They always say “new year, new me”.
I mean, part of it is true, but you barely see anything drastic until the aftermath. I like to think of a new year as a way to see that there will be newer challenges, a new level in a game to face.
Cheesy, but that’s just how it is.
For me, the new challenge last year was facing a year without formal education.
This year is the year I plan to blog. Granted, my plans to be a little more transparent about my life began last year when I attempted vlogging (which I will re-attempt this year) with an old handycam.
Similarly, both approaches are considered my attempts at writing more, divulge more and becoming more open in general as a person. Part of it is also to build my portfolio as a writer and content creator.
I can proudly say that since I completed my formal education, I have written a lot more than I used to.
In July last year, writing in my journal became a regular thing, something I forced myself to do everyday if I had nothing else to do at the moment, so I filled up about two books. It was invigorating, and I regret not having done so in so long! That was also around the same time I attempted at using a planner, and honestly, it does feel great ticking away all the things you have in your to-do list!
There was a certain anxiety that prevented me from writing a blog, and also prevented me from writing in certain places because I felt like “no, this isn’t the right place for it”, thus I had plenty of blogs scattered about, all for different purposes but I ended up abandoning them.
But ah, there I go, rambling again. This was meant to be an introductory post.
With this post I make official this blog titled itshazdoe! It shares the same url as my twitter and instagram, which makes searching for me so much easier!
