Day 20. A photo of something you enjoy doing:
I remember in my final interview for a big company, back during the days I was "lost" and was willing to be employed, the big boss asked me why I deserve to get the job. I told them it's because "I love writing." He then said "You love writing? I write everyday, and I hate it!"
Hearing this from someone who's living my dream (and a veteran, at that!) sunk all the positive, idealistic fresh grad soul that I had. How could someone hate something that he is doing, and something I so dream to become?? I realized that maybe some people just work for a living. When I turn out to be a writer, I know I am working to live.
I love writing, till now, no matter how cheese crap and emo the turn out of my yester-year works had become (now that I look back on them hehe). It has become a natural outlet at the present, and some time soon, they are good records of what and how I had been before.
I still keep an "off-line diary"--the medium that started it all, for me. I might not regularly write in it compared to my younger years, but it has been a good SECRETary of deeper things which can't be confided in my beloved Blogspot. But writing here in Anagon's Blog is also a cool journey, of meeting fellow online writers making their difference, no matter how small, in this difficult world. :)
"Which is why I am writing this book. To think. To understand. It just happens to be the way I'm made. I have to write things down to feel I fully comprehend them."
