it's august and i turn 32 in 30 days. i wonder whether i should submit myself to the exercise of writing 32 random thoughts on 32 random things as i did before i turned 30, and which i wasn't able to complete before i turned 31. many things are taking place and i can't quite find focus. we shall see. for now, i'm just curious as to how all these things are going to turn: these things that have been my main preoccupation these past weeks. it's very interesting, and i've laid out so many plans on the table. i wonder whether i'll be turning any cards down, or shuffling them. right now, i'm concerned about organizing a party. it's been a good year for me, and i'd like to share all my blessings with my friends.
