I tried and tried. I’ve finally had the new domain working, but I’ve ‘lost’ all my posts – all I have now is the raw .sql file I saved as my last “save-the-blog” effort.
Keep what you love, trash what you don’t. I have loved this line from Levi’s Unbuttoned Asia-Pacific campaign 2009, and looks like I just have to use it once again.
There are some posts that I definitely want to keep, so I shall be copying those posts from the SQL file… and those only I shall copy.
Somehow this situation is not unlike this moment in my life now. (Like Jenny Blake, I like to be inspired by, and learn from, metaphors.)
Having just graduated last month from my first degree and finally moved from Guildford to London, it seems like this is a new page of my life. I happily welcome change, as I have changed a lot – for the better – as a person ever since studying abroad four years ago. I want to continue to evolve, which is for sure.
I noticed, however, this time there is one thing that I am unconsciously holding tight, refusing it to change – my relationship with Tyas. I am deeply in love with this man but we can’t be together because he is going back to his home country to work. Similarly, I want to focus a lot more on building my career, starting in England.
While I am actively writing my new pages of blog/life, I too carry what I love the most from the “old” pages of blog/life. Keeping the old and new a balance – it is all a learning process… and I look forward to a future which, fingers crossed, can only become better.
