I have so many thoughts bottled up inside me right now — why my ex made contact again 6 months after the break-up, why my used-to-be favorite penpal redefined “soon” as 32 days and counting (damn, we used to write to each other every day), musings about spring and why seasons and people change, why tulips pop but only a few notice, why I am poor, when I will get to buy a new and better camera phone, will I be pretty?, will I be rich?.. Que sera, sera..
And so, to divert my mind from all those thoughts mentioned above and the many others behind, I decided to make an entry about the BIG dream I am dreaming to accomplish. I think this is every traveler’s dream: to step on the soil of every sovereign country there is on Earth. While I strongly refuse to live a pathetic life of a poor girl from an emerging economic state that is PH, I cannot help but feel hopeless sometimes. So this is to remind me that there always, always a reason to be hopeful! This is something to look forward to. Darn, I love lists!
Those in italic are war- or disease-stricken lands. I believe the body is the temple of God, and hence, we are responsible somehow for its safety. So, nope, I exclude those lands from the list, unless a miracle happens and their security becomes more stable.
