On Top of the World






Recently, I've stumbled upon a book called 50 successful Harvard application essays. It's just one of those books scattered around my house. Reading the book made me feel 1) depressed because I don't write as well as any of them 2) inspired because maybe, just maybe, I have a sliver of a chance of getting in. And with that, I only hope my attempts of practicing (to write my essay) will be progressive. Truth be told, my writing skills unfold only after everybody else is asleep. And to be quite frank, it sucks. 

On the bright side though, I fell in love with plenty of essays especially one by Chi Zhang called "Simple Sentences" and I hope you like it too. Click here to read the essay, accompanied with the commentary. And it's so astounding how our talents 'kick in only after curfew', and I believe that I, myself, am a paradox as well. 

If you want to, you can buy the book here. It is worth the wait and the money. I mean, if you, personally, enjoy reading other people's stories. Because I know I do. 

And about the photos... Two words: shabby chic. AHAHAHA ok i'll stop now. Have a great day! :)

  8. Hmmm - the only way to improve your writing skills is to keep on writing! Try to avoid comparing yourself to others, because it might just bound you from growing. Also, don't push yourself too hard :) Just channel your thoughts and emotions through words!

    Hmm, but of course, aside from writing, you can also improve by reading books (the kind that feeds the mind) :)

    Try reading 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being', although I'm not sure if you'll like the story.

    And btw, I love your sweater. :) Good luck and have a good day! :)
