So what?!

Yea, so what if I do not know how to sew and cook. So what? It's not a big deal. I hate the look that everyone gives when they find this out. Does not knowing how to cook or sew make me any less of a girl?

"Didn't your mother or school teach you how to sew & cook?"
Well, sorry to dissapoint you but my mother didn't have time to teach me & I never really paid attention to any of my home economics classes.(I normally just failed them) The basic of my cooking is making an omelette. But for sewing, I know nothing.

People look at me in disbelief...(even some of friends look at me this way.)
You have to learn it, they say. I normally nod my head & pretend to agree BUT what if I do not want to learn it. Is that so wrong??

How will you survive?
Well, I will...I just will. You don't need to care.

I was brought up by working parents. During my younger years, I was taken care by a nanny. And her job was just to make sure I eat and do my homework. No, don't give me that sad pitiful look. Guess what, I'm fine being brought up this way. Sure, I used to be jealous of kids whose mums are housewives BUT if my mum is a housewife, my life would be quite boring. My mum will make sure I study, that means I won't get to watch TV or go online.

Eventhough, my parents aren't around during the weekdays. They would be around during the weekends to make up for all that lost time. We would always go out & enjoy ourselves. But as I grew up, we just stayed home. Even so, we would spend our weekends catching up with each other.

By being brought this way, I was taught to be independent. I was taught to handle my own issues. I was taught to speak my mind out, to have opinions. Yea, I wasn't those kids who went crying to their mother for a bruised thumb. And yup, I was one of those kids who talked alot in class, sometimes, disagreeing with what the teacher is saying. So yea, teachers thought that I was damn troublesome & annoying.

Well, I seen my parents bringing their paperwork home before. I used to just sit right next to them and watch them. They were so busy...and it amazes me how focus they were in their job.
So yea, I put importance in career. When I was younger, I knew that I want to be a working busy person when I grow up. It looks like so much FUN!
Plus haven't you heard that "To retire is to expire."? Yea, I rather work than to retire. And guess what, those are my parents plans too.

And for your info, I do not have rich parents. My parents are just hardworking people who wanted to make a better life for their children.

And even until today, I still want to be a successful business person. So what if I know more about event management and journalism than I know about cooking and sewing. So what?!

BTW, I just want everyone to know that having working parents isn't wrong or pitiful. Just because my parents are always working, does not make them bad parents. Children of working parents sometimes aren't troubled but instead we're level headed, mature people. So quit assuming that working parents are wrong and kids of working parents needs pity and proper parents.

I'm tired of people telling what I should be. I'm tired of people telling my parents how to educate their children. I'm tired of all of this shit!

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.

But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
