What I did last week

Occasionally, I try to recall what I did on long holidays that has passed some months or years ago and find that I could not remember how the time was spent. It is as if I spent weeks idling. But I know it can not be because it is not my nature to do that. However, it would be good if there is some 'proof' that the time was not wasted. That way, there would no longer be that uncertainty of guilt.

Therefore, this entry is written to remind myself how I spent the Chinese New Year and the recent long chain of Offs so that I can read it and think to myself: "That was a productive holiday."

1. I learnt how to use iMovie. It was a pretty simple and intuitive application but a good introduction to video editing nonetheless.

2. I also tried to do some 3D modelling in Maya. This was hard, especially when I have zero training in this field. I'm working on a human face with polygons right now. I should get a book on this someday.

3. I finally finished reading Bram Stoker's Dracula. It's not bad except that some parts are rather unnecessarily long-winded. Many of the characters don't really have unique personalities. I like Mina Harker. She's smart, noble(I'm actually quite sick of this word as Stoker uses it so often) and has a cool long first name - Wilhelmina. Count Dracula somehow reminds me of Sherlock Holmes.

4. Played quite a bit of Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. Not very productive here but at least entertaining. Also played DotA with army friends.

5. Started an endowment plan, or whatever it's called.

6. Grandma's death anniversary, cousin's housewarming and send sister off at airport.

That's what I can remember so far. Time for bed.
