HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR CURRENT LIFESTYLE DEFINES YOU?
I live a modest life. It would reinforce my conviction of being a recluse indeed. Very rarely am I out where there is a raucous. Instead, I prefer being in the solitude of home; be it with reading material, games, or shows.
My life is essentially segmented between work, which takes up the lion’s share, my alone time and time spent in the company of people I cherish, in that order. This is not to say I do not like being out and about, just that I would rather be in a small group with the people who matter.
THE A-LISTERS IS ABOUT EXPERIENCES. DESCRIBE YOUR ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE.
Off the top of my head, no single moment really stands out drastically as an ultimate experience. Thus, I’ll say the close knit group of friends I have made navigating through life’s journey thus far would rank as the best experience, collectively. With them I have countless memorable experiences imprinted on my; indelible marks that I would not trade for anything else. I know if push comes to shove I can always count on them, and vice versa and at the end of the day, who could ask for more?
WHAT IS YOUR MISSION IN LIFE?
As cliche as it is, my mission is be happy, without having anything to prove to anyone or worrying about pleasing other people. Ultimately, I would like to have my affairs sorted to the point where I have the most precious commodity to spend as I please: time. This means having made the right decisions along the way with investing resources into fruitful ventures that allow me to step away from a conventional 9-to- 5. Being able to work for myself to reap whatever I sow has to be the end goal for anybody out there. I want to discover something I truly feel passionate about and work on that. What that is I have yet to discover. Life is a journey after all.
