Blog Review 2010

WordPress sent me this mail … It’s been there for some time but I hadn’t known because I don’t check my blog mail. I thought I’d post it here:

I AM A TREE … EVERGREEN

This is an application essay for a programme I had applied for but hadn’t made in, in 2009.  It asks each applicant to describe himself/herself with a metaphor.  Some other applicants’ metaphors were “an uncut stone“, “a mirror“, “fire“, “dynamic pillared tier“, etc.  This is mine:

Tree

I wanna be like a tree ...

I consider myself to be similar to a tree in several ways.  Although I am not completely like a tree yet, I would like the stages of my life to be akin to the growth of a tree.  I intend my set of beliefs and my role in community to resemble how a tree serves the environment.  Since I would like to be of service to mankind throughout my life, I exemplify myself with a tree evergreen.

Fertile soil, bountiful sunshine, adequate water and others factors contribute to the growth of a tree.  I am privileged to have been well nurtured by my parents, teachers and relatives.  As a tree gets itself firmly rooted in the ground, I appreciate and love dearly all those who have helped me.  I will keep moving forward to experience new and better things like a tree grows higher towards sunlight.  I shall compound my knowledge and learn new things as long as I live – similar to the growth of a tree until its death.

I, as a tree evergreen, will be a shaft of beauty towering high – I will try to become an idolized role model to many people.  Being someone who believes in caring and sharing, I want to do it for those around whom my world revolves.  A tree can care and share; it grows leaves, flowers and fruits and provides sap and wood.  These can serve as food, shelter or other materials for humans and other animals while as a whole, it provides shade and coolness.  I would like to share all the good things I have in my little world with every possible person.

I have a good intension to keep caring for and sharing with others.  I would like to maintain consistency of my precepts and principles in life like an evergreen keeps its foliage all year round.  I will stand tall to get by and keep growing till my last breath.  I am indeed a tree evergreen!

NOTE: This is too strong a form of self-aggrandizement, but it can reflect my real self.  And with no amazement, I find that I feel the same way about myself as I had felt while writing this essay.

Rain, sunshine, snow, blue skies;
You’re gloomy if you feel so inside.
Near, far, seconds, light years;
Break barriers, don’t cling to fears.
Big, small, with or no form
You’ll be small if size not ignored.
Go see yourself in the mirror –
Know this: It’s who you see you are!

WHO AM I?

First of all, I would like to make one thing very clear – you might find me cryptic.  I am different from anyone you will have ever known.  You will find many things in me some things you won’t find in others.

Most of you visiting this site will already know me very well.  I am Han Zaw.  My English name is Déline ZcEigch (pronounced: D–lean Zak–H).  I took it from Céline Dion (my favourite woman on earth besides my mother) and the spelling of the initial letters of my Myanmar name inverted.  You can address me in whatever way you like, e.g. Han, Hanz, HZ, Déline, D-Zé, Bro as long as it is a gentle and civilized expression.  Please do regard me as a teenager because I am one.

I am now preparing for the embarking of studies in my tertiary education.  I have officially finished high school with stellar grades (I don’t mean to brag … really, but it is true.) although I had expected higher.  You can take me as somebody special, peculiar or even weird because I’m not joining the medical university in my town; that school is what the majority of students crave for.  I’ll tell you more about my reasons and perspectives.

You might want to know as well about my interests.  All my life, all the pastimes and leisure activities I have relished are simply based on creation and presentation – I have done drawing and painting; then writing short stories and articles; and now, singing and musical composition.  I have not found my true interests and talents in life.  Nonetheless, I find myself suitable with and gifted for all kinds of creative works.  The thing I treasure most in life is “appreciation” of others for my works – my creations and presentations.  I have great interest in entertainment and the media, and I am keener on the former one.

I believe in genuine Theravada Buddhism, and therefore worship the Buddha as a great teacher.  I have an intension to share my knowledge on Buddhism, have discussions, learn more and receive comments.  Concerning my personal life, I believe in several principles and precepts of which the following are the chief ones.

  1. “There can be miracles when you believe.”
  2. “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.”
  3. “What we want is always around the corner if we work hard, smart and take one step at a time.”
  4. “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
  5. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” but “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.”
  6. “Love is the thing that holds everything life form together and spins the world around.”
  7. “Learn from the past, face the present, and be prepared for the future.”

Those who already know me as well as who don’t will learn more about me on this site.  Thus, you might come to like me or the other way round!  Who knows?

There is a phrase the words of which – I believe – if one follows can bring him great joy and happiness in life. It consists of three simple words – “Caring and Sharing”. That is exactly what I want to do on this blog. I would like the good things I have in my own little world to be shared and experienced by those near and dear to me and those whose lives can be related to mine one way or another.
