Update on the Bucket
The challenge of attending to graduate school while juggling tons of hats and obligations sure is not as easy as I thought it was but I'm certainly excited knowing that I've reached this far and I'm funding my own education as well as managing my own time - it's just a matter of accomplishing and sending out the assignments plus having to update myself when it comes to the outside world.

The car has been amazing and been taking me to places. It made me more on mobile when it comes to engagements and safer. European technology, made in china but everything else covered by the car company sure is the cherry on top. CHERY surely is a great choice plus I'm not anxious every month for its dues.

On the financial aspect, knowing I've advanced the investments and insurances makes me fulfilled. It's empowering knowing you're already taking good care of retirement even though you're talking about future-tense.

What's next on my bucket? Invest on stocks, a house to build and perhaps a memorial plan to make everything else covered. It may be too soon to look on it but it's better to have it all done now than later.

UP here I come!

Handed my Masters application today. The grueling wait will be within my veins until May. Funding my own education is a dream come true, except the life filled with frugality but it's going to be worth it.

I'm going to be ready for you, UP!

School, I can already smell you. Last year's wait can now happen.

Dig in

Underneath our anger is usually a wounded heart. LET GO.

Before the year ended, I was reminded on how lucky I am and that I've flourished into this better person than I used to be. I'm still a work-in-progress, we both are, but this will constantly remind me to strive and that all things are possible especially (aside from your awesome friends) if you have a loving man standing right next to you, protecting you and always there beside you.


2012 & Owning it!

You know what they say about how you start your year predicts how you'll spend the entire 365 days of it? Well, if that's true, boy, I'm in serious trouble! I slept in half of the day due to ushering in the new year but let's revise it a little to a much stronger perspective.

I say, declare what you want during the entire year and claim it. From spending a lot of firsts during the 1st of January, I am looking forward to tons load of more firsts to learn, work on and go to. I'm ready to grasp all the learning curve, surprise myself and give myself an extra push.

Funny how I traced back on my bucket list for 2010 and all that I declared was this : " This year is all about races and save up for more traveling bliss" and yes, 2010 brought me to tons of races and got me run for a cause. You'll be able to read about my running journey through The Flexitarian Runaholic Diary

Motives are different from well wishes and pure intentions. No hidden agenda. 

So Close
never look back
Back when I was in the states, this was on loop every single day. That was how many months and up until now, it still gives me the chills whenever I hear it.

Relaxing isn't? just a little saddening if you listen to it carefully though.
