This is one of those apps I installed when it comes to organizing my photos as I take them. I had some few apps that I downloaded for free but it didn't give me the features that I really need. I was looking for a photo organizer where I can actually remember when the photo is taken and can attach them directly on which date were they taken. It works with both iphones and ipads but no syncing. And by the way, it costs $1.99 at the appstore :). But it's worth it!

Photo-365 is in a calendar format where every photo you take can be automatically filled in the current day on the calendar or you can choose to download photos you took previously from your camera roll and put them in the corresponding date when the photo was taken. 

There is an option on the settings to choose whether you want to download one photo a day or unlimited photos. Of course, I chose to download more than 1 for a day. Each photo can be captionized. So, more or less, this app can be used as a photo blog too! It is mostly ideal for those who captures a lot of photos and then organize them in such a way that you remember when the photos were taken.

You can also choose to share it or make it private (with a password). Cool, isn't it?

Rent, Buy & Sell Textbooks

You don't need to spend lots of money buying textbooks, whether for the purpose of your school needs or personal ones. Nowadays, it's always a smart idea to be always practical in life. Getting a better higher education can be practical too, just like when buying, selling or renting things, such as textbooks.

For instance, you can buy books online where you can save, or rent them to even make your financial budget much more manageable, or you get to have several options too, like if you need to sell them online if you got a lot of them and no longer need them. That's a practical idea worth doing!

It's either you save in having one or you get cash from having them ;).

Just check and see it from there.

Giving Your Comfort The Proper Way

Surprisingly, the most common lines we usually hear people say when somebody is grieving or sad are not actually the right things to say. Like the following below for instance...

When a friend or a person is sad, we usually try to cheer him/her up. This actually feels irritating because it makes you feel dismissed! The proper way to do it is; - ask how he/she feels.

According to Val Walker, a grieve educator, avoid preachy lines like "God never gives us more than we can handle" can help, but not for many (at least for that time). It is better to speak from what is inside your heart.

Avoid words like "I know just what you're going through"...because you just don't! Instead, say like "I can only imagine what you're going through".

Offer other specific forms of help such as "I'd like to bring dinner over tonight", instead of telling "Call me if you need me." No one likes to ask for help in times of bad loss or grieving!

Motorcycle Protectors

It's seems Mr. Summer can't wait any longer. We are now on the last few days of Spring, and yet the heat is starting to take its peak. It also means lots of outdoor the beach, pools, road trips, and yes...lots of motorcycle drivers on the road as well ;).

And speaking about motorcycles, you have to bear in mind that summer can be very harmful for them from the scorching heat of the sun. If you don't have any shade or garage at home or you just simply run out of space as to where to put them, it's always good to have motorcycle covers as protection.

Worth recommending are those waterproof covers to protect your motorcycles all season.

Are You A Good Wedding Guest?

I am sure many have the experience of being a wedding guest. But it's because you are invited as a guest in a wedding doesn't mean there are no rules of etiquette you should consider. You are invited to witness, so be a good one ;).

If you received a invitation for instance, RSVP immediately. Don't wait until a week or two before the wedding because it is inconsiderate. Just say "no" if you can't rather than being silent for a while which is often more frustrating for the one inviting.

Don't bring a date or a companion unless it is indicated on your invitation you can bring one. Asking to bring one is not ethical!

Arrive at least 30 minutes early before the ceremony. But if you are late, make sure the bride has finished her procession to the altar before you come in.

Respect the couple's chance to share their professional photos first before you decide to upload your photos to any social networking sites. 

If you want to leave, do it politely. Be sure to thank the hosts or let anybody close to the couple know you're leaving if the couple is busy enough for you to approach them.
