  1. Hi! I didn't know you're a nurse too! :) I'm sure 2016 will fulfill those lists for you!

    1. Mag dilang-angel ka sana, Alissa! Haha

  2. I don't know why but I started to mentally tick the things I've already done from your list. Haha! But, yeah, you've done a lot already and congrats on seeing Maroon 5 perform live! Their tickets were sold out so fast!

    Love, Richel. | Richel Goes Places

    1. Like what? I want to know! Hehe
      Thanks! It was their Overexposed tour. I was lucky enough to score a ticket before it got sold out!

  3. I say YES to emergency fund! You'll never know when you're going to need it! Hope you tick off a whole more from your list of goals this year! :)

  4. I don't think you'll like the get so drunk and wake up with a hangover. But you've graduated college and you're a registered nurse so I think you have the pass to get drunk haha. I like the "Celebrate a real Filipino Festival". Even though I've lived most of my life in the Philippines, me and my family just never engaged in things like this. I would love to go experience the Philippines all over again, with fresh eyes. Good luck on your journey! I plan to read the entire Bible as well.

    1. I know the hangover might suck but you know, YOLO. Haha
      Every year, for 5 consecutive years that I was in the Philippines, my cousin's wife would always ask me to join fiesta in her province and I would just decline. I am totally regretting that now!

  5. Good luck with your career goals! I'm focusing on looking for a girl bestfriend, too! LOL. I noticed most of my friends are guys or guys. And while nothing is wrong with that, I need girly advice sometimes. Haha

    1. Thanks! I do have girl friends but they're all like bridesmaid kind and not the maid of honor kind! Haha

  6. What a fun and interesting list. Good luck! Write about and share your experiences; I'm sure a lot will be interested to read them. I, for one, will do so gladly. :)
