Today I discovered a tiny crack in it :(
I was terribly sad and upset. I mean its been less than 2 months since I have had it, and have been keeping it very very carefully. It was a birthday gift from Enn, and that made me extra sad.
He got it from Staples, so I was not sure if I was suppose to contact Staples or Amazon to complain about it.
I was prepared to beg-request-argue for a replacement ...so I went ahead and called Amazon, and they said they will replace it. ..... Like that..!!!!!!
I am absolutely amazed and impressed with their service. Hopefully soon enough I will get my new Kindle and all I have to do is put the older in the same box the new one cam in and ship it off. Amazon will also pay for the shipment.
So that was my happy ending story, also at Gloria's blog I read this lovely story of this little dogie that made me feel warm and fuzzy.
The semester is done. I cannot believe its over.
I had a great time and I got to learn so much. If anything, I am definitely more patient than what I started with.
Also I finally know how to draw gesture drawings. Going so loose and crazy definitely put me in pain, but finally I figured it out. Which is a BIG Achievement.
We were required to have a object of personal importance and through out the semester we had to develop a portfolio drawing this object using different techniques.
My object was this mug ,I made in my Pottery class.
So I have been looking at my blog header and have been wondering, "WHAT WAS I THINKING..??"
I mean some of the words don't really make sense any more.
Today for the first time ever...I carved pumpkins....
I carved a couple of them. It was the part of today's art class. I had so much fun.
Here is a scene from the class the when we entered. Before all the students attacked the pumpkins.
And this is what I made...its unibrowed spongebob :)
Glued some pretty paper.
I realized I am some years older and many times wiser than my current profile picture, so it should reflect an "updated me" ...
I am kind of blogging about it, b'coz if you see another picture with my name on it, its actually me and not an impostor :)
yup.... its free....
Last year I had taken a course from Tam and she is a wonderfulll teacher.I luv her art and her sense of humor and absolutely luv her compassionate teaching style.
For more details please watch her video.
See you there.
Our beloved cell phone HTC Incredible...no let me rephrase, my husband's beloved cell phone HTC Incredible got a wash in washer...!! (Mine is safe with me)
You see, I had a HEAP of laundry, the HEAP has been accumulating since more than three weeks (that's right, I have a more than three weeks supply of you-know-what!) and I was kind of over whelmed. So I was picking clothes left-right and center and just dumping them in washer, and I am not the one who separates whites, delicates, work clothes or Check Pockets..!!!
The drama started when Enn asked me abut his so n so pair of shorts which had cell-phone in the pocket.And I immediately recalled stuffing them in the washer what followed was me screaming, crying, apologizing, poor Enn did not really got a chance to express his emotions.
Google came in handy, and apparently there are a lot of people out there who wash their phones. So this is what I learned/ we did:
- When phone gets a water wash, DO NOT SWITCH IT ON & Immediately removed the battery,Sim , memory card.
- A good tool to completely open phone is that tiny screw driver used to tight eye-glasses.Only open parts that you can put back together(You don't want to solve a circuit jigsaw puzzle.
- Since we had completely opened it, we kept it under a lamp for around 12-15 hours. Its also suggested to put it in a bag of rice, but we were afraid that it might get inside the phone.
- After 12-15 of hrs lamp treatment, I wrapped it in kitchen towel and put it in a bag of rice for another 12-15 hrs.
So far the phone is working alright, but I will not be too excited about it. I am sure there will be some impact on its performance, let's see.
Did I mention the most important lesson - to check pockets before u wash clothes.
For as long as I can remember... I wanted to take a drawing class. A proper art school drawing class...and I am finally getting to do it.
Its crazy ...amazing ...and fantastic.
I say crazy b'coz...I work full time ...then this class...and then I have loads and loads of home work to do....not to mention house/cleaning/cooking/laundry etc.
I luv rushing to the class after so many years of education I had forgotten that feeling. I also like having homework tension, and trying to delay it till last moment and then pulling an almost all niter just to finish my work, and for a change the work I am doing...I am absolutely loving it. I sit in the studio/class room (which by the way is open till mid night...) for hours and hours and just don;t realize it. Time just flies. This is indeed a dream come true for me. My art teacher is fabulous,and the students in the class are really enthusiastic.
I really look forward to this journey and hope to enjoy it to the fullest.
But these short films from StoryCorps made me cry like a baby, specially the "Danny and Annie"
And then I went ahead on the StoryCorp Website to listen to more stories, and they all are beautiful.
All it take is a heart felt conversation.
This looks like a Slumber Party... The colors are really bright and dark....something I did not intended. Reminds me of good old days when me and my two best friends would spend nights talking and giggling and dreaming and wondering about the future...who knew it would come so soon...
This is more of a hint to Enn.... :)
"Never been kissed..."
oomph to the rather boring process. Having said, that I luuv washing dishes. (i keep saying that and hope someday it will come true.)
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
You’re not as fat as you imagine.
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Sometimes you're ahead, Sometimes You're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.
Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
W ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..
Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.
Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.
Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.
But trust me on the sunscreen…
I returned it, and got myself other goodies.
The journal is really pretty and thick
The pencils are super cute and I luuuv using 0.7mm pencils. The sound they make on paper makes my heart and hand sing. Though these have these annoying foamy grip, which I will get rid of.
And the set of pens is fabulous...!!!!! they are 52 of them!! in a tin case...glittery...colored...neon...all of them...so much inspiration for my penmanship...
I tested all these pens - and what better way than writing a nice wod with each of 'em.
The verdict : all 52 work
And finally some apple green aewsome -ness...
No points for guessing I am a petite female and have to fold my jeans if I don't get a chance to alter it.
