So much for this domain and webhosting, which I’m paying for, if I’m not going to use it! Now that I have internet at the place where I’m staying, no prying eyes or annoying officemates can distracting me from indulging in this guilty pleasure.
Some years ago (2003 to be exact), I got caught up in the blogging craze. I wrote about anything mostly about school, my todo list, anything new I discovered.
My personal reason for doing this was to improve my English writing skills. Think that is good enough reason? Hah! Well maybe because I wanted to be cool and my other Computer Science classmates in college were doing it as well so why not do it too. We all kept tabs with each other’s blogs and wrote comments, only to talk about it face to face the next day at school. Haha. Back then, I was also interested in learning PHP and tinkering with free webapps from sourceforge.net and needed somewhere public to dump them all in. I saw myself as an eccentric geek who wanted to suck in all the information the computing world can offer.
I had loads of free time in between sleepless nights devoted to perfecting school projects. I had a laptop that I was always lugging behind my back that it seemed to be a part of me. Like a hunchback. I was connected to the internet 24/7 at home and at school. I had a pool of academic people, all who were better than me, who kept me inspired to learn more.
That was then.
So now what? Hmm… at least I got the internet hooked up. That’s a good start.
