034. Year End Reflection

I am not sure if 2009 has been a good year for me not. 2009 is a mix of ironies for me.


I've got promoted but I've been spending 14 hours everyday at work.

I've travelled a lot but I've not taken a vacation to enjoy these places.


I was able to spend time with them but I miss them more during the holidays.


I've met a lot of new people but I lost a lot as well. 5 friends died this year.

Marc the bestfriend left the country to work in Qatar. Although we talk a lot, it isn't the same.


I've attended concerts and fanmeets across Asia.

I've lost track of some of the fandoms I'm in.


Zero. Nada. Zilch. No expectations. By choice.

Past loves have returned but I can only offer friendship and companionship.


Let's not go there.

Looking at the bullet points, I guess it's a bad year for me huh. Don't get me wrong. I'm thankful for all the good things that happened but the bad outweighed the good.

Ending the year with a sour note eh. :D

*shakes head to clear mind*

I'll focus on the bad and labeled them as learnings. I'll try to come up with next steps so 2010 will be a good year for me.

New Year. New Beginning. :D

033. How I spent my Christmas

Half of it I spent asleep.
Half of it I spent in the hospital because Anne can't wake me up and my idiot (and I say that with love) bestfriend thought I am dead until she checked for my pulse and heartbeat. *rolls eyes then LOL*

Piece of advice:
Don't take sleeping pills after drinking a bottle of wine. Better yet, don't drown your sorrow with alcohol.

Action Step:
I will bring my family back for Christmas next year, even if I have to go there and drag them myself. Or to save time and money, I'll just spend my Christmas there. *LOL*

Belated Merry Christmas everyone! :D

032. Maybe This Time

Had our HS reunion last night. I was excited and nervous at the same time. Excited coz I haven't seen my classmates in 10+ years. Nervous coz I'll be seeing Marc again after all these years. We didn't actually lost communication since we text/email each other occasionally.

We hugged each other for a long time that some of our classmates were making coughing noises in the background. Hahaha. That hug brought a lot of memories...

Marc was my last boyfriend in high school. We've been classmates since first year and have always been close. We were both in other relationships until 3rd year. We became a couple when we were seniors. The main reason we "delayed" the relationship was because of my friend Ivy. Ivy has a huge thing for Marc since first year. I remember comforting her whenever Marc has a new girlfriend. And being the evil friend that I am, I always make it my goal to break up those relationships Marc had with those girls.

Marc and I parted ways because of Ivy as well. She felt betrayed so she didn't talk to me our senior year. Being the stupid friend that I am, I ended the relationship. I gained Ivy's friendship again but lost Marc. During those times, I value friendship above all else. The one thing I regretted until now is that I have lost Marc not because of our incompatibilities but because I thought friendship was more important than my own happiness.

*swoosh to the present*
I was glad that there were no awkwardness for the both of us. We picked up where we left off which I am very thankful for. We were asked to sing Maybe This Time. Hahahaha. *dies* After the party, we went to Starbucks Metrowalk with 2 of our friends. Then he invited me to attend Simbang Gabi with him in Pasig Church. Then we had breakfast with his family. I'm glad that they recognized me and it was his mom who said. "just like old times huh."

We're both not in a relationship right now but it is too early for something to happen. I am happy not because I see him as a potential boyfriend but because we have a renewed our friendship. Something that is so special and should always be cherished.  :D

031. Gift giving

I hate it when people give me gifts just because I gave them one. I hate it even more when they tell me straight to my face that they are obliged to get me a gift coz I gave them one.

What's up with that?! Seriously?! Well, you're off my list next year.

Reactions like those ruined the spirit of Christmas.

030. Meteor Garden/Liu Xing Yu

As much as I want this to be a post about my favorite boyband, F4, it isn't. I'll show you the extent of my fangirlism some other time. *LOL*

I witnessed something beautiful tonight. Twice, in fact. I was informed by a friend that there will be meteor showers on the nights of Dec 14 and 15.  Around 1130 ish, went up the rooftop to check the skies. I wasn't disappointed. I saw 3 meteors lighting up the sky. Really pretty and unexpected.

I don't have a DLSR and my camera is crappy so I wasn't able to take a picture. Besides, I'm busy making wishes while jumping up and down. (Ayy, ginawang New Year celebration! *LOL*)

Went down, tweeted and chatted for a while so I could wait for the next one which was scheduled around 2 am. The 2 am shower is more beautiful than the first one. It really lighted up the sky. Even though mesmerized, I didn't forget to play the song:

Meteor Rain by F4 *LOL*

I was really lucky to witness the meteor shower. Somehow, seeing something so beautiful lifted up my spirits. :D The bad thing is I can't sleep. *LOL*
