Like I said in my previous post, I’m trying to read 24 books this 2011. At first, I don’t know how I will manage to do that since the books will definitely cost me a lot of money. I thought of reading ebooks but I get dizzy when I stare at the computer screen for long periods of time so I don’t want ebooks – maybe sometimes, it’s okay. Then, I suddenly thought of used books and searched for those on ebay… I found a seller here in our country who sells used books – I bought two from her: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Two days later (now), I got the books and I’m so glad that they are good as new~ I think, I’m going to have the habit of buying used books from now on.
When I got hooked to playing poupeegirl last summer (not the Philippine summer but the other countries summer), it was only for a short time. I was definitely not playing it during fall. I guess, you can’t call that addiction. LOL Anyway, I’m playing it again and I hope I can stay much longer. The only downside is, I don’t have much items to post because I’m kind of a dork? :sweatdrop: So it’s kinda hard for me to get ribbons. -_- Oh I hope I won’t get tempted to buy ribbons.
I decided to really read books this year. Signing up at Goodreads.com inspired me and so I decided to read 24 books this year. Other people are reading like 60 books per year. But I don’t think I can manage that so I settle for 24 – two books per month. I guess I can do that?
I went to out today with mother to pay for our electricity bill then we ate at Mang Inasal for lunch. I ate a lot o_o like 4 servings of rice. *LOL* I blame the unlimited rice they offer. It’s so tempting. ^^; I think it’s good to have a good lunch but I think it’s not so good to be bloated when you’re in the mall – good thing, something didn’t get upset. *haha*
Right now, I don’t have much money. T^T Hubby-san was the one who paid for our electricity bill but it’s under my responsibilities. I can’t track the past weeks that passed – not sure what and how things happened but I guess I procrastinated again. *hides* That’s probably why I’m broke again. Hul!
I guess things could just be easy if I have an actual job, let’s say – something in sales jobs department? Oh well, I’m not really someone who’s good at sales. I guess I’ll just really have to work hard in this path I’ve chosen.
I don’t have a clear, detailed memory of last week’s events but I do remember marathoning Veronica Mars season one, Doctor Who (stopped at episode 10 series 1), and The Big Bang Theory. That was all I did most of the time and playing Dance Central on xbox360 with our new kinect! I’m telling you, it pwns wii big time. Weekend came and yesterday I went grocery shopping with my mother to buy food/ingredients we need for this week. For myself, I bought just a facial was cream and the Philippine version of 2NE1′s first mini-album (which is a CD+DVD). *grin*
The most memorable thing I did yesterday was visiting my HS friend C. It was okay – we did talk about a bunch of stuff – but at the same it was kinda awkward (for me). Awkward because I can’t talk about my true feelings about what’s going on between us three high school friends. It was like pretending 50% that everything’s fine. But that’s a good thing right? In a way. But yeah, I have mixed feelings about my visit yesterday. *confused*
I’m the kind of person who needs a lot of things. And this is my need-list at the moment:
Internet. I need and I yearn for well uhm, faster downloads! Like I said before I’m downloading A LOT and my current internet connection can’t keep up with my download list. #ambivalent# Everyday, I kind of imagine that my net speed is 1 megabyte per second – and that will take a 350mb download in 5-6 minutes! (I think.) That’s one episode of an anime or a tv show! #devil# I can probably watch a lot of Arashi videos in one day. I know 1mb/s (I mean real 1 megabyte download per second) is not really that high, let’s say compared to your connection speed – but you know, I’m living in freaking Philippines~ My dream of 1mbps speed is Philippine-ish~ enough.
HD/space. We actually have a lot of space here but it all belong to my hubby. Besides his old HDs, he has, I think two 1TB hard disks. I asked him to give one to me but he refused. :angry: LOL Maybe I should just burn my files but I think I haven’t burned anything since early 2010?
Time. With all the stuff I’m watching (shows), playing (video games) – and other stuff I’m doing (like cooking or sometimes FB-ing or twittering), I really need more time. I actually don’t have much room for work activities. ^^; Am I a bum? A NEET? Now that I think about it, this is kind of depressing. T^T I know I should just lessen those nonsense stuff I’m doing. But I just can’t stop, not right now. OMG, this reminded me of an early chapter in xxxHolic! You know, that wife who was addicted to the internet to the point that her addiction is affecting her family? I actually just re-read that a few days ago. I hope I’m not like that because there’s no Yuuko irl to save me! *LOL* Speaking of xxxHolic, gaawwd it’s going to end this February. I think Yuuko’s back! I just hope it’s going to end in happy-ending and in a real closure and not to mention, explain things unlike its sister manga *cough*TRC*cough*.
Anyway, since I’m at the topic of shows and video games, I’ll write a little more about what I’m watching and playing right now. Game first. I’m currently playing, in a PS1 emulator in our PC, Persona 2: Innocent Sin. I’m not really a gamer actually but I’m pretty new to Persona. My hubby introduced it to me and he said I should play Persona 3 after this. Now, why he didn’t let me play the 1st persona, idk. But yeah, I’m gonna play Persona 3 sooner or later, that is, if I can finish Persona 2. *LOL*
Regarding what I’m watching right now, I started with the season 1 of The Big Bang Theory! It’s really hilarious~ Aside from that, I think I’m watching Doctor Who 2005 (like I previously mentioned in my old post) and I think I’m gonna start with Veronica Mars season 1 too, maybe later because my hubby just got a copy~ Why oh why didn’t get hooked to American/British shows before? I guess I was blinded by anime and pretty Asian boys. *kekeke*
Back to the main topic, I need more pushing I guess. I usually procrastinate most of the time and it bothers me to be honest. So I want to focus more on working than this fangirl~ish things. But how/when/where to start? Hmm.
