I've been writing since I was young. I wrote a few because I was obliged. During my younger years I've done quite good in academics not until I reached high school and got worse in college (haha!) so I was required to represent my school even though I wasn't the best to begin with. I even looked at writing as something arduous and forceful. I've never found fulfillment when doing so. Not until I came to realize that maybe in this world I'm able to be fearless and quirky - so unlike the real me. I don't have a flawless English grammar. I sought the help of a thesaurus many times and I've lost in several writing contests. FYI, I don't have a degree in Communication. I've been told I'm stupid enough to pull on badly-written sentences. Maybe I just found love in stringing words and talking about things (most of the time nonsensical ideas) because I can become honest and sound smart even for minutes. Okay maybe I'm saying a lot and I'll end up losing potential readers if I won't stop. :)

I decided finally to put up a blog after halfway reading "Tuesdays with Morrie". I've had this book since high school but I haven't finished reading it yet after many failed attempts. Okay I know that's so mediocre! Haha. I'm a self-proclaimed bookworm yet this very embarrassing confession! What's up with that?! Anyway, you might be wondering what's the connection between the plot and my sudden realization. I know it's a bit odd since the story doesn't have anything to do with writing but of a life of Morrie Schwartz - a "Teacher to the Last." Well, Morrie made me think of a lot of important things in life I've overlooked because I've succumbed to culture, to material things, and to everything that's pleasurable. I don't want to be that person who'll say "I wish I was young again" to be able to correct my mistakes. I want to be someone who's looking forward to the future and say "I wish I were seventy years old". Hence, the title. 

I'm young and I'm still lost as to where I want to go and whom I want to be in this life. But I don't want to have a lot of setbacks when I grow old. So, let me take you to my "journey". You may find this blog entertaining when I talk about fashion what-not (Disclaimer: I don't have the capacity to turn this to a fashion blog) or find this boring as I may discuss about politics or the rift between China and PH. But I'll try to achieve my goal of becoming a matured, young woman as the days of blogging goes by. So please bear with my weirdness and together, let's look at the world more positively and enjoy life's pleasures. But for now, I shall take a beauty rest since I'm headed for a busy Sunday tomorrow. So, tata for now! :)
