Emo Random Thoughts

I've had my blog since 2007. I'm really thankful for having this blog because it's almost like a diary. I go back and read some of my posts from earlier on... it's so trippy to look back at those times. I was just a baby!! I loved chunking up the deuces and looking back I blush over it! I do it every now and then for fun but not religiously like back then.....


I read through the old comments and remember the amazing community of friends I had back then. I really started this blog and YouTube because I had an interest in beauty and didn't have a group of girlfriends with similar interest around me. The internet helped me find a community of friends, first on Specktra and later on Asian Beauty Blog. I loved having friends to talk about girlie things with and to share random bits of my life. I wasn't connecting with some of the people around me and in this day in age, it's not a hard idea that you can meet true friends and people with similar interests thousands of miles away.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever reads my blog anymore. This isn't a cry for attention, it's just a true pondering. I'm different than I was 7 years ago.... I've lived life more (which is why there are long periods of turning into a ghost), experienced life more.... had struggles and triumphs more than before. I'm not as cutesy as I used to be, I have a corporate job that I don't love and I feel uncreative at times. I wanted to let my creative juices flow again and that's why I started blogging and YouTubing again. 

Anyways, I guess I was inspired to write a random emo post since I used to vent about everything when I first started my blog and it's kind of nice to go back and remember what's been going on. So maybe in 7 years I'll look back at this post and remember how my life was at this time.

  1. I still read your blog and watch your YouTube vids! You're one of the first makeup gurus I followed when I first got into makeup. I didn't realize 7 years has already passed. It's awesome to see how much you've changed since then (good changes!). The struggle to grow up is hard. I'm 25 now and I feel like I'm going through a mid-20s crisis lol. Anyway, just wanted to let you know a loyal viewer is still here and I'm looking forward to more stuff you're going to put out! ❤️

    1. Thank you so much, it really means a lot to know I have a few people who have known me from the beginning! Ugh I feel the same way! I'm 26 now and I was just joking around that I'm having a mid-20s crisis! I'm 4 years into my career and I keep wondering what I wanna be when I grow up still hahaha. We can make it through our crisis together :) Thank you for the feedback, it really means a lot!

  3. Stephie!!! I'm so glad we connected way back when and when you decided to pick up your YouTube and blog back up again I was ecstatic! =)

    It's hard to keep up with a blog, believe me I know! But in the end it's an outlet for you and ultimately you decide what and when you want to post. I look forward to whatever you decide to do! <3

    1. I am so appreciative of your encouragement and support! So crazy how far I've come from starting my blog.... and I'm glad that now I'm in a new stage of life that I can still connect with you :) I know it can be scary and difficult to get into accounting, it's one of those fields where you need to get experience in order to succeed. If there's anything you need help with or need any advice, I'm here for you! Congratulations on getting married & starting a family :)
