...and somehow I missed the anniversary. Serves me right for not plugging in as much as I ought. I thought that I started this here blog in October of 2004, but it turns out it was actually on September 21, 2004. I imported some posts from an older web site so some entries are dated as early as April 2004, but the real beginning, back when it was villageidiotsavant.blogspot.com was in late Septembe
What's happened since that time? I made some cool young friends, I got a girlfriend, I quit my corporate IT sales job, I moved back to Davao, then to Dumaguete, took over the family business (for a while), biked around the Negros countryside, attended my first writers workshop, broke up with my girlfriend, moved back to Davao, enrolled in AB English (and MA English), made more cool young friends, became an uncle, started teaching in Ateneo, shifted (and graduated) to MS in Information Technology, had a bad biking accident, got engaged and married, wrote a book, made some cool old friends, fell into a coma, built a new house, travelled Europe, and became assistant dean.
Whew. Ten years.
