Blogging - My Reason

Many people said that I'm a very quiet person and I tend to agree. Usually I would reply to them that I'm 'Quiet by Nature'. So people who know me would wonder why am I blurting out aimlessly on the net, why am I blogging when I'm an introvert? The reason is pretty simple:-
自分満足. Self-satisfaction.
Yes. I get a sense of satisfaction by penning my thoughts and daily living down into writing. In fact, I used to keep diaries ever since I turned 12. Got the inspiration from Twin Peaks. Hehe. Well, not exactly Twin Peaks per se, but the book 'The Diary of Laura Palmer'.

After moving into the big city of Petaling Jaya (a city in Selangor), I found that I could not keep my diaries as it contained many deep and dark secrets that I wouldn't want anybody to know about. Hence, I burned every single one of em. But now I'm starting to write again!!! How, ironic. Well, since it's public-accessible, I wouldn't reveal what I wouldn't want to. ;P

But what have inspired me to write again, you might say. Well, 2 things. Corrinne May and Ichigo 100%!
1) Corrinne May
Well, she's a singer-songwriter who inspired me a bit on writing a blogspot. The choice of words she so gracefully pick is sweet to the mind to read and digest. She inspires me more on song writing.
2) Ichigo 100%
This is the backbone of why I started writing again. It's a manga adapted into an anime about the life of a boy who got himself into a complex love situation. Erm, a bit えっち (perverted), in fact it might be too えっち for some people's taste. However, I find that I loved the comedy of it. In the story, there's a character named 東城綾 (Toujou Aya) who writes really great stories, and that's what sparked my passion for writing again (the reason she writes, not her stories).

Silly ain't it, the reason? No matter, I'm one of those weird, silly people who still wonders why I jump out of bed in the morning when I can't place a reason to live!
