To My Future Zing

You’ve been given the opportunity to send one message to one person you wouldn’t normally have access to (for example: the President. Kim Kardashian. A coffee grower in Ethiopia). Who’s the person you choose, and what’s the message?

To My One and only Zing (Who is Nowhere To Be Found Yet),

I know this is a silly thing to do but I just want to let you know how I am doing right now so you can have a glimpse of what you’re future wife would be.

I’m currently working as a Customer Care Specialist on one of the best Business Process Outsourcing in the country. As to the reason why I am here, this is really a long story and I will do my best to keep it short and private – which means I won’t mention names of Institutions and of people connected to, your future wife, and that is me.

First, I regret to inform you this, but I was unable to graduate with my course on time. I should have graduated with the rest of my batch-mates last March 2014, only I, and some of my schoolmates, did not make it. I took up Bachelor of Science in Accountancy with a positive mindset that I will bring home my diploma with pride, because none of my older siblings was able to finish schooling. That I will give my parents the honor that they truly deserve from the very beginning. That I will take the board exams this coming October with confidence and complete faith. That 2014 will not end without the three-letter-word being added to my name, CPA. It was like I was in the middle of crossing a bridge that moment, one mistake, and the bridge that leads ahead will collapse. And it did. But I accepted the fact that I wont graduate on time right away. I did not cry. Not a single tear fell from my eyes upon hearing the (terrible) news. However, while I’m on my way home, I planned for the best approach that I will do in informing my parents. Saying sorry to my parents, who did their best just so i can go to school, was the hardest part of all. Since I am that kind of person who is not so used with the drama in life, as much as I can avoid, I don’t like crying in front of people (that should give you an idea that I’ll try very hard not to cry in front of you, someday). I can hold it for a day, or a week, and to tell you the truth in this case, I didn’t cry for almost 8 months in a row (imagine that?).

Don’t get me wrong, I still have that goal in mind, be a CPA and improve our way of life. I just decided to work first because we (that is to say my family and I) were in the midst of financial crisis (like the rest of the world, according to the news). So I had to do something while I’m waiting what the Higher Ups (in school) were planning to do for us. while working, I’m studying on my own. Self-reviewing, as how they call it.

Fast-forward to this day, I just received news that we will be given (and this is 100% confirmed) a Mock Board exam that will give us a chance to finish our beloved course this year. This was good news, of course. It only means that I’ll have a chance now to prove myself once more.

Sorry, if you find this message not helpful. It’s not even a message related to you or to the future “us” at all. It’s all about me. Heck, I can’t even explain it very well. Anyway, wherever you are right now, if you see me, please, do not approach me yet. My life is still under construction. I would appreciate it more if you will arrive at the time I am ready both physically and mentally.

Does this makes sense?

Your One and Only Zing,

Jill ♥

  1. Jillian! 🙂 It’s okay. You know CHAR? That’s a Visayan term for like ‘wow’ (but not really that, I just can’t find the right word as of the moment) and the like. One time, our prof said the word, I remember him saying this way: “If you fail, just say CHAR.” And we laughed, because that’s not really the apt word to say. But then he revealed the meaning – Christ Has A Reason. And we went like speechless.

    Wow, you have such a fighting spirit. Keep it up! 🙂

    And hey, this “Anyway, wherever you are right now, if you see me, please, do not approach me yet. My life is still under construction.” made me smile. Hahaha. I’ve told my virtual friend that (tho not the exact words). XD

    Wishing you the best things in life,

    PS Have a blessed day! 🙂

    • Thanks for the information! My best friend in college speaks Visayan (she grew up in Pagadian City) and has always told me that she was surprise that people from Luzon says “CHAR”. I am thrilled to give her the meaning. 🙂

Let me hear your thoughts, too. :)
