Post-emancipation 2: Hop, Skip, and a Week

In a relationship, a break could either mean “cool off” or “break up”, and between me and my blog- it’s probably the former. Indeed it has been a fun ride, and I spent many a sleepless night going over comments, gripes, and raves. Accolades were always a plus, though the fulfillment I found was not in them, but in the freedom I enjoyed as I expressed myself. Sitting gleefully in front of my laptop or even just a piece of paper, I would spend hours just scribbling away. Writing stories I never finish, and opinions ranging from serious to silly.

But alas, reality sets in and along with it comes deadlines, reports, return demonstrations, exams, and papers. Strangely enough, in this state of complacency I have managed to maintain favorable marks. But I also feel I’m treading on thin ice, and any moment now my GWA might slip, so I need to make the move. Yes folks, the crazy in me is taking a leave.

Before I bury my nose in textbooks and a myriad of school work in my most stoic and unemotional manner, I again would like to say thanks to all the people who inspired me to blog. And to those who take time to read my entries and comment- in a way you have become a big part of my blogging life.

I never meant to antagonize anyone with my posts here, so if ever I said anything nasty- I apologize. Don’t worry, God always evens out the score, and in one way or another I bet I already paid for it (probably the time when another person did the same thing to me, or perhaps the time I slipped on a banana peel. Just kidding.), I hope I’m forgiven.

I guess there will always be people who will be vicious and mean, whether in real life or in cyberspace- but I’ve decided I’ll just be the bigger person. No more exchange of harsh words or retaliations; I’ll just walk the other way.

With that said, I’ll leave you with a few lines from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran , one of my favorite authors.

“It was but yesterday we met in a dream.
You have sung to me in my aloneness, and I of your longings have built a tower in the sky.
But now our sleep has fled and our dream is over, and it is no longer dawn.”
