With Age Comes…

24 Apr

IMG_4239The day I turn 28, I started addressing myself as if I just turned 40. Not that I’m saying 40 is old- but I’m 28 years old for Christ sake! I feel older than I actually am and sometimes I feel like I should have known more or have already accomplished more things.

I like to believe with age comes maturity; and for me, I want to be able to do things by myself, depending on myself more. A couple years ago, you couldn’t force me to dine out or to attend church alone. You couldn’t force me to do anything solitary, unless it had to do with my living space: that I can’t compromise.

Feeling like 30 at 28

17 Oct

fullsizerender Turning a new age is a blessing! I get to see my 28th birthday this week and for that, I couldn’t be more thankful. As excited, as I am to celebrate my 28th year on earth, nothing scares me the most than turning 30 years old. See, I’m not even there yet and I’m already worried about the things I cannot control. Typical me!

Turning 30 to me means that I should have everything figure out by then. It is the “I’m done with the foolery” year. The year where career is popping, settling down or in the process of doing so, and of course a lot of traveling. But, as I get closer to 30, I feel like I’m nowhere near ready for the things I expected to have accomplished by the time I’m 30- that itself scares the crap out of me.

I Found Myself by Losing Myself

1 Jul

IMG_3565-2It SEEMS like I have been slacking around; it may appear that I haven’t done much. I promised at least a post per month- I skipped last month. Not because I wasn’t aware, but I had so much going on- I had to focus on things that required much more attention than before. Now that is it all over- therefore, I can get back to my old routine.

So what has been going on? Well, enough to write a book. I haven’t posted anything since my short film came out in April. What a great learning experience- I must say? Not that I ever second-guessed myself. Based on people feedback, the film exceeded my expectation. I now know what I need to focus on for my next short or feature films. The topic I chose to write about targeted the audience and reactions I was aiming for. With that alone, I’m overjoyed.  Continue reading

My New Year’s Resolution: Self-concentration

4 Jan

DSC_0717A man who goes by the name Carl Bard once said, “ Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” It is a brand new year- although it seems like it was 2010 yesterday.   Every year, we all come up with what known as “New year’s resolution”. Some people choose to take better care of themselves, to lose or gain weight, pick up a new hobby, etc.- but the reality, by the first week of Feb., some people can’t even remember what their resolution was.

For the past years, I have always had the same resolution- to start working out. It was the same thing for many years, mainly because I never took initiative.  I would say it, but I would not start working out- unless I had to attend a special event and I wanted to lose a couple pounds or to “toned-up”.  I would’ve worked out for one or two weeks, but then I would’ve fallen back- there was no motivation. Everything changed when I started grad school and working out was the only thing that kept me from pulling out my hair- there, I found my motivation. So what’s the point of coming with resolutions if we’re not going to stick with them?

Quarter Century: MC vs. The Society

15 Oct

Today, October 15th, I turned 25 years old. Shocking, right? Clearly I don’t look like my age- I’m not sure if that’s a positive or negative thing- but yeah! I am a quarter of a century. These years have gone by so fast; I was just 14 years old yesterday. Needless to say, I am beyond grateful to see this beautiful day.  A lot of people don’t even have the chance to see their first birthday- luckily; I get to see my 25th.Image

So now that I am 25- what now? I remember growing- my friends and I would sit around and plan what we wanted to establish by the time we’re 25. Some of us had different plans, but we all were thriving for something- whether it was starting a family, getting married, finishing school or even moving out our hometown. We all had a goal until we turn that quarter century.

What Does Age have to do with Love?

2 May

Ruth-32What is love? How does it feel to be loved? Although the word “love” has the simplest definition, which is a profound tender, passionate affection for another person; however, everyone tend to define it differently. But, one thing that almost everyone can agree on is that, we all want to be loved. Also, we love the feeling of being in love. A lot of people, including myself, like to say, “age is just a number when it comes to finding that special one,” but it is really? I say it all the time; but trust me, my ideal of a perfect date is five (5) years older than me; anyone above that has a question mark; and I definitely wouldn’t go over seven! So why do we say it if we don’t mean it? It is because of the society? Or who are we afraid of? Perhaps, are we lying to ourselves or to the society?

Couple weeks ago, a few of my colleagues were discussing some “love issues” and I was the only one who thought otherwise. So before I explained the situation, this is where I ask, “does love have an age limit?” Here comes the story, someone whom I know is now 70 years old, has recently gotten into a relationship. They both are very conservative Christian, and decided it would be a great idea to get married! Everyone is against the idea, BUT me.
