“A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
As cliché as this might sound, life is like a box. People always tend to say this when one is asked to define life for the very reason it is true. No one knows what a box really has unless we open it. And once we do open it, what it holds is not what we always expect.
If life can be compared to a box, shouldn’t be a person be compared to it too? I mean, stereotypes aside, we can never tell what a person truly is unless we get to know that certain person. Knowing a person completely does not happen in seconds nor minutes. To know a person, one must do so for months, let alone, years. With knowing comes with trust, and with trust comes openness. It is such a complicated process but the deal you get is inevitably worth it.
It is hard to know a person and it is also hard for a person to let you know him/her. This is why I created this blog. Well, at least it’s one of the reasons why I did create this blog. I want people to know me. I know what I’m doing is unconventional because openness comes in two ways. To let a person get to know you, you must also get to know the person. But, I’m putting (almost) everything on the line. I will let you, my readers, get to know who I am without me knowing you guys completely. But I am hoping that sooner or later, with the small pieces you may leave for me, may it be through comments, suggestions, likes or any other feedback (oh! and even by following me which is HIGHLY recommended!!!), I will be able to become acquainted with each of you.
This blog will be about anything under the sun, as Sir Joscar, my English professor, would put it. Everything will be so random! I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and of course, if you want, I will also read yours! And oh! Before I forget, the Random Fact section of my blog will contain some bits and pieces of random facts about me while the Note to Self section will contain picture quotations that I just want to share with all of you. Enjoy! :)
With much love,
The OC ♥
