Inception, Non-operation, Resurrection

I guess I’m back…

Three years ago, I started setting up this page to chronicle my adventures. I wanted to find a reason to write again and I thought a blog would help me get into the writing vibe. I told my friends I wanted to quit my job and just float around while maintaining a blog. So, I spent the last couple of months of my office life and the first months of traveling thinking of website names, searching for matches of all the names I thought of! And I could not believe how choosing a name for my page proved to be a headache! All the names I wanted were taken! When I finally decided on one, I made sure I created accounts on Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, and of course, Facebook. That’s when Arrivingwhere was born.

My progress was really slow. I was looking for a job online, trying to learn to code my page, while traveling and having fun. There were months I had drafts of what I wanted to post but consolidating photos and learning how to make my page attractive took time. So, needless to say, the stories didn’t get posted. I have to update all those drafts I wrote and rewriting the stories all over again felt like work as I was busy looking for a job I wanted.

Then waves of adventures and misfortunes came to being and Arrivingwhere got washed away on the far end of my thoughts. I didn’t want to share my ups and downs with everyone anymore. I guess I did not want to be vulnerable to tons of scrutiny, people I know would do. I realized how a lot of the people you know are the very first ones to be highly critical and judgmental about your decisions in life. There was even a point when sharing events on any platform felt like a job instead of sharing just because you’re happy to do it. Since then, I shared less and less. I still post sometimes, depends on who I was with.

Fast forward to now, I feel bad that because there were so many things I wanted and needed to do all at once, the one thing I love doing, writing, got set aside. I always had it on the back of my head and boy, today, I am finally in front of my computer writing! Today, I don’t feel like it’s a job to do this. Today, I care less about familiar people that might stumble upon this. But I’ll check with my feelings again tomorrow!

I hope to write more and more starting today. This page had been sleeping for a long time. Hopefully, like a diesel engine, little by little, this baby starts revving up and you are welcome to read!
