April Fool’s! I’m posting about February! The fool is me.
It’s a leap year, so we got an extra day out of the shortest month of the year. It’s amusing how I get to write this down and have something to look back to. This way, I can still reminisce about a day that happens only once every four years.
It’s been a month since I went to my first ever SEVENTEEN concert! I’ve been trying to make sense of it all, but the whole experience still feels lowkey unreal–even if I have a gallery of pictures and the muscle pain to prove that I was there.
So here I am, trying to cement the experience into my memories by writing them down.
We’re almost done with February 2020, so here’s a highlight reel for January 2020! Love that for me.
But first, my usual greeting.
It’s been a while.
Their name has a nice rhythm when said out loud, a group of sounds that rolls pleasantly off the tongue as you pronounce each syllable. 青春革命. Youth Revolution, when translated to a more familiar language.
How does one write again?
Words. Words are a good start.
Hey there, old friend. It’s been quite a while.
And hello! I have not updated at all since my last post, which is why you’ll be getting a lot of backlog posts, as well as why you’re reading a July summary on the tail end of September. I promise I’ll be catching up on posting soon! I’ve been cooking up content for this blog, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.
So, what was in the grid during July 2017?

Since Harry Potter is the reason I ever learned how to use the internet in the first place (I was eleven, no Hogwarts letter in sight, and starved for content, okay), it seemed like a fitting time to resurrect my nth attempt at a blog on Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling’s birthday.
Also, by some stroke of luck, I won a blog domain for free. I have fickle luck with lotteries, so, yay? I have yet to figure how to use it… but hey, if the universe shows you all the signs, it would be foolish not to follow, right? My friends are all encouraging me to go back to writing on an online space again, and I think this space would be more easy on the eyes than the essay writing I tend on doing on my IG captions.
When I was in a funk about a year and a half ago, I conceptualized how this whole thing would go. I decided to call this blog [in the grid], because I was bored and thought it sounded close to my name, so why not? This blog is going to be the intersection of my interests and the internet, and posting these thoughts online would put them in the grid of the world wide web. Yes, I committed a grammar error so I could gleefully point you towards the pun I made and to make my point.
Let’s see how this goes, then?
So, hello. Ingrid here. Blogging. Yay!
