It's Sunday and I was starting to feel bad that it's Monday tomorrow when I came across Bo Sanchez's vid saying something like, "wherever you are, there's a reason why you're there." I don't feel so bad anymore.
At my room now. I turned my study table into working table for gardening stuff so everything's beyond messy. 2 months since I started having an interest with plants and I already have 3 casualties. Truly heartbreaking. But I learn so many things. I'm gonna do everything in my power to make sure that none of my plants will ever die again.
Watched an orchestra for the first time last Friday and I was mesmerized by the soloist. I'm no expert in music, but with these ears, I know na angat na angat ang quality ng music nya kahit ikumpara pa sa buong orchestra. Sobrang galing. She's 17. Said she started playing violin at 12. Made me ask myelf, "ano bang pinaggagagawa ko when I was at that age?"
On stage and sa picture, she looked like a young lady. But when we met her sa backstage, she looked more like a kiddo. Her eyes emit so much innocence, para syang baby. Papasa syang Elementary. So young pero sobrang successful na sa larangang pinili nya. Feeling ko tuloy, sinayang ko ang kabataan ko. Lel.
Kung makakausap ko kaya ang 40yo self ko, ano kayang ibibigay nyang advice sakin? Gusto kong malaman kung ano ano ang magiging regrets ko sa future para masiguro kong mapre-prevent ko yung sarili ko from having those regrets.
Kung mababalikan ko ba ang younger self ko, ano kayang ia-advice ko sa kanya?
-kalma, wag masyado madrama. Be happy.
-don't have your tooth extracted kung pwede naman ipasta para lang makatipid. Siga ulo ka?
-don't take CE. Go for ECE.
-go talk to them. They are your future good friends.
-utang na loob, wag kang mag ROTC. Take NSTP. Utang na loob.
-take care of your health
-don't pop that pimple
-dog fur causes you pimple. You don't have to wash your face 10x a day.
-magpapayat early to avoid cellulite and back fats. You'll have a hard time getting rid of those when you get older.
-grab those free Mandy Moore concert ticket. Tiisin mo nalang ang galit ang mama mo kasi sayang, Baby, sayang!
-rent a bed space in college. Maawa ka sa sarili mo and don't commute 5-6 hrs daily. With that, you don't have to miss all the exciting school events, ie. concerts, dating games, etc.
-sleep. You'll have a hard time getting rid of your eyebags when you get older. Please sleep.
-invest in stock market and make sure to buy double dragon stocks at 2php. The price will shoot up to 50+ in less than a year.
Man, I think I can go on and on on this.
Gusto ko mag travel. Gusto ko ng dagat. Gusto ko bumalik sa Baguio. It is only in times like this that I wish na wala pang asawa si Injan, my favorite travel buddy.
Ang nakakalungkot lang sa single e madalas wala kang mayayang gumala...
That's not entirely true though.
