Normally, when asked about what I like doing I would probably write down the same hobbies I had 7 years ago but recently I sat down and asked myself do I really like them? At a point I stopped living my life the way I wanted to because I wasn’t sure of anything. I had become so fickle and indecisive and I was unhappy. I watched The Great Gatsby and I was so interested in the way Nick Caraway would experience everything within and analyze it without. I needed to learn how to do that for the sake of my sanity and then I read a book from the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn where Christy’s uncle said writing down what is in your mind is a good way to collect and analyze your thoughts. It was exactly what I was searching for; I had found a way to be within and without.
I enjoy writing, it started off stressful at first but it became better. The thing is I try as much as possible to avoid writing about myself directly so I tried to write about things I knew little about and they were huge failures, then I read The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell where they said “the key to being a successful writer – write about what you know”. In probably every story I write, there is a piece of me in there waiting to be unraveled. I am a mystery to myself and I don’t mind. I don’t want to be cliche or mainstream and say “I am on a journey to self discovery” or any of those sob story things. I don’t know what I am on, maybe a high paying expedition or something. All in all I won’t stop writing until I am sure I am happy and I don’t have to rely on anyone to ascertain that.
Enough of my not-so-sob-story. No matter how hard edged or cold I try to be, I have to accept the fact that I am in love with love and love stories; A hopeless romantic. I love music and art, I am so obsessed with movie scores. At the moment, I have a lot of time to myself so I’m on this private Grey’s Anatomy marathon and oh my God Grey’s Anatomy has the best movie scores of any series I’ve watched. I want to meet the person that does the scores and hug them and at the same time slap them for being so good. I tear up during each episode, that’s so unfair. I’m not a huge fan of long blog posts, I usually keep my articles short and direct but if anything that threatens to be longer than necessary comes up I shall turn it into a series or something of the sort.
