For the past two years, I have been searching for the things that I can do without being paid for.
I tried to become a Korean English teacher, full pledge nurse, a real estate salesperson, become a musician (ok, the last is a JOKE! but seriously, I tried to play the piano and guitar so, I hope it counts.. haha! **GRIN**)
But, nevertheless, I almost tried anything that really interests me. Until I stumble upon blogging and writing. At first, I never thought I can really enjoy writing and reading because when I was a child, I seldom write and never read books for leisure so, this really came to me by surprise. It’s like, “Damn, I should’ve known this much earlier, maybe now, I must have written my book. (LOL! just exaggerating!)
But now, I consider this blog as the thing that keeps me alive. Reading books, writing reviews, taking pictures, writing my editorials are just few of the activities that I love and there is a blissful feeling after I have accomplished one article. I will trade sleeping over writing and reading a book that I am really into.
I am no way a brilliant writer. I dont know a lot of adjective that can describe a certain feeling, I don’t know much highfalutin words to impress my readers or sometimes, I know my grammar sucks! (please bare with me 🙁 ) however, I love the feeling when I am writing and and knowing that my readers can get something from it. If I haven’t entertain them, at at least, they learned something.
I love researching new things and new discoveries as well. It’s like every time I encounter a thing worth blogging, I can’t wait home, research about it and blog about it.
I never knew this before, for if I have known it, I would’ve taken AB English or anything about Literature or about computers, but, I never really saw this coming. Seriously!
However, my passion doesn’t end there.
This is my top secret! I haven’t told anyone about this but, I think, now, I must admit and it may sound crazy to some of you but, I have to say this, I love getting LOST! (literally!) I love going to a new place, get lost and get back on track! It’s like one of my “Eureka” moments when I found a new way home. haha! As long as I have cash, food, camera. I’m on it!
I enjoy seeing new places for the first time and make sure I capture it. It’s priceless. I enjoy roaming around an area I’m not familiar with. Look for good business establishments, restaurants and other landmarks. (Weird right? I know! :p)
Another thing I love is trying on different things like foods. If I can just try each menu in a restaurant without being bloated and becoming fat, I could’ve done that!
I love new discoveries and documenting it makes me enjoy it more. It lets me revive the feeling I had during those times. If I could be given a chance to soar and conquer the world, I will document everything about it here. All my adventures, misfortunes, etc.etc. And this is probably one reason why I love my job. It allows me to do what I love without having any conflict with it.
Maybe, I’m just lucky to know what I love or maybe, I also put much effort and worked hard to really find my passion.
This must have been the quote that inspired me to look harder and the real essence why I should know it, my hook or by crook. It’s from the book, Dear John by Nicholas Sparks,
“Happiness without Passion is temporary because there is nothing that can make it last”.
