RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT

naalala ninyo pa ba yung feeling ng being in your late teens to early 20’s? yung wild, reckless and free feeling na akala mo indestructible ka. yung kahit ano pwede mong gawin, tikman, hititin at subukan dahil alam mo walang masamang mangyayari sa iyo. invincibility – ha! hindi naman ako sumagad nung bagets ako although marami rin akong napag daanan. i did smoke a lot and i started early. for the longest time, gusto ko itong tanggalin but i didn’t have the will to stop it. when i was in my 20’s ang sabi ko ay i’ll quit by age 30. it came and went pero hindi ko nahinto. i finally did at age 38 and it’s one of the things i’ve done that i’m really proud of. heto ako ngayon at age 40, progressing into the “boring life”. no more smoking, less drinking, no more late nights. impak, my idea of a good time now is sleeping on the couch (probably snoring loudly) habang naka unan kay jet who is laughing heartily at enjoy na enjoy sa panonood ng mga sintunado sa american idol.

  1. hay naku batjay, tandang tanda ko yang feeling na yan dahil overextended to my 30s ang ganyang lifestyle ko, bwahahah —
    no regrets naman. ngayon mellow na mellow. that’s what the 40s do to you, it’s actually different.. and great 🙂

  2. hi misisP.

    i’m starting to find out how it actually feels. it is indeed a different kind of fun. i love to stay at home more instead of being out. i don’t go out as much as i used to. in fact, jet and i had dinner during the weekend with my classmates who are based in LA. if i were younger, it would have been non stop inuman. we just went out to dinner and everybody ate in small portions.

    nakakatawang isipin.

  3. pinaalala mo yang teen years na yan to early 20’s, tama ka, iba na noon kaysa ngayon..pero totoo daw na more and more people are starting to live longer nowadays dahil daw up to this point in their (mine too)life specially na nagkakaidad na, only the body gets older but the mind still stays the same like your youth was just yesterday..and it’s a big boost in life to enjoy whatever is left of it..naging hilig ko na rin yang mag tulog at manood ng tv..yung mga mall days ko adios na..

  4. hay naku, talagang:

    “Old age should burn and rave at close of day;”

  6. That was such a cozy stay-at-home evening you painted mylab. Oo nga, after having been there and done that, you always turn for home.

  8. parang nagsawa na ako sa formula nila na ipakita yung mga sintunado. kaya yan – nakakatulog ako. i do however look forward to the actual singing competion when they move to LA.

  9. hi caloy. thank you – batch 77. wow. we did have a lot of common teachers – mr. chavez, de luna ang singson. it does bring back a lot of memories. good ones for me because i had a great time at notre dame. good luck and take care,
