I have left the habit of writing behind for a while, mainly because I am so caught up with so many things at once that I’d spend my free time being idle on bed. (Life of a bum, yes.)
BUT HELLO I AM BACK… for a while!
In the last 6 months I have more time to read a book whenever I can squeeze in some time for, to interact listen and pay more attention to people and their stories, to keep up with my fitness goals this year, and ultimately, to put more thoughts into perspective.
There is so much of thoughts to put into words, but I suppose this hiatus is not a bad thing; human-to-human interaction still triumphs, and there is so much more to life than to be stuck behind a screen. 🙂
Also, it may also be the case that I am moving on from resorting to writing as therapy. Someone pointed out that he wanted to stop writing to stop looking at his life like a narrative. And then it hit me: my life for the past year mainly consists of a narration. A narration about how I am dealing with emotions, struggles, and the could-have-beens that I have stopped looking at my life as… life. Every now and then I have to tell myself to live in the moment and to stop allowing the past to interfere.
Currently, I am in the midst of doing last minute preparations for exams and preparing for my first 10km race (both falls on the same weekend/week, BACK TO BACK. OMG ASDFGHJKL WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF SMH) while making plans and applications for my next big step post-exams / to seek a great perhaps.
I don’t think that I will stop writing just yet – perhaps after a few more posts, then I will take a break and hopefully come back with something different.
After all, we are a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.
Live, and let live.
