This is just a quick announcement to say that my official blog, WPR, is currently undergoing a migration to a new, community-based blog-hosting platform. There will still be all of the usual posts like my book reviews, new album updates, thoughts on current events, and my usual amount of quirky weirdness, but there will be a couple of new features on this site starting very soon.
In the meantime, come on by and check out our new digs.
Thanks for reading!!
I spent a good chunk of time yesterday giving my official website a makeover. Of course, there are still a ton of things I want to do to my site, but all of that will be developed over time. My website and this blog will be the central hub for all things Gordon Roque. I'm going to be adding one new thing every week to my online castle, and so, keep checking in . . . .
I've actually been revamping all of my online outlets. As you can see, this blog got a facelift. I also did my twitter site yesterday (www.twitter.com/gordonroque). My Facebook page will undergo some construction next. There will also be a couple more new additions to my growing online empire, and these will be announced soon. Fortunately for me, I actually enjoy working on graphic and web design. If I can find a solid and affordable one, I will be investing in a laptop later this year. If anyone out there has any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to share. On a very unrelated note, I was thumbing through some old photos, and I found something ridiculously adorable. Check out this shout-out to all the gangstas of the world . . . This is a photo of my handsome nephew Tyler and my niece Lai (L-Boogie keepin' it real. Fo-shizzle my nizzle!!). Speaking of my nephew Tyler, he's just undergone surgery to repair his torn ACLU. (ACL? ATL? Oh whatever. Although, isn't ACLU some kind of civil rights organization? LOL) He can't play sports for the next 5 months at least. This kills me because he's such a great athlete. I hope he heals 100% so that I can watch him kick some serious a$$ next football season. At the very least, maybe his body could use a good rest from all the physical activity. It would be a perfect time for a growth spurt to take place so that he can be big and strong on the field come next August. I have my fingers crossed. I still have much to do for my Cafe Coco show tomorrow night. It's going to be so much fun. I can't wait. Well, I've been putting off a much-needed nap for over an hour now. It's time to get to it. I challenge anyone who reads this to treat themselves to ice cream today. Leave a comment and tell me what flavor you had. Life is too short not to indulge in little bits of sweetness. More to come soon. -g
So, what's up my good people?
Writing a first post is actually quite hard, because you will never know what to write first. That's why this post is mainly about nothing, and yet everything I can think of at the time.
#1 So, first things first, I write this blog because I want to prove to myself that I can do something for a longer period of time. You could call that a self-improvement method.
#2 My posts will be quite chaotic, but the main subjects will be: My road to Japan, Games, Movies, my look on the world.
#3 I think it's time for my goals now. My main goal is: Study in Japan and maybe move there for good. I'm learning Japanese and preparing myself for the exams. I still have around 2 or so years to the exams, but I believe that the earlier I start, the better. Living in Japan has been my dream since I was 7. A lot of people tell me, that this dream will wear off, but I don't really think so. My particular liking towards the Japanese culture (And I'm not talking about manga, neither the Kimonos and samurais. Let's grow up a little people.) may give me some rose-tinted glasses, but I try to be as realistic on the matter as I can. The rest of the goals? Become a programmer, get a good job and simple stuff like that. And I also like writing about things that seem interesting to me.
