Placement exam. It was such a big deal all week long.
Here and there, people continuously tried to discourage me from taking English major – not me in particular but everyone planning to take up English.
As they put it, “stampede” na nga daw sa English.
I don’t mind and I fret not.
This is my dream. I will be the one to fulfill this dream.
I understand their concerns though.
Still, I don’t mind and I fret not.
For a dreamer, it doesn’t matter how many people dream the same dream as you do nor how far the finish line is.
I am a dreamer myself. That’s why I’m willing to go through this what they call as “stampede.”
This stampede is the path I want to travel – as much as I want to take the road less traveled, I can’t. Because my heart does not belong there.
