A belated New Year’s Post

Greetings to the New Year

Somewhere in my neighborhood

It’s been such a long time since I had posted anything on my blog. Some of you know I mostly post on Twitter, Facebook and articles for Examiner.com. The truth is 2010 is a year I would like to forget. I’m sure many of you out there feel the same way. I had lost more than I had bargained for, personally. The worst thing for me to watch my friends and family go through hardship and heartaches. That was too much for me. It seems depression has gotten on an epidemic level last year. Too many tears had been shed on a daily basis, it had to stop. It got to the point where I couldn’t even function, normally. I even ended up living like a shut-in for a while.

I had no idea what would happen when I started the Asian Culture Goes Pop endeavor. It sure beats depression, since it does bring me out of the dark from time to time. I never thought that I would make new friends online as well as in real life. What boggles me is the fact some of you out there actually give a damn in what I have to say.

And for that, I’d like to say, THANK YOU.

And because some of you actually give a damn about my endeavors, I get out of bed, grab my digital camera, learned how to edit videos on YouTube, interviewing amazing folks like Pat Kinevane and Boom Boom Satellites. I step outside my door, go to events, experience what Asian Pop Culture has to offer. Going to parties, concerts and events are not bad either.

The most amazing thing was I got to meet some of the folks who I follow, as well as being followed. It gets crazier when I realize some of you are mutual friends of other people I know. Six degrees of separation is a curious thing folks.

I can finally close the book on 2010. I hope many of you out there can do the same.

The shit stops now.
