It's been a few busy months, and my writer's mind has been a bit lazy. Lacking inspiration, I think? Probably partly because one of my favourite inspirations, my crush-friend, has now started to really become a friend. He is now half a day behind me, at another end of the globe. And I am happy with this distance, it makes us able to move forward. I imagine our friendship to go a long way ahead. :)
And speaking of friendships, a fond friend of mine just texted me yesterday. He was going to have a math exam and got too bored with his revision, he started to count the number of days we knew each other. Coincidentally, it was the 1000th day since we first talked! Gee, how many thousand days does one have in a lifetime? Some have more, some have less. Up to now, I lived some six thousand over days. But what have I done with my days, all those days that another being did not have a chance to live?
How about you? What did you do your with your past 1000 days? And what do you have in store for the next 1000 days? Honestly, I don't have a direct answer at my fingertips myself, but I will try to plan something sometime soon. Will you do that too, and then share it with me? Please?
Hmm. I survived two and a half semesters in my pre-u, with just another two months to go before the finals, and then my first year in degree. Am very much enjoying all the classes I have, I really have chosen a field I enjoy: TESL. Though this semester, somewhere in the middle of class, we were exposed to what might be in store for us as future teachers. Our pay will not be very high, and the inflation rates, especially those in my country, will be very high. I fear for not having enough money, and I fear that will make me hate my job. If that happens, will you be reading my blog and help me bring more readers so I can earn from ads? I hope I don't have to do that, I like my blog the way it is now, clean and ad-free. Anyways, for now, I still love what I'm doing, and I do not plan on quitting.
These few busy months have made me want to write more. Could this be because stress and work always makes me feel rebellious, so I'd like to spend time doing something 'not so important', which is to write? I chuckle when I know it is true and untrue at the same time. Writing is so important to me.
Just the other day, a friend of mine shared this (link
) on my Facebook. He saw a picture post about storytelling tips, and he thought of me. How blessed it is to be the first person to pop into his mind when he came across those storytelling tips? It makes me feel so much like an amazing storyteller, even though I'm not one yet. It's such an encouragement to me, especially since I haven't had the time or energy to write for quite a while now.
And looking back at my last post, one of my favourite bloggers commented to saying "... looking forward to reading you more." And that comment made my day, Raajii. Here's a hug for you if you're reading this. Thank you. :)
Okay, now I better get back to my schoolwork. Will make it an effort to update more often, (even if it might mean shorter posts).
Alive and Kicking,
