I'm not yet 35 pero jo-join na rin ako sa thread na ito, kasi I get a feeling na I might become a spinster, since naisip ko na un nung bata pa ako, I was even thinking of becoming a nun noon... anyways.
What are your thoughts right now and what do you think you should focus your efforts on?
This year, I've been thinking more about preparing for my retirement. At least if in case I get old maid nga, I'm already prepared. Mejo na-focus ako maghanap ng foreclosed properties for myself, and my dependents (my aunt, seinor and alone/my dad who no one really wants to care for by his wife or my siblings/my uncle, widow and going senior who can't find a stable job but trying to earn his keep)
Also, before I get properties, or during the acquisition of properties, I will need insurance worth at least 20% worth of those acquired properties. I also want to take care of our Health, by getting HMO and medical insurance.
Everything that I have been thinking and plannin now are mostly in the financial security area. Ang hirap kasi na mag-isa ka tapos wala ka pang pera, I think it's the saddest thing, na after all your life e wala kang naipundar.
I have friends in their late 20's, 30's, pero idol ko yung mga nasa early 40's na. I want to be like them, they have their own place (condo-fully paid primary home), their own office space (more for their consultancy-research, IT, real estate, law, accounting etc), some earn 3-digit incomes in their full-time employment, they drive their own car, some finished their masteral or doctoral degree here/abroad, as in their life is in order very much and they are busy, happy, helpful, understanding women, and they are pretty, too. They are my role models now.
