“The world’s one giant amoral toilet bowl and one day we’ll all get flushed.” is one of Julie Copper’s famous line from the teen series The O.C. This line may be true for some, but I beg to differ. Yes, the world may suck some life from us through the challenges, trials, problems and the like that it presents to us but it all comes down to the way one views, handles and copes with these kind of situations. I believe I know myself pretty well. I know who I am… My likes, dislikes, fears, dreams and ambitions... I admit, there may be times of confusion but I always try to be true to myself. For one thing, I know that the difficulties I encounter are pieces of cake, waiting for me to eat them all up. I know I can overcome them and most probably get the result that I want. I know in time thing will be in place, either I put them in place or they just fell in place. I know that even in difficult times, I will still laugh a lot and still try to be funny. But I admit, I know I can’t do it all on my own and I know I won’t always win.
November 23, 2010 was a simple day for me. The world presented itself the way it should have. It took no B.S. that day (B.S. as in the initials for a bad word). All was good – no hassles, no ignorant buffoons trying to ruin my day, no nothing. Cultural Anthropology that day was interesting. I thought 1.“Hey, this class is very similar to my Filipino/Cultural Psychology class. I may adjust well enough.” One thing that kept bothering me? 2.The fact that I knew only one other person in class. Who on earth are these people surrounding me? Another thing that bothered me, 3.“When will my dad win the lottery?” One more thing, 4.“I miss someone.” Why did I think of these, you ask? 1. I’m hoping I can do well in this class so I can keep my grades up and can graduate on time. 2. I feel out of place, an outsider. 3. I really want to go shopping, travel and start my own business. 4. I just do. No explanations needed.
Rewind… I mentioned earlier that I know myself pretty well and I also mentioned I want to graduate on time. Well, not to sound so assuming but I know I will graduate on time. And after graduation, I shall reward myself with a long vacation (since I have been taking summer classes ever since first year even if I wasn’t required too. I just wanted to lighten my load for the upcoming semesters) wherein a lot of bumming will be involved. Once I’ll get a job; a great paying job that is, I shall buy my parents a new house and anything they want, go bonding with my sisters and travel the world. “Soul searching” is on my list too. I will get married and have babies and MAYBE live happily ever after. By the way, did I mention I will earn my first million by the time I turn 24. I will be big someday, although I’m not sure in what way. But I will. Too ambitious? I think so too. But hey, that’s me.
