Reading (Hobbies #4)

Reading is an efficient way to broaden and strengthen your knowledge and capacity of mind. It gives us insight and perspective on how we should perceive certain things. For example, reading the newspaper and magazine gives us information about the society, politics, passions, etc. Another example is books and textbooks gives us learning information for the future to come. Or reading can be a form to pass the time. 

Reading books with any genre gives you a concept on how the world looks like and when you read the lines of each chapter, your mind creates the scene like you are their with the characters. It also gives you the feeling of what the protagonist is experiencing such as suspense, joy, depression, fury and many more. 

Reading is a way to escape the problems of your life and see the way the book wants you to analyze. Read and be aware!

Some of my favorite books are:

The Ranger’s Apprentice Series by John Flanagan (featuring a young ranger overcoming a war)

Mythology Series by Rick Riordan (featuring some of the Greek Gods as modern people)

All of Sidney Sheldon Books

Singing (Hobbies #3)

Singing is like reading the words out loud with melody or saying a poem with tune but singing is more than that. It is a way to the people’s heart depending on the genre of music. It is writing lyrics to for everyone with a specific purpose which is to let us feel and be aware of something.

There is a quote that says, our favorite song is our favorite song because we think of an emotional event to go along with it or we can relate to that feeling, to that moment. Singing is always coupled with writing. Lyrics and melodies combined make songs harmonized.

Who are your favorite singers?

Mine are, whom I love to hear everyday:

Writing (Hobbies #2)

Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a kid as well as Architecture. Making stories, making these posts inspire me everyday because it came from experiences, what I observe or any idea that comes to mind. It is way to express youself, be yourself in text. It is also a way to reach out to people who needs help or just needs a way to be happy. Writing can be made into stories, poems, songs, articles and many more. Writing can touch the people’s heart by reviewing the context of society as well as individuality.

Here are some good writers I know today:

Drawing/Doodling (Hobby #1)

For me, drawing is a special thing. It keeps me company and actually not bored. With drawing, I made several comics that every time I see it, nostalgia comes through me. Drawing is just life-changing for me because it got me where I am now, an architecture student. Even though, it is not all about drawing, it requires you to and that is fine with me. Ever since I was kid, drawing or doodling is a part of me, a way to past time, a way to tell stories.

What is drawing for you?

Here are some creative drawers today that I know and inspire me:
