Wow, it's been awhile since I posted an update here! But if you've been following me on Twitter, you'll know that I've been blogging somewhere else. I fell in love with Tumblr. It reminds me of the good, old days of blogging where it's all about sharing cool stuff on the web. I really wish I could do the things I could do with Tumblr here but Movable Type's bookmarklet is just not as capable as Tumblr's. But then again, my blog is not running the latest version of Movable Type. They might have improved the bookmarklet with the latest version. I don't know. Can any Movable Type users running the latest version verify this?
Anyway, more than one exciting things happened since my last posts. In chronological order:
- I finally bought my dream digital SLR camera, a camera I've been wanting since it came out in 2005: the Canon EOS 5D! Yay! I bought it used because I wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise and it's just as awesome as I thought it would be.
- We got our oil-powered furnace and water heater replaced with gas powered ones. The new high-efficiency furnace does a better job heating up the house and, most importantly, doesn't stop working while we're sleeping at night like the oil furnace did.
- We got a new niece! She is my younger brother and his wife's second child/daughter and our third niece, and she's beautiful. I'm sad that I'm hardly part of my two of my three nieces and one nephew's lives since I live on the other side of the planet from them but I'm always happy to see them happy in their Facebook photos. (I find that last part really depressing, by the way.)
I'm almost sure there are other exciting things that happened last month that I failed to mention but I really can't remember. But then again, it could be just because I found last month anything but boring.
Currently, I'm trying to make my own designs of soft toys. I have this idea to start my own one-of-a-kind, handmade, soft toy online store. I've never sold any soft toys that I made except for one sock monkey so we'll see how this plan goes. I'm really excited about this and really hope that it'll work out. I'll keep you posted!
