“What should I blog about? I’ll let you choose the topic…”
A simple question I asked my best friend Rebekah and she quickly responded with a lovely image.
Rebekah thinks I should talk about my need for attention. Which I think she’s being a bit excessive because there’s no way I’m that needy.
I like to think I’m an okay person in the attention department. Sometimes I just hate silence. Unfortunately being in tech the majority of individuals are introverted so that just means I have to talk more.
Maybe I’ve been coming off the wrong way every time I reach out to Rebekah? I think I just need avoid doing super flamboyant things so it stops coming off as a cry for attention.
One can easily just say, “that’s just Allan’s personality, that’s how he is.” Although there is one time that I took a personality test and it said that I got offended easy, which I was extremely offended by. How dare this personality test assume it knows me.
Knowing someone can really help explain a lot of their behaviors. I try my hardest not to judge a book by its cover and I hope people take the time & effort to get to know me. Maybe they’ll like me and be a cool person to hang out with outside of work? Who knows!
This is the part of the blog post where I go off on an unrelated rant. Sort of unrelated but my last sentence in the last column made me think of this.
There’s one quote that has stuck by me a lot as a kid and it’s this wonderful saying by good ol’ Meowth.
“We do have a lot in common.
The same air, the same Earth, the same sky.
Maybe if we started looking at
what’s the same instead of
always looking at what’s different,
…well, who knows?”
– Meowth (Pokémon: the first movie)
At the end of the day we all want the same thing. Whether it’s through physical contact or just having someone there to be supportive of you, we all just want to love and be loved.
