Venting Out


That moment when you get firsthand experience of how life can get so unfair. This is just too much. I’ve been doing my job, all the tasks needed from me. It should be about the end-product. It should be about the final outcome. What has been happening?

I don’t get this crappy company at all. This is just crap. Crap. Crap. Crap. All I can say is crap because I don’t want to curse or utter profanities just because I’m too mad right now. This crappy environment, this crappy workload, this crappy wage, all these are just stupid.

I know, I’m not supposed to let things get the better of me. But I just have to let this steam off or else I’m definitely going to explode. This is stupid. This. All these crap. Doesn’t make sense at all. How can they treat their employees like this?

Crappy work. Ugh. I need to get out of here!

A First For Me: Solo Travel


Liberating. That's how I felt when I went on a solo backpacking trip to Sagada. I've been planning this since last year and finally it pushed through. So many thoughts were running through my head after arriving at the station to ride a bus headed for Baguio - my gateway to Sagada.


"Can I really do this alone?"

"What if something bad happens to me?"

"What if my pocket money is not enough?"

"Will I enjoy on my own?"


After the recent bus accidents on the news, my family was really scared to let me go. But they did not object though. It's like a silent protest but still I pushed through with my plans.

It was a different kind of rush. The moment the bus left the station, I felt like "this really is happening!" I'm really going to a far away place on my own, with nothing but my thirst for adventure and my determination to not give up on myself.


What was it like to go on a trip alone?

It was different. For one, you don't have to worry about anyone else aside from yourself. You make decisions based on yourself only. You eat where you want to, when you want to, what you want to. You have total control of the time.

You'll also learn to be brave. Because that's the only choice you have considering you're on your own now. And me being an introvert and painfully shy person, that was a real challenge. Asking questions, for example, took more courage from me than most people. But thankfully, I somehow managed to overcome my fear of talking to people.

Liberating. It felt like a challenge but at the same time a privilege as well. Going on a solo trip, not many people can do that. And thinking that I did it is enough for me believe in myself more. To believe that I can do it. I can do anything if I really put my mind on it. If I trust myself more.

I'm happy I made this trip. It's a memory I will forever cherish in my mind. I hope to go on other solo trips in the future.
