im such a geek. i bought a packet of the xmen series 2 trading cards last year and got excited when i trumped on cyclops, havok, wolverine and storm! jackpot! i remember in high school id buy the cheap local print version of this from the vendors near the school, never realizing it was pirated material 🙂 i found the real versions on sale for 100 a pop at some comic book store in galleria. happiness is a fresh deck of trading cards 🙂

it’s a month past the new year and ive been asking myself what personal goals i should make for the year. and perhaps change some things ive been doing for the betterment of self. im not a new-year resolution kind of guy but januaries bring me to evaluate my past work and check on future goals. being an adult now more than before and after the death of my grandmother, i do realize that a lot of what life offers us is fluff. excesses. and right now, i see much more clearly that there are really very few simple and essential things out there. love of God. family. health. and sleep.
the question that plagues me to answer is what happens if i die today? im turning 32 this year. in this day of technology and preservatives, that’s the new middle age. probably anything of excess after turning 65 years old is a blessing. i may be earning enough and at least i have social security plus a pag-asa and philhealth account but that’s it. i have no other life insurance, pension plan, funeral plan, no additional medical benefits.
