Work Hard and Save!

Last night I was reading an article about how millionaires spend their money. It was a good read. Aside from reading the article, I am really fond of reading the comments of the readers on it, and something hit me.

I am trying to get a screen shot of it however it comes out on the page small so I will just copy and paste it. :)

Maraming mahirap na inggit sa mayaman pero nasa sugalan at inuman lang naman, ang mga anak ang nangangalakal. At kung mag-anak, parang wala nang bukas! Yung mga milyonaryo nagtrabaho, nagsumikap para marating nila kung nasaan sila.Habang nagpapayaman sila, nagtipid ang mga yan, kaya nung mayaman na pwede na gumastos. Swerte na lang yung mga pinanganak na mayaman di na nila pinipagdaanan ang hirap ng mga nagpamana sa kanila. Kaya huwag mainggit, magsumikap at magtipid.
Boom! I know, its not that easy but this is all I need.

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Sinusulat ko ang post na ito habang asa office. 5:30pm pm ang duty ko at ngayon ay 7:17 pm na! Paulit ulit na tinutugtog ang The Lazy Song ni Bruno Mars habang ineenterntain ang thought na “today i don't feel like doing anything,” pero no choice, andito na ako sa office, nagaantay ng email, naghahanap ng ka chat (buti nalang si Cyrus anjan), at binabasa ang blog ni Resty (salamat sa google reader). Siguro nga kung hindi naboblock ang blogger dito sa office andami ko ng na post. Haha…

Anyways, habang binabasa ko ang blog ni Teng, may biglang pumasok sa isip ko… Ano kaya kung kunin ko na ang backpay ko sa tatlong former companies ko? Yeah, sa tagal ko ng nagwowork, five companies for almost six years, isang beses ko palang naeexperience ang backpay! Ewan ko ba, nakakaalis ako sa isang company na di ko napoprocess ang clearance ko, at pag walangclearance, walang backpay! Hindi naman sa hindi ko kailangan ang pera (kung alam niyo lang), pero kasi pag alis ko sa isang company, may work na agad ako next week, siyempre wala ng time, hanggang sa di ko na alam kung asan ang mga gamit na kailangang isauli, at ayun, paalam backpay! Hanggang sa tinamad na akong mag asikaso kasi kuntento na ako sa mga bagay na mayroon ako ngayon.

Sabi nga:

I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil -- this is the gift of God.

A Blessing To Me

You know how much you've mesmerized me.

From your wit, to the way you dress, to the way you gave me that smirk.

Now we’re here, who would have thought?

You are a blessing to me.

Transformers will never be the same without you.

Yellow cab will never taste the same the way I’ve share it with you.

Your stories made my day. Your pieces of advice inspire me.

Still, you are a blessing to me.

I’m thankful you are there for me.

The same way I am always here for you.

The moment times get rough and emotions collapse

Please continue becoming a blessing to me.

My High School

A friend from High School and I chatted last night. Thanks to SKYPE, I was able to talk to her while cleaning my mails. It was fun. It was exciting having someone from the past go through all the things that you’ve done before. And to my surprise, talking about my High School seems easy.

So let me tell you something about my school.

Thanks to a streamer that my Dad saw in the streets, my parents forced me to apply for Muntinlupa Science High School (MunSci). It was scary at first but I know that if ever I passed, its way better that being in one of the pilot sections of our City High School. The entrance exam was hard, coming from a private school, I never thought that algebra were already being discussed to six graders, I even cannot believe it that I made it. I still remember rehearsing things to say if ever an interview will take place. HAHA! Thankfully, there wasn’t, and there I was part of the pioneer class of MunSci, one of the crème of the crop of our humble town.

I will admit that High School was really not my turf. I was really used to coasting along with the subjects because I really don’t like stressing myself. Academically, I know I was not good enough; I was not even stellar – pretty average, pretty ordinary. My batch mates were really serious about school. It will be an achievement for us if you will top a math quiz bee, join Digital LG quiz, win for a journalism press conference, those kind of things, while I just focus on Harry Potter, review when needed, and just sleep and watch TV on weekends – if you don’t have any projects to finish.

For an average and not so diligent student like me, MunSci will be the biggest challenge that you can possibly have. You have to go home late because you have to practice for a inter section competition, you have to leave your house on weekends because you have a project that is due Monday, you have to contribute for a recipe on a T.H.E assignment that you don’t even eat, and on top of that the schedule of quizzes and periodical exams never gets adjusted. It was really tiring and stressful. What’s worse is that you have to continue doing it, because at the end of the day, you know that it will all be worth it.

Socially, High School was really not my thing. Unlike now, back then I was really shy and quiet. I only talk when someone talk to me. I argue with someone for sitting on my chair. Singing, dancing and acting is really not my thing. I have some friends, like the girl I talked to yesterday, but I think I can only count them. People get pissed with me without me knowing what I did wrong. And until now, I never attended any gathering or reunions because I know that I will not have someone to talk to. Okay, put the L in the air now. HAHA

My economics teacher ask our section before, what will you like more, college or high school? Since we were still at high school, my classmates definitely say its high school, while I just remained quiet while my teacher uttered, “para sa akin, mas masaya ang college.” She’s right.

Hence, I still love and will always love MunSci. The amount of appreciation I have for all my teachers before is even impossible to fathom, because without my beloved Alma Matter, I will never be like this. If not for MunSci, College will never be easy, Confidence will be scarce, and being unsocial will always be my thing. I will always look back at how my school taught me with so many things academically, socially, and emotionally. I will always be proud of you, Muntinlupa Science, thank you for all the wonderful memories.
