This & That Including What Ails


on May 31, 2019

748 days I have posted non stop.

748 days is around 2.05 years and I have been diligently posting daily for 748 days.

A feat?

An addiction?

A joy?

A vent I used?

WordPress is a fun place and each post I write gives me much happiness as relieve as it allows me to vent and or get things off my chest when I have a lot to say.

It also helps me with constantly using English and stringing words together to form a story line. I studied English from kindergarten and to me, it is my first language. But then, actually, my mother tongue is supposedly Mandarin.

I am not good at Mandarin. I am fairly conversant in Bahasa to make small talk and get by.

I think and write in English whereas those who are strong in Mandarin use Mandarin to translate to English they wish to write in and this causes a difference in syntax as Mandarin is always the other way round and one can tell.

I watched a documentary recently on dementia and was alarmed to hear that a 48 year old suffered from dementia.

I do not wish to have a brain full of mush and come what may, I must use my brain to the fullest!

So, I am counting daily posts – WordPress calls it a “streak” – I call it prevention of being a freak! A mindless freak!

Ah well it is lunch time Friday and I am not complaining as I am having a breather posting this.

If you are where you are at and having lunch, enjoy!

If you are where you are at and having supper, enjoy!

If you are where you are at and having breakfast, enjoy!

if you are where you are at and having dinner, enjoy!

  1. i too find that posting in wordpress in my blog is very cathartic, very therapeutic. even if no one reads it , i find it is great to just be able to write about it, the very act is enough for me. the only danger i can see is if others misunderstand … and think that our ranting is complaining. it is not complaining, just a rant to release the pent up feelings that we might have, or mention the thoughts that we have when we read other people ‘s blogs and write about our thoughts that are prompted by other bloggers’ posts.
    once posted we let our thoughts go and can settle back to our good self.
    so i was thinking we too can misunderstand another person’s rant in their blog, and hope we can be forgiven too. and keep in mind, it is just ranting, and not to be taken seriously… once we have got it out of our system, we can get back to normal again.
