ROYP: From missed opportunities to vanity, here's what our readers see of the world

ROYP: From missed opportunities to vanity, here's what our readers see of the world

Each week, we’ll be asking some Young Post readers to share a little bit about themselves and a quote that inspires them

Hi guys – I’m a procrastinator with a name that no one can really spell. I have far too many things on my ‘to-do list’ from 2010, so that’s what I’ve been doing for the past six years. I’m a slight perfectionist, a student, and a cheap-skate at times.

Most inspiring quote:

“On the other hand, you have different fingers. Just kidding. May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.” - Steven Wright, American actor

That quote is up for interpretation, but I think it’s about looking out for what’s right and grabbing your opportunities. Nothing too fishy… And that’s my attempt at being inspirational for you!

Hello everyone! I’m Cyril – my name is pronounced with a “Sai” sound instead of a “Sirr”; I don’t really know why, it’s just how my parents named me. Outside school I do a lot of different stuff: I write songs and produce music, I blog, I design, and I like to spend a portion of my free time in the gym, too, because exercising releases endorphins, which make life better.

I believe that it’s OK to feel sometimes like we don’t fit in with others; how boring would it be if we were all the same?

Most inspiring quote:

“You are a soul with a body.” - Unknown

I believe that the body is a reflection of the soul. In this era, people are very caught up with how they look and how they physically present themselves to others, and it seems that all we see are the bodies and not the soul. We judge based on the initial impression and often forget that the body only comes with the soul. What we should measure is the soul, not the body.
