Post-fiesta post

Tell me, are there times that you think of how will you die? Or what if you incurred a debilitating illness or maybe at a young age you met an accident that will hinder your dreams. The last time we talked about this, we were coming back to our dorm from my house in Cavite. Yes, mid exam week and I invited few friends (4 actually) to come over to my house. I decided we should go right after our 7:30-10am exam that day and a good timing for the “bisperas”. We don’t have any exam the following day so it was a clean plan. I asked a friend if he could bring his car with him and we voluntarily full tanked the gas. It was a 2 ½ hour drive. One of my friend who came last two years for the same occasion told everybody in the car that we serve a lot and has different dishes and for the nth time he repeated how he liked and missed the Menudo. Hehe

One of my friends who'scoming is a Muslim so I requested my mom to cook at least 3 menus that doesn’t have any pork or any trace that a pork flavor infused to it. Good thing there was no traffic, So we got home to the expected time. We settled for a while then we ate. They served fried tilapia with sweet and sour sauce, sinigang na sugpo, alimasag, morcon, hamonado, fried chiken and of course the menudo. I ate rice by the way. Haha! After we ate they played at the computer shop then around 5 pm we ate again and decided to come back here in QC.

As expected the traffic was worst and since we still lack sleep from that morning's review and exam we ended up talking what ifs. Until it came to the topic if given a chance, how do you want to die?

I said I don’t want to die old. “anu na lang itsura ko sa pictures nun?” ehehe. Maybe I will die in a disease but hopefully not that painful or an accident but not gory. Demanding diba? Hehe. I also told them I never experienced a holdup or be snatched. Maybe I will die on that way? One of my friend told us that a gun was pointed at him when he was a freshmen in FEU Morayta. I was thinking if I was in his situation what will I do? What will u do if you were?

On my way back here again, I was thinking what if I got into an accident right after I graduated or passed the board exam. What will be my attitude towards it? Will I easily accept that or possibly and the worst I will change for the fact I cannot accept that faith. Pasensya na ha kung ano ano naiisip ko. Kasi naman, you have these ideas of diseases and what are their ssymptoms and clinical manifestations. And later you will tell yourself… what if…

And for your opinion, if you have an option to die… tell me what is it…

Aw. My tita died yesterday lang from complications of diabetes. If I have the option to die, I don't want to die because of a certain disease. I don't want to suffer. I want it serene that I'll just close my eyes and then lift my spirit up.

mas gusto kong mamatay na handa akong mamatay, kagaya ng mamamatay dahil sa sakit or sa old age. at least handa na ako.
