Another Year is Ending...

Yeah.. as another year is ending and another is starting... people are going to celebrate all over the world and I really still don't understand the point or the purpose >_<

Anyway, forget about this celebration... and let's talk about some other things... I was suppose to read more books this year, but instead I read less and watched more movies and TV shows (^_^') .. yeah I know that might look like a loser for bookworms, but Hey! I just got one life and many many things  to do and I try to enjoy everything starting from books reading to watch movies and TV shows, Playing video games, hangout with family and friends,  keeping up with the world news and disasters, and WORK for 40 hours a week =) .. I've got to earn my living ... so of course work is a very important part of my life... without work I won't be able to do most of my life entertainments activities... okay things are getting boring here...

Things needs to get organized and I need to put plan... to keep track on my achievements during a year... My biggest achievement in 2015 was to lose 16Kgs and I am really proud of myself.  I feel lighter, healthier and stronger ^_^ and of course HAPPY. I plan to lose more... Yes I used to be fat my whole life and I am glad to change that forever. I changed my lifestyle and food diet and plan to keep it like that.

Okay, every year I plan to read more books than the year before, but I failed this year to do so... I just don't like to push myself to hard and enjoy every book. Also, I read other stuff sometimes... like comics and blogs... yes these don't count but it is still reading ^_^ YES I AM DEFENDING MYSELF and in the end it is my life ^_^ ... okay okay .. I will work harder and read more on 2016... hopefully I would succeed in the 2016 challenge.

Yes of course.. what were you thinking? 2016 without Movies and TV Show! no way... I have got a waiting list to complete in 2016 ^_^ many movies and much more TV shows to enjoy with my family and friends.  and I will write about them in my blog soon and they are not specifically released on 2016. First TV show would be Colony (2016)

Starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies and they are my favorite actors ^_^ Josh Holloway from LOST (2004) and Sarah Wayne Callies from Prison Break (2005) they were great and it is nice to see them together in one TV show ^_^. I watched the trailer and I am excited to see the show.

Okay thats enough for now... hope the coming year would be better than 2015 and the financial crisis would be solved soon.

Over The Garden Wall - TV Show

This is one of the best animation series I have watched ever!! Over The Garden Wall is a mini series tv show full of creepy adventure and fun... Once I started watching it I couldn't stop... it is interesting with all the strange and creepy stuff. The story is about two brothers who get lost in the forest trying to find their way home. On their journey they face many creepy things and try to survive it in a funny ways ^_^

I love this series regardless of the simple animation style... I hope they have plans for another season ^_^

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Book

Currently, I am reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling which is the third book in the Harry Potter series. This one is really my favorite book and movie actually. Things are getting more exciting here and fun and it is not focused on Lord Voldemort this time. As the book title tells, it is about the Prisoner of Azkaban. I really can't rate the book now as I just read 20% of it. I will give my rating when I am done ^_^

The book was amazing and much much better that the movie... I love it specially the part when Harry and Hermione when back in time... that was really creative and fun

Office New PCs Sucks

I requested a new PC at my work as my current one got old and slow and the hard desk is not able to hold more data and applications... So, I recieved it last week and it was installed at my office by the workshop guys. The New PC works on Windows 7 64bit with a 500 GB hard disk and 8 GB RAM... everything seems good so far... until I started using it :(

Yes it sucks... because the image the workshop people used to install and configure my new PC is bad image... as the Windows not genuine message keeps showing up along with other issues concerning running in housed 32bit applications and important tools that i need to use in order to get my work done... anyway no one from the helpdesk seems able to know how to solve this issues... and the usual most used sucking solution was suggested which is format the PC and install a new image from the beginning...

I spent two weeks trying to solve this stupid issues and problems but no use... the help desk sent someone to my office and was not able to solve it... and he kept making multiple  calls to get support from his colleagues and no one seems to remember the solution to this problem!!!!! OH MY GOD this really sucks....

What I really think I am going to do... I am going to install my precious beautiful working perfectly old PC and dump this fault one ... yes I am really upset and angry :(

Seagate 6TB 128MB Cache Desktop HDD Hard Drive - PC Upgrade

Yeah... I upgraded my Gaming/Editing PC the one I built as a birthday present last September. When I first built it, I just built it with a Samsung 250 GB SSD to store my OS and other applications, but I needed more space for my videos and games which really need more and more space. So, I decided to go for a big storage HDD and I was really vacillated between going for a 3TB HDD or 6TB HDD... ao I thought for the long term I will go for the 6TB even if it is more expensive. Of Course I read many reviews about many different HDDs before choosing one. I waited for Black Friday and I bought it for $199.99 which is a very good price in my opinion.

I received it yesterday and I plug it to my PC and formatted along with the Allocation process to create two partitions; one for videos and the other for games. I transferred all my videos to the videos partition and I was really relieved and happy for the plenty I space I got ^_^

Now I can work on the videos without worrying about space.

In The Heart of The Sea (2015) - Movie

I watched this great movie last Thursday with my best friend. We really enjoied it. The movie is inspired from the novel Moby Dick. I tried to read the novel... but I couldn't finish it as I found it boring :(
Anyway, the movie is a different story because I enjoied it. It was very thrilling and the visual effects were good.

"In 1820, the whaling ship Essex is crewed by the Captain George Pollard, Jr., first officer Owen Chase, second officer Matthew Joy, and cabin boy Thomas Nickerson. During their voyage, the ship is sunk when it is rammed and split in half by a very large and enraged bull sperm whale, ultimately leaving its crew shipwrecked at sea for 90 days and more than a thousand miles from land.After the attack, the crew sails for South America and is forced to resort to cannibalism." (Wikipedia, 2015)

Falling Skies 2011 - TV Show

Last weekend, I started watching a science fiction TV show called Falling Skies. This show is about humanity survival against alien invasion to planet earth. I know I know ... it is not something new, but I had to give it a chance and I liked it. There are a lot of similarity between this show and The Walking Dead show. The difference it the enemy. If you liked The Walking Dead then you will like Falling Skies. I completed season one and I just started season 2 yesterday. I will give my rating after completing the last season ^_^ if I didn't forget to do so =D

"Falling Skies begins six months after a global invasion by extraterrestrials, where in only days, the invaders neutralized the world's power grid and technology, defeated and largely destroyed all the world's militaries, and killed over 90% of the human population by destroying all of the world's major cities and capitals.

The aliens include mechanical attack drones called "Mechs"; a species of light brown-skinned six-legged beings known as "Skitters" that appear to control the mechs; and a mysterious species known as the Overlords, or "Espheni", presumably the actual engineers of the invasion and the masters of the Skitters." (Wikipedia, 2015)

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets - Book

I completed reading Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone few weeks ago and started the second book by the amazing JK. Rowling. This book is enjoyable like the previous one and I cannot stop reading it. It is very interesting and there are new characters. I will give my rating after completing it. I already watch the complete movie series but reading the books is another story of course.

Office Moving...



Yeah .. today is our last day in the current office location and we are moving to somewhere else... we have been in this location (M.C) since 2009 till now so it is like 6 years... our location is good but I don't want to judge the new location before going there... you know you can't judge something before having experience. The only problem is the parking... it is a tower with small parking lot on a main street which makes it hard to locate a parking near by. I hope the management will fix this problem soon :(

Anyway, I felt bad at the beginning but I am trying to be optimistic about it and hope for the best.

Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone - Book

lately, I was really bored and I wanted to read something interesting and really good. I want to read something exciting that I couldn't lay the book down. My sister (N) advised me to read Harry Potter series by JK. Rowling. So, I took her advice and started reading Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone which is the first in the series. My sister was right, the book is very good and interesting. I couldn't stop reading and I don't want to put the Kindle down for any reason. Oh yeah, I have it on my Kindle as ebook. I completed 70% of the book in 2 days which is really remarkable because I usually spend 2 weeks to a month in one English book as my mother language is Arabic.

Since I almost completed reading the book my score is:
