It’s unusual to say the least…
Last month, when we were on our way to the beach, my mom’s cell phone rang. It’s not really out of the blue because my mom has an event organizing business so a lot of people would call her from time to time.
But this time, it scared me.
“Hello? Ah, this is from Carl’s school?” My mom answered.
My heart started pumping like I was running on a treadmill for 15kph. They talked for like 5 minutes and after my mom hanged up, there was sudden silence.
My mom didn’t say a thing.
So just an icebreaker, I asked “What are we going to do first at the beach?”
That didn’t turned out well, to make the long story short – I failed in 3 subjects and I am going to summer school.
Then just last week, my dad and I talked about it. It was a long talk, one of the talks that make you sweat and think about random things while listening because it was very serious.
The big sad news is…
I’m forced to sign up for the army.
I don’t like it, but they made me do it to discipline myself I guess. I’ll be starting next week so I’ve got everything ready right beside me, my luggage, everything.
Right now, I’m going my best to think of anything positive but as much to my dismay – I can’t.
I am also opening this blog for bidding as I can’t pursue with my online career anymore. The bidding will start at $50,000. If you are interested, comment below with your bid or email me at [email protected] if you want to bid privately. I’ll just comment your bid below to keep people updated.
This is probably the hardest thing I’ve done because I’m giving up an empire that I’ve already built and fortified.
Also my company, RichKidMedia has been aquired by a local online company. I have 20% stocks though so I have something to keep me making money through the years.
I would like to thank everyone for being with me on this great journey. I would like to thank my mentor, Joel Christopher for guiding me, my parents for giving me the disicipline and God for giving me this oppurtunity.
I think, that’s it, no words can explain what I’m really feeling right now.
Update, April 11, 2009 8:01 PM: SOLD – Winner’s bid was an old $1 coin and a red sock.
