Crepuscular

What was supposed to be a normal day in the mall ended up to be an advanced birthday celebration for my Tito Roy. He was supposed to turn 46 years old last 29th January. DID YOU KNOW THAT... had I been born on the day that the doctor diagnosed, my birthday would've been on January 29 too?

If I only knew that we were heading for the Columbarium, I never would have worn shorts. It's a good thing I was wearing a more decent top, and not my usual slouchy shirts. After all, I thought we were going to the mall. I dress appropriately at all times given that my parents are very conservative; this has actually been the first that I failed to respect the sanctity of the place. But remember my views on dressing up? You've to admit, I looked more like a child rather than the adult that I already am. Haha!

I never quite understood the logic that says we must strive to be the best version of ourselves. How can I, when it comes hand in hand with another logic that says we must be contented with our lot? Who draws the line between being too ambitious and just ambitious enough?

Aren't you finding my title so cool? (wink wink, nudge nudge) Nose bleed diba? Hahaha! It's actually one of those words that I had to Google because I've never encountered such word in any book that I've read before. I am not a vocabulary wizard but as what my English teachers/professors and some online tests said, I know quite a handful of highfalutin words. Naks! Feeling matalino na naman ako. But when my Great Works professor instructed me to read  John Luis Borges' Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, I found myself going in circles. I couldn't understand the main point of the narrative nor could I apply context clues in deciphering the meanings of the words the author use. It's too intellectual and too philosophical for my brain. Enter Plan B. If all else fails, Google it! I did. I found out that the story was all about a missing part of an old version of the Britannica Encyclopedia which deals about a certain world. This world, which is called Tlon, is assumed to be a conspiracy between intellectuals. If you're up for any mind-fuck article, I suggest you read this. I'm going to post my reflection paper on this subject in my Storylane account soon :)
