I know it’s a bit late to greet but let me say it anyway. Merry Christmas and happy new year!!! This Christmas was the most unforgettable one for me and my family. We ended the year 2011 with mixed emotions. I don’t know how to explain everything now so I’ll just share about it in my future posts. Too many stories to tell that I don’t know where to start. The last thing I want to do is to post something incoherent and confusing for my first blog post for this new year. Will share everything soon. That’s a promise. -roxipie
Ate Jenny’s baby Lenovo here is just too cool that I didn’t want to miss this chance to enjoy it while she’s out for work. *wink* And what better way of enjoying it than by making a blog entry! 🙂 It’s my third and (sadly) final day here in Manille. It’s been really great! I met with friends whom I haven’t seen in almost two years. I’ve missed them so much! Moments with them have been crrazzy! Haha! Zero dull moments. It’s been a while since I last unleashed my crazy self with a bunch of equally crazy people! They’re just so crazily fun to be with! Despite how different each of our lives turned out, it’s nice to know that we still haven’t forgotten of the old times. That we can easily talk and laugh about funny moments back in college, and share about stuff that we’ve encountered since then, good or bad, whether it’s about a break up with a boyfriend or a career change. I really had a great time! Too bad, it’s about to end and I don’t know when we’ll be able to spend time like this with each other again. It’s kinda sad but I know that there will surely be a next time. 🙂
Last night, while I was sleeping soundly and enjoying the sound of the rain and the rush of the wind, I had no idea.. that somewhere, people were dying. This is so devastating. Please help us, God. Please give us strength to overcome this obstacle. Bless those who are affected by the storm. 😥

I wanted a big christmas tree this year but I couldn’t afford it. So better luck next year. We took out our 4-year old Christmas tree and decorated it with new sparkly ornaments and new christmas lights. Our tree may only be 1 meter tall but it’s the best one we’ve had so far.

My sister shared to me this website that allows us to design our own anime/avatar. Being a big anime fan that I am, I enjoyed creating avatars for myself and my siblings. Aren’t they cute? Each one resembles ourselves. One of these days, I’m gonna make avatars for my favorite TVD characters. (Can’t wait!) Try it yourself!

I’ve taken a long break from my tour guiding career and I even thought of stopping for good. Four months hiatus really ruined my momentum. I thought of changing careers and looking for another job. But the big problem is, I really don’t know where to go from here. I can choose to leave and try my luck in the big city. It was my plan in the first place before I graduated.. before everything became out of place and life’s drama started rolling. *sigh* But with the current condition, I can’t be selfish and decide only for myself. The best choice is to stay and make do with what I have now. Flying will have to wait. Specially when I can’t even spread my wings yet.
And now, enough with the serious talk. November has come and Christmas is fast approaching. Woot! Before this year ends, there are several things I’m looking forward to. There’s this wedding that I’ll be attending next month. It’s the first wedding I’ll be attending in like, my entire life, so I’m really super excited for it. Never mind the fact that I still haven’t saved money for my plane ticket. And not to mention, the dress and present that I’ll have to prepare. Plus, Christmas is just around the corner, which means more presents to buy! So I really have to get my butt back to work. Tour guiding galore! So I pray for bajillion tourists to come so I can get hired. But before that, I need to study and review to refresh my memory and get back on track.
Then there’s my TVD craze. I feel bad for not being able to post updated review or quotes from episodes four and onwards. I haven’t missed any of The Vampire Diaries episodes but I haven’t been religious in blogging about it. I blame it all to my lazy self. From now on, I’ll do my best to post and share as much as I can. There’s so much more I want to share but they will have to wait. I can’t be blogging and watching TV shows all the time, can I? Especially not now that I am making baby steps towards fulfilling my goals. Nevertheless, I would like to declare that in these past weeks, I have completely fallen for Klaus! This is an important realization for me. Haha!
