What if one day your parents say that they’re sending you to Australia where you will finish your studies and that there’s this contract that says you’ll devote your post-graduate life to work in an Australian institution?
Of course to me, it’d seem too sudden and I would be dumbstruck. Are you guys serious, I’d ask. Well, my family hasn’t entirely set out the details and I don’t really know if it’s going to happen or not, but, as much as some people might say that this would be a great opportunity to study and earn overseas, I really don’t think that would be good for me. Like I said, I wanted to graduate with my best friend here, in the Philippines, and achieve our goals together. She wants to start a magazine and I want to establish a cafe. She wants to be a part of the entertainment press and I want to be an editor for a publishing company (and also publish a novel of my own). Australia is vague. Japan, no, because I did dream of working (or just visiting) that country. Aside from that, idealistic as it must seem, I want to be of use to my country. I am a Political Science student, and though I am not quite passionate of my major, I still want to be a useful citizen and contribute to the wasted government I am in.
