A journey to learn to write
“Hello, World” is the first words anybody writes when starting to learn to code.
Mine are to say that I’ll learn to write. I have never felt good at it. I have never found the act of communication to come naturally. I consider myself a speech dyslexic, swapping letters in words or concepts overall. I would find myself saying “get the beers out of the fridge to keep ‘em cool”.
I don’t think I master neither French, my mother tongue, nor English the language I studied for the past 10 years and worked for the past 5 yeas. I am a slow reader. I have been told reading helps writing, which I try and do as much as possible but I often find myself falling asleep quickly whilst reading. Not because I’m not passionate or don’t like it, but I feel my eyes get really tired.
So this is a start of a journey. I’m not intending to become a writer. I’m not intending to pretend I’ll write really well, but I’m going to give it a shot over the years. I’ll write about nothing specific but rather keep it as a journal of thoughts, of life, of business, of changes in my perceptions of the world.
I don’t expect anyone to read this either, there’s better stuff out there seriously, but if you do and have some feedback or some thoughts, let me know.
They say the best time to plant a tree was yesterday, the next best time is today. So here we are.
