12 Things of This and That, Then and Now

In one of the blogging sites I joined before, there were also random questions that were asked and I want to share one of those sets of questions that I joined. This can be part of your slam book challenge if you want to. Here is the original post where these questions were taken from.

I wanted to revisit these questions and see if they still ring true to me after three years. Yes, three years ago, the younger me answered these questions:

1. What 3 meals would have before heading to the International Space Station?

2. What section of the newspaper would you be?

3. If you were immortal, what age would you choose to stop aging at and why?

4. What sport would you compete in, if you were in the Olympics?

5. If you had to go back in time to live the rest of your life where/when would you go?

6. If time and money were no barrier what would you create?

7. Have you ever completed anything on your bucket list?

8. What would be the most surprising scientific discovery imaginable?

9. Are you a good witch or bad witch?

10. If you had to teach a class on one thing, what would you teach?

11. Which band / artist – dead or alive would play at your funeral?

12. What book, movie read/seen recently you would recommend and why?

These are my answers then and now. My then answers were those in the photos.

Lubi-lubi or Nilupak

I don't know what the regulations are when you go to space. However, now I would like to eat bulalo (beef soup), chicken liver and gizzard adobo and pakbet/pinakbet still (sautéed mixed vegetables) but I want the version of my friend wherein she added tomato sauce.

Same. Nothing changed. I am still into these three things. I was hoping then that I would be upgrading my camera by instead I resorted to using phones as it is lighter and more convenient to carry.

I would like to add another 10 years. I still feel I haven't accomplished the things I wanted to accomplish.

I still haven't learned proper swimming and diving. I was hoping then by now I should have learned either one.

Anyway, I have been walking/jogging more lately so I guess I'd go for track events.

Looking back, every century has great and bad things, worst even. However, I will choose this century. We are still in the young years of this century and I want to be hopeful that things will be better. We are more advanced now and more modern. We have come a long way. People may have changed. Our attitude and treatment towards others may have drastically changed but I still believe in the goodness of everyone. Am I dreaming? Maybe I am but I want to look on the bright side of things.

Cure for COVID. Not just for COVID but for all viruses that mankind are infected by and will be infected of.

I would like to say utopia but human nature is unpredictable.

Aside from travel, there is just one goal that I am aiming for and hopefully soon I can achieve that. Things have happened and are happening in life that delay our plans but we have to trust in God's plans.

Also, as we age, our priorities change and our goals and dreams change with it. So some of those things in our list had to be set aside.

I haven't come across or read anything lately so I guess that still stands.

Same. I try to see the good in people that's why I trust others easily. I try not to judge them right away and understand them better. Always remember the golden rule. However, treat everyone with kindness. At least you know within yourself that you didn't treat them bad.

Photo taken at Military Cut Off Road

Kids today have changed but it's also the parents who have changed. The way we treat our kids now reflects in their attitude. We blame the children but we don't want to acknowledge our faults.

Photo taken at Sta. Ana, Cagayan

That song was what I used to play a lot when I wrote that blog. Now I have no particular song/music in mind that I could think of. I want something more upbeat though. Or maybe one of the scores or the whole soundtrack from the movie Lord of the Rings. That's one of my all-time favorite movies.

That book talks about how to save and cut off your expenses. That is a practical approach to things. I would have to re-read that again.

I may have read one or two books after that but I can't remember.

About movie, the last I watched was Hwayi: A Monster Boy. My belief that we create monsters is depicted in that movie. According to one of the characters in that movie, we have to become a monster to defeat our own monsters.

If you are to answer one of these questions, which one will you choose?

You can answer these questions if you like.

Those questions were from this post of the original author.

This is the result without those questions.

Thank you all for your support! To those I have sponsored, I will be renewing my sponsorship for sure. Hopefully, I can renew everything soon.

I want to visit you all but I can only do as much.

I think I'd like to try out some of these questions too in my next post maybe. But to answer the first question, I'd eat rice and egg, noodles and fried egg then pepper soup with catfish. That's the best thing for me. Cos I don't know how long I'd be staying in the international space station.

The last question- I watched Zack Snyder's Justice league again, just two days back and wonder woman: blood lines. Recent book I read was science related. Something on Quantum mechanics.

Very interesting qs. And ans. I would like to answer your 10th qs. If I had to teach something to a class I will ask them to be patient and practical. I will ask them to rely on the quote slow and steady wins 🏆 the race. Bcos this generation is too fast.

I haven't read " The Diary of Pulubi" . It is surely a must-read book. Well, anything about financial literacy is worth the read.

I like all of your answers. Im up to food, nature and photography too but I don't have enough money to fund the things that I would love to do. At least for now.
