It’s been about a week since I’ve posted, but not due to lack of writing. Well, it was due to lack of writing for one day. Yesterday was the first day in 2021 where I didn’t do any writing, but I needed a break after editing, rewriting, and writing bits and parts of a 50,000-ish word short novel of literary nonfiction I had originally written for the 2019 3-Day Novel Writing Contest. I did this for an application for a writing mentorship in Canada. It’ll be a long shot, but the way I look at it, nobody ever bought a lottery ticket thinking it was going to be a short shot, you know? And you can’t win the lottery unless you play, as I often say, for one of my many life philosophies I had written for myself over the years that I had blogged about.
The next optional rewirement in Week 1 of the Science of Well-being course is the free Character Strengths test on the VIA website. The test comprises of 120 questions and takes 15 minutes or so to complete. There are no right/wrong answers, and there are no better/worse answers. The key is to be authentic, so that you can derive the most from the experience.
Facebook has a new feature for its users. It’s called the Year in Review, and it features your Top 20 Moments from some algorithm Facebook generates from your profile. You may have seen it, or not have it yet, as it seems to be a gradual rollout. So look for it if you have not!
Just go to your profile. On the right hand side of where your wall starts, there should be a “2012” graphic and link to click on to see your top moments from 2012. A whole page is dedicated to it!
Recently, I started learning about dresses, their designs and designers and such, mostly starting through Pinterest (some I’ve like so far). Not knowing anything, really, about the matter, trends in what I liked started to pop out. They tended to be either time period of the dresses, by which many Pinteresters organized their fashions, or designers that many Pinteresters noted in their comments on each pin. I’ll write about period fashion some other time, but for now, I want to focus on a designer whose name I kept seeing come up repeatedly in my viewing of dresses, and that is Zuhair Murad.
These came from the Twilight wallpapers and printable posters graphics I have on this site. I have cropped them and prepared them to be ideal for Facebook Timeline Profile Cover photos, not just in dimensions but also colours and image cropping to get the best of each picture.
