Guess I need to do this stuff again.
Just so I have content to show, I decided to write a short blurb about this blog, and myself as well. I am torn whether to import 10 years worth of blogging content here or just really start anew. Said content is cringe-worthy, but sentimentality can be arguably said to be one of my good (!) points.
Roughly for the past four years I repeatedly tried to start blogging again, only to be swamped by that thing we call real life. I started blogging when I was about to end my high school life, but the blogger life didn’t take off until on the second semester of my college freshman year. Life has this twisted sense of humor of tormenting young people around that age range, and I was no exception. It provided enough angsty material for my blog though.
Thinking about it now, my entire four-year stay in college can be said to be full of angst and teenage nonsense. Shoot me.
In this time and age though, with the prevalence of social media catering to the current generation’s short attention span through microblogging services and post updates, I’m starting to think that keeping a blog like this is passé. Despite that, there is certain beauty in vomiting your thoughts for the world to see the way that blogs do it.
Years ago I was one of those bloggers who joined the pilot testing of SM’s WiFi. Part of the reason is for the food, part of it is for the raffle (they’re giving away laptops man). I was approached back then by some reporter from Net 25 asking me what my blog was all about. I don’t remember what I said but I believe I didn’t made any sense (I was probably speaking gibberish at that time). It is embarrassing that only now that I can articulate what I wanted to say, which remains true to this day.
This is probably true for all bloggers, but I might as well explicitly state it. I maintain this blog primarily for my own self-satisfaction. This is my avenue of self-expression. I am an introvert, for me my inner world is as exciting as the world outside. Though you don’t share that opinion, I have this desire to share my world to this world. It would not make any sense probably, but this blog wasn’t about making sense anyway (on your part at least). This is my blog, so I guess it’s only fitting that everything here will center around me. This is my narrative. It intersects with other people’s narratives, yes. But it is my narrative and mine alone. And you get to see life as I construct it through my own narrative lens.
This might have been longer than I intended it to be. Can’t help it, probably because of the rain outside. Anyway, I’m stopping for now. Goodnight.
