So Far Away

19Jul11

Let’s face it, I’m not the most perfect person out there and neither are you. I’ve been through a lot, major downs and some minor ups. I’m the kind of guy that procrastinates till the very end, the kind of guy that ditches his friends to spend time with his girlfriend, I’m not proud of that but I sure am not hiding those facts. I’ve graduated but I still don’t know where my career is taking me, I’m indecisive, naive and sometimes pretentious but I don’t care. When you get to see the ugly inside a person you’d be seeing all of him, every cell.

Those post-graduate dreams you have are definitely achievable but sometimes are not enough. Corporate slave? that doesn’t cut it for me. The words “I want to work” aren’t enough. I’d rather wake up in the morning saying, ” I want to be great”. I’d rather be poor, unemployed and happy than having money, a job and not being motivated. No matter what, since I am super naive I’d rather live out my dreams than climb that social status chain. Reality bites your soul big time.

I don’t want the latest tech, I don’t care if you’re constantly going out and socializing. There’s plenty of time for that when all my dreams come true. I want to be pressured, I want to be challenged and all that culminating to my own greatness.

I am ‘that’ person, the douche, the dreamer, the commoner. I am not as special as a governor’s son, I am not as special as a star athlete. I’m this one person who strives to be better any way he cans. I’m not proud of the mistakes, I’m not proud of my laziness, the only thing I’m good at is keeping this blog up all these years. I want to be amazing, I want that opportunity to help me be amazing. I don’t want to stop dreaming, I don’t want reality to wake me up telling me otherwise.
