Semester is almost ending...

...and now is the time of the semester that I'm most packed. Just more this and the next week and my classes are over for the semester but I have yet two presentations to prepare and present and two tests to do. This is completely depressing me specially because I'm not in the mood to do anything but I still have lots of things to do. Therefore I don't do the things I should do and I'm also unable to do what I want to do because my conscious keeps telling me that I shouldn't be doing this and all that, ya know.
    Concluding, my paperworks are halted since the pc was sent to the assistance and I should be resuming my work after all my classes are over. And since my models are halted this blog is also semi-halted because, well, this blog is mainly about paper models :P (though it's been a long time since I last posted about it). Also I'm having a hard time to keep following the blogs I normally follow but I'm still there reading the new posts whenever I can. When I say "it's been hard to keep following" I mean that I'm not visiting the blogs on a daily basis but I'm still visiting at least twice or thrice a week.
     Anyway, here's the current status of my last build:
Himeguma

     Yes, hopefully this one will be resumed in two weeks :)

Thank you for reading.

PC is back

     Ok, now I'm catching up with the blogs since the pc is back. Not completely problemless (ok, this word doesn't exists, I guess, but it's cool to add the suffix "-less" to the words :P). The power button was fixed but the power source wasn't exchanged because there wasn't another one readily available and there are chances that it'll take one month for them to get another one so it's much wiser to take the pc back home and keep using it while the assistance makes the request for another power source. When they receive it I'll take it back there so they can exchange it for me.
     The present one is actually working fine except for the noise that the fan makes, sometimes, right after it's turned on. Ok, it's not a big deal, it's just a noise by the fan that fades after a few minutes of usage so why care? Simply because it's still under warranty and I can change it free of charge. That's why :).
      Now, it's been a long time since I last posted about paper models right? Well, unfortunately I won't break the diet today :(. But hopefully next post I will :). Let's hope and pray that until the next post I'll have already moved my shameless fat ass to be able to do so.
      While this doesn't happen, have some fun with these stupid images I found out there in the vast reigns called "internet".

Eg-aaaaah!   Pepat   Nice offer    Whaaaat?

These fails so much...
   Fail1    Fail2    Fail3

Ah...nice jokes...

And lastly, this is something I should consider buying...this ad is almost convincing me...

PC unavailable

     Yup, that´s right. Last post I said that I was going to send the cpu to the assistance because of some problems and in the end I sent it there this tuesday only. Now I´m posting from another pc, not from the one I usually do so this is just a notice about my current status. I don´t know if I´ll be able to visit the blogs I usually visit meanwhile so I´m also apologizing for the lack of comments and posts. Later, when my pc arrive, I´ll do the everything within my reach to catch up every blog :)

Thank you for reading.

[Insert desired title here]

     Freezing. Well, not really but it's really cold for me. I'm not that used to cold weather so every degree that decreases hits me, stealing my heat, stealing my will (little) to do anything. So, how cold is it? Something around 14°C or 57F. Cold? Maybe not for you but for me it is.
     Now, leaving the temperature aside let's see what else I have to talk about...well, Prinsesa Musang decided to award my blog with the Kreativ Blogger Award. This is actually the second time someone awards my blog. The first time HalfCrazy awarded with the Neno's Award. I'm glad to be awarded. Let's do thinks one at a time.
     First the Kreativ Blogger, it looks like the rules says that the one who receives and accepts it must share seven things I like to do and pass the award to another seven blogs. Ok, seven things that I like...
     ♫ Music (listening, playing, whatever)
     ☼ Food, specially when I'm hungry
     ♪ My bed, specially when I'm sleepy
     → Free time
     → The internet
     ← Papercrafts
     ← Free time
     So, as you can see I DO like free time :D. Now it's all up to what I like to do during free time. Building paper models, eating, sleeping and other things that I probably won't be telling :P
     Now I should pass this to seven other blogs....well, do I even READ 7 other blogs? I don't know. Will count in a while, now let's see the Neno's award.
     Actually it's been a long time since I that award was given and at the time I didn't post a post about it here because the tag also said to pass the award to other blogs and to say why I love blogging. Since I didn't know many blogs well enough to award I decided to simply answer on HalfCrazy's blog the first question that I'll copy and paste here:
     The reason is simple, to share my models and to try to show the world a little bit of this nice hobby I discovered that is paper modeling. Also to vent a little whenever I feel the need...that's why there's the "etc" on the name :)
     It's fun to be able to create something by yourself and get some recognition for it. It's also fun to go and find new ideas, new views and new information on the many blogs about many different topics out there in the world. And it's also fun to meet and keep contact with strangers. It's just like you said, social networking.
     Now, giving the award to other blogs...why do they set a minimun number? I don't really follow seven blogs :P.

     Let's leave this aside for a while because there's still more to write about.
     Ok, I finally printed the templates for Himeguma and Project IV and they're there, waiting to be built. I hope to get started soon if my schedule and will power allows me. Lately I'm been getting more hooked with music so I've been practicing with the drums and starting self-teaching acoustic guitar so these are simply eating my free time. Not that I'm progressing much, specially with the guitar but, well, we can always dream right? :)
     Besides this, I think tomorrow I'll send the cpu to the assistance service because the power button is broken and the power supply is making a strange noise that shouldn't do and it's really time to take a look at it. Since it's still under insurance I can't simply open it by myself to take a look (not that it would any useful since I do not understand much about it but hey, it's fun to do it :D) so I have to take it to the assistance meaning I won't have a pc available for I don't know how long. Hopefully it won't take too long but who knows? If there's a need to replace the power supply than it may take little longer if they don't have it there. That's why I'm writing such a long post? Maybe :P
     I'm counting on making some progress while the cpu is not available, let's see if I can do it :D.

     Now, back to the awards, who am I going to award? How am I supposed to choose the award receiving blogs? I'm supposing I can't award back so let's see how I'll handle this.


      An Ardent Cosmic Journey.
      ~BaKKaNeKKo
      balut & natto
      Kenwooi
      ~mEmORiEs~
      Prinsesa's Anatomy
      Vicissitudes of Life
     These are the blogs that I frequently visit and enjoy visiting and I'm awarding. Which award goes to which blog? Both awards goes for all blogs because they're all creative and I see the passion of blogging in all these, though two of them are on hiatus.
      This was a long post. Thank you if you had patience to read it all.
