Booking trips to Palawan and Sagada because I’m a wanderlust like that.
The rusty gate was left ajar
A boy was looking at the stars.
His face wears a frown
Searching for something he had known.
Last night, I received a phone call from Philippine Star giving me an opportunity to be a part of our nation’s leading newspaper. I was interviewed and took the exam 3 weeks ago but honestly, I was not expecting them to return the call. Because in the real world, if a company haven’t called you back in a week it’s time to look for another.
I became confused from the moment I hung the phone though I said “yes, I will go.” Confused because I am in the middle of processing my application for graduate studies in our country’s premiere university. If I will accept the offer, I will not be able to concentrate on my application. I need to finish samples of creative writing, recommendation forms, transcripts and all that.
I decided to not yet pursue Philippine Star until I finish my application. If by then, the offer still stands I will be glad to accept it, if not, I know better things will come. I just can’t help to think about those opportunities I let pass by.
This is a hard decision for me to make, or should I call it risk. It can break me or make me. I stayed up all night thinking about it. I really want to pursue further studies. I hope I’m making the right decision. I know I’m making the right decision. It will pay off in the end.

It’s really amazing what a year can do. Everything’s crystal clear now. I think part of me will always belong to you. Thank you, Baguio City.
