A nice Monday for a change

You all know what day is today. It's Monday. And like any other Monday, I expected this one to be yet another boring and exhausting one. But, fortunately, I was wrong. It proved to be a pretty interesting day. And because The Yoboo is now a personal blog where I have the opportunity to bore everyone with my tales.

So I got to work like any other workday. It took a while to get comfortable, to fully wake up, and other things I do so I don't have to start working just yet. But all those things were in vain for, you see, there was no work to be done!!! That was the first thing that made me thing that probably today was going to be a nice day after all. As the time passed and I surfed from one website to another, the boss left who knows where. So questions like "have you finished that?" or "can you improve that?", minimal chores just so I don't sit around doing nothing, were out of the equation. You could almost say I had a day off, but I had to spend it in the office. It's not that bad as long as I have a computer with an Internet connection.

After that I played a few small flash games, browsed a few more pages, checked on my favorite "to be released" game, "Starcraft 2". With this occasion I found out (I'm probably the last one) that Blizzard Entertainment will release "someday" a new game, "Diablo III". Upon finding out something like that, I almost fell off my chair, Diablo being my all time favorite RPG (maybe the first one I've ever played, from what I recall). The game is currently in development and a release date has not been set yet. You can check out their website at www.blizzard.com/diablo3/ for more information and updates. Looks like Blizzard finally realized that there is a lot more to gaming that World of Warcraft, even if that has a huge base of fans. Ignoring the rest would be a mistake.

Drawing the line to make the total of the day, this Monday was something special. I could really use more days like this one. But I'm pretty sure that what I expected to happen today, will happen tomorrow, and probably even more. I need a vacation soon.

This is getting stupid!

My last post stated that The Yoboo will be reborn and that I will dedicate more time to keeping it alive. Or something like that. That was a lot of bull. I've said that so long ago and I realize now that I've made nothing to accomplish that goal. The Yoboo is still alone and ignored in his forgotten corner of the Internet.

Besides the fact that this ashames me (I'm almost sure that's not the way you spell ashamed at first person, but I was never very good with English grammar or spelling), it also irritates me. I hate when I say one thing and for one reason or another, or simply because of the lack of the necessary mood, I fail to accomplish what I plan.

The fact is that I have not forgotten about The Yoboo. In fact I kept on visiting the front page over and over again and there were times when I was almost ready to write something. But either I lacked the necessary mood, either something else came up (boss came with an "urgent" matter to attend to, a nice movie was on the TV, a friend wanted to hang out, and other stuff like that). But if I were to make up excuses, it would take you about 3 days to finish reading this :). And the only thing I would accomplish would be to make myself look like a jackass.

But still, something still remains. I recall I've said it before: I have no idea what The Yoboo is about. In it's early stages I was very sure The Yoboo would be a blog where I write about all sorts of graphics (drawing methods, nice tutorials and effects, cool photography, special drawing methods, and other things that would involve a visual graphical result). Soon after I've realized that there are other things I want to write about. Stuff like making money online, which I was (and still am) a beginner at, so I was to write about my experience. Soon after that, although the subject is very attracting and interests me very much, I guess I got bored or maybe realized that the expression "make money online" is in most cases associated with viral networking pages. I say in most cases because there are websites/blogs out there that really help you on the matter and offer really helpful tips.

After noticing that making money online is not what I want to be associated with, I can't even remember what I started to write about. It's been so long ago. The main idea though is that I almost figured out what I want to do with The Yoboo: nothing in particular. That's wright. Absolutely nothing in particular. It's not that I will abandon it. It's just that unlike most other blogs, The Yoboo will not have one theme of interest. As I remember saying before (maybe here, I'm not sure), I don't have only one hobby or area of interest. With that in mind, if you subscribe to the RSS feed or keep on visiting this blog often (although I doubt it) expect to see here anything from web design, Photoshop tutorials, CSS tips and tricks, PHP scripts, electronic gadgets, thoughts of the day to online or offline games and probably a lot more.

Basically, with these being said, I now declare The Yoboo a 100% pure personal blog, a mash of everything and anything that crosses my mind, a place of "pointless ramblings in the pursuit of something that is always just out of reach".
