Time passed really quick. Parang kailan lang ay kinakabahan pa ako dahil hindi ko alam kung papasa ba ako dito sa Lopez University dahil gustong gusto kong kunin ang course na tourism. I was worried that if I failed, I would be stuck as my parents' puppet. Kung hindi ako pumasa, baka ay umiiyak na ako ngayon dahil hindi ko natupad ang pangarap. But, it was the opposite.
Here I am, smiling proudly. I passed the entrance exam. I passed the scholarship exam. Kahit na pinalayas at inabanduna ako ng magulang ko, I always had my cousin, Solara.
But, why am I looking around. Bakit sinusubukan kong hanapin ang mga pamilyar na mukha nila. My wishful thinking was having my parents here in my graduation. I want to see them looking at me proudly, kahit na imposible.
I blew a deep breath, closed my eyes tightly before opening them again. I flashed a proud smile.
