The Ranter’s Revived

Guess who’s back from the dead? Yep, we book-reading ranters can do that too.

 

So I know I haven’t been around for the past 2 centuries or so, and believe me, they truly felt like that and more. I’ve been having troubles connecting with my wifi (all lovers have such issues, yeah?) and to top that off, my electronic devices decided to rebel or something, simultaneously, methodically, all shutting off and refusing to function properly.

 

But we’ve moved past that. I survived (miraculously– thank the Lord for books), and now I’m back!

 

With that said, I’d just like to thank every one of my readers BECAUSE YOU HUMANS ARE PHENOMENAL. And although there is no particular reason for my saying that, one ought to remind another that they’re phenomenal– that’s the least one can do. I guess a part of me thought that my blog would fall apart just a little with my sudden disappearance, but what do you know– I still got tagged on so many tags ( I think– so watch out for that); I still got mentioned round the blogosphere and I’m 5 FOLLOWERS AWAY FROM HITTING 100! Like I know many have moved way ahead of that but can we pause to imagine a little Ranter like yours truly ranting away in front of 100 people? Crazy, yeah?

 

So for that I’m thankful, and for all of you for sticking around; I also welcome my new followers and would like to thank them for stopping by~

 

And since I missed saying it before:

I wish you all a prosperous, happy, successful, eventful and fulfilling 2017. It may not come without its own bundle of pain and ache, but without pain there’s no gain, no? I pray that you always find the light in the darkest of times, the hope in the moments of despair and that you’d always find strength in your own smile and heart– because you need to trust that you’re your own source of greatness.

 

With that said, I’m now off to answer the almost-exploding heap of emails I’ve been getting since I last logged into life.

Stay blessed,

Midnight Ranter (aka Ayaka)

Survivor of War

Dear IGCSE,
We’ve known one another since over 2 years now. And I have, for the longest while, feared you. Feared your mere presence, really; as though it was a haunting shadow lurking behind my every step.
This year, though, I had to face you. For one whole month, it was a ceaseless battle of survival, instinct and intellect. I have fought war against you, and you didn’t spare me a second glance. Whether or not I’m a winner in this feud, I don’t know; not yet at least.
But I do know that I survived.
I do know that I’ve fought.
And now it’s finally summer.
I bid my farewell to you, and hope that not many fall victims to your ploys; for it is quite the challenge to remain alive.
And with that said, goodbye IGCSEs, and hello Summer 2016!
Signed,
A very exhausted teenage student (aka an IGCSE survivor).

Side note: As you can see, my very dear readers, I’ve been gone for a long while (had exams) and now I’m back. And although I don’t even have that many followers, I thank you for not giving up on me :’)  *curtsies*
