Someday I'll soar
Someday I'll be something much more

Bigger than my Body - John Mayer

That someday has come. Someday is today.

Finally, after weeks and weeks of putting it off, I'm finally going to do my crazy essay. The essay that's supposed to make or break my entry into the Ateneo de Manila. Honestly, I don't want to go to school there, but I would like to pass. Just the same as the people who don't want to go to the University of the Philippines, but just want to get in. So here I am, trying to put into paper what I've been thinking of ever since the question popped into my head.

I'm not sure how it's going to turn out, but I'm going to finish it before lunch time. Yes, I will. With the soothing sounds of John Mayer playing in the background, I will be inspired by his melancholic words; along with the memory of Tony Almeida from 24, the hottest CTU boss ever, who can handle crisis with crutches in his arms and still manage to snag the girl, I will evoke his determination while getting pressed for time; and of course, Jack Bauer, my idol and hero for today. I will imbibe his ability to have the guts to go against the grain.

Yes, by noon, I will have an essay.
