Wow. I am old.
I did not celebrate my birthday yet. I’m going to celebrate it on Friday when I can sleep late the day after. Nothing big, just dinner with my roomie. His birthday is 3 days from mine so we always celebrate it as one.
This particular birthday is significant for me because this is the year I start to change my life and finally go after something I have wanted for years. This is also the year where I felt freedom — real freedom. This year revealed many things for me.
I thank God for another year.
August is coming. It only means school is starting — and that means my new life begins. It will be hard, probably even unbearable, but I will power through. I want it THAT much.
I am beyond excited to go back to school but at the same time I can’t help but feel nervous. This is a brand new experience for me. The school system here might be completely different from what I was exposed to in the Philippines and the course I am planning to take is no cakewalk either. I really have to up my game, let go of distractions and concentrate on studies and studies alone. Everything else goes down the list.
Now on to other things…
I was surprised to see soooo many people, children and adults alike going gaga over Pokemon Go. I did not understand the hype…until I downloaded the app myself. I AM OBSESSED! I literally walk 4 blocks home to stop by Pokestops and walk around to hatch my eggs. There is something very addictive about catching them all.
Who’s your favorite Pokemon?
Dreams do come true.
I’ve never felt complete because I was never able to go to college and finish my studies. A lot of factors (migrating to a new country, work, language, the list goes on) blocked me into actually going back to school but FINALLY this year I was able to actually do it. It scared me to just let go of my stable and reliable source of income/job, but I figured you have to sacrifice some things in order to fulfill something. I’m not getting any younger so I pushed myself to take the leap this year.
It will be difficult, I’ll probably cry when I’m broke or miss the things I was able to do when I had a full time job, but it’s worth it. I just know it and I feel it in my gut.
Wish me luck!
