I think I know what I'm going to see in the mirror of erised.

Sometimes our lives can be mundane. We feel like we’re doing the same things over and over so we tend to try something new and different. And here, is where our wants would enter—want to become productive, want to try new things, and want to get out of our comfort zone. But we need money in order for our lives become more exciting and adventurous. And a lack of money has been a major constraint in every person’s life. It becomes a hindrance in pursuing our dreams and stops us from being ourselves.

I am a person who has goals, wants to try, and learn many things. I want to know how to play the piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, and drums. I want to know how to paint, edit a photo and videos like an expert, design a layout, and also how to drive a car, motorcycle, and even an airplane or helicopter (I’m not kidding). I want to enroll in a workshop; modeling, acting or any types of dancing and martial arts. I want to learn how to speak Mandarin, French or any languages. But the most important thing is for me to learn how to become fluent in English. It’s still hard for me to talk to other people using this language. I stutter and I cannot think properly because of lack of confidence. I also want to improve and expand my vocabulary.

I love to travel too. Because it always reminds me how great our God is. God’s work of art is truly amazing. The beauty of those places give me freedom, appreciate my life and see how blessed I am. I seek adventures. I want to explore, learn different cultures, try to eat new food, and meet new people. I want to try hiking, skydiving, snorkeling, camping, and much more. I want to step out of my comfort zone, try to be independent, and feel exactly as my age. Because people make me feel like I’m a baby who still needs a guide to everything. Though I like it because I find it sweet, sometimes I want to see myself as a mature woman.

But because we’re not rich I’m not able to do all of these things right now. I’m still young and definitely, have more time to do these things soon. I’ll just finish my college first so I can start achieving my goals.

Basically, what I’m going to see in the mirror of erised is a woman who is craving for knowledge, and experience. A woman who is cool, brilliant, talented, independent, and brave. A woman who is a role model to everyone. A woman who just wants to live boldly. To make this short, a kick-ass woman like Hermione Granger, Annabeth Chase, Katniss Everdeen, Clary Fray, Tris Prior, Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, and Lyanna Mormont. (LOL)
