Moving Madness

Moving Madness

I have survived the nightmare known as the move from hell. I honestly have nothing good to say about this move, but I can say that the place and the neighbourhood is okay . . . once I overcame a major hurdle in regards to room choices. But first, let me say that moving from a big apartment to a much smaller house was really difficult. Read on about my wild experiences!

Moving Musings

If you’ve been following my blog and Twitter, you’ve probably seen me de-clutter and clean more than usual. I de-cluttered my film, book, and manga collections. I threw away all my childhood stuffed animals save for one. I’ve even shared things that my parents have found that interested me (old Filipino money and an ancient rotary phone). I had a silent goal of cleaning up my clutter for two reasons: to lessen up what I own and to prepare for a move.

I mentioned in my previous entry about buying a MacBook Air, and I am now here to share my thoughts on it. As a long-time PC user since the late 90s, I had struggled quite a bit with using OSX. I’ve been fiddling around with it for the past week, and I’ve had to learn this operating system. Despite some of my frustrations, I will admit that OSX is a lot easier to handle than the time I tried out Linux several years back! Moving on, here are some of my observations.

It’s September! Holy cow. Last I checked, I was suffering from the humidity in July, and then I was swamped with work in August . . . it’s really amazing how fast time go by as we get older. Now, I hope time will slow down a bit for the next six months because it’s time for all the US holidays to start! I’ve been waiting for this. I get a four-day weekend for Labour Day, and then another long weekend in October along with my ten-days vacation, and in November . . . yes. I’m ready for the days off! In the meantime, check out what I’ve been up to for the last two months, which involved eating a lot of good food, going on a de-cluttering spree, finding old money, and buying a new tech gadget.

I am alive, and I’ve returned with a new TC’s Treasures post. Since the last time I wrote this column, I decided to do an overhaul with the way I do this post by creating sub-categories of my favourites I encounter. I’ve broken them down based on type by animes, beauty products, books, food, films, games, mangas, music, and technology — all with alliterative names. This will help keep these columns organised, and if I happen to not have a favourite in that sub-category, then it won’t be on that post. So here are my recent favourites in the new format!
