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..

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.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
