Welcome to my category page! This is where, if you are still a little bit confused, I will explain in brief detail, a backgrounder on why I let the letters to my persona stand for what they are.
You probably already know the beginning of kcreol:
Initially used as a pseudonym and username in many literary works and accounts, it’s only recently, upon the creation of this blog that I decided to let it stand for something. I want it to reflect me.”
Kikay is Filipino for girly. That’s the closest I can define it. Basically, it’s someone who loves pink, makeup, something glittery, cute, etc.
Challenge, because I first thought of just naming my blog as “30 by 30”. I thought of engaging readers who’re trying to lose weight and for me, this applies as I aim to lose 30 lbs by the time I hit the big 3-0. It could also stand for a list of 30 things to do in my bucket list before I turn 30. So far, those two are the things that I’ve thought of before a blogger friend told me that it’s such a boring name and it’s too limited. Thanks a bunch! But I appreciate it.
Reflections, because I’m a very reflective person, I think. I think a lot, being an only child and a homebody (that’s little tidbit about me for you). I tend to be quiet and just let my mind roll, figuratively speaking that is. I have a lot of thoughts and some of them have been the subject of my three other blogs. Yeah, I blogged before but that was when I was a teenager and dealing with identity crisis and finding answers to the questions “Who am I?” or “Why am I here?” Therefore, to still allow myself to let out my wonderful thoughts, I thought to give them space in this blog as well. Who knows, maybe someone can answer my life long questions or even share the misery with me. For your amusement, you can look at my attempt to answer these questions here.
Eudemonia. This is my attempt in being poetic. This actually refers, according to Dictionary.com, to
happiness as the result of an active life governed by reason.”
It is an Aristotelian thought. The reason why I chose this is because I love activities that have to do with the human body! Primarily, I love dance, yoga, and have tried my hand in pole dancing! I also like Zumba and all sorts of sports. I could go on but my point is that this portion of my blog will tackle all the activities I have done, am doing, and will do so I can share the experience and excitement with all the couch potatoes out there and of course, those who also love getting physical!
On the Road will address my wanderlust. Being a dreamer, I look within and find myself in different worlds. But in a mundane set up, I’d also like to see what the actual world offers, albeit a little less vibrant. Who knows, I might surprise myself.
Literature, because I am a bookworm. I have mentioned and explained this in my post entitled A Little Lot About Me so I don’t think I have to delve into it so much. However, this may include my opinions (I’d rather use “opinion” than “review”) on books I’m currently reading or have read. Fair warning also, this may include my attempt to share my literary works. I’m a rusty creative writer and having studied law almost obliterated it. Still, I wish to get back on the ride.
