If you are still following this blog despite the fact that I stopped posting for at least 2 years, then all I can really say is: Thank you!
I feel the need to explain why I stopped posting, and why I deleted all the posts. There were a lot of factors that came into play, and to be honest, I don’t really know how I can explain them clearly.
I was still at University when I started the blog. It was just a place where I usually talk about television series, books, and films. I’m still surprised by the attention that I got. I mean it wasn’t A LOT, but people read my blog and commented on my posts, and it was great! So I kept doing what I’m doing, and I loved every minute of it.
Like all college students, I’ve always been plagued with questions about my future. I shifted from one course to another just to align it with my interests and my plans, which means I had to adapt to the culture and catch up with the lessons of my new degree program. I had episodes of total anxiety and doubt. I didn’t know if my efforts were enough, I didn’t know if I’m going to survive the present, let alone plan for a future.
So I quit.
Maintaining a blog during that time seemed tedious. I went through a phase where I didn’t want to write anything, or do anything. I had isolated myself with my books, my series, and my chocolate frogs. That’s when I deleted all my posts.
If you’re still reading this, I really don’t know how to explain my thought process during those times. I felt like I was slowly sinking in quick sand, and the more I move and force myself to do anything, the more I sink.
It is important that I mention what kept me from being engulfed completely by my own anxiety.
I met a group of people who are like me, in terms of interests, world views, and hobbies. Getting to know them is like being handed a huge branch to hold onto as I was struggling to get out of that quick sand. I relaxed a bit, and my life finally had direction.
As I’m writing this now, I’m reminded of the people who have gone through, and are going through the same experience as mine. I just want you to know that if you need someone to rant, rave, or just have a conversation with, dude, I got your back. Not everyone has the support system that they need to make them forget about their anxiety, their fears, their doubts. And if you are that person, I want to make myself available to you.
I guess I wanted to do the stuff that made me happy, now that I am happy again.
So, I’m re-launching this blog. I’m still in the process of re-constructing and designing it, but as of the moment, I AM BACK.
A Vlog is in the works as well, for things that require flailing hands and weird facial expressions.
I’m going to be experimenting quite a bit with what the blog will look like and how to make it look better, and for you, it’s going to be really confusing. But I’ll make sure that whatever comes out of my trial and error tests will be worth it.
Well, that’s really it. Congratulations for making it through that whole mess of a post.
See you soon!
