My childhood wasn’t spectacular. I was surrounded with kids from different backgrounds. They had ambitions, big and small; some of them equipped with families and resources to help them get the nicest school supplies and pay for the best schools. I don’t know everyone’s story, clearly, but I’ve always wondered what it would have been like having everything. Who would I have turned out to be if I had access to all the things I wanted while still young? Where in the world would I have ended up?
I’m in a relationship.
But it hasn’t always been that way.
When I was in college, I took up a higher psychology course for the mere purpose of filling in my required units for graduation. It was an innocent 3 hours a week that I did not expect to change the way I see the world.
Video games taught me that challenges will always come your way, and it’s easier to overcome these challenges if you just accept that you’re gonna have to face them sooner or later.
My friend, Shannen is an enthusiast of Korean pop culture. In a less time-constrained photowalk with her, she sported some autumn-inspired pieces (with some thoughts of her ‘oppas’) and something not all of us petite girls can rock — an Indonesian batik polo shirt.
