one stupidity at a time won't hurt, will it?


While harking back into my old stuff, I saw my well-kept things that were given to me by my high school and college friends and some love letters I wrote [and was never delivered] and was written for me during my puppy love years. You know those things, I’m sure.


It’s funny because I hardly scan my old things for I don’t really have time to look at them one by one. But this time, I managed to examine each one of them, and it made me go back to my old, happy, blithe, worry-free days. How I love to bring back the memories of my good ‘ol days!


While reading those letters, I saw this one little brown envelope I’ve been keeping since forever. It was my very first pay slip. I got it when I was working as a student assistant at a library in our community college. I can still recall, it was from 9:00am-1:00pm, just before my classes starts. And yes, my first salary was a whopping P675.00 and that would be my allowance for I think, two weeks or so.


I remember I was not the type of student who would really care if I have money in my pocket. Money was never my problem because I can go to school without it. I used to bring my own food in school and I don’t really spend if it’s not necessary. I am so kuripot, I admit. It went on until I finished my Bachelor’s and Master’s Icekembular’s Degree.


But now that I have a real job and sure I’m earning way more than P675.00… I am still the same, haha. Kuripot pa rin ako and my friends already have learned to accept that fact. They know I won’t spend my money as much as I can. That’s why when they ask me to go out with them and I say “NO”, they won’t ask me again. They know I’d say the same thing.


I can’t explain exactly why I am like this but it gives me this awesome feeling when I get to save at least – if possible – 50% of what I’m earning. I don’t care if I don’t have the latest of the coolest stuff in the market. Wa aku pake. Maybe it’s psychological. I don’t know.


All I know is that I don’t want to be poor, ever again. :]

    • haha, bibigyan kita ng candy, buena mano sa pagbisita. hahahaha.. pero sa totoo lang, hindi talaga. mahal ang kendi, saka hindi rin ako kumakain ng kendi [at nagdahilan talaga] hahaha. Siguro after mo mag-school, magagawa mo ulit yan, basta ang gastos naman eh para sa needs mo, okay lang yun. :]

    • Bakit nga ba kuripot ang mga ilokano? haha. Nasanay lang kasi ako nang ganun. Di bale nang kuripot hindi naman poor. LOL. Eh sa totoo lang, tama lang kasi yung pera for the need, yun lang yun.
