Hiya! Just checking in…

I don’t have much to say. Work’s been busy and I’ve been a bit lazy – playing DOTA when I should be working overtime…to catch up on work. So I guess it’s not really a bad thing – to relax and game, that is.

Made some significant progress in the Super Luigi Wii U game last weekend. Beat the game – now, I just have to go back and find star coins for all the levels.

Been kinda bored with my 3DS, only using it for streetpass…and then I started doing wonder trades and GTS with Pokemon and WOW, SO MUCH FUN SUDDENLY. Getting Pokemon from other games…I GOT A CHARMANDER FROM A WONDER TRADE! Also getting tons of pokemon I don’t have so I’m grinding pokemon right now just for Wonder Trades.

Was messing around with my code a month ago and made a coding error…which prevented me from getting traffic to my WoW site for a month. I’m sad – 4 years of data with a month missing Q_Q
At least my other sites ( were unaffected.

I got 3 dwarf hamsters for Christmas, from Zee. Due to their difference in size, we named them Pichu, Pikachu and Raichu. Not coincidentally, Pikachu is an electric rat. So a dwarf hamster is…not far off.
Pikachu is the friendliest – I can pick her up and she doesn’t bite me. Pichu is the most…erratic – she’s like..the runt of the family. And Raichu just loves food.

I had winter gloves for 2+ years and got new ones for X-Mas. Within a month, lost the new gloves and now I’m back to my old gloves. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN!? I’m sad, the new gloves were mobile device friendly…and were Calvin Klein gloves. Sigh…I think that’s been the most depressing thing for me this week (which, relatively to some is a pretty really great week).

Trying to make room…for more stuff…by getting rid of…stuff. Donating lots of books to a) my nephew b) the local bookstore (in this case, selling) c) leaving a stack of comics in my office d) donating them to goodwill. No one wants my 3 LOTR books from when I was like, 5. They’re in awful condition. And I have 2 Hobbit books too, but not the ones I read as a kid. Weird.

Sherlock is the best show ever. So love it. Like, so much. Frig.

Just saw MasterChef Canada today – it was good. I love MasterChef shows :D

That’s it for now, gnite!

…in four years…

I’ve realized that quantifying meaningless accomplishments is just as meaningless.

I’ve improved a lot this year but it seems there’s still an infinite way to go. I find myself taking note of more inspirational people or more qualities that I would like to have. I think I’m getting over myself as I realize the only thing holding me back is myself. And that goes for everyone – your limits are self imposed.

I plan to continue my growth and realize that being complacent is the worst thing for you, personally or professionally.

I think of all the time wasted…”if I knew then, what I know now”. But it’s best not to dwell on it – learn from your mistakes but don’t dwell on them. Just try not to repeat them. Make new ones for there’s no better way to improve than making mistakes. I think I used to be afraid of failure…well, I’m still afraid, but realize that it’s okay to fail because the benefits from it outweigh success. And finally, I’ve learned that relationships matter. Like crazy. And that it might be the most important thing both personally and professionally.

That is all – for now. I may do more later/soon.
