I was going to blog about this weeks ago (and this is the part where I put again another reason why I wasn’t able to do it) BUT a) DSL keeps going bonkers just in time when I was about to click the publish button and it would b) take 24 hours before it goes back to normal again and lastly c) This post would be full of photos from online stores and I didn’t want to use my crappy broadband internet stick to access the net cuz the photos would be pixelated/even more crap than crap (?).
Also, I tried to change this blog’s layout since last night but I haven’t found the perfect theme. 😞 I must’ve downloaded around 6 themes and modified them one way or another but in the end only one of them nearly satisfied me.. until I found this problem with displaying images in a post. A teeny margin/padding problem that I can’t seem to fix even with tinkering the theme’s CSS file.
Jesus, I just want a clean but stylish WordPress theme. Why is it so hard to find a decent website for it?? It’s not like I’m going to rip off the credits and pass it off as my own!! I wouldn’t do that. Grr.
Anyway, current wants! I’m out in the market (online, yeah in case you haven’t figured it out yet haha) looking for these stuff. Unfortunately I can only look but not buy or own any of these because
They don’t have it here
If they do, it’s probably expensive by a few hundred pesos or more
There was a day when all I did was look online for cardigans, laptop accessories and shoes. Not so much luck with the shoes.. especially when I try to look for a good pair at the malls here.
Originally I planned to write about this special event the day after I got home from the retreat, but things and other commitments with school and “life in general” started to pile up and I lost the time for it. Thankfully I had documented some of it already from my planner-slash-diary.
Now let’s see if I can document this retreat properly while listening to La Roux’s songs on repeat. It’s distracting but I can’t bring myself to lower the volume and/or hit the pause button on my iTunes so I can have a sound state of being and blog in peace hahaha.
Feb 3-4, 2011, I attended this retreat part of the three-part religious seminars we needed to attend throughout college. The retreat is the last one of the three. I didn’t even want to go to this event in the first place but of course I had to and I had no choice because it was a school requirement. The first one we paid for didn’t push through (fine, it was our fault) and we had to deal with a lot of complications. In the end we gave up and just paid again and rescheduled.
I was not looking forward to this retreat to be either of the following: life-changing, game-changing, path/destiny-changing (lol), fun, memorable, or exciting. I expected that we I would have to sit through hours and hours of listening to the speakers and play along with whatever they make us do in there.
