THE DAY BEFORE NEW YEAR

As the new year comes, everyone is excited making their New Year’s resolution or setting up their goals. And for some people, even planning their activities for the whole year.

Some people act on it to achieve it, but most of the people, I know, don’t do it at all.

For 30 years of my life, I am one of those people who don’t make action to achieve my goals or resolution. But this year, I will make a difference… because this 2017, I will do it all. I just hope God will guide me, always.

I will just make my goals very simple so I will not have a hard time doing it:

  • To lose weight – I am currently 71 kg. My goal is around 50 kg and maintain it
  • To have a job that can promise a stable and fruitful long-term career for me
  • To finish putting all my photos in my photo album
  • Print out and hard bound all my finished stories

Wish me luck!

Inspiration struck!

You may all know that I’m having a crisis in my life right now. But I’m trying so hard to look for an inspiration or a brighter side of my dark world.

And now I can happily say that I finally found my inspiration through an article. The article is about the most evil women in history. It’s very inspiring right? For me, it really is because I’m writing a new story about a stripper who accidentally gave birth to triplets. The mother isn’t the lead character of my story, but she will be the main reason why the triplets grew up to be who they are in the future.

I don’t have a clear outline of the story yet. But reading this kind of article will surely help me in developing my characters’ personality. *Cross finger

Another blogging achievement: 2 years of blogging

2nd year anniversaryIt’s my second anniversary as a blogger. Yay! I admit, I never thought that I could pull this up for this long.

Blogging wasn’t on my list of things that I wanted to have. For me a blog is like having a relationship, it requires a lot of attention and maintenance just to make the relationship work smoothly.

And 2 years after, I still think that way. I feel guilty whenever I haven’t find the time to post anything, like for a month or more. Or worst, I didn’t open my account at all.

So to lessen my guilt, I opened my blog at work and pinned it on my Internet browser. This way I can visit it, read some from the freshly pressed, and hopefully can write something when inspiration hits me.

Anyhow, congratulations to me! I hope soon I can write a story again. So all my visitors will have something to look forward to when they visit my blog.

Cheers!

Remember an Inspiring Ocean, The full story behind the blog’s name

My blog started in 2013. I wrote a lot of stories, opinions, and musings in life. But I realized that for 2 long years, I never wrote any posts that explains the name of this blog. Why I chose Remember an Inspiring Ocean? What’s its meaning?… And so on.

That was why I decided to share it with all of you. The full story behind my blog’s name.

I’m starting this by confessing that I am very lazy when it comes to writing. I love to write stories, but I’m too lazy to write all of it down on a paper or type it in the computer. At first, I thought its fine because no one actually knows that I’m into writing short stories. Or even if I do write it down, no one will ever like it.

But everything changed when I became a professional writer in an SEO company.  I need a place where I can practice/enhance my writing skill. And a blog is just the perfect solution. That was when I decided to start this blog. It was just a bonus that I were able to showcase my hidden passion in creating short stories as well.

But it took me weeks before I get this blog up and running because I didn’t know what to name it. I want the name to be “catchy”, describes who I am, and reflects the purpose of this blog. It was really difficult just thinking about it.

Good thing I remember my best friend’s letter. She gave it to me before we graduated highschool. I knew she wrote a phrase that she said best describe my personality. And that phrase is ‘Remember an Inspiring Ocean’. Aside for the obvious reason that it came from the first three letter of my name, I don’t know how this phrase describes my personality.

But looking back at my vacation in Boracay, I were able to come up with a conclusion. When we first look into the ocean, we only see a plain color blue. But once we swim and look down, we will see that there are lots of beautiful things to see down there. And maybe that’s how my bestfriend sees me, at first look I look plain. But when she started to know me more, she found out that there were lots of interesting things about me.

And that was how I decided to name my blog Remember an Inspiring Ocean. How about you? How did you come up with the name of your blog?
