- the passing of both Ernest Borgnine, the long-time actor, and Stephen McCovey, the author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People";
- the continuing run-up to next year's elections, although I'll probably still have time to write about it anyway;
- the continuing problem of China's repeated intrusions into our territory, and our inability to act on it;
- the start of the UAAP men's basketball season;
- on the local side, the stupidity of asphalting over manholes along the roads across Metro Manila;
- the upcoming State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Aquino; and
- the current moves of Congress to dance the Cha-Cha.
I should try to set a scheduled time for writing each day, so that I can continue to practice my writing craft.
