It’s been a year since I transferred to St. Paul Rd. A lot has happened but it feels like I’m back to square one. It just feels like it but I know I’ve grown. I’ve changed. For better? For worse? I’m not so sure. I’d like to believe that it’s for the former.

I’m going home to Bataan this weekend and I will think about those changes and the realizations I’ve made in the past 365++ days.

In  the meantime, let me share this poem written for me for 26th birthday.

J, wherever you are, I know we aren’t friends anymore (and we may never be friends at all) but I’d like to thank you and give you a bonecrushing hug  for the inspiration embedded in these words.

All directions are alright. You’re right.

I just prefer to move forward.
