More than a year actually!

“One year… I wish I had done more, written more, shared more. I wish I could have been more responsible, more consistent,  more engaging”.

 

Earlier today I was looking  at my clustermap (what an ego! I know) and so I happened to notice that it’s been a year since I set it up, which automatically made me realize it’s been a year since I set up my blog. “Wow!” I thought to myself “What are you going to do about it?”…

So I began to look at some old stuff, particularly my ‘About Page‘, which I wrote when I didn’t even know how to blog yet, and I thought it needed an urgent renewal. But then I thought: “Who reads the ‘About Page‘ anyway?” so I decided to share what I came up with:

How it all started.

When I first started my Advanced Writing Course in the university I was prepared for almost anything, I knew I was about to change the way I wrote and learn so much more about writing in English, I was prepared to shake my foundations and change my perspectives. But little did I know that this blog would become such an essential tool in doing so.

It was a challenging surprise! And as it turns out I have enjoyed writing and sharing in my very own blog – (She says proudly) -. I couldn’t be more grateful with my teacher and my mentor for putting me in the right direction and for providing me with such good tools to become a better writer.

And though it’s been a long road since then and ( I have to admit) I’ve been way too inconsistent, I still have the same desire. I want to be better, and I’ll never stop fighting (even if I have to fight myself).


Visiting The Museum: A Quest.

Wow! It has been quite a long time since I visited a museum, and I must say I really enjoyed this experience.
Although I don’t know much about art I enjoy visiting museums, especially art museums, but I always like to have someone accompany me because it’s interesting to share and compare your ideas, to learn from different points of view. Thanks to all of you!
Visiting The Museum: A Quest.
The quest was simple, go into the museum and observe each piece carefully. Then choose only one to write an art review, not the most interesting, not the most meaningful, not the most unique, simply the one that I would take home to look at everyday.
I saw a lot of very interesting pieces of art that translated into a wide range of emotions, and I was torn apart between two or three pieces, but eventually I chose the one that most caught my attention and had me observing and re-observing it for a long time, and in which I found both a beautiful form and a meaningful content.
