This is my last post one day before I turn 18. But, even though I'd be of legal age sooooooooon, I am still young. Take note, YOUNG. :)
So here are the things (hoping memory has served me well) I haven't done or tried yet in my 17 years of existence (so pageant):
1. TUMABA :(
I was born thin, grew up thin, and until now am very thin, still desperate to become big, a 'lil bit big.
2. Magka boyfriend :)
I don't know, but I am proud of it. I thank tatay for being strict on this part, because if not, my heart could have been torn to thousand pieces now. (aw? korne!)
3. Maglaro ng poker games.
I don't have any ideas on how to play these, much less to gamble.
4. Magtaya ng swertres o lotto.
I don't know why I placed this. But yes, I haven't done this, and never will. :p
5. Mangibang bansa.
Hahaha. This is one of my dreams. To be fulfilled.
6. A bonggang birthday party.
No money. It's not my priority, though. I have been used to be sang a Happy Birthday song then individual kisses from tatay, nanay, and my siblings since I could remember. That was more than enough. I am just hoping I could give my sisters a good debut celebration.
7. Kumain ng balot o penoy.
One of the things I don't like about balot is the chick inside, though I haven't seen one yet. (based on what I've heard from friends). Another thing is that nobody has invited me yet for a balot mania. I won't dare eat alone.
8. Sumali ng pageant.
Wahahahahaha. So impossible. Never. Kahit tumaba pa 'ko.
9. Kumain ng ahas, uod, aso, pusa, rabbit, kabayo at tao.
I am looking forward to eating these all, and the rest of the exotic unmentioned.
Kaloka. Did I even write this?
11. Mag-drive ng four wheels.
We don't have one at home. Two wheels lang yong nasa bahay. Soon enough, if God wills me to have one, I 'll buy an orange Picanto. Yipee!
12. Mag night swimming.
I don't know how to swim, okay? And nobody invited me yet. Surely, tatay won't permit.
13. I cannot play any kind of instrument *sigh :(
I tried piano. Did not work for me. I tried guitar and flute. Nothing. It isn't just my cup of tea.
14. Sing solo in front of a crowd.
I tried to sing in front of a crowd but in a choir. I also tried to sing alone in front of a small congregation (IPR sa TN----so long ago) but that was only a lip synch. So no solo career.
15. Magpa boy cut.
I cannot somehow figure out my face if I have a bob or boy cut. 'Di babagay sa mukha ko. Ang payat ko kaya. But I will try this soon, if I have gained enough courage to distort my already distorted face.
16. Magpa hair color.
Many thought I had my hair colored or dyed because it is ash brown in color. No I haven't tried that yet. I will try that soon. I will have orange or red highlights. hehehe.
Pati kasi date, bawal pa. Tatay has to know first, he said. I cannot afford to disobey him and go on a date without his permission. I cannot risk break his trust on me. :) But since I am going to be 18 few hours from now, no date pa rin. :D Pag may work na daw.
18. Ma-ospital dahil nasagasaan.
I am not praying to have an accident. I know how painful it is --- the bruises, the hospital bills, and the endless haunting of the incident.
19. Magbilad sa araw even for just half a day.
Lucky me. I haven't had ROTC. :)
Wala lang yata akong third eye kaya hindi pa ako nakakakita ng white lady, tsanak, santelmo, tikbalang, kapre, pugot na ulo, at kung anu-ano pang asungot. Sa aklat lang yata yan nag-eexist. But I know my faith in God makes me firm. And if time comes they dare make me see their image, I am ready to face them and say, "Estoryahe!"
These are just some of the things I haven't done or experienced yet in 17 years. I forgot most of it. But although I missed these things, God has showered me with oh so many blessings, events, surprises, serendipities, graces, tears (of joy and sadness), problems, challenges, friends, families, and wonders to thank for. I might be poor but I am rich.
This is therefore my last post.
