Review: The Darkest Night

The Darkest Night
The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Totally, rockingly AWESOME!

The story revolves around a set of warriors who protected the Greek Gods. They were vain and released the demons from Pandora’s box. As a form of punishment, Zeus sealed a demon to each of them.

Maddox was given the Demon of Violence. He cannot calm down and always thought of the words “KILL”. Not only was he given the demon but a curse to die at midnight like what he did to Pandora; and that is to suffer six stabs and die.

Both characters exhibited depth of character. They are perfectly in tune with each other.

The finale was a surprise and I am looking forward in reading the rest of the series.

Repost! I believe that women should be allowed to wear anything. Miniskirts are NOT pornographic!

ChocolatesandRaspberries

As the summer approaches I know we all are dying to shed some layers and dress according to the upcoming heat waves. However, don’t shed too many, at least not if you are going to Indonesia. Their religious affairs minister, Suryadharma Ali, has propsed a ban of miniskirts as he believe they are pronographic. 

“We still haven’t established criteria, but we know pornography when we see it” Mr Ali said, according to the Wall Street Journal. “There should be a general criteria, for example skirts worn by women must flow past the knees”.

This isn’t the first time miniskirts have led to a debate in the country – it has been argued that it could lead to rape. Indonesia’s House of Representatives speaker, Marzuki Alie commented “We know that there have been a series of rapes and other immoral acts recently,” he said. “Those things happened because women don’t dress decently, prompting men to…

How to Buy Books Online

 

It has become a habit to buy things online because it’s hassle-free. However, if you have to be vigilant about certain things. It is no fun being robbed with a couple of dollars.

EBayThe first thing I learned to do when I want to buy something is to go with those trusted names. Go with the big guys because they can basically afford to have people in the customer service department. Here in the Philippines, I suggest buyers to first go with EBAY.PH. If you will purchase electronics like kindle reader, digital cameras etc, you may consider AMAZON.COM but be prepared to wait for a couple of weeks and pay hefty taxes for your packages.

I have bought books via ebay and I paid through GCASH and UNIONBANK. There are sellers that accepts paypal or COD. Be very careful with the sellers and take a look at their feedback rating.

Here is an example:

EBAY FEEDBACK

Remember: Only bid on items that you are sure to pay. Sellers sometimes indicated the number of days you are given to settle the amount. After that, they will relist the items and file a case against you on EBAY. It’ll reflect badly on you and some might not be willing for you to bid anymore.

How to Pay for your Purchases?

You can send an email or ask the seller this. They will send you a list of options that you can choose from. Here are the top 5 options:

  1. GCASH
  2. BANK DEPOSIT THROUGH BDO, BPI OR UNIONBANK
  3. PAYPAL
  4. SMART MONEY
  5. COD

How long do you have to wait before you receive the items?

Honestly, I get them 2 days after payment is confirmed. It all depends on the buyers location and the seller’s schedule. The best way is to contact them, send a text message to make sure that you are updated.

Happy shopping!

What to Tell your Employer in an Interview

What to tell the employer in an interviewI just had a nerve-wracking interview with a potential employer regarding an SEO/Link Builder position and after writing how-to’s and stuff in this blog, you would expect me to answer smoothly and confidently. It was dinnertime and a lot of kids and family members are loitering around, I cannot get a moment of peace. So when the phone rang, I took a couple of seconds to compose myself and whoa, my heart was beating so fast.

As a freelancer and a person looking for jobs frequently, I had been browsing the internet for how-to’s regarding writing resume’s, prepping yourself etc and different advises on what to do and what’s not but I believe it’s up to you.

If asked about your skills, will you tell honestly or exaggerate?

This is a constant problem with freelancers or basically all people who are looking for jobs. Wanting to get a job usually puts people on the edge. Personally, I believe in keeping it simple and honest. Avoid overdoing or exaggerating your skills or you’ll find yourself jobless in just a short period of time.

Highlight what you can do best and do not forget to give references. Employers doesn’t expect you to be perfect and knowledgeable in all areas, so do not hesitate to tell them you don’t know a single thing about web programming (wink).

If you got lucky and land the job, organize your time so that you can have a little time to spend on learning new areas of the job. Also, there is no need to aim to get a degree on some areas just a little know-how will get you through.

By telling the truth about what you can and can’t do, your employer can leverage and adjust his game plan and maybe find another person suitable to handle the things that you can’t. That way, you’ll be able to keep your job.

If asked about your strengths and weaknesses?

This is a trap question! Just kidding. Your potential employer probably wants to know how you’d react and handle tricky questions like these. I believe that it’s best when you outline your skills and tell which ones you’re good at and which ones aren’t. This way, you’d clear all assumptions and not expect too much from you.

Throw in something about a situation that you have been into in the past and relate how your were able to solve the problem. It’s really important to rely on your experience and show that what you are capable of.  If you have a weakness, be proud of it but I am not saying that you go around telling people about it. Should always do something to improve yourself.

If your weakness is somewhat related to a certain qualification, do not hesitate to mention that you are willing to undergo further training to improve your skills.

If asked about the time schedule you’re going to keep?

There are several employers that doesn’t mind that a contractor keeps his own hours. By keeping hours, I mean that you are allowed to control your time and can work anytime as long as you were able to finish  your tasks for the day within the allotted time. Full time work is 40 hours per week and if you missed a day, you are allowed to extend it on weekends.

Check out the timezone that your client/employer is in and reference it to your hours. Overlap at least 3-4 hours to their time so you’d have time to talk and discuss matters. It also impresses employers that you are willing to work their hours. Others designate the hours that an employee should work as they do not want them working early in the morning or late at night in the belief that contractors aren’t productive in those times.

If asked about your expected salary?

Another tricky question. I read an article from Yahoo that the one that quotes the price first loses. Sometimes this is not the case, although I let employers quote the salary first. If I find it too low because of the tasks that I am assigned to do, I do not hesitate to give them my opinion. It’s actually a good move to negotiate on your pay as employers want to have happy people on the team. When asking for a raise in the negotiation, indicate the reasons why you are asking for that amount. Give relevant reasons and justify your actions. Most often than not, they will appreciate that you were being honest to them rather than looking for a second job to have a good income.
