30 Before 30: 30 and Fabulous

Tuesday, March 10, 2015



A few years from now I will celebrate my big 3-0, a milestone for everyone. I don't know, something seems a bit special about the year you turn 30 as if everyone goes into some kind of rite of passage or initiation into adulthood.

If you'd asked my 18-year-old self what I imagined my dream 30-year-old life would be like I would probably have said that I am an architect, have established a company or own my dream house. I thought have everything figured out. Turns out, I was wrong.

I'm still living with my parents and  I don't even own a credit card. I am not married yet nor have a child in short, I'm still single. After I finished my college degree I landed a job in a construction company. I also travel from some nearby provinces such as Tagaytay, Pangasinan, Zambales and Baguio. I have also owned a small construction business.

There have been some life changing years in the mix, I've achieved a lot, even if they didn't happen the way I’d planned. But there is so much more that I want to accomplish. So I realized that would come up with my 30 before 30 project that I will be able to look back upon. Save P 5,000 for every goal that I will accomplish.
