FAQs

Note: As of June 2018, this blog is no longer updated and I've now moved to Story-Eyed. Here I've preserved many of the questions and their original responses, as well as the list of loves I've enjoyed my duration blogging here.

// What camera do you use?
Until November 2014, I used a black Canon Powershot A4000.
Until December 2015, I used a red Canon Powershot SX600.
Now, I'm still using my SX600 alongside my Canon Rebel T5i!

// What software do you use for photo editing and video making?
I use Photoshop Elements 13 for photo editing and design. For videos, I use Windows Movie Maker.

// Can you make a design for me?
I'm sorry, but I am busy and cannot respond to individual requests. However, if you're a group blog or a blog dedicated to a cause (like if needed for NHS) using Blogger or Wordpress, I can see if I can make time in my schedule. For inquiries on designing, please use my contact form and shoot me a message!

// How did you get the name for your blog? 
I brainstormed the name the summer of 2012, named after the times where I would play hard with the neighborhood kids that once used to live in the area, but little did I know that I would start writing on the internet eight months later!

// What are some blog tips you have for bloggers?
Be yourself and have original content. In other words, be authentic. Blogging isn't about followers numbers-- it's about creating content and sharing emerging ideas! Write what you want to write and what you're interested in. It may take some time to find your niche, but once you've found out what you like writing, then just keep going. The number one person that should be most content with your blog is yourself. Always remember that.

// I know you in real life -- what do I need to know?
Well, first off, if you're here and got the link from me, that means I trust you enough to share this with you because this is hard. The main thing you should know is: I've refrained from sharing personal details about names, places, and faces. Privacy has always been one of my top concerns. There are some posts from my early years of blogging where I may have slipped, but I have been editing that out slowly. If for any reason any personal info is shown (i.e. you don't want your photo or name online) and you'd like me to take it down, please contact me and I'll remove that bit ASAP.


// What are some of your favorite hobbies?
I enjoy immersing myself in reading, writing, (musical) theatre, photography, and volleyball.

// What do you want to be when you grow up?
Even now as the reality of college is coming up close, I'm still undecided! Currently, I'm leaning towards getting a degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering, with a minor in Creative Writing or English.
