Pretend there is a title because I can't come up with anything good.



I was hanging out with some friends the other day and we were talking.

A friend loves photography and thus believes having a professional camera makes a photographer better.

But another friend argued that the phone camera's quality are so good now that they can rival professional camera's.

The photography friend got a little mad, stating that there is a difference taking pictures with professional camera and phone camera. That professional camera has a better feel to it.

I thought about it.

And for some reason, it made me think of writing.

There are writers who love the typewriter because it has a really vintage cool feel to it.
There are writers who love the computers or laptop because it's easy.
There are writers who love pen and paper because you can feel yourself work and you can see the words really coming together.
There are writers who love writing on their phones because they are busy and it's convenient.

But which apparatus makes a writer better? Which apparatus makes a better writing?
And the answer is none.

Just like photography, it doesn't matter what camera you use.
I think what matters is whether you love it or not and enjoy it or not.

If you don't like taking pictures, you can have the best camera and it doesn't mean a thing. 
A camera doesn't make you a photographer.
Your photography makes you a photographer.

Just like having a pen and paper doesn't mean you are a writer.
Your writing makes you a writer.

And that is that.

IMHO, the gear and the user complements one another. Yes, a professional camera can achieve something that a phone camera cannot. This is a matter of fact that many are reluctant to accept.

The important thing is that however doesn't guarantee that the photos taken on the professional camera will be better.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen

Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
