Strange Fruit, Kay Ganda! I can’t believe it’s been 3 full years of blogging (and shamelessly plugging) Strange Fruit, better known as chicogarcia.wordpress.com when I squeeze it through an unsuspecting Delamar on the Morning Rush. My relationship with my blog has gone through ups and downs, just like a romantic relationship. Some days it feels like a burden, forcing myself to write post something instead of catching up on much needed sleep. But on other days, it’s a lifesaver, acting my only grip on sanity, as I cling ever so precariously at the edge. What was supposed to be a mere exercise in writing, a passing hobby, has become a full-time commitment. When I travel, I worry and fuss about the days I can’t post. When I wade through the muck of life, I think about how I can relate it in terms of my blog. There’s my life as I live it, and my life as I recount it on digital memory.
I don’t know until when I’ll be blogging, because for sure I’m bound to stop some time, but I must say I’m really having the time of my life. This is the most I’ve been able to write in my life; I’m finally doing that which I’ve always wanted to do. It’s not as fancy as writing books or writing for films, but it’s writing, and that’s what I love. I really should answer comments more. I may not get to answer as often as I should, but I assure you that I get to read, absorb and appreciate every single comment you guys post on this blog.
So here’s to more years together, Happy 3rd Anniversary, Strange Fruit! Happy 3rd Anniversary to us!
