I was stuck with this view for a good 120 seconds because Kuya didn’t beat the red light.
Thank you, heavens! Hallelujah!
While I could pass for someone who was “nakatanaw sa kawalan”, I was actually staring at this tall building, a view not so unfamiliar, wondering how much it costs to afford an address in such a prime location.
And then I freaked out in silence.
For a while I thought something was wrong with my head. Or is the ground shaking?
I thought that One Roxas Triangle is slowly, very slowly, tilting towards my direction.
“It’s moving! Hala! Why?”.
Red turns to Green.
And then I snapped out of my absurd imaginations in broad daylight.
I totally forgot that the earth revolves in its axis.
That said, Happy Graduation/Recognition/Moving Up Day, kids!
Stay in school. Do well in school.
Being at it or even finishing it with flying colours will not ensure you a bright future nor will it not ever make you forget the basics of Science, case in point ako, but know that there’s a reason why shortcuts never work and why going through the slow and sometimes painful process of education will do you more good than harm.
Even if you think it’s unnecessary.
Even if it will all make sense many years after.
And may your dreams come true.
