Welcome to my personal Blog.

Over the years, I’ve been blogging on and off on various platforms. I’ve posted on blogger, tumblr, medium and in various past WP versions and didn’t really consolidate my blogs in one place or took my blogging seriously.

During the Covid 19 pandemic lockdowns, I happened upon this blog titled “Your life in weeks” (https://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/life-weeks.html). I did the exercise of breaking down my life in weeks and the results just blew my mind. Scary. To think that at age 56, and Malaysian average life expectancy of 76, almost 2/3 of my life had already passed by.

There was so much I had done, seen, learned and experienced but I could not recall most of it until I was prompted to recall those memories through the exercise.

It felt like such a waste that I had gone through some lows and some highs, met some great people, and had some awesome moments but could not recall most of them. It was a sad feeling to realize that I may have gone through life mindlessly.

This blog is a result of that exercise and realization. I decided that I needed to consolidate my life in one place so that it would be easier for me to recall, that I needed to have a life journal and hence this blog.

This blog is primarily to serve as a repository of my life and if you found your way here, I hope you find some humor and insight in this blog.

If you feel the urge, do reach out to me on any of my social media linktr.ee/johanamilin . I would really love to hear from someone who has read any of my blog posts.
