Bohol on my mind
This year, I will make big things happen for me.
It all started with a whim and wishful thinking. A trip to Baguio? Why not? It's been quite a while since I've been up north. There was not much rhyme and reason to it, save for the thought that James' trainer had a good nose for ukay-ukay shops (or ridiculously low-priced thrift stores), and could point us in the right direction.
That, and crisp mountain air, strawberries, and chocolate-covered cornflakes from Good Shepherd Convent. You can never go wrong with treats from Good Shepherd.
But that was on a whim, and whims born from very little time, money, and foresight make for poor thought fodder.
So, a friend of mine recommended, why not Bohol?
Indeed, why not?
I'd wanted to explore Bohol for a very long time. I guess you might say this plan had to take a backseat to Life in general over the past few years. I fell in love with the idea of Bohol a long, long time ago, forgot about it, then remembered it again.
It's something of wish fulfillment for me, and it will certainly to feel good to have something big and exciting to work toward again.
So, yes. I am going to take a trip to Bohol for my birthday this year.
The trip will most likely set me back by P10k to P15k, and that's almost three-fourths what I paid for my dining set. (For short, it certainly is a lot of money.) This is going to require a bit more discipline, saving skills and money management on my part, but I certainly think it's doable. It's very doable.
Money's been a little tight this start of the year, but I know I'll find ways. Before next week is over, I aim to be able to put my first contribution to the Travel Fund. Heck, I just might do it now, but I have to make sure I have enough to pay for my bills and other living expenses first.
Well, here goes.
