At the beginning of each semester, I always promised to set a goal of blogging daily, if not at least occasionally. It actually had never happened!
In truth, it is never too late to start.
Why is blogging such an obligatory matter, you may asked? It is my personal thoughts and experience, which I wish to write them down to express in the most coherent ways and best justified.
But most importantly, there are three reasons that bind the ultimate of blogging.
1. Personal: I tend to have a lot of thoughts and I am always thinking of just every little things. Sometimes, the fear of overthinking will lead to negative thoughts, and I even challenge myself to pause from thinking. Inasmuch as my personal struggle. The adversity of my family’s situation, my confrontation of self-identity, and events that have impacted on my life and shaping of who I am today. I understand that everyone has their struggles, but I believe that each person’s experience is different. My story is unique to me and I should embrace it. For that, I must write. Writing will liberate my thoughts and emotions.
2. The problem here is not just overflowing thoughts, but also the struggle to speak about them. I am known to be a quiet person for those that I am not close to. But worse is I do not express my opinion or ideas even to friends. I am very closed off to myself. I usually do not convey my emotion in conversation, whether with family or friends. This tends to lead to people’s misunderstanding of me. Hence, I wish to fabricate my personal experience through writing and that my readers will understand me better.
3. Professionalism: Perfectionism requires practices. Here, it is not my desire to perfect my writing, but to improve my writing skill. Writing has always been my worst enemy. I always have writer blocks and I tend to run into issues of errors, i.e grammar, structure, and clarity. So my goal is to develop a strong writing skill. And ultimately, blogging will give me the chance to fabricate my story through creative writing. It will be nice to express my personal experience through a nice creative structure and ideas, so that everyone can enjoy reading them and even finding the little stars as guiding lights of soul searching.
"In order to have focus, we need space to focus." It is a little time for myself — personal development, as in addition to school and career focus. Now that I am back on track with my little world , I will blog more often in my spare time.
