Why do I even bother keeping this laptop with me? While waiting for my next class, it spent 40 minutes processing, and kept me second guessing whether to restart it or not. Hm. Should've restarted at first. 40 minutes of waiting -- for launching Chrome. It's that slow. It's that bad. Maybe the sentimental value of my Acer laptop keeps it worthwhile. It's 7 years old. That's a lot of memories. Men are like that. Take for example an old car, for us, it's hard to simply get rid of it.
It's official. My schedule sucks. I don't like my winter term. Mondays are loaded, Tuesdays mean work, and I'm also going home late during Wednesdays. Things are really simple if not for the winter weather. The temperature here is -26C and the windchill's -33C. It's really hard to go outside and enjoy the commute. Snow fell early, so I hope that winter ends early too. It's silly but I'm already counting the weeks 'til reading week.
The flu left me quite shaken. I've been coughing up blood in the past couple of days. It usually happens to me, but it doesn't take 3 or 4 days of blood-in-phlegm action! The strains of blood were very noticeable. Don't worry, it happens because the shallow blood vessels in the throat get damaged after a flu. Blood in phlegm is discharged every morning or evenings. And it can also happen when the air is very dry, the walls get dry and bruise easily. Winter is very dry. I asked my mom how much a dehumidifier is and she said it's around $200. I don't know why I asked, cause I don't have money anymore.
I talk like I have money. I haven't bought my books yet. And I have this crazy thought of buying a second laptop. Oh yeah, I did mention that I already bought a new one last boxing day. Maybe I should buy ANOTHER one to bring to school! My dad is also complaining about his HP laptop. Maybe I should buy him too. While I'm at it, I should buy my Acura CSX car and a plane ticket to Japan. What else? How much is Microsoft?
5:15pm. I have a class at 6pm. I'm coming home after 9pm. 6-9pm classes make me wish I could blink a bed in the classroom. Or better, blink my way home. 2 more years 'til I graduate. I hope it's not 3.
I know what you're thinking, "Where have you been?!" You're right, I've been thinking of the same thing. Happy New Year, everybody. Even though it's the 9th already. 2012 was really special, wasn't it? A lot of news here and there. And the world didn't end. Actually, nothing major happened at all in December 21st and the 22nd. I remember all those videos in Youtube, those shows in National Geographic, that one dedicated guy who's so sure the world would end on the 21st (poor guy)... so what happened to these advocates? Anyway.
Backtracking a bit, December 2012 was a candy of a month for me. Despite that I'm short on cash, because of my beloved tuition fee, I'm not sure how I was able to buy a drumset, a new laptop (Windows 8 isn't Windows), a 32" LED TV in my room, new shoes, a 3DSXL and a 39" LED TV as gift to my family. It's all thanks to God... and boxing day. So where have I been? You're probably thinking, "Kimi! You left the Shigure household roleplay hanging! There's no update for anything season related and there's still nothing new here!" You know what, my thoughts exactly. After all, I'm blogging what my mind is telling me now. And so I probably guessed what your guess is -- or what you're supposed to guess. But here I am now!
I've had about 12 days of break in my Christmas holiday. Not bad, huh? But there was no time to idle, because of all the parties, birthdays and events. I was also party planning, a lot of gift giving and a few times of gift receiving. Out of those 12 days, I had only 3 days of totally free time. And guess what happened to me during these 3 days. If you guessed that I got held up or kidnapped, you're probably right -- but no. After all those eating, singing and dancing, I got sick. In a sense, I got robbed from the common cold. After celebrating New Year's, the cold bug thought it was time to enter my body without permission. I shook my head from my disbelief last Saturday, the day I had to go back to work. I thought my 3 totally free days would be more meaningful than losing sleep and blowing off snot. Until now, I'm confused how I was able to survive that Saturday. Hard shift. And the odd thing is, I was productive last Saturday!
I never get the flu twice a year. My body shuts down only once a year. Which is good. My PE teacher told me that it doesn't matter how healthy a human being is, our body will shut down at least once a year and would get sick. But I really never get the cold or the flu twice annually. Thinking back, I got the flu in October 2012. And it's only January 2013. Still I can say that I only got the flu once in 2012, but again-- it's just two months since the last flu. Am I getting weaker? Well. Hope for the best I won't catch the colds this 2013 anymore!
My flu is not what I want to point out here. I guess it's time for me to get serious for at least one paragraph with this entry. I realized that even though I got so much stuff, that I bought myself all these nice eye candies, these toys, these gadgets, I missed what's important. I have two 32" displays in my room (for my PC and PS3), even though I have all the current handhelds sparkling on my corner, lots of gadgets and gizmos, let's say that my friends are jealous of me, even though I have these material blessings, they didn't do me any good when I was sick. Nothing seemed relevant to me. I realized that these materials shouldn't be my priorities. And slowly, I get what my priority is when I grow up. I think everyone's not that oblivious. As kids, we like to have toys. As teenagers, we want to have the latest gadget, maybe a relationship or even a car. Young adults want to have excitement, be in a meaningful job or move to their own apartment. As we grow up more, we start dreaming of realistic things like a career, earning a degree or having a lasting relationship. Some things start to become useless or vanities. I didn't even touch any of my toys when I was sick. It was hard for me to watch something, and it hurt my eyes. To be honest, I thought that playing a videogame would make me throw up during my condition. It was that bad. We should look for something more in life, because there is something more to life than money or things you can buy. We should look for things more valuable than fame or fortune.
I missed a lot of writing too. I know I missed a lot here. I meant until now, my ongoing stories are hanging where I left them two months ago. It's like I lost my motivation to write. I'm pretty frustrated. I shouldn't call myself a writer if I'm easily shot with procrastination -- and I'm getting good feedbacks for them too! Seriously, this has got to stop. I mean the procrastination.
It's 2013 and let's start making those dreams come true.
