Revamp Your Desk with Printiki

 

There are less than 3 weeks left until I officially graduate, get my Bachelor degree and start a new chapter of my life. In the celebration of that, I decided to revamp my study/work desk because, ya know, I wanted something new! My desk had stayed the same for pretty much the entire college years. I think it’d be totally appropriate to change it up for my after-college life.

What I Use to Edit My Photos

*This post was originally posted on joliecious.blogspot.com*

I’m a sucker for photo editing apps and I have a tons of them on my phone. I love to find out what apps people are using and try them. Trust me I’ve been trying so many different apps I can’t even remember. Today, I want to share with you my Top 5 Photo Editing Apps that I’ve been using a lot recently.

Four out of five apps are free but Afterlight is only $.99 and definitely worth purchasing.
1. VSCO (Android; Iphone)
Many of you might be familiar with this one. I’m sure everybody is talking about it. VSCO is a favorite of many famous Youtubers and Instagramers. This app is super easy to use with a lot of pretty filters. My favorite filter is S2. It comes with some free ones but you can always purchase more filters depends on your liking. It might be expensive but they usually have deal on a bundle so you can get many filters for discount price. Another thing I like about it is its gallery. 
Look like this. Very similar to Instagram so you can check whether your editing matches your theme or not This is not so relevant anymore since VSCO updated their app.

2. Afterlight (Android; Iphone)
This is the only “not free” app out of the five but it’s only $.99. What you get from the app is totally worth the price. It’s very similar to VSCO. The filters are more toward the cool tone feeling. So if you have a cool tone Instagram feed, I highly recommend this app. I also prefer the lighting and brightness edit in this app better than VSCO. I think it just makes the photos look better.
3. Snapseed (Android; Iphone)
I just discovered this app recently and I already fall in love with it. I use this to edit very dark photos and it works wonder without lower the quality of the photo. It might seem a little intimidated to use at first but once you play around with it, it is a wonderful tool. It has some unique filters as well. I love the Selective feature which allows you to edit one particular area of your photo.
4. Meitu Xiuxiu or MeituPic (Android, Iphone)
This is a Chinese app; it has some English and some Chinese in there. If you are familiar with photo editing apps, I’m sure you can navigate through it. This app is great to take and edit selfie. You can make your skin look better, make your eyes bigger, slim your face, remove pimples, etc. In short, it makes you pretty.
5. Picslit (Android, Iphone)
Have you heard about Instagram banner? Or see something like this?
Pretty cool, isn’t? I’ve been using it a lot for my Instagram. It adds a different touch to my feed. Basically, the app slits your photo up into pieces. Then you just upload them on Instagram in order. The app is very self-explanatory and super easy to use.
These are my favorite photo editing apps. Let me know which one you have used or if you have some other apps you want to recommend, leave it in a comment.

Good luck,

Congrats Class of 2015

Congratulation to all graduates of 2015! I was so happy to be one of them. Yup, I graduated from my college last Friday. Yet, I’m not quite done with the educational journey. It’s the beginning of a new journey. I graduated from a community college with an AA degree in Radio and Television broadcasting. I also got accepted to San Francisco State University under Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts.

Prior to the graduation, my friends and I were beyond excited. We talked about it everyday. There were total of eight of us who graduated this year so we decided to all stand next to each other and walked the stage at the same time (our friends were complaining about it because they lost their voice from cheering for us since we were back to back lol)
The ceremony started at 6pm but we came super early (yes we were very excited)

 

Getting ready but first let us take a selfie

 

After we put on our gowns
Then, we just lined up behind the stage and waited to walk out. Of course more photos 😀
 With my bestie. We went to the same high-school, graduated from college under the same major and both got accepted to SF State (of course same major lol)

My German bestie (She says I’m German at heart and I approves she’s Asian at heart ^^)
My fav “ate”. Congrats on getting accepted to your top choice school! (She was also my right hand person when I was still president of International Club)
I couldn’t explain my feeling when we walked outside, greeted by our professors, friends and family. I was proud of myself and my friends. It was very emotional I thought I would cry.

 

Shine bright everybody <3
Me among the students with highest honor (meaning we got 4.0 GPA)

 

 There were total 7 of us (but one didn’t come I guess)
 
 The moment we all waited for 😀

 

Me hugging my club advisor. She helped me a lot during my 2 years being president. She’s more like my mentor.
 
 
After the ceremony, graduates and their family were invited to snack and drink at our school cafeteria. I didn’t ate much because I went out and ate with my family. We went to the cafeteria anyway but mainly for more pictures.
With my mom (I think she cried when I was on stage for my 4.0 GPA recognition. I know she’s proud of me so much. Love you, mom)

 

 

My International Club friends. We got our country flag sashes as presents from the club.
I still couldn’t believe I’m done with community college. Honestly, at first I thought community college was just a stop for me to a 4-year institution. However, during my 3 years here, I’ve learnt so much and made unforgettable memories. I never regret going to a community college and will never try to hide the fact. I’ve met all the closest friends of my life, inspiring people with biggest hearts. I’m now ready for whatever is waiting for me ahead.
For all the 2015 graduates out there, congrats and good luck!
