Sons of Fortune.

Posted by Paurong sa Martes, Oktubre 30, 2007

One cannot blame me for being so nervous on my Advanced Programming class today. The midterm examination was so unpredictable less the known fact that we have to program three out of five machine problems listed.

My fingers appeared to be runner on a marathon. They won as I summoned my professor to have my programs be checked. I got a perfect score.

I then went to my PE professor and asked if attending his class is still necessary for those who have already taken the Midterm Exam. We can attend if we want, he complacently said, and since I already had my table tennis practical test last Friday, I can go home early.

I went to the library to look for a novel to read at home. It’s been a while since the last time I read novels. David Pelzer’s The Lost Boy, Stephen King’s Hearts in Atlantis, and Sidney Sheldon’s If Tomorrow Comes were the last books I’ve borrowed from the library.

I picked Sons of Fortune by Jeffrey Archer. It is the story of two brothers, Peter Cartwright and Nat Cartwright, who are born twins but are separated at birth. Two chapters down and I am thinking of finishing it by tomorrow. More novels to be read next time!

Those days are over.

Posted by Paurong sa Lunes, Oktubre 29, 2007

It was like in the movies. This someone, whose hair had gone silver, reluctantly making his first footstep on the grounds of his past after several years of solace and seclusion. It is as if flashes of bits of memories hit the very core of his humanity. It is wherein the present and the past merge resulting to an earsplitting sound.

I heard that sound as I enter the elementary school I was studying at many years ago. It was a seven-year experience, memorable experience, for emphasis’ sake.

I became preoccupied with the past. I saw myself riding on the bicycle my grandfather had been driving. I was then a small boy with a smile as big as his. Each school day, he drives me to school. After my classes, he fetches me on going home. He is known among my classmates as a good old man. My classmates oftentimes mano to him as a sign of respect. During weekends, we go to the city library and after borrowing books, I happily put them on the basket placed on the front of his bike. At home, we read it and that’s how my fondness on reading intensified.

Seven years is a very long period of time. Seven years of awards, recognitions, victories and losses. Most of them did a good part in my life. A lot of memories are associated with my involvement on competitions during elementary. Spelling bees, Math contests, various quiz bees, essay writing contest, scouting, journalism and others my memory forgot to share with me at the time being, you name it.

I was reminiscing those things when I heard the drone of the Graduation song. I saw small figures from afar marching towards the environs of the school ground. I saw myself leading the long queue of graduates. For seven years, I had been a part of the stage everytime I have to receive a medal. From Kindergarten to the sixth Grade, I am the Top 1 of the whole Grade Level. I know how much my grandfather, who, together with my grandmother, became my guardian since my dumb parents left me for their lustful needs of having their own separate inane families. Only my grandfather died a few months before my graduation.

I will never forget those days. Especially the people who touched my life during my stay there. My classmates who had been there as my friends and who showed me the true meaning of being a kid. My teachers who loved me as a bright boy who has a wide perspective when it comes to life. And I alike, who was there to be myself to prove my worth.

Those days may be over by now, but the lessons in life I got a hold of will remain in my heart forever.

Lost opportunity.

Posted by Paurong sa Sabado, Oktubre 27, 2007

The first millisecond I saw the above image, I know I want to go. Since it was only for 20 bloggers, I hurriedly signed up and got an e-mail confirmation a few days later. I did not confirm my slot and now, look at me, I am nothing but a regretful boy.

Theater. It is something I love. It is something I want. But out of intimidation, I did not pursue this kind of opportunity.

The place of the event does not sound Greek to me. I have gone there two years ago to watch the play “Ang Palasyo ni Valentin.” The only problem is that I do not know how to go there. And to sum it all up, I have a bundle of excuses.

Because of this defeat, I want to see it that the next time around that an opportunity comes, I would not be reluctant on grabbing it. Well, especially if it involves arts, be it performing or literature. Two weeks from now, I am joining my third year high school English teacher, together with her students and Earlmond, on watching “Romeo and Juliet” on Megamall. Two weeks after that, Shiela, a good friend of mine since high school, will have her lead role on a theater play on PUP. I am not going to let those events just pass by.

Opportunities are opportunities. And, mind you, passion is passion. I am fooling myself if I appear to be having no interest on theater at all.
