Just for now.
Elementary, but it bears repeating.

You can only be yourself. So go ahead and determine who you are and what you like. Not find, determine. Because it is most likely that you already have some ideas on what makes you tick, but you need definitions.

2011 is looking to be a momentous year for you. So go do it!

It's 3 hours and 30 minutes into the last day of 2010 here. I'm still up (of course), making a new book blog ( and agonizing over my mother's 5-minute powerpoint presentation (which I haven't even started on yet).

I'm spending New Year's Eve solo at home, which is glorious. My cousin, her husband and their baby daughter will be spending it at their store (the only store who sells booze there, apparently) and the two other cousins (meh) will be spending it at their dad's. I've bought the food (cooking Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta), the booze (two bottles of Asti Martini with 3 bottles of Vodka Caramel Mudshake left over), and the munchies for a sort of movie marathon.

The sister came home for Christmas and promptly fell ill right after grocery shopping for our Noche Buena. Which prompted me and our house help to rustle up the grub for the feast. For a first-timer at serious kitchen cooking (though the dishes itself weren't that complicated to begin with; turbo broiled chicken, cous cous, lamb chops, waldorf salad, no-bake cheesecake), it was challenging, but worth it. I'm cooking more this 2011. It was unfortunate the sister wasn't able to eat Christmas dinner with us.

The company's Christmas "party" (and I use the term very loosely) was... well, happened. Our department's Christmas party was... well, I'd tell you, but my brain was somewhere else. A bit... literally. And that's all I'll tell you guys haha

And I've submitted my resignation, last work day being January 07, 2011.

It's going to be a very new year. I've a list of resolutions (things that, for the first time, i'm actually confident of getting some done!), things are looking shiny, and I'm optimistic! For once! :3

How are you guys?

Massive friending meme over at [ profile] polychromatic, and I've gone and gotten myself some new friends. Hi hi, welcome to this little part of the person who shares space inside her head with Loosh, Elaine, Suu and Makie. You guys are the reason why, for some time back then, my body clock was on PST, then switched to EST. It briefly attuned itself to GMT time, but now It's back in Philippine Standard Time But I miss those days xD As I'm typing this, it's 10:03 pm here, soooo...

PST: 07:03am, Saturday
EST: 10:03am, Saturday
GMT: 02:03pm, Saturday


I blog about... well, anything, really. Fangirling (Though it's been ages since I did that, but if you go back some entries, you could read about how I broke down in tears in front of Neil Gaiman. And got a hug (!!!) and got vaguely mentioned on radio and in his blog for that xD), real life (I... moan about life a lot ;__; ), etc, etc, etc.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Welcome, all ^^ *runningtackleglomphugs each and every one of you*


The first Write or Die session went well. Arrived there about 45 minutes before 2 to find Kristel and Dean already there (with some of the Litcritters). A flurry of setting up proceeded, with a bit of panic when we found out that there was no plug for the LCD projector 0__o. And no working microphone. A spare wire plug was found just in time but no dice on the microphone. It's a good thing Dean had a large, booming voice that could be easily heard without one, so it was all good. Was happy as punch to find out that some of the Philippine NaNoWriMo people were able to attend.

His talk went very nicely, with him talking about his own experience on writing his novel, and his writing in general. He also gave good tips to the audience about novel writing and, again, writing in general. The NaNoWriMo people said it was very informative and entertaining too. Dean's talk wasn't boring in any way, and he is a good and energetic speaker.

Took pictures with my cellphone camera ( can I has DSLR cameraz? ;__; ), will probably post them tomorrow , since I'm a bit dead on my feet right now (more accurately, dead on my butt ^^) and dearly hankering for some sleep.

[ profile] icarus_suraki, your bjd icons, they will come tomorrow-ish ^^


Is there a "You Know You're Addicted To An Online Role-Playing Game" list? Is there an entry that says "... when you want even your RL journal to have icons to match your every mood."? I think I'm going through that now... xDDD
