Last week or so I went to get Chinese with Betsy and I got two fortunes that I keep thinking about:
1. “You enjoy playing to a crowd”–I do enjoy playing to a crowd. If you ever want to hear a funny story told from an amazing person that’s me. I love building the story to the punch line and if my friends and family are right I’m great at it. There are some people that can’t tell a story: they get really excited about the end and rush towards it and forget all about building the story.
I used to write fiction all the time as kid. I even have some awards and some things were published in a school publication. I loved writing and making up stories. I have a wonderful imagination. My mom tells stories of all the fun I used to have with my imaginary friends. I usually thought about inventing people to be part of my surroundings. So in my writing I am great at presenting a situation I have lived in. Writing about the people I see and making them become characters I might be interested in knowing.
I like describing people’s qualities and making them explosive on a page. I can tell a story like none other but writing one is a bit more difficult. Perhaps this week I will devote a few hours to trying to write a story that is as much fun as telling one.
I do love playing to a crowd.
2. “You will gain admiration from your peers”: this one I am not so sure about but I can always hope it comes true. I wrote a blog a week ago about my reunion. I don’t care if I gain adimiration from people from high school because I really don’t consider them my peers anymore. I do care about adimiration from the people I go to graduate school with. They are my peers. Their opinon matters most to me because they know me.
I hope one day to gain admiration from my peers
