Believe

You know those geeks with glasses and braces or those nerds who hang out at the library? Where do they end up? They end up being the millionaires. They end up at the peak of the tower, they end up succeeding in life. I still believe in underdogs, underdogs always win. I am an underdog myself and I quite like it.

Yes, I am one of those nerds/geeks. I had braces from Grade 3 until Grade 7. I started wearing glasses when I turned sixteen, oh what a great Sweet Sixteen surprise – NOT. I do find comfort in being surrounded by books – pages and pages of marvellous out of this world extraordinary ideas, characters, stories. They live and breathe in your imagination. They live through you and within you. Once you’ve encountered them, you become inseparable and you can never look at something – even just one thing – the same way that you did before.

Oddly enough, anyone can write. Just get a pen and a paper. Or if you’re lazy, like most of us 21st generation kids, you sit on the most comfortable chair that you can find in your house and start typing on your computer, laptop, iPad, iPod or iPhone. What else did I miss? I prefer using the iPen by the way; I guess I’m traditional and conservative in that sense, just my opinion.

It’s raining. It’s pouring. You know what I love to do at times like these? I read. Or write. Or both. Most of the time, in the library at school. I don’t mind being a loner. Yes, that is one more nerdy quality about me. I’m happy being alone. I’m not lonely, just alone. I love silence, it calms my mind and my soul and gives me peace.

Geeks are fearful too. I personally have a lot of fears. Too many to mention. I also fear having a fear and being fearful. When you’re scared, amazing things happen. It blows your mind and takes your breath away. That’s why we do everything at the last minute. We thrive, we conquer our fear and survive.

  1. This made me smile. It’s so true. I often see myself that way but I always stand by what my favorite singer Ed Sheeran said, “Success is the best revenge for anything.” 🙂 Wonderful blog, BTW.

    1. Thank you so much, your comment made me smile 🙂 Yes, I agree with Ed Sheeran – a wonderful singer too! I really appreciate your comment and the compliment.. you have such a cute blog and an authentic voice! 😉

      1. Ah cool!! I’m more interested in creative nonfiction / feature articles. Out of curiosity, which part of the world do you live in? It still fascinates me how people from everywhere can connect somehow!!

      2. You’re a very good one. You would have a wonderful job as a feature writer someday! Ah, your posts are interesting. I’m from the Philippines. 🙂

      3. You are too too kind 🙂 It really means a lot to me 😀
        That’s crazy. I grew up in the Philippines! Spent a year in Canada and then moved to Australia almost three years ago. Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog!
        Fluent ako sa Tagalog 😉 I just don’t write in it anymore – haven’t written anything in Filipino for years.. quite weird! (I still can but I know it will end up Taglish.)

      4. AHHH! COOL! 😀 I also write in Tagalog but it ends up being too deep. Hahaha! It’s a really small world! It’s nice to meet an awesome person like you!

      5. Small world, indeed 😀
        Being deep is not a negative thing at all… I reckon you should continue writing pieces in Tagalog ’cause sometimes there are things best expressed in Filipino 🙂 Same here love, a pleasure to meet you! x
