Thursday will always be my favorite day of the week. Back in third year college, thursday would be the only time Alex and I would eat lunch together. My college roomie also said that I only wear perfume on Thursdays. Hee. Now that I’m already working, Thursday is officially the day we have a date since that’s the day he goes back to Manila. So I don’t know. I love Thursdays, and I have nothing else to say.
If there’s one thing I learned from Alex, it’s that photographs aren’t the only way you can immortalize a moment. Maybe I’m just giving a justification for Alex’s constant refusal to be photographed. Heh. But I really think the best way to actually to make a moment last forever is to fully be there. I’m not exactly sure what I mean (heh) but when I’m with him, taking photos aren’t as essential as being with him. We’re not one of those couples who have tons of silly photos together. We do have silly photos but it’s not… tons. It doesn’t really matter because we find other ways to have fun besides making silly faces at the camera. Also,
we I don’t need a camera to make silly faces. [Read more…]
This weekend proved to be a challenge. I didn’t bring home Mac-Mac, my laptop, and I suddenly find myself more bored than usual. I haven’t realized how fully dependent I am on my laptop, especially when I am at home, until now. Last night, I went to bed earlier than my weekend bedtime. I am also constantly itching to go online. Good thing my sister went to Enchanted Kingdom today so I have her laptop all to myself.
It still feels different, though. I can’t do everything comfortably using my sister’s laptop since her touchpad’s much harder to control. My sister doesn’t have Photoshop installed so I can’t tweak my photos. At least I can download my movies since she has a bigger free memory here. Anyway, this weekend isn’t so bad either because I managed to get quite a few things done. I finished a book (Bob Ong’s Ang mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan) and watched a movie from my father’s stash of pirated DVDs. I swear it usually takes me quite some time to finish either because the internet is such a great distraction.
On other news, I broke a mirror at Expressions yesterday. I had to pay for it, of course, which pisses me off. My sister gladly told anyone who would listen that I’ve been breaking stuff at stores for almost two decades. I haven’t grown up, have I?
Smiling flirtatiously isn’t exactly one of my plans for this year, but that’s the best I can do to look confident. I am not really one of those people who make resolutions every year. I feel like changing doesn’t have to start precisely on New Year’s Day. It can happen any day, any minute. But I do like making plans and goals to be achieved for that year. I usually post it online so I can commit to it more. (It’s not always effective, though.) My lists were often long, but for 2011, I will try to keep it at a minimum.
I have so many plans that I realize that to do it all, I need to be a superwoman. A superwoman only capable of saving herself, that is. I wish I can do everything, and I wish I do have super powers. But sadly I am no cast of Misfits so I simply have to narrow down my goals to a few. Some of these have been on my list for years now. Maybe this year, I can finally cross it out. [Read more…]
It would be hard to compress in one post everything that happened in 2010. Too many things have happened and it would be beyond me to enumerate everything. I have so many ups and lows this year. Yet, I still feel like no matter how many bad things take place, I can still say that this is a good year. Then again, I am also quite relieved that I’ve reached 2010 with high spirits.
With just a few hours left, I’m going to say goodbye not just to a year but also to a decade. I wouldn’t even attempt to point out the high points of the past ten years. Besides the fact that I am lazy, I also do not have the luxury of time. But this surely is one memorable year.
When I asked my boyfriend if there’s anything he doesn’t like about me, he was said that there’s really nothing he doesn’t like. I prodded even more for answers. Then he said that sometimes he’s “amused” at how gullible I am about life, how clueless and childish I am about the real world. I understand what he’s saying. I know that I can be pretty daft about the serious stuff. I am pretty immature. I was glad, though, when he said that I am changing and I am learning. He said more mushy things but the point is, I think I grew up a lot this year. After everything that has happened, it is quite impossible not to change. [Read more…]
