I just read the first blog posts of Sacha Chua and realized that she’s really waaaaaaay ahead. I admire her so much and I consider her as my benchmark for my IT career – basically because she’s my age. But, gosh. I just realized that she’s like ahead of me ten times over. I feel like I could never, ever be as good as her. Heck, this girl had her own laptop + Internet connection since college (or maybe even high school!) . Hmmm.. it just shows that the rich could really be ahead because first and foremost, they have all the resources that they need.
I graduated in college without having my own PC. I had my first PC when I was already working for more than a year and my Internet connection at home about two years ago.
Maybe I couldn’t make all these things the reasons why I couldn’t seem to use my potentials to the fullest. Or maybe I don’t have what it takes to be somebody? No, I won’t accept that. I have something and I’m capable of being somebody if I just exert all the effort and focus on what I do best that the world needs.
I still have a lot of reflecting to do about that.
