type and write

The truth is, as much as I'm loving this new chapter of my life, I also miss how my life used to be.

I especially miss all the time I had to blog-hop and discover interesting blogs and songs. It's like finding hidden treasures.

I was at work today and I was typing on the computer when someone mentioned to me, "Did you take typing class before?"

No. Typing is MY talent. Haha.

That's the second time this month somebody has noticed about my ability to type really fast.
Actually, I've never realized how speedy I type until these two people pointed it out to me.

Anyway, I explained that I used to spend a lot of my time on the Internet. I wanted to add, "In fact, I used to be an avid writer."

Write.
I miss writing. I miss expressing myself. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, fiction and non-fiction.
In school, I made excellent compositions, I was named 'Best' in both languages. It wasn't a talent, of course, I had good teachers, I followed their guidance and I'm still practicing them. I had teachers photocopying my materials, teachers asking to keep my Exercise Books...

At home, privacy was scarce. We lived in a small house and I had siblings and my parents who kept rummaging through my stuff. In those days, there was no Internet, and the only way to write discretely is by writing poems.

Yes, I miss writing. During my further studies, I always wondered if I was really in the correct stream. Writing is what I did best, but we (my family, the society and I) decided the other would give me better prospect for the future.

Besides, I used to feel that writing was just a hobby.
Like blogging. This is just one of my favourite pastimes.

And I shall write whenever I have the time and something to tell.
