(355) – 18 Day Challenge


I am thinking of an 18 day challenge whether it’s a writing challenge, a fitness challenge or any other personal one but it has to be only 18 day beginning from today.

I am currently reading a book called Just After Sunset by Stephen King. It’s simply a collection of short stories that includes a couple of truly wonderful stories you should not miss. What I really like is where the story begins and how it ends. Sometimes, I really get lost in the first few pages especially if there’s much description of every thing where I fail at understanding every single word but it’s still worth reading because you can’t just throw the book away, I mean I can’t tolerate myself for doing such a thing, it’s kind of a challenge to whether or not I can push myself to read…

Just After Sunset actually opened my eyes to story writing and what a fantastic adventure it’d be to reach new areas and thoughts in your mind that you never knew about. I guess the beauty of it comes later on, after years of writing and mastering the stories then you go back to your first trials and realize how far you’ve gone. Moreover, I was amazed by the girl who appeared on Humans Of New York the other day talking about the characters and the world she invented and how everything was just so good and relevant. In other words, it was the sign I wanted to try to write a story.

Somethings are not merely random or coincidence, they’re in fact opportunities in disguise wandering to be recognized and seized upon eagerly, so my 18 Day Challenge is going to be about writing stories, 18 different stories for the next 18 days.

Did I mention why “18” in particular?! 😉

 

(354) – Spring

It’s April 1st, I feel very good and optimistic about this year. I have been working diligently on my resolutions and it’s actually paying off so good so far. I am trying to apply, to practice what I read and learn everyday. I am trying to invest in myself, each and everyday one thing at least.

I’ve got my driving license, I’ve read 6 books so far and they’re A Christmas Carol, A Smile Of Fortune, Two Wolves, The Idiot Girl And The Flaming Tantrum Of Death, To Kill A Mockingbird & The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People. They were all amazing books especially The 7 Habits; it took me like 50 days to finish it since I didn’t read in it everyday but when I did, I was submerged in the essence of the book and completely interested in it. To Kill A Mockingbird was wonderful too especially after the high recommendations from many friends on the book which made me watch a movie called 12 Angry Men after finishing that book -The movie and the book are somehow relevant but I just can’t remember how LOL-…

One of my best resolutions this year is to move up with my blog to the next level, I’m still unsure whether I should start a new one or keep posting here. However, I’ll probably keep posting here for a while especially after the edits I’ve done on the title -Till Graduation And Beyond- but what really matters is to keep up the writing and become a writer eventually, a well-known one!

I still didn’t get a job, I am supposed to start looking for one now and that’s what I’m going to do next. One of my friends suggested something that appealed to me which is becoming an air host, not really sure of that because sometimes we underestimate ourselves and that’s what probably happened to me at first but I will give it a try.

Today, I am more determined and focused on the future. Positivity and optimism are two paramount factors to leading a happy life. Success is on the other side of fear, it really is, and actions are what we need. 🙂
