What do I really want to be?
I want to be successful, I want to prove others wrong. I see myself making a mark on this word, being stopped on the street for a picture or being recognized at the mall. I want to be known as someone.
Who is that someone?
That someone is Janessa. She used her little space on the internet to change the world. She showed what the real world looks like, helped her fellow young adults find their place in the world. She was true to herself as she was knowing herself, because at the age of twenty, people don’t know themselves yet. Janessa is a woman of survival, and for standing for what she believes in. She is a modern Filipina, with battle scars and delicadeza. She was never perfect, although for years she wanted to be, aimed to be, almost died to be. She is a gamechanger. She showed the world why Rizal deemed the young as the future. She proved that you can turn your life around even if it felt you can’t. That you can breathe life into dead ideas and turn them into reality. That it’s never too late to start.
This idea of blogging my life is not a new idea, I’ve had this idea floating around for over five years. Yet, I didn’t have the patience, the time, the motivation to do so. Now I have all of those, except for the resources. I pride myself in being resourceful, and so that’s not an issue at all. All I need right now is diligence with whatever I am starting right now. I seriously don’t know where this is taking me, but I sure hope it will be something that I can look back on when I’m older. I hope that this will serve as a time capsule of sorts, wherein, when the time comes that I want to relive my life as someone who’s still finding my place in this world, I can. I can look back, see how I pushed and pursued my goals until the day I can finally say, “I made it.”.
Whoop. Seems like a wonderful piece of introduction. I want to read through it, but I won’t, I’ll leave it as is, grammar mistakes and all. I wrote that straight in less than an hour after watching The Social Network, and I felt so inspired I wrote my first ever blog post. Let’s see how this goes, fellas, and hopefully you’ll be here till the very end. Now time to get ready for the mandatory orientation at 6.
