(English Friday) My Word for 2015: AWESOME

Assalaamualaikum,

Some of you who read this blog from when it started may notice how my writings has changed from time to time. When I started to write, I was just completed my Academic Writing Class. That's why mostly I wrote posts in English on the first year. But then on the second year, I started to connect with many bloggers and I found out that when I wrote in Bahasa, my readers became more engaged.

I write in English every once in a while now, but not frequently. I still love to write posts in English, it's just sometimes I have no reason to. Until I found this post of Blog English Club on Dani's blog and I asked to join.

Blog English Club was founded By Nita, Ryan, and Dani. The purpose is to encourage bloggers to write in English. We have a chat group in Whatsapp to chat in English, and have Mba Yo and Mikan as mentors. We also have something we called English Friday, it's when all of the members write a particular topic in English every Friday.

Whoa! I'm so excited because today is the very first of English Friday! :D

The first topic of English Friday is: our word for 2015. I've thought about it. I was going to choose the word: POSITIVE. Because I want to feel and think more positive about myself this year. But then I recalled my post about happiness last week, and I thought I need another word for 2015. 

My daughter was watching The Lego Movie when I was thinking about it. The word just stroke me when Emmet sang,"Everything is AWESOME..." and I decided that is my word for 2015.



MY WORD FOR 2015 IS: "AWESOME"

This picture is taken from here.

I think "Awesome" is a perfect word. It's a word we say when we feel grateful or content about something. 


  • I want to do what people called "Carpe diem" or "Seize the day". I want to just enjoy every minute of my life and make the most of my time. 
  • Putting all the negativities aside and be more confident. There were some mistakes that I made, or may be there will be some mistakes I will make along this year, but I hope I can still make them right and feel awesome.
  • I need some achievements to feel awesome. So I want to achieve some personal goals and some family goals too this year. Bismillah... :).

At the end of the year, I want to look back and say, "What an awesome year! And I'm so grateful." 

It's not going to be easy, I know. But it's better to start than never, isn't it? :D. 

Wassalaamualaikum.

    Mia, I love your writing in English, it's very easy to understand :D I was just thinking to change my blog to Bahasa (because like you said, seems like there's more engagement with blog readers in Bahasa) but then got encouraged to use English again by joining BEC :)
