REPOST: QLC

I'm reposting my quarter-life crisis entry about 3 years ago. Don't ask me why I chose this to be the one to post today, I don't have any other entries as proper as this one. Obviously things have changed, I'm at the end of my being in the mid-20's range.

I'm actually not having the whole quarter-life crisis thing. But there are certain things that I am realizing now, that I haven't before. There really is no crisis. I'm not having a moment of clarity. I just don't have anything of sense to post these days.


**********


Don't get me wrong here... Im not being desperate or disheartened or depressed... Its just that Ive noticed lately that my life's been changing... I haven't had the time to reflect on whether Ive changed for the better or the worse, but I know that there are some things that I don't do anymore...


My tv viewing habit (which I REALLY love) has been radically changed... Actually, I don't have one anymore... I blame my work for that... Darn stupid schedule... Suddenly tv shows aren't that interesting to me... Gone were the days when I go gaga over Katie Holmes on Dawson's Creek... I haven't been able to follow the shows that i really like... Although some of them lost the magic and realism that's made me an avid fan (ie 24, Alias, Survivor and Smallville)... Now, I find myself watching National Geographic, Discovery and Donald Trump's Apprentice...

My radio's a bit soft now... Back when i was in high school and college, I've been a fan of Magic 89.9... I'd join contests... Religiously follow their countdowns and just try to be updated on the latest songs... But now, I find their songs uninteresting and loud... Im more mellow... I rarely watch MTV (I feel Im not one of their target market anymore)...


Being single is cool now... When before, I was like desperate to be in a relationship, now I have all the reasons to say being single is one of the best things anyone could ever be... I know having a partner has its perks, but you could still be alone but not lonely... Anyway, i guess its a sign of maturity...


Im not having a crisis... yet!!! Im not nearing my thirties (thank God!)... Still a few more years for that...But anyway I think im armed and ready to face whatever adulthood has to put in front of me... Ive got the guts and the balls for a little crisis management...

wouldn't i love to go back to the good old days...

hey, being 30 upwards isn't that bad. hehe lalo na kung babyface ka pa rin at napagkakamalang younger than your years. (salamat sa olay)

i know that feeling, gill. nadaanan ko rin yan eh. lalo na yung "music" part. naapreciate mong bigla yung mga may kwentang kanta na dati feeling mo pang matanda. haha
