My Favorite Things is a monthly blog linkup to showcase the things you love! Every first Tuesday of the month, Eirene and I hold this linkup to make friends and discover some great stuff. I can’t say enough how thankful I am to everyone’s who’s been submitting. Not only do you guys keep this alive, you all have awesome things to share. Rock on!
This month, Eirene is holding the linkup on her book blog! Head on over to submit your entry, and maybe pick up a title or two.
My ultimate favorite this month is Pushbullet. It syncs all of your notifications across your devices as well as send files from one device to another! Whenever I get a text or call, I get a little popup on the corner my computer screen and I can even send a reply from it. This is so useful for me since I tend to ignore my phone at home in favor of chat clients. I also get notifications for new emails and tweet mentions so I’m way more on top of things now. Pushbullet is awesome!
My best friend introduced me to the Carmilla series on Youtube. Finally, a vampire romance I can get behind. I watched the whole thing in one night and I went to bed at 6am. Sailing the SS Hollstein feels so good~ I hope season 2 comes out soon! Supposedly, it gets released on Spring 2015 so~
If you’re a fan on Pride and Prejudice, I also recommend The Lizzie Bennet Diaries! That was the first vlog-style adaptation I followed, and I enjoyed it a lot.
If you like simulation games, you’ll love Cities: Skylines! I have zero architectural skills ( these power lines), but I’m still having so much fun building my own city. The part I love most is watching the buildings go up and my citizens go about their day.
The game has a built-in Twitter called Chirpy that lets you know how the citizens feel about the city. They even use hashtags! I have a sustainable city that uses green energy, so they’re very happy so far! I’ve been getting a lot of fires though. And traffic is getting bad! Argh, how do you plan roads??
Free! Special Episode
I know I mentioned this before, but I just had to add it to my faves.
NEVER FORGET MARCH 18. :’D My friends and I wouldn’t stop freaking out and mass reblogging about Free!‘s special episode. Bless. It’s ridiculously over-the-top and I love it. I’m also so happy that there is finally justice for Sousuke. ╰(*´︶`*)╯ Bahaha what a magical day.
Last but not least, Phhhoto! I signed up a few days ago, and I really like it. I’m not very active on social media but I love looking at other people’s moving pictures. It’s only available on iOS at the moment, but they’re working on an Android app so hopefully that gets released soon. Fortunately, I have my iPod Touch so I guess I’ll be taking it out with me from now on. Add me if you have one too! I’m raiscake.
