I have absolutely no idea what I've done for myself in past couple of weeks. Remember going to my friend's wedding, but nothing after it. Work was (surprisingly) busy. Just finished my 2-day training on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. It was boring, but allowed me to come home early and have a speedy recovery from my regular Monday syndrome. (Downton Abbey helped a lot with that as well!)

Wanted to update about a lot of things but nothing interesting is happening. Sometimes I think I have this paid account for nothing. LOL.

I should update my scrapbook and get ready for the "end of year review" post I'll do on Friday! (or Saturday.) Last year's was so much fun!

Started watching Hawaii Five-0. It's delightful! ♥ I love Danny and adore the Danny/Steve dynamic. Also Grace Park, you have the most beautiful smile and Kono is badass. I'm still towards the end of Season 1 so no spoilers please.

I haven't written a single word for 3 weeks (maybe more, not sure), it's bad. I thought I was done with my writer's block. I guess it's not that easy.

Also, I'm reading all of your entries, but too lazy to comment on all, sorry if you think I'm one of your invisible friends, I am not, I promise! I just don't know what to say most of the time. *hugs you all*

People keep asking me what I'm doing for new year's eve and my answer is "nothing, hanging with the family" as usual. It's not like I want to go out and spend it with a bunch of strangers in a stuffed club, but it feels weird after sometime to tell people I have NO PLANS for ANY SPECIAL DAY EVER.

Meeeh, whatever.

Oh and merry belated Christmas to all! I'm more active on Twitter so I usually forget to celebrate special days on here. Oh LJ, why can't I use you more frequently? Why? I think it's the downtime issue. Hopefully it won't happen again anytime soon. I love LJ and I really don't want to leave here even though I'm barely around as it is.
thelake: (himym: yeah no shut up)
Here is a quick update:

- Downton Abbey owns my soul.
- How I Met Your Mother's return brought me much joy and excitement.
- The Playboy Club is immensely stupid.
- I seriously felt my blood boil at the office today. It was intense and unpleasant.
- People are really lucky that I didn't get up and just murder someone.
- I had an annoying headache all day and my boiling blood didn't help at all.
- I now know how it feels to unreasonably hate someone and I don't like it one bit.
- It's not even a love-hate situation. It's pure hate.
- I'll go to the hospital with mom tomorrow, just to accompany her. Nothing serious, it's just she doesn't want to go to the doctor alone anymore, I think she's getting older.
- But if there's something more serious that she's not telling me, then I probably won't think twice before cutting a bitch.
- Tell me where I can find pretty Downton Abbey icons.

>> My vacation is over, I'm back at work and at a complete loss. I have no idea what I was supposed to before I left for vacation. Oh well, it'll come to me, I'm sure.

>> Vacation was pretty boring after 3 days, but I got a very nice tan so I'm happy.

>> One thing I missed the most during my vacation is the Game of Thrones posts on both ONTD and ONTD_asoiaf. How lame of me, right? NO, YOU'RE WRONG. THEY'RE AWESOME.

>> I hate my hair today. Woke up early to straighten it, did so and as soon as I turned of the straigthner it went back to being all wavy and crappy. Oh hair, why are you doing this to me? We used to get along so well! It's the freaking humid weather, I know it.

>> I'm contemplating on buying a ticket for the last HP movie. I will either go alone on Wednesday or wait forever for someone to come with me and end up not going. So yeah. Let me check if there's still empty seats for the 7pm showing on Wednesday. I can go directly after work. It might be fun... Yup, there are plenty of empty seats EVEN ON THE MIDNIGHT SHOWING ON TUESDAY NIGHT. I'm so tempted to buy a ticket for the midnight, but also I'm pretty sure I'll fall asleep before the movie ends, so not gonna risk it.

>> Just ordered the paperback copies of the first two books on A Song of Ice and Fire series. First one is for archiving purposes, second one is for me to read properly because I got so tired of trying to read it on my iPhone.

>> It's like a thousand degrees outside, but I'm cold at the office. Hopefully I won't have a blinding headache today, because that's what happens every Monday.
thelake: (Default)

It's almost 3am here and i came back from work just half an hour ago. Stayed at the office for 16 hours, worked for 8, but it was the wrong 8. The project i'm currently working on is so badly managed i want to puke.
Whatever, i am leaving this Friday and coming back on July 11th, so i'm fine. Today counts as a sacrifice for a good vacation.
But next time i will say no. This post is a reminder.

Also, i love Game of Thrones. That is a fact.

★ I attempted to update here several times in these past weeks, but always felt like I didn't have anything substantial to say. Still feel like it, but whatever. All my f-list is updating and I'm afraid people will forget I exist and defriend me or something...

★ Been listening to Adele's Hiding My Heart for a couple of days and it's not doing me any good. I'm a bit disappointed in myself on the heart and feelings department and I've been feeling a little lonely for a while, so listening to Adele is like going on a suicidal mission willingly.

★ Another disappointment I had this week was the Bones season finale. Rest of this paragraph might still be spoilery for some of you, so I'll cut right here. )

★ How awesome is Game of Thrones? I love how it's critically acclaimed and epic and all that jazz. Of course it is, because it's not tv, it's HBO.

★ Remember the time I told you I was gonna start looking for another job? Hah. I'm doing NOTHING about it. Well, for my defense, there have been some major organizational changes in the company and now our department is a research and development unit which is awesome and means more money, so I'm hoping to get a piece of that pie.

★ Speaking of pie, I've gained so much weight it's insane. A coworker asked me if I gained weight before she said good morning (rude much?), so I take it as an emergency and start dieting. I'm not gonna starve myself, but I am also aware that I have been eating A LOT OF junk food and pastries lately. I quit. And I gotta start swimming. Summer is here. As soon as they put the sunbeds by the pool, I am there. I already have a natural lifesaver around my belly from eating too much cake. HA HA HA, not funny at all. I hate it. It feels like I have passed my prime and slowly falling into a pit of belly fat and boring days. I'm not obsessed with physical appearance, but I remember myself being all thin, fit and energetic and my current situation feels like shit to be honest. I need to change my ways and losing some of this weight will surely make me feel a bit better. Hopefully.

★ I believe I have sufficiently made your day a little bit more depressing, so mission accomplished. See you at my next post which will probably happen at a distant time in the future.
thelake: (random: TV)
I am in love with Game of Thrones. It started with "OOHH PRETTY SHOW!" and now I care about everyone (except Lannisters)! This will end bad, I know ;__;

I can't be happier on the TV front. This year has been really good so far.

Oh except Camelot. I can't seem to be interested in anyone over there. Everyone is either completely clueless, crazy or cruel. I don't like. I'll watch the latest episode and if that doesn't do it for me I'm out for good.

My work load is lighter! Hooray! I haven't done ANYTHING today and actually got away with it! REJOICE! :D

Got a haircut 2 weeks ago, but I'm too lazy to make it pretty every morning. I'm starting to regret that decision, but keeping it short gives me so much extra time during showers so I'll just shut up and go with the flow.

Everyone's catching a cold lately. I'm still in the safe zone, but afraid it won't last long. We're having really weird weather out here. It's rainy, cold, warm, humid, freezing, windy at the same time. I'm not even kidding. It's strange. It was really cold this morning so I said "what the hell!" and wore my turtleneck and the it suddenly got really hot and I was walking around with a black turtleneck like a stupid person. It's time to switch to "cardigans over t-shirts" phase.

Life's pretty boring in general. I'm planning or arranging a little get together with a couple of friends from college, but I'm too lazy to call people up and learn their schedules. I always end up making the plans and suffering from the consequences later, so I'm waiting for them to arrange stuff, but let's be honest, it'll never happen. *le sigh*

What should I watch now? I'm done with the 1st season of Shameless. Loved it towards the end. Looking forward to the new season next year. Also downloaded The Crimson Petal and The White just for Romola Garai. Is it any good?

I really want a Game of Thrones mood theme. I shall go back to my Legend of the Seeker set until someone decides to make a GoT one.

Work rant

thelake: (random: kermit bale final)
You've all heard this before, so feel free to ignore. I just need to get this out for myself.

Very very long rant. )

Now I'm gonna go and read Eisenfield porn.
thelake: (random: kermit bale final)
Finished the first set of humongous test results. The work day is practically done now.

I'm being obnoxiously talkative today, aren't I? I just feel like I need to let some stuff out or else I'll just go mad. Even sitting here is giving me cramps right now. I'm so done with this week, month, year, whatever. Take me home.
thelake: (himym: stinson)
I have 4 pages long of test results coming from the analysis department and I really have to finish them ASAP (like right now, at this moment), but do I care? Not today. Because today is what?

I haven't slept well last night. Several stuff might have screwed up my sleep, for instance:

- My brother leaving me all alone in the house and spending the night with his girlfriend although I asked him several times not to do that and even told him he could invite his girlfriend over. We're living in a duplex apartment for god's sake, you have enough privacy, why can't he just be nice and not leave me alone? )

- Watching The Middle before going to bed and not being able to stop watching even though it was way past midnight, hence not being able to wake up like a regular human being at 7:30am. The Middle is awesome though! )

- Finally falling asleep but forgetting to turn off the laptop so it played and played and played the same episode of Silk all night which kinda gave me weird dreams. I think I subconsciously watched the whole thing, I am not sure. British accent is probably carved in my brain forever.

But it's okay. I had coffee and a pretty nice lunch and I'm halfway through the test results. Hoping to finish this result set today and start another hugeass one on Monday. Oh Monday, your early level of obnoxiousness is admirable.

Yeah, I'm done. Gotta go back to work. I might be able to accomplish more stuff now that most of the office is out at lunch and my phone has never been this quiet since... last year.
thelake: (gg: cenk bas)
Today was really tiring.

I got out of bed really late because my alarm clock has broken and I cannot afford a new one at the moment.

I feel sad, because Sarah and Britney are complete bitches. They told everyone I have an STD, just because I slept with both of their boyfriends on Saturday night.

I'm so hardcore. Me and Buzz went to the mall today, and I stole a whole heap of stuff. I got a Good Charlotte CD, a couple of DVDs and some new boots. Buzz got caught, but he fought his way out, and then we stole some lady's car and smashed it into a phone booth.

Last night I had to shave my entire body. Apparently, the lice that I caught from Amanda's friend are really hard to get rid of. I look quite strange with no hair and eyebrows. I'd post pictures, but my webcam is broken.

I want to tell the world that my girlfriend Amy is the bomb! She made pizza last night, and even though I burnt my lips on the cheese, it was awesome!!!

I am updating this journal for the first time in ages, because I've been in prison.

Today, I got a digital camera! Yes! Here's some photos of my girlfriend in the nude (but don't tell her that I've posted them here - she'll kill me! Har har.)

I want to say thanks to the academy for giving me this award.

I went to the doctor yesterday, and he said I have bipolar disorder, which makes me different enough to be interesting, but the same as all the other cool people with bipolar disorder.

You should all do this quiz! It's amazingly accurate. You just put in your name and birthday, and it will tell you you're a moron.

That's enough for now. But I'll leave you with this poem I wrote. It's about my friend Robert, who has bipolar disorder. Just like me. And Heidi.

Do you really believe I've done all those stuff? Wow. )
thelake: (stock: kitty)
I've done absolutely NOTHING related to work today. Wrote a fic for [ profile] awakencordy, Harry/Draco, and spent my whole morning working on that while people were discussing more important matters right next to me. Yeah people, you work and I write slash! THAT'S LIFE!

This week is slowly becoming one of the best I've had this year. Yesterday, although it was a Monday, was AMAZING. I was productive, happy, grateful for my job, friends, family, etc. Today is no different. Weather is nice and warm (apparently Winter forgot about us this year) and I wrote slash at work. What more can I possibly ask for at this point? Nothing, I know!

We're doing an inner circle not-so-secret-santa for this year. Mainly with [ profile] glenien and [ profile] awakencordy. The fic I wrote was especially for that, [ profile] leymsanta is where we keep our fangirly wish lists and corresponding gifts. If we can actually manage to provide everything we promised each other, this Christmas + New Year's will be the BEST.

Cherry on top: I saw the cutest cat today. She was in front of a market and I petted her, then she just laid on her back and wanted to be petted more, but I had to leave D: Such tragedy. I wanted to take her home. We also have a black kitten in our company's front yard, he's such a player! Running around playing with people who are out for a smoke, eating quality cat food every morning, sleeping at the most comfortable spots in the garden, etc. LUCKY STRAY CAT IS LUCKY.

I have no intention of doing anything remotely work related, just going to hang out and go home. Awesome! You know, unless someone asks me to do something. I may have to do something then... Where is my boss? *looks around* Yup, there he is.
thelake: (lots: cara/kahlan not the same)

Coming back to work after 9 days of doing pretty much nothing is like getting punched in the face. Also, waking up with a headache was just the cherry on top of all this. My head is still buzzing in a very unpleasant way.

I've spent this long holiday with writing, writing and more writing which was epic and a lot of fun! I had the best performance rate in the last two days, so you can say I finished it with a high note.

Seriously though, I don't want to work at all. I have no idea what I was doing before the holiday, therefore it feels impossible to go back. There are 3894753489 emails in my inbox and even looking at the subject lines is making me dizzy.

I shall postpone doing stuff as much as I can today. I'll be out of the office tomorrow and the next 2 days for an external project deployment which sounds terrible at the moment, but considering everything sounds terrible on a Monday after a 9-day holiday, I still have hope.

I want to believe.
thelake: (merlin: tired)
- Well, almost sick, but definitely tired. I couldn't get enough sleep last night. I was watching Brothers & Sisters, then I fell asleep at an uncertain time and woke up at 2 am. Too lazy to shut down my laptop, I tried to fall back to sleep while a random episode was playing in the background. Then I got really interested in the episode (which was the very last one of the previous season) so I watched it, then I watched the episode before that. Those are happening between 2:30 and 4:00 by the way... And finally at 4:30 I randomly fell asleep again and woke up at 7:00 to the sound of my alarm clock. At that point Brothers & Sisters were still playing in the background.

Basically I'm trying to live and breathe on coffee at the moment. Although it messes up my stomach, I'm afraid I'll need to drink more than one cup today. Or 15.

Oh and having my period is the cherry on top. I feel ~awesome~, how delightful.

- I was planning on having lunch with [ profile] awakencordy today, but I can't. Work work work. But on the other hand, I'm meeting with [ profile] glenien after work, which sounds pretty good right now, but I don't know what the day will bring. Hoping to have at least a bit of brain power and physical ability to sit up and communicate with a human.

- Have I mentioned I'm absolutely, 100% broke this month? I really don't know how that happened, but I'm left with a total of 20 bucks (10 in my wallet, 10 in the account). Thank god for credit cards, but I'm still a bit puzzled about the current situation. I think that's what happens when your parents aren't around to do the grocery shopping and paying the cleaning lady. When have I become this lazy? I used to be so good at housework and shopping when I was living alone. I got used to living with my parents pretty badly I guess... Whatever, they're coming back this Saturday, so hooray lazy living!

- Planning on skipping work on Monday. It's a half day and absolutely nothing gets done on those days. I'll just let my bosses know in advance, hopefully they'll be okay with it. I don't have any active projects at the moment, so I honestly don't care about the rest. Not my problem. Eta: Yay I officially got Monday off. 9 days of blissful holiday ahead. *knocks on wood*
thelake: (merlin: because he's worth it)
- How awesome was Glee this week?! I'm not just saying this because it had Darren Criss in it... Well, yeah, maybe I am. Let's go all the way tonight... )

- I am so tired, yet 100% satisfied. Work kicked my ass, but I made an excellent impression with my boss. Fingers crossed for a future promotion!

- Gwaine, your epic hair flip distracts me right now, so I'll just watch Conan. GUYS, CONAN IS BACK! ♥
thelake: (random: kermit bale final)
>> Can't stop listening to Taylor Swift.
Favourites from the latest album:
- Speak Now
- Back to December
- If This was a Movie
- Mean
I would have had more fav. songs if I had stopped listening to one of the above constantly for hours and HOURS.

>> I AM SO BORED RIGHT NOW. I'm more tired than bored, but still pretty bored. Remember the time when I complained about my job? Yeah, it got better. I got the hang of things faster than I expected AND THINGS WENT FROM CRAZY DIFFICULT TO DAMN BORING IN LIGHT SPEED. I can get no satisfaction. Shoot me.

>> We'll leave work early tomorrow. October 29th is a national holiday (Republic Day) so they give us an extra half day as a gift for being SUCH AWESOME CITIZENS. True story. I can really use a vacation though, I'm very tired.

>> Now, I will talk about FANDOM. Monday TV was pretty good, don't you think? HIMYM was Robin-centric and it was especially delightful with the spoilery scene ) Then came Chuck and I kind of cried at the end. Gossip Girl was okay, considering it had Jenny in it, but I wasn't extremely annoyed. Moderately uncomfortable is the definition. Blair had it coming this time, not gonna lie.

>> Who's doing NaNo this year? I'll just cheat and finish my ongoing novel. It's at 30K at the moment. 20K in a month shouldn't be a problem. We'll see. If you guys want to share your frustration throughout the whole thing, [ profile] katayla just opened a community: [ profile] theangstofnano, go ahead and join.

I wish my job was easier. I don't like being a software developer, but I'm not brave enough to quit and change my area.

Lots of random and pointless rant about work. I'm kind of depressed. )

Feel free to ignore me.

thelake: (random: [writing] typewriter)
Once again, life has proved me that nothing is as hard as it seems. Small things, but still...

I had two different stuff from two different projects that needed to be done this week and I was literally looking at my screen, crying inside, not wanting to do any of it because they seemed to difficult. Hence, I formatted my computer, found other stuff to do instead of work, but finally I sat down and started working on them. I am done now, both of those job requests are completed and submitted to the analysis department for testing. I didn't know anything about them at first, but I LEARNED. I am so relieved. I think I'll never learn to NOT stress over stuff at work.

Was there a new Glee episode this week? Or Gossip Girl? I hate it when they mess up my tv schedule, but on happier note I am enjoying How I Met Your Mother very much this season. It's going extremely well ♥ If any of you stopped watching it because they kinda messed it up last season, you can start again now.

Now, what shall I do to pass time?

I bought a netbook for my brother. It's an Asus Eee netbook, they've just delivered it and stupid me, I turned it on without plugging it in and its battery died in the middle of registry modification, so Windows doesn't boot up now. LOL. I'll just install Windows all over again, but first I need to find a plug & play optic driver to use the installation CD with. Netbooks are awfully cute and practical, but not having an optic drive is kind of frustrating. Especially for me and my brother. We love formatting our computers. We should invest on making bootable flash disks.

That's all folks, how's the weather out there?
thelake: (lost girl: bo dyson kiss)
>> Today's Lost Girl day! Awesome! Another reason to immediately leave work and go home.

>> Working is frustrating, but re-doing someone else's crappy work is even more rage inducing.

>> LJ is in depression. My flist is full of emotional/confused/ranty/depressed entries. I love you guys, don't be sad ♥

>> Mondays should be included in the weekend. Starting the week from Tuesday makes a HUGE difference, believe me.

>> Dark and rainy weather is finally taking its toll on me. I am constantly sleepy, it's not good. I think it's some kind of a seasonal fatigue. I don't like it at all.

>> When I'm at work I want to do all sorts of other stuff, like read, write, do web design, wash the dishes, shop etc. But when I go home I find myself in bed, with my laptop, watching TV shows. I feel like my life is being wasted, but it doesn't bother me.

>> I decided that I'm too selfish to have a romantic relationship. I keep making up scenarios in my head and when it comes to deciding between my significant other and myself, I always chose myself. I guess you need to actually "fall in love" to get over your selfishness.

>> I really want to go home.
thelake: (lost girl: hai there hottie)
I passed the certificate exam! YAY! :D With 97%! I was aiming for 100% but whatever :P I am now a certified Websphere Portal 6.1 admin. Except I don't know anything because I kinda memorized the questions, LOL. Whatever. Computer engineering is all about learning as you go, so unless you work on an actual system, your knowledge is pointless. I know assembly language, but do I ever use it? Nope. (Although that was my favourite course at uni.)

Wanna go home and watch Lost Girl! Wanna see more Dyson! Also there is Glee! Awesome night will be awesome!


Everytime I talk about TV with this much enthusiasm I feel weird. Is it normal to be THIS EXCITED about TV? Also yesterday Amazon delivered the books I ordered last week and I was beaming with joy and excitement. I guess what you enjoy and cherish in life changes from person to person, but I don't know many people who are as excited as I am about TV/books/movies. For my real life friends, internet consists of Facebook and Gmail and occasional google searches. But internet is my life now and it's usually very hard to explain this to people. I do almost everything online and this sounds really scary to some people.

I look at my mom and then imagine what sort of a mother I will be. My mom is a pretty successful woman, accomplished, cultured. So is my dad. But they still couldn't fully figure out the internet. Our generation will be very different. Our kids will have mothers and fathers who Google pretty much everything, download music, movies, tv shows, have blogs, know Photoshop, etc. etc. We'll even Google our kids names to find something interesting!


Yup, my random ramblings are over now. I feel lighter now that I got rid of that pesky exam and can focus on other things; like getting my work computer formatted so it runs faster and doesn't fail on me when I do ~important things!
thelake: (bttf: dr. emmett brown)
I've seen this from both [ profile] katayla and [ profile] torigates and wanted to share: TUMBLR PLEDGE

The short story is; most of my LJ people, including me, are now spending more time on Tumblr instead of LJ and it makes us sad. Tumblr is practical and requires less effort to follow/contribute, but it doesn't have the human touch like LJ. Followers don't necessarily mean "friends" and I agree. Although I have couple of people I really love on Tumblr, I have very little "friends" on there. And most of those loved ones are already my friends on LJ, so no point to Tumblr on that base, really :))

Yes, I am pledging to spend more time on LJ from now on. Maybe even update everyday! Tumblr is still a lot fun and visually attractive, but LJ is my diary.

ON A COMPLETELY UNRELATED NOTE; I'm really excited about this week's How I Met Your Mother! I've heard so many good things about it (non-spoilery of course) and I can't wait to see it.

I'm still studying for my certificate exam. It's tomorrow at 2pm, I still have time to completely memorize 157 questions answers. Questions will be identical so I'm focusing on the right answer and relying on my adequate photographic memory. 90 questions and I need to do 75% to pass. I can do it. I hope...
