Life, with its myriad of complexities and surprises, has led me down a path that demands a relentless pursuit of excellence and an unwavering commitment to my loved ones. As an eldest son at the age of 30, my life story is one of juggling multiple roles, setting my family’s well-being above all else, and relentlessly pursuing personal and professional growth.
The Daily Balancing Act
From the moment the sun rises, my days are a symphony of responsibilities that traverse the realms of education and technology. As a Junior High School Teacher, I stand before eager minds, shaping their intellectual horizons. Simultaneously, my role as a Software Engineer Lead propels me into the dynamic world of technology, where innovation knows no bounds. And then there’s my role as a Computer Science Professor at AMA University, where I guide young minds towards a future that is as promising as it is uncertain.
The harmonious convergence of these roles is a testament to my enduring passion for both education and technology. It’s a journey that fuels my spirit and propels me forward.
Championing Comfort and Security
My parents have always been the cornerstone of my life. Ensuring their comfort and safety is not just a duty but a labor of love. With every sunrise, I dedicate myself to creating a life for them that brims with happiness and tranquility. Their sacrifices for my upbringing are a debt that I am dedicated to repaying, one day at a time.
Guiding My Brother’s Path
Beyond my parents, my role as an older brother has evolved into that of a mentor and guide for my 23-year-old sibling, Renz. His journey through life is one I navigate alongside him, offering insights into career development and life’s myriad choices. It’s a privilege to stand by his side, helping him chart a course that’s both fulfilling and rewarding.
Prioritizing What Truly Matters
In a world that often extols the virtues of personal ambitions and self-indulgence, my choice to prioritize family is a conscious one. While love and friendships hold their own significance, my family’s well-being reigns supreme. It’s a choice that has not only shaped my identity but has also been the cornerstone of my life’s purpose.
Amid the hustle and bustle of daily life, my faith remains unwavering. Prayer is my refuge, a practice that anchors me to the intangible yet potent source of strength. Through my conversations with God, I find the courage to face challenges, the patience to persist, and the wisdom to navigate the twists and turns that life throws my way. It’s through my faith that I seek to keep my family safe and healthy, finding solace in the knowledge that there’s a higher power watching over us.
A Day in the Life
Each day is a canvas, painted with the hues of dedication and perseverance. My weekdays commence at the early hour of 5 AM, as I prepare myself for the journey ahead. From the moment I step out the door until 9 PM when I return, my energy is poured into my various roles. Yet, despite the demands, I ensure that evenings are reserved for quality time with my parents, whose presence provides a comforting respite from the demands of the world.
Weekends, in contrast, are a tapestry of spiritual renewal and familial bonding. Church worship services offer moments of reflection and connection with a community that shares my values. These moments of worship invigorate my spirit, preparing me for the challenges of the coming week.
A Thirst for Growth
As a software engineer, the pursuit of knowledge is a never-ending journey. In an ever-evolving field, stagnation is not an option. Each day, I’m driven by a thirst for career growth, a desire to push boundaries, and a commitment to remain at the forefront of technological innovation. This pursuit doesn’t stem from a desire for personal glory, but from a genuine passion for the impact that technology can have on the world.
My journey as an eldest son at the age of 30 is one defined by a harmonious interplay of roles, values, and ambitions. As I juggle three demanding jobs, guide my family through life’s complexities, and balance my commitments with faith and determination, I am reminded that life’s beauty lies not just in personal accomplishments but in the mark we leave on the lives of those we hold dear.
Through prioritizing family, nurturing growth, and pursuing unceasing growth, I hope to continue crafting a life that reflects the values and aspirations that define me.
