Bye, Bye Quarter life Crisis?

Is this true? Are we finally through it? Is this for real? Finally, battle scars are healed and there is a lull (total acceptance and contentment?)... The PAX period has arrived for my peer group. I think...

When we were younger, when we get together we talk about the future and of course, we talk about disappointments at work, their love lives, my non-existent partner and the world who just wouldn't understand. We are such idealistic fools! But now, here we are older, wiser? Not sure... but definitely tamer... and more at peace with who we are and where we are headed.

It's a cycle... every 10 years.. each of us encounters a period of warring emotions, sentiments and something that we can't describe nor pinpoint. Adolescent angst 15-16, then quarter-life from 22-26 then mid-life cris... 33-37 then the dreaded menopausal period between the age of 45-50 for women (maybe, later for men... yes, there is a thing as Male Menopause).

It's really what life is all about, "you win some, and you lose some". Detachment is necessary so you will not celebrate much on your successes nor wallow in despair for every disappointment. We must be like water or even air, to go with the flow. To follow the path of least resistance... the way of the Tao!

Our mantra: "To accept the things I cannot change; to have courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference." Amen!

Laughing right now... (or exceedingly sentimental)... while filling up some forms, I was writing my father's middle name (of course I know my mother's maiden name, it's also my middle name but I don't usually write my father's middle name). As I was finishing up on the third copy I realized that I was writing the wrong middle name (darn!)! I was writing the middle name of one of my crushes in high school! Imagine that! hihihi..

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

Aside …
