"Why then the world's mine oyster, which I with sword will open."

That awkward moment after you haven’t seen each other in too long


Like when you run into an old acquaintance at the grocery store after work, frazzled from a long day, trying to rush so that you could get home and prepare dinner while thinking about the forty other deadlines clamouring for your attention. You distractedly try to carry on a conversation, while being painfully aware how obvious it is that you’re not quite sure how to conduct yourself after such a long separation.

That is how I feel about blogging right now. And how I have been feeling about it for a while. So now the question is: how do I re-enter the blogosphere gracefully?

My last post lamented my lack of blogging when I worked full time over the summer. Then I had went on vacation to Hong Kong and upon my return, had to prepare for school. I had figured that I’d be able to blog during school as I had previously, but it turns out I had severely underestimated the difficulty and the workload.

I do want to thank everyone for their kind inquiries regarding my absence. Each put a smile on my face. And I assure you that I hold you close at heart. In fact, sometimes I find myself commenting on the weather in Vancouver, the lack of Sephoras in Belgium, the lackluster malls in Ottawa, the shopping in India, cosmetics available in Singapore, and so on and so forth. And my friends look at me oddly and wonder how I know these things.

I can guarantee nothing but my promise to try to keep up. There is so much I want to say. If only I could type as fast as I think! It would sure help with school. Wouldn’t we all have so much more time?

  1. *Waves from Belgium*

    So nice to see a new post, girly! Life does get in the way sometimes eh πŸ™‚

    Just do what you can and what you feel like. Even if it means a post every two weeks or so, it’d be great to read about what you’ve been up to!

    Good luck with school!

    • Sunny! πŸ™‚ life does get busy, but I’m sure it does for everyone… although my new resolution is to try to spend a little bit of time on the WordPress app when I’m on the bus! It’s a little sad, huh? Haha

  2. welcome back? is it safe to say? πŸ™‚
    are you done school now? Sounds like you’ve been a globe trotter! Cant wait to hear all the stories on your blog πŸ™‚

  3. Welcome back! We miss you!!!

  4. So glad you’re back in the blogosphere!! I missed you!! Hope to hear more from you soon!

    Commenting on the weather in Vancouver- haha I assure nothing interesting, except that it hasn’t rained in Sept yet.

  5. Oh – I know all too well about running into old acquaintances! It is a bit of a mixed bag really, some people I can easily just talk to and be relaxed, while others is oh-so difficult!

    I’m trying to get back into regularly scheduled blogging as well, but it is just so hard to sometimes.

    • Absolutely – life is overwhelming sometimes! I think I always err on the side of caution when I run into old acquaintances, just in case people have changed beyond what I remember.

  6. It would only be more awkward if you don’t know how to handle it if those old acquaintances suddenly come up with personal things they read on your blog πŸ˜‰
