Almost 9 years. Here what I learned as I went along.

On December it will be 9 years since I wrote my first blog post here. Nine years, 400+ entries, and being away from most of last 5 years made me realised that blogging is about commitment. I've written post about everything, from journal-y entries, my graduate and post graduate studies, love life, and other thing. Since the beginning, I learned to write a blog post that was a good fit for my style - I always struggle to my rhythm as a writer. I've learned, sometimes the hard way, to listen to my head, not my heart. I've learned what I won't share about, ever.

Plenty of bloggers have gone public, they opened their opportunity window to build community. I used to be a part of them, but then I tried to remember that I started this one to be the "black box" of my life. This blog gives me an open arena to engage in a discussion with myself. I found it therapeutic to write even if it had no recipient (although I kinda always wanted someone to stumble across it and read it hehe..). This blog is kind of like that -- a place for me to lay my thoughts without actually directing it at one person.

After long consideration, I purchased a domain for this blog. Regular visitors who types will be directed to Yes, you are here; in my place, my home; where you can find random acts of stupidity, stories about the many things, and other things that I have let go of what I cannot change and try to live in the present day of my life. 

♥, Me.

Ah iyaaa.. sekarang sudah hampir 10 tahun. Makin lama makin susah nulis karena kesibukan kerja dan hidupnya mulai monoton, tapi selalu seneng ketika nulis dan ketika suatu hari napak tilas ngebaca postingan-postingan lama :)
