There's a story at the bottom of this bottle and I'm the pen

I've been thinking about this for awhile. You know how some people have huge ambitions, like being CEO of a big company one day, or traveling all over the world, or discovering a cure for cancer. They say to themselves and other people 'One Day, That'll Be Me.' Some people are SO sure that their future lies among fame and glory and wealth.

I know it isn't what people expect of me, or what my family wants of me, but to me, I don't want to chase the big things. I would love to make a difference in the world but having these high positions is just too far and too hard to fathom. I don't think I have it in me. For now at least.

Maybe if I work slowly, at my own snail pace, I'd get there eventually. But to have to actually go into the working world with a goal as lofty as the top of the pyramid, all it's going to do is phase me and make my heart aflutter. No, I'm starting small. I'm going to enjoy being a minion, graduating slowly up the ladder rungs until I finally deserve being there. And since working hard isn't one of my natural traits, its going to take longer than usual. :P

Yes, I'm aware I'm disappointing some of you, but this is my choice. I don't think I'm capable of sweating bullets and making huge leaps and impressing people in the real world. Maybe I'm not sure what graduating in Biotech will lead to. Maybe I'd rather travel in search of cupcakes and write about them on alternate days. Maybe I'd rather build my own magazine empire with a bunch of people while being a soccer mom. Maybe I just want to collect samples for my boss in Costa Rica.

I am now thinking of Ethan and Kenji. God. That was 6 years ago! *embarased*
They're fictional by the way.

Therapeutic Ramblings
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.
All wrapped up in a pretty package that resembles the Cookie Monster.
Also self proclaimed Princess of Le Cupcake Kingdom

Floats my Boat
People I love. Music. Sweet treats. Singing animals. Movies. Princes. Books. Fables. Hindustan Heroes.

Sinks my Ship
Rude people working in hospitality and sales. Long queues. Idiots CUTTING long queues. People who Patronise.

Wishlist
To finally figure out what I'm meant to do. To travel the world. To eat anything without gaining ungodly amounts of weight. To get my happily ever after. :)
