Ia��m writing this to you from the peak of my life a�� the end of the 1960a��s a�� in the hopes that when youa��re reading this, life is treating you well. Ia��m 25 years old and the events in the world this past decade have brought mixed feelings in my heart.
There have been very heavy events, not only in the world but also in our country. Discrimination in the world has been more rampant than ever; assassinations, wars, so much heart-wrenching happenings. One of the heaviest stories that Ia��ve heard over the past years is the plane crash of around twenty Filipino boy scouts and their officials who died on their way to Athens, Greece.
I did not expect to witness this much discouragement in our world in such a short amount of time. If I were, to be honest with you, all of this is stirring in my heart the need to do something for the greater good of others. No, I dona��t want to join the rallies that only want to make noise against the government. No, I do not want to be a go-with-the-flow kind of 20 years old. I want to use my life to make this dark world a better place. I hope that when youa��re reading this, there are less of these burdens.
On a lighter note, the Beatles made their way to the Philippines. The fan within me was screaming at the top of her lungs! I was so disappointed when they left so earlya�� Imagine expecting to see your future husband (Paul McCartney) and then having your heart crushed by disappointment! Tell me who the Paul McCartney is in your days, I would love to hear about him!
While my McCartney crush is a dream away, I have a much closer chance of my real life love interest. A certain Thomas has been making his presence known to me. Just last week, he sent over a basket of fruits for my family alongside seven letters that he wrote the one week we were away from one another. This morning he used his only phone call at work to contact me just to say a�?Good morninga�?. Oh, he sure knows how to steal my hearta��
I wonder how the process of courtship is like in your days. Nowadays, ita��s mostly about winning a girla��s heart through the mana��s effort and time. They really have to invest energy to get a a�?yesa�? from us ladies. Oh, the power we have! We must not give them an answer right away to see how committed they are to getting our answer. A number of suitors gave up their pursuit after a couple months, but my oh my. This Thomas. Ita��s been almost a year of weekly visits… He has not given up. He must be thinking for Valentinea��s as well. I hope he is the one.
Please do tell me how different life is in your days. I would love to know how times have changed over the years. Ia��m excited to hear your stories.
