Being a Risk-Taker

I admit. I risk. But that doesn't mean I do it always. I risk if good reasons are dominant than bad reasons or if my instinct says "do it".

I have learned my lesson about taking risks. I have regretted some things in the past because I thought it was too risky but I have charged it to my experience. Some people may think I'm not listening to them about doing something risky. I am listening and I fully understand. It's just that I have learned that if I decide to do something, I do it for myself and not for others. I do it because I want to. I do it because I don't want to regret again. My family and friends may have a different view or thinking about the situation than me but in the end, it's my decision. If I decide to do something risky, I prepare myself with the risk and do some mitigation plans. This helps me lessen the feeling of the risk. Also, thinking positive always and putting the law of attraction on my mind helped me a lot.

Probably I started to develop this type of attitude when I was in college. I graduated in a college where the environment is tough. Almost everything, from exams, to projects, to thesis, we do it on our own. Yes, there were group projects but individual projects was the usual trend. I have learned to do things on my own. I have learned that you can't always rely to the people around you, that you have to be able to stand on your own. I have learned to talk and be honest with myself. I have learned to accept failures and changes. I have learned to decide on my own and never regret.

I am not really sure if this is a good or bad attitude but I know for sure that I alone will decide for myself and that includes taking risks.

Bon Odori Japanese Summer Festival Cebu 2014

This is my first ever Japanese summer festival experience. It was held last August 8-9, 2014 in Mandaue City but I only attended on the 9th because the 8th was a Friday and a workday. It felt like I was in Japan for a night! The atmosphere was very much like the summer festivals we see in anime series. I never imagined that we will have a similar festival in our place. Glad I was able to join the event. It was really fun! Thanks to my college friends and otaku friends who spent the night with me. I only have my summer-like walolita costume to wear so I will definitely get a yukata for next year! ^_^

Here are some photos during the event:

Glad my walolita still fits xD
with my friends from college!
with my Otaku friends!
