First Post for 2007

So this is what the first day of 2007 feels like: quiet, a little drizzly, a little cool, and overall, very pleasant. Here's hoping the rest of the year feels much like the same.

I'm not much for resolutions, but now is as good a time as any to make some general plans for the year. So here they are:

  • * Stay in Davao until March. It's a welcome change of pace from Dumaguete. All the urban accoutrements of a decent metropolis are here, but without the hassle and traffic of Manila, or even Cebu. Who knows? If I like it a lot, I might even stay longer.
  • * Use all those air miles that I've been reserving. I have enough for two round-trips to anywhere in the world. I was saving them for something special but I suppose there's no point in waiting now. Maybe the United States for a spell. I've always wanted to go cross-country.
  • * Start something of my own. Dumaguete was difficult because I was always getting pulled hither and thither. But with a fresh start someplace else, a lot of things are possible.

And as for the rest, que sera sera.


  1. i love it that you can be so geographically flexible!

  2. Hi, Rina, thanks for dropping by. Happy new year!

    I've been geographically flexible since I was 16. I guess that's the byproduct of having grandparents in another part of the country.

    Come to think of it, most people born outside of Manila are geographically advantaged.
