When words fall short out of your mouth, your hands start speaking. In my case, they do. A socially awkward person; someone who does not always know how to open or carry a conversation, I have always had difficulty in expressing my feelings. I would sit beside a person in a bus and spend the entire time plotting how to approach them. "I should say hi" I would think, "or ask them where they're going". I would finally have the appropriate words, just to look beside me and realize they had already left. For such a person, writing has always been a medium where I did not have to shy away or think for hours how I should start. As I hold the pen (or the keyboard these days), my hands automatically start moving. Therefore, when the opportunity of becoming a writer in a magazine arrived, I could not refuse.
Journalism has been one of my various passions since childhood. When I was small, I remember acting like an anchor and reading a story book in the best possible tone I could. Although, I am not an anchor today, writing for a magazine has been just as delightful. All the things and all my opinions that I had not been able to share orally, I could now share through my writing. I could now directly address the audience and there were no rules like those in academic writing. I felt free.
As I look back at the gap year I took, I believe it was worth it. I had a chance to explore my passion for writing. Having a paid job, I learned the value of money as I realized how painful it was to spend my own earning. With the interviews I conducted I was even able to overcome a lot of my awkwardness. Not only did my writing improve, but I believe I improved as a person. I have become more mature, more responsible and I can feel this change within me.
Nevertheless, I learned the freestyle dancing form, served my community, went on a tour to the most beautiful place, Pokhara, I still believe that this job as a writer has helped me grow the most and has made my stay worthwhile.
