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. 😆
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!
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:
My Desktop Free View Instructions:
A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.
You can do a screen capture by:  Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).  Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).  If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.
B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.
C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.
D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.
