Dear anyone who reads my blog(who is preferably a Malaysian studying in a college or a university, in or out of the country.)
Whenever I pitch my ideas to the editor at R.age, I try to come up with ideas that people my own age group can relate to. My ideas usually require me to probe my friends(and their contacts) about stories. Sometimes they might not like to share it with me because they don’t like to be out in the open. You know, privacy and all that jazz. So I’m putting up my story ideas here on my blog and hope that those of you who are reading this, can choose one topic that you can relate to with relevant experience, and email me your story with a nice high resolution photo of yourself(say more than 1.5mb-2mb) and I’ll edit it and incorporate it into the article that I would be writing. Just send me your stories in a blog entry form.
Here are my ideas:
1. Housemates: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
I’ve got a few stories so far, but I’m looking for happy housemates stories. It’s very rare to find a bunch of housemates who get along fabulously with each other. Maybe you don’t have to include all your housemates, but like your best-housemate-friend kinda stories. I’d like a nice photo of the lot of you smiling or having some fun(High res please please please!)
Then we get to the juicy part. Loathe a housemate to bits? Let me know.:) As for this part of the story, it’s up to you if you want to remain anonymous.
2. The Torment Of Long Distance Relationships
*proud of self* I’d like to think that it’s a pretty good topic as there are many people(or people’s other halves) who are flung out of the country in the name of education who would relate to this story rather well. In my simple, assuming, nosey manner, I’d like to think that in every four couples at the age of 19-23, one of them would be in a long distance relationship(LDR). I have NO facts to back this up. *action face*. Just simply guessing. I suppose a lot of people are suffering from LDR. At times it doesn’t even feel like a real relationship because you don’t get to take care of each other as much as you would like to?
For this story, I’ve got quite a few stories about couples who are in an LDR. About four stories, maybe. But I could do with some more if any of you are willing to share. I’ve got a few questions lined up so do email me. I would need your other half to help with the questions. 🙂 And of course, a nice high res photo of the both of you.
For the flip side of the story, surely there have been LDRs that have gone up in flames. If you’re willing to share, I’m willing to write. I’ll definitely keep you anonymous. *puts on kind voice* This can be as one sided as you would like it to be. 🙂
3. Your Most Embarrassing, Funniest, First Time Driving Experiences
I’ve got a few already..and strangely they are all from girls. -_- It could be boo-boos you made during your driving lessons or your driving exams(my favourite kind. I’m currently begging for the approval from two friends for their stories.) or even the most bodoh on-the-road experiences that you had during your first few attempts at driving. I’ve got a few like the most unheard of way of getting out of a saman, a bunch of girls screaming and abandoning their car after it scratched the side of the wall when they turned into a tight corner…etc. Classic stories, that’s what I’m looking for. I’ll incorporate my own into it as well.:) My infamous u-turn incident.
So yeah, I would be incredibly grateful if you can share your stories with me. In fact, I would have to owe you a favour in return. 🙂
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know and I’ll email you some questions after receiving your story(or you can give me a brief idea of what you want to share and I’ll take it from there.)
