Returning Soon!

If I got a nickel for every time I said that I was going to come back and post more, I'd have almost a dollar by now... or at least 50 cents!

Its been a pretty busy ride for me.  But if you were to ask me what I've gotten done, the answer is probably "nothing".  Nothing extravagant or praise thirsting, that is.  This is going to be one crazy and fun-filled summer and it already started before I was even ready!  Have you noticed that when you hope for time to stand still or at least slow down, it just seems to speed up even faster than it did before you asked it to turn down the pace?  I guess time and life is just as hard headed as I am.

These past few months, I've learned a lot about people closest to me, which includes myself.  I learn new things about myself everyday and I have to admit that I didn't know myself as well as I thought I did.  I still surprise myself at times (and yes, I do jump). 

Well, I promise to come back and elaborate on everything I have been meaning to for the past few months.  I just got an email today that excite me and made me realize that I should keep up with my blog more than I have been lately.  The number of readers I have still amazes me.  For awhile, I thought that no one read my blogs, but as the time goes by, I've noticed that I would get more responses on my posts (no matter how meaningless).  Also, the messages/emails/tweets that you readers send me are constant reminders that I am not really writing or talking to myself... I am talking to you!  Thanks for listening, by the way.  I honestly don't know why I stopped writing (publicly).  There's a part of me that somewhat wishes that my blog was anonymous and no one knew who the author behind this blog was so that I can be free to write and say whatever I want without stepping on toes.  But on the contrary, I love getting responses and comments from YOU (readers and responders) who let me know when I am out of line or when they concur.  Its those comments that remind me that I am human and my opinion is sometimes not the best, but I also have my moments when there are others who have already walked the path that I am about to start on or are currently on the same journey as I am.  And THAT is what makes it much more fun.

I have been blogging for years and years... it may not have been here on blogspot.com, but it had been everywhere you can imagine.  My friends used to make fun of me or think that I was silly for doing so... and often teased me fore spending too much of my time doing it.  Whats funny is that all of a sudden its the new "in" thing and there is so much hype about it when I was just getting over it.  I feel that blogs are a way for you to express yourself, not attempts to impress others.  Oh well... we all write with different purposes and I shouldn't let others' purposes turn me off and away from mine. 

Before I ramble about sweet nothings like I usually do, let me sign off and take a breather before I get back into my blogging streak.  Talk to you soon!


  1. I'm the same. You know, I actually took like a 6 month hiatus from blogging when my old site got hacked. We rescued it and then I stopped writing altogether for a good long while.

    There was a select few readership that was still there. It was nice. Made me feel loved.

    I've been blogging since like 1999 (seriously), and for real on actual blog sites like LJ, Xanga, Blogger, Wordpress since like 2002-03... You stop for awhile and then you come back. There is something gratifying and humanizing about speaking with people across the globe in one "place."

    Mae Lu, thereafterish.
