chasing time

phew. so i was absent for awhile. hehe. been at home most of the time if i’m not working in the morning.

one of the best news i got so far, i PASSED!!!

the previous entry i exclaimed that i failed one of my major subjects last sem. well when i got my grades, i didn’t. i said that i had no other hope left because i didn’t want to expect anything, or if i did, it would be the worst, which is failing. at least now i’m eating my words and still it’s a good thing. can’t say how relieved i am to just look at those grades, although they aren’t the best i’ve got so far, it’s good enough for me. just have to do better this summer.

yes folks, i’m taking up summer classes, as if my life’s not already busy enough with the business we’re trying to be here in. okay just to tell you what we’re doing. we’re trying to market a certain fruit in this side of the island. so far so good i must say, even if we’re not earning that much, quantity over net profit is all i can say. coz the sooner we increase the number of supplies, the more will we retrieve. my father also said that it’s not good if we earn a lot. at least in due process, what we learn is already what we gain. the only thing i hate is every friday (since that’s the time the supply arives) we must wake up early in the morning to get them. 3 of us brothers go the pier and carry loads of crates at approximately 37 kilos each, and deliver them to our clients.

i mustn’t complain that much though, coz who do we got to hope for? nada! if you include hiring someone to do some of the tiring job for you then it’s a total waste of manpower when we can handle it ourselves. besides we’re still in the development method so what’s the use of teaching someone if you yourself don’t know what your selling and how the system works right? conjointly, it’s just a matter of will and how you overcome laziness by being more disciplined is the challenge. school just serves as the return of investment.

so back to summer, since my sked’s already booked in the morning, i applied for afternoon classes:

1:30-3:30 = REED 10 : man in search of God
3:30-5:30 = ENGL 21 : business correspondence
5:30-7:30 = PHILO 25 : philosophy of the human person/ philosophical anthropology

i took minor subjects coz i haven’t got the hang of it yet, this is just my first time. also since i still can’t stand more or less, 2 hours of discussion of numbers when your mind still can’t comprehend what you took up before. the topics amounted to 9 units, still a full-load; to maximize time too. and also to reduce the degree of expenses since the miscellaneous fees will be divided accordingly compared to paying the same extent with just two classes.

the vacation that’s long been deprived of me will still be out of my reach. but i don’t have time to think of having fun as of the moment. life’s been too uptight that it’s hard to put relaxation in our order of business. time’s been too rough that we need to devaluate the cost of money in order to compensate for more practical operations. and in tough situations, there’s no need to take pity on myself, it’ll still be my loss if i do that, no need to compare myself to other much-privileged children out there, we all have different backgrounds.

magkano na ba ang gasul ngayon? bawal magkasakit! at bilog ang mundo! and even so, i’m glad that we’re one of the few people who’ve at least been given the opportunity to change gradually. and we shouldn’t waste any of it now that it’s within our grasp. we just have to hasten the method and really hope for the best. let’s see what’ll happen then.
