I'd Still Rather Go Ice Skating

Hey you there, the Jolliest Christmas to you. :D
My sincerest apologies for the belated greet but, as you know, 2012 is just around the bend so I've been awfully busy with New Year's business and what not; the whole family has been. And oh, dad's here too, practically knee-deep in the hubbub of the ongoing New Year preparations. Well, not exactly but you know, he's getting stuff done; to the house, particularly. :D It's all quite exciting. :))

We were clearing out Jason's room yesterday and there I found my old inline skates. Jason's supposed bedroom currently doubles as a sort of storage room, bursting with boxes and boxes of stuff from papers to widgets that date back to who knows when. It had to be sorted out sooner or later. No better time than the present, I reckon. :))



These inline skates of mine have been with me, if my memory serves me right, almost 7 years now. I believe I got them when I was a wee 11 year old girl. What's awesome is that they still fit, snug like a glove. I guess not having had really grown all these years does have its advantages. :))

Behold, the Adventures of Daddy and Co. LOL.
I'll leave you with random pictures from our ventures of massive fun since I'm just way too tired to bother elaborating on anything. :)) 






Bah, I'll upload the rest some other time. I have a reunion to attend to tomorrow; ought to get some shut eye. And oh, we've got hamsters. :) You'll have to wait till I get better pictures of them though. Fidgety little critters won't let me take a good shot. LOL. OH WELLZ.

Before I go, let me show you what I gave CJ for our class's gift-exchange thing. :D


It's a notebook with a grenade-mold cover. It's an awesome notebook. And, quite honestly, I gave it away with the heaviest heart. LOL. But I guess it's alright. :)) I could always buy myself one. :D

Get well soon, me.
And good morning, everyone.

No One Ever Bothered to Perfect the Jetpack

There is no hope for me. :))
Would you believe me if I told you I'm in class right now?
I'm in class right now and would rather blog. Or sleep. Or both. Or eat. Or all three at once. Heck, I'd even rather go home and clean. Everything, and I do really mean everything, but coding sounds fun at the moment. Wish I had the the same level of enthusiasm for coding programs as I have for blogging and making blogskins. Actually, given how much I admittedly enjoy doing those things, I think even a miniscule fraction of a fraction of it would do me wonders. Good gravy, why do I just have to be so visual?

I hate how plain the CMD looks.
Most especially, I hate how I never need to use photoshop.

I love photoshop. We're like the best of buds.
I actually wouldn't mind as much if I still had the time for random edits but I often never have enough. And when I do insist on having random photoshop sessions in hopes of keeping myself sane, I suffer the consequences. It's not fair.|:

Well anyway, that's probably enough negativity for one day. Happy thoughts. :D

Earlier this morning, we finally had our JavaServer Pages report for Programming Languages and it went marvelously. I feel silly for even worrying as much as I did. Silly Joey. :)) I suppose this goes to show that, sometimes, the worst of things happen only in your head and things are never really as bad as they seem. :))

I Want My Own Domain


I guess from now on, I'll make a habit out of posting pictures of places I'd rather be. :D
Hey there, you! :D Top of the evening.
I reckon you noticed the layout change. :D

Not quite though with it, I'm afraid.

 
How I planned it.

Turn out.

I haven't changed much of anything and it's rending me unrulingly insatiable. But it's best that I let it lie since I've been working on it since noon. It's nearing midnight now; I think I've done enough editing for today. Nothing much going on tonight besides realizing how irksome I find Nuffnang ads to be. Hippidy-moo.

An entire day free of all academic obligations and I waste it away doing this. It's all too awfully upsetting, really. But yeah, bygones.

I can tell it'll be a rather stressful week from here on end.

Zombie Apocalypse

I honestly think I'm way too excited for my own good. HAHA.
Good evening, everyone. I am Joanna and I will be attending a debut tomorrow. :)

It's Liane's birthday and yay, I got a dress for the occasion. :D

Well, it's later, since it's almost 2am. But it still feels like it's tomorrow so I'm sticking with that; I insist it's not the 7th of November yet untill I go to sleep.

This time, I'm making extra sure that I get photographic coverage. THE CAMERA'S CHARGING. :D And having had said that, I can assure you that there will be tons of pictures on their way. :D No, I will not tell you the color of my dress; you'll have to be patient like everybody else and wait till I upload the pictures tomorrow. :)

HAHA, I'M SO MEAN.
But oh goody, I feel so much like I'm in that 'Extreme Makeover' show and even I myself am waiting for the grand unveiling. This is all really too exciting.

Rainmeter Revamp

I find too many ways to waste my time.
For the whole of today, the only thing I've done is work on this.


But heck, I had fun. :D
Good evening! :)
And now, with all distractions set aside, I shall now proceed to doing the things I've been meaning to do.
I must be the best procrastinator of all time.

A Futile Attempt to Be Healthy


I plan to scavenge though the entirety of the storage room and of basically the whole house for crayons I will never probably use and do this. I will not rest until I've searched every nook and cranny and have nothing possibly turnable left unturned for all of these shades. And if I so happen to lack any, I will buy myself a brand new crayon set just for the very sake of it. MARK MY WORDS, I WILL DO THIS. Eventually. Hahahaha. And then, I shall finally have a beautiful piece to hang up on the wall. :D I'm rather brilliant, aren't I? :3 LOL.

I'm on my laptop this fine morning cause I want to share with world how much of a fail I am. HAHA. So, get this. I just got back from a morning jog and guess what? 5 minutes into it and I was walking, panting like the unhealthy slab of meat that I am. LOL. Unfortunately enough, the exact same thing happened last night when I attempted to jog on the spot. 5 minutes, I lasted for only yet another measly 5 minutes. I feel oh so horribly unfit right now. Good gravy.

See that? Good gravy. I've gotten so unhealthy that even my expressions have become somewhat related to food. LOL. Pity, pity. Although, I will not deny the fact that I am tremendously proud of myself for having even jogged at all. It might not be much but hey, at least I've started somewhere, yes? :D 5 minutes + 5 minutes = 10 minutes of awesome. I think I'm good. :D Hahahaha. :3

Getting a diet partner would certainly help; I'm all too easily demotivated when it comes to these things. Being the 'googler' (Haha) I am, I've read through fitness articles and I found this one to be particularly encouraging, and not to mention amazing adequate. It was rather reassuring to know that Kristen's, the writer of the said post, first jogging session lasted for only about 10 seconds. Heck, I'm not so healthy after all. HAHA.

Well, I suppose all's going quite splendidly. I'll start afresh tomorrow and, if my body's able, maybe I'll up my jogging time to 10 minutes or so. :D I wonder how I'll keep this up once the new semester starts; I'm rather loaded. With 28/30 units, I expect to be constantly knee deep in school work. I guess I may otherwise need to cut down on my internet time. But I suppose it won't be so bad. I still have my Sundays; I could always blog then. :D School feels so fancy with the online enrollment finally set up.


Oh hey, look at that. I still only have 25 units. I forgot that I haven't loaded my Calculus yet. But if I did, I'd actually have 30 units since it's a 5 unit subject. 25 + 5 is apparently, according to me, 28. HAHA. Math fail. And I call myself a Computer Science student. Haha. I'm not even sure if it'll be available this semester so I might need to take it up in summer or maybe even in third year. So, without Calculus, I guess it won't be so bad after all. :D

I don't know if I should be too proud of myself but I vandalized my wall. LOL.
Those who have read my previous post should know that I had just finished painting my walls a gorgeous crisp white. Well, it's not exactly done just yet but it's good enough. I can bare having 1/5 of the room left unpainted until summer when I will probably start work on it again.

Since I was generally just really too much of a cheapskate bum to spend money on any proper wall decoration, lol, I came up with the extraordinarily ingenious idea of doodling on it. For most of my life, I've been doodling. I doodle on my books, I doodle on my worksheets, I doodle on my exam papers. And hey, how much different could it be doodling on my wall? HAHA.

I promise pictures of it when I'm through. :D
And I randomly present you results from a personality survey I recently took.
Good gosh, I love these things, lol. I don't know if there's actually any truth in this but hey, I still pretty much enjoy taking them. Haha.

Slumber awaits for I actually had only under 4 hours of sleep.
Lol, I'm so abusive for forcing myself to jog anyway.


Introspective
You like your own company; you're a very interesting person. Tracking your own mental processes, knowing what you're thinking and why you do what you do, is important to you. Often, what's going on in your mind is more compelling than what's going on outside. For the most part, those with a high score on the "introspective" trait enjoy reading, taking long walks, learning new things, and other solitary activities.

You are not someone who is constantly looking to be among a group of friends; you never feel bored when you are by yourself.

Sympathetic

You have a knack for knowing what's going on in the hearts and minds of those around you, without their having to tell you explicitly. People tend to turn to you with their problems because they know you care, and that you will likely offer good advice and a helping hand.

You do not feel that people with sad stories are just looking for attention, or have brought their problems upon themselves.

Warm

You have a genuine interest in other people. You're a natural host, and are always thinking about how you can increase the happiness of those around you. When friends have problems or are in trouble, you're usually the first person they turn to for aid and comfort. Scoring high on the "warm" trait suggests that you are among those who enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.

You don't always say exactly what you're thinking; you don't like the idea of causing anyone pain because of your criticism.


Tender
You are gentle with others, both physically and emotionally. You are careful not to upset people and go out of your way to find the nicest way to say something. You naturally focus on the fact that the world is full of wonderful people, places, and things. More often than not, people with a high score on the "tender" trait enjoy spending time with children, love romantic movies, and are enthusiastic about making the world a better place.

You don't think of yourself as tough-minded or gruff, nor do you need to be seen as some kind of objective source of truth and rationality.

 Empathetic

You are in touch with your own feelings, which helps put you in touch with the feelings of others.

You don't buy the logic that your happiness comes ahead of everyone else's because unless you're happy you're incapable of making anyone else happy.

Creative
You are good at solving problems, coming up with original ideas, and seeing connections between things, connections that most other people miss. People with a high score on the "creative" trait often are employed in such fields as finance and scientific research, and enjoy avant garde and classical music as well as literary fiction and scholarly non-fiction.

You do not shun abstractions and concepts in favor of the concrete and tangible.

Sandpaper Castle

Lol, the title's so random. 
Hi there, fellow earthling. :D How you be? :D
Would you like to hear some good news? 

MY LAPTOP'S FIXED AND I'M A HAPPY JOANNA. Hahahaha.
I shall try to not mislead you with forced zest cause to be quite honest, I am dead tried at the moment. But nevertheless, I'm still just as happy. :)

I got it back from the repair shop just yesterday and after having to exhaust the very fiber of my being of whatever patience for a screen-less laptop I had left, I thought it would be only proper to work on a few pictures. :D  




They're anything but impressive, as you can see. Turns out I wasn't really in the mood to edit. Lol. I even went on ahead and started on a blog design. But even that eventually wore me out. Here's how I left it.


Unfinished and bare.

As for the whole day today, I've done nothing but work on the room. You can only imagine how horribly fatigued I am at the moment. For two straight days, I've been continually painting the walls of the master bedroom and it's hardly any fun. I've always acknowledged wall painting as a fun activity, and I still kind of think it is. But it just seems like such a chore when you're left it do it all on your own.

I will spare you the details of what I've labored today but I could sum it all up for you in a single sentence. I have learned how to patch up holes and have regained respect for the marvel that is sandpaper. :D HAHA.

Judging by how things look, I'd say I'm 60% done. I still need to buy another can of primer and a tub of joint compound or putty or whatever you call it for repairs on the wall I've slightly destroyed. LOL.

I didn't quite destroy it exactly. I just kind of chiseled holes in it in an attempt to even the wall out. It had awkward dents that just had to go. And now, I need putty to fill them out cause the putty I had in storage dried up in its tub. 


They're not too big; nothing I can't fix. Although, it would certainly pay for me to have those automatic sander machine things. I wish I knew were I could rent one; it'd make my life heaps more easier. I've wounded my fingers from too much manual sandpapering. 

I feel so handy, doing all these things. HAHA. :3 

For the wall designs, I haven't quite decided on what should be done. I've a few ideas in mind but I'm frankly too spent to start blogging about any of them now. 

Maybe next time cause, goodness me, I need to rest.

Jelly-yum!

Strangely, I've been extremely attracted to sparklers lately.


I would like to start off this post with a declaration that
I AM A GLUTTONOUS BEAST.
HAHAHAHAHA.

Besides music, food and maybe a worthy book, jello is good for the sooooooul. It wiggles and it jiggles and it makes my tummy go MMMMMMMMMM. :3
And my statement is invalid cause jello is still technically a kind of food. HAHA.

Why, hi there, living organisms who can read. How are you doing today? :D
The reason behind that declaration up there would be because I've been home all day watching movies and giving in to my voracious tendencies. LOL.


Movies I've Already Watched



Movies To Watch




Movies I Tried Watching But Couldn't Cause 
They Bored The Wits Out Of Me


Maybe cause it wasn't really 3D, I don't know. LOL. And, in addition to that, I watched an entire anime season earlier today.


In any case you can't read kanji, and it's most likely you can't, that reads Baka To Test To Shoukanjuu Ni. You're a disgrace to all of mankind for not knowing how to read Japanese kanji. A DISGRACE, I SAY! D< Lol, but it's okay. Neither can I. LOL.

You can't get any bummier than this. Hahaha.

Right now, I lust for three things.
1. A sewing machine
- I've always secretly wanted this. I've secretly wanted to secretly sew and secretly alter clothes secretly, in secret. HAHA. But really though, secret or not, I want to make things that I can wear. Or, you know, at least fix whatever I am already wearing.

2. An oven
- Now, what's better than making things that you can wear? Yes, that's right. Making things that you can EAT. Again, I am a gluttonous beast. Hahahahaha. I want to bake! I want to make cakes, cupcakes, pastries of sorts!

3. A DSLR camera
- I want to take pictures and not feel like I still have to edit them. My digicam is alright but it just can't compare and its battery life oftentimes just renders it completely useless. It's either this or a phone with a camera that has at least 8 megapixels.

AND OH, MY CLASSMATES HAVE BLOGS! :D
Besides Jessie, Stefi and JV now have blogs as well.

Visit them if you will, they're awesome people. :D

World Palace and Insolent Bees

Hello there, earthling.
A fair morning, I bid thee. :)


If in my lifetime I get to personally see a sky with that magnitude of beauty, my life will be complete. :D

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAI.
Last night, I attended Gabee's debut party at World Palace. Never did I know such place existed till just then. From the outside, it must've been the grandest KTV bar thing I've ever seen in my life. Although, of course, I haven't really seen much of anything but still, it was the grandest KTV bar thing I've ever seen in my life, in Davao.



It also had a pretty inside but, unfortunately, these were the only presentable enough pictures of the place I could scout off the net. Poo. |: They had aquarium and everything; very fancy.

I met up with good old friends, sang a little in the background and maybe danced a little as well.
I do not understand how I forget to bring my camera to parties like this. It has always been that frustrating instance with me when I become aware of its existence only when I'm already halfway to the place. I could have snapped pictures.

Oh hey, the rooms were awesome. Gabee booked the 'Clouds' room and, to my amusement, it was designed quaintly coherent to its name. They had swirly clouds for cushions and the walls were painted a brilliant blue. Even the walls were padded with cushion-y fluffs. I wanted to sleeeeep there. Hahahaha.

And oh yes, the aquariums! They had goldfishes, catfishes, I think, and other fishes that go glub glub. Haha. Forgive me for my knowledge on these aquatic friends is evidently limited. But yes, unless they've, unbeknownst to me, evolved, enabling them now to make different sounds, I'm quite positive that whatever the fish, they still pretty much go glub glub. LOL.

I got stung on the arm by a bee. ):

In other news, in my needless struggle with what I should do in my life, I have decided to do one thing.


The thing is, the only thing I've ever been passionate about is staying happy. It's all I've come to know. And, lol, plenty of things make me happy. Maybe I should make muffins for a living. :D

I feel retarded to have had used the word 'thing' in the same sentence twice.

Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
Who lives in Drury Lane?

Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,

The muffin man's a she!

IT'S ME! HAHAHA. :D
Setting jokes aside, I think I might take up visual communication. I've thought long and hard about this and I'm convinced that it's something that I indubitably want to spend my whole life doing.

It's honestly rather difficult for me to make a concrete decision on this matter cause, as of now, I see my current course as a challenge. And good golly, I could never back down from a challenge. HAHAHA, kidding. I just feel really bad giving up on it.

I don't know. I should probably, if I'm able, finish this course before pursuing anything else. I've already come this far, why must I put it all my efforts to waste, yes? :D

You know, I should never ever never fall asleep on a sad thought. And neither should anyone else, lol.
It weaves me such distressing dreams. Funny thing is, I don't even know if they're premonitions or if it's just my paranoia acting up and I hate that I cannot tell the difference. D:

BUT ANYWAY.
Tomorrow, I'll be accompanying Jez to have her hair done at some salon I've never before gone to. While she gets her hair colored and straightened, I will most probably pay to get my hair splodged with green hair dye. :D


HAHA, only joking. I could never pull that off. LOL.
I shall run on along now.

I suppose I'll head to Abreeza today and take a picture of that restaurant I've been just dying to blog about. I could have blogged about it anyway though, without pictures, but I don't think I'd be doing justice to the place. AND SO, I SHALL GET MY PICTURES AND I WILL TELL YOU GUYS ABOUT HOW AWESOME IT IS.

Cause capitalization is for emphasis and I simply cannot emphasize my point enough. LOL.
If I can't take the pictures today, well, there are other days. Hahaha.

TOODLES! :D
And oh, I'm working on a duet with Aaron at the moment. It's so strange listening to the song with just half the duet piece playing. HAHA. Also, I'm reading Almost Perfect by Dianne Blacklock. After a month void of absolutely any reading material, I've got tons of reading to catch up on.

Progress Report


Conclusion: I'm always depressed.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Well, anyway, a splendid evening to everyone.
You could probably guess, I'm still working on the game. It's been going on for days now and, admittedly, I've allowed myself to become significantly antisocial because of it. Day in and day out, for the past several days, I am cemented in front of my laptop, trying to figure out bits and pieces of the code to the best of my abilities.

LOL. It's consciously mentally draining and I will not lie, right now, I'd rather be doing a whole bulk of other things.



Progress Report:
Oh joy, lol.
  • I've come to terms with how to work with classes. YAY. 
  • I still haven't gotten the battle frame to work properly but I'm basically through with everything else. LOL. Which, surely, would still amount to nothing cause the battle scene is what the game's all about.

Let me not continue to bore you with technicalities. Cause, lol, I'm pretty much starting to bore myself as well.
But anyway, I thought of revamping the character design but I had just found out from Martin, our class president, that our defense will be tomorrow. Considering that I've yet to attend to the battling bit, I won't have much time to work on them as intricately as I want to.

Nevertheless, I took time off coding to try and recreate the blue mochi cause it's cute and I just had to. Besides, working on it for as long as I have, I needed the much deserved break.

Original Mochi

Redesigned 


It bothers me that I don't have enough time to work on the other mochis. As cute as the original mochis may be the way they are, they don't look as aesthetically pleasing against a gray backdrop.

OH WELL.

I should get back to coding; I'm running short on time. It's already due tomorrow and I still have major kinks to work out. Majorly major kinks. 

Anyway, bye! :D

Unabridged


At this point of time, I feel so much like a bird held in its cage, reluctantly against its will. It's a Monday today and I suppose I should be in school. I think. I'm not exactly sure.

Oh heck, I'm awful at keeping track of things. |: Exam week is here and it's presumably the most stressful, hectic week a college student could possibly have in the semester. And yet, here I am, blogging, worrying only about not having enough time to sleep. Should I be concerned? Haha.

Anyway, throughout the entire day I've been confined in this teeny tiny room of mine, I've been urging myself to work on my mochi project. I mentioned it in my previous post and within the time span from when I posted that up till now, there has been absolutely no progress whatsoever. LOL.

I find it so easy to disappoint myself sometimes. It doesn't take much, really, cause I don't have much reason not to be. DEPRESSHION. HAHAHAHA. But, you know, it's the truth. I'm aware that I shouldn't be feeling down and that I have plenty other reasons to be all hippity-hoppity everywhere. Come to think of it, my reasons to be happy might even outweigh those of which are pro-depression. But there comes a time, not often but every once in a while, when you've got to just let yourself feel these things. Why? Because having to continually cheer yourself up is too tiring.

I hate how I can never feel much passion for anything. All my life, not once can I recall a time I could say that I am good at something because I have grown with it through passion. One thing I've long yearned for is just, passion, for anything. I'm passive, I always have been. And I'm through with it.

I'm all sorts of upset now.
Lately, I've lost so much of myself to my low self-esteem and this seemingly congenital need to please everybody.

I'll go have some cookies.
They've always had a quaintly magical effect on me.
I always feel better when I have cookies.
And since I'm trying to shed pounds, I shall get oat cookies.
Oh, the dietary goodness.

In my dire attempt to lighten up this post, read this.


Sometime in the near future, if someone were to plummet off a ladder or something, know that I shall be the first person to run on over there, fall on my knees and cry, "SOMEONE GET THIS MAN A BOWL OF NOTHING BUT BLUE M&M'S. NOW.".
Hahahaha.
Okay, haha. That was dreadful.

A Chronic State of Severe Wanderlust

Well, top of the evening to everyone. :D
I've gone quite a while without blogging and for that, I express my deepest apologies.
It's been a busy week and, to be rather frank, I have no idea where I'm to even begin.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I need to deal with this incessant obsession of honing these posts to perfection. It's honestly what keeps me from blogging as frequently. I intended to blog earlier today, and yesterday, and the day before that actually. But what kept me from even starting on anything was my constant worry of not having enough time to work on these posts of mine.

Just do it, Joanna. Just go for it.

It's considerably still a busy night so I'm afraid I'm going to have to cut this post short and present to you the highlights of my week. You know, only the important, significant bits. :D Let's work backwards.

Just yesterday, I hung out with Kong and Mich.



I'll edit in the details of our little adventure when I have the time but for now, these pictures should do. :D

The other night, I made this time lapse video of myself through the ages. LOL. It's basically a compilation of pictures of me since fourth year high till now.



Since I thought that turned out horribly, I started on a new time lapse project. I'll be taking a picture of myself everyday for the next year or so and I'll make a video quite similar to what we had up there. :D

Have you ever had mochis before?
Well, might I say that they're the most wonderful thing invented by man, EVER. Hahaha.
IT'S JAPANESE ICE CREAM. :D

Even the plastic they come in are cute. :D


Shishi and Thor first introduced them to me and I got all excited ever since. From the very first bite I took out of my first mochi, I fell in love almost instantaneously. HAHAHA.

My final java project is even inspired by mochis. :D


Coding it has been ridiculously draining. I'm still on it even up till now.
I haven't been working on the game these past two days though. I've been too preoccupied with learning how to solve a rubik's cube. Solving one would serve as our final examination for Discrete Mathematics.

I had the hardest time with it and I still basically am. I haven't gotten past the second layer yet. IT'S DEMORALIZING, HAVING TO DEAL WITH CONSISTENT FAILURE. LOL.

But hey, I succeeded in Joanna-ifying my cube. :)


It's gorgeous, I know. HAHA.
I should get back to my program.
It's not going to code itself.

A Happy Penguin

Hello dear blog, I had started playing Minecraft just minutes ago and it should come as to no surprise that I horribly sucked at it. LOL. A mere five minutes into the game and I fell into a hole. Poor pixelly man has no way out now and is doomed for the rest of his unfortunately misguided life; a life misguided by me. Haha. At least with him being in a hole, I'm causing him the least possible harm. Besides, of course, the probable chance of death by starvation. Yes, the least possible harm indeed. LOL. Pixelly man of le 'Awesome Universe', abandon all hope for survival cause I have absolutely no idea how to play this thing. LOL.

Thanks to that, I haven't the mood to continue playing. As I explained to Aaron, "The failure, I'm afraid, has proven to be too overwhelming". LOL.

I'M A HAPPY PENGUIN.


I'm a happy penguin with my happy flippers and my happy beak and my happy everything!
After so long, I finally got to talk to a very special cupcake again tonight. I owe it to Thor big time for urging me to start the conversation. It was the best decision I made all week, to be rather frank. AND NOW, HAPPY PENGUIN IS HAPPY. ♥

The butterflies in my tummy are making such a fuss. :3

Tomorrow, most likely in the late afternoon, I've plans to watch Johnny English with Shishi and Thor. I must say, I'm awfully excited about that. Can't say I'm too excited for my classes though. A boring morning at school is quite assured.

GIF OF THE DAY!


That probably had nothing to do with anything but it was too epic that I just had to post it. Haha. I could imagine my attempts to say this line in real life and miserably failing at it. With an actual cup of coke at hand, I'd probably end up laughing too much, spilling coke on myself instead. HAHA.

Anyhow, I'll be running off along now. I'm sleepy.

Badges, Facebook Integration and Tweaks

I really ought to be asleep at this time of night. But hey, what can I say? My insomnia has stuck yet again. I'm physically worn out but my mind's way too high on adrenaline, unceasingly rushing in its restless state. Oh brain, why won't you let me sleep?

Anyway, since I'm still up, I might as well go through the minor tweaks I've done on my blog.

Today, I've registered my blog on two blog directory sites, Blog Catalog and Top Blogs, and I'm still awaiting confirmation. Also, I've signed up for Nuffnang and am now being paid for every unique visitor I manage to get. I think. I don't really know how it works, to be honest. LOL. Well, that was a definite fail.

These registrations are the reason as to why I now have awesome badges up. I've always longed to get some and now that I have, you can only imagine how pleased I am with myself. Haha.


Besides the obvious loading panel thing I've set up, I had forced myself though the horrendously tedious process of integrating my blog with Facebook. Notice how I now have like buttons and Facebook comment plugins? I'll go over in detail what I did to accomplish this some other time.

I was at war with myself about the comments. Should I rely on the Facebook comment plugin entirely or should I utilize both the Facebook comment system and the Blogger comement system? What do you think?

Well, we'll have enough of that.

I chatted with Aaron earlier this evening and him worrying about looking good for prom motivated me enough to edit my face on my dream body. LOL. I did his too. I had them up but naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw. I quite frankly would rather not have anyone else see them. They're too ridiculous for the internet. Haha.

We're such bored people. Anyway, I should get going. Unlike my brother and all other fortunate highschool and gradeschool students of Ateneo, I have class later; all us college students do. Life's but fair, I say.

I've edited some of my scans last month and, even now, it still amazed me how lovely I think they turned out.



I'll be coloring Martin's drawing next.
I often wish my course was equally as fun as this.
Contrary to programming, I could actually stand to do this for a living.

I'm a Hufflepuff


I am AshHorn44 and I am a Hufflepuff.
You can't get any better than that.
No, actually, you most certainly can. Haha.
I should have been in Gryffindor.

Oh, sorting hat, dear sorting hat, you think you know everything.
I'm afraid you've made a grave mistake about this one; about me.

Aaron's in Gryffindor.
Daniella's in Gryffindor.
Mark's in Ravenclaw.
Jessie's in Ravenclaw.
Clydie is, most likely, in Ravenclaw as well.
And I'm in Hufflepuff. |:
WOE IS ME.

In any bizarre case you're not a Harry Potter fan, for reasons I would never understand, please allow me to bore you as I rattle on about Hogwarts' business, you incompetent muggle.

Haha, only joking. Muggles are love. Sort of. LOL. Them ordinary folk, pshaw. Hahaha.

Hufflepuff is currently the house with the most number of members but even so, we remain to have the least amount of points.
And to think having the largest population amongst the other three should come as an advantage, but noooo. Hufflepuff houses people of too little care to even give the slightest snot about even winning this thing. Fishsticks. |:
We're done for, I tell you. DONEEEE FOR.


Anyway, moving on along now.
I've come to accept the inevitable; we positively won't be winning any house cups soon. Maybe when the Wizard's Duel feature is up and running again, things will get better.
There is hope for us yet. :D

Haha, look at me making such a fuss over Pottermore.
Quaintly endearing, isn't it? HAHAHA.

I'd brew potions to help earn house points but it just takes too long to make them; up to almost two, almost three hours even. I'm sorry Rowling, but I have my life to live. LOL.

I can't wait till they're done with the second book.
Take it from me, Pottermore is quite the experience. It's Harry Potter like you've never seen before.

If you have an early access account, I'm AshThorn44, let's be friends! :D
If not then, let's be friends all the same. Haha.

Pottermore will be taking in regular registrations some time in October.
For those who haven't accounts yet, see you then! :D
HUZZZZZAAAAH.
