Hamster's Blogger-sary!

Today marks something I started doing over some three years ago. Yup, August 11 is the date when I first started blogging. I would like to say that something inspired me to blog or it was an idea floating in my head for a while, but the reality why I started writing online was because of the SHEER UTTER BOREDOM. Well, that was the initial reason of course, since at that time I was an insomniac with too many hours invested in playing...er, being jacked up in Ragnarok. Try being a Blacksmith with crates of carrots to sell and waiting for everybody to buy stuff ( Ragna BS addicts, you know what I'm talking about! ). So while waiting for people to buy, I decided to blog, just for the sheer hell of it. I didn't know that in the future it would become an outlet of sorts.

My first blogsite was Easyjournal, and in the first year wrote everything from books, movies, music, my Warhammer games, random musings etc. I was religously writing everyday, if you can believe it. The last six months of my life in Manila were inscribed in that site. And whenever I feel nostalgic, I'd go back and read some of the entries I made. Some of those entries, or memories as I think of them, are the ones I cherish the most. And being able to go back and read them ... well, it does good for the soul.

The second year I wrote a lot less, the reason was that I was relocated at the province and after six months, got shipped to China. It was hard to keep up writing religiously, so I strayed a bit, then lagging behind, and in the end decided to take a small break.

I think it took a couple of months before I got the urge to start writing again. One morning I got up, switched on the computer and then proceeded to type my last entry for Easyjournal, opened up a new one at Blogger, and typed in my very first entry after a long while. I had decided to transfer blogsites, and Blogger seemed like a good one from what I've been hearing. Also, I have been transferring bit by bit my old entries from Easyjournal, so I can look at them in just one site. What surprised me is that quite a few of my buddies, some who I feel I'll never see again in the flesh, were blogging also. Well, kinda shocked actually. But it was really cool to be connected to them again, and I'll be honest for once; they are the reason that keeps me writing, at least once a week. So to everybody whose linked to me or me to them, thanks. And I mean a lot.

Oh, here's an old picture I found while cleaning out my closet. It's kinda blurry, but I think you'll get the idea.


Not that I was a heavy drinker before, but I think I know where I got my Ogre belly. Now where did I put my gut plate...

State of Mind: Breezy Temperamental
Now Listening to: Losing A Whole Year by Third Eye Blind
Now Reading: Knight of the Rose by Roland Green, Dragonlance
Looking for: A Vacation!
