Last Christmas party we had at DME, we we’re eating with Scott on the same table and he happen to ask one question that was very hard to answer. He asked, “If this Christmas, a genie appears and would ask you for only one wish – it could be anything, but only one, what would you wish for?” After everyone shared what they would wish for, I still couldn’t think of anything. Maybe I just took it a little bit to serious, but then, I was really thinking on the line of what to ask, if it were to happen. That night, I never ended up replying anything. To be honest, I really do not know what to ask for. I don’t wanna ask for fame or fortune or whatever material things because they don’t make people happy – well, not me. I don’t wanna ask for happiness because I would lose my life’s goal. Yes, I’m still stuck on that childish and selfish thought that my purpose in life is to find my true happiness, whatever it may be.
Until today, while taking a shower, the question found its way to me again, after days of literally forgeting about it. And I thought, I could asked for the power to control time – to go back and forth in time. I would go to ancient times and observe all of them – their cultures, religions, languages, etc. I would want read all of their literature, sing all their songs, speak all their languages and have fun learning. But then, a power that great would probably grant me immortality at some point. And the exchange for it, I guess, would be something of greater pain.
