A lot of people have been asking me why I haven't been active on The Write Type's instagram recently. There are a lot of reasons I was able to retrieve from reasons.com. Haha. First, I've been enjoying roaming around the streets and venturing into places I've never even known existed here in Manila. I've been going to a lot of gigs quite recently, just for a little change of scenery. Second, I lost all my calligraphy nibs after I did my demo in an event. I've gotten over it, I think. Don't worry. Third, I've been more into fountain pens recently, so I've taken a short break from pointed pens and flexible nibs. Lastly, I don't write things for the purpose of posting. I write because I want to. I post because I want to. But I don't write because I want to post. They are two separate events that don't lead one into another.
Anyway, last year, I met this bubbly freshie from Arki during block handling. We became friends online, and she probably saw photos of my mail. She asked me how I got penpals and told me that she wanted to write too, and she even asked me to be her penpal. Throughout the school year, we'd exchange small handwritten notes and letters and we kind of lost track towards the end of the school year. We saw each other again just last week and she gave me another letter. So tonight, I wrote her back. Here's the envelope.
This year, I am also part of UAPSA's ExeComm. We had a tambayan cleanup today, and I wanted to do a little revamp and make use of the walls we have, so I made a weekly announcement/schedule board. People nowadays rely on the internet for updates and communication. We are slowly missing out on human touch interaction. It is my goal to strike a balance between the two and I wish to encourage members to visit the tambayan through posting announcements and reminders there.
That is all for this post. Don't forget to follow @thewritetype on Instagram!
