From Our Readers: Do Not Ask for a Fairy Tale

Don't make a script for your future.

Unlike many girls in the world, I do not expect to meet a prince or a guy who seems like he was woven out of every girl's dreams and fantasies. I know in my heart that that's not possible.

I don't want a guy with six pack abs, but I do want a guy that gives his health importance. I don't really want a guy that looks as good or looks better than Zac Efron, but I do want a guy that makes an effort to look nice. I don't want a guy who spoils me by buying and giving me everything I like and want, but I do want a guy who makes me happy with the smallest things—he doesn't have to make grand gestures, like surprise me with the fireworks or a picnic under the starry night. I don't want a guy who gives me all his attention, but I do want a guy who loves his family, his friends, my family, and my friends just as much as he loves me. I don't want a life full of wealth and material things anyone could ever wish for, but I do want a happy life with the people that matter most to me.

Most people would expect to get paradise or a fairy tale ending once they meet the love of their lives, but I don't think it's a good idea because what made those fairy tales magical was the fact that it wasn't expected—it is special to the couple.

We shouldn't base our expectations on how other people got their dream relationships. We should simply know what we like and don't like, then let everything play out themselves. Don't make a script for your future because if you do, it won't be the same—the magic will get lost in between your plans. So let things unfold.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
