(This was my homework in my Sociology class. I decided to post it here just for the feels lol)
Hi! The name’s Awee. I’m not good at introducing myself so please bear with me. I’m just your everyday normal guy who lives with his family and goes to school every day. I’m the kind of person who can’t live without the internet. I’m also a nerd myself, especially with comic books, movies, TV series, video games, technology, and the like. I like to listen and make music as well. Before you can know me clearly, let’s start off with my childhood.
My childhood was vague but still, it was very special to me. It was the reason why I became who I am today. When I was still little, my parents raised me and my sister very strictly and taught us to be religious in the confinements of our home. They taught us the values needed in the outside world even though we were still young. Even though they were strict in raising us, they were the best parents a kid could ever have.
I grew up as a naughty, shy but sweet kid who loves to intimidate his sister and play outside in the sun with his friends. I was a fast learner back then, learning how to read, write and count at a very young age. I didn’t really care about the world until I started school. My early days at school was okay since I was one of the “bibo” kids at school. Teachers always compliment me on how the way I look and act and also how the way I talk to people. But, it was hard for me to make new friends since I was shy. That was then when I reached Elementary; it was the start of my living nightmare. I was frequently bullied by my classmates from time to time. I developed the trauma of being oppressed by other people. From then on, I preferred to be a silent kind of guy. I was invisible. This lasted until I was starting high-school. This is where my adolescence was taking over.
In my high-school days, I obtained bad habits such as being tardy, not studying well, being irresponsible and so on. High-school was a hard time for me because it was like living in a new world. It was so hard blend in with people around since most students were raised in a well-off environment. The bullying from other students escalated also. I didn’t have real friends since most of my friends back then were just using me. I was so desperate for everyone to like me. I developed depression. I was failing every subject I had because of depression. I come home from school everyday feeling worthless. A good for nothing piece of trash. I grew unreligious even though I was studying in a catholic school. To sum things up, I was a wreck. Even though, I was still faithful to God. I prayed every night hoping that the nightmare I was living to end. Good thing though, my prayers were answered. In my junior year, things were getting good for me. I made some real friends to rely on, I was getting good grades, people recognized me by how good I play the guitar, people were starting to respect me, but most of all I gained inspiration because of my high-school sweetheart. She made me a better person. She was the reason I chose to be better. Even though we were not meant for each other, she was still a good friend I deserved. I graduated with good grades even though I didn’t have any awards. Still, my parents were very proud of me.
When I started going to college, I was culture shocked again. There were many types of people comparing to my previous school. Making new friends was not a problem this time because the environment was friendlier. I was more responsible. Still as of now, I don’t have any failing grades. I now budget my allowance better. I have friends who like me for who I am. The downside though is due to peer pressure, I started to do vices occasionally. I am not very proud of it but nonetheless, what I’m proud of is that I still haven’t used drugs. I am now on self probation on vices because I know that it’s a bad thing for me to do.
If I were to be asked if what I am now, I would say that I became a good son, brother, friend, and a student after all. I am very grateful to my family, my friends, and especially God for being the man I am today.
No more Froot Loops. Naubos na pala namin ni ate. WTF NOOOOOOOOOO.
I have problems. Problems about:
Hindi ko na alam ang gagawin ko. Kung idadaan ko ba sa tulog, sa kain, o kung ano man ang pwedeng gawin. One thing for sure is I’m pretty messed up right now. Buti nalang nandyan si Lord to keep me sane.
Oh well, kakain nalang ako ng Froot Loops.
