Goodbye, music… Hello, writing!


Yeah… I decided to leave my musical aspirations behind for a while.

Not that I don’t like music anymore. I will always be a music freak for all my life. I just think that I should stick to what I know I’m good at and improve it more.

Not to mention musical stuff can be a bit expensive, and I’m saving up. As much as I want a guitar, I’m gonna pass for a while. I still have my ukulele though, so I’m going to stick to it for the time being and focus more on writing.

I found these three books and I’m intent in reading them and learning about their writing styles. I know I’ve written FanFictions, but I’m thinking of making something a bit more serious. I’m probably not going to earn from them, but hey, you’ll never know. I think the Self-Editing book would be good for me, since I have a tendency to be lazy and not edit anything on my work.

So… the problem now is… what am I supposed to write about? I need to read more.

Gustav Klimt

Hey, Google’s got a cool cover today.

For those who don’t know, this is Gustav Klimt’s painting, called “The Kiss”. Which, at first to me, looked like a very trippy painting and it had too much yellows that I feel I needed Ray Ban Aviator glasses to cover up my eyes. It’s actually Gustav Klimt’s birthday today, July 14.

But it soon grew on me, and it’s one of my favorite art pieces now. Of course, Yoshitaka Amano is still my favorite artist.

Not to mention that if you’re familiar with the ultra-violent Anime “Elfen Lied”, you’d be familiar with it.

I didn’t realize how much I’m into art now. A long time ago, I’ve always thought that I’d be a painter. But my art is not that good, so I ditched it. My bestfriend, Joyce, would probably be a much painter than I am, anyway.

But as it turns out my “real” art lies with words. Sure, I haven’t done a good non-fanfiction story yet, but I hope in time, I would. I probably won’t making a story as Tolkien’s or Rowling, but hey, you’ll never know.

As Neil Gaiman said, “Make good art”. Like Klimt. Or Tolkien.

Hopefully, I’ll be making my own art soon.

Neil Gaiman’s Crazy Hair

This man is the reason why you don’t need to read around Ripped Freak reviews to know that you’re awesome.

Yep, it’s Neil Gaiman. Author of Coraline and The Sandman series, and one of my favorite authors. In this video, he’s reciting his poem, which is now also a Children’s Book in the US, called “Crazy Hair”.

And yes, he does have crazy hair, doesn’t he? XD

But that is exactly why he is so awesome. He was able to make a poem about himself, and still add a touch of fantasy in there for the audience. A person with that much imagination in him is worth idolizing.

There’s even a comment in this video that says Mr. Gaiman’s hair beats Neverland. XD

I wish I could get a copy of this book… it would be a great for story telling in my Library.

Early Morning Wake-Up Ukulele?

Is it so wrong of me to wish I could do something like this on my wood daybed frame at 5am in the morning? XD

Anyway, My Ukulele Obsession would’ve has reached new heights if I would want to play ukulele at such an early time. Every one in my house is still sleeping, and I’m probably going to wake everyone up if I do this.

I’m really beginning to enjoy playing the ukulele… it’s actually shocking since I’ve never really been so obsessed about something like this.

Don’t get me wrong. I still suck a little… I can’t sing for the life of me. And I just found out that there’s a strumming technique I can’t do (huhuhu T_T). But as far as being a beginner, I think I’m doing pretty good. Especially now that I’ve bought a decent beginner’s ukulele. Which I will tell you about some other time. XD

Not to mention I’ve just found someone here in Manila who sells D’Addario Ukulele strings! Whooot!

*So yeah… this is probably one of the reasons why I haven’t been blogging lately. My brand-spanking-new ukulele sounds positively AWESOME with D’Addario strings XD*

Hmm… maybe I’ll do this kind of early morning ukulele when I’m alone at home sometime. XD

Magnum Ice Cream Is Not For Me

Yes, normally I should like Magnum since I really do love ice cream.

However, I love Coke Floats from McDonald’s more. XD

An office mate of mine gave me some Magnum Ice Cream, and he said that it costs around P50.

Geeze, it’s like trying to buy gold bars and eating it down. ~_~

It wasn’t so bad actually, the chocolate tastes good, and so does the vanilla in it… but the thing is, I’m getting kind of bored of ice cream bars being coated with chocolate.

I like ice creams like Krazy Banana… you know, that popsicle stick of ice cream that’s coated with gelatin. I have a lot of fun eating those.

P50 bucks for an ice cream… are you kidding me? That’s worth two coke floats already. Personally, I’d rather buy the two Coke Floats than a Magnum. No offense, but I think I’d feel fuller and more satisfied with Coke Floats, than with one bar of chocolate.

But then again, maybe it’s just me.

I need a Coke Float tomorrow. ~_~

Of Dresses and Sewing Machines

All this Veil Poi-making obsession is making me want to get a Sewing machine…

But I probably think that that’s not all, maybe it’s the fact that I need to make my own cheap plus size dresses to fit me.

I just came from the mall today, and I was looking around for a nice dress (because, quite honestly, I’m getting a little older, and I probably need a make-over to a more grown-up look), but when I find the right kind of dress I want, it ends up being worth P1,000.00.

It’s seriously, seriously annoying. It’s like they’re saying that since I’m bigger, they’re going to charge me more for every frickin’ inch of cloth used in dresses. ~_~

Not to mention that it’s so unfair that people a lot bigger than me would opt to wear shorts or jeans, where as there are over a hundred stores for skinny-figured people, and they charge it at just half the price.

I have nothing against skinny people, and I know for a fact that I do need to exercise to lose some weight. But even if I exercise, I don’t think I’ll be as thin because I have big bones.

It kind of makes me sort of embarrassed for my full-figured sisters. Here we are, in the age where women can be pretty and feminine without society’s scorn, and yet we can’t seem to find the right dress to make us feel beautiful.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me being a cheapskate.

But I still want a sewing machine. XD

Yeah, I’m a Twit………. -terer XD

Yeah, I’m on Twitter now… again.

I’ve haven’t used my Twitter during the past few years when everyone was so hyped about it, which is weird since my cellphone already had a Twitter app on it. Maybe I just didn’t know how to use it. XD

Well, anyway, I’m using it now! Harharhar! This is going to be pretty useful, since my Fujifilm S1800 is pretty big, and I can’t lug it all around to take pictures of people and places. Like this morning when I saw a Mom with an 5 year old kid walking and holding her hand, while she was pushing an origami stroller, except that she didn’t have a baby inside. She had a Shih Tzu puppy riding in it. Obsessed much?

Plus one of the cool things about it is that I can pretty much Tweet any random thought that pops up my brain… and that happens so often. I think that it’s high time that any random thought should be Tweeted, rather than having it rot, and soon become forgotten in my brain. Maybe with Twitter, I can look back at all my random thoughts when I am older and laugh my butt about it. XD

So, any of you guys interested in the randomness that occurs in my brain? Just look me up at!/iamfrickinjoy

My Fanfiction Website

Hey guys, did you know I have a website?

Yeah, I’m author there too… granted, I only made 12 of them, and some of them are weird. There are some good ones, but I think there’s a couple induced by drunkeness (like the two Twilight Fanfics I made ~_~). I swear, I’m going to have to go to the long beach drug alcohol rehab treatment center whenever I’m making a new fanfiction. >_<

I do have a new fanfiction coming up. I’ll be posting it soon, once I finished editing it. It’s about the Lord of Rings movie, so all you LOTR people should watch out for that one.

I’ve had a couple more fanfics, but they got screwed… and eventually deleted. My writer’s block is so awful nowadays. Maybe I’m too distracted.

If you want to read my fanfics, just click here and you’ll get to my author’s site. Don’t forget to leave a comment, ok? XD

My Mom’s 60th Birthday Bash!

Yay! My mom celebrated her 60th birthday last Sunday!


Normally, I wouldn’t like to plan something as grand as this celebration, but after everything she’s been through for the past ten years (the typhoon Ketsana, her heart operation, me failing my board exams then passing it a couple of years later XD), I think she deserves it. I’m actually kind of happy we did it, because we were able to show our love for her and the love and respect of other people for her.

Anyway, Happy Birthday again, Mom! Hope you have a lot, lot, lot more birthdays to come! We love you! <3
