The Start of a New Decade

Posted on Thursday, January 13th, 2011 at 12:49 pm.

2011 – doesn’t that sound oddly futuristic?  People felt that once 2001 rolled around that we had hit that weird point in time where we were treading on the future settings of past movies and movies (namely the one that used that year as its main title), but don’t you feel like 2011 also gives a similar connotation?  It seems a little less pretentious too, somehow.

I haven’t really posted anything significant for the past year and a half, and I can see why journals like this eventually dissipate; the immediacy of daily life just takes precedence and there are just other things that time can (and should) be spent on.  The site has been around for a full 4 years now, which isn’t any amazing landmark, but it does make me feel a little older, considering I was finishing up with college when I first started it.  I still plan on keeping it up for some time, and hopefully with some improved content.

Recently I went on a 2 week trip to Japan, to try to get a fuller experience of the country and culture, and I will do my best to get around to writing about it and sharing whatever I recorded in my logs or photos.  Long time readers of the site would remember that my first few posts were of my brief trip 3 day trip to Japan and subsequent trip to Korea in the holiday of 2006; the new material should show some kind of improvement in both scope as well as maturity (one can hope).
