I Made My Sister Cry

Posted by -edz- on 10:05 PM in , ,
Well, sorry I didn't really make her cry. I'm not that witch type of sister that people usually see on TV. Here is what happened:

I woke up early today to join my job orientation. Just when you think that would be a really exciting activity, I was there for 10 hours!!! Yes, 10 HOURS of orientation!!! How exhausting can that get, right? Good thing they pay us for the hours that we were there or my companions and I would have rallied and protested. So after a really exhausting day I had to spend a couple more minutes with errands before finally driving back home. Of course my loving family didn't eat dinner yet because they were waiting for me. I dozed off for a bit while waiting for my siblings to finish setting the table. During dinner my sister asked me if I have work during Saturdays and Sundays and I said yes. And she got sad because she thinks I have been so busy lately that we had very little time to talk to each other. My mom said I could come with them to the movies this Saturday since I will get of work early. But I refused to. As much as I love movies, I have to study for the two exams I have for Monday. Then tears fell on my sister's cheeks as she said that she's okay since she once got used to the life of not being with me. And I saw my mom's frustration as she dropped her head when she knew I can't go with them again.

Just so you know, last Saturday, they all went out for movies from 1 in the afternoon until 10 in the evening. It was part of our father's day weekend but I did not go with them.

To my family:
Although I don't really need to work while attending school, I want to. I want to help the family by supporting and financing my own education and other expenses. It's okay, I know I have been away for 5 years since I was 12 (until 2 years ago when we moved together). You didn't see me grow and fight for the values you have instilled in me when I was little. I don't want to say "you'll get use to it like you once did" and I won't. Just remember that all I'm doing is for you. It is not really my responsibility but that's how much I love you. You don't have to ask for me to give.

Where Have I Been?

Posted by -edz- on 10:44 PM in , ,
1. I am taking summer classes to speed up my major.
2. I got my official driver’s license a couple of weeks ago (no longer a permit). Hence, I now hold the responsibility of driving myself to school, to work, and to wherever else I need to go to. That's an additional responsibility that eats up my time. I spend about 30 minutes driving from home to school and another 30 minutes back. That does not include the drive to and from work yet.
3. Before getting my license, I used to make my dad my personal driver. Now that I got my license, my siblings are making me their personal driver.
4. I have a new part time job, thus, that's another 24 hours of my week (minimum).
5. The past two weeks was spent preparing requirements for my new job. (Hassle, really!)
6. I still review my sister for her upcoming Math proficiency exam and my youngest brother with his daily homework. So, daily, when I get home I am not greeted with “rest” just yet but with more tasks. (That’s what I get for being the eldest.)
7. From time to time my other brother still bugs me to teach him how to play guitar. And every time he asks I give him the same responses – "I am busy", "I have an exam to study for," or "I'm writing an essay/research paper." (I guess he just has to wait ‘till I graduate. Haha!)
8. The top two questions people ask me all the time are "How are you?" and "How is your love life?" Here are my answers to that, which by the way are the same 99 % of the time: "I am okay, thank you for asking" and "I am too busy for that."
9. I have exams, quizzes, and practicals every day! Talk about the pleasures of summer school.
10. Writing all the updates above makes my mind go crazy.
11. As I am writing this I am memorizing stuff for my test which is in an hour from now.
12. I now have two blogs, both of which I struggle to maintain since I am too busy with my other life. (Do I even have a life?)

So that explain it my co-bloggers as to why I have been absent from the blogging scene for the past couple of weeks. I have been doing so many things with the thinking that I am invincible to sickness. But I was wrong. Even superheroes get tired and sick. Haha.

Edz's react:
So watch out whenever you go to the bank on Fridays.
And you can always use "Abracadabra" when making a little child feel you healed their boo-boo.
