I’m (eventually) going to Disneyland!

[UPDATE 09.10.2012] My robots and rocket ship have now gone up on the Space Base 8 blog! Check ’em out at the following links:

[/UPDATE]

In 2008-2009 I discovered RSS feeds and as a result got quite addicted to reading and subscribing to various webcomics. I’m pretty sure that at one point I was subscribed to a little over a hundred, maybe even over 150. Since then I’ve cut down that list to under 30 (still diminishing even now), and one of those that I absolutely love reading is Space Base 8.

I discovered Space Base 8 before it even began. The author, David Scott Smith, had begun writing a blog about his journey to create Space Base 8, called Monkey Always Wins. I think it was the title that drew me to it, out of all things. A monkey that always wins? Intriguing!

I still don’t understand why he found it so funny

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything relatively original to this blog, (7 months, actually) but I thought I’d try to get the blogging ball rolling again. Let’s start with a few updates.

For the most part of the year, I’ve been focussing on studying and getting my assessments done well before the due date. Any success? I guess so. I’ve succeeded in starting them more than a week or so before the due date, but finishing them the night before (or morning of) is a habit proving difficult to break. (If any writers of the webcomics I read are reading my blog and have noticed that I haven’t commented on your comics lately, now you know why.)

About a month ago I decided I was going to go for runs around my neighbourhood every second day. Surprisingly, I lasted about a week and a half, which is a week and a half longer than I’ve ever been able to keep up. I was quite proud of myself. I keep telling myself that I’m going to try and start again. But then I also tell myself that I’ve got a lot more assessments to work on and I need to make a study timetable of sorts so I can plan my time accordingly and set aside a particular time slot of every day to exercise. But the procrastinator that I am doesn’t want to make the timetables, physical or mental. Nor does the procrastinator in me want to put on my runners and run around for 15 minutes, and find myself gasping for breath. Oh well. We’ll see how I go.
