    I believe I am a spiritual being having a human

    experience and in this experience my spirit or soul is on a journey. In this regard from the day I was born or came to this human experience I have evolved many times and will continue to do so because I am only a work in progress. There is no end to this evolving growth process...

    I am indeed still a work in progress.

    And I honestly don't want to be. I want to know stuff and be able to do stuff already. However, for me, it's not like that. And so I'm stuck with making mistakes and learning all the big stuff such as being compassionate, patient understanding and doing what's right etc blah...

    The makeup of our family is changing.

    Born in Manila, PH. 100% pure Filipino. Often times when asked who I am, I stop, think and wonder then smile. Maybe because I, myself, don't know what the answer is. JUDGMENT - In our family, I'm known as the "black or dark grey sheep" yet the most caring and principled (they...

    Sometimes I regret venting here.

    Not because I've gotten overly negative reactions or anything (you all have been generally gracious with me so far, so I thank you), but I feel sort of whiny and I wouldn't want anyone to think of me in that way. Sometimes I write to figure myself out, as if I don't know what...

    I may cut myself. I may feel suicidal sometimes.

    I may suffer from mental illness. But I'll get my pills straightened out, I'll work hard, and continue dreaming of being a scientist. Deep down I know, that indeed, someday, sometime, some year, I will indeed become a scientist.
