MOM: Joey, it's just you and I in New York but, years from now I'll meet your step-father and we'll live in many places in Sweden and settle together in Halifax where you'll finish junior and high school. You'll have 2 much younger brothers. At 19, you will move out on your own to Toronto, get married and finally move to B.C.!
JOEY: I'm at boarding school while you work as a nurse to support us but I know that I will love Sweden! I don't know what life holds for me but I know I want to go to university one day. Do they let Filipino-Americans go to university?
...2004, so much has changed. I met Becky through Scuba Diving, We have been married for 3 years, We've moved to B.C., and I just became a father: my son Kyle is so beautiful. I hope I'll be a good dad. I'm just worried about how many times I've been laid off due to downsizing: I hope this trend doesn't continue.
BECKY: I'm so proud of you!KYLE: My uncles both said you should have been a teacher years ago. Way to go, Dad! I've decided to become a teacher like U 2. Wait! Wha? Whadya mean you're teaching at MY high school for a few months?! SUCKS!!! Can't wait until the Fall when you go teach middle school like YOU TRAINED FOR! Love you, Dad!!! :D
Phew...2 more years of university, and now a B.Ed. Never again! So glad it's done but, anything for my family; besides, I'm excited to be a teacher!
TRINITY WESTERN UNIVERSITY
Who knew that the joke would be on Joe?! Months later, he would enroll at Queen's and attend university for a THIRD time!
