Since when I began to measure time in decades?
My university year started in 2003, 10 years from now. And the first article of this blog dates back to 2008, when I was studying in London. Gee. Time flies. So cliche so cruelly true.
I thought of all the timing of many things. Such as the year I installed MSN messenger in the family PC so that I could talk to my first love. That was 2003. 6 months later I was in the university dorm and have my first PC installed many more software to connect to the world. I bought myself the first laptop at the fourth year, paid by the government (with the fellowship of a shitty dissertation).
It probably was because of the breakup stress and the anxiety caused by heavy workload of MA assignments that I started to murmur on my blog. And now it's been 5 years, half of a decade, and I started another two, one to work on my novel writing out of a longterm depression, the other to keep track on the numerous films I've watched before. Good to have things written down, in public or not.
I used to be rather particular about wording on the internet. I used to hate smoking. How things have changed.
