Isn’t it terrifying that I will be turning 23 in a few months? I remember exactly that I was 17 or so when I started this blog and even younger when I started blogging in a different host. Everything seemed to be simpler and easier. What happened now? Haha.
After I graduated from college, meh, I meant right after I finished all my acads, and flew to the US for an internship it seemed like it wasn’t just homework and projects I had to say goodbye to. Memories, friends, school uniform, professors I loved and helped, my condo where I stayed and called home for 4 straight years, roommates, freedom in the US, unlimited drinks, spontaneous trips to Walmart just because, friends friends friends and maybe loved ones, the kimchi and bulgogi restaurant I go for my weekly dose of comfort food, and maybe let’s include the polluted area of Manila. As if all these keep on waving their goodbyes to me all at once. Painful, but you know your only choice was to keep going.
So my advice to those who think they’re through with high school, and as if grades, projects, homework, professors, bully classmates and dragging schedules make you seem exhausted with it all… don’t give up just yet. Your journey isn’t over. I am very much unlikely to say this before and I swear I remember exactly saying that I would NEVER miss studying, and that I was on a hurry to get my college diploma, but I regret it. I regret not having much fun, not leaving the house to party (but then I was never the party kinda girl), go on crazy adventures. I had a few, yes, but if I was given the chance, I’d love to do it all over again. Enjoy your teenage years, your youth, never hurry to get to the finish line. Enjoy while you’re at it, because when you get to your destination, there’s no turning back and no rewind button. :)
