Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Pen is mightier than the sword

It was a moment of intense tension. Tears dripped all over everybody's cheeks. Heartbeats seemed to heat up my insides making me numb for a little while. I was so confused with what to feel. Mixed emotions dominated my heart. I prayed so hard to hear what I wanted to hear.
What place would I be at? The worst question could be, Do I really have the chance to win this competition? Those were the things running in my mind while waiting for the announcement of winners in the Division Schools Press Conference. All of us crossed our fingers and closed our eyes. It was really a nerve-wrecking hour.
Six students brought glory in our school. I was fortunately on of them. Nothing else felt good than savoring the sweetness of victory. That added up to my happiness and fulfillment.
It would definitely help a lot if you enjoy writing despite the difficulties. Nothing is called wonderful if it didn't pass any distress at all. You couldn't appreciate one thing unless you accept its strain. I could say i love writing though I know sometimes my works are unappreciated.
My writing experience began when my mother transferred me to a public school. Teachers there sharpened students in different fields especially in writing. This skill should be enhanced because not everyone knows how to write substantial compositions. Some just have the confidence to speak in a huge crowd but poor in making good speech. Some even opt to hire someone to write their speech.
I had undergone many trials when I chose campus journalism as my world for six long years. It was in grade 5 when I first encountered creating an essay. With all honesty, I would say that I really had a hard time in doing even one paragraph. It crushed my heart and troubled my mind whenever our English teacher required us to pass one for our formal composition.
It wasn't very easy dealing with teachers who expect a lot from their students. You tend to be conscious composing such essays. As a beginner back then, I used to believe that length is one of the factors to impress readers. Yes, I write to impress, but that was before. I used to be so proud whenever composition reaches the back of my paper. I got overwhelmed whenever my classmates complimented it and eventually envied it.
I was really childish then. I really was. I even thought of going around the bush just to lengthen my work. However, as time passed by, that kind of mentality slowly rushed out from my head. Realizations began to conquer my mind.
I learned from Ed Fernandez's lecture to write as we talk. We write all things that pops out our mind like we are just conversing with people. But of course proper organization is also necessary.
One more thing that I learned was that we must write to express not to impress. This passage suited me because I used to write with one aim in mind- to get people's attention. That was a wrong intention that lead me astray before.
Writing continuously teaches me a lot of things each day. I consider it as a treasury box of new escapades ahead. It is only in writing where you broaden your mind and ensnare your senses.
My experience with this skill made me boost my self-confidence somehow. Because of this skill, I achieved a lot of things I never thought I would have. Though I'm not genius enough in writing, I still could say that I have proven my worth as a campus journalist.
To sum it all up, my life in writing is one heck of an adventure. The things you learn from it is continual. Experiences and the realizations you get from it is never-ending. You just have to be tough to endure its sharpenings.
Here you find out that reality and fantasy could be one when you believe.
