If life were a book, this school year opens up my redemption chapter. Last school year I promised I would do well but instead dropped my responsibilities because my attention was focused on something/someone else. This time I want to be a better person, and to make sure no salt is applied on my wounds. It’s going to be difficult, but I will try, and not regret it.

Here they are:

  1. Be brave and stand up to yourself. Last year I did a lot of favors for a lot of people. In that process, I realized I was being used. They kept asking for money from me (ranging from P20-100). There was one who even threatened to hurt me if I didn’t give my phone to her/him for keeps (also said I should pay her/him P1000 if I don’t hand it over). I won’t let that happen again. All men were created equal, and I believe it is no one’s right to manipulate others for their happiness.
  2. Be determined. Last year I thought I would make it to the Top Ten, but I didn’t. I didn’t try hard because that time the only thing I cared about was something/someone who/that isn’t even going to give me honors. My current class, 8B, is full of people who don’t really care about what’s going on. Only a few recite, and because of this, I am motivated to do so. I’m going to keep my eyes on the prize, because determination is a key in being successful.
  3. Do your duty. It’s hard to resist procrastination, I know. But I see how 8A students (8A’s the star class this year…I think?) can be so responsible. They really use their time wisely. I should do the same.
  4. Be compassionate, no matter what. Despite the harshness of words thrown at me in school, I should keep in mind that these guys are still sweet summer children who don’t know that winter is coming for them all human. I would still forgive them, even when I’m on the verge of hitting someone (which, I recall, rarely happens).
  5. Stop promising the impossible. I can be as excellent as Loki in lying to others. As months passed, I learned from the ASOIAF series that words are wind. You tell someone you’d give him P500 tomorrow when you know you can’t. It makes the listener person happy, but for a short time.

There are a lot more, but I forget them at times. The ones listed above are the most important. So everyone out there, let’s make this school year mold us into better people, alright?
