A note to myself to hold myself accountable in the future -- hey, future me! Do this!

My birthmother was 32 when she had me. Her birthday's in September and I'm thinking about her now that September's almost here. Everything I know about myself and my genealogical background is on a sheet of paper I got from my adoption agency. I have that information about her from that paper. So, I want to plan a trip to go to the Philippines when I'm 32 in 2017. I want to do a photographic series about my life. I want to visit the agency that brought me to my parents, the nuns and their institution who contributed to my birthmother's health, and maybe even make it back to where my birthmother's from. I think that'd be interesting and I hope that by 2017, I'll be better at taking photos. I think I'm giving myself enough time. I'll be curious going there at that point in my life and being the same age as she was when she had me. That's the plan, future self!
