DavidArchuleta on The Early Show
The reason I posted this is because it shows a clip of little David back when he won in the Star Search singing competition. You can see that the way he talks then and now are so exactly the same! Seriously! The only thing that is different is that he is a hottie in terms of looks now, unlike that akward kid he looks back then!
Well, it is not technically my 100th post, but the previous one don't count-lah coz it is so short (you can see I am finding excuses here).
So, to commerate my 100 posts in the past 7 and a half months, I have decided to take a stroll down memory lane.
Yesterday night, went out with family to a distant cousin's 21st birthday party. After that, hung out at my uncle's house. It is then my aunt showed me and my cousins some really old photo albums that she uncovered whilst cleaning the storeroom.
So there we were, browsing what seems to be years and years of a collection of memories. Way back from photos of my late grandfather back in secondary school, my late grandparents' wedding, my mom and her siblings growing up, and of course photos of myself and my cousins when we wore diapers.
So here are a few snapshots of "those were the days..."
My mom (middle) and her sisters
My mom blowing the cake alongside her parents and four siblings
Me as a baby - I seriously think I have a massive head. Maybe that is why I also looked like I suffered from hair loss
Finally, as a toddler, I have some hair. Lol. I like this pic because I was actually smiling. I tell you, I hardly smile in most of my toddler photos. I must be some kind of deep and thoughtful thinker back then. At least I can say, don't blame me for not smiling now. I have always been like that
Trying to act cute. I tell you, must be my mom's idea of this cheesy pose. Lol
And so, in keeping with my theme of strolling down memory lane, I have decided to browse through some of my comrades' blogs and visit the post that gave birth to the thing that truly defines them for who they are today. Yes, I am talking about the first ever post they have written.
It is funny too when I looked through my posts. How they have evolved. My blog has been a journey discovering my style of writing and the perspective I had wanted for my blog. What did I want this blog to be about? And I realized that my posts have always been pretty random but one thing stays true - it has always been who I really am, not who I wanted the world to think I am.
I have to admit, some of my posts were also really crappy. When I read through them, I felt like deleting them. What in he world was I thinking, posting that? But then I realized those are the components that made up this blog - all the crappy and good posts. All those flaws are what make up this blog.
And the same goes to life as well. We have made mistakes we are not proud of back in the past, but we are unable to delete them as well because truly, they are what make us who we are today. That is how I feel like as I write this, that a blog is something like our lives as well, with all the perfect flaws thrown in.
The essential thing is perhaps, having a sense of acceptance. Accept the flaws and the mistakes we made. Until we find the courage to accept them, we will never move on.
Ok, so now in random and no particular order, I present to you the list that started it all:
