A look at My Desktop: Gundam Wing or Naruto

Moving on from the tragedy, paranoia, bickering and finger-pointing of the Glorietta 2 bombing, it’s time to move on a little bit with this blog. Today, I finally got the time to do this ‘My Desktop Free View‘ meme/tag from Jaypee which was started by iRonnie.

It all started with his realization that;

Most people spend a considerable amount of time in customizing or in finding a desktop wallpaper that suits their taste. Sadly, our computers often remains… personal. Why don’t we brag to the world our good-find wallpapers and let them have a peek to our personality via our desktops?

Desktop wallpapers has always captured my fancy. One habit I developed before I got to own my own desktop PC was to change the wallpaper of the PCs I rented back then, which was ages ago, regardless of which rental shop it was. Some of the owners who didn’t welcomed that little habit of mine eventually warned me to stop ‘personalizing’ their PCs.

In the back of my mind, “Okay, then why even bother to call them ‘personal’ computers if that’s the case?” Come to think of it, that habit became my signature. πŸ˜†

98% of all the wallpapers I’ve used since then were anime-based. In particular the ones I used featured custom designs by fans of the Gundam Wing series (which is my all-time fave of the Gundam universe) that I’ve collected from the internet since my highschool days. Further proof that I’m so much of a Gundam Wing fan, the wallpapers I still use today were the very same wallpapers I collected some 6 years ago.

Need I say more? Just have a look at my desktop:


I try to keep my desktop as clean as possible. My room is already a big mess and so the clean desktop is some relief, plus it’s a must if I ever want to increase my productivity. My close friends would raise an eyebrow once they see this screencap. ‘Coz there’s not a single icon to a PC game can be found on my desktop! :mrgreen:

Unbelievable? Fear not, the game icons are all inside the Quick Launch menu. I forced my self to placing all of it in there because gaming + academics + extra-curriculars + social work + blogging = very, very, very chaotic and unproductive lifestyle.

Already there are so many desktops to see and each has a unique story. I just hope the 5 persons I’m going to tag will enjoy this meme as well. They are:

Sonnie of Sonnie’s Porch
Arvin of Arvin Astig
Gelay of Derpinsel
Jong the Geeklamador
Rob of Rob and the blogosphere
