A story about a girl next door
Hi my name is Anna, I know it’s rather late for me to make an introduction post. But better late than never, right? So here goes.
Let me begin by giving you some hints about my traits, likes, dislikes.. well that sort of stuffs. By knowing these facts, I hope it will enable all readers (if any.. What a cynical! Ooh, trait one!) to better decide about whether they should continue reading this bizarre post. First of all, I’m a total girl next door. You know, that girl with average look, average amount of heart breaks, average intelligence just enough to get me into one of the most highly known public university and averagely (is this even a word?) survived. Second of all, this blog is my go to place to write random things and reblog stuffs i love. Thirdly, just like most human in there 20s, I’ve managed to get through several drastic ups and downs, in my case these happened intensely through high school and college. Typical.
Before I go further.. This is trait number 2! I am curious and analytical, those who knows me best often find me speculating about anything from whatever source. Today I contemplated about things that could possibly push any average into something extraordinary. Cliche. My mother used to always tell me that those who grow up in unstable circumstances (could be that he or she has lost their parents, lack of financial resources, has physical disabilities etc.) would most likely to gain success rather than those who grow up in a stable state of being. I spent countless hours trying to prove this stereotype wrong. Today I stumbled upon a very interesting blog post. This was made by fellow self-proclaimed girl next door, she’s also about my age, only she had more achievements and life fulfillments. Her circumstance resembles my mother’s stereotype. And so, her post inspired me to write this. I am too tired to go detail about the process. But let’s just say that today, I had a revelation. I was wrong about something, while it is true that one’s limitation may push him or her to thrive, those who live in stable environment or wealth have their own push factor too. My challenge isn’t to prove my mom wrong. My challenge is to constantly dare myself to level up and get out of my comfort zone.
Considering my inconsistency in writing this, it’s also safe to say that I have wide array of interests, a tad bit unfocused at night and easily bored. Thank you. And good night.
