Okay, I know I should be working – I planned to come here in Starbucks to work but I can’t help writing in my blog. Second, I know I should be writing about other stuff like #whatintheworldhappenedtomethepastthreemonths but no. I am writing about my experience here in a coffee shop.
I’m at a point in my life wherein I can afford to go to coffee shops without asking my parents for money. I’m at a point in my life when I can order coffee (Starbucks here in the Philippines is a luxury given the salaries) without worrying about money. To be honest, I am quite proud of myself.
And then I stop. I realize all of this cannot be attributed to me. I owe it to the people around me. I owe it to my parents who sent me to a good school. I owe it to my good school which taught me what I know now. I owe it to the companies which accepted me and gave me experience. I owe it to my past and current bosses who took a chance with me and gave me the opportunity. I owe it to them that’s why I am where I am now.
Most of all, I owe it to Him.
Every morning, I wake up and pray, “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,” a phrase which means “To God be the glory.” I came to a point within the past three months that I forgot who I was working so hard for. I was just reminded of it two weeks ago.
On a funny note, there’s this gay Starbucks employee flirting with the security guard. haha
