It’s quite hard for me to find the right words about what has happened, but let me get it straight to the point first… I’m not attending the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2011 in Iligan. I know, I know… I’ve confirmed several times, even registered way ahead of the event… but things just didn’t work out the way I wanted and the way I’ve planned them.
My parents, particularly my mother disliked the idea of me traveling out of town. She’s scared because of all the hype we see on television that war is going on in Mindanao. Aside from that, my father (who had a stroke attack back in June) also dislikes the idea to travel out of town at the moment. We’re also very low on money. Even the Pinoy Teens’ funds is low on money. It’d be a terrible idea if I’d borrow some when I still have a few payments due by the end of this month, right?
One of my sponsors for the month has backed out because they’ve got in trouble financially, too; and that really nailed MBS5 for me.
I was so excited, so eager to make it, but I was left with the ultimate decision by my parents… It’s going to be either BlogFest 2011 to which I travel with Princess Salan or the Mindanao Bloggers Summit.
Believe me, it was a tough choice to make, but reassessing our present situation and financial status of my parents [they are building a house], I just had to back out. We all have to make sacrifices sometimes!
I don’t know why I bothered writing this… but thanks to those who bothered to read it. I’m sorry for whoever expected me there. </3 Kitakits nalang sa BlogFest because that’s the blogging event of the year that I’m not gonna pass out on!
ps: I’m still looking forward to a press release of the event so I can still write about it 🙂
