Month: April 2020

Memories have been restored.

Over the past couple of hours I have been working on uploading posts (sorry to those who got an old post email) from the past to this site using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. After looking through them, I feel ashamed 😳 that I have let this site go the way it did. I never intended for it to have massive breaks because I was trying to juggle school and my social life at the time. The blog posts were even short back then unlike now.

I’ve always been good at blogging 📰 but I have just let other things get in the way. While I have been away from the World Wide Web, all I have been doing is making new friendships and starting new jobs in Horticulture 👨‍🌾 . I have also been using this site to make apps but have never completed them.

Anyway this week I accidentally lost my work vehicle keys 🔑 while on the job. They ended up in a bag of green waste but thankfully it was in the first bag I opened up. There were 4 bags. So I felt relieved when I found them otherwise it would cost me a bit to get them replaced!

I’ve been thinking about reuploading the old pages too that this site had but I deleted them from my computer ages ago by mistake. Plus they would be so outdated that some of it wouldn’t even work in a browser you use now. I’m not even sure if anyone creates websites 🎨 with themes anymore. Though if you have any suggestions for new content, can you please leave it here. Even though I haven’t really done web design for ages, I still remember the basics and happy to learn new things.

In terms of the surveys I mentioned in the previous blog, I will leave it until another day when I gain my visitors back.

If you have gotten this far into the post, thanks for reading. If you know me you would know it’s my 27th Birthday 🎂 today and unfortunately due to coronavirus, I can’t see anyone and they can’t see me. It sucks but I remind myself that when all of this is over, I will be able to see everyone again and that’s what matters the most. So I keep looking forward to the future instead of the present. Please just take care of yourselves though this difficult time so you’re still there when it’s all over!

Isolation

Who would think that we would be locked up in our houses in 2020?! It’s sad that we really can’t do anything but in the end it’s for the safety of our health from COVID-19 (coronavirus). So in the meantime I have a lot more time to blog here.

I hope you have had an awesome Easter considering that you couldn’t see all your family and friends physically. Now is the time to make use of that old skype account that you haven’t used for ages or go for a casual walk in the park that you have never been to.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been using Skype with friends wishing MSN messenger was still here. For those who don’t remember MSN messenger was the biggest messaging service of its time with heaps of customisations available. You could change the look of your username, install plugins, play interactive games with friends & family, video chat and talk to computer bots. It was just really popular chat service before MySpace, Skype and then Facebook came. Skype even had interactive games before Microsoft took over! It makes me think, what if your Favourite messaging service atm and why?

I have also found myself completing surveys/tasks that you can receive money and vouchers from. It’s 100% legit because I have been receiving the rewards straight away. The more you do, the more you’ll have for when compulsory isolation is over. Meaning you can still support your local businesses when they reopen without being more out of pocket. I plan on creating a list of surveys comparing them between each other for your convenience in the next couple of days if you like.

I know I have basically neglected this blog but I hope to bring it back to what it was like in it’s glory days. If you’re an old visitor, please let me know what you would like to see back and everyone else is welcomed to give me new suggestions too. I will me monitoring this blog a lot more now so I aim to release a new blog at least every week now.
