Midterm Week

0 investigated
Finally, I've made a post after a long week (Wait! The week hasn't ended yet). Though, it's still Saturday I still felt that I've had enough of a long week of midterm examinations. Midterm examinations are simply examinations mostly in the college or maybe only in college which put to a test or tests the learning of a college student with the first half of the semester. As for me, they really tested me, both figuratively and literally.

Last boring Wednesday evening, even though I should I not be bored because I've got loads of stuffs to study, I've come up to make this very simple ambigram. I was thinking of what I would post for this week and this is what it I thought. Well, it's very simple that when I saw that word, I immediately had an idea of what ambigram to make because it is almost an ambigram itself even though it hasn't been "ambigrammed" (there is no such word unless I put in at but of course not all entries in that site are words blablabla) or it has been "ambigrammed" already without our knowing. Whatever it is, I should end this lengthy intro to show what I'm referring to.

MIDTERM. Mirror Ambigram

Very simple. Even other ambigrammists can do this in their simple. However, I did this and ended having no much sleep. I'm still adjusting with Adobe Photoshop because it's a little bit of tiring to sketch an ambigram manually or just hand-drawn, scanning it and editing it so I can upload it and I'm so noob (amateur, novice, or neophyte; a term mostly used in gaming although I'm not really into that) with it (both with editing it from and making it) so I used Paint instead.

If I am making this manually, it'd be a burden for me to make mirror ambigrams because they're a bit confusing but with the aid of technology, it's fun (only if you knew how to do it) because you only have to make the other side then mirror copy it or flip it so becomes its exact reflection of the other side.

In this ambigram, M is very perfect for horizontal (or probably vertical, I forgot which is which) mirror ambigram and so is T. The D in here looks a little bit like a number 3 and the R in here is also like letter I but of course, if you're like me or you're me, you would read it the way I wanted you to read it.

P.S. Whoever reads this, pardon for the rampant presence of unnecessary stuffs (e.g. parenthesis, descriptions, like-this stuffs).

Careless. That is the word (of course, in my native tongue) that i keep on muttering after receiving the results in an exam in one of my subjects. In reality, I could've gotten a higher score, in fact the perfect score if only for that algebraic sign. Yes. The common mistake of students -- not carrying the sign and so that is what I exactly did.

Also, I'll be posting about some my book reviews here (even those that I have read like eons ago. Of course, I'll have to set the date and time). Well, they're not really reviews.

I'm Back!

0 investigated
I'm back just like what the title says. Either college life had been so cruel to me I had been to cruel to not think of such time to make a post in my blog. Well, even though nobody reads this blog but me I'll try to make posts as long I'd have that time.

For this instance, I'm posting one my worst ambigrams (or probably not an ambigram at all). I actually planned to post this exactly on my birthday but of course, I found no time of doing so and found no time making and even thinking of how to do this. If you notice,it's nothing of some remarkable sort. I can blame nobody except myself for not being able to think of any idea how to "ambigrammized" (there was no such word) the two words and for being so ignorant of editing stuffs.

It supposed to be read as two separate ideas: birth date and birthday. I posted this because there are some people who get confused with the two as one idea. The phrase "birth date" is simply "the month, day and year" (i.e. July 10, 1992) on which a creature is born. "Birthday" on the other hand is just simply "the month and the day" (July 10), which makes it the anniversary or the birth date.

I know that many scholars would easily know their differences and only few are puzzled with this but I can't think of any fitting post anyway.

Also, I'm planning to change my blog's name because it seems a corny one. I hope God will provide me the idea of a better name.

Date and time finished reading:
8-7-10, between 4:00-4:28pm, Phil time

-Finally. I finished this "bad, reptile, wide, miserable, austere, ersatz, vile, hostile, carnivorous, slippery, grim, penultimate" series (although in reality I don't really see some of the words used as fit to be used such as reptile, wide and others). And so Lemony is right. This series is entirely filled with unfortunate events. It is like a peeling onion that every time you peel it, you would regret that you did. Well, he was quite right about that because i kept on peeling the onion but unfortunately he was wrong; there was no glint of regret in me. As of now, I'm still engulfed by the mysteries left untold in the series. Perhaps, the series had come to its conclusion, but the mysteries had not. I think I'll have to search for the answers now and I hope I'll find them.

-late jud na upload. now lang ko kitag time to do so. Aside from that, medyo gisapot ko ani nga book. probably, mao ni ako hatest sa series (if dili ang last). That is why there won't be a lenghty description/reaction for this certain book-pic. [sigh!] This series is certainly getting in my nerves; I want to finish it right away hoping they'd soon be gone.

*Penultimate means next to the last.

-I am very eager to finish this series at least on or before "that day". Unfortunately, due to the upcoming distressing exams, I don't think I can make up to my goal. [sigh!] I can't say a lot because my feelings after reading this ain't that so fresh but anyway even if i uploaded this just right after I finished reading this, I still don't think I can type a lengthy description for that time I was really sleepy. And for now, I think I've got to be really studying. haha

-I think I'm getting so used with the misfortunes of the Baudelaires in this story and I think I must have been so excited that I did not stop reading until I finish this.

Woah! Wala na kaayu koy masulti ron, aside sa tungod kay gadali ko kay matulog nako, but tungod pud kay excited najud kaay kong humanon ni nga series nga wala nako ga-English.

P.S. if real book jud imu gibasa and not ebook, makita nimu nga baga jud ni nga book so dapat if mubasa ka ani nga book, i-budget nimu imu time or see to it na enough imung time sa reading speed of more than 300 pages. So, if you have plans to continue reading, follow my advice and not of what i really did which what really happened to me (see the time finished on top).
