Hello! Just another update that I’ll be making at midnight, because my flu has been keeping me awake and I have nothing better to do.
I know it’s been a while since my last post, and I really feel sad about it. 🙁 I have no excuses to be honest, most of the time I just forget, and when I do remember I don’t have any inspiration for it. However, once I start typing something like this (an effortless post), all blogpost ideas start rushing all over my head again. I promise I’ll be keeping notes this time and will even set an alarm for posting!
Anyway, you know the drill. You know Life Lately posts for sure. My sick and lazy butt cannot be bothered to make a collage or choose photos, so this post will just be full of bullets of what I have been up to these days.
Spent the first day of the year going for a trail to see these beautiful Sweet Gum Trees.
I am so glad I tagged along with my parents. It’s actually not my first time in the place (Tai Tong, Yuen Long) but for my first time I went to the Lychee Valley and Strawberry Fields. I didn’t know that this beauty exists there!
If you’re visiting Hong Kong and curious on how to get there, you can ride a Green Taxi or ride the K66 bus 🙂
Hi! I’m making this draft on the 26th already but still I wanna greet you (whoever you are) a Merry Christmas.
Just so you know, I am trying my best to sum up all the courage to post something as personal as this. I loved sharing and I remember my tumblr blog was an online diary to me, but then I just stopped. I was young and naive and didn’t know my limits; and so fifteen year old me just started to never share anything personal at ALL. Through the years, I also developed this habit of suppressing any negative feelings or my problems inside which makes it worse (trust me, hiding your feelings don’t benefit you anything). For some reason I am so anxious making this post huhu but whatever here goes nothing!
Let’s begin with this — this Christmas I don’t really know what to feel.
If you are a friend of mine and have been following my blog journey, you know that I already launched Where My Arrow Points maybe a year ago? Wow, I’m not really sure! Hahahhaha
But school work had gotten in the way and I started neglecting it, and then by the time that I’m already available to post more, my blog was compromised and google blacklisted my domain. 🙁 I didn’t really know what to do by that time, I thought I can just redeploy my whole website and start from scratch (which I did). I just found out recently while setting up this blog that I have to take ownership of my website on Google and report them that I’ve done some actions to remove the malware.
I blame my cheap hosting package (1,2 php for 1 year?! what do you expect from that lol) plus the nulled theme that I used for that.
But hey, we’re back now and stronger than ever (lol). I changed hosting (using SiteGround now which is waaaaay better than hanephosting) thanks to Ate Daisy who lent me her credit card, and to my boyfriend who paid my theme for me as a birthday present! Setting up this blog was so convenient because of the paid theme and it also feels good to support web devs out there. 🙂
I was so excited and committed to bringing my blog back to life that I even did a mini photoshoot so I can have a self-portrait for my about me section hahaha. (Continue Reading if you want to see them!)
