Looking Back

25 years ago, my mother sent me to The Sisters of Mary School in Sta Mesa Manila. It was the first time ever that i will be away from them. First time means i haven't even experienced sleeping over to anybody's house. So to imagine me walking down that huge gate of the school while my mother was looking at me, i went straight to the building without looking back. Am afraid they might see my tears falling. It was one of the saddest days of my life. I thought i cannot make it but with the hope of graduating high school, i did it four years after. How excited i was to look at that huge gate again, looking at my parents waiting for my return. One of my happiest days to see them, hug them, kiss them once more.

 Life inside the school was fun. It was like Princess Sara style but all we do everyday for 365 days was to pray, study, work and play. This school molded me on what i am today, my core and my being straightened out to be the person i am 25 years after. That's a lot of job - imagine we are almost 500 in our batch. They have made great things to all of us. Father Al, the founder is on his way to sainthood, and there's no doubt he will be. I will be forever thankful to him and all the nuns. If i have to choose my life, i will do it again.

Social Media Break

A few weeks ago, i found myself asking why i spend too much time holding or just looking at my phone. I feel imprisoned every time there's a notification from any of my mobile apps - be it facebook, instagram, messenger etc etc! See the list of all these apps are countless, well some i need for my work but some are just for socialization in the world wide web and NOT IN ACTUALITY and i get TIRED of it all. Those lines --- so far yet so near. Well now i want to live with the real world around me. SO i decided to put off my data every night and turn in on in the morning upon waking up. Just so i can check the emails that needs my attention first thing in the morning. If you know me well enough, i can't stand even one unread email so i have to glance at it quickly and my mind has to organize the first stuff to do and then accomplish every single one of them before the day ends.

I have allotted some free time but still i feel am stuck with looking at these social media apps from time to time. It's eating a lot of my FREE time, if you know what it means. My free time now i plan to spend with actual people in the REAL WORLD. Away from the limelight of the social media. I have yet to deactivate my account but i have deleted all these apps from my mobile phone. I wonder if it will just be a social media break, BUT for over a week now am enjoying the world around me--- untied from the social media apps of my phone.  I feel like shouting FREEDOM! Coz am really free to the real sense of the word.
