I have been a little lazy lately… I’m not sure whether its the cold weather, the long work hours or the release of a whole bunch of geeky gaming goodness – but I have seriously neglected my blog!

That is all about to change !

In fact I have bought myself a domain to make this little wall of scribblings official. I still have a few kinks to work out but watch this space – or more accurately, watch out for kindofpretty.com – coming soon!

21 now.

Aside from that, there are heaps of things for me to catch up on – blog-wise – My twenty first birthday has been and gone. It was grrrrrreat, one of the best nights of my life. Its semi self-centered, but it was very moving to hear all the stories people had to tell and touching, sometimes embarrassing thoughts they had about me. I don’t think moments like that happen very often and it couldn’t have gone better.

Very cool venue too – the Monte Cristo Room is definitely recommended to anyone looking to add a little class to an event. There were a couple of hiccups through organizing the party, and it is quite a steep price but I wouldn’t have had it anywhere else.

small passions.

Everyone has different interests, of course! And if your lucky, then you get to earn your money doing something that interests you deeply, but the chances are your NEVER going to cover every one of your own passions in your professional life. You got to make good on your hobbies on your own time!! That is what I am trying to do more of… Some things I really have had a gaining interst in are as follows:

  1. Visual effects in film – Creating that movie magic with AfterEffects, Final Cut and PhotoShop.
  2. Architecture – Looking at the great cities of the world and finding out a little about their history and distinctive buildings – and how their put together!
  3. Illustrations – Drawing, making pictures and just being able to pick up a pencil or pen and put something on paper that your happy with. Its a good skill for birthday cards.
  4. Fabric – Getting to grips with the basics of making my own shirts, pants and cardies. Saves money and its always good to do something practical.
  5. Japanese!! 日本語を話すことができますので、私は日本にいるときに学ぶ !!

Those are my top five for the moment. I am excited about learning about all of them – I also want to know what everyone else in interested in.

What are your top five interests you want more time to pursue?

expect more.

and finally, Kindofpretty will be updated DAILY from now on. At least 1 quality post!

Hold me to it!

Nice advertisement – it showed up while I was cruising around Twitter.



For perspective to anyone who isn’t familiar with Mr. Chi City’s work:

April 23, 2009

Been on a detox the last 9 days. It was a real struggle on the second day, not being able to just snack on easy, ready to eat food. Bread, rice, tofu and easter eggs were all out of the picture.

Strangely, after the first 4 days, I began to realize that I was feeling much better then usual. ESPECIALLY after cheating on Saturday night and tucking into a tofu pita, my body completely hated it! I felt bloated, greasy and gross. 

I miss treating out while I watch DVDs, and I’ll be glad to scoff a whole heap of Japanese fusion tomorrow night – for my birthday dinner ! – but as for daytime biscuits, chips and noondles, Nah! I’m going to try and avoid them.


Tonight I will definitely be having a couple of treats to celebrate officially ending the detox.
