It has been quite a while since I was last blogging so irregularly.
During the best times, I used to be blogging once every other day so it makes me a little sad that I have less reason / motivation to write.
I did try to write a few entries during the past month, but always ended up in the trash.
I write about language learning, but now that I don’t actively spend so much time studying, I find it hard to write about the topic without coming off as repetitive. In the rare moments when I have time to study, I rather do the actual studying rather than blog about it.
The few times I wanted to write about more general stuff, I ended up deleting them since I didn’t quite like the idea of putting too much of my personal life online.
Recently, I’ve been (even) more careful about the stuff I put online, so instead of mulling over it, I’ll just not post.
This explains my absence.
I’ll try to view it positively and see it as a motivation to set aside more time to study so I will have things to write and share again!
Just to share some recent updates:
(1) I need to study for JLPT (I can’t believe it’s 2 months away!)
(2) I have been putting effort to become better in Mandarin Chinese (I started a notebook!!)
While Mandarin Chinese is my Mother Tongue, it is not the language that I’m the most comfortable with, especially in more formal situations.
I’ve been consistently reading in Chinese since high school and in the recent few years, it’s the language that I read most in (for leisure).
Time to put in even more effort ^^
I’m sorry that I haven’t been writing much, it also makes me sad when I see many of my language-learner friends set aside language learning to focus on other aspects of life.
And then I get even sadder when I see myself doing something similar, although languages and my life is pretty much bound together at this point in time.
The absence might continue for awhile more, but I’ll come back a better version of myself. (:
I cannot express how thankful I am to this space and everyone whom I met through this blog.
There’s just too much to give up.
