Tick Tock Tick Tock


The clock is ticking. Time is my enemy now.

The following weeks will be very crucial. So far, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s hurting me to realize that I’d be leaving soon.

For a time, I began to consider not to leave anymore.

For my mom. For my friends. For YOU.

But,

What would I do here, if ever? Get a job, of course. And then what? Earn Php20,000? Php25,000? Php30,000? With that income, would I be able to provide my bride with a decent wedding? Would I be able to send my little boy to Xavier, and my little girl to Poveda? Would I be able to provide my family, including my aged mother, with a comfortable and respectable life that they deserve?

I want to become a better person.

Not just for myself. But more importantly, for the people I love and care about.

For my mom. For YOU. For OUR future.

I want YOU to be proud of me.





Now, my question for YOU is:

"Would YOU be willing to take that chance with me?"

    This one's coming from my heart, dude. You know me, the drama queen hehe

    I wish you all the best...in love, in life, in your future career.

  12. @Steph: Salamat. Gusto ko talaga maging maayos ang lahat. Para sa mga taong importante sa buhay ko.

    @Ella Babes: Salamat. You don't know how much I value your opinions, eventhough we don't really know each other personally. Totoong mahirap kasi it won't be the first time if ever. But I'm willing to take that chance again. Abangan ang susunod na kabanata. Hehehe! = D

  15. That's a tall order for that someone. Pero siyempre, you are the master of your destiny as you are the driver of your own wheels. Sense of balance lang, pare.

    With sacrifices comes fruitful rewards. Pero siyempre, tinitimbang pa rin natin ang mga isa-sacrifice natin.

    I hope you all will find your answers. :)

  22. medyo na bother lang ako dun sa linyang "i want to become a better person" after mentioning salary. i hope you are not equating being a better person with having a high-paying job :)

    i commend you for having the courage to leave the ones you love with the goal of coming back to provide a better future for them.

    all the luck man! we will sure miss you :)

  27. natagalan ang comment ko. pero eto na...

    i admire your courage. unang una dahil iiwan mo ang mga taong mahalaga syo in pursuit of a better life for yourself and the people who matters so much to you.

    pangalawa, yung courage na aminin sa sambayanang pilipino (oa?) ang pagsinta mo sa kanya. =)

    good luck crazz! i'll see you in Singapore next year!
