[DAY 0] The Start of a New Journey

Hi there,

I’m back, again, for many reasons. Counting from 0. I think I’m ready.

I have been fully aware that the days have gone by fast without my mind even catching up with what has happened. The world is moving at its “full” speed, and there’s an urge to be up-to-date, to live to the fullest, to do as many things and live the many lives. However, as Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living,” I understand that it’s unwise to not create space for reflection and deep thinking. So for the next days/months/years, my goal is to make an effort to learn something everyday, write it down, and share on my blog.

That was the first reason. The second reason is that I need a distraction from the news, social media, and the world itself even though I’m in it. My mind has been crushed with voices shouting criticism. sadness. anger. confusion. delusion. They made my days uneasy and my nights deep in sorrow. I’m grateful for the sun, the weather, the birds chirping and the chill breezes, but never have I asked one question this many times, “when is this going to end?” So, I decided I would emerge myself in what I love doing most: reading, writing, learning, and figuring out how things work. I hope this is a way for me to educate myself and to motivate me during days when the last thing I want do is to do anything. I want to keep going. And I will.

As you can see, I started this journey with mixed feelings, hoping to bring the goods out of it. I will be posting here, but I’m also working on a new website that, hopefully, is more permanent. It’s still a secret for now since there’s still a lot to do. But I’ll get there. And I believe the same for everyone else: the world will get there. Humanity. You. and Me.

Hey Me, or You, if you’re reading this and don’t understand what I mean by the world with its messiness, I’m here to remind you that there’s an outbreak going on that forces everyone to stay home: yesterday was my first time going to the store after two months. There’s a black man who got killed by a white police and there are protests in many parts of America. Some of them are protests in peace, but many others are with arms and destruction. We don’t know what to do. We just know that we need to do something. Also, I signed a petition and donated today. In addition to the global mess, I have my personal mess, too. But that’s too personal.
