This is who I am. Is that so hard to accept?

I don’t kill, I don’t hurt others, I may not like being in crowds, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love people. I love animals, I love to walk, I love to dream, I love to write, I love to read, I love to stay still. I’m not a doctor, I’m not a CEO, I’m not a lawyer, I’m not an Engineer. I’m an artist, and that’s who I am. Is that so hard to accept? 

“You should be a CEO. You should be a lawyer. You should be a private investigator.”

“You should be,” is what I’ve heard so many times. But, how about who I want to be? Why can’t some people accept who I really am? If I’m not self-destructing or hurting others, if what I do makes me happy, why can’t they accept it? I’m not going to succumb to peer pressure and follow what others think I should do. I never have and I don’t plan to do it any time for the rest of my life. I’m going to follow my dreams and leave the legacy I was born to pass on. Money isn’t everything. Money isn’t going to buy me immortality, but my dreams are going to grant me everlasting happiness. Whenever my time comes, I want to close my eyes and smile knowing I achieved my happiness and inspired others. 

I have two choices, let others rule my life and become the woman I shouldn’t be, or realize my dreams and become the woman I was born to be. I choose the latter.

What did you want to be when you were a kid?

One of the kids I used to babysit told me one day he wanted to be a hockey player (Go Canucks!) and a sushi chef. I told him If he ever became a famous Vancouver Canucks hockey player (or Montreal Canadiens), he needed to make sure I got VIP tickets to all of his games :D. I may have also told him I’d wear a t-shirt with his baby picture on it :p and the following text: “=his name= ‘s biggest fan since diapers”. Honestly, I don’t think he’d mind if I did that. I’m the only one (besides his parents) who can hug him in public; he’s 8 years old.

I wanted to be so many things when I was a kid:

-Doctor: because removing a splinter from my sister’s foot would automatically make me one

-Marine Biologist: I loved looking at the water and sea creatures. Oddly enough, I didn’t like to swim.

-Astronaut: I wanted to meet aliens. That’s it.

-Basketball player: I played basketball until High School, and I even watched games on TV. I was a fan of the Sacramento Kings during that phase (the time where I lived in the U.S.). I was 5’2” then.

Chef: I wanted to become a pastry chef, only pastry because I didn’t like seafood and didn’t want to be forced to eat it :p. Then I got a burn and became a chicken.

-Animator: I went to college for 3D Animation & Modeling. This was my second career choice. My first one was Writing. No regrets, but the former wasn’t my true passion and call.

I think that covers everything, but if I remember more, I’ll share later :p. How about YOU?
