A Brand New You, Effective Tomorrow

If I were to become anyone in the world I wish, I would choose to be me.

Yes, despite having the choice to be anyone in the world, I would be myself, because I know there’s a long road ahead. There’s a lot ahead that I’m curious about, to see how things will turn out.

I pondered my other options: having the programming genius of Bill Gates would be awesome, but then I wouldn’t enjoy the process of getting there in the first place (the so-called “10,000 hour rule”). Or having the wisdom and ethics of Mahatma Gandhi would be great, except that I would rather have such moral values and ethics be shaped by my own experiences.

I’ve only lived out 20 years of my life so far. There’s a lot to look out for. And I can’t wait. It’s just the beginning. It’s also the beginning of a new year. Happy New Year dear readers!
