Time flies fast when you're having fun. My blog turns one today and so many things have happened to me, the people around me, and the world in general.
Here's a recap of what happened in the year that past.
My first entry - a quick review about the first ever vegetarian restaurant I have visited; the start of my love affair with the Mini Cooper S Cabriolet; Easter Melbourne style; A glimpse of the city of Melbourne
My April fool's joke on Arnie; Melbourne Comedy Festival; Pope John Paul II dies; being propositioned by a female student in uni
My first Harry Potter Meet up; Q&A's; New Wave party; school blues; angsty feelings
More Q&A's; heaps of posts overflowing with my undying devotion to my fiance :)
Rialto run-up; realisations of a migrant; Billy Corgan gig; Live 8; Harry Potter fever; pimped my bessy :p
Tags; the start of the MLIM special; introduction to TFC; bessy coming to Melbourne; relationship dramas (not mine!); Jennie the gamer; Jennie the shopaholic ala Rebecca Bloomwood; Interpol gig
Got engaged! That post about "when is sex good" that started a whole barrage of crappy comments by a certain flooder who didn't know how to read (actually interpreted my reader's comments as my own ideas) let alone construct sentences correctly; tags; shopaholic series; bessy visited!
Engagement party pics; completed my first year of post grad studies
Got my Toshiba laptop; Things I have learned about the opposite sex - dig that comment by one idiot whom, for some reason, got the impression that "I've tasted every single man there is" - HA! Same person also concluded that I was the one who mentioned liking "monkey style sex" when, in fact, it was a comment posted by good friend Jayce (look at the trouble you brought upon me, Jayce - JOKE! hahaha!) - so many idiots out there who don't know how to read and interpret the things they have read
Ran for charity; feeling sad about not spending another Christmas in Manila; HP on audio; Same flooder started shitting me about Migs being a better match for me than Arnie, proceeded to say that they're "psychics" or something, also called me a "slut" in my own blog, became very vigilant against shit readers; HP and the Goblet of Fire on screen;
Changed my blog's appearance; flooder was back and posted shit stuff on my shoutbox - just deleted it all and laughed at the person for being pathetic; Australian open; Year of the dog; quarter-life crisis; the answer to the ultimate question; tags; more about the guide; New year's resolutions
Gold Coast holiday; my 28th birthday
Back to school;
Thanks to all the people who have been reading my blog and to the friends that I have made and have reconnected with because of this blog. It is what makes this exercise worth its while. I know that there are people out there who may not agree with my opinions and point of view on certain things, but I would much rather that we discuss it in a more adult and educated manner rather than resorting to childish name calling. I respect everyone's opinions, so please give me the courtesy and respect mine.
A special mention goes out to the following people:
Jayce - I love reading your posts, it's part of my everyday ritual. Your intelligent rants and honest musings inspire me to do the same.
Kiko - It was so nice to reconnect with you again. I like the fact that you seem to appreciate my honesty and not judge me for it. Cheers!
Jaz - Your sassiness and biatchiness is something that I admire about you. Small but terrible! How refreshing!
Galenlondeien - Thanks for your regular visits to my blog. In you I found a fellow HP fanatic!
Vayie - Your honesty, vulnerability, and strength shows in your writings. I truly enjoy your blog and am glad that you decided to keep blogging. Here's to many more years of blogging!
eLf - My music guru. Your passion and love for everything New Wave is so contagious. I wish you all the best in the world - you deserve it!
Here's heaps of sugary sweets going out to you! Cheers!
Now to celebrate this blog's anniversary, I have decided to give it a new home. Yes, in a week or so this link will no longer exist and will be transferred to a different host. I really wanted to finalise my "weeding out the idiots" project. I don't feel like police-ing my own site is necessary and it's a complete waste of time. I'd rather have just a few readers and hits but by people who respect me.
To my friends and readers, don't worry. I will send you the link via email so you can update your links within your blogs.
Thanks for your support guys and here's to a better and "new" MLIM!
