I've always been fascinated reading other people's blog that for the longest time i've wondered how it feels like to write one. After years of procrastinating i've finally decided to try it and thus im now a certified virgin blogger with my first post. Like any first timers, i dont really know yet what exactly do i want to do or convey. A million of ideas and thingamajigs are brimming in my skull right now. All those thoughts that have been pent up for like a gazillion years are screaming to be released out.
I remember when i was younger, i used to write in my personal diary. I am especially fond with the ones that has a mini-lock so that i can be lost in my own world writing all my fears, dreams and thoughts without anyone ever intruding that private sanctuary. But to my dismay, my snoopy mom broke the locks and read all the most private and intimate things i wrote only for myself. All my excuses and lies were exposed! I was embarrassed and MORTIFIED beyond belief. She started to berate me with being a rebel of a daughter. Of doing things against her will and yada-yada-yada-yakkity-yak of seemingly endless sermons.
I was fuming mad because she invaded my privacy. I wouldn't even dare touch or read her diary even if she had one! Not because i already know that the contents are gonna be boring, but mainly because i respect other people's personal opinion. Our trust with each other kinda' diminished. So the next best thing i did was to buy a palm pilot and use that as my diary instead. It was a perfect idea that time. Especially with the code you have to input before you can open it means you are really safe guarded.
Although i was happy i kinda missed writing freehand and adding doodles and drawings which i cannot do with palm. But the worst thing happened when my palm broke down, so all of my ideas, thoughts and experiences went to waste as well! Sigh! Because of that i totally stopped writing diaries and i miss doing so. Blogging seems like another perfect vehicle to continue what i had previously started and to let the creative juices flow.
So this is my first blog, and I'm so excited! I'll treat this as my semi-diary. It's definitely an uplifting and great avenue to express and release to the world the many sides of me. I'll definitely keep the ball rolling in the next few posts. Thats all for now. Tata!
