Constant blabber & listing

Heya! I came to a realization that my blogposts – prior to the last two – have always lacked in personal touch. Recently, I’ve been reading and glossing over my old posts – and they honestly seem too formulaic and humdrum. Although this blog was intended to act as a travel journal for myself – surviving and making sense of life is a form of travel too…as corny as that sounds but I consider it to be true (that came out of nowhere huh?). Therefore, I am allowing myself to be relatively more personal in this blog as I believe that it enables to show one’s own values and particularity. We are all individuals with our own set of particularities after all – so why not embrace it? Though this approach may be a form of excuse where I am giving the opportunity to blabber on and on *trails off*. SO – although this blog might only receive a pint-sized audience, I am truthfully D E S P E R A T E to have a form of “everyday creativity” in my normal sometimes-fun (not really) everyday life. As Paul Willis would argue; symbolic creativity can be found in our everyday lives especially among the youths. Look at me trying to make use of what I learned in uni for my blog, who woulda funk it?

Anyways, as a first step to get up-close and personal; I thought I’d share some random things about myself in this post. *I already feel a little high-strung typing that sentence* Thing is right, I wouldn’t consider myself as a person who overshares a lot with someone, not with my family and general friends. There are few people/friends scattered here and there who I trust whole-heartedly; like 3-5? haha. Well anyways, enough blabber about blabbering now..let’s get into the other thing I was going to blabber on instead. Below is a list I found on the internet, which I am using as a guide (because I loveee lists). As Youtubers like call it “GET TO KNOW ME TAG” hehe why do I find that amusing.
