top 10 things to do before I turn 24

i will turn 24. yes, eventually I'll get to that age and I imagine sooner rather than later since time really seems to fly fast.

so here i am typing away on my laptop listing down the Top 10 things I want to do before I reach age 24. i'm doing this so that when look back and review the first quarter (or half of my life), i will have measures to judge by if i lived a full life or not.

the following items are not necessarily itemized according to importance. what's important is for me to accomplish each of them before i reach 24 years of age:

1. Do rock climbing (am looking now in nearby areas cause i know there are indoor rock climbing structures somewhere near the city)

2. Go Bungee jumping

3. Try parasailing (at least once since this is too expensive. same goes for bungee jumping)

4. Bake a cake (i love cake but never ever tried to bake one)

5. Watch a Movie on my own (I'm not sure, I can't remember if I have tried this already so I would have to do it again and remember =D)

6. Grab a nice book and read in Salcedo Park (simple pleasures)

7. Travel on my own (preferably abroad but if i can't, i'll target to travel somewhere within the Philippines but still on my own)

8. Learn to change a tire (independent woman and all the yadi yada's)

9. Go skinny dipping (somewhere totally private mind you!)

10. Increase my investment portfolio (probably get an insurance or buy new stocks. i think this is the only business-related item on my list)

i plan to take pictures once i get to do each of the above items (save for #9 of course =D) so i'll have proof that I did each of them and have a souvenir to cherish each experience.


this seems like a good way to start another chapter of my life =D nice! i like the feeling!

three things that last

faith, hope, and love are said to be the 3 things that endure and considered to be the greatest gifts of all.

but through these gifts, we are also made to feel what we cannot have and what we already lost.

the heart is especially made to feel LOVE regardless if we fall willingly or unwillingly or if it's right or wrong. the heart continues to pine for this love because it clings to the HOPE that someday, this love will be given back. and lastly, the heart holds on to this love and hope on the basis of an unshakeable FAITH that we deserve what we long for too.

but if there are somethings that are not meant to be, somethings that can never be why then do we have faith, hope, and love?

let me answer my own question...i have faith, hope, and love to tide me over to the time when I finally find the things that are meant for me, the things that are to be. but until then, i'll cling to these three gifts that God has given me and be forever grateful to thee.

most intellectually draining and emotionally battering

today marks the most intellectually draining and emotionally battering day of my stay with P&G. i have a relatively small project but really, issues cannot be determined by whether your project is small or not. issues just happen and the are unique for each project.

Happy One Year Anniversary to me and P&G! =D
