In August 2014, my dad challenged me to bungee jump. He had already spent the $100, I could not possibly let it go to waste.
If you can bungee jump, you can do anything!
—Me, plunging towards the Nanaimo River
Who knew the jump would change my life. Subconsciously, this message has wormed itself into my everyday actions. I got into a challenging academic program, graduated; ran for student council, got elected; won an award from the same school that waitlisted me up until course registration.
But there’s one fear I haven’t overcome. I’m very scared of expressing my opinions and thoughts. The fear of humiliation, of no one caring, of being too boring, has made me an excellent listener and a terrible speaker.
So this blog is one step towards being a more expressive and lively person. 🙂
