Why the long absence
If you’ve noticed, I have been absent from my dear website for quite a long time. To be honest, there were some issues related to psychological abuse that I had to deal with. In-person bullying and some cyber bullying. You have no idea how psychologically jarring it was. I’m still terribly shaken from the experience.
Also, today, I received my PIN from Google Adsense. Thank God, that’s like the shake that I needed to get out of the rut I was in, pick up the pieces, and continue my journey towards the improvement of my life.
Back on track
So, now, I’d like to think that I’m back on track. I will continue writing for this website of mine, with or without a big audience (yet, I hope).
I had a case of “allowing myself to get sidetracked.” Hopefully, that shouldn’t happen again. I was only about able to keep my sanity intact despite the harrowing psychological abuse I was subjected to. It’s a good thing that I have a lot of bills to pay. That somehow helped me push myself to get up every day and show up for work with my trademark smile.
What a coincidence
As if it’s any coincidence, today, a Japanese student of mine told me that he is flying to Taipei soon to make a survey on cyberbullying in the country. That student and I worked on refining the questions in his questionnaires, which are supposed to be handed out to different sectors there, including the police.
The survey aims to check people’s awareness of the issue, the severity of the issue, and the countermeasures taken by the government, the companies, and their schools there. In addition, the survey hopes to get ideas on how cyberbullies are detected.
Let’s hear from you
Now, I want to ask you those same questions. Feel free to give me your candid thoughts on the issue.
