A rule of thumb for me, through countless endeavors, has always been to be aware of what I'm signing up for. This notion serves to remind me to ponder over not only what's being asked of me, but what my limitations are. This perpetual repetition of always trying to gauge myself in terms of what the task asks of me and my ability to do justice to it has aided me greatly, cumbersome as though it may seem. It's enabled me to dissect my shortcomings to a point where I can chart a course forward and overcome these flaws. In essence, it's made me who I am.
I say this only because this tenacity warrants mention, as does my unrequited passion for writing. I started writing contents four years ago, at the age of 17 and have worked both freelance and for a company since then. I've pondered over my abilities and shortcomings for most articles for those four years to a point where the act of pondering itself is quite redundant, if only because I'm already aware of my skill as a writer and what tools need sharpening.
While I've written all sorts of content, I'm deferential to prompts that give the writer somewhat of a creative leeway in terms of expression and setting the overall tone, and hence deem creative writing as my strongest suit. In terms of topics I would prefer writing about, as a fan of tech and a Data Science major, I've written many a scientific/technological article in my time. As an avid basketball fan, I'm also partial to writing NBA articles as well (thereby redeeming countless wasted hours of watching TV). Lastly, while I don't enjoy reading articles in academia as much as articles in tech or sports, I find that writing them is always enjoyable, given the degree of difficulty and the learning that takes place whilst researching them. However, as someone who prizes themselves on their versatility, I'm always on the lookout for something out of my comfort zone. If the endgame is to be flawless, I figure I should be comfortable with any sort of prompt.
