Part of that World

I spent 4 hours every day to travel from my home to the slope of the mountain.  I am almost finished with my tasks and it is my first time to have a regular daily activity with that amount of travel time.  I commute by the way everyday.  And I am not used to that ever since.   As I commute my way everyday, I saw different kinds of people, different kinds of students, and different kinds of employees.  I was quite fascinated how I noticed these things only now.  Again, I am not used to commuting that looooooooong.  I am not rich.  I do not have my own transportation.  It is just that I am used to a dorm.  I live near the school and recently near my workplace (which is also near my school).  That’s what I am used to.  A walking distance destination or a public vehicle ride of maximum of 45 minutes when traffic is really terrible.  In summary, I walk my way to places.  I do ride the train – distance of 1 station.  I love to walk around that is why I live near my work area.

 

Before entering college, I ride a school service to go to school.  I was sheltered.     Alabang malls are the only malls I can go to alone.  The reason is because there is a direct public ride to those malls from my home and vice versa.  Even riding a tricycle scares me during those times.  I do not even know how to call a tricycle to get a ride.  I could not even ride a jeep alone.  But now, there are kids who are still in grade school who commute everyday.  I also noticed that there are a lot of government schools in the vicinity.  I am not really aware about it since I live in the area where there is only one government school which I am also unfamiliar.  Nobody in my neighborhood went there.  I was thinking that if only my brother would realize how fortunate we are.  Going back to my naiveness.  During the first few months of college, I commute from my home to the school which is in Manila.  It is a very short bus ride and that is the only commute that I knew back then.  House-School-House.  I was able to know RP and SM Manila eventually.  Then I lived close to my school.  That is what I am used to.  It really works for me.  Living near my daily activities.  Sharing the room with minimum roommate as possible.  I am used to living alone in the room anyway.

 

I may hate the 4-hour travel time everyday.  That is because I cannot sleep because it is a jeepney ride!  I am almost done doing that activity and it was just a short period that is why I did not live near the place.  My jeepney ride every day enables me to learn new things about life in a daily basis.  Maybe the reason why I am so exhausted coming home because I think too much.  Siesta is not really popular there and I do not have any restful recreational activities during break.  Is there one anyway?

 

There are ups and downs but I still feel so blessed.  These are all thanks to God Almighty.

Glad I took that call

I thank God I was able to take that call. JR is stepping up. Good for him. I guess it would be additional members for us. Well as for me, I am back here down south. I don’t know if it is the right time to really go back and have my membership transferred here. I like it there in Makati. Maybe because of freedom. I might be missing MANY of our gatherings but I am sustaining myself in some other ways. I may not be with them, but I am with them.

What do I really want to do? Aside from planting trees, flowers, and breeding Tiger Monarchs, I am more into serving God and others. The serving to others is more on the teaching part. Hehehe. Teaching about butterflies and other things related to my field. I love talking but I want to have some hush time most of the time. I describe it as really ironic. I love to talking but I prefer keeping my mouth shut when there is nothing else to do. I can live with that. Unlike my little brother who gets bored when he is not talking. My previous work made me talk for the whole day. Answer calls, do presentation, entertain colleagues, etc. I did that for more than three years and everything is in perfect timing. I have to be full-time in school so I quit work. Thus, my quiet days started. The quietness enables me to be more sensitive to those around me.

I am inserting again the talk of the heart. I uttered about having the same outfit as him if he is God’s gift. And he did. I am assuming that is God’s answer… Well, if he is, he will do something. I am patient with regards to that. I have been waiting since. Hahahaha… Baka connected kami? Hahaha… If I remembered correctly, I prayed to God that I will be able to have mental communication with him. To wear that same colored shirt. Before I sleep, I told him (through my mind) to wear that certain colored shirt. So bukas, ano kaya?
