So I’ve been thinking about this blog, it’s obvious that this one is full of paid blog posts. ^_^; I think it lacks real posts or more like it lacks real posts that receives comments! #crying# So I’m thinking, maybe I should post more stuff that actually concern me…. But I’m usually just at home, doing nothing not-so important stuff that I don’t think I need to blog. (Maybe my blog life is really over – I’m just keeping this for the moolah?) #sad# Aaaaah, I need to think about something to blog! :x_x: And I’ll try to ex-links with a bunch of people while I’m at this. And uuuhhhm, I think I’ll try to comment on other blogs as well. ^_^;
Anyway, I was tagged by my hostee and OL friend, Xian (thanks for tagging me btw!) who didn’t notify me about this at all. LOL

So uhm 7 things about me (in no particular order):
- I’m weird. I act weird. If you’ve met me, you probably know what I mean.
- I didn’t finish my college studies and I don’t really work. I’m just a bum. I work at home, trying a few ways to earn money online.
- I recently discovered that I can cook and starting to love doing it but I hate going out so I really hate shopping for groceries/ingredients.
- I don’t have much experience in drinking alcohol. I guess maybe I drank 2 times in my life so far.
- I’m usually lazy most of the time. I procrastinate a lot more than a human should.
- Like Xian, I hate spicy food too.
- I’m way too serious. Sometimes, I usually don’t get a joke. But Arashi can make me laugh for sure. [heart]
Tagging people later, will fine people to ex-links first. #smiling#
You know like I said in my previous post I’ve been reading the Bakuman manga. #approve# And reading it made me realize, remember something – my so called dreams or goals. :sparkle: 6 or 7 years ago, I remember I became fascinated about web design. [nod] That was when I just learned about how to use the computer and browse the world wide web. ^_^; Of course, the first thing I searched online was anime. It was always that. And then I happened to discover the existence of forums, met online friends and got introduced to the world of fansites and shrines. That was when I finally decided to study HTML and eventually CSS online, on my own. And then there was the blogging trend. It wasn’t like how the blogosphere is now. I was just blogging my life and nonsense stuff. Then I made blog friends and through them, I was inspired to make my own (anime) layouts. I don’t know if I’ve improved but I want to say yeah, I’ve improved. #cool#
I really fell in love with web and graphic design that time. I know it was mostly anime-centric but that was when I really loved doing it. My dream back then was maintain an anime graphics site and make layouts and designs and stuff. Apparently, I
didn’t haven’t fulfilled that dream yet. RL stuff happened and 3 years ago, I decided to become a freelance web designer. I think I did experienced stuff when I decided to become one. I even made a layout/template for a small company’s website. I got employed for a brief time as a web designer template editor in Makati, etc.
I guess I don’t want people/clients to criticize my works (and then make changes for them) so maybe that’s why I settled as a WordPress theme designer/seller (which is I think one of the best small business to start online). (thumbs up) I’ve been doing this for 3 years already. Looking back, even tho I think my coding has improved and stuff, I haven’t leveled up at all. (err, maybe a bit…) Heck, I haven’t even fully learned PHP yet. #angry# With this, I admit I think of moving on with something new sometimes. Like maybe getting a normal job? But I know I’m not suited for normal jobs. orz
That’s why, I’m still hanging on this path I’ve chosen. I got to. And since I’m still here, why not go back to my anime design roots while still selling my wordpress themes? #nerdy# Of course, I still need to continue and improve on this wordpress themes business. There are tons and tons of people who are better than me in this field.

I’m back to reading manga again. And by that, I mean direct downloads. I kind of just read manga online for the past 1-2 years. Anyway, one of the series I started to read was Bakuman (because the anime made me read it LOL ) It’s really interesting. About two young guys who want to be manga artists. The story revovles around the manga business. I’m not sure if that’s like in the real “mangaka” world in Japan tho. But it’s cool. (thumbs up) It’s so cool that I’m almost near to the latest chapter in 2 days. :laugh2: this is kind of my problem – when I get hooked, I can’t stop until I reach the end. Maybe this is gluttony? (woah)
It’s our 6th anniversary today! [yay] I can’t believe it has been six years already. Just like last year and years before that, we celebrated. Since moving, we kind of can’t go out of the house together because no one will look out for the house so I suggested I’ll cook for him instead. [Â´ãƒ¼`] Btw, I’ve been trying to cook “real” food recently. The first one was a few days ago and it was a dish called Pork Giniling :!?: (or that dish that’s like the Filipino Menudo with ground pork instead of cubed pork or whatever.) I think I did little mistake by not covering the pot when I let it simmered so the water/sauce kind of evaporated. But it good thing turned out (ok) . :3
The second one was the other day and it was a dish called Mechado. I think I put a little too much tomato sauce and did not stir it much so the bottom kind of burned. LOL But it turned out really ok as well so I’m happy. (I had to transfer it to a bowl and cleaned the burned parts tho). :sweatdrop:
So anyway, today I cooked spaghetti. [nod] Since, my hubby was here to assist me (He’s usually out, working.), I think I did no mistakes today! :sparkle: And I think it was delicious~ :star: (thumbs up) My mother tasted it and she said so too. [happy]
I ate a lot today. :>_<: And oh, hubby bought a chocolate cake! I really pigged out as usual. (buta) I wish I can go on a diet next year or try the best weight loss supplement. Oh wait, maybe I’ll list it as one of my New Year’s resolution?! [dead]
Look what I found in a used Japan home stuff store in our neighborhood:
Arashi!!!! Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi and Typhoon Generation! [yay] I got it for just 20 pesos. I know it’s not really like in mint condition but still…. XD Typhoon Generation has no CD tho so I asked the store taker to give it to me for free! [Â´ãƒ¼`] [/spoiler]
Shiki episode 18 was one of the best episodes so far. At last some human counter attack! I’m loving Ozaki-sensei now.
