After considering so many things, I finally let my crazy side dictate my practical side and resigned from my full-time job. I firmly told my boss that I decided to take a chance in life and start my own online business. To be more graphic on what I’m feeling now, see below photos.
I remember when I was just this chubby little kid with just one sweet friend in the corner of the classroom. I always had my head down, too shy to say hi to my crush or to simply talk to my classmates while they colored in groups for our art assignment. I was freakishly scared of my teachers that one time I poo-pooed inside the classroom much to my unlucky seat mate’s uniform.
Life was simple, yet I really felt that I needed to have a break through of some sort. Even though I was able to enter contests and win some of them, I was still this uberly silent kid with her own world.
You could imagine the relief/tension that I felt when my parents announced that we will be moving from Manila to Quezon City. It was a BIG chance to turn on a new leaf, to introduce and invent a new me to other kids. I was nervous but at the same time I had no choice but to bite the opportunity, close my eyes and just go for it.
That feeling is quite similar to what I’m feeling now. Please vote for me for the Big Blog Exchange Competition. You can vote just by clicking on my site’s sidebar and confirming with your email address. If ever I get to be one of the finalists, I could get to swap lives with other people of other countries. Cross-fingers.
Also, if you felt that this post was a cliff-hanger, no worries. I plan to post a series of memoir posts of my childhood, teenager, and adult years in this blog.
Oh those days…when I was just crazy in love with Japanese anime.
Memorizing those catchy opening and closing songs. Downloading those anime wallpapers for almost 30 minutes with the state-of-art internet connection using our blocky, white computers. Saving my image collection in those multiple square floppy disks in colorful order (back then the memory was just in megabytes)
Shrieking with unexplainable joy when Sailormoon, Ghostfighter, Fushigi Yuugi, Cardcaptor Sakura, Flame of Recca, Neon Evangelion, Samurai X, Fruit Basket, Ouran High School Host Club etcetera etcetera was playing on the television. When I wasn’t satisfied with the last episode, I wrote fanfiction. I remember even having crushes on some of the male characters.
I was a full-blown anime freak. I laughed, I cried and I shouted my magical transformation spell with them. It was really fun being a child of the 1990s. ZF.
