1. Taking care of my body.

    • I will sleep 7 to 8 hours a day.
    • I will eat more and gain weigh. A body weight of 38 kilos is not sustainable. Ideally, my weight should be between 46 and 54 kilograms.
    • I will spend more time outdoors, in the mountains or the beach.
    • I will exercise regularly - be it yoga, swimming, walking or a combination thereof.
    • I will be mindful of my dental visits and the yearly pap smear.

2. Taking care of my mind.

    • I will sit and meditate at least 15 minutes every day.
    • I will read a book or one story a week.
    • I will write poetry again.

A list of songs in a scrap of paper. I don't know why I have this or what's it for:

    • The Sun Always Shine on TV by Aha
    • Happiness by Goldfrapp
    • Young Americans by David Bowie
    • Behind the Wheel by Depeche Mode
    • Venus in Furs by Velvet Underground
    • You Showed Me by The Turtles
    • Devil in a Sleeping Bag by Willie Nelson
    • Slow Nerve Action by the Flaming Lips
    • Broken Boy Soldier by The Raconteurs
    • Wake Up by Arcade Fire

Maybe I stumbled on the list on the internet. Maybe it was meant for me. Maybe I'll find out once I get around to downloading the songs.

  • Swimming regularly and properly. It exercises my body and it makes me aware of what I can do in the pool. When I am able to do just one more lap, it gives me a sense of accomplishment... Though I still have to work on my breaststroke.
  • Reading books. I am particularly fond of science and mathematics book both in reference form or in popular form. I also read a lot of science fiction, graphic novels and contemporary literature. On top of my head, I read a lot of: Isaac Asimov, Alice Walker, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Alice Munro, Philip Pullman, Mark Twain, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking and Calvin & Hobbes.
  • Eating good food. I like Thai and Japanese food. I also like pizza and pasta, once in a while. But my favorite is the Filipino bulalo.
  • Spending time with my nieces Adrienne and...
