Tination To TinaBytes: A Merger Was In Order
A couple of friends/colleagues helped me remember the times when I was less boring with terrible, terrible grammar. They also reminded me that I have a long-forgotten blog site called Tination, which was formerly the infamous, “Road Less Traveled” blog. I remember creating Tination as a way to preserve the blog that I deleted, Road Less Traveled. I totally forgot it even existed until Benny gave me a couple of links to it, including this particular post that really put me on a really queer mood. Yeah, made me chuckle but it sorta made me feel sorry for the things that I lost, like fun friends.
I’ve been posting way too many beauty products and unintentionally made this space a beauty blog. Mixing things up here, won’t be posting any beauty finds (though that Bifesta makeup remover is DA BOMB) for a while and will focus on other things.
As you know, 2010 was probably one of the most horrific year of my life. This was the year I lost my job, had problems at home, got fooled into a relationship with a completely psychotic deadbeat (probably the grossest one of all) and generally came across a myriad of shit. My old posts took be back to those dark days. Seeing how I chronicled everything with bitter, angst-ridden, sinister posts full of self-loathing, damn, I haven’t wrote anything that passionate (or personal) for years. I’ve turned into this boring, preppy, makeup-obsessed dipshit in a boring apartment leading a boring life. It’s crazy how much I don’t look forward to things anymore.
Seeing my old blog posts, I can’t believe this person used to be me. We are completely different now and I’m not quite sure if growing up is a good thing. Meh, I don’t like the Peter Pan complex concept either but you know, this shit made me feel old. Or old-er.
Not sure if anyone noticed but this is a fairly new blog with posts only existing from 2011 to 2013. I’ve been blogging way before but I just didn’t include the older posts with the new ones. But now when I think about it, I can’t let three years of immature ramblings go to waste, now can I? So I did what was right, I finally integrated the 2007-2010 posts I had stowed away at Tination into this space. I had most of the posts filed under “Just Sharing” because the old categories I had with my original blog are just lame and they no longer fit my personality or this blog.
I did, however, left a few categories alone because they are just a gem of a find. Check out it:
Of course, most of the photos from my old blog are gone now as they were hosted by now-inactive photo sites or some other sources that are already gone. But the good stuff are still there so yeah, these gems now found a permanent home here and I’m happy the puzzle that is my old and new blog sites is complete. May it never break again.
