I feel good about today.
My complaining about having to stay in the province has got to stop. It is very ungrateful and insensitive and stupid of me to complain about something as trivial as this. Sure, there isn’t much to do here, the internet connection is blah, and I’m basically stuck in the house since I got nowhere to go, but it isn’t that bad.
Looking at the bright side, I could see that I have seven dogs with me here (one is with my sisters in Manila, at the moment), a Kindle loaded with over a dozen new books I could read at my disposal, and an external hard drive that has TV series and movies I could watch day and night. That’s only three of several things I should be thankful for, but for the past week I just make this place sound so horrible, even if that isn’t really the case.
Lastly, and this is the most important thing I always forget to be grateful for, is my previous semester’s grades. I passed everything, I didn’t even get a 3.0, and having passed all my subjects, I would not attend classes this summer. That’s why I’m stuck here in the province, but I didn’t fail anything!! Several of my classmates got failures, and being sad about having to stay in the province seems all the more shallow of me. I pray that they’d get through this bump on the road.
I didn’t say I prefer Laguna over Manila now, for I still would very much love to stay in Manila… all my friends are there, and there are plenty of places to go to… but I should stop my whining/complaining/ranting and just enjoy my time here, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing from this day on.
