  • Curiosity

  • Longevity
    • People in my family, at least the women, age fairly well.
  • Organization
  • Self-discipline and somewhat decent habits
    • I thrive within structure.

Economics has taught me that I don't have to be the smartest person in the room just as long as I'm not the dumbest. And even if I were the dumbest, there are still lots of other rooms.

Because Sara told me to write it down:

  • Endeavor to build good habits
  • Financial independence
  • Invest in myself
  • Keep on the sustaining rituals
    • Exercise
    • Family dinners
    • Nights out with friends
  • Keep overhead low
  • Sustain research-based outlook on life
    • The goal is to learn more
  • Write
  • Travel
    • How did I not add travel on this list the first time?

    • 'Anything worth doing, is worth doing badly'
  • Michael Cunningham, The Hours
    • 'We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep. It’s as simple and ordinary as that. A few jump out windows, or drown themselves, or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us are slowly devoured by some disease, or, if we’re very fortunate, by time itself. There’s just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds and expectations, to burst open and give us everything we’ve ever imagined, though everyone but children (and perhaps even they) know these hours will inevitably be followed by others, far darker and more difficult. Still, we cherish the ...

  • Learn martial arts
    • I’ve been boxing for a year now and I want to add kicks and a ground game to that foundation. This is also about deepening my knowledge of human movement, and really, what an excellent way to get fit.
  • Solo birthday trip every year
    • In need of rituals to mark the years; 2016 was Baguio, where to 2017?
  • Independence milestones
    • Because independence is a process and a long drawn out one. What Toni Morrison said is ‘not inevitable’ and most hard-won.

  • You know how certain people are endowed with physical beauty? How they can seemingly harness all that attention with a mere bat of their lashes?
    • Yeah, that's not me.
  • I've been blessed with a lot of things: intellect, athleticism, wit etc.
    • But not blessed to the degree of excellence.
    • At best, above-average in most things.
    • But certainly not above-average when it comes to math (!)
  • I like writing in fragments
    • As you can see.
    • Writing, in general, keeps me sane.
    • And yes, I exaggerate. Sometimes.
  • I find that I constantly have a narrative in my head.
