Errol and I were supposed to have a Davao getaway last week but my parents, still being in the old school era, didn’t allow me to go since there were only the two of us. As the obedient daughter, of course I didn’t come. Errol still went and I’ve asked him to take lots of photos and send them to me while he went solo backpacking, which he did. 🙂
She unlocked the box by accident,
Was surprised by what’s inside;
She wished she never opened it,
Now haunted, hard to hide.
About two weeks before the deadline of University of the Philippines Open University’s (UPOU) application for its graduate school programs, I decided to take a leap of faith and give it a try. To cut the long story short, I applied, forwarded the requirements to UPOU’s headquarters in Los Banos, Laguna, and waited for the results.
The results page began posting names of the successful applicants beginning the last week of June until first week of July. At first I thought I didn’t make the cut because I kept on visiting the UPOU website and my name wasn’t on the list. But come July 1, 2017, I received an email from UPOU Admissions:
Your warmth, comforting,
Your voice, soothing,
Fire of passion,
I wrote this poem as a gift to a friend/colleague/boss.
Their story is truly inspiring, so I made an art out of it.
