Hello! Going back to the city that is full of smug and filth! This is my last day here in a perfect gateway that I call “secret place” and I am packing my things now. But of course I need to take a peek on my site, just a quick peek before i take the tedious 9-hour ride. Just a while ago, I was pretty busy looking for my things that has been scattered all over the pad then my cell phone rang , It’s my friend Kim. I knew that there’s something wrong with him 'cause he would never make a ring unless it’s very necessary or when he badly needs a thing. “where are you?”, he murmured. Though I was very excited to tell him where I was and how much fun I had, I kept my tone sympathetically but logical in approach, not mushy. I said, “What’s wrong”, “are you okay”, what happened”? I bombarded him with questions which for the fact that I knew he couldn’t even utter his problem.I sensed his gloom. Then I told him, “See you when I get there”, an assurance that I’d talk to him or even help him out, if I could. “Got to be going”, I said and I bid goodbye as if was really busy. But before I hang up the phone, I listened for a nick of time. He was still on the line, “all right, he isn’t really all right”, I thought. So I said “buddy are you okay” in a sincere tone. He replied, “I want someone to talk to, I was suspended from my work, I just want to resign”, in very dull tone that sounded like a kid who would cry in front of his mum. He’s not good and I felt the loneliness on the other end of the line. I told him to wait for me and we’d have a talk. Then he agreed and he hung up the phone. There are things that I realized from this matter - first, in real friendships though you’re not with a continuous communication, it will always be there, the bond that cannot be broken by the span of distance and time; secondly, how to listen and to be sensitive even on the phone, life might be at risk and your voice might be the real help; and lastly, how work define our personality. All right more thoughts to spill out but I really need to go now, haroo! Haroo! Need to finish packing. See yeah later alligator,lol.
