Happy New Year
Hey, happy new year. How are you doing? I just came back from two NYE events with old and new friends.
One thing I wanted to point out was that... I literally became everything you wanted me to be. Not for you, but for me. For my own discoveries, my own explorations, my new beginnings.
That's what you taught me when you decided to make that choice. How much have you changed, as well?
I've met such a huge number of new friends, rebonded with old friends... it has taught me so much. I've learned to be myself more, don't hesitate, and just have fun.
Everything you wanted me to become, I naturally became that. I haven't been this consecutively happy in a long time.
Why do I feel so empty afterwards? I've lost count of how many events I've been to now, but every time after the fun is over, I go home and it's just. Silence. Such as now, it's 2 in the morning on New Year's, and I found myself writing this up the moment I came back home.
I know my old and new friends really like me now, and I like them too. I've become a happier and nicer person...
But what happens when the fun is over, after I go home?
I know this is what people tell me. I shouldn't go out so much, because in the end, other than the quality time and the bonding, they're also just distractions.
I've realized this only just recently, and I should be by myself more. Accept the truth, accept our fate... and embrace it. I had been going about this all wrong, but at the same time, my friends have shaped me into a better person, as well as my family. We're all adults now, and we can only keep growing from here.
I just wish I didn't feel this lonely every time I come home. I... should hike more, I guess. Stare at my phone less. Let life come to me.
I don't even know if you try to check up on me, or even remotely think about me as much as I think about you.
There are days I miss you, and there are also days I despise you. Deep down, I still care, because you were my first true love. (Heh, guess I'm finally revealing more of my feelings now, eh?)
Our chapter ended after those 8 long years. Soon, it'll be one year since then.
I admit, I still am waiting. I don't know if you even think about me, and I don't know if I should hope for it. Even then, I'm not sure what to do myself. I don't really know what I want, still. But what I do know is that I am enjoying life more full now...
My only issue is that feeling when I go home. I feel lonely.
I am lonely.

Hey again, it's been two months since my last update. Weird how I keep landing on the 19th, it's not even intentional.
How have you been? I need to cut back on my spending, especially for the holidays. It's been a little crazy, and I've been going out a lot and bonding with friends. It's almost Christmas after all.
I don't know if it's the same for you, but I still have a hard time getting back into anime or games. It has been awhile honestly. I don't even know if you think about this as much as I do, but I've been told numerous times I should move on. I told myself that I'll completely move on after April. After that one year. What do you think about that? Will you be okay with that?
I also don't even know if you check this site to be honest lol. I don't know what I'm expecting, if anything at all. I have been a lot happier, that's for sure, but there are days where I feel a little empty.
This usually happens when I come home.
That's why I need to go out as much as I can, as much as it hurts my wallet. I usually have to be around people, my friends.
If I still don't hear from you in the next couple of months, I'll take that as a sign that we'll be okay without each other.
I hope you're doing good too. I somewhat regret typing this entry, but whatever. You only live once, yo!

Hey There, Welcome Back
It's been exactly 4 months since my last update. How are you? How are you doing? Yes, you. =) I just wanted to let you know, I'm doing great. I've met a lot of new people in my life during this course of my life, and I've grown a lot as a person. I've developed new habits, taught myself new skills/hobbies... it's been good.
3 days ago, I discovered my "happy place," and I'll definitely be visiting that place back soon. It's a place I would go if I wanted to think, see the lights at night, see the sunset, etc... and it's so close by.
But how have you been? What have you been doing? Are you accomplishing new things in life? Learned new skills, met new faces? Have you re-bonded with your friends? Are you guys better friends now?
I've gone out a lot recently, went out to eat, became a better friend to everyone in my circle... I've been a lot happier. :)
I hope you have been too.

It's Been Awhile (Yet Again)
I didn't realize how much time has passed since then. So many changes, so many differences. It's been over 2 years already..? Wow. Today I realized something, although it should have been obvious. In this world, there is only so much people you can put your trust in. There are those who are willing to support you and believe in you, and there are those who hears only bits and pieces of you and suddenly paints an entire picture of you.
And then you run into a conflict. Are these people worth keeping in your life? Do you need this negativity?
The answer is, it depends. Sometimes, you just have to wait until they believe in you. Sometimes, both parties have to grow up a little. There is still so much more in life.
In general, I've been a lot happier. But then I'll have sad days, or even disappointed days. But who is to blame? The victim? The supporters? The one who hurt you? The new people?
I've learned today that you can't trust every person you meet. You can't act the same with every person you meet. Well of course, I knew that. I know that. But if I trusted you in the beginning, that means I was able to let go a little and talk to you.
But when you don't believe what I say, or you painted a picture of me in your head that's not actually me, AND not taking the time to reach out and ask me questions rather than criticize me, then I can only end up feeling disappointed.
I trusted you, I trusted you'd support me. But I will not eject you from my life, because I still care. I almost love you like how I love my family. One day, maybe we can get a better understanding of each other and eventually not crumble.
We all have our differences, preferences, changes, etc. But I understood where you were coming from. I have a lot to learn still, and so do you. In fact, no one ever stops learning.
So for future advice, for anyone who's reading this, learn the full story first. Don't jump to conclusions. Stop and listen. Grow a little. Love a little.

A Revived Blog..?
Hi all. It's 2016. The fact that this section hasn't been updated for over 3 years means I really want to blog about something. It's pretty much life in general, and it's probably a little negative; a little realistic. So here we go.
After entering the "more" real world since 2013, I started to realize a couple things, and it surely stood out so far in 2016. Trust issues. I can't seem to stress that enough, but people are so prone to trust issues. It happens in your personal life as well as your work life. The more you grow up, the more responsibilities people put on you. And here's the catch: You're doing an awesome job? Great! Now you're going to keep getting relied on for the same thing, probably a thing you hated doing in the first place but obligated to do it. In other words, people will take advantage of it because you've already done it! Being too kind to others? Great! They'll use that as an advantage because they can! Because you won't get mad at them! And even when you do call it out, they'll only temporarily change until you're open to doing what they ask for again, because they know you won't stay mad or angry for long!
That my friends, is called life. I used to think it's pessimism growing up, but no, it's not. It's realism. This is the real world, and it sure is a sad one. We start to lose trust in each other easier than ever everyday, because the other person can't get what they want from you, so then you end up working harder. But in the end, you're the one who's taking all the damage; all the blame. And the worst part? You can't avoid it.
I miss being a kid again. Kids have it easier; oblivious to the real world. They can rely on their parents and/or guardians and not have to worry about a thing in the world. Because as a kid, you automatically "trust" the closest adult next to you to take care of you. But like I said, as you grow up, you have to rely more and more on yourself. And when you learn to try to "trust" others, you uncover the truth behind their masks and that you can only trust yourself.
As far as I know, plenty of people get used everyday and not even realize it. It's only when it becomes overwhelming that they start to notice things like, "Hey, why am I wasting so much of my time and effort on this?" I wish it was that easy to let go... Sometimes, I wish I can move away somewhere far and tell no one about it.
Maybe then, I'll rightfully get acknowledged.

Welcome to My New Domain!
I have finally moved everything from my free subdomain account to this wings-x.net domain! Hurray! I bought this domain during my school year in January, when it was the start of my winter quarter of 2013. So now that the quarter ended, I deleted the minor things and have officially moved here. :) The reason why I bought this domain during the quarter was because it was for my Web II class. Everything also went well in this class, as I have received an A. Yay me!
Also, I have finally updated links and small contents. Everything should work and make more sense now. If you guys ever catch something not loading right, please contact me right away. Thank you and have a nice day.
