As I have a million times before, I am now setting yet another goal. Short term, this means dropping 2 kgs by August 1st. Hopefully I'll do better than that, but I know from personal experience that when I set high goals, I end up mentally labeling it "unattainable". Screw that, I need to get serious!
Long term goal means losing at least 5 kgs, which would put me into a healthy range. But if I manage that, perhaps I'll try to drop another 5 for looks sake? :) haha, fat chance (no pun intended). Right now my biggest focus will be on dropping those first 2 stubborn kgs.

I've set a plan, everything from an excercise agenda to planning my food intake, etc. I even picked up drinking vinegar again. It helped me before, but good grief - it's awful! haha. Oh well, "no pain, no gain" right?

My reward for sticking to the goal will hopefully be the acheived weight loss, although I should probably set another reward as an incentive to continue. I'll think of something  later.

Ok, by posting this for all to see, it's like making a promise to everyone who reads this. I am now officially under obligation to go through with it, stick to the plan, and make the necessary changes in my life. I am motivated, determined, and  ready!!

Wish me the best on this endeavor! ;)


This entry will be an informative article on three of my currently favorite bands.

Kill Hannah
an electronic rock band that started in 1993
Lyrical excerpt:
"I'd give all i have just to get you to stay 
For so many years in my dreams things were changing 
But always your face was the same
Love you to death
note: they also did a great job covering both Queen's "Under Pressure" and Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell"
Shiny Toy Guns
an electronica band that started in 2002
Lyrical excerpt:
"Waiting alone 
In the world you made for me 
Makes staying in love 
Just a world of make believe 
Where im playing along 
And your words are clear to me 
Like hearing a song 
Without a melody 
These broken days won't last forever 
You know i'll put us back together
note: they also did a great job covering both Fred Astaire's "Puttin on the Ritz" and Peter Schillings "Major Tom"
The Postal Service
An elecctronic indie-pop band that started in 2001
Lyrical excerpt:
"I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd.
I know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?
note: they also did a great cover of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds"

Haircut photos!! ^^

Howdy y'all! Sorry it's taken me so long to get these up, but here are a load of ego shots starring the new haircut ^^ Other than that, there's not much news to tell. As my mom always said: "No news is good news"! hehe.

Much love,
- the ego monkey ;)
