The first thing that popped in my mind right after typing the title was….the image of my Grade School Yearbook photo with my ambition as: To be a writer.
I WANTED to write when I was young! Even though ‘life’ happened, I continued writing, and writing, and writing, notebook after notebook. I was 7 or 8 years of age when I started the habit of journaling. Writing down my thoughts came naturally for me. I don’t remember speaking English at home, we were always using Filipino, but of course school taught me how to do this. The very first English book I read is called ‘Bug Off’. It’s about a sister who got so annoyed with her little brother that she wished for him to become a bug, and he did turn into a bug.
In college, I got a bit ‘techie’ and tried blogging. I used Blogspot for my very first blog. This, travelwithodyssa, is my third and the one that I am happiest with.
Through this blog, I got connected to a lot of brilliant human beings, travel became closer to my heart and I’m totally loving it!! With the amazing hand of the universe, I (or my online being) fell into the lap of WhatsUpBGC’s content editor and I got in as one of the contributing writers. Yey!
So these are some of the articles I have written so far. Some are ‘spin-offs’ of some of my blog posts.
WhatsupBGC is an online publication and a go-to site for anything BGC related – food, places, events, and everything else you can think of.
Here’s one of my favorites: The Bambike Art Tour in BGC
Check out this website that I’m writing for and I hope you pick up something new, and enjoy it!
Lesson: Do whatever it is that fuels you and makes life richer. Keep doing it even if you don’t get recognized. Work hard.
