look at me all grown up

i dont know why i was in such a hurry to grow up. i suppose having parents that were uber strict had something to do with that. growing up seemed like the only way out of the permisos and the curfews and the scolding.

i'm rid of those things now. well, most of the time anyway. scolding will always be a part of a parent-child dynamic i guess. walang p. anyway, the scolding these days is all about my hair and how i never brush it. my mom of course has a point there but its still annoying. and if i were actually not brushing my hair as a stand against women being treated as sex objects then id be quite insulted. of course thats not why i dont brush my hair. theres really no reason why i dont. i just simply forget that its one of the things i have to do is all. with solving the worlds problems crowding my already small brain, hair brushing will have to take a back seat.

anyway, i dont really have a point here. when i was younger i thought, no, i knew that when id get older, id have a point and it would be the right one. now that im older, i find that not only do i rarely have a point but that i dont really give a flying rats ass that i dont.

An open letter to the sun

God, you are such an over achiever sometimes.

And there really is no need to be. We know your powers. It's not like we can ever forget. Don't you remember how we all drew you as children? rays twice, thrice even, as big as your head. You know why? because we knew then exactly what we still know na. You are all about fire and heat but not just for fire and heats sake of course but for LIFE. Yebah!

So we appreciate everything that you do for us. For growing our plants, for drying our clothes, for keeping us warm, for brightening our days, for making us sweat and keeping us fit (okay maybe you havent done enough of this for me), for solar energy as an alternative source of power, for the occasional kaingins, etc etc. My point is, we know how important you are. Doing anything beyond what you're supposed to do just makes you a show-off, show-off.

Please please please chill naman ng konti.
