I really love music as long as it sounds nice and as long as it has a bit of meaning behind it.
Here’s a song that I found on the interwebs:
I feel electrified when I hear the song!
Speaking of being electrified, I met Death in the face when I tried to charge my tablet at a socket in the guesthouse that I’m staying in. I could clearly see the electric current inside the charger and the air suddenly reeked of ozone.
Thank God my reflexes were quite fast that day. Believe me when I say that it was a live event, considering that there were quite a number of people in the room.
Mr. Mikail said the following after the said event:
“For years, we’ve been putting stuff in that socket, but this is the first time it has happened. Something’s different with you.”
I also really wonder why some things have to be different when it comes to my life. Yeah, sure, my life is unique, but then, there are times that it just gets out of control.
This year’s going to be electrifying. I said that it will be a hype train back at the beginning of the year and I guess I lived up to the hype in my own sort of way.
Even if it meant that I have to learn some things the hard way.
Okay, now I am an elementary teacher and I have scratched my head during the first day of my work.
I realized that I need to step up my physical appearance, not just for the job that I am in, but to prove to the rest of the world that I can clearly take care of myself…and that I value myself highly.
Then, I noticed that I needed to adapt to the new environment (that I’ve got myself in) and that I needed to stop being noisy and talkative.
Within a few days, I learnt how to do all of the stuff that “normal people” do. Sure, it looked great on me, but at the same time, I felt like I was undergoing a freaking metamorphosis that may redefine me once again.
I guess that is the awakening that real life is giving me and I just hope that it gets better.
It is actually my first long stay here in the capital. Some things are expensive and some of the things that I want are basically unattainable, at least in the short term.
There are many interesting places and spots that I want to see: after all, I want to see how it all works out as I go through my first year of “real life”.
One thing is for sure: There is almost zero room for mistakes now. A person has basically three strikes before all hell breaks loose and I don’t want to use all of those three chances at once.
Many things aren’t the same anymore, but I know that I can adapt if I stay strong and if I focus on the things that I need tgo do.
Well, I don’t miss Turkish food at all.
But I certainly miss many of the good memories that I have experienced especially in my last two years in Turkey.
If I ever get a chance to go back to Turkey (or to go elsewhere), I would certainly want to grab that opportunity.
Someone mentioned that being a teacher at a Turkish high school here in the Philippines is not easy.
I’d bet that notion is true, so I guess what I need to do is to make a lot of things work out – before I get booted sooner or later. in fact, the guy told one of my friends that “you will only last a maximum of two years before you tap out.”
I’m lucky to have a back line in case sh*t becomes real. I just hope that my friends also have that kind of fallback.
Because you will never know when the hammer hits you in the face.
Some of those who read may ask why in the world I don’t hype things too much anymore.
The truth is, I want to have a look at things in a positive way, but sometimes, people get tired.
My last year in Turkey brought me to the very limit of my patience.
I don’t want people to experience the “gray and black” stuff that we did back there.
If not for my friends at school and my “job” as a “writer”, believe me, I would have tapped out a long time ago.
I’d like to end this long wall of text by saying that I am looking forward towards having a constructive experience in life.
I don’t want to reach the age of 30 without having done anything substantial in this world, so I really, really want to learn right now and hope that I will be able to apply everything to the best of my ability.
Unless I get totally wrecked, I’ll keep on believing!
