Disclaimer! This is not a goodbye because I’m terrible with goodbye’s. So think of these blog posts as a “thank-you-for-everything-that-you’ve-done-for-me-and-I’ll-never-forget-you” kind of thing. I will definitely see you again in the future so don’t you dare think that I’m just going to disappear from the surface of the Earth. If you want to read all the blog posts I’ve made about my “departure,” then please scroll down to “Categories” and pick “Timothy’s Letter to the Church.” This series of blog posts will be personal and only a select few will understand what I’m saying, so, sorry to those who have no clue of what I’m talking about!
Um…I’m not sure if you’ll be O.K. with me putting you on my blog and the internet in general, but what ever! 😀 Since I have a lot of people to talk about, I need to place a limit on how many words I’ll write for each person, so does a max of 800 words per person sound good? Including the “Disclaimer” that will be at the beginning and the introduction of each blog post? No? Well this is my blog so sucks for you 😛
As you can see, I’m trying to apply as much humor I can so that I’ll be able to publicly embarrass you aaaand make sure you don’t forget me. 😀 Don’t worry, I’ll save the last 100 words for a nice paragraph announcing my love for you. Let’s begin with the embarrassing moments shall we?
This will either be a helpful or hope-less blog post. Let’s see what happens because yours is gonna be a bit different
We don’t usually hang out of side of Church, which is really sad 😦 Buuuut I do have this moment listed as pretty awkward. It comes in two parts. Remember we volunteers to make deserts for the good bye party for Co Lily? Well, the part that I remember clearly is us going to the store, then having to wait 20 awkward minutes for Ethan to get money. LOL. So we were shopping for ingredients to bake pies and what not for the party. But we were a couple dollars short, so we sent Ethan to run back to your house to get money. But the strange thing was, he didn’t come back 20 minutes later? So we just stood there awkward near the clerk (the clerk was probably thinking Are they gonna purchase oooor nah?) Finally Ethan came back with the money and purchased it. Then, next awkward moment was when we were baking. We had no idea how long to put the pies inside the oven, so I think we just waited and guessed when to take them out. TBH, they tasted gross, sorry?

Since you are a fellow blogger, I’m gonna give you some tips to help out your blog that I received from my blogging English teacher
- Have a clear point that you want to get to your readers. If you continue to go in circles (unless going in circles is the point of you blog) it will confuse your audience. Know what you want to talk about then express it through your words. Think of it like an essay. You begin with your thesis which contains what you want to talk about. And each essay has a theme. After you’ve established what you want to talk about, you explain it.
- Love what you write about. How can you write about something, but not agree or like what you write about? It reminds me of those essay prompts that instructs you to “Read the article, then choose whether to defend or argue what the author is saying.” You have to feel strongly about something to get the most of it. I love music, but I also like giving tips and shedding light on human nature. I combined both and created this blog.
- My last tip is probably the most important one: stay persistent. From my year of blogging, I learned that the more posts that you have out; the more content you have; brings more people to your website. But to get people, you need to be happy with what you’ve written and try to give quality to each blog post. It may seem like a chore at first, but don’t worry, it’ll get more fun as time goes on.
Now like all the other posts, time to cry about this good bye. Hope Nguyen, thank you for being such a great friend for all these years. You’re creative, clever, and most importantly, understanding. Every time I talk to you, you are always thoughtful and easy to talk to. People can trust you and you try your best to give the best advice you can. When I discovered that we both loved YouTubers, we had like, a mini-spazz-out. We also have similar tastes in design, art, and decoration coordination; which I always loved about you because finally someone understands me when I talk about color schemes. Overall, thank you for everything that I’m sad that you missed my goodbye party, but know you were there spiritually in my heart. I love you!
Song to dedicate to you… umm… how about:
