Sorry!

Hey guys!

It’s me! Remember me? Probably not, since I haven’t been posting in a few months. I’m sorry! I’ve been so busy with my new site and I’m also working all day and just eugh.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to post here regularly but I’d like to keep this blog up, just in case I want to talk to you lovely people, or if I have something I need to get off my chest.

In case you want to know what’s been happening and how I’ve been, the answer is…better. Things are looking up! My Krav Maga is going super (I’m actually going in an hour), and so are other factors in my life.

Besides that, I hope to see you on my new site, and good bye for some time :) (hiatus?)

New plans!

Hello again!

I’ve got a bit of news (I always do, don’t I?) — I’ve started a new website, and I have new plans for LaScarletCat. Sigh. I’m always changing it up!

The new site is called The Macaw, and it will have articles mostly in list form, with a slight humorous twist. I decided this personal post/article mix on the current blog wasn’t really a good match, so now I have two separate sites. One for the personal posts (that’s this one), and one for the articles (The Macaw).

It’s a bit empty right now, so I’ve decided to transfer the article posts from here to there (I don’t know whether to delete them from here, should I?). I know it might seem a little messy right now, but it’ll all even out, I promise!

Anyway, stay tuned, and thank you for visiting :)

6 Websites to Make Money Online

I know making money online is hard, and everyone seems to be in love with the idea. Unfortunately, it’s hard to stumble upon something genuine. I’ve been getting to know the jobs online this week, constantly scrounging for more. Finally settling on a few, I’ve decided to let you know more about them. Sharing is caring!

Postloop

logoPostloop is a website where you get paid for posting on forums. I can hear you whispering, “It’s a scam!” already, but it’s not.

To get started, go on the website and sign up. You will then have to make 10 posts in their forum (called the Portal). The staff will review those posts you made, and will notify you whether you’ve been accepted to post for them in 24 hours.

When you do get approved, you can go to the forums listed and subscribe to one to start posting. For some of them, you’ll need to have a better rating (it is from 0 to 5). But if your review posts are top notch quality, you’ll be  ranked high quite easily. On some forums you can only post 5 times a day, on some there is an unlimited amount you can post.

For each post you get points, and for those points you get money. 100 points is $5. It is very easy to reach 100 points a day. Imagine how much you could make in a year!

You can also get referrals. For each point they make, you receive 20%. This does not mean you are taking their points away; it’s like Postloop gives you those points for referring someone :)

You can withdraw the money using Paypal, which is more than suitable for most people. If you feel like signing up, please feel free to use my referral link! ;)

Bubblews

bubblewsBubblews is a weird little site. You can post…anything. Your articles can be short, long, with bad grammar (but it’ll be better if you can use good grammar, please). They’re quick to churn out — I posted eight today!

Quoting them — You will get paid for EVERY view, comment, like/dislike and social media shares for EVERY post that you EVER write on Bubblews. So you don’t have to rely on those pesky adverts to pay your dough.

You can also connect with people there (add them as friends). Frankly, the more connections you have, the better, since they’re notified when you do anything — this leads to more views!

The money quickly stacks up in your ‘Bank’, and it’s quite addicting to sit there refreshing the page, watching it increase. Even better, you can get paid by check, Paypal, visa gift card or Bubblews lets you order something.

Again, please sign up with my referral link! 

Prize Rebel

You must have heard of Prize Rebel. It’s more of a gift site rather than a money one. You complete surveys to gain points, which you can redeem for ‘prizes’. If the thing you want isn’t listed, you can always use the custom order.

logo_prize_rebel

They also have forums, with a friendly community willing to help.

I know this isn’t a scam since I’ve redeemed things myself. It can take a while for the points to stack up, especially if you’re not from the US, but it’s worth it.

Sign up. 

InfoBarrel

InfoBarrel-Old-Logo-BigInfoBarrel is a site quickly gaining members. That’s good news — it means not a lot of your article ideas are claimed!

It’s a passive income website. You write articles (with good SEO), consisting of text and images, and post them. Then you can apply for them to be considered to be featured, getting you more views. You can also incorporate Google Adsense, Amazon Affiliates and Chitika to gain money from them.

A little too hard, you think? On the front page, you can read some success stories, and it clearly says that one of the members, at some point, was making more money from the website that from their full-time job. That just outlines the potential with this site.

The community is also extremely helpful and friendly — it’s worth signing up.

CafePress | Zazzle

CafePress and Zazzle let you put images onto high selling items like mugs, tshirts, bags, etc. When something is sold, you receive a commission.

cafe zaz

So those pointless little drawing you made when you were young? Why not try and stick ‘em on a mug and gain something?

Zazzle’s advantage is that you don’t have to be 18 or over to join — you have to be 13 or over. So, no more faking your age!

Sign up to CafePress or Zazzle today :)

99Designs

99Designs is famous for it’s logo designs, but you can also create webpages and apps for quite high prices. You compete with other designers to create something, and then the person wanting the thing chooses the one he likes best.

99designs-logo-r

If you get good at it, you’re accepted into the 99Designs store, where you can create logos and sell them (the difference with the main site is that you don’t have to design the logo based on criteria).

Anyway, some people don’t like the idea of spending hours on something and then being beat by someone with a crappy design, but I think it’s an okay place to earn extra money. It’s not a scam — I was paid $200 for one of my logos — that’s how I bought my Wacom Tablet! :)

Sign up for 99Designs now.

Top Five ‘That Exists?’ Things

Top Five ‘That Exists?’ Things

Have you ever read about something that made you go, “Holy crap, that exists?” I have! And here are the top contenders  You’ll be sure to be spitting out your drinks at these.

Number Stations

Number stations are radio broadcasts that date back to World War 1 or even before that, that just basically list numbers in different languages. They’re stations that play static or are silent, except for when someone gets on it and reads out a string of letters or numbers.

No one knows what their reason is but many people suspect they are coded messages used for espionage.

One example is UVB-76. It’s been broadcasting for thirty years, from a live source, not a recording, nonstop, except for three times when someone came on and read some Russian names and left.

Square Watermelons

Oh, those Japanese. They realized what a bother it was to fit a tumbling round watermelon in a fridge, so they started producing cube ones. They do this by inserting the watermelon into a cube, tempered glass while the fruit is still growing on the vine.

square-watermellons_1

You think that’s cool? Wait till you see the  heart shaped and pyramid watermelons!

The Baby Mop

Let your baby clean while it crawls! If you like the idea of dressing your child up as a malfunctioning millipede or human-shaped octopus, then by the Baby Mop! Of course, the Japanese started it as a spoof advertisement, and it became a real thing.

The Barreleye Fish

So there’s this fish, that, oh, you know, has a transparent head that glows. They are found in water as deep as 3330 feet (1015 m), and spotted in the Pacific Ocean, from the Bering Sea to Japan (is it me or is there a running pattern here?) and Baja California, Mexico. They’re so awesome, that their food and predators are unknown!

Talking about creepy creatures, have you heard of the Elbow Squid? Well, you wouldn’t want to! Their arms poke down at an incredible length of 20 feet (6 meters)!

Butter Stick Type

Let’s finish on something completely ridiculous. So, you see how glue sticks give off that ‘heehee I’m high!’ smell? Well, let’s spread some of that on toast! Just kidding, this stick actually has butter inside. Mhm. Long gone are the days of messy knives. The Butter Stick Type is here!

Funnily enough, this actually looks quite convenient. You can take it with you, use it on things like bagels easily, and you don’t have to wash it, unlike a knife.

Or we could just, you know, opt for the spray butter.

Bombarded with Mustangs

Bombarded with Mustangs

In a week, the world will end I’ll finally start my holidays! Only, it’ll be more like ‘work’ for me. I’ve just started writing my new book so I’ll be working on that, while hunting for jobs. Sigh, I’m work obsessed. But that counter (2.3 years left!) isn’t going to wait for me to make enough dough.

Anyway, I went to my [sixth?] Krav Maga lesson on Thursday. Some of the members weren’t there, so we didn’t learn those James Bond-like rolls. Instead, we were taught how to punch. First we were made to run around a circle and punch this pad whenever we went past it; yeah, it hurt like hell. After he taught us how to do it properly, I think everyone was surprised. You have to squeeze your fist as tight as you can, and put your thumb at the side of your fist, not pointing out or in. And punch with your index finger and middle finger knuckles leading.

It was kind of embarrassing at some point when the instructor asked us to come out one by one and punch left whenever he shouted “left!” and vice versa. Everyone did it properly, but when it was my turn, I started maniacally punching left when he shouted right. That was a big face-palm moment.

For now, one of my biggest frustrations is my mother’s Reader’s Digest magazines. Although they’re made for older people, I find them incredibly addicting. What’s annoying is how with every issue you’re sure to get a bunch of green papers falling out, exciting you for a while as you think it’s money. Nope. It’s actually as fake as monopoly money.

Monopoly

In other news, my dad requested me to download him Poker Stars on my iPad (which I don’t really use anymore due to its brainwashing), bringing back wonderful poker memories. Sigh. I should start playing again. I mean, it’ll be really useful if I’m low on money and come across a bar in the middle of Texas one day! Back on topic, I also looked through my old iPad photos and pictures. I was bombarded with Ford Mustangs. Where the hell did I find them from? Now, there don’t seem to be any good ones on the internet.

I’m going to go now and put images in my other post from Tuesday since I didn’t have time then. Bye :)

Reasons The World Should And Shouldn’t End

Reasons The World Should And Shouldn’t End

We’re all aware of the 21st December 2012 theory, right? I used to piss myself at the mention of it, before I read somewhere that the world as we know it will end in 2032, not 2012. But before you start panicking, read this, which NASA themselves wrote about the matter.

- Reasons the world should end -

Awkward silence. There are reasons it should end? Yup, there are.

We got one planet, one little sweet Earth, and we killed her. I watched Apocalypto a few days ago, and the people seemed so close to the Earth! Maybe a little violent, but they weren’t limited in any way. You want to take a bath in the river? Okay, you can just jump in the one right outside your hut. Now, we probably have to notify a bunch of people of our intentions, make sure it’s allowed, and potentially face charges. People, we don’t connect to the planet anymore.

red lily

Seriously, look at animals, then look at our race. We don’t even look like we belong here! We did a few millions of years ago, when we wore fresh leather and had hair all over the place. Now it’s obvious we don’t belong here. For the superstitious  there is even a theory that Satan created our race, and we didn’t naturally evolve like all the other animals.

We’re destroying everything. Every three minutes, the size of five football pitches of rainforest is being deforestated! Everyone lives their life day for day; no one wants to take responsibility. Then, when the rumors of our world ending pop up, people start thinking about spaceships and moving to other planets. Yeah, are you going to ruin Mars as well?

mars

Technology has gone too far. Seriously. IPods, iPads and now mini iPads? What, so you need three sizes of the same thing? And apparantely, cars can now drive themselves. Even more time for you to text someone about how big the size of the thing you just excreted was! And those Google Glasses? I don’t want to constantly be connected to the internet! My dad makes these jokes that one day, the toilet will need to search for a connection to the internet before you’re allowed to take a piss.

Everyone’s scared of killer robots, yet people continue trying to make them. Look, buddy. One day, those robots (if they have a mind of their own, which the stupid scientists are trying to achieve inventing) are going to realize we’re controlling them. They’re not going to like that we turn them on and off whenever we want, and use them for experiments, like slaves. Then they’re going to rebel. And you think we’re going to win? Those metal bastards will have the whole internet at their hands. What do we have? A phone with it’s slow network (a Nokia might help, you know, with it’s amazing unbreakability).

In the end, we’re all just corrupting our Earth.

- Reasons why the world shouldn’t end -

Firstly – I would not want to live through any kind of cataclysm – the 2012 movie didn’t look like good fun at all. Secondly, if the world end, no only do we die, but so do all the animals! Yeah, that’s right! All those cute little sneezing pandas and teacup pigs that did nothing to wrong anyone! In fact, the only living things that do stand a chance of survival is bacteria. Mhm, those little brats that made you sneeze all over the celebrity that visited your school. How would you like that?

If the world ends, everything in our life goes to waste. Everything we’ve ever created. Everything our ancestors carefully designed (and got help from aliens), like the Maya pyramids or the Pyramids of Giza. Everything. Yup, that clay statue you made in first grade, too. Our discoveries, memoirs, pointless graffiti.

chichen

For those still in school, the dreaded school being will be the last thing they see. Our school’s last day is on the 21st December. Freakin’ awesome.

We deserve a chance, and we deserve hope. If the Earth calls it quits (or the Sun goes all Angry Birds on us), it’s the end of everything.

So what do you think? Should or shouldn’t the world end?

Note: The world won’t end, we will. See how egoistic we are, thinking we are the world?

Smashing Cones

My school has a tank full of water for when you’re thirsty. So what, you say? Well, they’re cone shaped. So it’s kind of easy to stab yourself or an enemy with them. Just saying. Not a very good thing to implement in a school where people get in fights for a living.

Anyway, I went to my fifth Krav Maga lesson on Thursday, and I think I smashed half my face in. We were doing these falling techniques. The instructor pushed us over, and then we were supposed to fall into a push up. The partner I was with pushed me with the force of air resistance on a plane door and I just about died.

But then came the Parkour type rolls, that I had been practicing at home anyway, so I was the best at that! :P

I don’t really have anything else to say. I’m just watching the Fix Factor X Factor and listening to random songs. Sigh.

Oh wait, I do have something to tell you! It’s my cousin’s birthday today, and I hope the world ends on the 21st! There have been some NASA rumors going around, that they said there will be a blackout starting from the 21st, lasting three days. Holy crap I hope so :D

Anyway, bye for now :)
