Asus Zenbook UX32VD : Reborn

Image
Say hello to my prestigious Laptop : Asus Zenbook UX32VD. A long time ago (when i decided to buy this laptop), my personal reason is because i'm falling in love at the first sight, and you now? it's true love. The "body" of this laptop is very sexy and slim. The weight of this laptop is only about 1.47 kilograms with a new generation of an ultrabook. What a Incredible Beauty ! Problems Come.Okay remember when the old people say "don't judge the books by its cover"? This quotes is totally equal to "don't judge the laptops by its body, cover, and generations". Until the times come, here is my personal experience : 1. It's a rare model of Asuz Zeenbook. It's difficult to find the sparepart (including the adaptor, microHD converter or LAN USB) if mine is broken and lost. 2. The combination of SSD and HDD make a complicated and unusual laptop 's architecture. I'm sure mine is a prototyping model :p. I even can't use dual boot s…

Sleeping Life Cycle Problem?

Image
Well i guest on this lovely midnight i want to talk about Sleeping Life Cycle Problem. Then let's ask what happened? I couldn't go to bed earlier like common people. Sleep at midnight over and over, and what is the result? It's difficult to wake up soon at the morning. 
According to my private psychologist (actually she is my girlfriend :p), the best way to solve that one is not going to take a long nap in the afternoon. How can it be? In the other hand (for the annual information), i live in Bandung City now. Bandung? Okay, very cold in afternoon, rainy days, no sunshine on afternoon, make a perfect way to take a long nap.

Then when the situation comes, the best way to deal with it is go away and trying not to come closer from my bed. Thinking about another activity, like : socializing with my friend in dormitory, take a short and simple exercises, open the laptop then doing thesis project (this is very sensitive term!), cooking a food etc.

Okay the next thing to deal with t…

Image
It is time for going back. Hello my old blog, how are you? Let's write about one thing : social media. The most distraction ever and ever. Why we should using this social media? Instead of instagram, Facebook, Path, Ask.fm and the other.

Remember the most reasonable argument? to connenting people. On the first time using social media (registered on Instagram and Path) with my new device, i feel enjoy and happy to look up my old friend there. Time flies, and what;'s next? i find something wrong.

According to Hipwee, there are few reasons why we should stop using social media :
1. Use our time productively without less distraction2. Change our routine using social media to another activity, such as : reading, excercising, watching movie etc.3. You know who is your "real" friend4. Do something becouse you enjoy and happy to do it, not because you want to get more "like"5. Get another achievement6. Not comparing your life to other :)7. Not comparing? you can gr…
