What a difference a year makes. I've realized in this short period of time that there's truly nothing, and I mean nothing, that compares to being out in the urban jungle, earning your keep. I've grown up more than I care to admit during these last few months, and with my rapidly maturing mind, I've begun to see things clearer and clearer, which leads me to a few hypotheses of why this world, (or at the very least, Philippine society) is so messed up.
