Accomplishment

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

What do you feel is your greatest accomplishment since high school?

That’s one of the questions in the information sheet that the organizers of our high school reunion asked us to fill out.  I left it blank because there is nothing worth bragging about, jokingly or otherwise, nothing that others would deem as an accomplishment. Would people understand that being able to take pleasure in an unstructured and unfettered life free from the tethers of success is what I consider my greatest accomplishment? It doesn't sound like an accomplishment at all, does it? It sounds more like an empty justification for a solitary, barren life.

for me, it's travel and having the opportunity to live as i want. high school left a bitter taste in my mouth, so i have no interest in attending any future reunions. (although there's been talks about dragging me into planning one...geeez.) siguro i'll just not come home na lang para valid ang excuse.)

your justification isn't empty at all. actually, it says a LOT.

Living in a contented life free of stress and a source of happiness to significant other ;)

knowing that asterisks and ichthys are orifice symbols is one of major accomplishments. :)

I think living a happy contented life is the biggest achievement one can accomplish. So I wouldn't worry too much about what others might think.

That's an interesting and challenging question. :)

living the life you choose (like what you are doing) and not what others choose for you is what you can really call an accomplishment.
