A lovely post from the most lovely friend!
What about a Sulz-centric post from another viewpoint?
(Okay, I am spoofing her style of passing off a question as a blog post title, but I guess I failed miserably.)
So, Sulz. I know this girl from what, 2 years ago? I remember that I approached her first, commenting something along the lines of writing a similar essay that she did for History of English (or something along those lines). And it all started from there. I became a regular reader, and have been starting to poke and prod this blogger ever since.
From my viewpoint, Sulz gives herself too little credit (and I assume everyone will agree on this.) But the good thing is, I think she’s grown over the years I know her, and she seems much more certain of herself now. Less self-battering, more fun stuff like wanting a boyfriend (heh) and taking pictures. And this trip to Macau; I might be bold to suggest that it’s almost a coming-of-age trip for her. First time so far from home, she’s got to have to leave her comfort zone, and explore the big world out there. Who knows, we might see a whole new Sulz after her trip. 🙂
Here I leave her a quote (that’s on a postcard above my desk):
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplisment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
I hope that Sulz can truly find herself (if she hasn’t yet), and live for herself! While it may be socially polite to adhere to standards and rules set by others, but remember, you always hold the choice to make yourself happy. 🙂
You didn’t fail spoofing, okay, that was something I would’ve written! And it was me who stumbled upon your blog first, you wrote something about backpacking around Europe. Hah, see my incredible memory! 😀 Hmm, you make a good point. Maybe I don’t have to find myself there, but rather nurture the hidden parts of me into blossoming! 🙂
