options: compact, standard (size-adjustable) and full screen. I always use full screen but when I’m multitasking or want watch youtube videos, the window becomes smaller without cramping your work space since it doesn’t have a toolbar.

It’s pretty hard to find this program (at least it was for me haha) cause of its name. Since this is my favourite writing program so I’m going to spread the word and share it, since it deserves more recognition B^)

Company Sponsored free concert.

My company sponsors a free concert for Hispanic Heritage Month with tickets being free to the public. My girlfriend being Colombian wanted to go so we went to the concert website to try to get tickets.

We found out that they could not be obtained online but instead they were available at several locations that were also sponsors of the event. One of those locations was a local MetroPCS store which was close to me.

Once we got there we waited patiently for one of the employees to finish helping a customer. Once it was our turn we asked about the free tickets to the concert. The lady working the counter told us that the tickets were only reserved for customers so I needed to be a current customer or buy something in the store. I told her that according to the events these were free to the public but she said it was their policy that the tickets could only be obtained if we each bought something.

This morning when I got to work I found the email of the marketing manager in charge of the event for my company and explained my experience and asked where else I could obtain tickets. He got back to me within minutes and asked me further details of the experience. This afternoon he came to see me and brought me 4 tickets and said that what they were doing was unacceptable so they were removed from being a future sponsor and all tickets had been repossessed and distributed to sponsors that were being honest and giving them to the public that wanted the tickets.
