Thank You So Much for 2.5K
It’s truly unbelievable—like a dream come true!
I was 14 years old when I wrote my first story here. And shortly after, I deleted it.
I have never talked about it before.
Why did I delete it? Because I thought I was not qualified. I doubted myself more than I should have. I felt inferior and unqualified—but that was all in my mind, as I’d later find out.
And then I silently read on Medium for months. I loved the platform and wanted to contribute. I wanted to publish my article on Medium.
Then, after gathering some courage, I posted another article that’s fortunately still up on the platform.
And it has been close to a year since I published that article. Yes, it’s been a long time, but it would not have been so interesting had it not been for you guys.
So first of all, thanks for all your continued support over the time. It means a lot to me. It is only because of your support and encouragement that a 15 y/o could get out there and write his heart out without the fear of being judged.
I love this Medium community. You guys are damn fab! Love y’all always. ❤️
So I was going through my old articles yesterday, and I couldn’t believe that it was me who wrote them.
Yes, that 15-year-old with a tablet had written them. I just can’t appreciate my past self enough for taking the initiative. For getting out there and expressing himself.
For continuing writing. For calling quits; but bouncing back. For every single thing.
Honestly, it feels like only yesterday that I was writing the post when I reached 1.5K. (I don’t know what kind of fetish I have for decimal milestones, like who the hell celebrates at 1.5K or 2.5K? Me!
Jokes aside, this journey on Medium has truly been a wonderful one. And I can’t imagine it without you guys.
As always, the second biggest question that always stands in front of us:
Unfortunately, I don’t have a concrete answer to that question. I don’t know.
I am interested in a lot of things and would like to explore all of them in the upcoming 6 months. Let’s see what sticks.
But whatever turns life takes, I’ll keep writing on Medium. That’s for sure. ☺️
Last year, I started a publication on Medium, but soon after I started to accept articles for publication, I abandoned it.
I left a couple of articles unpublished and didn’t return to them for a long time. I was off from Medium as well.
I regret that.
But I can’t be happier to announce that theMUSINGS is open to writers — new and seasoned alike — again.

Sorry for not accepting articles for so long.
And if you are new to Medium, this list of articles might help you get a lot of clarification. Plus, this is regularly being updated.
Okay, I think that’s it for this article.
This achievement calls for some celebrations, no? Some chill time? Maybe.
Why not go ahead and comment your favourite movies, series, books, or music? Let’s make the comment section a resource! 😅
Okay, bye! See you soon. 👋
