200th1st Post!

Oops. I wasn't really paying much attention to my posting on the blog. Turns out I went past the 200th mark without realising it. So instead I'll celebrate the 201st post today as a milestone. The 100th post wasn't really much of a post even, just some notice about me going for a holiday and being offline for a while. As if this post is going to be much better...

To be honest, not all of the previous 200 posts contain proper quality content. Some are just random thoughts popping out, some are just fillers when I couldn't think of anything original. Well there isn't a strict rule out there saying that bloggers MUST come up with good quality content on the blogs, but somehow when I try to go for that goal it seems a bit more satisfying?

Buildup

And now begins both a happy and a sad time in this year of my life.

The first semester of 2011 has ended. Well for my school it already did yesterday since the staff went to enjoy themselves at Sentosa. I've seen photos of some at the Universal Studios theme park. I wonder if any of their students bumped into them over there?

As usual I complain about the school "holidays" not feeling like holidays. The combination of limited time, piling homework/projects and nearing deadlines all lessen the positive effects of not going to school by a significant amount. A long time ago my blogging activity might have peaked during this period, but this year I definitely will not see that coming. But at least the government actually plans out holidays for students, unlike other countries where the school terms are more defined by the weather.

Past Entry 10

Friday 22 April 2011

Ok now I finally got back to writing Past Entries. Today's Good Friday, and I happen to have a lot of time on my hands at the moment, so I might as well do this. Since this is the 10th one, I thought of scheduling this on the day this blog turns 3 years old!

Unfortunately this date will be on a Wednesday, so I don't think I'll actually be able to physically post on the day itself. Maybe I could, but the probability isn't very high. Considering that I'll probably have tests around that time, and I'll have ongoing projects too, I may not be in the mood. Sorry, I'm not the type of blogger that feels obliged to post every day or few days just to make the blog really active for fear of losing audience. I didn't create this blog just to become famous on the Internet. This is more like just a channel for me to both express opinions/feelings and (perhaps less importantly) improve writing skills.

I started this out of boredom due to being stuck at home with a fracture. I wasn't suddenly motivated to become an Internet celebrity through blogging. Well I was thinking of following the crowd in terms of having my own blog. So many people whom I know had started blogs way before me, some as early as Primary 5(11 years old)!

If Only...

...homework did itself and not multiply exponentially

...we could all fly without being bound by physics

...we had an actual money tree

...we could clone ourselves and make the clones do our stuff without complaining

...there were an actual way to obtain immortality

...nobody in the world had to face prejudice

Blank

Nothing good to write down here.

My mind is just a blank.

No actual substantial content, I fear,

And nobody but me to thank.
