Finally, I have pics of my room! I'm still not done fixing it up, but this is how it looks now:

from the door:
My bed is off to the right, and so is my La-Z-Boy. Dead ahead are my TV, A/C, shelves, and basically most of my mess. To the left is my closet.

my dressing area:
Yes, I need a mirror in my dressing area. Yes, I need to re-organize my closet. Yes, that is a smiley face tie on my tie rack. Yes, most of my shoes are black. Yes, I need a shoe rack. Yes, I know I'm getting irritating.

my messy shelves:
I have messy shelves... and I haven't even put all of my stuff in. Some of it is still outside, in the desk that I decided I didn't want in my room. Anyway, here are brief descriptions of what's in the pictures above, from left to right:
  • a wide angle view of my shelves
  • a sign saying "master" in Chinese and English, some useless keys and keychains, some IDs (off-frame)
  • some of my books, accessories, a goblet of paper clips, other stuff
  • a box not-so-full of pictures, my MP3 CD player, 2 spindles of CDs, cap, some wood thingamajig, a drum, some Gatorade, some WD40, other stuff
  • a different angle... a pair of jeans and a shirt draped over the chair... yes, I am a slob
  • some of my toys
  • more books, my Pugad Baboy collection, DVDs, an album, my yearbook, blah, blah, blah...
  • my now depleted supply of goodies - I really need to stock up again
  • another view of my toys... a close-up this time

    some furniture:
    More proof that I am a slob can be found on the couch - a heap of fabric also known as a comforter, bags I use often. My other stuff isn't so messy - that's a stuffed dragon, some hankerchiefs, a CD case, a pen, and some other stuff on the table. Of course, my La-Z-Boy stays clean.

    of course... my bed:
    My bed has obviously been used recently. I have 6 pillows, not all of which I use. The small bench that goes with my bed is in the next picture.

    On the table right beside my bed is my laptop, along with the cradle for my PDA and of course, my lamp. On the bench are some essential gadgets - remote controllers for my TV, my DVD player, and my A/C. My PDA and phone usually reside there too.

    Above my bed is a cork board, which, unfortunately, I haven't had time to fill yet. It used to be less bare, but it fell, and I only recently put it back up.

    the view from my bed:
    from left to right:
  • my door
  • my laptop
  • the flashlight in a bowl (plus some wiring) under my laptop
  • my ceiling fan that refuses to work except as a light fixture
  • a flashlight behind the curtains to my right
  • of course, my TV

    Don't wake me, i plan on sleeping in...

    :: Good Morning ::
    One thing my (missing) camera can't capture is just how firm my new mattress is. It's a lot stiffer than what I've gotten used to. Oh well... I'll get used to it.

    :: Cocoon ::
    Regular readers of this blog, if they actually exist, know that I've complained about my room before. Rest assured that I will not be doing that now. Instead, I will be complaining about the fact that I don't have a camera.

    I don't have a camera, and it sucks. I can't take pictures of my room now, partly because I'm nowhere near my room, but mostly because I don't have a camera! I want to post pictures of my bed, my La-Z-Boy, my new night tables or end tables, my couch, and basically everything in my room, but I can't because I don't have a camera!

    I could go on ranting now... but I've got to get back to work.

    :: Bad Language ::
    Fact: I am irritated by those who can't speak properly. No, I have nothing against people with speech impediments. I do, however, have a thing for proper grammar, pronunciation, spelling... basically, I get irritated with people ignore the rules of proper English. No, I don't speak perfect English. No, I'm not an authority on the language. The thing is, I make an effort to speak (and write) well, and I expect others to try and do the same.

    Another fact: the Philippines has been described by many as "the text capital of the world." Being a resident of the said country, I really can't say objectively whether or not this is true. Yes, I could try and do some research on this, but right now, I don't particularly feel like it. I just want to rattle off some facts that relate to the point of this entry.

    Yet another fact: ppl hr hav lrnd 2 cmprs dr txts i2 s few chrctrs s psbl n ordr 2 save on dr msf, n also 2 minmyz d strn on dr fngrs. 1 efct of ds s dt mny txtrs gt so used 2 splng in sms shrthnd dt dy smhow 4get hw 2 spl prprly. n a cntry wr englsh hs alrdy bn mngld, btchrd, n odrwys slaughtrd 4 yrs, d arryvl of sms mns n evn grtr dtrioratn n d qlty of wrtn englsh n d cntry.

    I tried to write the paragraph above in as few characters as possible. I'm sure others can still compress it a bit more. Would you care to try? Leave your version in a comment if you wish. In any case, the full text follows below.

    People here have learned to compress their texts (or text messages) into as few characters as possible in order to save on their monthly service fees, and also to minimize the strain on their fingers. One effect of this is that many texters (as those who use avail of Short Message Service are called) get so used to spelling in SMS shorthand that they somehow "forget" how to spell properly. In a country where English has already been mangled, butchered, and otherwise slaughtered for years, the arrival of SMS means an even greater detorioration in the quality of written English in the country.

    Final fact for the entry: It seems not even the English are immune to the ill-effects of SMS shorthand. It's true - so says the author of one of the lists I subscbribe to, This is True. See one of his articles below.
    THE KINGZ INGLISH: Britain's Qualifications and Curriculum Authority has decreed that secondary students must not be penalized for misspellings when taking an important hour-long test -- on English proficiency. The spelling standard was loosened when only 71 percent of 14-year-old students managed to "reach the level expected in English" against a target of 75 percent.

    The point: I have no idea. I think the first fact is the point of this entry. I get irritated by the fact that many people, despite receiving a several years of schooling, cannot claim to be fluent in even a single language. However, the last fact gives me a little bit of consolation. I take solace in the idea I am not the only person surrounded by babbling fools. I am comforted by the fact that there are others who are probably just as irritated about bad language as I am. Why?

    Shaudenfraude, I guess.

    :: Recap ::
    Two days ago, somebody got a cut just above his right eye - right below the tip of his brow. I feel bad for the kid. I think I should wear elbow pads the next time I play ball.

    Yesterday, the world conspired to keep me from working, or at least slow me down. The world threw phone calls, questions, and other distractions my way, and succeeded in allowing me only 0.0000000001732 seconds of time for work in between distractions. I should buy myself a good pair of earplugs.

    A few minutes ago, I arrived home after a 25 minute drive from Alabang. The drive felt slow. I should save up for a new car.

    Now, I'm not making sense. I should stop.
