Thirty-six is a semiperfect number, meaning it is the sum of some subsets of its natural divisors.
Like thirty-six, life isn't perfect either. But there's still much to be thankful for.
I am grateful that I have a roof over my head and am able to eat at least three square meals a day (if I so choose).
I am grateful that I have wonderful parents and siblings who are always ready to support me no matter what shenanigans I get into.
I am grateful for friends who are interesting and who share my interests and are more than willing to put up with my particular insanities.
I am grateful for having a well-paying job that affords me luxuries and opportunities most people are not able to avail of.
I am grateful for the prospect of a possible brighter tomorrow.
For my birthday wishes:
I wish for clarity of vision.
I wish for serenity of heart.
I wish for less hatred in the world.
I wish for more honesty in the world.
I wish for less traffic in Metro Manila.
I wish for better internet in the Philippines.
I wish for good health.
I wish for more free time.
I wish for more wishes.
Let the future come and bring what it will.
