Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.

What does it take to prove your love to someone?

Do you have to spend thousands? or just a good 'ol time together will do?

Do we have to give them a nice gift at their birthday? or a simple but warm "Happy Birthday!" will do?

Do we have to enroll them to an exclusive university? or just to a state U? -- after all, the best lessons in life are free.

Do we have to give them expensive clothing? or just the cheaper ones? -- the ones that looks good on them but is never hard on the pocket.

Do we have to give them the best meals? or just a simple complete meal, never deprived from nutrition?

I had never spent anything for my family, well except for some occasional treats from McDonalds. This -- maybe -- is the reason why I wanted to finish my studies asap. I've been dependent from my parents since that day of 1985 and I wanted to work badly! My cousins works at McDonalds even though their parents earn like thousands per hour and own a StarBucks franchise. And me -- ME! Doesn't know a thing to do -- I dont even wash the dishes or clean my room or whatever. My employment here at Ruiz Household chores, Inc is pointless! My boss (who is my mom) gives me my weekly salary and for what? I dont even do a thing!

I wish somehow, I have made them proud. Even though I failed several times.
