10 things I will accomplish in 2012


I don't normally do lists of to do's. It is actually one of the things that I don't like to do because I am spontaneous and looking on a list makes me feel pressured. But, I have changed.

I have reached the 3rd decade of my life and in the next years before I reach my 4th, I want to accomplish the things that I know will make me say 'I have lived my life to the fullest.'

This year, I am going to make a list of the 10 things that I want to accomplish for 2012. I have started with getting a driver's license when I turn 3-0, and now I have it. I like the feeling of accomplishing personal goals without the pressure.

This list is not according to importance or priority. 

1. I will take a Civil Service Examination. I wanted to be a licensed professional.
2. I will take the TOEFL. I need it for my career abroad.
3. I will be more adept in Photoshop.
4. I will have a DSLR. Although, I really really love my Canon PowerShot A3200 IS, I wanted to own a DSLR because I can use it in my online career. See number 5.
5. I will be a serious blogger.
6. I will go to one province in the Philippines, outside Luzon.
7. I will go to Enchanted Kingdom with my son. The first time he went there was last December... without me, because I have work.
8. I will teach my son to write his full name. He'll go to school on June and I want him to be prepared for the opening.
9. I will make home improvements, either in the kitchen or bedroom.
10. I will open another bank account that I will regularly deposit.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

Would you pursue a relationship your parents doesn't approve of?

It is the 20th century but believe it or not, ending a relationship because the parents doesn't approve of it still happens. Parents have various reason for disapproval--religion, family background, social status, looks, etc. Regardless of the reason, still many couples separate ways because one of the partners value and respect their parents and are afraid of being disowned by their own family.
I have a colleague who had an unplanned pregnancy with her boyfriend for years. Despite being in a relationship with the guy for years, her parents are still against their relationship. When she discovered they were pregnant, they eloped but eventually decided to face their parents to sort things out. At first, the parents were furious to the point of really disowning her. Fortunately, her parents finally accepted the fact that she is pregnant with the guy they despise and were married soon after.
Another story that I would like to share has a sad ending. The guy decided to end his relati…
