The threads of fate?



Sometimes, it's hard not to believe that each of us have own fate.

Just only months ago, I was dead set on a goal. It was either I achieve that goal or I just forget it. I didn't have other plans. It was the goal or I don't do it at all.

But then, we are only human. We can plan but just because we plan doesn't mean it will work out the way we want it to be.

And as all things, my plan began to unravel. Sometimes , things worked out and sometimes, it didn't. But at the end of the day, the goal that I wanted so much began to be unpractical under my current circumstances.

Then, at certain times, it felt like my plan began to crumble and I felt absolutely sad.



It took a while but I had to accept that the goal I wanted so much had a high chance of not happening. 
I had to tell myself that it didn't matter and that was really hard.

But now, that I have accepted the possible realities, other things begin to pop up.
A reality that was so much more practical and desirable.

And then, suddenly, my old goal had a tiny revival. It suddenly became possible. The chances are slim but nonetheless, it could be possible.

So now, I'm stuck between a practical reality and the old goal.

Both are very tempting and beautiful. Each have their advantages and disadvantages. 

Then again, I know that my old goal may not happen but this new slim chance has given me hope. 
I'm afraid that this time, I may not be able to let this go. I will not be able to accept the truth. A huge part of me wants to just hold on and never let go. 




This old goal isn't exactly important nor does it matter now. But it is just that this is what I wanted ever since I was young and letting go of this makes me feel sad as this is what I have held on since I was young.

But this makes me feel that there is fate because no matter what choice I thought wasn't possible can become possible, later on.
It feels like there's fate because it feels like that path is meant for you and thus, you will walk it sooner or later.

Just like when I was 16, I entered the class that had Economics subject but I never thought I would want to study it as a degree. It wasn't in my choice. Then, as time passes, now, I might be doing it as a degree.
It's fate sometimes.

But then again, as much as there is fate. Sometimes, we make our own fate.

As for me right now, I am still undecided if I should study Economics or Psychology for my degree and I'm hoping for a scholarship because I don't want to spend my parents money. I have been using way too much of their money.

But no matter what happens, it will be alright.

We should just be happy.

True. Just hold on to what you still want to hold on, let go when you feel like letting go. Accept it when you are ready to, dont accept it if you are not ready to. I'm sure you can get scholarship and a good course. In the end, I believe things will turn out in a good way, we just have to wait. Or even if they don't turn out in a good way, that doesn't mean they will turn out to be bad either.

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…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen

Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
