For the past few days, I’ve been hanging around in my old blog and got rather amused at the things that I’ve written. Quite a number of which were bleak but some were rather creative. One certain thing is I was one active writer. I don’t want to use the word diligent. It sounds so nerdy. But yeah, I was writing about almost anything. I wasn’t afraid of what someone would think of what I wrote about. If I wanted to write about it, I would… no matter how mundane the topic is.
I would like to go back to that kind of writing. I would like to tap on what’s left of my creative side. I think I’m sounding dramatic, and making it sound like a very big deal, but I once dreamt of becoming a writer someday. I may not live to become one, but I most certainly can write still.
And so, I decided to give this blog a face lift. I’ve been getting some ideas from some of my favorites and getting pretty excited about this. Wish me luck! 🙂
OK, let me start by giving you the honest reasons on why I started this blog:
1. I miss writing.
As a kid, my first real dream job is to be a writer which later turned into a journalist, and into a newscaster, and sadly ending in being part of the IT world. I’m not particularly good but I was into it like a typical little girl being into barbie dolls and playing house. Writing makes me excited and creative, and most importantly ushers me to be grammatically correct. And so, before I end up being swallowed by the whole texting/jejemon craze, I will make it a point that I write, or in this case, type in an acceptable and jeje-free fashion.
I visited one of my old blogs a few days ago and was able to reconnect with my past self. Some posts were totally hilarious while some made me utter, “Who was this girl? What was she thinking?” and stuff like that. Nonetheless, I felt happy that I got a glimpse of my old self which I think contributed a lot to who I am right now. Also, it’s fun to write about the things that you did and the places that you went to especially if it comes with a kick-ass collage.
Yes, to start a new blog is one of my goals this year. I’d be happy to share in here the complete list as soon as I figure out how to add another tab or section specifically for that purpose. To have this as a 2012 goal may be lame to some but I think it would be a very healthy diversion for me. Don’t worry, my days of being a rant-y early adolescent is over. I will try my best to keep this blog as positive as I can. So if you think of visiting this in the hopes of getting some dirty dish, get out!
So there. That’s my feeble and kind of lengthy way of saying “Hello, world!”. I hope I didn’t take away your precious 5 minutes.
