Sounds Like Bubblegum.

Seven years passed since I created my blog. Feels like it was only yesterday when I sat down in my old office to write that first post. I didn't know where I was heading. I remember when people discovered I have a blog, two months after. Good old funny days. On my 2nd anniversary I posted this and on my 3rd anniversary I posted this. Don't know why I stopped this 'ritual'. I decided to write a list of 100 things today; 50 of which I love, and the other 50 of things I miss. The things I will post are not the obvious stuff everybody knows I love. Things vary from people, places, ideas, etc. The things I miss do not include people I know who passed away, because those are missed day and night.

In no specific order:
