May 6, 2012 – Once again, that time of year is upon me. the time wherein the universe adds a +1 to my life. last year, and i stated this in my old blog, that wishes do come true. during my last birthday, my dad undergone an operation. i remember asking only for his safety as a birthday gift! thankfully, it was given but a lot more were added as bonuses. indeed, the universe is good.
my year has been like a rollercoaster ride, an exciting yet sometimes nauseating experience that i would like to repeat over and over again. and since i would want to treat this day as a day to look back. i would want to go over some of the highlights of my year. (this is practically my new year anyway)
1. got a job and matured (a lot)
although i have resigned from Achievers’ Circle, i have learned a lot from that Company family that i know i can still hold on to even up to now. my Boss, Ed, made sure that i not only function as a member of the team but should improve as i grow with them. come on, manager at the age of 24! i gotta say that it was an honor and an achievement to be given that awesome responsibility. my colleagues have also taught me alot (being a newbie in the corporate arena), and for that i am entirely grateful. Thank you guys!
(welcoming guests to our blogger event! thank you axl for the shot!)
(with Patricia, Marika during our first ever event at Achievers’ Circle Inc)
2. be part of awesome communities
my work paved the road for me to get in touch with several communities that would not only hone my skills and talents
Yeah, i have Talents!. but would also give me the chance to meet interesting people, learn their stories and be immersed in a world that is specific to what the community offers!
3. meet awesome people ( and strenghten bonds with existing friends!)
like i said in item 2. i met a lot of awesome people. and they have been significantly part of my year. i was scared that the new friends would over shadow the existing ones.(but i was wrong).
i am thankful that i met this individuals! my life would not be the same without them. there are way tooo many people , so ill just be highlighting those that have been there for me most of the time! hahaha
Franz Lopez, Justin Joyas and Jaypee David
although we dont commune as often as we did months ago, i still am thankful that i met you guys
emo shit!. we have been in each others cases for as long as i can remember. impromptu cinema screening (remember the time when we kidnapped jaypee so that he could watch the “Three Musketeers” with us? fun times!), or our sudden travel escapades ( impromptu baguio trip, and the shoot even though the rain wont allow it. the matching rain coats, my stupid accidents [falling down the steps in the park!], you guys had made my year exciting and fun! ill see you guys soon!

i cant even decide on how to start thanking you for being part of my year. imagine meeting you for an event in subic then being best buddies today! you are one of the few girl friends that i have, and i know i will have forever! (ha!

(dapat part k n ng admin e. haha i rerecommend ko yan!). but aside from being the glue! you are a woman of many titles (i wont enumerate anymore! haha

4. awesome family!
you are awesome! i will love you forever. if possible even beyond forever( this is so confusing, how can there be a beyond to something infinite? haha). and thank you for the lunch-meryenda na you concocted today! (and your gifts, which i will be claiming in a few minutes)
I love you three very much!
awesome AVENGERS My year has been? i learned what success and failure is. relearned and reinforced the meaning of love, friendship, trust, and hope. and i just wish this continues for many years to come!
