I thought racists are the worst enemies…
Nag-Tagalog lang, tatawa-tawa pa. Gaya-gaya puto maya, hindi naman kaya. I don’t know you personally but here’s what I can say: watch out you ugly spice girls from sitting at the back of the van. Karma is already digital; you’re just a swipe away.
When I was leaving for Iloilo today, my little sister, first cousin, and her cousin from her mother’s side went with me to the terminal. My cousin said, “Aalis na kami Ate Ax.” I felt kind embarrassed; I know how to speak in their dialect, only that she’s just used to talking to me in the Filipino language eversince I came to study in Roxas City.
Suddenly when the van started moving, there was a girl at my back who kept on pushing my chair. Unfortunately, the location I hate the most in the van was where I was sitting, the small one attached to the chairs in third row behind the driver. It sucks. I know, right?
Eventhough I was beginning to dislike my companions from the back, I still kept my cool and they didn’t even hear anything from me. I just exchanged messages with my boyfriend and cousin so I can divert my attention. Their group was suddenly beginning to get into my nerves when they were already saying things in Tagalog.
“Tagalog”, by the way is not our native tongue, that is what we call people from the Metro. We use the Filipino language, but others prefer to stickto that term even if it’s wrong. No one can hide the fact that Filipinos imitate the accent of foreigners (no need to specify) during work, in the classroom, or even just for fun. But I just found out that there are some people who come from the same country you’re at who couldn’t care less and are highly rude.
When the L300 van was pasing by each district, I was thinking: “are you answering a quiz?” (why?) , “because you are enumerating everything.” I was totally fed up but still I was composed (maybe because we were not raised the same way and/or we have different educational attainment and emotional quotient). I was thinking: “Hello, do you know Google Maps?” Geez, I guess they haven’t heard of it.
I don’t need to eavesdrop since I can clearly hear everything since their voices are like tuning higher than the ’80s love songs being played by the driver. I just want to share that I was not expecting that for my short vacation in the province I got to share a vehicle with four of the most boring, corny and childish people I’ve ever encountered in my entire life.
I thought racists are the worst enemies… but the worst enemies are actually residing in the same country. You won’t know their names (yet) and crab mentality is their game. Boo.
My parents taught me how to be humble. I don’t need to pull someone to be the best.
Asking is just a step away
Earlier today, I learned another lesson that most of us don’t do any more—to ask. Since most of us now live on a modern lifestyle with technology rising and gadgets everywhere, we make ourselves prisoners of these advancements instead of taking control over them.
After my work, I rushed down the stairs of the front of our building site to ride our company’s shuttle service so I can save money. What I thought could help me have savings did not really help me at all. I was riding the vehicle without asking where the route is. I haven’t noticed until I was somewhere new; I felt something was wrong and I felt that it is a different place but I just kept silent.
I was shy to ask others inside the shuttle as I don’t know them personally and I guess I’m just too shy to be laughed at. Well, that mere fact that I didn’t have the guts to ask led me to somewhere very far, towards an opposite direction to where I should be going.
Every challenge we face in our day to day living, we get think that we must win the situation but we forget to think how we are going to do it? Surviving is difficult especially if you make yourself an outcast. What if the food you have on hand is not safe to eat? As the saying goes,”if in doubt, ask.”
Ned Hepburn: DO-IT-YOURSELF GUIDE TO DEALING WITH YOUR CRITICS
1) Do not, under any circumstances, read the comments. “Anonymous” is not a real person. “Anonymous” is disappointment, weakness fighting back, and envy at its worse
2) This is how you’ll win: Surprise everyone with the next thing you do.
3) Don’t ever forget the reason you started…
Title: Turn Up The Music
Artist: Chris Brown
This music makes me feel sexy this summer. Gettin’ ready for a not-so serious packing, just travelling light. :)
Life is what you make it
Hiding behind sayings like ” I am only human” is a cowardly act. We say it so we can protect ourselves from the blame; it’s like a projection of one’s fault to something just be free from it.
Yes, we make mistakes but there are lessons that we should also learn the first time it crosses our path. In a movie that I watched two nights ago, the actress said that, “every minute that passes in another chance to turn it all around.”
After hearing the statement, I was enlightened since I have been having regrets about the past when I don’t acknowledge the fact that I should leave it all behind. Upon hearing that, it made me think like, “why should I spend time thinking about it if I can move on and never hold the burden inside?”
As we have a fast changing lifestyle, we oftentimes forget what matters most. We seldom spend time with our own selves to have an “alone time”; to think over things that are of importance; we froget to share our time or even what we have with our family and friends.
