i think this blog is dying…

i just don’t have the time to write anything important anymore. i have about seven drafts in my inbox, and none has gone past the publish button. i always decide to save them up after getting into them for about three paragraphs or so. i wanted to write about relationships and how i feel i don’t need them, but what’s the use. so instead of ranting with words i’m bound to eat later anyway, let me just tell you what is in store for me in the next few weeks.

this weekend i am torn between signing up for a training climb for this year’s application period, or my batchmates’ beach party, an explo climb in tarlac and a bluehearts climb in batangas. the week after that i am zoooming all the way down to southern metro to help out my friends who are joining this 24-hour bike-a-thon challenge. then on august 18 and 19 i have two funruns scheduled. on august 26 there is another funrun i am joining.

in september i am joining the san mig enduro adventure race. i am also following up on the annual isla verde clean up operations. if plans push through i will also probably help out some upm applicants conduct an environmental activity in september. and then of course there’s the dreaded 10km run and the leve2 climb, to which i have committed myself to.

in october i will probably join the induction at pulag, since i want to tackle the akiki trail already — i owe it to myself. then there’s a uplb run whcih i want to join again because of the trail — last weekend i joined the makiling challenge and it was an excruciating uphill run almost all the way. i want to do it again!

in november there’s a 21km run at subic which i intend to join. this is in fulfillment of my lifegoal to finally run a distance longer than 15km, and hopefully in sub-2 hours. and this is just in connection with my hobbies and athletic involvement.

i am still actively engaged with two mass movements — the anti-mining advocacy and the labor federation which i both support, both with their own plans and activities in the next few years, and of course my full-time job which i am still adjusting to but still excites me because it is so new to me — local governance and fund-raising.

and then of course there’s some backlog, like this research i am doing with a well-known intellectual — which reminds me i have to finish up reading so i can do my research design. and then there’s another raket i am doing for a network of NGOs which is due by august.

and on top of it all, i am writing up a concept paper to help out upm founder kuya boboy in organizing the fed congress which upm hosts next year. this early i can smell a couple of explo climbs where i can sign up. it is very exciting because he envisions the fed congress to revolve around a theme i am keenly interested in: eco-tourism.

and in my head i have a vision of myself in five years. i will be working in an NGO that i built myself, and it will be working on environmental issues, as an advocacy, information and research center. each step is a step in that direction, i guess. but in the meantime, my sked is choking full with commitments that quite frankly, it should be no wonder why i will not be able to log in as often as i want to. because there was a time when i waited for life to happen. and now, i think, with all due gratefulness, i think life is just about to sweep me off my feet.
