Moving on, I can also say that I'm getting old mentally and emotionally. My preferences and goals are not the same as when I was younger. I used to think a lot about not-so-serious-stuff but now, I'm starting to have an interest in things like:
- how to be financially stable
- investing on something
- what do I really want to pursue
- marry and have my own family (someday)
Well, in general, living life to the fullest and having an impact to this world.
At this point in my life, I really dream of understanding and discovering a cure for Alzheimer's. Yes it all started in watching the movie Still Alice. Who would have thought that a film would have such effect on me? And also, with my ninety four-year old grandmother who has dementia. But having worked in the field of plant research since I graduated (basically in my entire career), I'm just not sure if the field of biomedical research would accept me. But I hope it would. I just can't wait to study something new and help other people.
Onto some other things. Love life? It is still non-existent. But I know I will find love when the right time comes. Just to be clear, I am not desperate in having a romantic relationship with just any other guy out there. I have standards and I will stick to that.
So yeah, I guess this is what getting old really looks like - You may be ageing (with unwanted physical effects) but you get to have a deeper sense of life.
I'll still look for that miracle cream though. Haha!
