What is this blog about?

I really, truthfully, definitely, have no idea.

This has just become a space where I pour out what I have in my head,

It can be gaming, travelling, reading, exercising , the frequent brain farts here, there. The lessons I learnt.

The stories I heard

It isĀ  just money spent on a digital, journal notebook. Which isnt so bad, a subscription on WordPress cost as much or maybe more or less, a moleskin notebook every writer rave about.

My goal on writing a blog is because it could be a place where I can-

  • share my thoughts,
  • upkeep my language skills as I live in my hometown where English is not the main language and it would be a waste of years and years of studying the language,
  • a diary of places I travelled, the games I played, the books I read,
  • a log on how I tackled health,
  • a collection of lessons in life and where it came from,
  • memories preserved,
  • a legacy for my future generation (look grandpa did this when he was 20!)
  • a chronicle on how I lived.

But even more so, I believe that stories – serves as a lesson, an escape and a connection.

A lesson on how to be. An escape from familiarity. A connection between another.

“What to do Tomorrow…”

Graduating from University, instantly thrusts you into the huge, wide world. And now, I am at the age where most people would feel unsure of what to do or where I am going. At least, that is what I am feeling now.

Grind through frustrations for wealth?

Learn to enjoy what you have to do?

Seek what you enjoy and be satisfied?

I really have no idea what I want and yet, unsatisfied with what I need to do.

So, I decided to take a gap year after a 3 year job where I feel that I am working and yet, not. Everyday just passed as another day. Like a factory machine, an endless cycle of action filled with feeling of mundanity – to the point that you have loss sense of dates and time.

“Wait, what day is it? I can’t tell…I have been doing this everyday. Lets just call everyday ‘Monday’.”

The reason for that gap year was that I wanted to take time, and discover -what, how, where and when-.

“What” is my aspirations

“How” to dispose of my childish dispositions

“Where” do I really want to be

“When” to -grow up- and accept realities

It is already the 6th month of my gap year. And I still have no idea.

But, I will still look forward, to the day where I will know the answers and, the excitement Teddy (Robin Williams’ Theodore Roosevelt) has for tomorrow.

Larry: I have no idea what to do tomorrow…

Teddy: How exciting!
