Well, tomorrow is mah birthday, and I’ll be turning 18…
Will that make a difference on me?! I guess so, for 18 is now considered as a legal age.. Which means, there is no more excuses if I happen to break a law. I’m not a minor anymore by tomorrow. Thus it mean I should jaywalk or vandalize or throw a softdrink can on the overpass?? Is it necessary to fool around for the last time? Well, I can still do that if I want but the problem is I don’t want to. I am now excused for Child Abuse and Corrupting Minors law, which means if it happens to me (starting tomorrow), it will not be called as it thus so, it will be called as Physical Injury or Harassment…. But why am I think’n about those things…. Those were just drawbacks of what we call “growing old”…and besides, it wont happen (what a morbid mind?).
Besides being an adult will give me more privileges (and incentives maybe)… starting tomorrow, I can go watching restricted films. I can now enter the movie house without the feeling of nervousness when I’ll submit my ticket to the guard. I can fight the fact that I am no minor (even though I look a little more younger)!! Hahah!! Just joking around… well, for sure it won’t be a porn film that I’ll be watching, R18 maybe for some scenes may have some sort of brutality, domestic violence, disturbing or a little of sexuality which may look a little more vulgar (why am I thnk’n so morbid)..
What the.. I was supposed to talk about my life starting tomorrow, not the restricted film that I’ll be watching!!
What else? Uhm, starting tomorrow, I can start drinking R.H. (Red Horse beer) and do some night parties LEGALLY… theirs no problem anymore, I exempt myself to the Curfew Law here… hey, I am now 18…
But is that what it really means to become an adult? I guess its not… it means that after tonight, when I woke up in bed, I’ll be obliged to be more responsible. Turning 18 is not about partying, R18s and drinking alcohols (well, I drink alcohol and go night outs since then), it’s about knowing yourself more, discovering your potentials. As if the end is finally near.. I will not be this young for long, I guess it is time for me to do more things. Try some new stuffs, take risks for self betterment and do the things which I really wanted to do for a very long time… actually, I started doing that already. I climb a mountain and reach the peak of it… I engaged myself to new groups of people. New breeds actually, to learn how to camouflage with their individuality which is new to me… I learned to accept others personality and accept my own too.. I push my limits to widen my capabilities. I aimed to have more friends, and I deed… and I sincerely keep them… I learned to overcome my weakness, my inner child . I successfully deed it.. now, those inner childishness where just memories, which had hurt me and now, I consider it so special…
Turning 18 drives me to become a more mature individual, but it doesn’t push myself to have it in an instant…
I guess, it is just the point that you will have to say goodbye to the word MINOR, but it doesn’t mean forgetting the real you and try to be somebody else..
Wapi burtday to me!!!

Quotable Quotes form THE ALCHEMIST
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho… Well, it is one of mah favorite books. The fact that I had finished reading the entire pages for 2 days, made me proud of mah self ( it rarely happens, I happened to finished reading Anne Frank, the Diary of a Young Girl after 6 months and a five months old Homecoming by Cynthia Voight is left unfinished inside mah room)…
The Alchemist and The Little Prince where the only books that I happened to finished reading for days. And the rest, if not weeks, months. And worst? Either unfinished or unread…
In The Alchemist,I had noticed that Paulo Coelho here is fond of placing proverbs, quotes and lines, I managed to read the book again and compile my favorite quotations:
“It is the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary; only wise men are able to understand them.”
“At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”
Personal Legend- it is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.
“The Soul of the World is nourished by people’s happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy and jealousy. To realize one’s Personal Legend is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one.”
“And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
“When a person really desires for something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”
“Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time."
“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally, he doesn’t know it.”
“If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise. If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they occur.”
“The darkest hour of the night came just before the dawn.”
“Don’t forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else. And don’t forget the language of omens. And above all, don’t forget to follow your Personal Legend through to its conclusion.”
“The secret of happiness is to see all marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon.”
“That’s the way it always is. It is called the Principle of Favorability. When we play cards the first time, you are always sure to win. Beginners luck. It is because there is a force that wants you top realize your Personal Legend; it whets your appetite with a taste of success.”
I am Martin and I presume you know that… This blog is not for my personal interest only but I offer this also to those people who I consider as “someone who I officially knew” or if not, someone who knows me but never got a chance to know them personally (some sort of 1st degree-2nd degree friends)…
And if your neither from those two, and you are just someone else browsing the net and just happened to linked to my valuable thing that you may consider as a rubbish, I hope you enjoyed reading some of its part. Well, I don’t care if you don’t.
I placed a chat box on the shout corner not because I consider your comments in improving my blog.. I was just curious on how this thing works.. so please, place something dur to prove myself: that stuff is really operational… But if it’s a compliment, I change my mind, I deeply appreciate it.
Thankz for visiting mah blog!
