In preparation for my trip to Japan, I thought I would try my hand at this blogging business. Having no ability whatsoever in creative writing and lacking in communication skills in general, starting and maintaining a blog is somewhat of a challenge for me. However, it is my wish that this endeavour will enable me to express myself better in both verbal and written forms as I gain confidence that I am not simply spouting a load of nonsense. A cliché by now, but this blog is mainly for my own sake; a place to pour my thoughts and feelings when my brain feels like it will overflow. Nonetheless, I will bear in mind that everything written here will be readily accessible for the public, thus I won’t treat it as a secret diary where I divulge my inner most desires and fears. I won’t introduce myself as this blog is not about me, it is merely a pale, but permanent reflection of who I was and who I am.
