Happy 9th!

The Chinese count the day you’re born as your first year and not as day zero. The reason has to do with your time being developed into a human baby inside the mother. Of course, that’s only about 9 months, but it’s something like that.

So this blog has aged 9 years since yesterday. I didn’t post it up yesterday, since I was doing work all day and being restless at the same time. It’s hard getting into work mode when I have so much on my mind and so little time. Regardless, it has been 9 years since I started this blog.

Nine years ago, was 2006. Though it may seem as though I started this blog to rant and vent my emotions about Cindy, the actual reason was that I saw the blog of Cindy’s fling at the time and thought that it’s cool that he had his own blog site. Though the circumstances surrounding the start-up of my blog lead me to vent and rant about Cindy, my situation with her was just a stepping stone to keeping my diary alive. You see, I kept a diary since my high school days, circa mid 1990’s and continued it through to the early 2000’s. During my relationship with Cindy, we kept a shared blog together, but that didn’t work out, since she wasn’t genuinely interested in that. That shared blog failed and got forgotten until now. When my relationship with Cindy ended for a final time, leading to seeing her fling’s blog had lead me to start this one. I have to confess that I am quite proud and happy that I created the name “Leemanism”. I think it’s pretty clever and fits with my site quite well.

Anyhow, 2006 was the year I went out and did stuff. It was my most healthy year too. I cycled almost every day, went hiking almost every weekend, met with new people every two weeks and had a overflowing handful of flings and flirts. It was a great year, followed by an even better year when I finally received a nice work contract with some fabulous money, went to Hong Kong, paid for various expenses for myself, my parents, my aunt and two cousins.

Of course, I made mistakes from then to now and earlier, I was looking at a former client’s website and thought, “That’s seven years of missed income.” I also thought about other things, but I’ll leave those thoughts for another time.

I celebrated the 9th anniversary of my blog by treating myself to half an episode of “Gaki No Tsukai 2015”. It took me a bit to get back into the comedy, as I haven’t seen an episode for quite a long time. Also, I had a really restless work day but I did manage to get about seven hours of work done. So I’m happy about that.

Anyway, that’s that. Happy 9th, Leemanism.

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
