A Brief Note from Me !! =)


Oh my gosh...this feels weird...

It's been 2+ weeks since I've last posted.'s been 2+ weeks since I've even touched blogger. I haven't read any blogs, I haven't commented on any blogs, I haven't read any of my comments, I haven't checked my e-mail to see if I received any comments, and I have definitely not written any new posts.

I haven't checked my own blog for a few reasons...
1) I felt guilty for not posting after saying I was going to post once a week on my February Piece of Me
2) I was afraid of reading any comments from people yelling at me for not posting
3) Actually, to be honest, I was afraid I hadn't received any comments at all.

But today! I decided to be brave and finally look, and low and behold, there were actually some of you who checked up on me. I can't tell you how great of a feeling/relief it was!

Seriously, thanks to all of you who even bother to read my blog & take the time to comment. I never thought I'd reach 5 followers, let alone 20! But I especially especially thank RicAdeMus, Shop N' Chomp, & Stephanie. Seriously some of the nicest people I've ever encountered. Seriously. (I used seriously 3 times in 4.5 sentences. My writing has seriously deteriorated!)

 Anyway...what's the point of this post? Nothing really. 

How do I explain my lack of posting? I want to say I've been busy...and to some extent I have been, but a lot of it is due to lack of motivation/laziness. Blogging is hard! I admire those of you who manage to update on a regular basis! But my problem is...I have nothing to talk about. I have no hobbies or opinions or interests, which is why I took up blogging - to find something I'd be interested in, or to make a hobby out of it. But it's hard when I have nowhere to start..then life becomes a constant cycle of looking out for blogging opportunities, and that gets tiresome real fast. Constantly trying to think of something to say turned into a chore which became something I wanted to avoid which led me to where I am now. 


I don't know really. I don't know if I want to keep blogging. I truly enjoy reading everyone's blogs, and I think that that's going to be where my priority is at now.

This was such a random post..oh gosh.

BUT SINCE I HAVEN'T BLOGGED FOR SO LONG, I'll give you guys a little update on what's happened!

- Chinese New Year consisted of lots of eating. LOTS of eating. Eating in restaurants, eating in people's homes, large feasts at home, etc etc. I went to my mom's temple to do the whole incense burning thing. It's supposed to be good luck, and I actually believe it! Last year I didn't go to burn the incence, and I swear I had pretty bad luck. I blame my laptop getting stolen at school on the day of my Midterm to that! So after my laptop was stolen, I immediately went to the temple to burn the incence. Chinese New Year also consisted of lion dances and drum performances.

- Valentine's Day was a flop. It's never good. EVER. My boyfriend forgot it last year which made me quite angry, and this year we got into a pretty huge argument that wasn't resolved until late that night. We don't do big holidays very well.

- I went to Bikram Yoga. Bikram Yoga is basically yoga in a SUPER HOT room (40C/105F). I bought an unlimited one week pass and only went twice. YUP. It was horrible! Excruciating! One of the worst experiences of my life! First of all it stinks of horrible BO as soon as you walk in, then everyone drops their sweat on you, and then you get all dizzy and nauseous because it's so hot, then you can't hold your balance because you're so dizzy, and that just defeats the whole purpose of yoga! They say it's good to feel dizzy and nauseous because that means all your toxins are being sweated out, but I personally did not like the feeling and much prefer normal yoga instead. I was pretty ashamed though because there was a 10 year old girl doing much better than I was. I ended up lying on the floor for half the class the second time around because every time I tried to get up, my body simply collapsed back down. Not. Fun.

- OLYMPICS!! I didn't think I would be interested in the Olympics in Vancouver...but national pride soon kicked in when Canada's medal count started to grow. It was so intense watching everyone, from hockey to skating to curling. I was kind of disappointed in the opening ceremonies though. The biggest moment of the Olympics for me though, as I'm sure it is for many others, was the Gold Medal hockey game between Canada and the US. I'm not a hockey-watcher, but HOLY SMOKES that was one of the most intense games I've ever seen in my life! I nearly had a heart attack when the US scored at 20-some seconds left. SO GOOD. & I loved the mascots too! Quatchi is love. I found myself hoarding Olympic memorabilia but by the time I became interested, it was already hard to find certain items. ANYWAY...I have to say I really enjoyed the Olympics, much more than I thought I would, and I can honestly say that I feel a lot prouder to be Canadian than before. OH BY THE WAY, for those of you who watched the closing ceremonies...we are totally not all about beavers and moose and the RCMP and saying sorry and saying eh...I don't know why we were reinforcing the misconception people have of Canadians. Oh well.
I feel really bad for the Luger who died right before the Olympics though. It's so heartbreaking! He was so so close..

So...yeah..that was my last two+ weeks. Really random post, I know, but this might be the last one for a while...

So I hope everyone is well, and I'll try to keep up with your blogs as best I can!

Until next time =)


  1. Omg, you're still alive! *hugs* ;) You know, we all suffer from writer's block. Heck, I take mini blogcations here and there just to get away from it all sometimes. how you managed to put everything that's gone on into one post! Yay to CNY and the Olympics and boo to V-Day and Bikram Yoga!

    Keep us posted!! :)

  2. I had that problem with bloggy ideas once I got more followers than I expected. I think I felt like I needed to try harder--or maybe I worried about making a good impression on you. LOL! After a while it will pass and ideas will seem to create themselves.

    Thumbs up to the food, but boo to Valentine's Day. I can't believe BF forgot last year. He must have avoided tv, radio and the internet for a month beforehand. I mean, it's everywhere. Geez! But maybe he was preoccupied or worried about something at the time.

    105F? Wow! Your yoga class apparently smelled like the wrestling room at my school, but it wasn't THAT hot in there.

    Misconceptions? I thought the closing ceremonies were "aboot" helping to eliminate misconceptions. LOL! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    It's great to hear from you and catch up. Seriously!!! {plz don't block me, I'm just in a silly mood tonight! =)}

  3. aw you too? i dont know whats in the bloggerworld nowadays, but a couple of blogs/bloggers that im following are also taking a hiatus. :( i hope you get a lot of inspiration during your break and return soon!

    your bikram yoga experience was funny to read!

    will be missing you! xoxo

  4. Don't take blogging as a chore, k. Blog when you have something to share, if not, don't force yourself. Most good blogs remain in my Google Reader and when they update, I see it, read and comment. Blog readers usually follow many blogs, so if one doesn't update, there's plenty of others. Just take it easy, k. ;) Update once a month, it's also fine, nobody will flame you, hehe.

    Have a lovely day applePIE! :)

  5. Thanks for the b-day wishes!

    Perhaps I'll entertain everyone by singing in the rain, just singing in the rain. What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again... =)

  6. Woooohoo! You are back! Glad to have you back… and I’m sorry for not noticing you were away… cus I was kind of in and out of blogger as well. Haha! Weren’t the Olympics AMAZINGGGG??? (besides the technical difficulties at the opening, and the death of the luger) I’m hoping the Paralympics will be just as great – I get to watch the opening live tomorrow! P.S – in regards to your comment, cutting out the fatty foods is the hardest part for me… even harder than waking up at 6AM and running. Haha! ;P

  7. i recently went for 2+ weeks without updating my personal blog. I had ideas but just no time. I think I'm gonna take the easy way out on that one (post pics). :) But I'm glad you did update again. Sorry you felt like blogging was a chore. I know what you mean. Sometimes I only have enough energy to just read blogs/comment or just post. I really have no idea how people can manage it all day long. I notice there are some people who comment and read everything while maintaining a daily blog. it's just omg to me. But SERIOUSLY I'm glad to have met you too! :P
    and.... I want to see what Olympic memorabilia you got your hands on. I got some panda pins from the summer one (so cute!).

    p.s. i love the way you guys say sorry! I first heard it when I watched anne of green gables. love that series!

  8. Hi!!! The birthday was fun--too much food, but fun. I think I gained the weight your trainer wanted you to add. Thankfully I usually turn up the workouts in April anyway. Oh, and I won $350 during a casino visit with friends.

    Thank you for asking, I always look forward to your comments! =)

    Now that I'm thinking about the subject, did you make the trainer happy? I've also been wanting to ask how the 3 essays turned out?

  9. its freakin crazy what people would pay to get Olympic gear!!! i'm going crazy but thats only cus i got stuff for 50-70% off! hahaha! i'm kicking myself though b/c before Christmas, i wanted to buy the Canada hoodies for $50...but i listened to a friend of mine who said i have too many hoodies. Now, they're all gone and bf wanted to get me one to surprise me but they were selling online for like $200. CCRRRRRRRRRRAZY!!!! i'll stick with my olympic bag, canada shirt, mittens, 3 quatchis, luggage tags, and more. hahaha! okay maybe i have enough olympic gear.

  10. My parents trained me to say "ma'am" and "sir", but I managed to break the "ma'am" habit when I realized it offended so many. It tries to slip out every once in a while.

    If your BF teases you again, tell him you should have known better than to get involved with an immature younger man--or tease him that he's being a brat! If you don't mind me asking, when is your birthday? =)

    I agree with you, some of the things the eldery do are really amusing, especially when they're not ahead of you in line.

  11. Hahaha! Actually, when Glee first came out, I was avoiding all the hype.. i didn't even want to watch it but one day, I dropped by my bros house and my sister-in-law was watching it (this is after the season was already over).... to cut the long story short, we got hooked and watched the entire first season in one night. hahaha! I actually thought it was going to be lame.. singing, high school, cheerleaders, blah blah... but i think the characters just draw you in... and i enjoy the story line too. hehe ;P give it a shot! P.S - what's your real name? i've only ever known you as ApplePie! haha!

  12. HAHAHAHA! omgosh! that is EPIC! At first too i was like... huh?? crown??? then it clicked... CLOWN! hahaha! that's so awesome! i see that a lot in asia... they write it out exactly how they would say it! ;P
