resolution series

starting a new series called resolution series inspired by an article based on 30 new year resolutions people in their 20’s should make or consider making to develop and prepare for the road ahead. the second decade of our lives is when we discover the most about ourselves as a human being, and learn to pave the road for what is to come in the future. this is the perfect opportunity to explore, experiment and experience all our options in shaping ourselves and becoming the person we want to be. there will be difficult times when it seems like there is insurmountable obstacles and challenges that lie between the start to finish line, but just know that it will be worth it in the end. i live by, and am always reminded, that when there is no pain, there is no gain. i hate thinking of the regrets in the past so here i am trying to take my life by the horn and live life to its fullest without regrets. i cherish all those that have entered my life and made a positive impact in all ways possible and i hope i have impacted other’s lives likewise. without your support, patience and guidance through all the ups and downs, i would not have the strength and motivation to continually make improvements. you listened to me when i vented, you lifted me when i fell, you held me together when i cried and ultimately showed me the meaning to true love and friendship. i am grateful for who i have become but i am not satisfied with where i am at. it’s never too late to make resolutions and changes towards a better me

louder than words

i am beginning to fully understand what nike means when they say just do it. as my birthday approaches and soon i turn another year older, it’s one of those reflective moments where i look back and think of what i need to improve upon. all this time, there are many things i want to do and need to do but couldn’t do. in the past, i have put a lot of emphasis in thinking and planning for it but very seldom have i followed through with actions. it certainly took a lot longer than i would have liked but it’s never too late to understand; and i can’t be more happy to feel that things are starting to click inside my mind. knowing so, my mind and body must work together in order to make things happen and make changes towards my goals. it is time to search from within and find that power to will myself to put words into action. learning to take one thing at a time. actions speak louder than words so just go out there and prove it

day 488 – come and go

a month of craziness indeed. november came and went with a blink of an eye. when my parents were out of town, the month had especially more of ups and downs filled adventures, fun, mysteries and injuries. the amount of booze i had exceeds many, the amount of bruise also skyrocketed, the amount of expenses also crept up and the amount of freedom i had fell through the roof. the temperature dropped immensely, even the first of snowfall came to the city before november’s end. it’s been an interesting month and a very good experience that maybe perhaps i am ready to enter and inherit another type of lifestyle, of course, without sacrificing my current

day 462 – today’s lunch

keeping a close tab on my meals and trying to eat clean regularly and stick with the suggested nutritional proportions. lunch composed of a mix of bean sprouts, veggies and pork. it’s going to take some time to adjust to the many technical details of proportions and have to be really on top of it. hope i can keep going at this rate and stay disciplined to make some necessary changes

twenties series: [twelve] childhoodness

the transition of growing up from stage to stage is not an easy one. being a kid was easy but we wouldn’t even realize it at that time. during the first decade, there’s no need to stress, no need to worry and every day passed by like it was the best day of our lives. went to school, played with friends, had some extracurricular activities and went home happy and carefree. stepping into the second decade was a tougher because we realize there are added responsibilities and the acknowledgement of what stress is. school gets busier, homework increases, extracurricular activities piles on, not to mention drama will occur, relationships becomes unclear and the need to start thinking about career path. entering the third decade of the life, formally known as adulthood, is the toughest yet. school gets tougher, every exam and paper is like a do or die situation, extracurricular activities continues, love life has its ups and downs, and you feel like your career is trapped in fog and there’s no turning back. there are those moments when nothing is going right, everything happens out of the unexpected and everyone seems to be against you and you think long and hard and question whether you made the right decisions five years ago. i now understand why people will occasionally go in the quarter life crisis. i don’t know what is in store for me the rest of this decade and the next ones to come, but i am set to make take the positives out of situations and make it the best possible experience
