Quoting Haruki Murakami in Sputnik Sweetheart, I am always tripped up by the eternal “Who am I?” paradox but the funny thing is that no one would know me as well as me.
But, this is what I know about myself so far – I’m a lover and fighter. I fight for the things I love and believe in. I’m extremely strong-willed and am an introvert. Most of the time, people perceive me as someone who doesn’t like to talk a lot in real life, but the truth is – I just don’t talk when it’s unnecessary. I have a tendency to distant myself from people (no reason at all, actually) and I take time to warm up to people. I would say I can be really picky with my friends.
I have a hard time forgiving people and also have a hard time forgetting. I am governed by my family and my ambition. I will go all out for my ambition and dreams but I have an escapist streak in me but it’s one of the things that makes me, me.
I like a lot of things but I love very little things. Most of the time, I either hate something or love something, there’s no middle ground.
I hate to display mushy feelings and appear weak, so most of the time, I put up a stoic front. I have a clear things of how I want things to be, so I can perceived as ruthless, critical, unyielding and pretty inflexible in my ways and thinking. I like to think of myself as an enigma, but I think I’m relatively easy to figure out. If there is a word that can sum me up, that word would be contradictions.
Sometimes, I think too much, feel too much and do everything in excess. I hate to depend on people, though I’m not too independent myself.
I aspire to be an copywriter or art director and satisfy my wanderlust.
Some of the things I do in my free time are reading books/manga/graphic novels, watching tv shows/anime, listening to music and finding out new music to listen to, lazing around, doodling and sketching, hanging out with my friends at isolated cafes, graphic designing (in my own terms), being inspired, coming up with interesting storylines to accompany the music I’m listening to and write (especially sad, angsty, melancholic stories with a happy twist)..
