Why the effity eff is the weather like this? I don't think I've ever experienced a storm for like, a week. I've only ever experienced a really strong storm for a day, and the rest of the week would be filled with showers. That is absolutely not the case this week. There's practically a storm everyday and I hate it. I wish it would stop so I could make it to work without getting soaked.

Haven't been able to illustrate anything with the tablet 'cause le sister is sick. We've been in and out of the house since Friday evening. I really hope she gets better soon 'cause aside from it being hard on her, it's really hard on my parents (who have been absolutely paranoid). Sigh.

Off to watch Breaking Pointe.

The Journey to Becoming an Intellectual Organism


And another thing: apparently Russians are viewing my blog. I can only imagine why. Is my penchant for vodka seeping through my meaningless rants?

That aside, let me share one of my favorite TED-X talks.

 David Griffin on How Photography Connects Us

I lalalove TED-X talks. The sad thing is I don't get to watch them as much as I wish I should. Perhaps I should make this a weekly thing, say every Sunday or so. Beats staring at space re-reading Faster than a Kiss again.

I've also been meaning to watch more documentaries (as I have said in an earlier entry), however: (1) I don't know of any good documentaries to watch, and (2) I don't know of a good place to watch these documentaries.

I'll try to document my documentary-viewing escapades in this journal, so I can actually be motivated to watch more.

I hate how the last four paragraphs have begun with "I". Back to work now.

I wonder...

...what the ever-loving fuck you eat for breakfast to make you think that I would like you?

Instead of that arrogance you keep ingesting daily, I really wish I could pour a barrel of concrete down your fucking mouth.

WINTERFALL//Paint Tool Sai

There's no winter where I'm from, but it's freezing like the depths of the arctic!!!

It's been raining almost non-stop since Saturday, and this morning is the first time I've woken up without rain from the window. I like rain when I'm indoors, but going to work is a different story! I hate wading through floods. Who knows what the fuck's been in those waters. I really hope it doesn't rain the rest of the week!

Today, I'm going to try and finish season one of Gundam 00, and hopefully get halfway through season 2, seeing as I don't have much to do anyway. Most people go on series marathons like nothing, but I've never actually watched a long series in one day, haha. I dunno, I don't even like it THAT much. And I'm watching a lot of other shorter shows too. It's really interesting though. I've always liked the Gundam series for its socio-political commentary. I've always wanted to be a Gundam pilot!

Something I also like about the series is that females are prominent in leader-roles, like Ms. Sumeragi, and they're seen as active in combat. But I'm still disappointed with the lack of female Gundam pilots, aside from Soma Peries (though it's just a mobile suit and not a Gundam).  Meh. We'll see how the rest of the series goes (I'm on episode 20).

Gonna make my second cup of coffee now.

This is the stupidest fucking blog layout I've ever seen in my entire fucking life.

OK, that's a bit of a stretch. At least I don't have a .gif background, autoplay music, and mismatched colors.

I'm still frustrated though. Anyone who knows me (and knows me WELL) should be aware that I am super particular about layouts and graphics, especially my own. As much as possible, I would not use default themes or avatars in any of my web domains. Or if I do use a default theme, I would subject it to heavy alteration.

I guess its because I just like having an identity of some sort on the Internet.

ANYWAY, I will definitely try to spruce up the layout. Maybe this Saturday, when there's not much to do.

Some introspection

A Little Light

It's way past the middle point of the year, and I'm going to take this time to look into my goals and see how I'm faring.

The ways the cosmos works against me

This morning, I woke up and said to myself, "Ji, we are too lazy to make ourselves presentable! The look of the day: hobo." Thus, I wore my loose neon pink leopard-printed shirtdress and jeans, braided my unwashed hair, and put absolutely no make up on my face (save for a bit of lip balm).

This afternoon, a cute boy dropped by at work and I was actually required to talk to him.

APRIL?!?! My last post here was APRIL!?! God, so much for a new life.

To be honest, I actually have been keeping up with most of my goals. My problem lies in the documentation, especially when it comes to the web. I'm having difficulty with our Internet connection at home and I've been spending more time net-surfing on my iPod as opposed to the computer. 

Lately, however, I've been arriving at the office pretty early 'cause my sister has a 7AM class, and to make life for my father easier, I have to wake up earlier and travel with her. In retrospect, it's not that bad, because I get to have a little bit of extra time to myself in the morning. With that, I'll try my very best to update this blog more often, especially with my art progress.

Another issue I have is with my thoughts. I'm the kind of person who doesn't like sharing too much about myself to other people. I believe thoughts and experiences are best left to the pages of my journals, be they paper or traditional. It's why my livejournal is set to private/friends only. I will also try to share some details of my personal life here, but with discretion. I'm not interesting or anything, but I'll try.

The above photo is one of my latest manga colorings. I said I was going to stop doing them, but it's from the final chapter of one of my favorite manga series. I needed a bit of a tribute to put closure on my feeeeeels.
