Starting on a clean slate.

March 10, 2012  |  Ramblings

As some of you might have noticed, this blog has been undergoing some changes here and there. I have been spending quite some time trying to find out exactly how I want to shape this blog. And you know what, the old entries aren’t going to help and so with a click of a button, I decided to trash them all and start on a clean slate.

Yesterday, I was in Malaysia with my family. Somehow, I am not sure if it was due to the weather or I already caught the flu bug, I suddenly developed a fever and felt terrible. The moment I reached back home, I ate some cherry tomatoes and went to bed. (I ate the tomatoes because I think they are going to spoil soon and they were not exactly relevant to helping me feel better.)

It was in my flu-laden dreams that I started to review my life. You know, it is always during these times of discomfort when you start feeling sorry about yourself and get a little bit depressed. It is only natural and a passing phase, I hope.

I’ve been blogging since the end of 2002 and the blogs have undergone many transformations. It started off as a diary to document the trivial stuff that happened everyday. A blog entry literally went:

Today, I went to school, met up with Luyee and we slept through our lectures. Haha. I wonder how am I going to graduate in 4 years time if this goes on.

Upon hindsight, it does seem a little silly back then, but honestly speaking, I was 19 years old and what could you expect from a 19 year old? Thank goodness, I did grow up as I grew older. My blog went from mindless blogging, to sharing of technical stuff (literally programming routers and sharing Java and C codes), to sharing my thoughts and documenting some important events in my life.

Then I stopped. Mainly because I got involved in after school activities (legal ones! I’m a good girl :p) like starting a non-profit tech based organisation in my final school year and I didn’t want my professors to track me and think that I wasn’t doing my school projects. And I stopped because I had nothing that I could share anymore.

Then the years passed by. 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and now 2012.

The important events, my thoughts and realisations in these few years have literally turned up blank in my memory, except for a few pictures here and there on Facebook. There were no more documentation of any sort. There were a couple of entries on this domain, but they were not meaningful at all.

Yes, “meaningful” being the keyword here. The epiphany that came to me while I was tossing and turning in my bed.

My Afro Hair - 2005

So at the break of dawn at 6am yesterday,  (I was up this early because I hardly slept the night before from my flu.) I decided that it’s time to get back into some blogging action. I will start off on a clean slate and not let the past entries influence my current ones.

I want to crystalize my realisations, talk about life, talk about food, talk about acting, whine, de-stress, talk about anything under the sun. You know what, I just realised that my new intentions aren’t that different from the ones that I had when I started my first blog in 2003. Zomg. But hey, still show me some love and smile any way ;)

Dionis, signing off.
