Hi, I’m Kim and I am nothing less than enamoured with words.
I was more of a doodle person when I was a kid, but I ended up taking Journalism that made me discover that I like to write.
I write because I want to make sense of the things that happen in my life. There is a lot that I tend to dislike and even regret. But if I can look back into them through my entries, I’d realize I’m silly because nothing is wrong with those experiences at all. I guess you can say that going over this diary is a way to see myself as a third person.
I write for those moments that I need a warm pat on the back or a pep talk. Typing my thoughts and reading them to myself reminds me why I’m doing what I am doing now.
I write to practise writing for a hobby so that I won’t forget how to create for myself even if I’m busy crafting content for work. The charm in leisure writing is I am purely myself when I spill my thoughts onto the keyboard. I could say exactly what I mean and there is no need to rush because writing for yourself is a safe expanse where nothing is subject to anyone else’s taste or timeline — it’s a self-centric universe that orbits around me.
I prefer writing more than speaking because penning down your thoughts stamps out anxieties about body language or silly pronunciation. All that matters in this space is the intimacy of my words to my sentiments and perspective.
I chose my blog title because I see life as a tender unfolding; for better or for worse.
*In case you are wondering, orange is not my favourite color. This just happens to be the default colour palette that I have no way of changing for free. (Yep, not a .org user atm.) 🙂
Oh. I also do a bit of slapdash design, which you can see in the image thumbnails of the blog entries.
