Substituting Awesome with Awesome

I moped for a bit after coming to the conclusion that I probably won’t be able to go to the JYJ concerts.

Then I reflected on my plans for this year:

  • adventures and clubbing in Bohol and Cebu
  • badminton games with the office crew
  • practice swimming
  • Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan: island-hopping, underground river, beach bumming
  • start boxing again
  • family outing in Subic
  • girls’ wild trip in Hong Kong and Macau
  • Vancouver, Tennessee, Mexico — very tentative plans
  • climb Mt. Pulag
  • chillaxing in Batanes
  • South Korea: sea, temple visits, Hallyu pilgrimage, autumn color viewing
  • scuba diving certification in Coron

That’s a rather full schedule. Moreover, it will all cost a considerable dent in my funds despite my efforts to fatten the savings account with a thriftier lifestyle. If I go wild chasing after JYJ, I might not be able to do other things on this list now, would I?

So far, my Coron plans are vague, and could very well be scrapped because I don’t have a travel buddy for that yet and no one’s willing to take scuba diving lessons with me because they’re scaredy-cats. Since I can’t go see JYJ, I might as well put the funds that I would have allocated to their concert and my stalking for my scuba diving and get myself a certification. Not quite as squeal-worthy as seeing Kim Jaejoong’s rippling abs live, but exciting in a different way. Girl’s gotta look at the bright side.

 

Better start my research for the scuba-diving plans then.
