Schedule

I am amazed even by myself sometimes because I am able to synchronize and choreograph my schedule at a perfect precision that sometimes other people are surprised. I seem to be the person who knows exactly what I am doing at May 20, 2007 at 2:00 PM.

I am done with my class. I only have one quiz left to give. And I have one take home final exam to give. That's it.

Another conclusion. Another year to close. Another year to open.

Time flies fast, definitely.

I am in the middle of my second year. I have 39 credits left. I have already finished my secondary research paper, and I am about to write my qualifying paper (aka MA thesis). Then, I will be writing my dissertation proposal, and then I will write my dissertation.

Goal for now: to finish all of that by June 2009.

Sometimes it feels funny looking back at what I left home: my friends who though of the same age as I am, they already have a family. With kids and everything. I on the other hand am still single, enjoying my freedom, enjoying the lack of worries.

I have to confess sometimes, whenever I see couples out there, clutching their hands together, it seems it is a fantasyland out there, being with somebody else. But then I get shook back to reality, and then a few milliseconds later, I realize how fortunate I am that I am just caring for myself.

I see the case of my fellow graduate student who has two kids. He, being the father, with a wife who isn't working, his plan for the summer is an internship so he could get some extra money for his family.

I on the other hand is flying down to Ecuador for a week of escape.

Being single... I love it.

It may be lonely at times, but then, if there are stuff that would keep me busy, then who would remember loneliness?

  4. I do believe that we should enjoy ourselves first--try to find the real person inside of us and mend all the insecuritues that comes along while growing up--before settling down for good. You cannot give what you don't have as they say, and I want to be a COMPLETE person before I could say to my son that he should live a full life. Yes, being a single has advantages and like you--Im lovin' it.

    Cheers to stud stags...eherm...like us :-D
