Another long week for meâ¦
It took me a week before I could finally put my thoughts together about this subjectâ¦ Let me share it with youâ¦ My officemate and I were talking about the Philippines, job opportunities and about getting a college degree. (More background: My officemate is only 21 years old so she plans to get a college degree in the Philippines in the near future but for now, sheâs just saving money for her education and future. Also, she spent her whole life here in Dubai. Her family is based here.) I asked her if in case, she was able to continue her studies in the Philippines and get a degree, will she go back here in Dubai and continue working here? She said no. According to her, she will use her course to further develop itâ¦ then the table got turned, she asked me, âEh, ikaw? Bakit ka nandito?â She must have seen something in my face and quickly said, âSyempre, andito si bf.â
I got stuck on that thought until the time my boss buzzed us and I went in his office. While letting him sign some papers, my mind wandered.
I am here because heâs hereâ¦ Iâm here because I wanted to help my familyâ¦ Being the eldest in the family, I feel that itâs my responsibility to at least give more than half. Iâm trying my best but I also sometimes get tiredâ¦ (Isnât it Van?!)
Tired? Yes, itâs hardâ¦ they expect a lot and I mean A LOT!!! Itâs like you can never make a mistakeâ¦ This is actually what I feel towards my momâ¦ I donât have any problems with my dad actuallyâ¦ he has always been supportive with me.
Aside from that, the responsibility that I have with my brother and sisterâ¦ I donât know if we (eldest) all feel the same way but being here gives me a breatherâ¦
But if I think about it, I miss them allâ¦ my brotherâs so kulit attitudeâ¦ my sister whoâs so talkative over the phoneâ¦ ewan ko ba?! Canât get myself also but this is how I feel at the moment because right now, my mom already saw a house for sale but then the price is too high and now, they expect me to pay the down payment, though the decision is not yet final, I canât do that because I havenât earn that muchâ¦
Oh, by the way, the reasons why Iâm here are: one, to help my family and two, give my chance to do what I want and that is to be with him. Itâs like hitting two birds with one stone (galing?).
True, I wanted a house for my mom and dad but I always thought it will be a team effort but from the way things are goingâ¦ I donât knowâ¦ I just hope that everything will turn out wellâ¦. I hope.
By the way, Iâll show you a picture or a drawing of our projectâ¦ it is so niceâ¦ visit this site: http://www.up.ae
