Hey, I’m Albert, the runaway panda (In case you’re confused: No, I’m not a real panda). Even though the name sounds dorky, believe me, I’m not.
Well, I could be called knowledgeable. But, on my daily lives, I’m really just a person trying to have fun. I love eating, cooking, travelling, playing games, and of course, writing.
My big mission in life is to finish my bucket list. That bucket list varies from bungee jumping, eating in the best restaurant in the world, or even the easy ones like solving a Rubik’s cube.
Living in Jakarta has always been an ambiguous choice – not that I have a choice. On one hand, when you’re a Citizen of Indonesia, people expect you to have a ‘normal life’ Study in a ‘normal’ university. Have a ‘normal’ office job. But, I’m not that sort of person.
I dream big. I dreamed that, someday, I will carve my name in history. So, I’m doing my best right now! Don’t get me wrong though, I don’t hate Indonesia, but at the same time, I don’t think it’s the right country for me.
What ‘big dream’ do I have anyway? Frankly, I’m not quite sure. When I was a child, I’ve always wanted to be a great inventor, like Albert Einstein, but later I realized that it’s a long and lonely path, and I want a fun life, full of spark and joy! So, I decided to change my dream. At twelve, I discovered that I love playing computers and that there’s a job dedicated to it, called software engineer. After a few online courses from Code Academy, I concluded that I don’t particularly like coding.
So, I pondered what my great dream might be, and that’s when it hit me. I don’t like coding, but I do always love writing essays, that’s when I decided to approach journalism. Maybe my dream will change after a while though, but I’m at least 70% sure, that journalism is something that won’t get tedious after a while, especially when it’s on English. We’ll see though. So don’t be too surprised, if someday I found a new dream. 😉
I started this blog because, well, I’m kinda bored of doing the same things over and over again. And also, I need to express my creativity. Because this is the easiest way to solve those problems, I decided to blog. Killing one bird with two stones, yay!
I’m not gonna lie, my first and second preference of domains are gone, but hey, I found this awesome one still trying to find its owner! I hope you don’t judge me harshly as I’m new to this ‘blogging’ thing (critics are welcomed though). And because you already decided to click on the ‘about’ page, you must either miss clicked or you’re a huge fan of mine, and if you’re the latter, lets run away together!
Your Runaway Panda.
