A So-Called End Year Post.

Ugh, I need to post something... Only 3 posts this year? 


Well, hello, everyone. So first of all, Happy Christmas to those who celebrate, and it's almost new year!! *fireworks from distance*.

*coughs*

After looking at my blog-archive for this year, It looks like I didn't write any new year resolutions for 2011. Too bad though. I think I'll just write down what I'd accomplished this year.

1. I am gaining weight. FOR REAL. I'll just go aksnfkjskajsd
2. Good grades. Even it's less than my first semester. *scratch head* Oh wait my first GPA was also in 2011.
3. I was selected as a member of some outside campus organization. Still don't know how it works but that's also an achievement, right? Right?
4. Had my first concert and it was Paramore!! And I also got to watch my favorite band, Panic! at The Disco too! *thrills*


In this year I also discovered a lot of good musics that sometimes I'm always wondering why I hadn't known them in first place. I still can remember how shallow my taste of music was, by only listening to what my sister's currently listening at that time. But they say, better late than nothing. So here are my favorite artists/musicians of the year. You can also check out my last.fm's account too, we can be friends there :-)


1. Panic! at The Disco
Never get enough of them. Although their split in mid 2010, Urie and Smith doesn't stop doing music as well as Ross and Walker and I really enjoy Panic!'s newest works, Vices and Virtues (bought their awesome bundle too). 
Top three tracks (from their latest album) : Hurricane, Let's Kill Tonight, Nearly Witches (Ever Since We Met..)
2. Radiohead
This band is awesome. No more words.
Top three tracks albums: OK Computer, In Rainbows, Kid A.
3. MGMT
Top three tracks: Weekend Wars, Song For Dan Treacy, It's Working.
4. Local Natives
I think this is the first indie band I'd liked with their songs I've been replaying like crazy. But somehow I don't really like their music videos, being hipster-ish and all, with some random teens just running happily around, lol. Nevertheless I still love their musics!!
Top three tracks: Shape Shifter, Cards and Quarters, World News.
5. Young The Giant
Cheers for good music and Sameer Gadhia's awesome vocal.
Top three tracks: St. Walker, Cough Syrup, My Body.
6. The Walkmen
I discovered them thanks to my friend's super awesome taste of music, Sarah, and now The Walkmen isn't going anywhere but my head.
Top three tracks: Angela Surf City, All My Great Designs, While I Shovel The Snow.
7. Beirut
Credit to Sarah again :-)
Top three tracks: Vagabond, Nantes, East Harlem

After contemplating on what to list next, I decided to keep the spotlight only for seven of them. 2012's resolutions? Well let's say I'll jot it down on my next post, probably.


Till next time :-)

Desaturated

It's been half a year. I don't really know but my passion for blogging is slowly decreasing, so is it for photography. I always got my hands full of college activities, well, including spending time with my college mates. I often go home really late now, really different with when I was a student lol. 

So here are some back shots I took with my tele-zoom lens, which has already been sold to a friend.






I really think some catching up is necessarily needed, but I really don't know how to share stories here anymore. My life is really ordinary right now, as what I really do is go to college-go home or going somewhere with my friends. I also tweet a lot so it really feels like I had shared everything and don't know what to share in here then. I haven't been doing photo shoot lately because me and my model friends are really busy.

Last semester my cellphone got stolen, again. It happened in our class room when we were taking our semester exam. I was using it as calculator. So when I was going to summon up my exam papers I left it on my desk. I realized it after about fifteen minutes sitting in front of that class. And  there you go. I lost it. 

After I got my scholarship money recently I was able to buy another phone. So let's hope this one lasts for years, dang it.

This counts as a post :|

Feeling Somewhat Creative

Happy New Year everyone! I'm sorry that I havent updated this blog as often as I could, because of this college thing. I've finally finished my first semester and I'm waiting for my GPA as I'm spending my holiday back here in Pekanbaru. I have a month to spend, and I'm not really looking forward to spending it by going out, just chillin in my home till my butt goes flat lol.



I dont know why, but back when I was in Jakarta, my creativity was somewhat pumped, especially in watercolor painting and portrait drawing. I think I've painted over 10 pieces. Wow. Even for me, that's surely is a big number. Oh! I have funny story about this drawing-and-painting things. So, I have two sketchbooks; that-is-specially-made-for-watercolor and the other one is-specially-made-for-sketching/pencil (confused? I know -_-). I used the watercolor one for drawing with pencil and the sketching one for painting. Well, that's weird, duh. *dont find this funny? okay then...

curious? let's straight to the business!


a birthday gift for my friend :)

familiar? :)

Ugh, This is spamming..

Beside drawing and painting, another hobby that had came back to my mind is Photography. Not the digital one, the analogue one. Remember my new kid, Mini Diana? My first roll turned out disaster, which is so sad, because of my foolishness. Wrong setting applied to wrong time; so they were overexposured with a great amount of blurness. :|



The second roll turned out GOOD! as expected! :D

I wonder why my Traffic Feed seems so crowded, but none of them left any comments. Well it 's alright cause it means people did visit my blog, accidentally or not *take a sip of tea*. let's continue to main topic then, what was it again? oh well... I'm out of topic anyway. So it means this is the end of my post *cries in the corner*

Until next time, and I hope it's not that loooong.







p.s My 19th Birthday is on its way. yay! But I doubt that there will be any surprises or celebrations because they had already started their college :(
