The Hiatus Excuse

I've been gone for almost 2 months with no blog post or any updates. So I came up with a list of things that prevented me from blogging.


There has been a large bulk of workload this month. Hopefully the efforts we have exerted to share our knowledge about the product we are currently supporting will have a good result by the end of the year.

Yes, this is a big distraction. Especially when you see those notifications in the upper right portion of your wall. With the advent of the new features Facebook has announced weeks ago, it's really tempting to try that new layout my friends are boasting in their profile pictures. I am still dealing how to control how much I will be checking FB everyday.

Wikipedia & IMDB

I always check these 2 sites whenever I watch movies or TV series. When I'm in Wikipedia, one thing that I cannot keep myself from doing is to click a backlink that I end up with so many tabs in my browser reading where this particular chick played a part in another movie. If my curiosity is not satisfied, I check the IMDB link of the wiki entry and check additional info like quotes, trivia and goofs. One best feature of IMDB for me is the parent's guide that shows you whether the movie can be watched by children. It helps me gauge if the movie is worth watching. (Insert big grin here)

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

This is the online game I am currently playing right now and this one takes plenty of my time during my rest day. I have been with the Horde side for over 2 years and the game not only features the usual slash and kill system which most MMORPG offers. It not just offers quests to level your character up, it also has different types of player versus player activity like raids and battlegrounds. It also has different events in game like the Brewfest which looks like the Oktoberfest where I am able to drink unlimited supply of beer -- I mean my character, for 2 weeks during the said event. To control my playing time, I have cancelled my monthly subscription auto-renewal.

Actually these reasons I have stated are just excuses to justify my laziness to write. Hopefully, now that I have acknowledged my laziness, I can make a habit of making a post once a week. I realized that I can also use these excuses as a mean to write something.
