Several reasons were taken into consideration before venturing into this new so-called hobby of mine. First and foremost, I hate the idea of writing my thoughts since I tend to regret what I write especially if I find it unsatisfactory. Second, I needed to finish reading some of the books that I bought but then again only finished two. Lastly, I wanted to finish my 'Riviera' cross-stitch since it has been put away for more than a year.
|still 10% of my work. :)|
I only write every time I have an inspiration or get emotional on some things. And usually I write poems. In school, when there are suggested readings and written reports assigned several months before the deadline, I get too lazy and find it hard to lift my pen to write. And as usual, I cram the day before the deadline and pass my work without finding satisfaction in doing it. This time, I want to change...for the better. I will be writing my thesis soon or decide to write some articles that interests me. And I believe this is a good training ground to hone my skills. Being a a graduate of History does not only confine me to teaching but also there are other opportunities related to my field of interests. And I have learned that a true historian does not only teach but write.
After all, this is my blog, and whatever opinions and comments you have, they are always welcome. In this world, whatever you do there would always be people who would agree and disagree with you. Que sera sera. This is a new chapter in my life and I hope this is going to be a fruitful one...
