Back from the dead…

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Think it’s about time I actually started keeping this blog up to date.  Going to try to turn commenting back on, hopefully it doesn’t get flooded with spam comments about prescription drugs like the last time.

Dirty worktopBeen keeping up with my photography hobby so far.  Overspent a bit on the figure purchasing, but it’s proving to be a fun hobby to snap pictures of them and collect them.  Spending a lot of time here and there checking up on Tsuki-board, the community there is pretty great and the database is pretty expansive.  I tried my hand at writing a couple of figure reviews this month; it can be kind of draining but at least I hope I’m contributing a bit and providing some additional info about those figures through images and words.

Right now I’m in save money mode, pretty much just spending money on food and other necessities until I can save up some money to splurge on a new lens or something.  So far I cancelled one figure pre-order, Kotobukiya’s Kasugano Sora.  Sad to see it slip out of my fingers but at the same time it was an impulse pre-order so I can probably do without it.

Anime-wise so far this new season has been pretty dismal but I guess we’ll see as the season continues on; maybe some shows will start to pique my interest a bit more.  Arakawa Under the Bridge seems to be showing promise in a Gag Manga Biyori type of way, and of course there’s the new season of K-ON!!.  There’s a few other shows I’ll probably keep watching, maybe something interesting will happen.  I guess I’m just kinda sad to see some of the shows from last season end, like Nodame Finale and Bakatest.  If anything proves to be good enough maybe I’ll start blogging about a couple of shows.

Work-wise things have been busy, but I guess that’s good.  Stress is starting to get to me a bit but hopefully when things start slowing down (hopefully) I’ll be able to take some time off and relax.  Entered a charity golf tournament next month with some guys at work, hopefully my anxiety issues don’t bother me.  If they don’t that should be pretty fun.  I told them to give me a 20 handicap…I wonder if that could be considered sandbagging >:D.

I need to get around to sorting all the music in my collection, haven’t updated my Zune in months and I keep forgetting to use the 10 monthly credits from my Zune pass.  Been playing my drums pretty much everyday but I need to start playing along to some harder songs.  Dusted off my guitar a bit and started learning 「私の恋はホッチキス」 from K-ON!.  It’s proving to be a fun distraction.

Art-wise, been doodling a bit here and there.  It’s not a priority so I guess that will do for now.

I probably won’t be updating this blog daily or anything, but if anybody is reading this, expect updates at least a couple of times a week.

Bought a cactus, it’s pretty cash.

Other than that, been a pretty lazy sunday.

New toy…

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

Looks like I’m poor again, just got a new toy.  I must admit though, it’s a pretty good one.  Here’s hoping I continue to use it in the future, maybe start a photo blog or something.  Sample taken with my new toy below.

Need to get back into shape

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Been gaining fat lately, not so much weight.  The extra mass in my midsection has been putting pressure on my stomach when I slouch so I should probably work towards getting rid of it.  Figure I’d keep track of my exercise since I’m not really blogging about anything.

  • 2 x 8min. |  exercise bike
  • 2 x 20 | crunches
  • 2 x 15 | pushups
  • 1 hour | practice drums (better than sitting in a chair surfing the web)

Time on the bike will increase as the days go by.  In the meantime, expecting a new guitar pickup and another cymbal for my drumset by courier tomorrow.   Should be fun.

Oh shi-
