    I realised I have been wasting my time on social media apps like Facebook and Instagram. It seems like catching up with friends by looking at what they posted on social media.

    I realised that I have not been working hard at improving myself in terms of technical knowledge. I still haven’t work towards a technical certification this year. :shocked: I have placed an order on Amazon for my CISSP book and hopefully, I will actually study for it and take the exam by this year. Gambatte, Sakura!

    I realised that I have not been working hard to improve my violin techniques and not practising it daily when I should be. Well, at least once every 2 days, maybe? In case I injured my finger again.

    I realised I have not been blogging about my overseas trip which I aimed to do so previously. Time to start reviewing my photos and review the places I went too in Korea and China!

    I realised I have not been posting the photos I took with my camera for a really long time. Time to start looking at them and editing them to make them look Instagram ready and post them on Lihotography.

    I have been wasting too much time and not using them to the fullest. It’s time to change…

    I just realised that my blog is opened for more than 11 years now. The “violinstar.net” domain name is more than 11 years old now. Like wow! Next year, it will be a decade!

    When I started this blog with this name, I didn’t expect to see it last for close to a decade. I didn’t expect it to follow me since the start of university days (bachelor degree) to my first job, then to my grad school (master degree) and now my third job.

    Let’s see how long I will still use this domain name. I actually still like the name so maybe another decade more to go?

    How’s everyone? I’m on a hiatus again. Oops. I was busy with work and preparing for my 4th trip to South Korea. Hehe. Now I am in Korea and having my vacation.

    I should get back to blogging regularly. I have been so lazy on social media and hasn’t update my Instagram accounts for so long. So many overdue photos to be processed and posted on Instagram. Hopefully the lazy bug will be gone by the end of this year…

    I am here in Korea for Autumn season and wow, the leaves are really nice! I shall follow Ming Lian’s step to collect the autumn leaves as well!

    “Now that almost ten years have passed since then, I’m quite grateful to Sakura for reminding me of how and why I started blogging. Sakura was one of the blogger friends I met then; though we haven’t really met personally plus the fact that I don’t even know her real name, I’m thankful to have met her through blogging. She actually started a year longer than I did but she still kept her blog updated up until now. Such perseverance indeed. Procrastination is definitely no tin her dictionary!”

    Hehe, see what Gryselle wrote about me here. That’s not something I expected to see when I nominated people for Liebster Award. :smile: But she reminded me of how Liebster Award are commonly used to differentiate the blogosphere cliques. Yes, I was from that generation of bloggers and have been blogging for 16 years. It’s nice to see some of my blogger friends still around after so long too. It’s also amazing how long I have been using this domain name (close to 10 years!) as well. :happy: I guess many more years to come for this domain name? Haha.

    Seems like Jetpack plugin is finally fixed since I can blog on my mobile phone now. Well, they finally figured out what went wrong… after I gave up communicating with them months ago.

    Well, what does that mean? It means that I will be blogging often again. Haha. Life has been really hectic and I don’t have much time to sit in front of a laptop and start blogging. 

    It’s a public holiday for me today so I don’t have to work today. Sadly, I have to go back to school for my group project meeting for my data mining module and perhaps do some work for my individual security project. I really should start writing my project report and maybe apply some leave to rush it later. Oh well… This semester is less hectic than last semester but it is still hectic for me. How I wish I can finish my degree as soon as possible… I am not sure if I can get used to not studying after my degree too. Hmm… Guess I will have to see how things go.
