About to graduate from high school, a young man from a wealthy family was anticipating his gift. It was a custom in that affluent neighbourhood for parents to give the graduate a new car.
Jason and his father had spent months looking for a car, and the week before graduation, they found the perfect car. Jason was certain that this car would be his on the graduation night. Imagine his disappointment when, immediately following the graduation ceremony, Jason’s father handed him a small, elegantly wrapped package. “It must be the key to my new car!” Jason thought.
Upon opening the gift, all he found was a Bible with his name imprinted in the front. “A bible?!” He took it out, hoping to find the car key in the box. Empty! Jason was so angry that he threw the Bible down & stormed out of the house. His father tried to stop him, but Jason kept on running. He and his father never saw each other again.
News of this father’s death finally brought Jason home again. As he went through the possessions he was about to inherit from his father, he came across the graduation Bible. Brushing away the dust, he opened it and began idly flipping through the pages. A paper tucked inside caught his eyes and he pulled it out of the Bible. It was a cashier’s check, dated on the day of his graduation, in the exact amount of the car’s price he and his father had chosen.
Why it seems there is something about number 11? Some people noticed it so I noticed it too. Yeah! I remember then some events that concerns with that date. The 2 most unforgettable events that alarmed the whole world!
September 11, 2001 – World Trade Center or the 9/11 attack
March 11, 2011 – Disaster in Japan: Earthquake & Tsunami
The 9/11 attack gave us scare of the terrorists. Back then, I was so frightened that maybe a bomb suicide was just next to me. Oh my! Bombs seem everywhere! Explode here, explode there! In every public places, there was always a threat of bomb!
Then after a decade, another ‘scare’ is threatening us. Earthquakes!
Oh my! Whether it’s a man-made disaster or nature’s attack, I realized that there’s no more safe place in this world!
What happened to Japan only proved us that no matter how progressive or powerful a country is, you can’t fight off nature. Nature can swipe off everything on this earth... if people continue to neglect “Her”
Have you noticed the effect of climate change? But then, I don’t believe God was angry to Japan. Oh c’mon! I know Japanese people love nature & they’re taking care of it. It can be seen on their place, right? And no wonder why Japan considered as one of the most beautiful places in the world. A blend of traditional & modern style... A place of nature & future... Wow!
In Philippine history, there was a dictator president who ruled the country for 20 years. He declared martial law & People Power Revolution started off. After that, our country became democratic. But what’s the connection of this to my topic? That dictator was born September 11.
Hmmm... I wonder, could I be a threat too? Hahaha! Oh man! It just happened that I was born in the same date! September 11! Yup! September 11, 1989...
10. The Judgmental
Obviously, those people who’ll judge you as if they already know you.
9. The Parasite
The clingy type. They can’t stand on their own so they tend to pass their problems onto others. They depend to you too much that it really sucks!
8. The Know-it-All
As if they know everything when in fact, they don’t know anything at all.
7. The Dementor
Always negative especially when you have a nice plan or suggestions. They always think of the negative side.
6. The Killjoy
Always contradicting. Just like the dementor.
5. The Rude
They just don’t respect the feelings or the privacy of others. How rude!
4. The Puppet-Master
They manipulate other people for their own sake.
3. The User-friendly
Keep friend with you as long as they can use you. As if you’re only a resources for them.
2. The Plastic
They’re so nice in front of you & would say wonderful things about you, but actually a demon behind your back making fool of you.
1. The Traitor
The worst among the worsts. A traitor can ruin everything: friendship, family, relationships, a country, your reputation, your whole being, everything! They’re good at disguising so you’ve no idea who’s going to be a traitor.

As far as I remember, I got this from our "Psych Exhibit" when I was in 3rd year college. It was fun! ^o^ I thought the owner made a lot of typographical errors, but it really looks like this. Yeah! I couldn't believe that I could read it!
Rejection... Well, I'm getting used to it. At first, it's really hard to accept, but in the long run, your system will get immuned to it. Agreed or ...
