I like quotes. Here are some quotes I’d like to post to ‘strengthen’ what I’m really like.

"Everything feels important to me, but when I try to get it down on paper, it seems like nothing anyone else would be interested in." – Rookie Magazine’s blog.

I actually have interests in writing, like, literally. I write about everything, from poetic words, wise words (which I hate right now), and even, reviews about restaurants, and books. I have always like the joy of writing. Like, it doesn’t only entertain you, or give you some informations, but words also strengthen you, or sometimes, influence you. If you don’t think so, then don’t use music as your, name it, moodbooster.

As I said before, sometimes writing can be so confusing. Especially when you intentionally write to amuse people. I have that one weakness of always being afraid of not being idealist. But sometimes, to write means to put every idea into the paper. At first, I didn’t always believe in these words because it sounds so careless. Until I found John Green, my favorite author, said:

“And don’t make stuff because you want to get famous — because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people — and work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice and like the gifts.
Maybe they will notice how hard you worked, and maybe they won’t — and if they don’t notice, I know it’s frustrating. But, ultimately, that doesn’t change anything — because your responsibility is not to the people you’re making the gift for, but to the gift itself.”

It gives me so much strength to believe, that, the purpose of writing is not (always) to amuse people, but to give the writing itself the best writing. The best thing to joy the writing itself is just how to put your ideas, because every idea is worth the likes.

“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.” – The Fault in Our Stars.

I actually have so many things to talk about. But, I think it’s just too boring to give you 10000 facts about me, Amanda Trinita, unless you know me in person. But from my thoughts you may conclude, that I’m still someone whose adolescence-is-on-the-edge that needs to learn more.
