New Year, New Blog Content?

So it's 2012 already? I haven't posted here since October 31, 2011 and it sure was a very long time ago (insert last year joke here) Anyway, to all my old time followers (are there any?) You may notice that my site has undergone a facelift. Yep, the old design was not not allowed by the Blogger team so I managed to get a template and edit some points of it so that my blog don't look like sh*t.

I think most of my followers got tired already because no decent update was made here for a while. I guess I owe it to my laziness and recent indulgence to photography. So as part of my "New Year's resolution" I'll be updating this site at least once or twice a week.

So what would be the topic for today's blog post?

Well..I'll just have a recap of what I've acheived last year and what would be my goal this year. Sounds boring right? Just bear with me here. This is my first post for 2012 anyway.
