+ I'm really proud of how I cleaned my room. I know it's something that should be done anyway but after five years of working (read: no summers to clean), I finally got to sit down and clean out my room. And despite the fact that I still have half of the smallest room in the house (I share with my little sister), I still have a shit ton of things. Like five years' worth of stuff.

It feels really good to live in a clean room. I can actually sit at my desk. I can actually open my desk and find clothes that aren't crumpled. I can go through my desk without having to unearth so much junk. It feels great. There won't be any before photos. It' too embarrassing. Read more...Collapse )

+ In other news, my Kindle is dying. I refuse to write that it's dead (even if it probably is) because I don't want to believe it just yet. I really want it to live. My dad's offered me his Kindle which he rarely uses now but I don't want to let go of Kindle. I realised how 'naked' I feel without my books. While cleaning out my room, I gave away some of my books and all of the stuff I want to read next are on my Kindle.

I know they're all on my cloud and I can download the Kindle app on my tablet or on my phone or on my laptop but it's so different to read it on the Kindle. I can't believe I'm missing it already. I really hope it just needs to rest and can be revived. Can we all cross our fingers please?

+ I'm going back to work for a week next week and I'm a little nervous but also glad to be turning over formally to someone. I left the office with an okay turnover but it was temporary as there wasn't someone hired yet for the position. So I hope next week goes by well enough. I really hope the new girl will enjoy the work as much as I did.

+ And for TV talk, because this entry is all over the place anyway, I am so in love with Jane the Virgin. Like crazy in love. I was totally resisting the show because we all know what happens when I fall in love with a CW show (Emily Owens MD) -- it gets cancelled. But I'm taking a chance and so far, really really loving it. Can anyone point me towards LJ icons??? Read more...Collapse )

+ The Japan photos will come out eventually. I know I should write about it before I forget it all but the perfectionist in me just anal about getting all the photos right and honestly, I don't know where to start. I'll get to it, I promise catteo

+ Finally, I did a HOLIDAY CARD post and if you'd like one, please hop on over there to sign up. I'll be sending the cards by this Friday so I hope you can reply before then. HOW IS EVERYONE WHO'S LEFT???

  • Take 12 photos on the 12th of each month
  • Post the pictures chronological order
  • Indicate the time, location, and a small comment
  • Taken from Chad at 12 of 12

    Seriously, if last month, I was in bed ALL day, this month, I was barely in bed at all! Running errands and driving for folks assured for a more active but still not as interesting day. I swear I need to travel on the 12th just because all my trips never fall on that fateful day. We can still make things happen. Read more...Collapse )

    I know there aren't many of us left here but I'd still like to send out holiday cards to those who are interested. You don't have to send me one back to ask for one. Just comment below with your full name and address (comments are screened, don't worry) and I'll try my best to get everything to you before Christmas. I've been pretty late to sending these out year on year, but I think this year, I can get it under control.

    Don't be a stranger and don't be shy. This is my favourite LJ holiday tradition since I can't do advent calendars and all. Also, I can't believe the holidays are coming around soon.

    So October was pretty crazy. I had my last two weeks of work -- which turned out to be pretty hectic but also pretty bittersweet. And then I had like a weekend of rest before I packed up and I had my Japan trip (that was seriously amazing) that I will write about in another entry. And all the wonderful crazy things in between. Seriously this October is one for the books. Read more...Collapse )
