Every time I am updating my blogs, I never forget to have my dictionary with me for sometimes I am not familiar with the words I am using, I automatically check of the meaning. I sometimes use word/words that I read before and thought of using it to give some variety to my article. This is also to make sure I am using the word/s correctly. Yes, I promised to use only simple English words, however, sometimes I feel like using other terms to make it sound nice. It is also good to use other words for it widens my vocabulary. I used to be a bookworm, but when this new technology surfaces, I seldom open or read books. My bad. 🙁
When I saw an application of Merriam-Webster Dictionary, I downloaded it without second thought. It really helps me a lot especially when I am out and feel like writing while waiting for someone, I can search for the meaning of the word/s using my phone or tablet. I am really glad that this app is invented. My niece saw me searching for the meaning of the word she asked me once and thought of downloading it to her phone. Instead of bringing the heavy two volume dictionary that we have, it is best to have it on her phone. Not heavy and she can search the meaning of the word easily and fast. Technology these days really helps in our daily life. Sad that we are dependent with the technology but happy for it makes our work easy and fast. Still thankful of this development but let us not forget the old ways.
Stranded! Yes, we are stranded at the port of Cagayan de Oro because the tickets for Bohol are fully booked. We cannot get any ticket even a chance passenger ticket. We we’re stranded for eight hours and it was like days of being there looking at the horizon and do not know what are we going to do. There is a way though to reach Bohol but via Cebu. Long route and it will cost us. But I’d rather get it than stay stranded.right? The vessel going to Cebu will leave at 7 in the evening. We have to wait for eight hours doing nothing at the port. Times like that, I really appreciate the importance of my gadgets.
While waiting for the boarding time, I played games on my tablet while my father playing games on my cellphone/mobile phone. It eases our boredom indeed. The problem is that the gadgets are running out of battery. We have to recharge it so we can receive message and calls from our family back home especially my older sister who is monitoring about his son who is with us. My tablet and phone are battery empty. Good thing my father’s vintage phone has enough battery, they can contact us still. Times like this, I do not regret buying those gadgets. They are my investments from the online job I earned.
The newly bought tablet of my sister is broken after accidentally fell on the floor. The screen is broken and the LCD. Same thing happened to my tablet before. It is still under warranty too, and it only cost me 1,000 pesos for the broken LCD. Because it is under warranty, she brought it to the customer service. We are expecting the same amount for the LCD but the attendant told us that they do not have available LCD. They have to send the tablet back to their main branch to have it fixed. But the sister told them to inform her if there is available LCD and how much it will cost.
The days ago, the company called the sister and told her of the amount of the LCD. We were shocked because the amount of the LCD is almost the same amount of the unit/tablet. They explained to her why it cost a bit high. The sister is sad. She just told the attendant to just send back the unit/tablet because the amount is not acceptable.haha! She opted not to have it fixed there. She felt sad for what had happened to her tablet. I just told herr to just let it passed and just charge it to experience. We will look for a technician though that can fixed it and have the same LCD with lesser amount. It will take time though, but we have enough patience.haha!
In my leisure time, traveling and when I am bored listening to music is what I like to do. I have downloaded all my favorite songs in my phone and tablet. So, wherever I go and whatever I do listening to these music lifted my spirit and makes me relax. This is my stress reliever I must say. My addiction of listening to music using my gadgets cost me four earphone already. Yes, four earphones are busted. The original one and class A (affordable one) kind of earphone. I so wish to have an earphone that will last longer and of good quality. Anyways, the original earphone of my phone was destroyed by my nephew.arghs!
The earphone that I am currently using is no longer working. It has been four days now that I did not able to listen to my favorite songs. I so missed listening while taking my afternoon nap and when I wake up in the morning. I plan to buy new one again but don’t have time to go to mall. Good thing my brother with his wife and son came to visit yesterday. They treat me to the mall. While at the mall, my SIL asked me of what I want. I did not hesitate to tell her that I want a new earphone. She laughed at me as if I am kidding. I said, I am serious I need new earphone. I was really happy because she gave to me her new earphone. It is original and the brand is of good quality. Thank you SIL for the earphone and the treat. I am the happiest person in the world because I am so blessed with people around me. Thank you God!
