I remember falling asleep in the middle of watching “Isn’t It Romantic” last night. Don’t get me wrong, I liked that Rebel Wilson played a fresh new character who wasn’t as obnoxious as all the other characters she played in the past. It was cute, however, I just came home dead tired from work and my body just automatically shuts down especially when there’s work the next day.
Then this morning I woke up from the scariest dream! I was in a BEAUTY PAGEANT!!!!!
I remember walking along other competitors looking literally minute, or they were all just gigantic! I also remember listening to the answer of contestant #1 (I was the 6th and the last to answer and I don’t know why we were all watching the first girl to answer her question).
The question was about politics, education or something related to both, then when I learned that I was the last to answer, I snapped out of it and woke up.
Then I asked myself a few questions before I concentrated on one which was “WHAT IS THE ESSENCE OF LIFE?”
After practicing a few times, I memorized my answer, if ever I would be asked this in the future.
Of course, there is the “thank you for that profound question!”
then off to “I believe that the true essence of life lies within our purpose. We all have different definitions of success and I believe that no amount of money, fame, glory and power can ever give you the fulfillment that living a life with a purpose can. Purpose will serve as the fire we ignite within our hearts and keep burning throughout our journey that is life so that even in the darkest moments, we can find our way back to the path that would lead us to our goals….Goals that shouldn’t revolve around achieving personal gains but in making a life beneficial for the people around us and the world we live in. And that my friends, is the essence of life…………AND I, THANK YOU!”
Then a few seconds after is where I go krumping! LOL!
Kidding aside, I concocted this answer in my brain a few seconds after I asked myself that question to see if I can easily formulate the answer had I been in a real pageant.
I also would love to answer how can you help the world with:
“I deeply believe in the fact that everyone who has attained any level of education all had hopes and dreams of fulfilling their duty to the world. And that duty is to give back to the world that has provided us with resources to attain our current statuses in life. What better way can we give back than to support environmental efforts and children’s dreams of education so that we can pass on these ideals to them and in turn continue to sustain a better world for the future generations.”
Sabay hiphop pose!
I was just proud to have thought of these answers that I practiced saying in my most articulate way in the dark early this morning. Then I was interrupted by 2 cats flirting outside my window, which I thought was a drunk neighbor or even scarier, a creature of the dark. Good thing, it was already 6 in the morning! My room was just too dark without the lights on, thanks to my soooooper opaque curtains!
Anyway, it’s ASH WEDNESDAY today! I should be able to go to Church today coz it’s mingaw day in Cebu, especially with the FMs attending the PAFP in Manila! And I’ll probably continue watching Isn’t It Romantic and the Umbrella Academy on Netflix!
