:p back for an update of my life, haha. just realised that some things are never going to get done if i keep procrastinating, and this blog happens to be one of those on my ‘yeah-i’ll-get-to-it-someday-but-i’m-not-in-the-mood-to-do-it’ list.
Current high-rankers feature earthshaking to-dos such as..
a. finish up my story
b. put my story up on my geocities web
c. design a template for the story
d. make a printable version of the story and print/bind a hardcopy of it.
e. stop thinking about the entire issue (hopefully)
*note that if task a is never accomplished, all the rest will never come to pass =) by procrastinating one task, i can actually stop four others.. kewl! think i will get down to abit of writing later though; i do plan to finish it before christmas in 2004 :X sounds like a long way off eh? grinz. the power of having a faraway deadline.. procrastination sets in *once again*.
i have only like three more months of events to cover. hmm shouldn’t be a problem, even if i write like half a chapter per month. regurgitation’s not that tough after all, and there’s no editor behind my back screaming for neatness in my work =) long live messy writings! i made a desperate attempt at organising the chapters at the beginning, but in the end simply gave up and let everything flow.. lol. don’t be surprised if the chapter lengths vary! those people i send my drafts to on a regular basis can read my updates from time to time; the rest of you’ll have to scream at me sometime to get a chance to puke from the story =)
i think there’re few people in the world who don’t complain about their work; nothing in life’s perfect after all =) basically, i like my work. i’m not getting enough sleep though; think concussing at 1a.m. isn’t good enough yet =(
the daily weather currently seems quite determined to keep me splattered with rain and mud on my way to/fro work on a frequent basis; i curse and swear occasionally.. but i guess i should be thankful that i’m not trapped at my office with a heavy-duty downpour instead =)
it’s quite a carefree life, and hands-on technical labour’s less taxing on the brain; no progress tests to check on your learning as well. however, there’s an unseen benchmark system at work of course. screw up at work, and my colleagues’ll have to step in to cover my stuff; repair my mistakes, correct me, and delaying everyone in general. add to the fact that there’re no actual lesson plans in work (no mentor spoonfeeding you knowledge for a change, how’s that?) ‘cus alot of stuff are observe, learn, and ask questions when in doubt. well, i guess i’m still a bloody turtle while doing my stuff, really feel like i suck sometimes man =) wiring a rj45 connector (i.e. the hole you plug your lan cable into) may seem like a simple task, but with it comes alot of thou-shalts and thou-shalt-nots that i wasn’t aware of, oops. screwedup on that and wasted alot of time atoning for my sins today.
my current colleagues are pretty easygoing people also; most of them are either a few years older than me OR are ah peks in their late 50s. silence may reign during work, but some of the crap they exchange during work really brings tears to the eyes while i silently try to control my laughter, trying hard to concentrate on the work at hand.
one favourite topic borders on ‘original’ and ‘oem’ stuff (i.e. super unbranded vs recognized brands) which can be virtually applied to everything we see, like the ‘oem’ pringles (aka potato chips, for the spastic..) from a gift hamper in the office. i know it’s a queer sort of thing to laugh at, and you’d prob be scratching your head wondering what the f**k i’m talking about.. but you’d understand if you were in my company, lol. having fun at work makes the time go easier =)
nothing much on the mental these days; i seem to able to distance myself from those thoughts better now. i no longer sink into an endless cycle of those self-directed insults, blames, what-ifs, and accusations that once plagued me day and night. of course, that doesn’t mean the entire crap’s packed up and gone. the insistent conclusion that i’m a worthless idiot and should rightly remain single still remains; the rational part of me tends to agree with that one wholeheartedly =) no sense making myself and other people miserable, should just save the trouble and just keep those unneeded feelings inside my head, locked away.
ahh.. i’m only gonna watch lotr:rotk on christmas eve.. man it feels like forever =( *insert long wait while everyone around me goes “woah that movie rocks!” + overpowering urge to stab overexultant friends who’re watching it soon*
on the other hand.. infernal affairs 3’s already out! so here i lie, waiting for monday to come so that i can watch a $6.50 movie. most prob i’ll be watching it alone i guess, can’t get anyone to watch it with me yet lol. too repulsive i guess =)
and man, the comic’s coming out soon too. hope i can get it soon, seems that there’s free movie posters included with the comic *drool* damn nice. dunno if it’s a scam though; they’re definitely not making a profit if they include five posters along with the comic.. either that or a hugely marked-up price tag.
spiderman 2’s trailer’s out! another one of those must-watch for me.. grinz. huge spidey fan here. check it out here
just added maddox’s page (aka the best page in the universe) to my list of links; do check it out! =) full of amusing crap i enjoy; stan and i couldn’t stop laughing over it last night haha.
another sad sidenote; rainia’s stopped updating her blog for the time being, she’s headed down to oz for a holiday. man, less one thing to take my mind off life’s suckiness =( i’ll still keep the link down there for now though. ah well, there’s still morit’s blog i guess haha =)
wonder if i should update the banner on this blog, lol. my eye’s healed anyway. maybe a new graphic when i’ve new inspiration.. hmmmmmmmm. i really wonder sometimes how many people actually read my blog.. eh those of you who can be bothered, leave your name on the tagboard OR the comment page in this entry leh. i feel like taking a count! :X
okie, enough for tonight. quite disgusting to go on and on and on.. i feel like i’ve written a ton of rubbish -.- save the rest for another night, lol.
