Happy 27th Birthday Adun!

October 5, 2011 | Author: | In: Everyday Life, Featured

Wow another year has blow past me without me realising and all of a sudden I’m now 27. Life isn’t getting any easier as you get older as so many things change in such a short space of time. So many good things and bad things have happened and I don’t know where to start.

I guess the first thing would be that I changed jobs. My previous job was effectively killing off opportunities to expand my skills, or should I say it was making me go backwards by developing at 2001 coding standards. Where I work now is pretty awesome and I’m learning quite a bit about the world of e-commerce. Not to mention the salary is better. The downside? Well I no longer do iPhone development but I should probably look back at getting into it.

Having attended an AKB48 theater performance last year in Japan, my fandom for the group grew exponentially where it came to a point I was watching a lot of AKB48 related shows that I ended up not watching anime for a while. I can proudly say that my oshimen is Sashihara Rino!

Being a developer, I spend most of my time in front of the PC coding away for a solid 8 hours a day at work. My overall health wasn’t too good and I was actually overweight. So I decided to finally get into shape by cutting out a lot of unhealthy foods, drink heaps of water, and joining the gym. Since the start of this year I have managed to lose about 11 kgs and at this point I’m about 5 kgs away from my goal weight. let’s hope I can reach that before the end of the year!

Of course the bad things have to come with the good. The most major thing that happened was when I crashed my car, and recently the starter motor died. It pained me greatly to have damaged my car after having owning it for 7 years already and it still goes on strong. But the good news it is currently getting repaired I should see it again soon.

Last year I mentioned about moving forward in life and unfortunately this year I haven’t moved forward all that much. As I’m dangerously moving closer to 30 the next year will definitely be a serious time for future planning. I have effectively stopped buying things online as my collection is already quite large. In fact I am considering selling some items off but I shall see. But right now, it’s time for some cake.

Congratulations on your 27th anniversary, mate. I understand the perils of the big 3-0, but let that not be a major cause for concern.

Hearing that you lost weight gives me confidence to start my own (albeit short-circuited) weight management… maybe next year. (Rushing for exams at this time …)

Here’s to many more years to merry health and enjoyment. Cheers! 8D

I have been doing freelancing for 3 years now and spending most of my time on a computer has affected my weight. A lot of my friends are commenting on the size of my belly. I congratulate you on loosing 11 kgs which I think is impressive. I am sure there are more improvements to come. I am curious about your collection and hope to see it someday.

Happy Birthday ^^. I picked up other hobbies too which have taken me away from the world of anime. I’m still reading/watching but just not as much as before.

A bit late but happy 27th birthday Adun!

I know exactly what you mean about 30 feeling so much closer. Time is moving incredibly fast and I also feel like it’s time to get stuff in order and on the right track.

Still, I am almost 27 but I still buy figures….just not as much. Also, I am trying to reach 30 with no regrets. Things like starting a family and getting a civilian job are all things I’d like to do.

There’s still time but it feels like everything is speeding up….as if we are already over the hill and are now running downslope to the other side. =P
