Thank You, 1000!

Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!


To my faithful Barbarians, I thank thee for your generosity…

I cannot find the words to express how much this means to me. Thank you…

To be honest, I never expected something like this. When I started, I wanted to make sense of life. I wanted to try things that I deprived myself back then. I wanted to try something new…

But over the course of things, I am rewarded with something more. I am rewarded with a constellation of stars that shine at their brightest. I have been rewarded the gift of you…

Speaking of stars, here are some of the stars that are worth mentioning:

And those stars that hit too close to home, Jiorgio, Anna Vill, Jason Von, James & Isaiah.

About myself and what I have been doing lately. Well, right now I got home from a wonderful weekend with Pancake. We watched Endgame together, and I still cannot get over with what they did to Thor. Nonetheless, it is a good way to close the chapter. I enjoyed it amidst the spoilers roaming around the internet (spoilers do very little for me).

I am also waiting for some books to arrive, and its arrival is getting quite late. But still, I make it a habit not to complain. Since the books came halfway around the world, such delay is to be expected.

Back to school season is getting near so I will be busy in fixing my daughter’s upcoming school year.

I hope I could still maintain a working schedule with my writing. As for the upcoming writings. There are the remaining chapters of The Art of War, book and outfit of the month for May, and of course TMI!

It was such joy to have you on this journey. I hope I could still be with you for the second wave of Barbarians that will join us. I am looking forward to the next 1k…

Again, Thank you for everything!

      1. You make me feel guilty, though. 😊

        I just came back a couple weeks ago after a year and a half hiatus and removed well over half of my followers! 😳

        I like to keep traffic low. It feels more intimate that way, more personal to me.

  5. Incredible job Mr.A! It is amazing to see your blog grow like a Chinese bamboo tree: developing an unseen foundation that sustains such growth. You shared such lovely sentiments. I’m flattered that you’ve included me in the constellation of stars. ❤

    Were not attained by sudden flight,
    But they, while their companions slept,
    Toiled ever upward through the night.”

      2. its interesting to note the different school starts around the globe, yes you would be busy as your daughter moves up a year, she is growing up too fast isn’t it, soon she’ll be a teenager and you’ll wonder how did that happen! youngest boy just started college last month and that has been an alteration in our schedules too. but we are going away for the weekend tomorrow for some R&R!

  7. Thank you for the follow, but no thank you! I can find nothing on your blog that remotely signal an interest for tourism, travels, nature, nor photography and conclude that this is more trying to market your own blog?
    Which you may not do via mine as I have years ago removed my communty grid – especially for such reasons!
    That said, you may freely enjoy my pictures whenever you like, however’ I won’t be sending you any alerts like the other genuine followers receive.
