2020 Progressive Life Plan

I never felt so old until today and how much I have missed so far not being able to do anything at all. Now let me complete the list and do it as much as I can.

  1. Learn how to swim
  2. Try free diving
  3. Try surfing
  4. Relearn how to drive and get a driver’s license
  5. Hike 3 mountains (1/3)
  6. Go to 3 more international solo travel (1/3)
  7. Backpack Northern Luzon
  8. Backpack Eastern Visayas
  9. Backpack Western Visayas
  10. Visit Tawi-tawi
  11. Read 30 books (and I’m starting at zero to this point)
  12. Weigh 58 kilos!
  13. Afford a big ticket appliance
  14. Apply for a US Visa
  15. Travel to Japan
  16. Travel to South Korea
  17. Attempt to travel to North Korea
  18. Offer to organize a wedding for a friend
  19. Open a solo photo gallery
  20. Cliff jump

I wanted this to be a 30 before 30 list but I don’t think I would be able to do so much in 2 years so…

To no regrets

I’m summing up my 2016 this early because it is the time of the year that I feel like writing. AgainSee, my last blog post was more than one year ago. It was written with a confused mind, heart and soul. I hit the rock-bottom. I did. This year, too.

2016 was the year I hoped, trusted, relied on, waited, expected too much. More on that later. Let me show you snaps of happiness:

Then I realized, my 2016 didn’t suck as much I thought it did.

Besides, there are far extreme matters to be addressed. Politics, human rights, world peace to name a few.

God will let 2017 be. XO

Ever wonder

The things I do, I say, I hope someone’s keeping a record. To remind me what it is like in an ugly situation; and that taking courage and risks doesn’t equate to being brave but foolish.

Sometimes I make decisions I may regret. Like leaving people who cares for me, who loves me. Completely shutting them off because they no longer fit in my plans, in my life. For me, they lose purpose, thus I’d dispose them and replace with people who will eventually either leave me or I will leave again.

I’m glad there are yes, few people, but trustworthy who stay despite my character, being me. Real friends are hard to come by, our best guess.
