Seeking perfection in your first blog post

+ What happens if you get this third star?

– Celebration. Fireworks. Sainthood, immortality. Perfection.

the line above comes from the movie “Burnt”, in which Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) was once a top chef in Paris until drugs and alcohol led to a meltdown that put his career on hold.

After moving from New Orleans to London, Adam gets a shot at redemption when his former manager reluctantly hires him as the head chef of his fine-dining restaurant.

Demanding perfection from his newly formed staff, the temperamental Jones gets a second chance to fulfill his dream of earning a third Michelin star.

I highly encourage you to watch this movie.


just in case there’s some sort of introduction needed, part of me buried deep inside, always made me feel like I wanted to start my own blog. where I can write stuff down and be okay with people not reading them. you know,, just to have that feeling of doing it.

and then, I met someone who was doing it. well, not with the same intentions I’m guessing… but with a little bit of help and motivation, I did it. and what was left to do was not much but the blogs name, theme, subject, posts (specially the first one, daammnn!) and all the stuff I’ve never done before.

I mean wow.. at this point I don’t even know if I should be avoiding cliches or to follow them =/

therefore I chose an overused subject to discuss here and fill some holes with my idea of how I can put my first post out and have it sit here while I’m out there trying to be perfect.

“Trying” to be perfect

isn’t that an endless loop ?? loops are sad. means there’s no room for spontaneity and adventure. and what is a life worth if you know what’s about to happen and what’s not? duh, stupid questions here.

so I feel like the answer to my question of this whole trying to be perfect thing being a loop would be a no.

“since if you’re trying to do it the perfect way, then it means there’s always room for improvement. regardless of all the madness that might come along with it.”

and that simply outlines my way of life. and so on the word perfect itself contradicts the idea of my imaginery loops.

the catch of course, is that there’s literally no perfect way to do it! you just gotta find a clue that resembles your thoughts and morality and nurture it as best as you can. (case in point, there’s no perfect way to start off your blog, you just do it.)

sooo, let me not get ahead of myself and go on with the ending here:

it’s also worth mentioning that cliches and mediocre subjects could be confusing to creative people who struggle with the “illusion” of perfection. since creating something of your own needs time. it needs energy and that’s maybe too hard for the human brain to handle. but there always is the choice of tweaking stereotypes and doing it in your own way. hmmmm?

and for you, there might not be much here for now but,, maybe come back tomorrow?
