4 years ago, I made a blog because of my interest in writing. Through that platform, I want to improve my writing skills. That blog was intended for posting stories-fictions and so-called poems that I wrote. Around one or two years later, I also made this blog to share my thoughts and experiences. As I expected, being consistent to a new habit, especially when it is not an obligatory matter, is not easy. I ended up only wrote a few posts. Because of the unfortunate event that recently struck almost all part of the world including my country, I have been staying home for almost a week. I actually love being home. But, turns out the boredom hit me in few days since I only have some works left. I thought of what should I do for the time being to kill this boredom and suddenly remember of this blog. In fact, I already planned some contents for my Instagram for expanding my additional skills-or hobbies lol because I do not need to write too much words there. And then I thought, since I have more free time, why don’t I post on my blog too and write more? I can not let this url wasted! This might be a good start for me too. I account into 4 main focus. Read, Listen, Watch, and Made.
I am sure that I (almost) always borrowed a new book as I returned the other book
Just like most kids, it was started from picture books?-Japanese comic/manga to be exact. At that time I also read few full-text children books, but I started to have interest in middle school. My middle school’s library is my source of books, and I almost never took my library card. It has been in my thought since a long time ago that writing what I thought about the books that I read is the easiest way to polish up my writing and critical skills. I left some reviews on Goodreads but I still think reviewing is so hard. I am not picky to try something but I am so picky to left comment on something. Does it sounds weird?
I always love reading since I was little
My interest in music also started in middle school. Of course I also listened to music a lot before. But started from that time, I feel conscious and enjoy more about the music itself. Just like books, I also listen to company website wide range of music genres. This makes me have similar taste with most of my friends. But as the time goes by, my taste become more specific. I tend to listen to particular type of songs for most of the time. But, of course I still can enjoy songs out of that range, it is all depends on the mood! I mostly listened to Korean, my country’s-Indonesian, Western, and Japanese. But, one day I tried to listen to songs from several South East Asian countries. Guess what? I enjoy Thai songs a lot! especially the rap and RB one. They have very nice beat and I do not mind the language. On the contrary, I found it interesting. Long story short made this section because I discover a lot of good songs that a lot of people might not know. I want to share it because they definitely deserve more recognition. Other than songs, I also listen to podcast. I started because of studying for IELTS on 2018, to improve my listening skills. But now, I enjoy it more and more. It is a perfect solution when my eyes are tired but I want to gain some new information. I might rarely post about podcast since now I mostly listen to one podcast. But, I include it here in case I discover something interesting.
