Back online, happy belated New Year's

Postby Still Searching » Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:25 am

Sorry everyone for not being online lately and not responding to my messages or thread posts.
I have been keeping busy with my offline life as I am currently looking for a job and a new home.
Also, my relationship with my family has been a little chaotic but I'm doing everything I can to stay strong and have been studying Buddhism as much as possible.

Hope you all have had a lovely Christmas & New Year's.

I will try to keep in touch as much as I can.

P.S. Thank you all for your support to my path to enlightenment.
I have learned a lot from this forum.
