Life is so… whatever.

Why it sucks to have an overachieving dad

with 9 comments

After getting my Eng1 classcard…

Me: US ako o! Eto average ko *shows computed GWA to dad*!
Dad: Ohh. Next sem baka 1.2 na yan.

MUSTA NAMAN. Just because he’s got a summa cum laude standing at grad school right now, HMPH.

But I don’t care. I love my grades. I love my GWA. I don’t think I ever even got a GWA this high in Pisay. I don’t care what my dad says. Or doesn’t say, in this case, like… YAY, for instance. Or congrats. Or something, anything, besides “Ohh. Next sem baka 1.2 na yan.” Sabi ko nga kay Kris, it doesn’t matter as long as you know you did your best (ok, I didn’t. Haha. Lalo na sa Kas1.), and you’re happy with the results. Parents’ expectations are just too high.

But yeah. I could get a 1.2 if I tried. And I will try next sem, harder than I did last time. But of course I’m not promising anything, so if after next sem my dad still says the same thing, BAHALA SYA SA BUHAY NYA. HMPH.

I could’ve included this in my previous post, but it deserves an entry of its own, haha. :P

  3. Thanks. :)

    Yeah. I know naman na somewhere beneath what he said, he’s really proud and happy about my grades. Maybe he just knows more than I do that I can do so much better pa.

  4. That’s just his way of saying congrats! ayos lang yan! para daw may goal ka for next sem! hahahaha…

  6. First of all, vanity. Thank you for updating my link. :)
    Second, congrats for a job well done.
    Lastly, don’t feel too bad about your dad’s comment. That’s just his way of pushing yourself to do better. Besides, he wouldn’t tell you, “Ohh. Next sem baka 1.2 na yan.” if you can’t do it. So he already made the assumption that YOU CAN. Whether or not you actually make that grade next sem, in his mind, he’s already convinced.
