A page header, finally

See the new header?

Hey, that's a header! Trust me...

Okay, I'm just too conscious about this new header. It's my first-ever major page element here, you know. I'm not sure; maybe it looks like some kind of junky rectangular visual stuff bombarded with overloading crappy hokum or like it’s a data that shouldn't take up any space in the Internet at all.

Anyway, here's a point...I've been blogging since last year, but why in the world have I decided to put up a header just so lately?

Well, first off, I wasn't actually certain of maintaining a blog in the fist place. I believe (until now) that it would just snatch up time on my fussy studying agenda. I'm pretty convinced that my brain isn't in a sufficient composure for UP psyche standard, so I really do extra studying as much as I could (but unfortunately, I can only sense negligible progress yet, sigh). But at least, the 'singko' boxes on my class cards were still clean... no bombs yet.

What was more was that the wifi signals at our dormitory building were really so hostile of my wireless LAN card since I moved into a new room location this semester. The server antenna is too far from my room assignment, but I've got a theory that it's just my LAN card and my laptop that were the losers here, since I can't see any connection problems with my room neighbors.

Fine. But why is the world so cruel?

So much of the melodramatic lines...

Until now, I'm still on the stage of exploring and experimenting and adventuring with this blogging business yet. I ain't got a structured concept of my master plan for this blog actually. I just thought to keep updating posts a while more and eventually formulate the thing after some time.

As for my new header, I thought of experimenting a draft of it one night while scanning my image files and reminiscing the yet unpainted memories of my life (roll eyes...o.o).

I found a picture of my legs from last December and one of my paintings from last semester break at a room in a boarding house near the university campus (the picture with a seated girl). The title of the painting is "October Solitude" because I was encaged in a subjugating solitude in that room for more than two weeks in October doing nothing but paint, read books, write my journals, sleep, eat twice a day, and talk to myself - totally deserted from the outside world.
(Roll eyes again...o.o)

For the design, I only used the PAINT.NET software since my computer memory and hard drive are literally so poor to afford the better Photoshops.

The words at the bottom part are, well, they're actually just some sort of adders, or fillers, I think. But I'm planning of doing many articles about Maharlika, PROUT, Neo-Humanism, and vegetarianism in my future postings. I think that they're really worthy topics to discuss, and I'd truly love to do such with this blog (I just wish that time and the Ethereal elements would at least conspire with me for this).

So much for the out-of-the-world terms, eh?

Okay, so perhaps I owe some explanation for those words at the header...

Well, I'm corroborating with "Maharlika Movement" for the nonce. Briefly, this movement embodies the principle of Progressive Utilization Theory (PROUT), a socio-economic theory laid out by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar (a great Indian philosopher, author, and founder of Ananda Marga and Tantrik Yoga practices).

Being an advocate for animal rights with "People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)", I drew up my leading from Neo-Humanism, a philosophical paradigm also set out by Sarkar as a vision for human progress based on universal values and ethical principles.

As much as my intuition could manage, I always keep my hands off from the dusts of dogmas and self-assertions in my 'search' for 'meaning' throughout my educational career. At the time being, these matters are the most sensible bodies of knowledge that I've settled down with and have planned to explore.

O yeah, I'm growing up!

And so, I now decide to put an end to the tale of my new header here, before my blabbing could lead me somewhere else far from the virtual realms.

(Hey, and I'm planning to write about aliens and 'super beings', too! Lol.)
