It is October 1, 2012. 

I am now entering a new phase as a blogger… my joining the BC Bloggers as in “busy” bloggers and Blog exChange as founded by Paula of!

I heard about this from my friend, Charm, who also encouraged me to start blogging actually!
She told me it increased her network, thus, her stats and most of all, she found bloggers with like-minds and who she developed friendships with!

I just had to find out about this… and indeed, I found BC Bloggers!

I hope to meet photobloggers with happy and inspirational thoughts to share.

Somehow I was hoping my inspirational blog would have a farther reach and touch more people!

Want to have more links? Let’s all join BC Bloggers!!!

I grabbed this from my friend, Chai's Facebook status!

3 stages of life:
Teens - you have all the time and energy, but no money....

Workers - you have the money and energy, but no time....

Elders - you have the time and money , but no energy....

Lesson: Enjoy life and all the things you have at the moment because you can't have everything all at once...

I do agree this happens with people from "my batch". I may say I am a Gen Xer! We still sort of prioritize our work and find it so hard to leave. Generally, we focus more on saving for the rainy days!
From Wikipedia:
Generation X (also known as the 13th Generation and the Baby Busters) is the generation generally defined as those born after the baby boom ended, from 1965 to 1981. The term generally includes people born during all or part of the 1960s: According to Strauss-Howe generational theory, 1961 is the starting point, though other sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, consider it to have started in the mid-1960s. It ends in late 1970s to early 1980s, usually not later than 1981 or 1982. The term has also been used in different times and places for a number of different subcultures or countercultures since the 1950s.


Members of Generation X work to live rather than live to work. They appreciate fun in the workplace and espouse a work hard/play hard mentality.

However, the younger generation have a more confident, social, passionate character and very updated with the world and they often express and celebrate the here and now!
From Wikipedia:
Generation Y, the Millennial Generation (or Millennials), Generation Next, Net Generation, Echo Boomers, describes the generation following Generation X from probably 1981 to 1999. As there are no precise dates for when the Millennial generation starts and ends, commentators have used birth dates ranging somewhere from the mid-1970s to the early 2000s (decade). Experts differ on the start date of Generation Y. William Strauss and Neil Howe use the start year as 1982, and end years around the turn of the millennium, while others use start years that are earlier or later than 1982, and end years in the mid-1990s. One segment of this age-group has often been called the “eighties babies” generation, in reference to the fact that they were born between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 1989.

It is a generation of strong-willed, passionate, and optimistic youth. They have great expectations and are known for expecting (and demanding) to get what they want. 
They have grown up engaging with the Internet. This had led to their expectation of being able to obtain information at exceedingly rapid speeds.

Somehow,  the Generation Y really try to find the time to be able to enjoy whatever money they have while they have all the energy!

I have noted, though, that the Gen Xers, however, have also appreciated enjoying life and taking time while they have the energy and so, we notice many of our friends have included travel as part of their schedules.

Well, it helps a lot that airlines have become more competitive and give lots of promo fares and accessibility to neighboring places, like through good roads and the nautical highway have also made roadtrips more attractive and easy to do.

I guess the point still goes back to:
Lesson: Enjoy life and all the things you have at the moment because you can't have everything all at once!!!
