Autumn ^__^

Autumn is here!

I am enjoying the leaves.


And early sunsets. ^__^

Beautiful view of Zurich, especially when the mountains are visible.


What I am enjoying the most is the cooler temperature!

How about you? What do you enjoy about autumn?

Eurobeat Challenge Time: Running Fire

It’s Eurobeat Challenge time! (Eurobeat is a style of music, mostly produced in Italy and sold in Japan. Made famous with Parapara and Initial D.)

I’ve decided that once a week I shall formulate a post around one of my favourite Eurobeat songs. Some of the song titles are quite funny, so let’s see how I can incorporate them into my daily life. ^__^
Sometimes unexpected things happen in life which can shake up things a bit. When these things happen, it’s easy to exclaim “Why me??? What have I done to deserve this?” Sometimes shit happens, but will you be a victim or the victor? I think I’ll pass on the pity party.

It’s all a matter of perspective anyway.

Seriously, it is… You can be all upset about something and dwell on it, or you can accept it and move forward as best as possible. This doesn’t mean that you have to be all cheery, far from it. It just means that you realise that certain things are out of your control and that all you can do is deal with it and move on.

Remember that really hard boss level that seemed impossible to pass but somehow you managed and now your skills improved? Well, that’s life! Each battle you face is an opportunity for you to grow and become better. While you’re experiencing the battle it’s frustrating and vexing. For me it can be like that. I am so irritated and annoyed, but I push through until eventually all of those feelings subside and I realise that I have become stronger, better and victorious.

There is no past, no future, just now! Simple really. I have the tendency to be stressing over a possible future I have yet to have. Who knows what the outcome will be? I don’t… So, why freak out about it? I think to build a wonderful future we must be absolutely present in the now, and live the best life we can now. Only then are we paving an excellent future! The only thing we have for certain is now.

Chasing my life around I'm running fire
I never brake on my dreams I'll reach them
Riding my life around I'm running fire
Take me high I won't turn back now

I keep on going fast on the road for you
My life is going up and my pressure down
And I will keep on

Let’s all keep going and going -  running fire. And, there is always something to be grateful for! ^__^

In the end, life will always throw stuff at you. It's something I've come to accept. There might be periods which are calmer, but there'll always be something - such is life. It's ever changing and challenging. 

May the force be with you!!!

October Nerd Block Classic

Yet again another box, this time the Nerd Block Classic (check my last post for more details about the boxes ^__^)

I was also excited about this one and it's contents.

Geek tested, nerd approved... Hehehehe.
This is going to be super handy. Huh? I'm going to use it? Of course! Why have things if you're not going to use them...

The tee in the middle is unisex, though for the next order I changed it to the female fitted shirt, since those fit me better.

Of course there are some items I like more than others, but for the price ($19.99 plus shipping) I think all of the items are quality. Later on I shall also be having a giveaway with some of the items, since I won't be needing them all... If you ever see an item you desperately want, ask me, you never know, I just might be able to part with it. ^^

What did you think of the contents of the Nerd Block Classic box? What was your favourite item? Mine was the Link phone charm. ^^

October Horror Block ^__^

Monthly box subscriptions seems to be all the rage at the moment. Most of them are to do with beauty however, and thus don't really tickle my fancy... So of course, when I discovered the Kawaii Box, I was excited. Though the items are all very cute, they are all also exceedingly pink and well... That's not my colour.

So when I saw Gamerwife review the Nerd Block, I was immediately captivated by the contents of the box. There were items that I definitely liked, so I decided to subscribe to the Nerd Block, Horror Block, Arcade Block. There are also the Nerd Block Jr girls and boys boxes, but I took a pass on those for now (since I am paying for them myself). 

The company is based in Canada, but they ship internationally. Unlike the Kawaii box, the shipping isn't free, but well worth it. ^__^

Here's what the October Horror Block looks like:

Some interesting items! The tee also fits well. ^^

What do you think? Some pretty cool items, huh?

Since I don't actually buy that much (excluding my last big purchases of the PS4 and Xbox One...) I figured why not treat myself to these monthly surprises!

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!!!
