Brain dump on writing and friendship — January 24, 2021

Brain dump on writing and friendship

Some of my friends challenge my thinking. Sometimes, this is a good thing (for me). Sometimes, I reject their view or opinion and carry on doing my own thing.

But every so often, someone will say something that has me hold on to their thought, their opinion, their perspective for a lengthy period of time.

This morning, I got an email from a friend who suggested that perhaps I am spreading myself too thin with all the writing projects I have on the go.

And I have been stumbling on this comment all day.

Blending blogging with podcasts

Disclaimer: The following post is about an experience I had listening to a podcast. I am not advertising the blogs or podcasts on behalf of the bloggers, although I did link to them.

Reaching out anyway – part 3

As some of you know, I went to school with a boy who became a famous, and internationally known musician, singer, guitar player.

Recap:

Since discovering him on social media and following him along, I have reminisced about an art class we both took in grade 11. I wanted to know if he, too, remembers that particular class. In part 1 of this story I wrote about how we met.

Getting to know one another: questions and answers

Thank you Michael of Kuched for having nominated me for an award.

I will answer his questions first, then nominate my list of people below along with my set of questions.

PS Michael has made me part of his morning routine. I am a ‘fix’ apparently. Hah. He also thinks I secretly rule the world…pfff. AS IF! Here is what he said about me: Continue reading

Reaching out anyway – part 2

To read part 1 click here.

After I sent that DM in Instagram to a former classmate, I walked away from my phone.

The memory I had of an event in grade 11 art class had triggered something in me to want to reach out to this man, a boy I once knew for many years in school and who is now a famous musician, singer and guitarist.

I was really curious: did he remember that class as vividly as I did? Continue reading
