ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
I’ve had this domain since 2003 for the sole purpose of using it as a journal/blog. This blog is about my journey through that thing called life.

A LIL’ BIT OF HISTORY
2000 was when I stumbled upon the blogging world. I started out at AsianAvenue.com and then moved to GeoCities. That was also when I got into web designing & coding (html, css style sheets, etc.)–self-taught. In 2001 was when I bought my first domain in order to have full editing control when it came to designing my website. It became a favorite pastime of mine, and soon found online friends who shared the same hobby, and most of them happened to be mommy bloggers as well. I’ve always made time to redesign my website and layout using my favorite software, Jasc Paintshop Pro, which I would do almost every other month, as well as updating my blog on a daily basis. It was fun checking out my online friends’ new web design and reading their blogs.  That was the good old days.  Not until 2006/2007 is when this hobby managed to slip to the bottom of my priority list. Unfortunately, it still is at the bottom of the list. However, I still would manage to sneak in a post when I have the time for it. So be sure to subscribe to my blog for any updates. (^_^)

REASONS WHY I BLOG
I blog because I like to write and to chronicle the occurrences in my life. As a teenager, I had a diary that didn’t start out as a diary but a notebook dedicated as letters in which I intended to send to my BFF who was living in NYC at the time. We’ve been BFFs since I were 9. (I’m a year older.) She moved away from the Philippines when I was in the 5th grade to CA and then moved to NY a couple of years later. Unfortunately, I lost her new address after she moved to New Jersey when I was 15 and never mailed it out to her as planned. (I wonder if she lost my address too.)  I still have it in storage. So sometimes when I blog it feels like I am writing to her. Last but not least, this blog also serves as an outlet. I can turn to my blog to release whatever thoughts are consuming my mind, which is what’s nice about having a journal because it can be therapeutic.

DISCLAIMER
This website is a private blog/journal. Most of the people I know personally (in real life) do not know about this website. I prefer to keep it that way. I don’t blog for attention nor do I blog to gain as my readers as possible. I never cared for popularity. But what I do care about is making connections and forming friendships.

If you happen to be offended with what I write, feel free to exit. I don’t expect anyone to agree with my thoughts and opinions. The opinions expressed in my blog/journal represent my own. What I choose to share on my blog/journal is my business.

Be warned, I can sometimes cuss as bad as a sailor. I try to censor myself as best as possible, but sometimes I feel that I can express myself better with cuss words, although some may feel it’s unnecessary.

This is my safe place.
