It's depressingly simple to get depressed

I'm off to Salute to Supernatural Vancouver 2009. It's my first convention ever. I hope it's going to be alright~

It's been over a month since I last wrote anything at all. I've sorted out my trip to Vancouver (for "Salute to Supernatural" \(^o\) (/o^)/) at the end of this month, and I'm taking baby steps towards sorting out my personal life. It scares me a little doing things on my own but it never feels better than taking charge of my life.

It's days like this that make me proud to be a Hong Konger:

150,000 people attended even after 20 years have passed. I'm so glad I went even though I've been busy as hell at work.

The boys were disappointing (as expected) but like someone said in the stands, I didn't even know there were so many West Ham fans in Hong Kong:

(Note: The mascots weren't pre-arranged. The guy just rounded up all kids in West Ham shirts in the stands.)

I’m terribly behind with my work at the office and have never felt so unmotivated at work. I need a holiday. Or a kick up the backside. I’m stalling everything, and I’m hopelessly distracted. At some subconscious level, I know the deadlines are there. But I am still blatantly not looking at them. Perhaps because every time I look at them, I feel a bit worse about myself. I guess I just need someone to shake some sense in me, or just give me a slap.

Ahhh…… I’m feeling so much better now, now that I’m done feeling sorry for myself :)

Spent a whole day at a symposium and at least half of it fighting sleep. When the speaker got really, really boring, my mind wandered and started picturing Jared giving a lap dance to Dean. I probably would've blamed it on Chash's "He Comes to Save the Day" except that it's Dean not Jensen and it's a Jared who's doing the striptease very professionally not that Jared who likes to dress up as a superhero.

And then I tried picturing Jensen doing the lap dance and the visuals just suddenly changed from Dean to Alec - which, though hot, just made wonder why I thought it would be so OOC for Dean to do a lap dance - and right then, is when I realised my facial expressions must've been pretty weird throughout my journey of thought, especially since the talk was oh so boring :p

Tax Season

Received the "Employer's Return of Remuneration and Pensions" from HR today, which means I really have got to do my taxes now. Somehow I can't seem to locate the receipts of two of my donations which I remember should fall in this financial year. But there aren't really large amounts so they won't make much difference I guess. I understand that the society cannot function without taxes but I just really, really hate doing taxes because I never seem to have all my stuffs in one place...

The first generation born after the 1989 Student Movement will have become university students by now. It’s hard to stomach because I still remember all schools in Hong Kong going on strike to support the student movement, even though I was just a primary school student then.

I’ve never been really political active offline but I’m definitely going to the candle-light vigil this year.

Another seeder was arrested for uploading. I'm so ashamed to be living in a place so monopolized by heartless capitalists that not one political party, politician or academic has been willing to stand up for us. Piracy has given us unprecedented computer literacy, made possible many cult/small fandoms, and given people access to movies or shows which would've been censored or died of obscurity. And frankly, the movies or shows which people wouldn't like to pay for after downloading wouldn't have attracted a paying audience in the first place. For one thing, I've bought more DVDs after I've got into the habit of downloading simply because I know of and have tasted more shows via this means.

I'm watching 19 films at the HKIFF.  So far, $9.99Machan, and Antique are my favourites for this year and only 4 films really put me to sleep and I'd had doubt about them before buying the tickets so I guess my judgment is not so bad this year~

Full list behind cut )

Still 6 films to go, I have high hopes that the 2 Indian films Chandni Chowk to China and Ghajini will be entertaining, and the rest... I don't know, I'll just wait and see. After all, I don't remember what they're about anyway.

In between waiting for the next screenings, I finished translating a couple of short fics at the Starbucks. Now I'll just have to wait for the permissions so that I can post them. Fingers crossed they'll come soon.

I've just found out that biodegradble bags are biodegradable - the hard way. When I went to check whether I've bought a manga twice, I found that some of the plastic bags I used to store my manga and my Snape costume by the window had disintegrated. Flakes of plastic fell down to my bed when I tried to clean up the mess. I guess this just isn't my day, but at least now I've seen firsthand what a bag in the process of degradation looks llike.

I need to get out of here. Quick. Forcing 2 of your people to resign when you're already short of manpower during peak season simpy isn't sane.
Trouble is, I totally suck at selling myself and now I don't even have time to prepare myself adequately to find a new job.
