Long time no see!
I haven’t wrote about anything for over a month, and I want to share an experience I recently had which I really enjoyed.
Sometimes, people need to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. They need to get away from it all, to rest their weary bones and soothe their souls. So, I decided to go to Olango Island, specifically Tingo, my mother’s hometown. For me, it is an experience which I can never forget.
While in Olango, we stayed in Baybayon Beach Home, a beautiful location in Tingo, northern tip of the island. It makes you feel like you are at a home and gives you a nostalgic feeling of tranquility.
After putting personal belongings here, we decided to tour the island. Riding a tricycle has never been more fun seeing people go about in their daily lives. We went to San Vicente and checked out a few places.
The truth is, I really regret that I only took a few photos of the places we went 😦 because I really enjoyed my stay there. This has been a wonderful experience. I hope I can see you guys there someday! 🙂
Graduation. The day where you feel that you achieved everything in life, where your goals are achieved, diploma obtained and made yourself and your parents proud. When I graduated almost two months ago, I felt that I have reached a point where I know that I have been successful with my life. I really felt pride in myself that I have a diploma which I can look at and say to myself that ” This is the end. I did it!”
And a month later, I was proven so wrong.
It dawned to me that the real world isn’t about the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees and the moon up above. It is about looking for post-graduate studies and looking for a job so that you can have your own money and sustain yourself and also help your family. The real world is a harsh place where if you lack the guts and the initiative to survive, you will be eaten alive. My naivety was shattered and developed a more pragmatic and realistic viewpoint of life. Or maybe I was too sensitive to begin with, I should change. These are the things that I realized post-graduation, and many more.
And most of all, I realized that life is not about having the best, it is about making the best of what you have. I have earned this diploma, and I will prove it to the world that I am someone who will make his mark someday, somehow.
Good day to all!
