The 50 Things I Want To Do Before I Die (as of Oct. 1, 2009)

The typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) made me realize that life is short. You never know when your time is up. When it comes to death, it doesn’t matter if you’re eight or 80. When it’s your time, it’s your time. Being on this crazy planet we call earth for 20 years, I have achieved a relative amount of things. I graduated high school, I’m in college with the course I want, and I have a position in the school paper.
