commit, meant…

when i say i commit, i meant it. no turning back.

i thought of sharing with you my life, my pains, my struggles, my happiness, my joys starting today. i always believed that we have our own stories to tell — and that each story is unique.

other than the pictures i’ve shared with you in my previous blogs, its right time for me now, to go into details about my life.

gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, transexuals, ladies and gentlemen… (open curtains), here is the story of my life.

first chapter

i would say that life is full of challenges. without it, life would be boring.

i have been thru a lot of hardships in life most especially with money. i worked my way up to finish college. i moved from one university to another. one course to the other. i worked part-time, full-time, seasonal employment, name it, i did all sorts.

my batchmates in elementary and high school already earned their degrees while i was still struggling to live each day and survive. i first took physical therapy in college because for one i can survive in a medical course and second it will open up doors for me in the united states that will pull out my family from poverty. but i was not able to push through because we cannot afford to pay the tuition fee. the company where my siblings worked closed down. my parents withdrew my scholarship from the insurance company even before i graduated high school. they added the money to our struggling business in mindanao. i only took one promising semester of pt and transferred to another private university after a year. yes, i parked for a year.

i was a diligent student in high school and disciplined my way up the graduating class. i graduated with honors. but i have so much discouragement on my part knowing that my family cannot consistently afford to send me to the university despite working very hard in high school. i pity myself but i never complained.
