Tatlong Dekada


Wow I can't believe I'm 30 today! I'm still in denial, hahaha! I feel so old.... Okay, I'm might be over reacting, a bit... Those who are more prepared than I am, has a bucket list or a dream list that they wanted to get or do before becoming 30. I'm not prepared so I just got one online.. Lol

I got this from (click here to view the actual page) and I compared my experiences. Here I go....

By 30, you should have:

One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you of how far you’ve come.

     I don't have an old boyfriend that I want to go back to, but all of them remind me that my decision making skills improved over the years. 

A decent piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in your family.

     Does a book shelf count?

Something perfect to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour.

     I have a little black dress, oh okay, it has a navy blue line right in the middle but it seems professional enough. For the man of my dreams, no attire needed please, hahahha.

A purse, a suitcase and an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying.

     I have all three!

A youth you’re content to move beyond.

     I was over my youth since my eldest child came along 10 years ago.

A past juicy enough that you’re looking forward to retelling it in your old age.

     I do have one. Wait until I get old, maybe I'll tell my children and grandchildren about it just so that they will earn something.

The realization that you are actually going to have an old age—and some money set aside to help fund it.

     I admit that I started late in setting aside money for my retirement, but it's better late that never right?

An e-mail address, a voice mailbox and a bank account—all of which nobody has access to but you.

     I don't have a voice mailbox.

A résumé that is not even the slightest bit padded.

     If being a wife, mom of two, personal secretary of my husband, a wedding coordinator, an insurance person and real estate agent count, then by all means, Yes!

One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry.

     They're one and the same. My husband...

A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill and a black lace bra.

      Oh snap, I don't have a set screwdrivers and a cordless drill, and I don't like lace.

Something ridiculously expensive that you bought for yourself, just because you deserve it.

     I don't really buy expensive things. :D I love practical things.

The belief that you deserve it.

     Deserve what?

A skin-care regimen, an exercise routine and a plan for dealing with those few other facets of life that don’t get better after 30.

     My skin-care regimen is still the same, I use cleanser-toner-moisturizer w/ collagen. Sadly, I can only exercise a maximum of 20 minutes or until my baby wakes up from her nap. 

A solid start on a satisfying career, a satisfying relationship and all those other facets of life that do get better.

     It may sound corny but taking care of my family is my career. Ask them if I'm doing it right.

By 30, you should know:

How to fall in love without losing yourself.

     I'm still here...

How you feel about having kids.

     I feel great. Tired most of the times but I wouldn't have it any other way.

How to quit a job, break up with a man and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.

     Sure... Did  all three.

When to try harder and when to walk away.

     Some things are just not worth my time and effort, those things that I walk away from, like negative people, for instance.

How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn't like to happen next.

     Kissing my husband and kids are different right? haha

The names of: the secretary of state, your great-grandmother and the best tailor in town.

     We don't have a secretary of state, my great-grandmother died when I was non-existent and the best tailor in town is probably gay, Lol.

How to live alone, even if you don’t like to.

     I have not done this. Not even once. Husband has always been there for me since I was a teenager.

How to take control of your own birthday.

     I took control on my own birthday since I turned 19.

That you can’t change the length of your calves, the width of your hips or the nature of your parents.

     I wished my calves were longer, my hips will go back to its pre-pregnant width and my parents not to be as unreasonable as they are... sadly, I can only accept these things.

That your childhood may not have been perfect, but it’s over.

     It's nearly perfect. I learned a lot of things when I was a child. Like how to earn money when other 6 year old kids can't even count more than ten.

What you would and wouldn't do for money or love.

     I will never sell myself and my family for money. Hmm.. What will I not do for love? I won't give my kids everything they want even though my love for them is endless. They need to learn how to work for some things before getting them.

That nobody gets away with smoking, drinking, doing drugs or not flossing for very long.

     I don't smoke, drink, do drugs so I really can't tell. But I often forget to floss and my dentist always knows... haha..

Who you can trust, who you can’t and why you shouldn't take it personally.

    I often make a mistake of taking things personally and burning bridges between people that I couldn't trust. 

Not to apologize for something that isn't your fault.

     hell yeah... I do not apologize for something that is NOT my fault. That is the main reason why my parents hate me.

Why they say life begins at 30.

     Let's see.... I just 30 so I can't say this yet. Ask me again maybe next year.

Okay 30 something experiences... bring it on! I am soooo ready for it all.

Blessed be.
