I can hardly wait. I have never been more excited in anticipating a new year in my entire life. I have so many plans for 2006 and I am just so thrilled to get things going! After a terrible year, it’s just so ironic feeling so feisty towards the end of it. I thought that nothing thrills me anymore. But I take that back.

Something might have just given me a nudge or whatever. I’m throwing away all the drama out of the window. All of a sudden I am Miss Brightside. The good old me. Just the way I want it. I shall take pleasure in the smallest details (sabi nga sa Reality Bites diba). "You know... a quarter-pounder with cheese, those are good, the sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain, the moment where your laughter becomes a cackle... and I sit back and I smoke my Camel Straights and I ride my own melt."

Eto. Let me share some lines from one of my favorite books. They are kinda inspiring. Not exactly the words you would hear from a wise man, but to me, they are just as effective.

All I Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten
Robert Fulghum

Share everything. Play Fair. Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt someone.
Wash your hands before you eat. Flush.
Warm cookies and milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life – learn some, think some, draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.

2006 here I come!! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!

MY 2005

2005 hasn't ended yet. December has just begun. but i can say that this has been the worst year of my life. oh yeah. a pretty tough one. i have been struggling to keep up, but it seems that each day just gets harder. Fine. i may be over-acting again, as i obviously have a far better life than most Filipnos have. oo nah. i guess this is just the quarterlife crap. i know i'll be fine..

next year.

anyway.. here are some of the things that i realized this year. hmm.. well, not exactly "realizations" per se.. sabihin na natin na these are merely things that want to say.

here it goes:

1 i miss pinugu. but i'm glad the rest of the gang is still intact. my hs friends are my 'bestest' buddies.
2 from being an actuarial analyst, i became a call center agent. now i am a bum. tell me what's next..
3 i chose medical transcription studies over MBA studies. i'm still hoping that i made the right decision..
4 i am never gonna be a rockstar.
5 i am (very much) capable of dumping a friend. i may never be open to reconciliations if i found out how big of a moron she is.
6 there are some friendships that are worth saving. i can go through hell and back just to save them. (but again-- for morons, go to hell yourselves. hehe.)
7 i've known of around 12 break-ups this year. that's 1 each month! grabe noh. wala lang.
8 i have unintentionally broken somebody's heart. i'm sorry. Image hosted by Photobucket.com
9 i'm afraid i might be getting into something that i can't easily get out of.. basta..
10 i do get tired, people. i do.
11 kahit gaano ka lumayo sa alcohol, lalapit at lalapit ito sa iyo.
12 someone's getting married next year. wenongayon?!! bitter? haha. pakshet.

i know it's a little early to sum up my 2005. but i don't think there's anything more sensational (or bogus even) that's gonna happen in the remaining days. i think i have had enough. i know there's still Christmas and all, and i'm not Scrooge not to notice that. i do feel Christmas. That is exacty why i'm feeling this way.

throw me some of those life-changing cliches. might be of help.
not. hehe.

wake me up when 2005 ends.
