Discontinuing Confessions of an Amateur Photographer



Getting the Hang of It: Twitter

Whew. That wasn’t so hard. I just tweeted my first tweet that wasn’t an automated one by WordPress regarding my posts.

Actually, for approximately the past 2 weeks, I’ve been trying to compile a tweet in which it fully incorporated my true and whole thoughts. And that can be hard with 140 characters. Especially with the deep and insightful stuff that goes on in my head. (Evidenced through my first tweet…).

But Twitter continues to baffle me. I first came to this hard realisation last Sunday when my technologically confused father asked me what Twitter was all about. And I sounded like a doofus trying to answer.

Yup that's exactly what I said. I even omitted some errs and umms and hmms and a lot more rambling to protect my self dignity and to save space. But mostly for dignity

A less coloured and more white version for all you racists.

C’mon me. The most internetually informed person within kilometres of this town. It’s Twenty-fucking twelve! I should know what Twitter is all about. I should know what a hash tag is, or how to retweet, or if I should follow people who follow me, or even who to follow in the first place. I should be able to make perfect tweets out of any thought or experience, from the perfection of the sunny-side-up egg I just prepared, to the perfectly shaped stool I produced afterwards.

Even about the striking resemblance it shares with a bundle of Coconut Pocky sticks

But no. I am a huge Twitter n00b. Yes, I am. I am and I’m proud. I’m not. I am going to look up a Howcast video on how to use the most complex, un-straightforward, baffly, piece of internet mania the world has to offer right now.

Happy New Year…

It’s been 1 month and 12 days since I last posted, and I apologize for that. November and December have been extremely busy, and quite stressful, but I’m back. 2011 has come and went, and now we are at the dawn of a new year. If you really want to know where I stand in this whole 2012 end of the world theory, I’m not a believer. Sorry Paranoia Magazine recruits, I’m not interested in joining your ranks.


Like all people in the western world, I have proposed to myself some resolutions to think about. So far the ones I will embark on for sure is to

  1. Beat Final Fantasy I, II (Dawn of Souls version on my emulator), V (Advanced on emulator), VI (Advanced on emulator, actually in progress, I’m in Mt. Kolts, as I just started). III and IV are missing since I already beat them, and the ones on Playstation, PS2 and PS3 are missing since that’ll be my project next year. I’m on way to beat more Final Fantasy’s than my brother, who has beat VII, VIII, in progress with IX, and XIII.
  2. Read more. A lot more. Planning to read at least 50 books this year. It’ll be a lot easier with my new Kobo touch ereader.
  3. Write more. On this blog of course, but for myself, just some personal works to keep the gears in my head turning.
  4. Learn more. Knowledge is really fun to come by, and learning is something that keeps us all young, right? There is so much more to learn, and I’m interested in expanding my knowledge.

I’ve also made one change this new year, and it’s got something to do with my appearance. I got me-self some bangs, something I hadn’t had since Grade 3, so ha.

So, happy new year readers, expect much more from us in the coming year, hold on to those resolutions, and live the year as if it were your last. (pun intended.)
