None the wiser

Today, I turn a year older. I’m now twenty seven years old. So far, it doesn’t feel any different than 25 or 26. I don’t feel like I’m old older and I don’t look any older either. I do feel like I’ve gotten a bit wiser. Mind you, I’m no genius or anything but I did gain a lot of experience and knowledge this year.

Looking back at my previous posts I can see that a lot has changed, for the better. When I was twenty five I was struggling to find that perfect job and now here I am working in the field that I was looking to work in. It’s Sunday, it’s my birthday and I’m at work. That’s how much I love this job. Well, that’s a lie. I don’t love it that much. It’s just that my girlfriend is overseas and I’m looking to get over there so I’m putting in the overtime. The more overtime I put in, the better my vacation will be when the time comes.

At the age of twenty six, I was saddened at the fact that I was still single. Now, I have a beautiful girlfriend whom I love to death. She left me for Hong Kong but I am willing to chase her to the ends of the earth. At this point in my life, I have pretty much everything that I wanted.

Life is passing by so quickly now and just looking back at my old blog post, I can see how quickly it’s moving. Blink and you’ll miss it. I feel that there are still a lot of things that life has to offer. Every day on my birthday, I attempt to set goals for myself for the following year. It’s like a New Year’s resolution but this is something that I try very hard to accomplish before my next birthday. At twenty five, I wanted a better job before I turned twenty six. At twenty six I wanted a girlfriend before I turned twenty seven. Now at twenty seven, what do I have planned?

Well, I plan on seeing the world! First stop Hong Kong. Next stop, who knows? I would like to trace back my heritage and see the country where I was born and visit the country where my parents were born. There’s so much of my history that I don’t know about yet. What better way to look back at history than to travel? I plan on doing a lot of travel in the upcoming years. As I’m traveling, I plan on keeping tabs on the places that I’ve been. I plan on starting up a scrap book that will hold all the currencies of the countries that I visit.

There is one ambitious goal that I would like to accomplish some time in my life. It’s not really something that I would do since I’m not that adventurous but the older I get the more risk I seem to be taking. So one day, I hope to ascend to the top Mount Everest. I want to battle the elements and fight my way to the peak. Once I have reached the top of the mountain, I want to look out as far as the eye can see. I want to take a deep breath and scream out, “I’m on top of the world!” I don’t know why I want to do that but I want to know that I am capable to achieving something that only a few has achieved. I still have a positive look on life.
