Then again, this is my blog, so everything here is personal.
You know how, in storybooks or in movies, there’s this one person that seems perfect? Or at least, an ideal character that just leaves you in awe because of how.. genuine they are?
I used to think those kind of people were cliches that writers made up in their heads. But there’s this one guy in my batch who’s basically, well, perfect.
Looks, brains, wit, charm, humility. And he has an appreciation for musicals. And he reads good books. Everyone likes him, it’s impossible not to. It’s hard to not be attracted to that sort of warmth and general “goodness” (?) I guess. It’s amazing how there are people in the world like him. I’m not saying he’s 100% perfect but damn, is he likable.
I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a fancy him a little but really, it’s mostly admiration. I want to be that sort of person; someone people like and want to talk to, and be around all the time. Sure, I’m not detested by society (most of the time) but to be that attractive to others, not because of how you look but because of who you are as a homo sapien.. that’s just the paragon of what I’d like to be.
My psychology tutor always says that your personality is already set. You may fluctuate or alter who you are to suit social situations but mostly, you’re already molded to what you’ll be for the rest of your life. In that case, that classmate of mine is very lucky to be who he is. I think personalities can we tweaked to have a different perception of things and hopefully, I can find a way to be better than I am today.
Meanwhile, I shall admire him from afar and wonder how in the world will I ever remotely exude that authentic wholesomeness.
