As you guys know, I’ve been on a very long hiatus from blogging since I moved to Australia in March 2017. It has been almost a year already and geez! How time really flies, huh? I thought about making this blog post since the first day I arrived in Australia, but oh well, life happened. I know I’ve been making a lot of excuses to be back in writing my blog, but I think only God knows how to drag someone back from the wrong to the right, lol..
What made me stop writing was actually the same exact reason why I didn’t start writing back in my University years. It was because of the camera! Back then I didn’t want to start blogging because I didn’t have a proper camera, and now my camera is half broken and I completely broke my 16mm lens too, so I left with my iPhone only.
The camera quality of my phone is actually not bad at all, and I actually did try to blog with the pictures that I captured from my iPhone, but I always thought it was not enough since I already set my picture quality to a certain standard, so yeah I left everything in the draft and just like that.. I stopped blogging.
I’m such a bad example, I know. I used to and still tell all of my readers or followers to never wait for anything in terms of starting a blog or any other creative platform that they want to start making. I tell them to start with whatever they have at the moment because if they wait, they probably would never even start. Just like what has been happening with me right now, I just stop…..
But I can forgive myself a little bit because I didn’t actually stop creating content, I still do, a little bit. I tried to compensate by making YouTube videos with my iPhone. and meanwhile, I got caught up in my comfort zone by not doing any writing at all. I got lazy and kept on blaming my working hours as a hospitality worker here (which actually also true). But that still can’t be used as an excuse, I know if I push myself a little harder, it all still can be done.
Fast forward to this date, I am now officially left with nothing…
My iPhone battery is now working very poorly, together with the cable charger as well, like… at the very exact same time. *cringe* So my life is basically a major struggle right now and I understand myself enough to know that if I don’t create something in between my stress, I could actually become depressed. I’m assuming this is how God giving me a little ‘push’ to go back in writing again.
This is me.. In front of my laptop again, typing things.. I’ll start with something basic for my next post, which is How to Apply for a Working & Holiday Visa to Australia from Indonesia in 2018. Exciting enough for you? Or not at all? Hahaha.. Anyways, I have to sleep now because I’m working in the morning tomorrow, but I’ll definitely see you guys in my next post soon, okay!
And if there’s anyone reading this, would you comment with any of your thoughts? I would love to read them and reply to them 🙂
