the deal was:
I find a job in LA, we stay in LA.
I find a job in the Valley, we move to the Valley.
With my luck so far as a new grad, LA has been the only one that has given me opportunities to start my career.
& so, we stay in LA.
Just me and my Superman.
I guess I’m meant to be out here.
Away from my childhood.
Away from things that keep me from growing.
Away from distractions.
Sadly away from my family, but just a good ‘ol 15 minute drive and I’m back home.
Why am I such in a hurry to grow up?
Because my dearest mom & dad are tired.
They’re getting older day by day,
& I owe it to them to make them proud.
They are hardworking people and
I want everyone to know that even when they’re gone.
I am a reflection of my parents,
& I will make sure to be a good one.
You’ll eventually reach a point in your life where you just stop caring because you’ve realized who’s worth the effort and who’s not. If someone in your life begins to slip away, let them go. If they wanted to stay they would’ve held on.

Uber excited for what the future holds! Everything just feels like its on the right track, you know? Ive accomplished one of my biggest goals right on time and Ive made my parents proud! Nothing feels greater than that! My dad’s wrinkled tired hands are finally retiring in the Philippines in about two months and he made me promise to take care of my mom and younger brother when he does. My parents have been separated since I was in the 8th grade and I find it so sweet of him to still think of my mom before he leaves. I still have a little more waiting to do, but soon enough, my journey as an “adult” will begin. Although the “bills” part of adulthood has already been sailing, Ill still keep a positive outlook on it.
Im turning 22 next month and people my age are usually out and about having all sorts of fun .. Parties. Clubs.
Drugs. Drinking. Boys. Girls. Kids. They make my life seem so lifeless and boring buuut, I wouldnt have it any other way. I guess MY idea of fun is just a little different from theirs .. Im all about chasing my dreams, Surrounding myself with positive ambitious people, Trying to be a good influence, Giving back, Making people smile. It gives me joy and it just feels great. It has its ups and downs, but at least Im guaranteed its leading me somewhere good.
Kristine Manalad, LVN. I worked hard for those 3 little letters at the end of my name and Im proud to wear it. Im looking forward to starting my career and adding more letters onto my name. Bigger and better things are coming my way and Im not letting anyone or anything stop me now. What can I say? Im a “reach for the sky!” kind of person.
I dont even know what this post is about anymore. ahh, goodnight folks.
