So, been seriously busy for the rest of the year 2010 because my relatives from out of state came here to visit and spend their Christmas and New Year without the snow and the blizzard like they always do at their home state. In other words, I had indeed a very wonderful Christmas.
Spent the week before Christmas doing major winter cleaning (as in oppose to spring cleaning) of the house, most especially my room. Now it feels so light, airy and a whole lot bigger than it used to be. I got rid of all my old & outdated books from my bookshelf and placed the newer ones (the ones I’ve been piling up on the floor around the room) on my bookshelf. I also categorized them in different subjects in this order from top shelf to bottom:
- Japanese & Foreign Languages (mostly Japanese and some Tagalog)
- Creative Writing & Literature-themed textbooks
- Web Designing (structure & markup)
- Art-related subjects (traditional art and digital art)
I am currently reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, mass market paperback edition. I also bought the second book, The Girl Who Played with Fire, also in mass market paperback edition. My mom bought The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest around the same time as I bought the first two books. Convenient. :D
I don’t have that many New Year’s Resolutions to be honest, except looking for a full-time job, keeping the house (especially my room) as clean and neat as possible (though that’s not gonna happen I’m afraid), and be nicer to others when I respond to certain issues and topics I disagree with. In addition, I need to put more faith and trust on people than I used to.
You know, I felt very refreshed when I was offline in almost two weeks, making me realize what I’ve been seriously missing out when I spend most of my time hanging out online while there were visitors at the house. I became a lot more social with people in general even if it was just with family. Maybe I may have to spend the first few weeks of 2011 wandering out somewhere in real life, probably like playing videogames or just go to places and be alone or find inspiration to my future artistic work (whether they may be literal or visual). Maybe I’ll still hang out here online like I always do (then again, I technically have to anyway).
Oh, and for 2011, when time permits, I will seriously create a brand-new layout for this site, my always-abandoned portfolio, and all my other current web projects. Stay tuned for that. :)
