I’m getting a haircut. It’s out with the old and in with the new. So don’t be surprised if you no longer see me sporting the same curls that I’ve painstakingly tried to manage for the past few months.
I’ve been waiting to get that haircut since I saw split-ends emerging at the tips of my curly locks. But oh well, at least now the haircut would be very timely. Because along with this change in my appearance would come the change in my surroundings.
Summer. For me, summer officially came to it’s end during this night’s OMG (O may gimik). Sure, I’ve still got one preaching to transcribe tomorrow and I’ve still got to come up with more designs for the English World website. (Workaholic lang no?) but… Well, much of the SOD pipz will start leaving tomorrow and will start saying goodbye to summer.
Sigh. I guess I’m growing old. The next semester’s approaching and I’ll be back in the classroom. But, like last semester, I’ll be back as a teacher and not as a student. But, hey, I’ll still be back as a student of life.
Change. Change is inevitable. They say that the only thing that’s constant is change. And right now, I can
feel it in my bones that the next season will bring about a truckload of changes. We’ve already felt the some of the changes this summer, but next sem… it would be more real. Sure, ate patty and kuya ico are already off in Cambodia, Shiela ‘s at HP, Jake’s at Canon, Bina’s somewhere out there job hunting, Ate grak is somewhere over the rainbow…Yet… All of these would only probably sink in next semester.
We can not escape change. We could try to ignore it but we would just be fooling ourselves. The best that we could do is welcome the changes with arms opened wide, ready to accept whatever it may bring.
This is why I’m going to get a haircut. Because I want to dive in to the season of change. It’s alright if I wont be as pretty as before (harharhar). But hey. The haircut would be good for my hair. Not to mention my budget.
