Sentimental Saturdays (2 Disc DVD’s)

dvds

Can you remember a time when Blu Ray Discs didn’t exist? Anyone? Gee, I may be showing my age on this one, but there was in fact a time where Blu Ray discs weren’t available (yes- 10 years ago I think), and DVD’s were the crème of the crop. During the 2000s, when online viewing of movies wasn’t much of a craze, purchasing DVD’s was the way to go if you wanted to watch your favourite movie that you saw in the cinemas a few months prior. While prices of DVD’s have relatively stayed the same throughout the years; what has drastically changed has been the amount of bonus features on the DVD, and how many discs in the DVD package.

TV Thursdays: What Can We Learn From Our Mentors? (Suits, White Collar)

Do you get envious from time to time? Like really jealous of the person sitting next to you, wondering why ‘he has this and this and this, and I have only that’? Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you’re abnormal or anything, just that you are curious and human, like we all are. What if I were to tell you that most of the time (alright, some of the time then…), part of the reason why people succeed is because of an experienced and cultured mentor guiding them and giving them sound advice in their decision making? That part of the reason why people succeed is that a superior in work or in life experiences imparts wisdom and shares knowledge to them?

Sentimental Saturdays (Recording from CD’s/Radio to Cassette Tapes)

cassette tape

I can still remember back to during the time when me and my brother were in primary school. No DVD’s, no iPads, Nintendo Wiis, Netflix, possibly not even iTunes, Foxtel or laptops even. Just the cathode ray tube TV, the CD/cassette tape recorder, and a clunky old computer that was probably Windows 2000. It was during those days that life was simpler, and we were able to not care that much about all the technological advances that were happening, even during that time. Call it ignorance, or call it just a happy childhood where worry wasn’t an issue, I can remember back to one particular pastime that our family, especially me and my brother, partook in- recording from CD’s and the radio to cassette tapes.

TV Thursdays: If We Lived our Life a Second Time, Would We Do Things Differently? (Being Erica)

Ever wondered how it would be if you lived your life again? Like for a second time, a do-over, a chance to start again? Regrets are common and universal to everyone. It’s something that people deal with, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, religion, morals, values, ethics, belief systems… you get my point.
