Itaewon Class E09

Really, this episode, this series, they’re teaching us how to be brave, how to not let the wrong win in life.

We can be brave.

We can win against them.

We just have to stand up and make it happen, no matter how long and difficult it takes.

I hate seeing you cry or upset because of money. Hang in there, mom. We’ll get through this one day.

Near Future

I’ll make sure it’s worth the long wait.

I’ll make sure it’s worth the chances I didn’t take.

I’ll make sure it’s worth the people I had to hurt.

I’ll make sure it’s worth the people I couldn’t fight for.

This time, I’ll make sure of it.

Direction

Hearing, “Ate, gusto ko magmed,” (Translation: Sister, I want to study medicine) this morning just instantly shifted my life’s direction.

It’s a dream I’ve never let go; just put on hold. Now, it’s my sister’s dream, too. I’m so glad I have a set timeline for that dream of mine (plan B and plan C I’ve well thought of for a long time). I’m also glad she knows what she wants now (at the age of 13).

But it’s confusing me because hearing those words both set my plans straight-er and at the same time collapsed mine. Confusing, right? Hahaha.

Now, I can’t help thinking if it’s something I should add to the drawing or if I should throw away the first and draw on a new, blank page.
