Family is somehow one of the best gifts God has given to mankind. They are the only persons who understand, love and care for you no matter what. They will always be there for you when the rest of the world leaves you. And I am so thankful because God has endowed me the best family whom I can say is my inspiration in everything I do.

But yesterday, my mom cried in front of me and I can't just endure the pain whenever I see those liquid crystals flowing from her eyes. She's hurting. I don't wanna detail out what really happened but it's between her and dad. I have only seen them fight once. It was hard for me to digest all those words that my mom uttered because I am a daddy's girl ever since. I was hurting too and yes, I cried. I can't help it. Whenever I see her crying, I cry, as well. Just to give you a little information, it has something to do with money. So yeah, if the entire world is in recession right now, my family is experiencing it too.

Last night, I was chatting with a friend whom I consider as my Best Bud. I opened up. You know what I asked him? "Bakit pa kasi nauso ang financial problem eh?" I'm just too glad because I have friends like him, Dyei and Unjeh whom I can open up all my problems with. He was just telling me that maybe my dad was just stressed out or pressured. He assured me that everything will be okay so I have to cheer up. You know what I really like about him is that whenever I need him, he's always there. I don't know if he has this so-called spider sense but I'm so happy that he's around. For the past weeks, we have never kept in touch that's why when he buzzed me last night, I was surprised. Perhaps, he felt it.

I may not have the perfect family but I consider them as the best. With all those sacrifices and hardships that they had in the past just for them to give me the good life, I guess, it's time for me to return the favor. I must look for a job already. I want to give them a good life, something that they truly deserve. I want to take care of my parents the way they took good care of me and my brother.

I hope the problem between my parents will be settled down as soon as possible. Though I know my dad a lot. He will never let the problem pass by without solving it. He is a family man and I know how much he loves us especially my mom. I just hope and pray that everything will be okay. I just can't wait for it because my mom's birthday will be on Tuesday.

I also wish that once I turn twenty, several opportunities will finally come my way. I can't wait to work. I'm excited, in fact. I have plans for my family and for myself and I want to fulfill all of those very soon.

It has been my routine everytime I'm getting online to first check the Yahoo! headlines, my Yahoo! Mail, Plurk, Twitter, Multiply and Facebook. While I was reading the headlines of Yahoo a while ago, a news caught my attention with the title "U.S. News' rankings of America's best colleges."

And yes, Harvard University in Massachusetts and Princeton University in New Jersey are America's best colleges of 2010. Two of the eight Ivy League schools are tied for the first place. Ranking in third is another Ivy League school which is the Yale University.

Know what, it is really my ultimate dream to study at any of the eight Ivy League schools. I guess, it is everyone's dream but only few are privileged enough to study in those world-renowned universities. And I know that I will never have the chance to study at any of the Ivy League schools. It will remain as a dream forever.

Actually, right now, I am very confused. I actually don't know what I really want to do. I've been reflecting lately and the idea of becoming a pre-school teacher suddenly popped out. I love kids ever since. Although I easily lose patience but when it comes to them, it is really a different thing. I would love to bond, teach and play with them.

You might be confused as well because I finished college with a degree in IT and yet I want to pursue a career related to child development. Even me, I really don't know what's going on my mind. Perhaps because I've been a bum for many months now. Another thing that really bothers me is the fact that I want to go to school again not to pursue a Master's Degree in IT but with a different course.

I want to do a lot of things. I want to try new things which include careers with no relation at all. I want to become a Systems Engineer (IT-related), pre-school teacher and even establish my own clothing line and restaurant. It's just that I don't know what I really want and if I wanna pursue all of those, I don't know where to start. It is really confusing.

Perhaps, I need some time to reflect on what I really want but most likely it's either becoming an IT professional or a pre-school teacher. And yes, my mom didn't like the idea of me becoming a teacher. Hehehe :))

I was away for one week but not really away, actually. I was in Las PiƱas for a vacation and to tutor my two cousins, as well. Nothing much happened except for non-stop bonding and laughtrip. I had good times with Mama Lolly, Daddy Rap-rap, Ninang Carina, Reina, Celine, Claudine and Stephen.

Last night, we were in SM Mall of Asia to meet Celine's best friend. We strolled around MOA with Issa. Afterwhich, we met the rest of the guys at Racks. We went directly to Fields because Ninang Carina and Daddy Rap-rap were inquiring about the condo unit. So yeah, we just stayed there for quite a long time while hearing our stomachs producing unwanted sounds. Hahaha :))

After that, we dropped by Team Manila and Ninang Carina bought us tote bags. Thanks for that! :D We had our super late dinner at North Park. We actually arrived home at around 12am because of traffic. Hays.

Today, we first dropped by the cemetery to visit Inang, Amang and Tita Helen then off we went to Kuya Jojo's new house. It is his birthday today, by the way. He had a mini celebration. Yummy foods. :) I really had a good conversation with Ate Alex. Too bad, we went home early.

And now, I'm back in Manila. I missed my family, the place, my laptop and everything. :) Ninang Carina is actually encouraging me to extend my stay but unfortunately, I will go to Quezon City on Tuesday. And yes, they will be here on Tuesday and she was asking me if I want to go with them again. I'm still thinking about it.

Sweet, isn't it? And yes, I'm kinikilig again. Hahaha :) I dunno why I always get kilig whenever I see pictures of them. Perhaps, because they look so good together. :)

Anyways, do wish me the best of luck on Tuesday. Hope everything will be fine. :D
