resolution series: [twentyfive] quarter life

image

each year there are many birthdays to celebrate, my mom, dad, brother, friends, coworkers, and of course my own. each and every year as it gets closer to my birthday, i start to feel a little more stressed knowing time is passing me by quicker than i can imagine. it scares me watching the time go by so fast and soon i will be at another stage in life. but before then there’s a lot more other things to worry about. for instance, school is up, what’s next?? what will my future hold, how will my career turn out, what will my relationship status be, how will i be able to cope with all these changes?? so many questions and so many unanswered questions waiting to be answered. in school we were given answer keys to determine whether we have the right or wrong answers; in life, that’s rarely the case. at this point in life, there are so many open ended questions and little knowledge of where to find the answers. this is when quarter life crisis kicks in and gets the best of us. i am no master at dealing with this, as i, myself, am still trying to figure things out. all i can say is take life as it is given, things start off with lots of uncertainties, but as time goes by, it will start to clear up. i’ve always been told everything will be okay in the end; if it’s not okay, its not the end.

day 642 – day of birth

image

today the calendar says that i turn another year older, but i don’t feel much different and certainly don’t feel much wiser. celebrating my special day with the family, the people that will put up with me and will always be there for me no matter what happens. time sure flies by quicker as i get older, but i don’t want to grow up just yet because there’s too much waiting for me to explore. i am truly blessed to have every one of you supporters out there being patient with me and not giving up on me. i can only promise i will make my very best effort to work towards my goals to be a better me. it would have been a more enjoyable celebration if i wasn’t sick on the day of my birth

day 433 – cartoon cake

image

i was cake shopping around in t&t and for a second, i was tempted to get this for my mom’s birthday. that would have been a huge surprise to everyone, and would have been really interesting to see her reaction. unfortunately that won’t happen since i stuck with a the traditional asian style cake of strawberry mousse. i didn’t think she would be too fond of this having this cake anyways

day 246 – bros birthday

image

celebrating my brothers birthday with a family dinner at kiriri and a fruity mousse cake. it’s alarming how time is really passing us by so fast and we are all grown up before we know it. cherish all the moments we have together before things start to change and hopefully change is for the better. nonetheless, happy birthday to the brother that sometimes bugs me so

day 139 – disney days

image

randomly looking through my photo album and reminiscent of the times this crew spent together in the sunny state of california. exploring los angeles, disneyland, hollywood, beaches, shopping, venturing beverly hills, walking along the strip, frank gehry sites, fooling around in hotel and just being a kid. the more reason to feel old, but it was good to be a kid again

day 55 – my bestie

image

just felt like sharing my childhood bestie and cutest lifelong companion that’s been with me since day one through thick and thin. thought this was very cute that my stuffy was following had some fashion sense and a lot of swagger. things i do on my down time that proves i will never grow up

day 29 – look what i found

image

this all happened after we watched and re-watched the coach carter movie. a contract we signed in black and white years ago that would give the rights of our soul to the other. little did we know this agreement still stands today and until the end of our days. how much we have changed since and how everything is still the same, just like yesterday. don’t ever change
