January 2010

Overworked. Underpaid.

As Alanis Morissette sang, “I feel drunk but I’m sober, I’m young and I’m underpaid, I’m tired but I’m working yeah”.

I’m actually amidst a pile of workload now, but I just got to take a break. My head is literally aching. Oh, if you were wondering I’m an auditor working in one of the big 4 accounting firms in the world. It’s my first year as a supervisor so I’m really, really hanging by a thread here. I can’t afford a single mistake so the pressure is on. Sorry, I’m sort of ventilating right now… whew, wow I didn’t you could get so stressed like this. I wish I could elaborate but the clock is ticking. Back to work then! 😦

The Walkers are back!

Finally I got to catch up with Season 4, I’ve been meaning to watch but have just been so busy. Anyways, here’s a summary of episodes 1 – 5 for those who hasn’t seen them yet:

The Walkers

Tommy was back (for a couple of days – yey!) and revealed that he hasn’t seen Elizabeth for months. Hope they get back together, I miss Julia too. Meanwhile, with no trace of looking back, Sarah hooked up with hot French guy, Luke during her stay in Paris and he even followed her back home but they eventually broke off (sad!). Kevin is finding it hard to choose the egg donor for his and Scott’s baby after having found the perfect surrogate (he’ll find a way trust me!), Kitty has cancer (lymphoma), I know its so depressing, but at least she and Robert are getting along again because of it ironically, Justin will soon be marrying Rebecca whose pregnant BTW and he still doesn’t know with all his med studies going on, Nora is dating a much younger guy (spicy!) not to mention broken-hearted with all the things happening in the family, Holly and Saul almost found a way to salvage Ojai Foods’ distress situation but Ryan who’s been up to no good, stuck to his plan of ruining his father’s business and family – what a downer!. So if you haven’t been following yet, that’s what you’ve been missing on the latest season of Brothers & Sisters. I missed them! Didn’t you? 🙂

P.S. Favorite moments so far: Kevin seeing Luke for the first time and the Walker women with few exceptions (hehe) ogling over Luke swimming on the pool. LOL.

Choice Hottie for January: Hayden Christensen

More famous for portraying the teenage Anakin Skywalker a.k.a. the young Darth Vader in the Star Wars II and II prequels: Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, this Canadian, 28 year-old actor has recently caught my eye. I saw Jumper (2008 blockbuster hit) on HBO the other day and immediately noticed; what – with those deep-set eyes and melting stare. 🙂 I reckon he’s going to be a top action star, a formidable rival for Shia LaBeouf. What do you think? Early on his career, his acting chops were praised for his role in the movie Life as a House back in 2001, so I think he’s got “IT”, he just need more breaks. Hope we see more of him this 2010.

Queen Christina

It is confirmed, instead of the first rumored title ‘Light and Darkness’, Christina’s brand spankin’ new album will be entitled Bionic. As it implies, this album will be all about the future. In the latest issue of Marie Claire, Christina talks about what inspired her to make this album and her transformation from a bubblegum pop princess to becoming the diva of her generation throughout her crazy career. The album is tentatively scheduled to be released in spring (March), she finished recording it already and just doing some finishing touches to it. She is looking fabulous with her article photos.

Christina will be busy all year-round as she has started filming her first movie Burlesque with none other than Cher out by the end of the year. Her leading man in her acting début will be hot actor Cam Gigandet. A story of a small town girl who finds love, family and success in an L.A. bar. I hear she’s doing great so good luck to her. It will be a great year after all. Year of the Queen.

POP Soup #3

MAKE ME – Janet Jackson

Another Janet dance track… which is good. Her greatest hits is out now.

HAPPY – Leona Lewis

This girl is going places, watch out for her sophomore album Echo.

EMPIRE STATE OF MIND – Jay – Z feat. Alicia Keys

Two music towers collaborating. Now that’s something you don’t see everyday.

RUSSIAN ROULETTE – Rihanna

Everybody’s still hung up on that Chris Brown thing, time to move on. This one’s dark and deep, I can understand.

FOREVER – Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem

Stumbled on this on MTV, I don’t know how he did it but props to this guy for putting all these ‘greats’ together; he doesn’t disappoint as well.

HOT MESS – Cobra Starship

Took longer than it should but finally they have a follow up to Good Girls Go Bad, yeah!!!

WHATAYA WANT FROM ME – Adam Lambert

Great track but I don’t know if he’s going to outshadow the song once again with all his antics.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE – Leighton Meester feat. Robin Thicke

Cool song, nice vibe, Leighton is hot!

WHO SAYS – John Mayer

He’s back and making news again… who says he can’t get stoned?

Guys, be sure to take time and listen to these tracks! They’re in my current playlist right now. 🙂

2010 is Year of the Tiger!

Well, it may or may not be Tiger Wood’s year this 2010 but is sure is mine. 😛 Well, that is if you believe in the Chinese Zodiac Horoscope. It hasn’t officially started yet (see below) so we’ll see.

Now that 2009 is over; a year marked by tragedies, all we can do now is hope this year will bring us if not better, at least nothing worse than what we’ve experienced. Judging by the forecast… just read for yourselves:

 “The Year of The Tiger begins on February 14th 2010. Drama, intensity, change and travel will be the keywords for 2010. Unfortunately, world conflicts and disasters tend to feature during Tiger years also, so it won’t be a dull 12 months for anyone. The Year of the Tiger will bring far reaching changes for everyone. New inventions and incredible technological advances have a good chance of occurring. For all of the Chinese horoscope signs, this year is one to be active – seizing opportunities and making the most of our personal and very individual talents. Everything happens quickly and dramatically in a Tiger year – blink and you could miss an important chance of a lifetime!”

I won’t even start on the resolutions, I know I won’t keep them. I’ll just do the best I can. In any case, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 🙂
