I Am So Proud Of You
Saying that we’re proud of someone can really boost their spirits. Such a simple gesture, but that feeling you get when you hear that being told to you is beyond compare! I wanted to write about three people who have done things this past week that have made me so undoubtedly proud of them.. My mom who just underwent a knee surgery, my sister Pam who took her UPCAT last week and my boyfriend who just finished his first round of law school midterms. There were just so many big things to be proud of during the last few days that I honestly couldn’t pick just one person to talk about. Writing about my personal life isn’t easy for me because I like to keep those things to myself but because I am so happy for them, I couldn’t help myself!
So let me tell you who I chose to write about these specific events: My mom is someone I always looked up to that when I saw her suffering because of a torn meniscus I couldn’t take it (to the point of an anxiety attack). But last Thursday it was finally time for her to make her way to the hospital and get that knee of hers fixed. She almost backed out but I am proud that she didn’t despite the many obstacles she had to overcome leading to her surgery. My youngest sister is slowly growing up. From snapping her graduation photos, to taking review classes for entrance exams, staying up late at night and finally taking her first entrance exam.. The UPCAT! Results don’t come out soon but I am still proud that she did everything she could, and that’s what matters. Lastly, my boyfriend. A month or so ago he started law school in one of the most prestigious law schools in the country, the UP School of Law and had his first ever set of midterms last week. From late night studying, all nighters and thousands of pages worth of readings (that’s not exaggerated btw), I’m proud of him for making it past all that and getting through the week. I know it was a tough one but he powered through.
