I Am Back!


Ha! So you thought I had abandoned the blog (well, to be honest, I kind of did). However, I am back, with several things to say.

Firstly, my excuse: College. Yep. I will be attending UCSD this Fall, and getting prepped for it has been craaaazy. Seriously, the amount of things you have to do to get into college is through the roof. I’ve been stuck by needles three times now with a fourth poke coming all for the sake of higher education.

Furthermore, my mom is out of the house in Singapore, so I have to help house-keep, and that is no easy task mind you. And also, I needed to recover after finals. I have been sick for around three weeks now and it is just now getting better, I think.

All that aside, I am glad to be back and writing, and I do need to update you guys on several things (so this is June’s reflection post).

Firstly, I will get back to posting Eternity on Fridays. Once again, all the crazy stuff threw me for a loop, and so I had to put a hold on that, but it will be happening once again! As for the other story that I hinted at before completely disappearing, that idea has evolved and birthed a new, and better idea that I am working on currently.

Also, I want to link my blog back up to my Twitter account. I used to post on my Twitter account whenever I posted on here, but I stopped after a while because I got lazy. Not anymore! Anybody interested can now find me on Twitter where I hope to post more regular updates on what I’m doing and how things are going.

For some personal updates, yes, I am attending the University of California San Diego this Fall, where I will be studying Mathematics-Computer Science in Sixth college. I plan to live on campus and I plan to work (hopefully) for the first time. I’m very excited about that. However, that will not be happening until August.

In more recent news, my girlfriend Anna will be coming to visit in two days. She’ll be staying for a couple of weeks, and I am very excited about that. So expect to see posts talking about that both here and on Twitter.

I think that’s pretty much all I have to say. I’ve got some projects that I’m working on currently, but those will have to stay a secret until they are in a more solid state. I hope to update you guys on them soon. I’d really like to make this blog more than it has been in the past.

Alright, that’s it for now.

Sorry about the lack of posting of Eternity chapters in the previous number of days that can be counted. That was a deliberately awkward sentence if you could not tell. Regardless, I did indeed miss posting the second chapter of Eternity last Friday, and only managed to post it today because of the two exams that I had (one this morning, and the other last night). Both were math exams, so I hope you can forgive my tardiness. However, the post is now up, and you can find it here.

Beyond that, I need to update the posting schedule widget on the left side of my blog, since it is now an outright liar about what is coming up next. Apart from Eternity, I don’t have any real plans for anything regular (regular? *snicker snicker*) on my blog, but I may have another story coming out at irregular intervals soon. I have ideas, just need to get writing.

That’s pretty much it. Basically, sorry for my bad blog-behavior. And I really need an apologies category.

Hey Guys

So, your most inconsistent blogger ever is back. I don’t know how long it’s been since I last posted anything, and I don’t really want to check because then I might get even more depressed. But this post is here for a couple of things. First I’m going to tell you why I was gone. Then I’m going to tell you what I’ll do about it. And finally I’ll talk about what happened to Cheridith Chronicles.

Anyway, the truth of why I’ve been away so long is that I have been very, very depressed. I won’t go into all the details as to why, but suffice to say, a lot happened over the summer, and not all of it was good, so that when I came to tackle my obscene course load this school year, I did subpar. This sent me further down the spiral of depression, to the point where I no longer really felt like writing, so that when I did, the stuff I produced was garbage, and I hated it.

In fact, that has been the main reason that has prevented me from posting my writing. I’ve just been really hating my writing. I went down a path of extreme self-criticism, and my writing took a huge blow as a result. I basically lost all confidence in it, and I’ll admit I’m still feeling pretty shaky. Because of the intense glaring eye that I pointed at my work, present and past, I started to even dread the thought of writing, let alone posting on this blog.

But I’m back. Why?

Because I’ve decided not to care anymore.

I’m not going to worry about whether I think you guys will hate what I write. I’m just going to do my best and write, like I’ve always done, throw on a below-perfect layer of editing, and post it. I think that’s what made this blogging experience so rewarding for me. The freedom that came with just being able to pen my thoughts out on paper and put them up there for you guys to read was nonpareil, and I’d like that again. So that’s what I’m going to do. Good, bad, beautiful, ugly, it’s all coming up here, and you guys can do whatever you want with it.

As for following all the blogs I used to follow, I simply don’t have the physical capacity or energy that I used to have. School has really drained me, and what with the depression I’ve been struggling with, it’s awfully hard for me to sit here and just let loose. It’s so very tempting to let the ever-present thought of school creep back in and ruin how I feel. So I’ll try to read around and comment and like, but no promises. And I know it sounds like I just threw a whole bunch of excuses in your face, and maybe I did. Sorry.

As for what happened to Cheridith Chronicles, a couple of things happened to it. Number one, I decided that I didn’t have time for the original idea. Then I didn’t have the confidence to turn it into an actual novel. So then I turned it into a super-secret movie script that I only just recently shared with my girlfriend. I’m at the point in the scriptwriting that I can’t really turn it back into a novel, but if you guys are interested in reading it, I could try posting the script up here as I progress on it.

I also want to try to revive and finish the two novels that I sort of had going in the background but never completed: Storyteller and Right Behind You, but we’ll see how that turns out. That’s all there really is from me guys. I might post something after this, just to push this depressing post further down in my feed, but we’ll see.

I guess here’s where I say I’m back?

P.s. I also cannot stand how WordPress brought back the default uncategorized category. Grrr….

Sorry… Again?!??!

Maybe this cat will make you more forgiving...

Maybe this cat will make you more forgiving…

I have betrayed you guys so much… I could literally have a category for saying sorry. XP Anyway, what’s my excuse this time? Well, I went away to a church camp for a week, got a lot of stuff done there, did a lot of cool Bible studies and the like, and then right after that, with only a week for preparation, we left on a six week long road trip all over America, during which the internet was terrible and so I was unable to do anything with the blog, as well as the fact that I just plain didn’t have the time to write. Sorry =/

I’m back now though. I arrived two days ago. Spent all day yesterday working on college apps… Yikes. XP Anyway, after doing all that, I’ve decided to return to my blog today (just as school is starting, smart, I know XP). I’ve got a lot of stuff I’m doing though, in relation to college prep and school prep for my senior year. I’ve got a bunch of classes this year =P Six APs, and a total of ten courses, the other four all being college-level. So yeah, a heavy course load. Despite that, I’m gonna try to keep up with this blog for as long as I can.

Also, I will quickly make a spoiler here, for an upcoming post, something very exciting actually happened to me on the road trip I went on, and it has to do with a girl…

I just realized how bad that sentence sounded. XP Trust me, I didn’t get up to anything weird, and as you’ll see later today, it was actually a very happy time for me =)

So, I don’t know if you guys have run out of patience for my constant apologies, but I’m back, and if you’ll welcome me yet again onto your reader/feed/email, I promise to do my best to yet again, write a load of content for you guys. Enjoy! 🙂

My sincerest apologies, mea culpa, 对不起

I'm sorry. :(

I’m sorry. 😦

So, yes, I do owe all you guys an apology. Where have I been for the past two days? Well, on Monday I had a fit of exhaustion, and my time was all tied up, and Tuesday was just a bad day. However, I’m back now, and I hope to catch up on everything I missed. Tuesday’s Song will be coming out soon, as will a chapter of Cold Hands and The Storyteller. I also have some pictures to do, and I might write a poem. So look forward to all that. 🙂 Once again, my apologies. Thanks for understanding.

Yeah um….

Itchy heads anyone? I have an itchy neck...

Itchy heads anyone? I have an itchy neck…

So what happened yesterday? You might ask. To tell the truth, I fell asleep before meaning to, and that was the end of it. What can I say? At least I’m consistently late…. That’s no good at all. Don’t worry. I’ll double up today and you’ll have all the posts for yesterday and today. Look forward to that. 🙂
