My Sudden Desire

instead of preparing my mid-term test,
which is going to last on Friday 6th May,
I was surfing
and Psychology Today was the ocean.

and it comes to my (impulsive) mind,
"why don't I subscribe for the magz?"

now, I think I'm craving for any PsyToday magz,
both latest or back issue(s)...
click here for PsyToday Oct 2009 issue cover
(the biggest cover of PsyToday magz I've found)

and there is another thing I crave,


Presentation Wireless Remote !!!

oh my. I really want to buy it,
but I still wondering will it worth to buy...




btw, I just found this interesting article.
it's about 100 whimsical words.
I decided to re-post it in my blog,
maybe someday I need those whimsy words
