Q&A: Do you prefer outside or inside?

Hi, all!

So, I just downloaded an app that gives a question for you to write in your journal each day. Well, I think it would be fun to start writing more. To be honest, when I stopped blogging for so long, coming back to it was hard. I don't know. Perhaps I just don't know what to write about. This would be a good baby-steps for me. 

First question I came across: Do you prefer outside or inside?

Since I was in my middle school in Thailand, way back when my house doesn't have wifi, I use to read lots of book and just spend my time writing my novel on my laptop (that doesn't have internet). I don't go out much as Thailand was soooo hot and still is. Well, later when I went to America for my high school years, I am still that girl who prefers indoors. 

One of the conversation I remember with Jen and Josh, my American family who took me in during my years there, was "why don't I have a curfew?" I remember one of my friend saying that they have a "before the sun goes down" curfew. But why didn't I have one? Well, Jen replied with "well, you never went out." So, basically, I don't have any curfews because I never went anywhere. I was that girl who when school ends at 4:45, I would be home at 4:50 or no more than 5. I remember that I read a lot of books and spend a lot of time just painting and drawing. One of the reasons was because I had an "internet curfew", in a way. One hour of internet each day and two on the weekends. It helps a lot with making the most of my time with things other than the internet. 

Moving forward to college, I have a lot more freedom. No longer do I have limited internet time or having to be home at a certain hour, I have that right to make a choice. To choose to use all my days on the internet or to come home after midnight. However, I could honestly say that I prefer more of the indoors. For me, I still do enjoy reading books and being in my room or at least staying around the dorm. True that as I got older, I had to get around to other places such as eating out or going to the mall, I still enjoy being in the comfort of my home or at least my dorm room. 

What about you? Do you prefer outside or inside?

Alrighty, I think that's it for today. Hope you enjoy! If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask them in the comments. :),

Behind my eyelids

           Haven't been writing in this blog in a long time. So long. Well, I don't know how to get back into it, but it has to start somewhere, right? Well, I wrote a small piece for a literature class. It was supposed to be a first draft of a travel writing. Since I have been so busy with assignments, this is quite an escape of this fast-paced world. As much as I can feel the hot sun on my neck in this hot weather of Thailand, this work is all fictional and I created it out of my own imagination. goes

I lift up my face, accepting the hot rays of sun, and the fresh breeze that hits me in earnest. Behind my eyelids, I can hear the gentle coos of the ocean pulling in and out. I open my eyes. I see the lacework of palm trees above me, and the corner of my lips rises. Far ahead, I see miles of clear water and as I walk closer to where the wave pulls, I take my shoes off. The feeling of the warm sand reminds me of my childhood when I came here with my family a few years back. Those memories are what makes this place special in my heart. I walk on the wet sand as the cool waves lick at my feet. Spotting some sparkles in the golden shore, I bend down to pick up the varieties of seashells. Pinks, oranges, purples. The feeling of its rough shell prickles against my hand and the feeling of the soft sand between my fingers… I sigh in happiness bliss.,
