The New Year and The Social Network

I don't know if there are people following this blog but Happy New Year to you whoever you are reading this post right now. I wish you lots of blessings for 2011. :)

Well, it's been ages since my last post where I sorta promised to blog more often. Sorry self and sorry blog, I failed to keep that promise. But I have been, from time to time checking this account and logging in just in case I get the urge to write but unfortunately I am too guilty about a lot of things that I don't think continuing to blog or be crazy about Kpop or be up to date with the latest movies are still things I am entitled of. Yeah. Things kind of got ugly and sad the past couple of months so I decided to lie low from my addictions (well except for Facebook and tumblr, they're the only things that kept me sane all these months). But it's the new year and screw the self imposed punishments, I'll just try again. So here I am again.. Writing. I don't know when the next post will be but let's just see.. Whatever goes. I'm just trying to pick myself up again and I think re-living this blog will help. I hope.. It's a new year so it's a good time for a new start..

So this morning I watched The Social Network. Great movie.

It's amazing how (according to the movie) Facebook was born because of a Harvard student who got dumped. Haha! All throughout the movie I was thinking,, "So all of these Facebook effect started because of a girl." Mark Zuckerberg, who by the way is Times' Person of the Year, is a real genius. Before watching the movie, I didn't really know or even care about the story how Facebook was created. But after watching it, I thought he's really amazing but also an idiot. Haha! Because at the end of the movie, he was adding Erica Albright on Facebook and was waiting for her to accept his friend request. I mean after being the youngest billionaire today, he still cares about that girl. Crazy. But.. I did a little research after, and what a relief, the movie did not accurately tell the real story of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg says that the movie got a lot of stuff wrong and random details right. Hmm.. Of course.. But I don't really care right now. Haha! It was a cool movie and I enjoyed it. How I wish I had Mark Zuckerberg's programming ability.. It also reminded me how precious a simple idea can be.. Damn.
