First, something unrelated to the post. My sister opened her own blog: Tanya Natazsha.

And now, onto the post!!

About three or four years ago, a sempai of mine introduced me to The Sims, the first one where the people or “sims” never age. It’s a great game, but more than controlling the sims, i liked making the houses.

And then I discovered The Sims 2. It had better graphics, nicer furni, and the sims actually grow older and propagate. Back then there was only the base game, the nightlife expansion and the university expansion. A month after i started playing The Sims 2, I decided to stop. I stopped because I got so addicted to it, i started dreaming of my sims.

Three years later, and here I am again, playing Sims 2 (I would play The Sims 3 I have a feeling my ratty computer would explode if I tried to play it). I blame Jung Yong Hwa,  Seo Joo-Hyun and the show We Got Married. During some episodes the Build/Buy Mode (mode where you build/buy houses/furnitures, duh) would play that I would just craaaave playing it. Eventually I just gave up fighting it and bought new installers for the game, and not just the base game either. Now I’ve got all the expansion packs and stuff packs (I need the Ikea Stuff pack. The one I bought won’t work.)

So now my waking hours are divided into three, playing with my nephew (Kitty gave birth last September 18. How horrible izzit that my youngest sister get to have babies before me -_-“), trying to finish that damn story i promised my friends in Cavite, and playing The Sims 2 or downloading custom items/clothes/etc for it… but mostly playing Sims 2.

The point of this post? Nothing. Just wanted to say I’m playing The Sims 2.

Some demon must’ve possessed me last week. It’s the only explanation. I dunno what happened, one minute I was browsing through sites, looking for new arashi videos I could download, and the next… I had signed up myself with five penpal communities.

Bonkers! I must be completely bonkers! I can’t have penpals! I don’t even know how to write letters to my own friends, much more to people I haven’t met!

But… so far so good. I have about four snail mail penpals and one email penpal. I think I’m doing well with the email one… The only problem is that I get impatient when I don’t have new mail. The snail mail ones… I still haven’t written a single letter to any of them… I better get started this weekend.

On a different note, Nino-chan and Nagasawa Masami broke up? Yes… again. And rumors say it’s because Nino cheated… with who i wonder?

Five or six days ago, more or less, i discovered Stephen King’s On Writing audio book version in the world of torrents, which I haven’t been to since my internet connection at home went “poof!”  I love audio books, its my new obsession. I got Robert Matheson’s I am Legend, and… well, as of now its all that i have. I couldn’t think of anything else to look for. I am planning to download Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice from Project Gutenberg but I got distracted by seek and find games.

Anyway, Stephen King’s On Writing is an entertaining book and coming from me, with my notorious short attention span, this means something. I thought it was like a text book, like it contained tips on writing from cover to cover but apparently, it was a memoir of Stephen King. Well, I liked it and it got me thinking about writing again.

I think its been almost six months since I tried to finish any of my numerous pending works, partly because I get so distracted by it that I mess up with work even more than I usually do and partly because I got stuck and i didn’t know where any of my stories are going to. And now, because of that one audio book i thought “hey, maybe I can get it going again.”

Well, I can’t.

This is still my fault. I lack the drive to write. I want to but I don’t want to because if I really, really want to I would stop typing this post and get back to writing but I’m not. I keep thinking that I’m sleepy or that I have a lot of videos I haven’t watched and I really want to know what happens next to the latest tv series im obsessed with or that I have a new game I need to test. Excuses, excuses, excuses.

I think it’d be easier to write if my “muses” are here. The original inspiration for the stories I’ve been writing but even if I get to remember what I used to feel when I started writing them, it only last for a moment and then its gone.

So… i thought if I can’t get myself inspired enough to write then I’d read. I got lined up Dan Brown’s Lost Symbol, Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi’s Spiderwick Chronicles (which turns out to be one book divided into five), and the Robert Matheson audio book.

I need suggestions! What do I read next?!


Want a copy of the audio books i mentioned and the ebooks (.PDF) of any of Dan Brown’s books, or the spiderwick chronicles? Leave a message with your email, I’ll try to send them to you.

I haven’t been blogging for some time now. My last blurb about my life was after new year i think. Well, the job thing didn’t work out. My sister Kittie decided to get knocked up so now we need to get them married. I wouldn’t have wanted to get them married (my parents got married because my mom was preggy with me and that ended really, really [insert proper sarcastic word here]) but they wanted to so now they’re getting married and we have to pay for it because the dude isn’t the richest guy out there, actually he’s completely poor there’s no money to his name or his family’s name. Well, there goes my plans for going back to school.

My other sister, Friday, decided to go back to our house, have I said that before? So, when Kittie moved out of our room, Friday, moved in. I’m never having that room to myself.

My internet at the house went ‘kaput’ so I’m back to internet shops. There’s this netcafe that’s near our house which has this sort of a ‘deal’ where you pay P300 for an account and you get to spend only P10 per hour. I could download fine before, play facebook and habbo at the same time but now for some reason MediaFire wont work, so I’m stuck to downloading with MegaUpload which is really slow compared to my downloading from MediaFire.

I’m still into Arashi, mostly because my sisters are still into Arashi. Haiz, I would never underestimate my ability to hook other people with funny and cute boybands again.

I recently found out that Ace had stopped being an Arashi fangirl. She wrote something about a fandm drama but I guess we all have to stop looking at pretty boys on tv eventually and start looking at pretty boys in real life. Me? I’m not ready to give them up. 😀 I would like to fangirl for a little while more.

The “ghost” or whatever in our house came back. We have this “pet” we call it who takes stuff in our kitchen and puts it somewhere else, like “The Borrowers.” I’ve never experienced it though, only my dad and Friday and I think once even Kittie did (they saw my doppelganger several times, they said).. Me, the horror movie, slightly gothic girl, I have no experience with it.

Anyway, our “pet” has developed a talent in opening the stove, and it’s not easy to turn it on too. You have to push it in first and then turn it, it’s a safety issue. Friday already told us about the stove before. She said she passed by the stove once, when she came back it was already on. This week, Kittie texts me from Manila saying I should come home from work at 9am in the morning because Friday was going hysterical. Apparently, she was holding the pan above the stove to cook her breakfast (she was alone in the house) when the stove turned on infront of her. She stepped back and thought maybe she imagined it or maybe she was going crazy but when she realized that the stove was, indeed, open and burning, she turned it off and ran to our room upstairs.

That night, my dad’s airconditioner and fan turned on. The next day my dad said the stove turned on again. The day after that Friday says the fan in her room turned on by itself twice.

I’m not really sure if I believe this. I’ve never experienced this before, usually when I see an appliance open I think, “Oh i forgot to turn it off” so I can’t really relate.

Well, that’s all for now! Ciao!

I am by no means giving up Arashi as my main source of sanity, I only added another one. It’s not like I’m the only one, I mean, a lot of people are doing facebook these days, i found most of my high school classmates in it. But I guess it’s only strange for me because I do facebook because of the games. 😀
Hey, petville, and restaurant city, and cafe world, and all those other nice games are very entertaining… anyway if you play them too leave your name, I’ll find you :DDDDD

The moment it struck 12 on new year’s eve I thought, I need a new job, which is weird because my dad had been badgering me to get a new job for about two years. I guess the reality has finally caught up with me. There is no progress in my current job and I need more.

So I thought, hey, since we’re going wild let’s look for a job abroad! Away from everything we’ve been living with! And luckily there was this banner near my workplace about some Language Center looking for Factory Workers in Korea. Hmmm… Korea, I luv Korea! It’s not Japan but I can live in Korea. ‘Course I thought it was strange that a Language Center would be recruiting workers but what the hey!

The day before the Orientation for the Korea job, I decided to look into the POEA website and check the Language Center for its license… it had none. It was only licensed by TESDA to teach Korean but no recruiting. There also isn’t any Factory Worker jobs listed in the POEA database. Crap! There goes my plan. Edit: also apparently, you need to be able to SPEAK korean in order to get a job in Korea, hence the language school’s chutzpah to hold an orientation for future korean workers.

I guess I need to try that Call Center job my aunts and well, practically everyone, has been telling me to apply to. The only problem is that I can’t speak English. I can write well, but speaking is something else.


Anyways… Akimashite Omedetou Gozaimasu mina!

Uh… hi…

I’m a horrible blogger… My last post was a 2008 recap of Arashi’s activities and then I disappeared completely off the face of wordpress.. haiz

Sorry, I was having a personal crisis, battling with my own insanity. I’m not completely back yet. Maybe next year, I still need to fix the parts of me that I can still salvage.

Anyway, I just wanted to put another post here so that I’d at least have ONE post for 2009 before it ends…
