1. Route Not Taken

    Route not taken, at a T-junction where you have to make a decision before you crash, to study or to work. I choose work over studies, it might seems like a foolish decision cause I choose not to continue my studies, but it’s a decision I make, the wiser decision I think it is, to walk to achieve my dreams. Work, as a fresh high school grad, I possibly couldn’t earn much compared to those who holds a Bachelor certificate, but in rare cases, you can get the amount of pay as they are getting, or more, for example, if you were to join as an Insurance agent and you achieve high sales, you might earn more than a fresh graduate with a Bachelor degree, or you can possibly join the Airline as a Flight Attendant ( What I’m gonna do) and travel to several places and get incentives and a better pay. There are many ways to earn money, or to get a stable job, but there’s also consequences that you need to pay, but either way, in my opinion, you should plan ahead, for your future, what do you want to do. I always point an end, and only figure out how to get there, just like driving. In the future, I want to start my own business, which is to own a cafe, from there, I plan out, whether to study and get a job, or to work so I can more working experience. I choose to work, that is because I see the pros and cons of studying and work. Which I think working life suits me more than being a student. There is no right or wrong living your life according to what you want, as long as you’re doing something helpful and leads you to your dream, you’re on the right track.

    So long, Nick!


  2. I get tired these days of trying to be a better person, trying to come out to look for work in hopes I can pay for my own expenses, although it’s an excuse for me just so I can be busy and quit study one day, but also, is to get over some social issues. Is it because of the place I’m in, the people around me, or is it because it’s my character? I try to ask myself now and then, why is it so hard for me to trust someone? Is it because they are not worth trusting, or do I just not trust people easily? I find it super hilarious when people come complaining to me about things I didn’t do, but they never look at themselves on things like what they never done, and being a hypocrite and make noise. I’m just tired, and I just wish I can leave, once and for all.


  4. Apparently, I’m currently trying my be to hit on this dude whom I find cute that works in Starbucks near my school.

    It all happen when my parents are out of town and I has no one to dine in with me for lunch so I asked my bestfriend, Michelle out to accompany me for lunch. She brought me to this place near her campus for Japanese. I didn’t expect much, but the food there was super delicious. After the meal and we were both rushing to head home from unexpected date/lunch, we pass through a Starbucks which has a banner promoting their latest drink, the Peppermint Mocha Frappucino. I was so tempted by it ‘cause I’m in love with mint and coffee, but I was running out of time due to the time given to spend together as I need to rush home to fix myself for the party at night, we didn’t happen to get any of it from that particular branch.

    After rushing back home from lunch and prepared myself up for the party tonight, I send my maid home and decided to try out the newly launched drink from Starbucks. There’s when all the drama started. As an ex-“honor student”, I used my calculation so that I don’t waste any of the fuel I just filled in the afternoon and decided to head to the other branch, which is nearer to my destination and get that drink of mine with Michelle.

    When I was at that branch, the first thing that triggers my excitement, wasn’t that drink, but it was the barista standing at the counter waiting to take my order. He has that charming smile and stands about 5’9”. I was so happy when I see his cute face, and I told Michelle that he is super cute and she agrees with me. The best thing is not about the drink, but is the conversation we had after the order talking about the Starbucks diary and the new Starbucks card. He makes the drink taste so much better and he also has a friend there too, who appeared to look straight from the top to bottom, so I didn’t give a second look at him after judging him by his physical appearance.

    I spent hours there, peeking and enjoyed being mesmerized by his cuteness, but I know I gotta leave for the party, which kinda spoil the atmosphere. So I left that place and head on to the party. Before I left that place, I looked at his name tag and saw his name, and though of searching him up through another barista who is  my senior in high school, but I couldn’t find any so I played with my luck and searched it by his English name, and bingo! I got to view his profile on Facebook and literally, stalked him like a pervert on the internet. It appears that we have few mutual friend, who are my bestfriend’s boyfriend and my high-schoolmate who is his junior in College. It was so much fun that I have an Adrenaline rush that makes me goes like “I MUST GO BACK LATER!” and I really did. I went with another bunch of friends after party to just get to know him better, or in another saying, stalk him. 

    The after party was great where I got myself an Iced Americano, which contains high content of caffeine, but helps me sleeps better, which I have no idea why. I gave a task to my friend to ask him about his working schedule and a little bit of his personal life. This is what I found out, he has graduated, and is a year older than me, and he is currently working for a designing company, and the best of the best is not getting to know him, but is to get his number! I showed my poker face by not caring much, but deep in my heart, I’m screaming out loud telling the whole world that my first mission has completed! Moreover, the other shocking part is that, the friend of his who looks straight and I thought he is straight, has a boyfriend who was spending time with the baristas inside when he drop by. All of us get the shocked of our lives because he don’t look gay at all but he turns out to be one, which means, I can hit on him, but too bad that he is already in a relationship and I would never want to break them apart. 

    If it wasn’t Michelle who brought me to have Japanese, I wouldn’t have knew there’s a new drink. If it weren’t that new drink they have, I wouldn’t want to head to Starbucks for it. And if it weren’t Starbucks, I wouldn’t have seen this cutie and have a massive love on first sight with him, not really love but more like an infatuation over him. Everything happened like it was planned, but who knows such coincident will be such great stuff and make my day so much better. Who would have ever expected? No one!
