Eidul Adha Day 2
This is another personal post. :)
The Second day was not so jampacked with schedules. I woke up feeling lightheaded and having this feeling of getting sick, but nothing serious. It was raining last night when I came home, and guess who never brings any umbrella? Yes you guessed right, it was me alright haha.
I actually planned on spending the whole day reading or writing in Bubblews.com but due to my not-so-well feeling and the on-and-off wifi, I was not able to do much; until my uncle called me, and asked if I could meet him.
He was in Manila for the Bar Ops. I just remembered that it was actually the start of the Bar examinations and my uncle, a 3rd year Law student in Zambales is helping out in the bar ops. I went out to meet him, we had lunch together and the usual debates and discussions followed haha. Yeah, sorry we do that often. It’s a family hobby. LOL, just kidding, it was only between the two of us. Politics, law, history, family legends, personal lives (even marriage!) and even the little trivial things as why “Mapapel” is called that way (It’s a Tausug expression of arrogant, boastful people). He also gave me reading assignments to increase my “views” in life. He recommended I read these two books: “Art of War” by Sun Tzu and “The Prince” by Nicolo Machiavelli. Anyone got a summarized version of these? haha
Me and my awesome uncle Benn. Did I mention he already have 2 degrees aside from the current Bachelor of Liberal Law he is taking? He is a Registered Nurse and PO1 (PNP Police) as well. Yeah, talk about diverse professions. From my father’s side, we are the only TWO individuals taking higher education (MD and LLB) in our clan who came from family of nothing but farmers. I have one statement to this: “We challenge the status quo”.
And that’s how I spent my second day of Eid :)
