I've been putting off blogging for weeks now.
I don't know. There's so much I want to write.. but after work, in the evening, I just feel too tired to do anything. o_O Usually I just watch a few episodes of something then it's time for bed. Then the same thing repeats itself the next day..and the next.. =_=
Some 10 things I have been up to of late:
 Finished reading Agent Six by Tom Rob Smith. I have loved his books since Child 44 -- Seriously the best book I've read in a very long time. But his third book was a disappointment. I read it through to the end, after reading I can't believe how I managed to finish it. It went around in circles and dragged on about the character's addiction to opium. He just pretty much killed his main character in the third book..
 I started knitting a beret -- but!! Halfway through I realized my mistakes and it is such a waste to frog and pointless to continue. So I just left it as it is. XD When I find some err, inspiration to continue then I will. But for now.... I want to work on a different project! (haha, I have to be more patient.. XP)
 I am still playing the guitar (on weekends only -- for about an hour). Remember when I decided to learn the song 'Asturias' by Isaac Albeniz same time last year? Well, I haven't progressed much but I think I have improved on some of the difficult parts. It is such a beautiful song to play, I really love the sound of the strings. It is still too difficult for me. But I am learning at my own pace. I can play the intro wonderfully *A* but I am determined to at least try to play the whole song.X3
 I have put El Secreto de Puente Viejo on hold -- and started watching some other series -- Gavilanes - dropped, Bienvenidos al Lolita - dropped, El Principe - still watching, Sherlock - Season 3 UK - have just started watching and I still love this series. I am about to start watching some other UK series after it -- Lightfields, Shetland, Vera, and Orphan Black.XD I am such a tvseries junkie. :P
 Also watched some japanese dramas, one that I finished two weeks ago was Itazura na Kiss ~ Love in Tokyo. I read the manga, watched the anime, and now the drama! It is so nice. :) I downloaded the drama a long time ago. I attempted to watch it a few time but found it too corny, or the main guy too annoying -- the main guy not so much my type. BUT! It has been sitting on my comp for far too long and I decided to give it a go again. And surprisingly I didn't find it so bad this time.:P
 I have also been putting off sorting photos for a long time. (Ah, I procrastinate more than I should!) So far I managed to sort 1-day worth of Munich photos, some Paris photos (I know, these were so 2011 but there were just too many photos! :O).
*note to self: japan, paris, rome, madrid, munich, vienna, florence -- have yet to be sorted*
(by the way I also went through some China photos from 2010 -- I'm posting one next week on my photoblog -- snapperoni.blogspot.com. :3 Click and drop a comment!*A*)
 I started reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. The Kite Runner was such a beautiful book -- and so moving. I have read good reviews about this one and I am sure it will not disappoint. I bought the book a long time ago but the weird thing is I have been saving it for later.XD When it comes to a favourite book, I start it when I know I have a lot of quiet time by myself to read it and appreciate it. I hate being distracted and talked to when I start reading something I like. In my case the best time to read is when everyone else is asleep. Bad habit? =_=
 Watching Pékin Express (French)- Season 10! I didn't like the participants at first but now I have my favourites! Actually there's only one team that I don't like this season.
 Addicted to D&CO (French show on M6) - Amazing what they turn run-down houses into. Watching ti makes me want to redecorate my room (but not the complicated parts like taking walls down) -- just the "out with the old, in with the new" concept.
 Also watched: The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug - cliffhanger but good nonetheless. The Bookthief - Beautiful, moving. But it also made me want to cry happy-sad tears. It was that kind of movie. Realistic and I highly recommend. It was depressing but undeniably good at the same time. The Lunchbox (Hindi film) - I haven't seen any Indian films in a while and this was nice. The story was simple and light. It revolved around India's lunchbox concept and the story develops from there. It focused a lot on the characters' relationships - the feeling of loss, finding some again, rejection, self-realization, friendship, and how these relationships can change someone. It may portray more than that but the was how I found it. Also recommended.;D
Haha, maybe I should start writing reviews!
(Tomorrow I shall write some long overdue posts. XD
These photos may have shown up on your feed at some point if you follow me on Instagram. X3
