Woah, my particularly long absence from the blogsphere has been stifling, and to imagine that, I can’t remember how my own blog interface looks like! I had to revisit my WordPress and sign in to well, relive everything. It pretty much feels like a whole new thing to me.
Don’t ask why I suddenly dropped off the face of the Earth. (… or the Internet, in this case) In all honesty, the blogging spark left me in (see last blog post date) and somehow, driven by an unseen force of determination, I see myself back again, a few days late of wishing my own [deserted] blog a Happy 2012.
And plenty has changed since then-namely WordPress. I had to do a double take before finding my way around the newly designed site. Yes, I have been gone for that long. Also, yours truly is writing from a different location now-again yes, the dream that I once wrote about, which is studying abroad has been realized. Don’t get me wrong, I am thrilled to see the other side of the world, but the grass is not as green as you think once you have scaled the fence. Just saying. And when yours truly feels stumped in her studies, she turns to writing, her good old fashioned therapy. It keeps me sane, and firmly rooted to um, reality. Although my drabbles do not remain logically so at times.
So, apart from facing a colder climate in comparison to my homeland, I have (surprise!) been cooking passable meals to eat. It’s actually quite fun if you are not cooking under pressure and there’s all the time in the world to experiment and plan with. I’m very keen to try out eggs benedict next. Maybe tomorrow. I’m sorely tempted now. Reading Gordon Ramsay’s recipe on that isn’t helping my situation now.
I have watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. It’s amazing.
Gary Oldman is amazing. I digress. So much for my promise in blogging about every single film I watched-the details to TTSS are just too foggy for recollections now-if I were to write my own opinion about it I would be (shamelessly) referencing other people’s reviews-which won’t be mine at all. At least, I can talk about another film which I just caught in the cinemas on Monday-Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol. Spoke to the cousin about this film earlier today and he kept saying how Tom Cruise shouldn’t be trying to be all macho in an action film because it just looks like he is trying too hard. Well to each his own I suppose. I have no qualms with Mr. Cruise, mostly because my attention was elsewhere in MI:4.
The New Year fireworks here was something of a joke. Honest. If the fireworks were going to be so halfheartedly launched, I would rather that there be no fireworks at all. There was a huge crowd, I would give you that, but the abysmal cough of fireworks… really wasn’t worth our time standing out there waiting for something to happen at midnight. I wasn’t expecting a rainbow streak across the sky, but you get my point.
I really hope that this time, my writing streak will stay firmly with me. At least, my blogging streak. Because i have been writing, I assure you, just not blogging, ’cause I am weird like that. Perhaps I should do some writing exercises, and post whatever I do here. For kicks.
