What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. I have been mentioning in my blog about how awesome we all are. Well this Saturday was a superb one. That meaning, I got a compliment from an anonymous friend via Smcm Compliments, a facebook page which sends compliments anonymously to friends. This is one of the best thing as people get cheered up and I had the pleasure of sending compliments to many friends through here. My friends said that “Peekay Than is a joy to be around. He is filled with so much positive energy that is truly infectious. I am grateful to have him as a friend in my life.” Well I’m glad that we are friends too. Also it never fails to warm my heart of how a small compliment can go such a long way. So offer a thank you to those who are your friends, those who clean your floor, bus or train drivers, teachers, or anyone just for being them. You never know how far that will carry you or how much that will inspire another person.
On that note, I want to expand on why it is important to be you. We all have flaws and everything and if we were all the same, we would all have the same problems and it would be boring. With the uniqueness, we can learn from each other and address problems and bring something positive to the table. Why don’t I talk about who I am. I am Peekay, a perky meteorologist who likes to be positive, watches a shit ton of football, who always gives his best each day, and strives to make a difference. I also take pride in the fact that I tried my best and I always show passion. This has helped me stay positive and chase your dreams and help others out. For example, I brought my FOM Grade to an “A” by being passionate and that is how I feel happy about myself. And today in psychology we talked about how conforming to a group can be dangerous as problems can grow and mistakes are not addressed and can lead to disasters such as The Challenger in 2003. As Honest Abe (Abraham Lincoln) surrounded himself with people of dissent to address flaws, you need some uniqueness and balance. But don’t let dissent ruin things, you need to agree without violence, so no one gets in trouble. But listen to other opinions so we can avoid errors and improve ourselves.
When one conforms to a group, they tend to suppress their identity in order to go for acceptance. The person that you need to impress is yourself. You only have one chance of life here on this planet, so let’s make it great. DAMN IT don’t conform to be accepted, in face you will be accepted more just being you, SO THERE. Be you and unique so we can learn something new or enjoy your presence. With my friends, I have some sports fans, video games, hard workers, or just those that are polite and accept me for who I am. So my friends and I learn from each other and then I learn new hobbies. After coming to college, I learned to enjoy video games, Magic the Gathering, Thai food, and just talking to different people. Just because I am one person, doesn’t mean I don’t get along with others. With different opinions, we can make an even better solution. For example, I got my computer science grade up to an “A”, because I worked with my friend and we addressed each other’s errors and got a 110% on the project! So keep being you and true to yourself and listen to different opinions, you will be glad that you did. There is no one else like you out there. For you conformist, I’m sorry but you can never truly be like another person. You are too awesome and unique.
Carpe Diem and YO YO YOLO
