To fill up the About Me section

Hi there again. ‘Tis my second blog post for tonight. Addict! I’m simply making the most of my time here. You see, tomorrow is not another rat race (a Saturday), but I’ve got lots of other things to attend to. Why am I explaining? Anyway, I just figured out it’s best to give this public ideas about me. I’m getting narcissistic, an effect of our YouTube generation, but I don’t wanna be a victim of it. Though you may say separating a section to define oneself is confirming the said idea, I care not? Of course I do. It’s that I think it’s fair enough for you to know the author to give you an understanding to where her ideas come from. And upon typing  the statement, “notes about the author” on paperbacks is visual depicted in my mind. And yes, I’m also thinking that maybe you may not follow me for the rest of the year, to really get to know me better. The “me” in this personal cyberspace --- the space where you have the freedom, I must reiterate. The freedom to read Manikeen’s articles for free.
I used the said alias because of the following reasons:
  • The alias manikin is not available
  • It sounds Filipino (akin, suntukin, bitin), lalala.
  • It sounds kikay, too ‘coz I think I am, inside
  • Changed it to “keen” for though I’m not that visually observant, I’m a detailed person.
I’m biologically female and gender-wise, a woman. I’m more into arts than sports. More into music than dance. I’m more into journal-writing than poems. More into math than history. I’m more into reading than watching TV. More into philosophy than politics. I’m no atheist nor agnostic. I love, God. I must also say I’m a better organizer, composer & actress than a critic, cook & director. Oh, how boring now, to be speaking of oneself. But anyway, I do hope ‘tis give you a framework of your author. And for the last time, I must say, I’m more into creating my own than following others, though I oftentimes appear otherwise at first glance.

I do not know if I’ve written good enough to justify the intention of my 2nd post. But I guess it’s time to say, good night world. Zzz… J

Manikeen's Intro to Blogging

And then, I started to write again. I do not know how many times I already have used this line in my previous attempts to blog. But then I guess this time around, this is not just another attempt. But really, it had been quite a while since I wrote for a purpose. The last time was when I intended to finish a journal that when I got along the way had the idea to give it to the “apple of my eye.” And yes, I did. ‘Twas such a personal thing to do. And yes, such a personal thing to disclose this early. But yes, I have given my diary to someone I barely knew. Someone I had just admired from afar. And since then, I guess I wasn’t able to have a major major project to feel really great about. Aside from my attempts to blogging, I have written quite a few just to let myself go of the occasional tension and stresses of life.

Yes, I am more of the introvert person when it comes to my personal ambitions and opinions in life. And maybe that’s what kept from blogging for the past few years. This week, I had kept a quote in memory: “The world tells you to be yourself, and then they judge you.” True or False? Tralse! No, TRUE. Still, I started to reconsider, need I reveal my true identity (here in blogging) if I wanna be myself? What if that keeps me from revealing what I really think about? And if I revealed my identity, would you not judge me that I am really being me? Ok, it feels like I’m starting another topic. But I know that you get my point. My English is basic enough for you to understand. You see, I’m no prolific writer or editor, I’m just a blogger who wants to add up to the ideas being shared in the community.

I really like writing my thoughts out. Out of all my fave hobbies, this one’s allows me the most of freedom. A blank is such a space to fill up and see the product of my brain. Haha. Brain drain. I do not know why I even write that out, but I just like the way it rhymes and the way it keeps me from writing bit longer and practice my typing skills. In here, I could just pull you off and back again to where I’m leading you. That is, the art of writing. You see, we all have many intentions and purposes on why we write. I may enumerate, but that’s too formal and educational. Let’s just say, in writing, there are two things that may happen. You tell the truth or you lie. But hey, don’t be taken aback. I hope you will get to know that you are reading more of the former. You may continue if you believe... Writing maybe exposing to people what do you really want them to believe or they may catch you from what you’re trying to keep in real circumstances. You see, my high school best friend and I are among friendliest people I know, but then again, though people think we are more of the “open” ones, think not. We can still better relay our emotions through writing. And if you are normal, you must agree on this. Hehe.

Writing is exercise. Writing is fun --- for those who know how to use it. I only hope to blog, first, because I love to write; two, I wanna share my thoughts out for those who share my sentiments; and three, I care not what the world will think of my first two reasons. I mean, I am being myself here and you have the freedom to judge me according to your on perception of things. And from that point of judgment, we’ll both meet the understanding of where our difference lies. Good evening world. J
