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?

I love my new default icon. Audrey Kawasaki's girls all might look the same, but... I like all of their haunted looks that way. Along with the sensual way that they look, peering out of their half-lidded eyes.

[ To know the difference between a geiko and an oiran, look at their hair ornaments. A geiko or even a maiko will have fewer hair ornaments than an oiran will. Also, an oiran will have her obi tied in front as opposed to its usual position at the back. I'm... still a bit vague on the differences between oiran and geiko, but Wiki tells me that the oiran predated the geiko. More readings are needed. ]

... more icons too xP


Note to self: do not forget to check her blog often for updates. I love the way she writes.
