Moving to Grammar Killer from my previous blog, Cosmic Glitch, wasn’t an easy thing for me. I have already wasted more than a dozen of blog domains, each bearing its own significance and meaning to me, and it pains me to know that another
awesome blog of mine had to die. However, I found the switch inevitable because I have been receiving a lot of Facebook messages from people who didn’t have to know, pestering me about some of the stuff I had published on Cosmic Glitch.
I was very careful at first. Although my previous blogs were all personal, I tried not to expose myself completely. I wrote only about those things safe enough for me to share. But as the days went by, my loneliness also worsened that I found it necessary to unload some emotional baggage I have been carrying by writing some of the things I have long been keeping to myself. Some were pleased that I was becoming more honest; some were quite surprised that the guy they’ve known before has already changed into a “monster,” as one of my exes called me.
I realized that it’s true however cliche it may be: I cannot please everybody. Well, I don’t have to and I’m not even trying. I could have just stayed where I was and just ignore the people who just won’t let me live. But I decided to just set the boundary, though it’s not the only reason why I transferred to a new blog. The shift is not just for me to hide my blog from people I don’t trust (a.k.a people who know me personally) but also for me to start afresh. This is my disease: starting all over again. The idea of permanence doesn’t appeal much to me.
Honestly, I have been dying to move to this blog before, but I was skeptical since I wasn’t sure if “Grammar Killer” is something I came up with myself, or I just read it somewhere. Yeah, I am like that sometimes. Sign of ageing, perhaps. In fact, I had to ask K first to be sure that it’s, ok, my own idea. After a few days and several blog posts, I am slowly getting used to my new blog. It’s thyme to move on. Cosmic Glitch, together with all the other blogs I have loved before, is dead. I am now Grammar Killer.
Who am I gonna be next?
