How Not to be…Motorola

Using our wayback machine, let’s go back to a time – the before times – when I introduced this new series called “How Not to be…” It was, basically, little rants about companies who were doing silly things that did nothing to appeal to their consumer or even business base and that was sad. I haven’t done one of these in a while, but this past weekend stated that there are still companies out there who…because reasons.

Hello Moto!

So last weekend, I discovered that my Note 2 stopped working. And by that, I mean it was no longer taking calls or text messages. Now, while I appreciate it knowing when I don’t want to be bothered, it should be taking phone calls from me when I call it. But alas it did not. Read the rest of this entry

Windows 10 is Here and It’s…Complicated

So, in my last post, I gushed how little issue I had with installing Windows 10 on my laptop. Other than needing to do a reinstall, which I had planned to do as a clean install anyway, everything went smoothly.

I had been wanting to try Windows 10 on Optimus Prime for quite some time now, as it’s faster and has a bigger screen. Surely, the upgrade from 7 to 10 would be much quicker and more rewarding on my desktop, right?

It’s my birthday!

Or rather, it was my birthday a few days ago. As I celebrate another year older, I looked back at what last year’s birthday brought.

What House of Cards Can Teach You in Life

A few weeks ago, my roommate and I finally finished off the third season of the Netflix original House of Cards, which returned at the end of February. Sadness, is of course all I can feel, with only the happiness that obviously there is a fourth season coming next year that may or may not answer the burning questions we now have.

New job, Lollipops, and Construction!

Hey gang! I know, long time no post, but I actually have reasons, several of them and everything is pretty good in the realm of Gina! So let’s get started, huh?

Hey Mr. Bossman, I’m leaving this here job

It’s official. After months of looking (many, many months), I have finally scored a new job and a pretty good one too. Not only am I getting paid more, but most importantly, I’m doing something I enjoy. I’m writing; in fact, that’s the job title – copywriter/blogger, but I’m also being given the opportunity to try new things, which is also a bonus. Read the rest of this entry
