Dahil bagong taon, kailangan magbagong buhay.
Well, I think that should not be the case. If you want to change something about yourself, it should start any time of the year. Walang pinipiling oras o panahon. Hindi yung hihintayin mo pa mag New Year para magbago. If you feel there is a need for you to change your ways, you should start right away.
Nakisabay kasi ako sa uso. It’s not really a resolution, but recently, I tried to make amend with someone na I don’t know if I have accused falsely, or mistreated. Pinairal ko na naman yata kasi pagiging judgmental ko. Sorry about that.
I’m referring to R, the one who claims himself to be a poz too, and whom I have exchanged messages with.
This is just a sequel and probably the final installment of my conversation with the unlikely fellow.
me: Happy New Year!
R: Happy New Year din. Kumusta?
me: Okay lang. Pupunta ako sa RITM sa January 14. (Naisip ko na it wouldn’t be bad nga naman to “rub some positivity in him.” Kaya I told him my plan of going there.)
R: RITM??? (Too many question marks, not mine.)
me: Yup. Why?
R: Ano yun? (Again, gulat much lang here. Meron nga ba talagang ibang poz na hindi alam ang RITM? Please enlighten me.)
me: You’re R, right? (Baka iba na pala ka-text ko kaya hindi niya alam.)
Almost an hour later…
R: So ano yung RITM?
me: Ah, wala naman. Just some place I’d like to hang out soon. (Totoo naman, I’ll be visiting the place more often in the future.)
R: Hmm. Saan yun?
me: Somewhere in Alabang. Taga-saan ka na nga ulet? (Just to confirm if he’s really R.)
R: Sa may Blumentritt. (Yup, he is R.)
me: Oo nga, malayo sa’yo yun. (Didn’t know where I got this reply. Para lang siguro ma-correlate ko yung tanong ko sa kanya na taga-saan siya.)
R: Sino naman kasama mo pupunta? (I’d like to invite you sana para makapagpacheck-up ka na rin. Kaso, I’ve changed my mind about inviting you.)
I did not reply again. Until another hour has passed…
R: RITM pala clinic mo. Sana makasama ako kaso may class ako noon. (He might have "googled" and learned about it kaya he finally remembered he’s supposedly a poz too.)
Hindi na ako nagreply.
Hindi na ako nagreply.
Whether a poz or a "pozer," he’ll never hear from me again. Our boats will never really travel the same stream.
Talking about New Year resolutions and making amends. Haha!
