Early Tuesday morning, a colleague greeted me with a question even before I set my bag down my desk. Don’t get me wrong – I didn’t bother. “Anong English ng napadpad sa pampang?” (What’s the English translation of “napadpad sa pampang?”) And I was like “Erm…Uhm…” Drat! I couldn’t say the exact phrase even when I was certain that the answer was just lying on the tip of my tongue. Not wanting to leave anything unsolved (or in this case unknown), I ran the search engine and came up with “washed ashore”. I immediately offered this to my office mate who had taken it gladly.
After that, she explained the need for it then completely went on narrating her dream the night before and the very intention of including it in her blog. There she went on and on, giving me a vivid picture of the bizarre vision she had. I couldn’t exactly remember what triggered it, but I suddenly found myself persuaded (and she is really convincing!) to create a new blog to have some outlet for my thoughts (no matter how outrageous they may seem to be). So long story short, I found myself typing the site of wordpress.com in the address bar and after a few minutes – voila! I have joined the world of writers who don’t use parchment and have never experienced having ink blots in their writings.
As I am new here, I hope you guys will cut me some slack and forgive my seemingly “speechless” and “nonsense” thoughts written (or I might say “typed”) here in my page. I will share to you guys my most (and least?) memorable experiences as I try to live many lives in one lifetime (an International Relations student (ehem! Graduate already ^^), a Korean culture lover, budget traveller, etc.)
Though the story was apparently not started with my dream, I will try to create one for myself. A dream that could influence and motivate others. And the challenge is to make that dream a REALITY.
So what are you guys still waiting for? Dig into my posts, and who knows, I might be like my office mate who would and could persuade you to write all your bloody thoughts.
