Thanksgiving

Yes I know.. My blog is practically dead. hahaha.. I have come to revive you, one of the countless blogs I have abandoned. Seems like blogs are starting to become like those daily planners that I buy in the beginning of the year and abandon after a few months.

I think I'll try to update it more frequently since I'll be going to places soon. ^.^ But sometimes it's a dilemma of whether I should write down my thoughts on the blog because it feels too public here.

I'm going for a trip with my parents this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it since I've planned it almost completely.

Every year I would write down a list at the beginning or end of the year to just recap what I've achieved and what I want to achieve. I discovered there were so many things that I've written down but haven't stuck to. Things just get forgotten after they were written down, just like those diaries/journals. But this year, I will try to set some long term goals and review them monthly or fortnightly. I feel like most of the things that get done are the sudden urges that hit me and I just start planning/working on it.

I guess if I write things down and say to myself, I'll do this soon, I'll do this next week, then things won't really get started.

For 2011, I have a really pretty daily journal. Hopefully I will write in it till the end of the year.

This year I guess I am thankful for having my bf and friends who are always supportive and caring and getting through everything. I would like to start next year off right. ^.^ Wake up optimistic and go to bed content.

Retro camera

I just downloaded a really cool app on my phone. I'm really happy and excited about it. Have been taking photos in my room with it. Mostly of my laptop and the window. 

Because of the Froyo update, I am falling in love all over again with my phone. It's a bit faster now after the update and I've been downloading a few more apps to add to my phone because with the new Android, some apps can be moved to the SD card, freeing some phone space. But only some... beggars can't be choosers I guess. That's the only thing that's a bit irksome about my Desire, the phone storage is really not that great and having an SD card doesn't really change much coz most apps are installed in the phone memory. Hate it when I can't download more apps because the phone space is getting full. 

Finally had a chance to take some photos outdoors. Took some photos in the Fenner grounds when I was cooking dinner. I think they look quite gorgeous. But they look extra gorgeous in my phone. A bit pale when transfered into the computer. 

Retro camera has a few cameras and they're basically different effects that's applied to the photo after it's taken.  

FudgeCan is one of my favorite and the first photo is taken with the FudgeCan. 


This was taken with the Barbl and is in black and white mode. I like this photo the most. 


The rest are taken with little orange box. ^^ I think you can't go wrong with this one. 




Now I can be artsy fartsy too. =P

Poetry

Just wanted to share a poem here. It's written by Jewel in her book 'a night without armor'.

Second Thoughts in Columbus, Ohio

I find it strange that we search
our wholes lives for love 
as though it were the final treasure
the solemn purpose of people 
in movies and magazines. 
Yet when it comes to your door 
one morning with calm eyes to deliver itself 
you realize it alone is not enough

You are before me, sweet man, 
and I am thinking 
Aren't I supposed to give up
everything? 
Aren't I supposed to be brave 
and abandon
each dream and aspiration
and yield utterly to this 
elusive beast love, 
to your soft belly and companionship? 

Aren't we supposed to 
have a piece of land-and children!-
that look like you, and cook
soup and bread and sing
each other songs before sleep 
and absentmindedly count the stars 
from our front porch as we pray 
for each other's keep
and pretend 
forever is a word known
not only by the heart?
