Hi, it’s me again, forcing myself to go back to blogging. I can’t count on one hand how many times I’ve attempted to return to the blogging life. Most of the times, I can not commit to it because 1) I always lose motivation, 2) I’m busy with life (mostly busy with reading, sleeping, and working), and 3) I don’t know how to properly put things into words anymore. It’s not that I have nothing to blog about, but it’s the process that makes it exhausting. It’s simply because I’ve noticed that it’s not easy to blog nowadays as compared to the year when I started blogging. Everyone is connected to the internet now and I cannot consider it as private as it was before. Nevertheless, I still believe that blogging can be an outlet of everything one feels and everything that one wants to say (though probably now, it comes with more critics than before. That’s why bloggers are more careful nowadays with how they write things).

I promised myself that I will blog once a month as a start. Once I get the hang of it again, I will probably write more often. There is no reason. I just want to write. I read somewhere that if you want to write, you need to start with a word. And you need to put those words together to form a sentence. Then try to group the sentences to form a paragraph. It’s quite a common sensical thing but it’s easier said than done. And here I am, trying to put my own words together. Hoping that someday, there will be less time consumed looking at a blinking cursor and a blank paper and writing a two-paragraphed blog entry won’t be as exhausting as it is right now!
