The reading list expands. Behind one living philosopher is a handful of more material to read from someone else important.
Behind that someone is another someone extra important too. So much books to read, so little time.
I am lazy, but I want to change that someday. I have idea on where I'd like to start.

I return to the glossy and sometimes ominous aesthetics of the consumerism.
In some way, I miss having the "breakroom" section. However, I feel that "glass" is more organized and focused than what "breakroom" ever was.
Before the end of this month, I hope to add something new to "glass".
Yarbus, The Visitor (1967)
Nam June Paik, "TV Cello" (1976)

I really miss going to the LACMA.
11:40-- I have now decided to add more to the "31 kitchens" exhibition in "glass.html".

I've been dragging this out for way too long. I have to stop.
As of today, I have a computer and it's a MacBook
falling, not failing
15:20– It’s officially spring break and I’m awfully nervous.
we’re all going nowhere.
The trees are still bare and snow covers the green.
not a lot going on today.
better at my sight-reading in piano.
Today, my arms and my fingers turned extremely stiff and purple. It was freezing.
Don’t forget to listen to jazz
17:46– I haven’t made a new page in a while. I’ll start doing that when I get a laptop.
My desk isn’t cluttered anymore.
I get scared too easily.
Learning Russian seems like an interesting challenge.
18:24—- I’m running out of interesting topics to type up.
My dream synth is the Roland JD-800. I don’t even have the best equipment to produce my own music. I’m still going to take a chance.
All I need is to do the work and drink my coffee. I want a brain that knows what urgency and distraction is.
Again, I‘m not in good shape. I did not stay home.
Still sick and miserable. I stayed home and I really want to watch a dumb movie or the X-Files. I haven’t turned on the TV in ages. I’ve just been taking a lot of medicine, drinking water, and sleeping in intervals.
21:14 —- I didn’t even watch TV. I’m panicking once again about how many hours I have left with such little energy to use.
feeling sick and unhealthy. ugggghhhhh

I've been playing jazz chords on my guitar.

It's extremely early in the morning and I'm feeling far beyond anything.

Oh my god. It even has a watermark.
It was 74° F with a cool breeze.
I gave up reading Kafka. It was confusing and dull. It was "The Trial" and I didn't get past the first four chapters. I couldn't find "The Metamorphosis" at the library.
I will never kick my habit of internet-browsing for an insane amount of hours.
I've taken some beautiful pictures with my Polaroid but I don't have access to a top-notch scanner.
I got zero Valentine's Day cards as I expected. What a sordid day for lovers. I've forgotten again.
"Street Spirit (Fade Out)"
All my life, I have been ignoring the washing instructions on the clothing I wear.
I want to complete my Björk CD collection!
I have decent presentation-skills.
This is clearly unacceptable.
I am certainly not feeling it today. I'm a mess, I cannot focus, and bored all the time. Yes, I've probably said something roughly similar before.
I absolutely despise typing up entries like this but I really had to do it. It had to be done.
It’s the beginning of the month and I thankfully haven’t drank any Arizona Tea.
I need coffee...
I got a cool alarm clock from Ikea.
January is the trial month and February is where you decide on whether or not to work them out.
Today, I became a entirely different person.

I fell asleep while listening to Bill Evans with my headphones on. I woke up in the morning at 5 o' clock, to "Like Someone in Love" by Chet Baker.
It was the most perfect thing to ever happen to me this year.
Had a decent day at school.
what is going on
Hyukoh's cover of "Gold" (Chet Faker) has been on replay for several days. That guitar tone, the vocals, drums, bass... everything.
Japanese doesn't seem as overwhelming as it was when discovering that they had three writing systems. I must keep on memorizing and look more into grammartical structure. I think I can succeed despite it being considered a very difficult language for English speakers to learn. I know there will certainly be large obstacles to overcome while studying. It will not be easy at all. I know I'm only starting but my point is, I'm not scared!
20:14-- I'll give up at some point. eh. ( ; ω ; )
Casio made the first "smartwatches".
i wish i had some nachos. this "blog" is strange.
Pictochat is beautiful.

I'm a little bit relieved but not at all.
"Put on your red shoes and dance the blues!"
I learned "1 Ghosts I" by Nine Inch Nails on the piano. I've got one day left for winter break...
I admit to liking a song or two off of "Construction Time Again" by Depeche Mode. It's certainly not their strongest work ever released during the 80s. Gahan was not using his voice to its full ability and most tracks lacked any engaging melodies. I know Gore was trying to progress to a more industrialized pop, but it really just failed miserably. The brass sounds take away from the style he was aiming for. In terms of lyrics, themes such as politics showed but were not too sharp. "Everything Counts", the single, is a song I could actually tap my foot to or at least not cringe at. Let's say they were "getting there" and it was a time of exploration.
I may as well start typing up in-depth reviews of my favourite albums of the early 1980s.
My winter break (not done yet): 7.01/10
WHO WAS PHONE???
I never use a DAW for making music. I will invest money into buying a copy of FL Studio or a decent drum-machine. Those are two very different things.
My resolutions for 2018:
Happy new year!! ☆*:.｡.o(≧▽≦)o.｡.:*☆
2017 really wasn't all that great for me. I am hoping to make 2018 a million times better, starting with making this "blog" not as vague.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEhhhhhhhhhhh. goal: tone it down to a -1
I am 37% fluent in Spainish according to Duolingo. I aiming to get even higher with that number as long as I do not give up.
One day, I’ll own a house, a shiba inu, and live far away from the mess America has become. I’ll wait.
I love eBay.
21:26—- I might have strained my neck by looking down at my phone for hours. :( This is why I need a neck pillow or maybe a better use of time. I despise long car rides.
My winter break so far: 6.5/10
I haven’t been able to get near a computer due to traveling.
I don’t remember the last time I’ve intentionally watched TV. Perhaps months ago.
Kirkland water (Costco) is nasty.
Goal:Try to use my computer less; I’ve said it too many times.

17:35–- New Order’s debut album is stunning!
Probably have a cold right now.
19:40-- Planning to invest money into buying F-1 Race (GB) or one of those hidden gems.
Maybe I should use Debian and not Fedora. If I do, I'll have to update this "blog" from my phone.
i'm sick and have an eye-strain. i'm sorry.
I'm gonna cry and bury myself in my pile of Uniqlo clothes.
Trying to spend less time on my computer today. i might try (ಥ﹏ಥ)
17:30-- I finished reading a literary work written by Chuck Palahniuk, titled "Fight Club". A great book I absolutely loved. No disappointments. Liked the style.
My nightmares are always scaring me.
I have spent 50 days doing this. :(
You have made a tragic mistake if you took a bite into a Kit-Kat without breaking it in half. Don't mess up like this again.
Listening to "Warsawa" from "Low" makes me realize I'm lonely.
Weekdays bore me, stress me out, and yet I feel lethargic. I don't want to ever stop updating this website.
I keep telling myself it has a sense of purpose as I get nowhere with my studying.
I desperately need to improve my drawing skills. I want to draw realistically and not screw up on making things proportionate. I'll try to try to make an effort. I've made zero progress and that makes me very sad.
Oh yeah, also, no site-map (unrelated).
Another day where I almost actually fell asleep during a 3 hour orchestra/choir concert.
Site navigation map to be added.
I’m okay at music composition.
I learned the bassline for the Duran Duran song, "Rio" .
In three weeks, I'll have my finals for school.
planning with folders
It's always "I want to" and not "I actually did".
I miss the real MS Paint, it's not same anymore.
I am in serious need of an ergonomatic keyboard.
I am preparing for my five day holiday (including the weekend)! I have a can of Arizona Green Tea and my computer. My goal: draw picture, write music, or whatever. I'll study math and history too.;
I am frustrated with writing Hirigana/Katakana! I'm sorry. (°ㅂ°╬)
At some point, I'll begin to type longer and more interesting posts. I've got plenty of stories to share but I can't put them out all at once.
This is game is excellent: Rockbasher
Daiso is a very unusual store. It's that $1.50 makes you buy more than you need. You'll walk in and know you just need to get a notebook but then you'll pass by the mechanical pencils/ or the snacks... As a result, you get out of Daiso spending $9.00 or more.
I honestly rank "Medúlla" (Björk) the best out of her solo albums.
LibreDraw is one of the worst drawing applications out there. (I really can't say anything else about it)
I'm so exhausted and I haven't done anything productive at all. I listened to 808 State though.
I might be able to add a visitor counter or something on my site sometime. I apologize for being rather vague recently, I don't have a lot of time to use my computer due to studying. Please don't worry, stay tuned.
Out of all the desktops there are to use, KDE is my least-favourable, XFCE in the middle, and GNOME being what I use right now.
Y'all need some potatoes.
I am quite busy for this week! That's all I can say, as I am planning to make my site less of an eyesore
At the moment, I am close to completing Kirby's Dreamland 2 (Hoshi no Kirby 2). After I finish the game, I might check out Trip World.
I have much appreciation for millic's album, "VIDA". Also, I am attemping...
to make my own digital/computer art with the help of Libre Draw (I changed my mind).
I don't like using Libre Draw.
It is getting a little bit colder and darker everyday.
No, I don't write poetry.
I didn't go out because I apparently didn't have a costume.
00:05- even at this hour, i am still extremely overwhemled by the constant shouting i hear on a day-to-day basis.
16:34- still stressed
I'm not in the mood for posting anything positive today, i'm too sad:(
Live CDs/USBs are coooooooool.

I just might talk about my life but nothing really happens.
