Ever since I came back home, there has always been time for reminiscing. Tropical weather does that to you a lot. It’s like you never run out of thoughts to think and imaginations to imagine.
The point of this blog post is for me to be able to write more and regularly. I mean, if I say I love writing, I have to mean it, right? And there has to be a venue where I’m doing what I love, right? Otherwise, it’s just an awkward thing you claim to the person next to you. Case in point:
Me: I’m a writer.
Person next to me: Oh, cool! What do you write?
Me: *silence amidst the sound of crickets*
I used to be down at elaineaquino @ WP.com. Then I’ve moved to Ellie for the Road (not existent anymore) until I finally settled for Isla Notes. But trust me, the story behind my previous blogs is long and dreary and just not fun to tell generally. I recommend against going in depth.
…is filled with good intentions. 😉
Isla is a word which, in Filipino, means island. I live in one of the islands of the Philippines. I used to work for two years in sandier pastures abroad and am happier beyond words that I decided to come home.
I’ll be in the Philippines for some time and will be documenting my thoughts as I go, everyday for a year, if I dare say. 🙂
