Things moving quickly

I haven’t been updating my blog lately, and in addition to moving to a new website name, I guess the inactivity isn’t great for helping everyone find me again. I am really sorry about that. I have to be better in my updates, and especially with my reading this year. I joined some reading challenges, and I still intend to keep them, though I haven’t updated about my progress in the last couple of months. I’m going to try to […]

New Site!

New Site!

You’ve probably noticed I’ve moved my site from HazelLeeVaughn.com to HazellieWong.com. Yes, yes, I know, what’s with all the changes? It’s so terribly inconvenient, but it had to be done, and here I am, trying to explain my reasons why.

Feeling like the Seven of Cups

Feeling like the Seven of Cups

I’ve been having a sort of crisis lately. Last year, I made a lot of non-book-related goals, this year I was going to do the same, but while I ended up posting up a lot of my book goals, I didn’t really state what I wanted to achieve with the other aspects of my life. Now the thing is, I have too many interests – which I am sometimes proud of,  because that means I’m open-minded and inquisitive (or so […]

Books and stuff in the mail!

Books and stuff in the mail!

I love books and I love getting stuff in the mail. And it’s even better when it’s a surprise. Well, this month was full of surprises! First, I got these in the mail from Rob, my bestest BFF ever (whom I originally met through BookCrossing, so he’s a book lover like me):

Slow Reading

Slow Reading

In the last three years, I’d been reading about 200 books a year. In the years before that, I’d read more than a 100 books each year. I distinctly remember one year where my New Year’s resolution was actually to read less; I set a limit of 50 books that year, I ended up reading 53 (I also cheated by rereading some of the same books). Suffice to say that I’m a pretty fast reader. Not the fastest, maybe, but […]

Finding My Path

Finding My Path

It’s been a really long time since I last posted. I keep meaning to, and then I keep putting it off because then I felt I had so much to catch up on and wanted more time to explain everything that’s happened. The longer I put off posting, the more I didn’t know what to say, and it’s finally come to a point that I feel there’s no way I can pick up where I left off, so I won’t […]

Change is good – Why I decided to change my name.

Change is good – Why I decided to change my name.

  Last month and the one before were very exciting for me. There were so many things happening, so many new opportunities, so many changes, so much backtracking and redirecting because I wasn’t sure which road or roads to take. I learned a lot of new things, read some really interesting books, met new people, even started teaching and sharing my own knowledge… Well, a lot has happened, obviously, and the dust hasn’t exactly settled yet. Some of these things are […]

A piece of my heart flew away with Cal and AB

A piece of my heart flew away with Cal and AB

We let Cal and AB go on Monday. We haven’t seen them since, although we keep the window open for them, and we go outside frequently to try to get a glimpse of them. So far no luck. I spent the last three days feeling sorry for myself. I even ugly cried. I know they were never really mine and I was just taking care of them til they could take care of themselves, but I couldn’t help getting attached. […]

Perfect Moment Monday: Little Myna Birds Everywhere

Perfect Moment Monday: Little Myna Birds Everywhere

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between. On the last Monday of each month we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join.   This month, something extraordinary happened in my life. But it wasn’t just one perfect moment, it was a whole bunch of little perfect moments spread over the last few weeks. Some of […]
