Things I appreciate - Part II

One of the things I really appreciate in my life - and I've been appreciating since 2008 when I started this blog is blogs or blogging.

I'm pretty sure that most of you reading this will find this applicable to you, too. I love the whole blogging concept for it connects you and me with other like-minded and even different-minded people all over the world.

I love the feeling when a blog I follow has a new post. I enjoy going through the bookmarks folder I have for my favorite bloggers. It's a pure joy that I can't possibly describe in a few words. For me, the love of blogging, and what it means to me and my fellow bloggers, is why I’ve been in the game so long. It’s how I’ve met many of my current friends. The finest of them, I dare say.

I don't care about how old blogging has became and how less people are paying attention to it by the day. It's one of the things I will try to keep doing for years and years to come. I know one day I will look back and say "huh, I'm glad I kept writing" :)

On this note, I'm thrilled to announce that I now have my own domain for this blog: YAY!

Things I Appreciate - Part I

Hi! I came up with this blog series idea in a class today where I showed my classmates the weird things I walk around campus with.

In this blog series (that I hope I would stick to), I will list some of the many little things I believe I should appreciate - or keep appreciating. Some of my life's simple pleasures that I often overlook. The everyday ounces of happiness that are right under my own nose.

The first thing I could think of is *drum rolls*: Lipton tea bags!

[My tea kit during a road trip last summer]

I simply love this tea and prefer it over any other kind of tea - sorry green tea enthusiasts!
The fact of the matter is, tea and I have had some wonderful experiences together and continue to do so. It's not like my life is so dependent on it (Gosh! It suddenly feels like I'm talking about a spouse!). For my defense (not that I have to), I could totally go days without having a sip of tea. But it's just a happy thing that soothes my soul (and my throat, ehm). Oh, Lipton, you're totally my cup of tea! 

Until the next post!
