I was supposed to graduate this year. Centennial grad dapat ako sa Diliman. I've seen pictures of my ex-blockmates and other UP friends and I'm really happy to see them donning the sablay, wearing their white dresses/barongs, and flashing their prettiest smiles. A number also graduated with honors.
I thought I will feel a tinge of jealousy and/or sadness but I was surprised that all I felt was happiness for them. Siguro nga, I'm already okay. When I remember UP, I don't think about how much I wanted to be there anymore. Instead, lessons that I learned comes to mind. I don't question why I am here anymore.
