Would you believe that it has taken me 31 years to say that?
Most of those years have been taken up with saying other things. No, I’m not anti-social. No, I’m not shy. No, it’s not that I hate people, or that I hate you, or that I’m a badly brought up Awkward Annie.

“One cup of food a day changes Fabian’s life completely. But this morning, about a billion people on Earth — or one out of every seven — woke up and didn’t even know how to fill this cup. One out of every seven people.” — Josette Sheeran
“It is okay to be an outsider, a recent arrival, new on the scene — and not just okay, but something to be thankful for. … Because being an insider can so easily mean collapsing the horizons, can so easily mean accepting the presumptions of your province.” (Tan Le)
I’m now an outsider, a recent arrival, new on the scene. Things are just too much to catch up on soon, but I know that I have tried so hard to make my way to here so I have no choice but have to stretch myself and prove that I can make it and I’m worth it. I keep telling myself that rarely one can have such an wonderful opportunity that’s surely gonna change his life for a better way. Now that it has come to me! Waste it or maximise it… I go for the latter.
