I am a writer

I am now officially a writer.

And since I've become one, I almost forgot that this blog exists.

Writing for a living has stopped me from blogging.

Lame excuse.

Again, I am now officially a writer, a copywriter at that.

My long wait is over.

This may not be the company I dreamt of, but I know, this is just step towards that shining goal.

Now the question is, how long will it take you to stay?

For now, I am confined by my dream, my aspiration.

But I know, in time, maybe not soon, reality will bite me and shall wake me up.

However, I believe that nobody can take that dream away from you as long as you want to stay sleeping in that dream.

Meaning, as long as you're happy with what you're doing, then, nobody can take that away from you.

Even your mom who's nagging you to look for a job with a better and higher salary.

I am writer.

And I am blissful to become one.

Two-Oh-Oh-Ten Goals

We all heard of New Year Resolutions.

What to do and what not to do on another new year.

I had my fair share of resolutions, and each year, nothing really happens.

I just blurt it out, and along the way, everything changes.

Now, this 2010, I try not to do resolutions.

I have goals.

First, starting off my career as a writer in 2009, I want this to flourish and continue growing this 2010.

Initially, I wanted to work in an above-the-line advertising agency, but opportunities didn't allow me. A door in a below-the-line advertising agency opened, so I grabbed it.

But this year, I am aiming to further develop my writing skills and enter that world I want to be one with.

Second, I want to lose weight, tone those muscles, and live healthy. I'll try to lessen carbo intake, and lessen my smoking.

Lord, help me.

Third, I want to do better with my current job. It does not pay that much, but I know this is a start of something greater ahead.

I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Fourth, I want to do better with my life. It's not that it's all messed up, but I want to aim for something better.


I want to aim for the best.

Cliche as it may seem, but this is what I want to do. I'll straighten things out.

All these this 2010.

Guide me, oh Lord, so I may do all these.
