If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
~ Isaac Newton, February 1675
What is this website?
Welcome to my personal blog, Daryl Sun's Journal! It's an online diary detailing a lady's misadventures in two worlds (real life and online): every week, I write about what I've seen, heard, and done during the past seven days.
What's the difference between This Week and Special Edition posts?
- This Week: the regular update, with all my triumphs and failures
- Special Edition: out-of-schedule update on topics that were not or could not be included in This Week
