New Years Splaz!

So there I am reading a Manga, More Kare, laughing and wondering whats gonna happen next; when it hits me that I haven’t made a traditional blogger’s entry about New Years!
Thus, here I am. Stopping everything and thinking of what to throw in before the wee hours run out on me. Roughly FOUR hours to go! WHOOO! (I say this as i sit on my tush miles away from any celebration what-so-ever. _|¯|o it’s depressing. 😦

Quite a bit happened this past year, but I’m not going to go into details as a simple search of “Year in review 2007” gets you about 75 million hits. But take a click and see for yourself, what you missed and what you remember.

Isn’t it funny how ppl start looking back on what they’ve accomplished in the year only when the nexy one is around the corner? People make resolutions, mostly in an attempt in hopes of what they’ll accomplish. Somewhat like a dream, but on a smaller scale one step at a time. But how much of it do they cross off? How many times have you made a list of things you want to do in the coming year, only to realize at the end of it…you had forgotten about them altogether? I’d be lieing if I said I wasn’t one of them. lol
A lot of times, it’s due to some unrealistic dreams and aspirations they jot down in haste, ad they realize the truth and fluster it off when they don’t come close to finishing it. But wait, this time…take a moment. Think about what you really want to get done. Be realistic, is what I’m saying…

AAAAND, on that note: I should put what *I* want to get done this year (in regards to the blog and general) :D.

Bog related:

  • UPDATE MORE OFTEN!
    —_____— though this may be a bit unrealistic from what history shows…
  • Crypto of the Week
    Once a week do a crypto puzzle or entry about as I originaly intended to do with this blog
  • Kanji of the Week
    Once a week do a Kanji letter of the day or such as I’ve been getting questions about why I never went through with it…ahem
  • Incorporate a Audio blog
    I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now. To do some audio blog entries while I’m out. A lot happens when I’m out, but I don’t always write about them when I come home and sit in front of the box. lol. You guys probably noticed how much less I talk about compared to the first couple, lah
  • Geek week in review
    I’ve had this idea to do a technological look in what’s new at the end of each week. Cause not all of us have time to keep up to date day to day
  • Lots more…
    I have lots more ideas, but it would ruin it if i spille dit all out right? :p Expect more. And if you have any suggestions youd like to see, e-mail me! kibikudou@yahoo.ca!

Ok, now some New Year Resolutions for myself (in no specific order)

  • FINALLY LOOSE THAT WEIGHT!
    Oi oi, it’s not that much..and if I’m not mistaken, the dots on the right have increased if anything. lol
  • Get back into Swimming, Tennis and Mystery sport
    I’ve been wanting to get back into them, but I was using the weight issue as an excuse…:p I want to get back into them though, I miss sweating up a storm after a good workout. 😀
  • Take advanced Japanese classes
    A five year old could out-talk me right now. No seriously, I’m so out of the language barrier, I may need to go back to basics. :s If I’m ever to go to Tokyo U like I wanted to, I need to brsh up quick time lol
  • Make a million dollars
    Hahaha, talk about realistic dreams eh? Ok, but you get the point, I need to save up a lot of money to plan for the future…so lah,
  • Enroll into the Post-secondary school of choice
    I’ve been playing around a bit and haven’t fully enrolled myself into University quite yet. I need to catch up on the courses I need and get my tush moving!
  • Change relationship status…?
    This is more of a passive resolution than a active one (I think? lol) but I’m a hopelessly romantic fool who can’t stop fantasizing lol.
  • Get full drivers licence
    Make that final jump past the hurdle that lets me drive with a minimum amount of alcohol in my blood. hahahaha I want to get a international drivers license eventually tooo!
  • Finish studio time for…
    Pfffbt, as if I’ll tell….Let’s see what comes out if anything comes out lah lah lah..

I guess the list can jus go on and on if you let it eh? heh ah well, that’s pretty much it. I hope to be really busy this year to get a lot done, so wish me luck with it (as I know I’ll need it to get my procrastinating butt into shape…literaly? hahaha) 😀
It’s only roughly three hours remainting in the new year from the eastern timezone, so the countdown is slowly ticking away. yay!
Tell me what some of your new years reolutions are, and why? I’m really cuious to know what my readers are thinking. 😀

oh…another one:

  • WATCH LOTS OF ANIME/MANGA
    I think this goes without saying, ne?

Happy New Years everyone! Good luck with whatever you hope for in 2008!
Ike! Ike! Ja!

kwix Update #01

December 15, 2006 at 10:53 am | Posted in Anime, Cryptography, Death Note, Job Related, Movies, on the go, PSP, YouTube | 7 Comments

Urgh, I’m being so lazy as of late. There are a few posts that I have to get done; like the crypto-answer, DeathNote follow-up, YouTube video I found interesting, PSP stuff… The list goes on, really. gak! no! I’m working these nine hour shifts at my work five days a week now, from three to midnight. So I usually come home and collapse, and wake up just in time to eat some food and an hour to spare before heading out again. sad I gotta get a timeline together so I can better get USE of my time. So tired nowadays from lack of sleep…sleepy

So what do you guys think of this new layout for the blog? Like the older one better? Or stick with this for the holiday Season? Frankly, I’m not too fond of the widgets being stuck in the bottom of the page. I would have loved it so much more if they were on the right side as usual. lol, but that may be because I’m used to it being there. But the bottom? >_>….it’s workable though, so meh.

WOW! Theres more then 10,000+ hits on this blog according to WP.com!!! yay!That’s crazy guys! Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look around. I think it was the DeathNote content that reeled you guys in, I’m glad I can be of service to that many people. smile!

So quick update for those of you who missed it:
• Theres the first DeathNote movie for download in english (Hi/lo quality)
• MP3 for Manatsu no Yoru no Yume is now available

Both are in their respective posts. So just scroll down, or got o the very bottom and click on the post in ‘Recent Posts’.

Well, that’s it for now. I promise I’ll get right on the other things soon. I’m also in the makes of a PSP game, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the future. ^^ ‘lata!

One of the founding reasons behind this blog was my interest in Cryptography. For that have no clue what it is, Wikipedia has a good intro in its article. I’ve been so busy lately I almost forgot to get this going. Since its a new month and all, I thought I might as well get going on it now.

MP3/Radio Track I'm listening toTrack Change: Chris Brown – Say Goodbye

Over our time in history, we’ve found the need for security in a number of forms. Take a look around and you’ll notice that you live in a time where we are obsessed with privacy and security. Take a good look around you. Doors, locks, windows, curtains, lights, they’re all primitive forms of security and privacy. It was hard enough keeping people out and away from information then, now introduce technology into the picture. You’ve now got a boom in information going back and forth, but more importantly you’ve got more people wanting to know that information. But I’ll go more into detail with that in my first Crypto Blog.

You: So get with the contest already!! @_@;

MP3/Radio Track I'm listening toTrack Change: Danity Kane – Show Stopper

Heres how this works:
I’ll be having a contest of this sort every month. The prizes will vary, and get harder each time. All ciphers will be crackable, so no dead ends, keep trying if you don’t seem to get it.
There is a hint to help you along that comes before the actual challenge. The hint is also coded though. But no worries, the hint is ALWAYS much much much easier then the real challenge.

Here’s November’s Crypto-Challenge, G’Luck!
