Site Closing

19 Nov

Hi readers,

I apologize we didn’t get a chance to connect here for very long and frequently (Though I know most of you are probably friends with me through my other blog and social networks!), but I assure you that we will in a brand new way. Due to the inactivity on this blog—and to coincide with the transformation of my entertainment blog Karen On—A Professional Dreamer is closing its doors. That means, don’t hope for new content to show up (Even though you probably weren’t for the past several months). This blog will be linked to in my portfolio as a means of archiving.

I wrote a letter in Karen On last Friday explaining my absence from the blogosphere, and how I will make the new version of the mothership what A Professional Dreamer was supposed to be. In a way, I am simply consolidating this blog with my entertainment blog. Please read my post if you have not yet, as it explains everything you need to know about this transition.

Again, I am very sorry that I was not able to be here much, but I hope that the relaunch of Karen On is the new beginning for us all. Thank you for reading and for your feedback on my posts in A Professional Dreamer. I hope you are able to join me in the next chapter of my story.

Happy Mother’s Day!

13 May

Back when my mom had big hair and I hardly had any.

Dear Mom,
Thank you for all your hard work and your incredible fighting spirit in keeping me and your other two kids secure and sane, and for supporting me 100 percent in the pursuit of my craziest dreams. I know that it hasn’t been easy for you and that I don’t show my appreciation for you enough, but today I want you to know that I love you every day and am thankful for you. I’m proud to say that I get my strength from you (Plus the inflated eight-year obsession for American Idol that started with you and the tendency to scream at my TV while watching sports). Like mother, like daughter. I love you!

Big love and special thanks to the other matriarchs in my family, my maternal and paternal grandmothers. To every mother out there and to all my readers’ mothers, wishing you all a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Goodbye April. You were a joy.

It’s insane how fast this year has already gone by. Just last month, I wrapped up my internship. Now I’m approaching the one-year mark of my college graduation. Whoa!

This month is going to sweep me off my feet: The Avengers is FINALLY hitting theaters, more Giants games with my favorite people, Mother’s Day, another round of NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences, and hopefully lots and lots of sunshine!

(Oh yeah, I’m looking forward to fixing up this blog and taking more pictures. And writing more focused/in-depth posts than just these little things. It’ll happen, I promise!)

What are you looking forward in May?
