I remember when I was still in high school, I would write my own short novels, we don’t even have a desktop computer yet, I was using typewriter in writing my novels, but it didn’t stop me from writing more than 10 stories. My only regret is I didn’t get to keep them.
My Journalism teacher in high school even inspired me in pursuing my writing skills. He published two or three of my short stories in the school newspaper. And he helped me to write a love story that was published in the “Love Story” comics.
These instances triggered my interest to take Mass Communication for my course, but unfortunately things didn’t turn out as planned… But my passion for writing remained.
Now that blogging is the “in” thing in the internet world, I thought of putting up my own blog site, why not?
As I conquer more real life trials, as I meet more people, I’ve come to realize that hey what have I been doing for the past 30 years? Why didn’t I pursue my passion in writing? So as a birthday gift for myself, I am allowing myself to do something that I know will give me a sense of fulfillment… something that I can call mine!
LOOK who’s here now? Look whose blog you’re reading right now. Yes, its me Cristina a.k.a. Momsie (this is no longer available so I had to use Momsiecle for my domain name).
Yup, I did not take any literature class and I may not be able to pursue my plan of taking up Mass Communication or Journalism in college, but it will not stop me from doing things that I always love doing. I am happy with my career, but I am happier if my mind can speak and if my opinion will be known and that is something that my blog will allow me to do.
Happy reading peeps!
