Who is the girl I see staring straight back at me?
Had this happen to you? To me, yes. One day, I was looking at the mirror and I said exactly what the song said.
Who is the girl I see? Unlike the song and the movie Mulan, I did not pretend to be someone else. I really don’t know myself. I don’t know what I really wanted.
I like to be a lot of things at the same time – a psychologist, a writer, traveler, photographer and some other stuff. A lot of times, I’m asking myself that maybe wanting to be a lot of things is synonymous to someone who does not have dreams and passion. Am I right?
My brother always said that he’s a jack of all trades, master of none. I feel like that as well. But I don’t know which of which is my most passionate about.
Is wanting to be a lot just running away to the reality that I really do not have any passion? Or maybe I just really want to be a lot to carpe diem?

And this is Lea Salonga’s version of the song.
