What do I like about getting older? Hm. I would like to believe that I am getting a little bit wiser with some years of experience to back me, especially because I teach college students. I love that I am able to share
what I have learned and what I know. I love that the students enjoy my lectures more because I am able to share real-life experiences with them. I also love the fact that I am not as impulsive as the teenager I used to be hahaha.

What do I not like about getting older? Let me count the ways. hehehe. I don’t like the fact that my metabolism is gradually slowing down. Right now, I am trying to counter it but of course eventually, nature will take its toll. I don’t like that I feel I am becoming less adventurous, less daring – especially when it comes to getting on theme park rides. I don’t know why that is and where the fear is stemming from. hay. I also feel less carefree as I used to be. I wonder if that is because now I have more responsibilities and commitments. It may be good to see things from the Little Prince’s point of view once in a while and not to be overly concerned with ‘matters of consequence’ – to be more simple and to live a little – of course, that may be quite a challenge. And yes, mental abilities, the sense of sight + other senses and physical beauty will fade away… nothing anyone nor I can do anything about it. I just need to remember to be thankful for all the other wonderful blessings I receive in exchange (for growing older). Hm, journaling ba ito? hehehe. Pwede. Thanks for the inspiration, Alby. I don’t think I’ve ever put down these thoughts on paper before.
