I’ve asked WordPress to inspire me and this is what it made me do, use a line from a song and use it as my title. So there is my lss, dear reader.Β 

I know this is late but Happy New Year dear reader! I sincerely hope that we will use this year to get all the things we want and achieve all our dreams. Did you know that this year my birthday will fall on a Friday! Yeay for me! This means I’m celebrating on a Friday the 13th! I love it.Β 

Since it is a new year, I guess, it is time to list our new year resolutionsΒ (which we all know that 90% of the time we disregard them)… Well, if that’s the case then let’s not make one but make a “bucketΒ list” instead… It has a cool ring to it, right? Nothing so drastic or hardcore as a real bucket list would have. So maybe, we should rename our list… Any suggestions?Β For now let’s call it ourΒ “mellow bucket list of 2013: things we should have done before”.

Here it goes:

  1. Travel. Out of the country and domestically (priorities: Sagada, El Nido, Coron, and Batanes).
  2. Blog more.Β 
  3. Write a story. Not just a flash fiction. Write even a short story. Is this the year to join NANOWRIMO, hmmmm?
  4. Go to the movies more and review them! This would be fun.
  5. More food trips with friends! Try new avenues and kinds of dishes.Β 
  6. BE MORE DISCIPLINED in my studies. I really appreciate that I am taking my graduate degree…
  7. Sponsor a child from World Vision.Β 
  8. Visit an orphanage. Even have a party for them!
  9. Learn how to drive.
  10. LEARN HOW TO COOK.Β seriously…
  11. Get a job! I really need money to survive. Haha!
  12. Enjoy life more and add more to this list as this year goes by!Β 

So there it is my gentle readers! Enjoy 2013 to the fullest, remember thatΒ life is full of surprises so better get ready

Top Ten Things

Since the world didn’t end here in this part of this world I have the time to post things like those Top Ten thingy.

They are not actually ten dear readers. I just want to list some random things. Here it goes:

1. I was able to go to Disneyland!
2. I lived in two different cities.
3. Enrolled in two different school in the same semester.
4. One of those is my language class, I’m learning Spanish again. Muy bien!
5. Got a new Samsung Galaxy Note. Yeay for generous parents!
6. Got my left ear pierced, 2 piercings, upper side and middle. I would want to add some more or get a tattoo.
7. Dropped a subject/course/class for the first time in my academic life.
8. Resigned from work.
9. Pursued my graduate degree! Oh God, let me finish it.
10. Didn’t get a haircut!!! Wow.
11. Buy and read books that I wanted. I also got some great books as gifts for my birthday.
12. Experienced a very nasty “habagat” here in the country. Because of this we donated goods and clothing for those badly affected.
13. Graduated from the various classes in my church. I am so thankful for this because it made me a better person. I learned a lot especially about love.
14. Celebrated lots of good birthday parties plus mine!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Happy 2012 Fellow Living Bodies

Happy New Year!

It’s been an insane 2011. My life had been, indeed, insane. If given the chance to repeat 2011… I wouldn’t. I can’t. I may claim that 2011 may be the best year of my life BUT so many worst things had happened. I love 2011 so much but I must admit that it was a very challenging year for the likes of me.

Dear Reader… Are we supposed to feel scared for 2012? No. We’re suppose to feel excited! I can feel that this year has so may surprises for us, so better get ready!

I want so many things for 2012. I want them to all happen. With a lot of help, that will be given, by the Lord I know I can do it. Hello 2012, it’s nice meeting you…
