before I turned 30 parang wala naman akong "what to do list" or bucket list before hitting the big 3-0. Pero ngayong 30 na ko I just realized na super blessed pala ako. Reading bucket lists online, parang OK naman pala ang naging journey ko.


- Naka gimik naman ako. Late bloomer kasi. 2013 was crazy.
- Nakapag travel na din with friends and with the family.
- Perfume collection- Gusto ko lang talaga nito.
- Few Jewelry
- Bags na "mejo" out of budget.
- Cut my hair really short.
- Brand new car
- Building our house


We just transferred to our new house last month, still on my 30th. Ok na ko jan.

During my early twenties, I was busy with work, masteral studies, and lovelife. Eh napagod ako. Kaya sa mid to late twenties, I traveled (which I still do), watched a lot of concerts (here and abroad) and met a lot of people. Di ko naman pinabayaan work ko kaya lagi namang napo-promote. Though di naiwasan ang mapaisip at ma-stress days before my birthday kung ano ba mga na-achieve ko sa buhay at kung tama ba mga pinaggagagawa ko. Haha.

konti na lang 30 na rin ako. eto goals ko na sinet ko sa sarili ko nung mid 20s. medyo adik kasi ako sa pagpa-plano ng buhay ko.  ;D

1. makapag travel sa ibang bansa - check
2. magkaron ng sariling bahay - sa tulong ng pag-ibig - check
3. makabili ng sariling sasakyan - may pambili na
4. makaipon ng 1m cash - on the way na
5. magka baby - sana sana

so ayon, liban sa magkaron ng baby, gusto ko puro materyal na bagay. haha.

I am now 31 and turning 32 in a few months time. Here are the things I did before hitting 30

At 23- Went abroad for work and became independent
At 24 - 26 - I travelled
At 27- Got married and bought a car for my parents
At 28 - bought a house
At 30 - Became a Mommy

The downside is I am still working abroad and in around 2 years I have already saved up for financial freedom. By that time I will be with our son na. Matututukan ko na ang schooling nya. God willing! :)

I am turning 32 this year.  I never reflected on this when I was younger pero eto siguro ang mga masasabi kong "hindi na masama" na naging milestones ko:

1.  Late bloomer ako sa pagtravel so I started travelling around PH at 26.  Pero twice na akong nakapunta sa US - one when I was 20 and the last was when I was 26 din. Oops, sagot ng parents ko both US trips.
2.  Nakabili ng mumurahing studio unit sa Paranaque at age 25.  This was with the help of HDMF.
3.  Naparenovate ang hand me down home with the help of hubby and a loan from parents.
4.  Got married at age 28.  Then, I was due to give birth on my 30th birthday.  Son was a few days early.  Achievement ba to?
5.  Established na ang career ko.

Ang hindi ko naachieve eh maging financially liquid.  Though I have four insurance policies with Philam and hubby has one. 

Well, I guess not too bad.
When you want something, the whole universe conspires on helping you to achieve it.

I'm 28 now, and though I feel like ang dami ko pang gustong gawin, marami na din akong milestones sa buhay in my 20s.

- Nakapagtravel with friends and family locally and abroad
- Solo travel local and abroad (major one was my first US trip -- it was my first loooong flight)
- Finished my Masters degree
- Passed my US licensure
- Nagpa-pixie! Major achievement to talaga. Haha
- Bought my first car (though share kami ng husband ko dito)

But my major accomplishments include mentoring my students for their license and professional practice, getting married, and now expecting a baby.
...all adventurous women do.

Sometimes you turn back. Sometimes you walk away. And sometimes, you find the place you're meant to be, & you stay there.

I'm in my early 20s:

1. Travel solo locally and internationally - done and no plans to stop anytime soon
2. Backpack nang medyo matagal, shortest na siguro 2 months kahit within Asia lang
3. Obtain my PhD - Eto medyo alanganin pa 'ko, MS ko nga 'di ko matapos-tapos lol pero no pressure, I still have ample time haha
4. Buy a car - done
5. Take significant risks re my appearance - Sported a pixie for the longest time, had my hair permed and colored often, etc. ;D My friends tell me ang tapang ko sa hair.
6. Pagbigyan my "luho" - signature bags, makeup, skincare etc. - Ang sarap maging dalaga. ;D

Not bad. Ngayon ko lang na-realize na never ko naging goal yumaman o magkapamilya. Should I be a little worried? :D

Move out of my parents' house - Ito talaga ang feeling kong biggest goal na naachieve ko before 30. Iba ang feeling na maging independent, and many times na sobrang inisip ko na sayang ang nagagastos ko sa rent and other expenses that I never worried about before pero worth it talaga. I've grown to have a lot of respect for people who live on their own, more than people with cars or other expensive things. Other than that, the rest don't even seem to matter that much.

In my early 20s so before I hit 30, I want to:

1. Travel the country or other countries alone - I really want to do this. I feel like I'm independent and dependent at the same time. Independent cause I'm more comfortable doing things on my own ; dependent since I have so much more to learn.

2. Learn how to play the piano or drums - My dream since I was a kid.

3. Buy my own car - Probably next year. Still have to save more.

4. Be a well-known beauty/book blogger

5. Get married - I want to achieve this before I turn 29 lol

1. Purchase my own house.
2. Live overseas for at least 1 year.
3. Start a family.
4. Travel.
5. Have my own business. - ito na lang ang kailangan ko i-work on hopefully sooner. :)

Mine was Europe, buy own place, a car, designer handbag. Ang babaw talaga ng bucket list ko dati, materialistic lang. I wish I lived more mindfully, but I guess it's not too late.

Ang regret ko was not taking care of my health. In my 20's I didn't work out and ate a lot of junk food. Ngayon lang ako nagca-catch up sa pagiging active. May mga taba na tuloy na mahirap tanggalin.

I also wish I started saving earlier. Ngayon lang din ako nagca-catch up. I didn't realize the popwer of compounding back then. Puro gasto ako. Kaya tip ko sa mga in their 20's, save 20% of your income agad.

i think most of us here have the same goals before 30. :D i'm on my thirties na rin btw.

i want to have a traditional family din so getting married, having a baby and buying a house were on top of my list. but i realized i should have also started making connections with the right people on my early 20s. napa-barkada kasi ako with happy-go-lucky people before kaya late bloomer ako sa pagiging matured and domesticated. hehe.

ngayon, i have many friends but the closest ones i have are the ones who also have the same goals like me. kaya ngayon our barkada is a group of happily married moms with kids. at least ang weekend namin ngayon is more on family lunch outs and outing. we discuss about our financial plans, traveling, managing the household, work etc. it may sound boring but it's fulfilling for me. at least i don't have to explain myself if i can't go to a certain event because we all know our priorities.

Napaisip tuloy ako because of this thread

1. Be financially secure that I can give more to my family and have more sponsored children for schooling
2. Be more active in charities/social programs
3. Advanced in my spiritual studies
4. Travel to at least 5 countries
5. Get married? Haha

The months leading to my 30th birthday were messed up. I had a pre-30 meltdown and I was all over the place. I just wanted time to stop. But you know what, the 30s is not so bad. I actually enjoy this stage.

Anyway, on to my list (mostly geared towards getting to know myself and enriching my existence):

1. Landed my dream job
2. Traveled a lot and often
3. Ticked off a bunch of bucket list items like watching an opera at the Bolshoi and building a personal library
4. Collected some really interesting life stories
5. Learned to manage my finances
6. Made working out a habit
7. Got into art appreciation; Practiced watercolor painting
8. Moved out of my parents' home
