Old and tired....
I must be getting old. Let me correct that. I am old. Is 33 old? It sure feels like it sometimes.
The Father of the Katipunan Andres Bonifacio died at 33 (1863-1897). Alexander the Great died at age 33 (356 BC-323 BC) The Oklahoma Bomber, Timothy McVeigh, was 33 when he was executed in 2001 (1968-2001). Jose Rizal died when he was about 35 (1861-1896). Actors John Belushi and Chris Farley died at 33. Even Jesus Christ was somewhere in that age bracket when he was crucified (8-2 BC - 29-36 AD).
Well, except for Timothy McVeigh who caused a lot of needless death and destruction, each and everyone of the names above managed to change the world or at least leave some legacy by the time they were in their thirties (arguably, McVeigh did that too, albeit in a negative way).
Am I dying? No, not really, except for the usual rate.
Could it be that I have passed my prime without realizing it?
Did life just pass me by without me being able to make a useful contribution to mankind?
Just about at the halfway mark for the average lifespan of Filipinos nowadays, and yet, still a lot of things to do, a lot of dreams unfulfilled.
It can be quite tiring, pursuing one's dream.
But that doesn't really mean that we should give up, right?
I guess I just need some balance in my life.
Maybe I should date someone younger. :-D
I must be getting senile in my old age...:-)
