This is really a getting to be a sleeper blogger. Me that is. I'm only updating with this very late post at the end of the month because I just want to get in at least one post a month to continue this blog o mine.
Well, lots have happened since the infamous Russel Crowe post which one of my friends won't let me forget. Hmm. My family moved house back in Malaysia (myself included by the way) and it was hectic and tiring and I don't want to do that again for as long as possible as I can put any kind of move off.
Chinese New Year came and went as per usual. Lots of yummy food abound and I gained weight as usual. The jeans feel tighter and I feel fleshier than usual. That doesn't sound as nice as that feels too by the way.
2008's birthday celebration was spent quietly among a small group of friends with a Japanese dinner and then inviting everyone back to the new house for a visit and um some NSFW porno viewing by those friends on my computer which I dare not participate in. That did not sound as dirty and disgusting as I made it sound but I'm trying to put it as bluntly as I can without being overly pretentious.
So then, after about a month long holiday in Malaysia, here I am back again in Melbourne. Still job hunting and in between rest periods, I just lounge around and bore myself almost half to death. Sigh. I never thought I'd miss the prospects of actually going to have to study like I always did before this year. Then again, I'm also trying to psyche myself up to get excited about working even though I've never had a full time desk job before. It will probably feel terrifying at first but I hope I can get through that first interview process for my first job over quite well and do it well too.
It would be a lie if I said that I didn't feel like a total sod and bum for not doing anything real these days but what can I do? Bake and cook, shop, watch TV and write all day? Well three quarters of that is true I suppose but that's beside the point. Oh and I am starting to write again by the way. Just that the pacing of my writing is getting off incredibly slow. Not that I don't have enough time to spend on it though.
Anyway then, I'm starting to feel like Will, a middle aged bachelor, from 'About a Boy' who doesn't do anything at all except watch TV all day and buys things. Gah!
I need to get out of this unemployment rut. Now.
