      I've always known since I was a kid that writing is my passion. And alhamdulillah, my beautiful, knowing mother of mine knows that and keep pushing me to write (or wrote since it's been decades).

      I still remember my very own first short story when I was about 11 years old. It's about a kitten named Ginger Snap who is lost in the big weird world where some people treat her good while one or two makes it hell and how she survived. My mother loved it so much that she printed it and showed it to her colleagues and keep on talking about my so called masterpiece up until now. At the time, I took the courage to send it to my school's yearbook editor. It wasn't that good for me personally but with that kind of enthusiasm from your mother, how could you just not try?

      At the end of the year, I flipped through the yearbook eagerly but was devastated to not to see my karya in it. It felt horrible. My mother knew how much it meant to me and so she cheered me up and gave me one of her best it's-not-the-end-of-the-road kinda pep talk. Gullible as I was (and still is), I trust her back then. I keep on writing and so, here I am.

      As I watched the movies I've watched my entire life (which is a lot. ask anyone), I noticed that people in the movies who aren't happy with their lives or just plain old bored, draws or paints to get things out of their system. And every time they do so, I'll always question myself on what is my 'thing' that I go to when that is me.

      And then I realized - writing. Writing has always been the 'thing' I run to whenever I am mad, sad, bored, happy, in fear and so much more. People tell me that I'm witty at times but when it comes to an argument on something that I care about, I lost my words. I almost always have a great comeback, moments later when the time have passed, and it frustrates me a lot. But with writing, I can say anything and everything that I am feeling to the dot. Writing about anything down calms me. This particular post is actually caused by a 2010's movie It's Kind Of A Funny Story I've just watched.

      With words, I can be anything, I can say what is on my mind and with writing, I wish I could inspire people.

      I'm glad I found my passion. What's yours?
