This post is a bit late, yes. It has been a week since classes started, but it has also been a week since our keyboard got busted! For a while, all we can do is browse. I tried to chat over YM using copy paste haha, but of course it is damn hard to do that! Anyway, it is indeed back to school. And I know school brings back a lot of memories for most of us. Especially when we are still young. Those days that we feel that it’s important that all our things should be new, those bullies who treated us like dirt, those times we used to play around the schoolgrounds like there’s no tomorrow. Come highschool or probably college days, staple memories includes those crushes and actual boy/girlfriends, breakups, stress, and most important the friendship that we built with all the people we met. Be it good or bad, happy or sad, funny or not, it really shaped our personalities and truly played a great part in molding us into who we are now. This intro actually sounds too serious haha, I will now discuss why I chose Buck To School as the title for this entry.
Well, basically because of the abundant amount of money one should provide in going to school. Way back, pwede na yung pakonti-konti lang, but nowadays you would really need to save up for it. Not that it’s a bad thing, but in these trying times, it is indeed difficult to go to school. Most especially when you’re already a parent raising children, it is not an easy task. Not unless you’re filthy rich, where you can provide all the necessary and unnecessary stuff without batting an eyelash. An officemate of mine has a niece going to a private school, and she told me that the tuition fee her sister needs to pay is Php75,000! I thought her niece is already in college, but dang, grade 5 pa lang! Imagine spending almost a hundred thousand for the tuition alone. Which brings me to ask, is it still practical to send our kids to a private school or wiser to settle for public ones? Well, it will actually heighten and open up an entirely different discussion so I won’t push it any further.
But nevertheless, it is always nice to go back to school. The notes, bags, books, and yes the uniforms! So, even if it costs us a hefty amount of Philippine pesos, the memories it will give us, the fruits we’ll bear and the lessons we’ll learn beyond the books cannot be payed by any figures. Who wouldn’t want to experience the joy and hardships of school, anyway? It would be worth any buck to school!
