Good Day Everyone.

My name is Veronica and I would like to make a comeback in the blogosphere.

Some of you might remember me, or at least I hope you do. I started a blog before and then BOOM, I disappeared. Just like that. My once treasured blog, abandoned. I don't know what exactly occurred to push me towards inactivity. I guess, to make the story short, school just swallowed me whole. I avoided to think about my blog and how I just left it to rot.

A few months passed and my blog's platform already got contaminated with all these issues such as comments being deleted and it just got loads of spam. A sign that it was poorly maintained. It was disheartening. I didn't even visit it anymore. Well, because I was very disappointed in myself. Once again, I wasn't responsible enough to make things work. But right now, I'm optimistic about the future of this blog. I'll try my best to maintain this blog for as long as I can. I won't pull a disappearing act anymore, no matter how busy I am with my life. That's a promise and I'm going to keep it. What can I say, I really miss writing about what I think/feel and reading about other people's lives too. It's really fun and keeps my creative juices flowing.

By the way, this blog is entitled as Joy to the World! because it's nearly Christmas time and I'm a really happy person, NOT! It's just a take on my middle name, of which I'm not even a tiny bit proud of and that  my classmates make fun of me for. It's JOY, okay, and I'm speaking to the world, so Joy to the World, get it? I just realized how corny that is and my sense of humor probably wasn't present when I thought of that.

This was my previous home, if you were wondering :)
