Worth to Read Weblog[3]

I still remember the first time I knew that Jason Mraz was writing a blog himself. Yes, a blog, named Freshness Factor Five Thousand, not a personal website like the other celebrities do. Of course he also has a personal website, his team takes care of it for him. But his own blog? He takes care of it for his fans 🙂 …and for his “own satisfaction”, like he said. Because he likes to write and therefore he’s a blogger. He also once stated on his twitter that he doesn’t tweet by himself, that his yoga instructor does this for him, because he’s more of a blogger not a microblogger. How sweet is that 😉 don’t you think?

The first time I did after I knew about this fact was linking his blog to mine, of course :p Whatelse could a fan like me do? Then finally I read his entries on blog, which turned out to be amazing ones. Amazing because he always courage us to become more aware about the earth and its environment. He shares his thoughts and mind about gratitude*) towards earth. He also shares his daily activities, in not a cheesy way, which also inspiring. Because he, in fact, is not living his life in a celebrity way. He lives his talks about becoming friendlier to the earth.

He’s a green activist himself, like Leonardo diCaprio 😉 From him and his articles, I learned not to buy mineral water anymore. Not because of the price, but because of the packaging bottle which is made of plastic. I succeed to follow this act, only until my own overpriced tumbler was broken :p Not that I follow him blindly. I also agree to his arguments. Thousand steps always start from a single one. If we can’t tell people to live greener, no problem. We start from ourself. Perhaps, the others will be inspired to follow our acts.

I remember a friend of mine said that Jason’s articles are kinda serious ones, a little bit heavy thoughts. I couldn’t say anything, but agree about this one. We know him as a famous musician. But if we hope to read his writing as a cheesy one,  believe me, we’ll never gonna get one. I actually glad to read his not-too-light-writings. This really is the kind of figure we wish to follow, right? Not those who regularly hit the rehabilitation center for their addictions to alcohol. He’s still a normal fine guy after all.

So, if you wish to be inspired, please do follow his blog 🙂 I remember I used to online via Snaptu on my handphone, only to read Jason’s blog on Snaptu’s Feed. Blogspot isn’t a friendly blogging platform due to bandwith, and neither is Snaptu.

If you know nothing who Jason Mraz is, please do google him :p

So again I falled into another blog-thingy whilst I already have 2 blogs (wordpress and blogspot) and a microblog (twitter). Dear God please save me. Blame my sister for it because somehow I found her Livejournal and the fact that she left her blogspot. The difference is that she changes blogs so easily (from wordpress to blogspot to livejournal) while I keep my loyalty to wordpress *haha*. Let say this is the unstable part of me who still wants to tries on new thing (playing around) while I have so many things to do.

I’m not overreacting it. It’s true that I have SO MANY things to do. I have deadlines in Monday (Decision Support System Individual Task), Tuesday (Final Assigment Individual Proposal), and Wednesday (Facilities Design Group Task). You could count them with a hand BUT believe me.. even only with those 3 I won’t be able to spend my holiday (from Thursday to Sunday) as it is. Yet I still able to create a new blog and write on a first post. Don’t ask me how and why lol.

I name this blog as The Grey Area not ony because its original layout is in grey (colour). But I also refer that grey to the grey cells as in our brain. Just a few hours ago I realized that I’m much a Feeler than a Thinker which I’m quite sure that I’m the last one but I’m not. And the fact that I’m much a Perceiver than a Judger while I also sure that I’m the last one but again I’m not.

I hope this blog will keep my personality type balances hence records the journal of my (grey) life.

Keep on reading!
