She’s Miki, a monicker for my family’s energy bunny. She’s Princess Mikaela, but she’s really too rowdy and boisterous to actually be called a princess. But she makes us happy, she makes us laugh. She’s a delight to be with especially when she argues that she’d rather be called Robin, Robin Padilla. She has a puppy named Blackjack, which she endearingly calls Tuta. She has an infectious laughter, and she eats like a 10-year-old. She’s everyone’s favorite.
This year, I want to take photographs. Doing 365 is out of the question so here’s a shot for 52 weeks of Black and White.
I started 2013 by being wacky and I wish that by the end of the year, I still have this silliness in me. People are supposed to change consistently, right, but I don’t want this part of me to change. I do hope that whatever shit I get myself into this year, I’d still manage to smile and laugh at the end of the day. I am pretty sure that this year’ll be one roller coaster ride, but I have always loved roller coasters so I’m pretty excited! (I know, I don’t make sense sometimes.)
I have thought of coming up with another comprehensive list of plans and goals for this year, but I did that for 2012 and look what little it helped. Then I thought of not doing another one, because heck, I’d probably end up not doing a single thing from the list! But then here I am, trying to come up with another because really, I cannot sit still without knowing that I have some things to accomplish for this year. I always rely on lists, making one the first thing I do for everything. It’s not like I religiously follow them, but there’s just something so fulfilling about crossing out an item.
You know, there’s at least something that I vowed last year that tried to do until the very end, and that’s to go out of my comfort zone! And to live recklessly! I didn’t take giant steps but I took human steps, okay. I also don’t know what that means, but at least it’s not just baby steps. Heh. But there are some things that I did last year that 2011 Jane wouldn’t have done. That’s why at the end of 2012, I was happy. And I still am, of course.
As usual, I do not have a new year’s resolution because I know I’ll never be able to faithfully do it anyway. But there are some things I want to try and some things I know I should do.
I know that fireworks and firecrackers are bad and all, but New Year’s Eve won’t be complete without them. Call us idiots for still sending lights to the sky every year, but I doubt we’d be stopping. Let’s just hope we’ll always be safe despite being hard-headed!
New Year’s Eve was a blast, as usual, but I noticed that we seem to be getting fewer and fewer. But still, being with my family at the end of the year is always something to be thankful for. 2012 was amazing, but I’m pretty sure that 2013 have better things in store for me, my family and friends. I seriously cannot wait.
