I will let you in on a secret: back then, I did not care where my life was headed to.
I know it sounds so juvenile, but back then, I was totally enamored by the Epicurean mantra of eating, drinking and being merry, for tomorrow I may die.
Of course, this was several years back — and now that I am nearing my 30′s, I regret my malignant lack of discernment back then.
But, as with all things in life, it is never too late to realign and reacquire control of your life, for so long as your heart is in its rightful place.
These days, even when I am constantly hard-pressed for time, and my study load is inhumanely demanding, I am still thankful — because I know that I am on the path towards redemption.
During moments when my mind would be paralyzed by pensive musings, I often wonder how I will eventually turn out in the future: will I be a good lawyer? Will I live long enough to see my country progress? Will I be someone who will be of great service to the country someday? Will I be the first politician from our family?
These musings never fail to amuse me — but as early as now, there is one thing that I am certain about: that I will have the best time when I get old.
I’ve observed that a handful of the old people that I know today tend to get grumpy as they age. And it’s a no-brainer why they act they do really, because I’ve observed that even when they are nearing their 60′s or 70′s, they still opt to slug it out in the workforce and compete with their younger counterparts.
No siree, that ain’t working for me.
I plan to enjoy once I retire from the rigors of working. As a matter of fact, as early as now, I am already scouting for the best senior living residences that I can be in after I retire. Kidding, of course! I am way too young for that. LOL
But just for fun, I actually did some research about these facilities, and I was surprised to find out that there are a lot of institutions that cater to these needs of elderly Americans. One interesting tidbit that I particularly liked was from Palm Beach Gardens information.
Anyway, enough with this bizarre ‘old person’ speak.
In other news, I am super stoked! The end of the semester is just around the corner, and I can now taste the liberating sweetness of freedom, albeit momentary, from thick books and endless studying.
I can’t wait!
