Today, I just want to tell you a little more about me. I know everyone's favourite subject is themselves, but I am doing this because I feel maybe it will give you a bit more insight about me when reading future blogs? I haven't made a plan or anything about what I'm going to write next, but I think this is all just basic information that you all should know about me :)
I think, for someone 21 years old, I am still quite naive. Perhaps that seems young to some of you and old to some others, but to me, I feel like this is an age of distinction. This is the time when you discover most about yourself, what you're capable of doing, your limits, how your personality is like. Recently, I have discovered that I am naive. I said naive not innocent because I think I there is a huge difference. Innocent refers to when you don't know about the bad things in life and think you live in la-la land. But naive, I think, is when you know about all the bad things in life and STILL believe in la-la land. So I think that's me. I am aware of all the bad things going on around me, bad possibilities, etc. but I still believe the best in everyone and thus choose to ignore all the whistles/bells/warnings that usually goes off when you are about to encounter a dangerous situation. I guess that makes me a hopeless romantic... wishing for a fairy tale ending wherever I go. But then again, that's just how I've always been, and maybe it can be taken as both a good and bad thing. But I believe the best in everyone and that, if given the chance (and a bit of nudging), they will choose the right thing.
Also, I feel quite lucky and blessed that I have such an awesome support group of friends. Actually my closest friends aren't even the ones who are physically near me. Of course I have close friends at home that I can trust and rely on, but the majority of my best friends all live either in a different country or province. This realization dawned on me yesterday that I have always had internet friends haha. But of course I didn't meet them online. I met them somewhere else, we clicked, and we just happen to live very very far away from each other =( But I have to say that I am quite proud of all of us that we were able to keep our friendship going and can still say that we are like best friends even after not seeing each other for almost 4 years! Recently, as you all know I went to Hong Kong and there I made another incredible set of friends. After living together for 4 months, they are almost like family now. We talk with each other still everyday and I hope that our friendship can stand the test of time (and distance). Really, the best experience in Hong Kong was being able to experience it all with such great people from all over the world! Actually, if you like to read about cars, or food, or see and read about our experiences in Hong Kong, you can go to one of my friend's blog. He's a much more eloquent writer than I am and takes very nice pictures too!
Lastly, I have realized that my life has always been like some kind of drama. This has been happening pretty much all my life. I thought that now that I am older and about to start career phase of my life, this was over but I guess I was wrong, things that happen to me I think are a at one degree higher than what happens to everyone else. I am not trying to brag; I am merely saying that even the normal things that happen to me somehow have an added twist to it that makes life so much more.....interesting.
Aside from all of the above, I am extremely spontaneous (maybe this is an adverse affect of being a "stick up the @ss" planner all this time). I like to make split second decisions and just act on my feelings. Maybe this is why my life is so dramatic haha... I don't always think things through. But I live on the principle that if you never try, you'll never know. And then you'll regret. So from now on, this is what I am going to do and live life to the fullest. Of course it also helps that you're doing this with your friends so you have some kind of support if your plans end up being bad. Or to tell you that your plan is bad to begin with. Point being is, seize all opportunities, but never do anything rash, especially when you are emotional. Then that could lead to some really nasty situations.
Ok, that's all I can think of for now. Today I'll be going to Waterloo to pick up my sister for the reading week! Yay to no classes for a week! But of course I have about all of my readings to do + extreme job hunting so that will be fun.
Be expecting more posts from me next week! Haha I tend to procrastinate when I am busy, so actually, I post more things when I have a ton of stuff to do.
