converting pdf files to an iPod

this is also for future reference, just incase i forget all the things i did a few minutes ago.:)

just got home an hour ago, (giving you an idea on what my current stint is).
since i am guessing that i will be missing on a few readings because training week is the busiest. anyway when i got home, i openned yahoo.com because that's where i usually update myself with the latest news like adele being pregnant and katy filing a divorce. so anyway, an article caught my eye, uk's fastest paperback to reach 1 million sales. since i just finished reading pittacus lore novels and while waiting for the 3rd book, i thought that this is something worth reading. the thing is, bringing thick books on training is a  no-no, my training manual is kinda thick, no space in my bag. my iPod have 74 gig free space so why not use it right?

so this tutorial "kuno" will help me and some to convert pdf files to an iPod. it's easy and i thought, it's worth sharing. here it is... the steps is how i did it of course but reffered the steps on eHow.

1. download the file using whatever BitTorrent client you're using.

- mine's on winrar so i extracted the file and saved it on my desktop.

- look for the file (in my case, t'was saved on my desktop). open the folder, select the file, open it using adobe reader.

- on adobe reader, click "file" then "save as" and choose .text and select a location to save it.

- go to this site http://ebookcreator.sourceforge.net.  click on the select file, select the text file that you just saved. type the file name (indicate Book 1, Book 2 if applicable) then click upload.

2. while waiting for the file to be converted (it'll take 2-3 minutes for the text file to be converted), connect your iPod.

- on iTunes, make sure that enable disk use is checked. **do not disconnect the iPod yet.

** make sure that there's a lot of space available on your iPod.

- go back to the converter page and click on the title of the book, colored green link, wait for the download to finish.

- click on the downloaded file, winrar opens it for you.

- extract it to the Notes folder on your iPod.

*** if you don't know where the notes folder is, just click on "my computer", choose removable disk or usually, name of your ipod. folders in you iPod opens up, look for notes.

that's it, i have my eBook downloaded (3 books) in just 30 minutes.
though the screen is a bit small, it will do for now since i can't afford buying a tablet like kindle fire yet. in my case, my iPod is small and convenient to bring anywhere, it's not that obvious if i read during boring discussions. ;)

okay, gotta start reading.

goals- long term

i am a person who seldom plans, just a grab it and go.

long term goals is not my thing and that's one reason why i end up working on/at something for so long, i usually end up feeling like i've wasted those years and was just in it for the money not a career.  during that time, my heart and mind was programmed to what and where i really want to be but due to avoidable circumstances, the "i wish i knew then what i know now" moment, i always end up on the starting line. i am 25, still young but this fact is my main reason why i can't reach that goal where i wanna end up.

i can hear you saying "if you want it, work hard for it" or nothing is impossible in this world" etc.

trust me, i tried. it's just hard to compete with the current generation. man, they're so competetive and fierce. in the media world, one should have a complete package and sadly, i only have a quarter of the appeal & brains.

so 2 weeks ago, i had a goal. it requires a lot of effort of course. the stint that i have now, there's not much competition. i know that some are just in it for the good pay. for me, i planned for the long term goal after all, i feel like i am the only who can give my daughter a good future. relying on someone at this point is like waiting for a unicorn to show up at the end of a rainbow. and that is one thing that motivates me.

just not in it for material things, this is for my future and my child.

so there. ^_^

akala, what if, sana

sabe ni Bianca G. sa kanyang tweet, "the bad comments keep a person grounded, din pwedeng puro good.:)"

in-analyze ko yan bago ko nakuha ang punto. couldn't agree more, sabe ko sa sarili. maganda yung once in a while, maka encounter ka ng comment or mailagay ka sa sitwasyon na hindi maganda. dun ka natututo diba? hindi naman pwedeng sa buhay, laging mapalad, masaya, walang problema. 

sa buhay, ang mga problema ay dumedepende sa mga desisyon mo.

pag nailagay ka na sa alanganin, dun na lumalabas ang mga akala. 
"ginawa ko to kase akala ko..."
"akala ko malulusutan ko..."
"akala ko mag makakabuti sa akin, mas lumala pa pala..."

dun mo din maiisip yung mga "what if".
"what if hindi ko ginawa to..."
at ang mga "sana" moments.
"sana hindi ko na lang ginawa"

pero, since irreversible na, walang choice kundi harapin at sabe nga nila "suffer the consequences".

e kung sa hindi ka nga masaya kaya mo ginawa yun. dun na pumapasok ang other side of the story.
there is always a reason behind it. reasons na minsan e ikaw lang talaga yung makaka intindi kase ikaw yung nasa sitwasyon. 

BUT, i believe na kung may masama na mangyayare, there is always a positive thing from it.

you did it because of your reasons. whether it is being selfish sa paningin ng iba, all you could do is wish na sana maranasan din nila. wag ng pahirapan sa paliwanag, people are born to be judgemental and you can't please everyone so why bother.

I have my reasons, it was my choice, I will suffer the consequences and just hope for the best.

oopsypinions about BAYO's latest ad

i get that part when you have mixed blood, you're extra powerful, beatiful and all the extra everything.

this has been a trend.
obviously, people who graces our television screens are the ones who have half mixed blood and people who are related to someone rich or someone who really have that talent, mostly, outcome of reality shows.

a short story about an internet troll

you are an certified internet troll. a stalker and a psycho, yeah, that's what you are. have to deactivate my facebook because of you and now, you're here again, for sure, reading this and that's why, your level of insecurity reached to its maximum level. have to hide my profile and blog address just to get away from your prying eye. i am sure, after reading this, you go log in to facebook and would post something like "hahaha! ang lula, napaka-idiot, kawawa naman, sa blogger nagtitiis." or "feelers, ang taray ng lula, pa blog blog pa!"

June, so not my month

I wonder what June has in store for me.

The only plan that I have for this month is to not plan anything. It is the middle of the year and i still feel a bit restless about what I am going to do for the rest of the year. If there is anthing that comes up, work or any kind of opportunity that would make me inspired and would help make my future brighter, i would grab it. for now, i am okay with what i have thanks to my macute. wanna know why I call my daughter "macute", well, i told her that one of her dolls looks creepy, she said "maganda naman xa momi, macute pa". connection? do u still need that? come on! if you're a mom, you'll get what i mean. so whatever she says or does, i find her so adorable and amusing. love her dearly.

plans? well June is what I consider my "gray" month.
