I wasn't sure what I was expecting out of this, either. I mean, I have the greatest friends in the world and I surround myself with amazing and inspiring people - be it in the real world or in the online community. But the cynic and paranoid android in me worried that things might not turn out the way I wanted. After all, you can't please everybody.
With the contest deadline looming, I checked my Facebook post only to find around 25 'likes' but zero comments. I was flabbergasted, and a bit disheartened. "Whatever happened to my friends?! My best friend, even???", I wondered. I was ready to cry at this point, when all of a sudden, one of my longtime friends AND my son's godmother asked where she should post her comment. With a glimmer of hope (lol), I asked her to just leave a comment on the photo as I will collaborate all the comments into one blog entry.
Just then, the comments swarmed one by one. From my grade school friends, high school clique, college batchmates, fellow Kpop fangirls, fellow bloggers, and the most astounding of all - from the Directress of my son's school. (Yes, she reads my blog! I am truly, truly humbled!)
Kuni, my brother from another mother (lol, we're that close since we practically grew up together), cracked me up with his comment:
Haha, ok I didn't read the instructions (if this was an exam, I've already flunked!). 3 sentences hmm... Hardworking, of course! Anybody who has tried taking care of an active little kid will know why. Smart and savvy. Been her friend since high school, trust me, you can't put one over this girl! Strong-willed. Being apart from one's spouse for so long is difficult enough, the fact that they're in love makes it even more so. Goodluck Sis!
Abegail, a former classmate and fellow UP alumni, made me blush with what she said:
