Happily Blessed

what in 2014?

if i will travel time and be in 2004, i would be surprised to know that within 10 years:

...i will have a daughter who likes pink, craft and lipstick

...baking is my favorite, the most relaxing, of all past-times

...i will master the classic crackling pork roast

...on my way to a PhD, writing a classic on housing politics

...i will move from attic to rented room to apartment to condo, in a surprisingly homey neighborhood within an urban jungle

...weight will stabilize at 123lbs (from a high of 180lbs at pregnancy!) a year, i'm into yoga, tennis and swimming

...will work in hydropower - in a job that i love

...will find my pack in Aboitiz, and discover the value of leadership

...wearing long hair is no longer my personality

...the practice of feng shui is now a personal, live-and-let-live disposition

...that good old friends have come and stayed, no matter where they may be physically

...that family is a treasure of memories created in a pink bungalow surrounded by a garden of orchids, a pack of askals led by a 10-year old veteran, and the endless chirping of birds atop an aratiles tree
