There’s just something about them I like. As much as I love collecting the actual book, I like having the pages filled… with my memories and my writing. And in a few years, I’d like to go back and read about my
life days—what I thought about a certain person, how I felt that day, how my views changed over the years. And maybe I can share it with someone and laugh at it.
I like seeing my writing change (and the different pens I used). I like seeing the pages turn wrinkly from being flipped so much. I like seeing the little doodles and signature I add at the bottom. I read some entries from my fifth grade diary and surprised myself.
Blogging and vlogging—they’re different. I don’t like saving everything on electronics, especially memories. Something is bound to happen one day and everything will be lost. The pictures you uploaded on an online album or the files or something with the hard-drive. I don’t want to depend on electronics.
And also, there are things that shouldn’t be written and kept on the computer, let alone the internet. Journals are more private.
Okay, so there are e-books and actual books. If you’re one of those people who chose actual books over e-books, then you’d probably understand where I’m coming from…….. right? I dunno.
I’m not here to be “tumblr famous.”
I’m not here to ask people to follow me.
I’m not here to impress any of you.
A blog is practically an online journal.
I post what I want, what I like. I’m here to express myself. If you like what I post, then okay, whatever. If you don’t, then leave. If you’re following me for certain posts but don’t like some of them, then keep scrolling. But please, do not ask me to follow you. Seriously, what will you even get out of it?
I follow the blogs I follow because I like what they post and I like seeing them on my dashboard. To put it bluntly, I’m just going to scroll past your post when I see it. And since I’m following over 100 blogs, most of them who posts/reblogs daily, there’s a lot to go through. What’s the point of following a blog I’m not so interested in?
I mean, wouldn’t it be better if you earned your followers? Wouldn’t you feel better knowing these people are following you because they like what you posts and not because you’re making them?
I notice it’s usually the
tumblr noobs from facebook that asks people to “add” or follow their blog. And I’m just like
I like to have a clean and nice writing and it all depends on the pen.
I like writing stories, journal entries, recording quotes, etc. so I buy nice looking notebooks. The problem is that I never write in them because I don’t want to mess it up. I end up having about ten notebooks with nothing written in them and my mom’s like
I’m guilty of wasting paper. Ever since I was young. I’m trying to stop and I’ve gotten better at it. I rip out pages I don’t think looks pretty and rewrite them.
Anyway… back to rewriting my notes.
into getting a job. (And I’m putting the pressure on myself)
There’s a new restaurant opening in the university’s plaza and they’re hiring. Both my roommates are applying.
This quarter I have a nice schedule. I get to stay up and sleep in (since most of my classes are in the afternoon).
Last year, I thought I could do better.
I thought since I’m not so busy this quarter, I might apply for a job in the dining hall. But… what if my schedule isn’t so easy the next quarter and the following quarter? I have two options with the time I have:
1) get a job
2) take that time to review, study, and try to get a higher GPA than last year—no excuses, join clubs, volunteer.
