I suppose it’s very fitting to start a blog today out of all days.
Today marks the last holiday weekend before the start of my last undergraduate year. Today marks the summer Transfer Deadline Day for the 2013-2014 European football season, which my all-time favourite players moved from my team for the past three years to his home team, AC Milan. And last week, I helped participate in organizing and promoting Ryerson University 2013-2014 frosh week on their various RU Student Life social media accounts, which was significant to me because I had never attended the frosh week for my first year at Ryerson University – way back in the fall of 2007. As my Instagram caption for the photo I published on last week’s first day of frosh, “Beginning the end with the beginning I never began with.”
So all in all, it is really fitting for me to start a blog when I am coming to the end of some journeys. The journey of my academic career, and the journey of following a football player’s career at a certain club… The latter may seem silly, but you’ll soon find out that following football (or soccer, if you’re more inclined to North American terminology for the sport) is a big part of my life. I even have plans to attend three World Cup games in Brazil next year!
I have always managed a personal blog one way or another. Whether that be a personal hosted blog way back in grade eight when I was leaving the Neopets years and started getting interested in HTML and coding, or when I joined LiveJournal to participate in the fan communities located there, or left for Dreamwidth for a more private blog. Either way, I always had a blog of some sort to document my life! It has been a while since I last managed a public journal, however, so it might take a while to get used to things.
Anyway, I hope to use this blog as an outlet to discuss some of my personal life as well as my interests in movies, football and Asian music. I hope there will be some of you who will find my thoughts interesting enough!
