Maundy Thursday morning

Hey guys. I’ve just been staying home all week. I was supposed to go out with my classmates yesterday because it was Erik’s birthday but my parents didn’t allow me. So it’s been really boring.

Today is my mom’s birthday. She’s growing less younger every year. So am I… I mean it’s scary. Come to think of it, I’m going to college next year and before I know it, I’ll have my own life. Wah. I feel like I’m still a kid.

So we’re going on visita iglesia in a bit. I just heard that my parents are planning to check us in a hotel for the weekend, for the sake of staying in a hotel this summer. They don’t have any plans of taking us out of the country this summer. Just a short vacation at Puerto Galera this May. And then my dad wants to immerse me at the isolation of his provincial hometown with my grandfather for one whole week so I could get to know the townspeople and learn how to manage and harvest the coffee and fruits, and those kinds of stuff. Para daw maranasan ko yung mga dinaanan n’ya as a boy. I don’t know if it has something to do with my being the eldest male in my generation in a patriarchal clan. No qualms, I’d be willing to do that. So I better get ready.
