As the title says above… eep! It definitely has been way too long!
It’s already May! When was the last time I blogged now? My birthday 2022? Dang.
This Entry’s Artwork
Super-simple… it’s an artwork of my new phone as of May 2023 – the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Despite that I use a Macbook Pro and an iPad, I still continued on using an Android phone, let alone, a major upgrade of my previous phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – my phone of five years.
What can I say? I’ve grown attached to the Samsung Galaxy phones, especially with the S-Pen. I love using the S-Pen, and that’s a fact. But most of all, the CAMERA phone. Seriously… it’s the CAMERA PHONE!! Now I can sell my old micro 2/3rds camera and just use this phone’s camera instead.
The phone is a lime green color, but that’s because I purchased it directly from the Samsung website unlocked. They were on sale along with a free storage upgrade, some free 6 months of a lot of services, and a discounted pair of Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. Plus, I traded in my old phone to add to the already discounted price. Lastly, I’m paying it by installments, which should give me some time to earn more to be able to pay more. I was able to transfer all of my old stuff from the old phone and then transferred my SIM card to the new phone.
I’m on a family plan with my brother, and my bro pays for the phone fees, so I did him a favor by purchasing this unlocked phone from Samsung instead of him buying the phone for me through our phone service. Win-win.
Just the latest since late 2022 till today…
I still love vTubers and still in the vTuber fandom scene. But instead of sneaking in my blogging in either Adri Mars INK (unfortunately, the domain expired without me knowing and I couldn’t afford to get the domain back, so the site is long lost and gone…) or the Chika Wota Blog, I decided to make it as a stand-alone fan blog: Starpura Space. I am a fan of HOLOSTARS, specifically, and how I got into them are all in the Starpura Space blog.
I got into another bootcamp, but this one is completely self-paced. I’m aiming to get into Automation QA, meaning I get to hunt for bugs the awesome way. I still want to get further with web dev though, but I guess I just lost steam and motivation in it. Hopefully I do better with automation QA.
Lastly, I’m still doing art. I got a domain that I plan to use just to post original art and build a portfolio of it, but for now, I don’t have any ready-made plans on when I’d be able to do that. Plus, I need to learn more and create actual portfolio-worthy art.
Other than that, nothing much changed in life. I’ll do my best to do better.
Also, because of things that I lost track on my well-being. My blood sugar spiked up so much that it seemed life-threatening to me that woke me up to reality. Luckily, with my new doctor, I was able to sign up in a variety of diabetes programs, so now I have a diabetes specialist and a dietician. The clinic also has their own app, so now I can monitor my blood sugar and the doctor and team would be able to see them, so I don’t have to come into the office to do doctor appointments with them unless needed.
Right now, I’m slowly getting into cooking the right dishes, so that’ll take time. Maybe I’ll blog about my new foodventures, one day.
Till next time.
