I am a silent and boring person. I know some of you will not agree with me because I talk a lot in my blog. Added to it the fact that I am a part time educator. How come? Who would ever thought that teachers are quiet and shy persons? If we meet in person, you will surely find me shy and quiet. I admit I wasn't born with excellent interpersonal skills. To some extent, this even made me earn a negative reputation from a few cousins and relatives. Well this is what I have to say, I may not interact that much in person but that doesn't give other people enough reasons to criticize me. My few close friends can prove that I am not after all the worst person in the heads of some narrow-minded people.
Knowing I have this weakness, I avoided careers that require a lot of talking and socializing. This could also explain why I fell in love with writing. I also ventured to a full time job that doesn't require much interaction with other people. I spend the day in front of my computer reviewing policies, conducting some statistical analysis and writing technical reports.
If I would be given the chance to switch or try another person's life, I wanted to be in the shoes of someone who appears to be my complete opposite. For at least a day, I wanted to experience a "loud" and highly interactive career. Sorry for the lack of term ;-) The life of a famous celebrity, talk show host, or perhaps a journalist. I'm just curious how it feels when everyone in the country equally knows your name and half of your life, meeting countless number of people, thousands of acquaintances and friends and seeing different places. If given the chance I wanted to see for myself how some people find happiness in the life I never imagined to have.
