It has been 22 years and Change has been my twin as I grow up.
I remember the last time I went in my Alma Matter, I was talking to my grade 5 adviser about the requirements needed for my teaching application. We were chatting for almost 5 minutes when she finally asked my name, “I am Jei Son, Ma’am “ I courteously said, her eyes wide open and I can’t totally paint her face “ Wow” she exclaimed. “I am surprised, you’ve changed a lot and look at you now ”she added after recognizing me. She did not expect that after 8 years she will meet me again as teacher
Maybe or indeed she was correct that I’ve changed a lot.
Time changed and keeps changing me not only my physical appearance but also my point of view because of the experiences it brought to me. The happiness and most especially the pain escorted me to take every opportunity to change and improve in all possible I can. I grew up as ordinary person: I played when I was elementary, made friends when I was high school and studied a bit seriously when I was in college (pretty cool and easy right?) but along those journey , people who measured, criticized and mauled me became my passport to be better. “Easy life, prove them wrong” I said and most of the time it works however there were aspects that they did not change me as well and one of those is to keep the life light and simple: be jolly, laugh as much as possible and crack jokes with friend , opppsss……….maybe those are reasons why I look younger (joke). Anyways, as of now, I am enjoying myself as a Call Center Agent but I am planning to teach again but this time here in Makati… I’m hoping!
