MMVIII (2008)

2008 is the middle of the triennial International Year of Planet Earth. Year of the Rat starts in February. And it is a leap year so bachelors beware!

Gratitude 2007

What I'm thankful for this 2007:

  • New friends and old enemies, old friends and new enemies - for keeping me level-headed
  • New ventures - for the extra income to finance my MBA studies
  • New leash on my MBA studies - 3 As for first semester and 2 more subjects for 2nd semester and thesis writing next summer, fresh outlook from my teachers and the contagious enthusiasm of my younger classmates
  • Advocacies in reading and campus journalism - for the opportunities to share what I know
  • Ex-friends - for the realizations on what friendship really means
  • Acceptance of turning 51 - can't help it, can' t avoid it
  • Renewing ties with high school batchmates - the best thing to happen to me this year
  • Meeting online friends in person - for the bonding online and off
  • Minor victories and major disappointments - for keeping my feet on the ground
  • New books, book haunts online - for the steady supply of cerebral stimulation
