Here's some random ramblings and a few photos for your enjoyment. Lol.
I'm too old for this
Is it just me or have all 20-something-year-old's I know have fallen into a state of constantly thinking we are too old for anything fun. Staying out 'til 3am drinking and dancing doesn't sound too appealing to me, especially since I'd rather spend my weekends without a thumping hangover. I'm just too old to be drunk at a club at 3 in the morning... OK OK It's probably just me. :p
Then I also said the same thing about Social Media and blogging - and I still feel that way sometimes. I'm too old for Facebook. I'm too old for Twitter. Doh. Just Friend or Follow me. :p
But even American Idol thinks I'm too old. Hehe. They have an age limit of 28.
The truth is, though, I am not too old for anything. YOU are not too old for anything. We should not be held back by those numbers, damn it! OK. I'm not too old to do a jumping / flying shot on the beach with my older sister who is also not to too old! :D
I was born at midnight
Random. I bet you didn't know I was born right at the stroke of midnight. Or well, at least that's what's written on my birth certificate. My mom says the clock they used as basis might (just might) have been a few minutes advanced. Hehehe.
I was a hyperactive kid. Exhibit A...
This was in Rizal Park in Manila, back in the 80s. My mother said my feet were already running even before my dad put me on the ground. I had just never seen such a large running area in my life! :p
For my birthday this year, I have gifted myself with running shoes - and am vowing to use them until they are worn out. :) Hopefully my new shoes will inspire me to run more often. Haha!
I am a Promil Kid
My mom said the doctors would give us the free promotional packets of Promil when I was a baby because we didn't have money to buy milk. :p
The older I got, though, the more I realized I was not as intelligent as I thought I was. Good thing I also realized it was not the only thing that mattered in the world - that there were so many things much more important than IQ! :p
My whole life, my birthday always fell at the time of the year when everyone was busy. When I was still in school, mid-March was finals exams, final projects, and final reports week or preparations for Graduations or summer outings.
When I started working, March was always timing for Maintenance Shutdown or coming off of Maintenance Shutdown so everybody just wanted to go home with their families to rest. Because of this and that and so many other things, not a lot of people remember my birthday.
The worst one was when I was a high school Freshman and nobody at school knew/remembered my birthday at all. :p Fail! That doesn't happen anymore though, thanks to Friendster and Facebook and Multiply and other social networking sites that remind you so and so's birthday every year.
But here is my self indulgent birthday post for you - all I ask for is a quick a simple greet on this, my special day. Yehey! I feel so lucky to have all of you!
