Let’s Get It On, 2015

It’s already the start of February and I have yet to lay out my goals for 2015. I was reading this tweet that said January lasted for a good 3 minutes and somehow I agree! There are days that seem so long but the next thing you know it’s the end of the month, or worse.. the end of the year. 41. What do you want the overarching theme for your 2015 to be? Finance discipline. Money management. Money matters. Right now it’s not going as well as I hoped, but I guess I won’t beat myself too much over it because I did just sign up for two investment plans so it’s not entirely a failure on my part. Just can’t help those impulses, you know? Especially when you see pretty and shiny things even though they are a product of looking into a computer/tablet/phone for far too long. I am the ultimate consumer. 42. What do you want to see, discover, explore? More of the Philippines. I know I said this last year, …

2014 Year In Review, Part II

21. What was your most common mental state this year (e.g. excited, curious, stressed)? Anxious but resilient. 22. Was there anything you did for the very first time in your life this year? I didn’t go out of the country for a span of 12 months. I even thought 2014 would be the first year in about 20 something years that I wouldn’t get to travel. Somehow, I was fine with it. 23. What was your favourite moment spent with your friends? MY BIRTHDAY WEEK! Beach, mountains, beach again, island hopping, my birthday dinner, parties. I was probably the most blessed in this category. 24. What major goal did you lay the foundations for? Financial discipline. I’m past 25, I need to start taking my finances seriously. 25. Which worries turned out to be completely unnecessary? Worries about how I will get through the day/week/month/year. 26. What experience would you love to do all over again? MY BIRTHDAY WEEK WITH JAKARTA FRIENDS. Sand, sun, beach, fun, the water, food, friendship, love. And so much more. …

2014 Year In Review, Part I

I came across this blog entry a few weeks ago when I was looking for posts to write on introspect and retrospect about how my 2014 went. I feel like it went by too quick that I needed to write down things I felt, things I experienced and memories that came with it. Into-Mind is such a great blog as well, I’ve been following its points on minimalism and how to simplify life bit by bit and just being conscious with my approach. I’m going to divide this series into 3 entries. This is Part I, then another set of 20 questions for Part II, and finally the last 10 questions that I will answer about how I want my 2015 to be. I’m looking forward to it. 1. What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about? I’m going to tell my grandchildren that I grew up with the best possible group of friends and that it is possible to maintain great friendships for up to 20 years! Also, …
