classes officially ended friday. last day of exams and paper submissions this friday. one more week...one more. hang on tight.
whew! this sem's really tight. the second to the last sem hopefully. next sem, pano kaya? it'll go well.
anyway, i'm posting my yearbook write-up. here it is:
If for an instant God were to forget that I am a rag doll and gifted me with a piece of life, possibly I wouldn't say all that I think, but rather I would think of all that I say. I would value things, not for their worth but for what they mean. I would sleep little, dream more, understanding that for each minute we close our eyes we lose sixty seconds of light…
-Gabriel Garcia Marquez
So many things to do, so little time…make the most out of it.
This has always been my guiding philosophy. It comes as no surprise that people usually see me as “ngarag, haggard, busy.” A friend would say: “ang goal niya sa buhay ay pahirapan ang sarili.” Hirit pa ng isang friend ko, “Teka lang. Hinga ka muna…o sige, tuloy na uli.”
Forever stereotyped as “the prof” since first year, “na nag-aaral na for NatSci next sem,” I usually find myself the butt of jokes for my corny punchlines and non-existent social and love life. A friend once wrote: “Jobert: The face. (?) The brain. All for the love of…books.” Buti na lang di ako pikon, or am I?
When people ask me to lighten up a bit (“ligawan mo na si…”), I’d say I enjoy what I’m doing and that things will just come. Ika nga, “Don’t look for the right person, wait to be the right person.”
College has changed my views on a lot of things. Yes you work hard, but for the right reasons…for the greater good. And you don’t stop just because you’re tired. You rest. Then go on…keep on dreaming.
