Including this post, I would have written 305 posts on this blog in 2019 for a total of about 71,000 words. Although I didn’t achieve a 100% perfection rate for blogging every day, I’d say that I learned quite a bit about myself during the process.
Writing is my way of making sense of the world. Whether it’s trying to understand an economic theory or figuring out how I feel about something, writing has always been my way of solidifying my connection to this world. On some days, just the act of writing something was therapeutic.
Even though I’m interested in a lot of things, there are a few things that I keep coming back to. After a year of writing to publish, I realised that the three things I think about a lot are: 1) food & drink, 2) media & stories and 3) philosophy (including religion).
I’d love to explore other media beyond writing. One of the things I did in 2019 was limit myself in terms of medium. I wanted to grow my writing so I focused on that medium for online publishing, which means I had limited time to practice photography and illustration — both things that I’d wanted to properly learn this year.
So in 2020, there are three things I will likely do: 1) write more, but privately; 2) for this blog, zoom in on my areas of interest; and 3) emphasise the use of other media besides writing.
If you’ve been reading, thank you! Hope you’ve had an amazing 2019 and that you’ll have an even more magical year ahead. 🤗
