My mini autobiography

Several days ago, I turned 32 and I feel like it’s time for another reflective post.

I have the tendency to think a lot; about my past, present and future. I think about my past mistakes, the choices I’ve made, and what I look forward to. I think about my dreams, goals, and purpose.

I think about why I do what I do, and why I am the way I am.

I think about how I can achieve what I want, faster.

I think about how I can make a lasting, positive impact.

I want to do so much.

It may sound crazy, but I want to be a legacy.

You may ask, how? By doing what?

I think, by using my words to impact others.

I want you to feel better, happier, more empowered after reading my blog posts and translations.

I want to share my experience and advice, and you to benefit from it. Knowing that I have the power to change someone’s behaviour makes me feel good.

I’ve come to realize that I need to live a life with meaning to be happy. For the first 23 years of my life, I basically followed exactly what my father had wanted me to do.

As a child, my only goal was to get good grades so I could get into university and then get a good, stable job.

I needed good grades. I was a “good” student, but at the same time, I wasn’t. I mean, I showed up to class and did all my homework. I tried to study and do well, but half the time I was daydreaming because it was so damn boring.

I tried to retain as much as I could, but I’m just not very academic. At least, it’s not easy for me. I have a slow brain, so it takes me a long time to understand something.

I had friends who could seamlessly get 90s without trying, while here I was, working hard and struggling to get an 80. So sad.

I knew school wasn’t really for me, but I still tried. In fact, I even got an award for perfect attendance. LOL, so lame. Who gives an award for that??? Continue reading “My mini autobiography”

Personal thoughts

For this Monday, I’m going to share some of my personal thoughts. Please do not take it personally because it is how I feel. By no means am I trying to target anyone.

First of all, my blog has surpassed 55000 views!!! This is amazing to me, because if it weren’t for the translations, I would have not have achieved this until many years down the road.

Before translating, I would get about a hundred views a week. Now, I get hundreds of views per day.

Although most people come for the translation and they don’t give a shit about me, it is still nice that they want to continue reading my translations.

It pushes me to want to be better.

My goal is to get more views. (That’s not my only goal, but I’m only talking about blog related things right now.)

Why?

Quote Challenge 2/3

Tame quote

This is my second post for the quote challenge. You can read part one here.

This is a quote from “The Little Prince”.

Tame quote 2

I really like this quote because it is so simple, yet deep. In life, there are a lot of things that seem to be ordinary at first glance. Humans are everywhere. Cars. Animals. You get the point.

So what makes something special? Does it even matter if one of us were suddenly to disappear? Would anyone notice?

Yes. For those who have “established ties” with you, they would.

Getting Personal

I’m not sure if you have noticed, but recently I have been getting more personal with my readers. In the past, I would pick a certain topic and then write about it. (Ex. Social AnxietyFearAttention, and so on).

But these days, I have been sharing more about myself (10 Facts About MyselfReflection,Conversation Tips *personal experience*)

The Blogger Recognition Award

bloggerrecognitionaward

Thank you so much to Shannon (Forevershannon) who recently nominated me for my first virtual award ever (The Blogger Recognition Award)! Please take some time to check out her amazing blog!! She is only 14 but her posts are so inspirational and touches me from the bottom of my heart. ❤

Here’s a quick summary of the rules: 1) write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips, 2) nominate some of your fellow bloggers, and 3) comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

I started blogging because my friend Karen suggested that I should share my thoughts with the world. She thought I had a lot of good content/ideas and blogging would help me grow as well. At first, I was a bit hesitant because I didn’t know whether blogging was something I wanted to start. I’ve never had a strong desire to write and I didn’t think this was something I would commit to. Nonetheless, I decided there was no harm in trying, so I posted my first blog post on February of 2014.
