another day in kate’s twisted paradise


Happy Birthday!!! :)

Happy birthday to me!

Based on my birth certificate, I was born on June 15, 1984 at 4:44 PM.  This post written in advance, I want it published on June 15, 2008 at exactly that time.  Twenty-four.  Whew!

I hope to have a good time, a good life, a good health, a wonderful life!  Yey!  I’m actually excited.  Despite being “taken aback” with me being 24, I’m excited to celebrating my birthday.  It’s a celebration of life!  🙂

On another note, I won’t be updating this blog anymore.  I find it really difficult to maintain different blogs and different sites.  So for now, I’ll stick with Multiply, my other blog, and sometimes visit Friendster.

Have a good day, everyone! 🙂

Next Month

Next month will be my 24th birthday. Twenty-four. Whew.

I feel young at 23. When I say I’m 23 years old, I feel so young. However, when I think that I’m turning 25 next year, oohhh, I feel like a lost child getting old unprepared.

Anyway, I relish each day of my life. Even with the stress of life and of work.

So what do I want for my birthday? I have a long list of wishes…

I want:

* My own place here in Metro Manila – a condo unit with parking space or a house with garage, strategically located (near Makati and Quezon City)

* Digital SLR, or even just a point and shoot digital camera that takes good quality photos

* Computer that doesn’t test my patience (laptop preferred), at least 1G RAM, lots of disk space as well

* A very reliable camera phone

I also want:

* Jacket for sort of formal occasions (but not too formal), in neutral color

* Sarong

* Book(s)

* Backpack good for work and out of town trips

* A bag for my camera

What I really want:

* Simple life full of adventure and beautiful moments

* Good health, fit body

* The love of people I love


* Continuously being edited at  I’m now starting to like Multiply over this blog… Hmm…

I Type 66 Words Per Minute

“Inspired” by Mr. Danny Arao‘s entry about his typing skills, I took the typing test he mentioned and got the following result:

66 words

Speed test

It even said:

274 points, so you achieved position 54575 of 326663 on the ranking list

You type 353 characters per minute
You have 66 correct words and
you have 0 wrong words

That’s about 6 characters per second, and approximately a single word per second. Should I aim for a faster typing skill?

Thinking About a Lot of Things a Lot, Wanting to Do a Lot. Lots.

Two thousand eight na.

I’m 23. Still young. But confused. Well, somehow. Not really.

At times I feel as if I’m getting older but without a clear direction or even vision to where I’m going. Still, sometimes I get the feeling that really, I am so young, and that thought comforts me. What makes me think about a lot of things a lot is that I want to do a lot. Lots.

It’s not that I want to really do those lots of things to the point of making a career out of each of them. It’s just that I don’t know what to do with those lots of things and how to do those lots of things. It may not be obvious, but I can be impatient.

Nothing to worry about. Oh, well.

My problem is that with those lots of things I want to do is that I really do not know what to make as a career. I’m not good with research. I prefer to make my advocacy a personal undertaking separate from my work where I earn. I hate corporate jobs, bu I may still take a chance on it. So, what?

Now, I’m learning how to use and take good pictures with a film SLR. Nice. Although expensive.

Live on.

Live each day superbly! Yeah.

Happy Earth Day!

I have just realized that yesterday was April 22 and Earth Day.

Despite being late, I have to greet the world a HAPPY EARTH DAY!  It’s still April 22 in other parts of the world, anyway.

Moreover, a lifestyle that is not destructive to our dear earth should be lived everyday.

I can’t write much about Earth Day, so here’s just an article I found in MSN — click here.
