G’day mate! (me trying to say in the Australian way). *uhuk 😌😌
Yesterday I was gibbering about ex-boyfriends. Today I’m about to tell something that might a bit handy on why you should start to write too. So, here we go, some of the causes why I like to write on the blog:
1. Playing with the HTML Code
When I was in 9th grade, I got computer subject. One of the lessons was about how to make a website. My teacher taught us how to make a static and dynamic website. Unfortunately, I forget what’s the difference and I do not know whether WordPress is included in static or dynamic. Yet, I do remember vividly that once I had been taught how to make an HTML page from a blank A4 paper size page. It was so cool! He also taught us how to add some pictures, words, and music there. It is such an unfortunate that I forgot how to do those things.
After making the HTML page, he taught us how to make a blog. We used Blog spot at that time. He gave us some tricks about editing Blogspot theme, use the HTML, etc. I was amazed by the HTML things.
So, when I was in high school, I started to write on a blog, but I did not write much. I was busy with my own drama, my boyfriend, as I told you in the previous post, haha.
Then, I began to actively write on my Blogspot and my Tumblr page when I was in college. I also like Tumblr because I can edit the HTML code too. However, I moved to WordPress because I would like to focus on my writing than playing with the HTML code. It is very easy using WordPress because there are a bunch of free theme template that we can use without editing the HTML, but it was also the minus of this WordPress. We can’t edit the HTML unless using the premium one.
(Actually, I wanted to take Information Technology as my bachelor degree but my parents did not give them their blessing)
2. Share My Feelings
In my early 20s, I was still trying to find out who I am. I was very unstable. I had a lot of friends but I don’t think I have friends who really care about me. Or, if I do, I think they are friends who I can go fun with, but I can’t share them about my feelings, especially the sad one. So, I write on the blog to share things that I actually want to talk about.
And, as you might have read on the About Me page, that I’m a textovert, and often I feel more convenient to share feelings by writing not speaking. Besides, based on research that I read somewhere, writing is the best way to express our self.
3. There are so many thoughts in my mind why don’t share them
Yap. Why don’t share them? Even I sometimes I do realize that it might not be that so important, I just like to write about it. For example, when I wrote about nail polish (?) I know, it’s … #$^&^&%&(^%$%^&$&(%&^ 😝😝😝
4. Giving some useful information
I got a scholarship from government, LPDP (Lembaga Pengelola Dana Pendidikan/Indonesia Endowment Fund of Education) and now I’m studying at Monash University. It is a blessing. And I do realize that many people in Indonesia really want to get the scholarship and study overseas too. So, give the information about those two as much as I know is my previlege. 🙂
*setidaknya blogku sedikit berfaedah lah 😝
5. I tend to forget easily
Yeah, seriously! Sometimes I forget the details, where I’m going, with whom, what is the story. Meanwhile, those memories are valuable. So, blogging is one of my ways keeping those memories.
6. I like to make poems and short stories
I begin to making poem when I was in elementary school. I even had a special book that consist of my poems.
Anyway, sometimes I also read poems in front of dad’s students in a poem night, something like that, because dad is a Indonesian language lecturer that deals with Indonesian literature, obviously. Dad used to attend to the theater at his uni. He said that his students were really happy about my performance.
But, now I never perform anymore, and I lost that poem book! 😦
I still make poem sometimes, especially when I fell in love or broken heart 😌. So, if I fell in love with you, watch out, I might make a poem about you. (haha).
Oke, that’s a wrap! See you on my next post. Ciao ~
