This entry is NOT an attempt to join the bandwagon as 1.) this is loooong overdue (imagine, the old officemate I was referring to on my last entry is back again for another vacation); 2.) the most recent controversy, as per my selective current affairs radar, is the Hayden Kho-Katrina Halili sex video scandal. This entry will demonstrate how I had matured since my last post.
Remember my take-home thoughts from Bohol (see the 02.11.08, Sunday Samhain, 14:04 entry)? My recent trip to Camiguin proved that there’s another issue this country continues to overlook. With the not-so-recent controversy about the cat killer in the University of the Philippines and this heartbreaking blog entry about a dog’s demise on Cebu Pacific, it is rather appropriate to state that animal rights violation also takes form in tourism-related merchandises.
5 years ago, I was busy being depressed during a team building in Baguio City. My mind was completely somewhere else. My soul felt stifled and determined to start chasing my dreams. I was pitted among these options: pursue graduate studies, migrate to Baguio City and start my media career or move to Cebu City and spend my weekends traveling. You know what I chose.
This time around, the same extent of depression is starting to drown me. I have 3 questions again: 1.) Should I still continue with my MA degree?; 2.) Isn’t it high time for me to leave the call center industry for a more rewarding entry to the marketing or museum realm?; 3.) Why not fly to New Zealand to gather material for my loooong overdue travel writing career?
I seriously envy those who can resign in a heartbeat and shrug off when asked, “What next?”. While I allow practical reasons to decide for myself, some people have faith. I’m so exhausted and saturated with my reality! But then again, don’t I always try to escape from this sickening reality? “Takbo ako nang takbo!”. Always off to Nowhere. How immature, eh?
