"Di ko kaya ang ginagawa nyo sir,
Pagod na tayo d2 sa kasal,

Grabe!"
My reply: Hehehe, live your life to the fullest.

Miko: "Sinong gustong gumawa nitong Breathing Aparatus Control Board? Saka itong anti-terrorist checklist?"
Cadet1: Kami Miks.
Cadet2: Miks, kami na lang!
Cadet3: Sir, kami kulang pa. Dapat kami ang gumawa!
Training Officer 1: Hala Sir Miko, anong ginawa mo sa mga kadete mo?! Bakit nag-aagawan ng trabaho? Sa department namin, nagtuturuan at nagpapasahan.
Cadet1: Nahawa kami ke Miko, W... Workaholic!
Miko: Xempre, living life to the fullest.

Trip to Pangasinan and/or Zambales in August. Finish design and construction of interior of own room and the family entertainment room in September.


... work.
play.
earn.
design.
date.
rinse.
repeat...


Papa: Hindi ka napapagod 'nak? Para kang pating. galaw ka ng galaw...
Miko: Kaya nga 'pa. Para akong pating, mamatay ako pag huminto akong gumalaw.

Colleague: You need to find your anchor, or anything that can make you grounded. Mag-asawa ka na kaya?
Miko: No way!!! Marami pa akong gagawin!

Boss1: Miko-san. We like very much your contribution in the program. We believe that without you, it might collapse. But always remember, first priority... your health. We very much fear you overwork yourself. Please rest whenever needed. Understand?
Miko: Wakaremasu!

I'm thinking about it now. Maybe I do move around alot. That it's about time to find that relationship that can (at least in a way) keep my feet grounded. Or that badly needed rest. Maybe, all of them are right...

But if I stop, I won't feel i'm living. What I learned keeps me experiencing and creating. And the result of what I'm doing keeps me addicted. As my experience grows, so does my perspective, and meaning. As the places i've been to expanded, so my acquaintances grow numerous - including those moments I share with them in between.

In my work, I do not aim to be the
Best, I aim to be the Only one who can do it. In my family and friends I do not aim to be with them Everytime, but to be there in that very particular time when no one is around and they badly need someone. I do not simply want to leave this world with a Family, I aim to leave it with a Legacy.

And that, for me, is living life to the fullest. Spending my life on activities that can outlast it.
