Why is it that everybody seems to be in a hurry? Why do we need to do things as quick as we can? These are the questions that often linger in my head before i fall asleep at night.
Come to think of it my life has been quite a race the moment i became a college student. Most of the time, i find myself striving to finish my tasks in the shortest time possible. I even hurry eating my supper just to save time.
I remember when i was little, i used to spend most of the time having fun; playing black-one-two-three, bang-sak, tumbang preso, agawan base, langit lupa and all the outdoor Filipino games that you could ever imagine. We seized the day.
However, times have changed. Now that i am already in the tertiary level, things have become serious. I admit that whenever i lay in bed at night i can’t help it but feel sad and lonely. I miss the old days. The only thing that mattered for me before was my own happiness.
Oh, how i wish all things would just slow down! I wish that i would still be able to laugh as loud as i can whenever a friend cracks a joke. I wish i would still feel the curiousity and wonder that of a child’s. I want to be mesmerized by simple things. For instance, seeing a rainbow after the rain and just saying, wow it’s beautiful.
