aka in which you see how much I’ve fallen in love with Australia. sigh.

Where did you begin 2014?
At home, watching the neighbors’ fireworks — still. The parents who used to live in the house in front of ours kissed at midnight, aww.

What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?

  • Went on a trip with my sister and not my parents. twice.
  • Went on a trip that I paid for, with my parents.
  • WENT TO AUSTRALIAAAAAAAA
    • Experienced winter! Not a snowy winter, but temperatures were in the single digits. Finally got to wear a coat and gloves and a million layers, haha.
    • Went to a concert outside the Philippines (actually went to two)
    • SAW BASTILLE LIVE WHICH IS ITS OWN ITEM BECAUSE IT WAS THE GREATEST
    • SAW SNOW. AHHHH. Though it doesn’t snow in Sydney, there’s this mountain place (called the Snowy Moutains. How creative, Australia.) where it does and people go to ski and stuff. It wasn’t snowing the day we were there but it had snowed for most of the week before so it was all white and fluffy (and wet and cold. haha)
    • BUILT A SNOWMAN. A tiny, pathetic one.
    • Lived on my own AND abroad. I say lived because hey, it was a long time and I had an apartment (that I didn’t pay for lolol) and bought groceries and cooked. And took out the garbage. Let me pretend, okay lol.
    • Spent my birthday not at home — and in another country, in fact. Not with my family.

Where did you begin 2013?
At home, watching the neighbors’ fireworks.

What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?
Went abroad with just my friends and no family. Went on an actual trip with Fatimang and Clar (six years after high school and the farthest we’d gone before this was Nico’s house in Antipolo). Got surgery (okay, minor only to remove a wisdom tooth, but still!). Got stitches. Got a credit card (finally)!

hello, i am an occasional visitor in my own blog.

i’m a (silent!) crier when i’m sad, and sometimes i’m a crier when i’m happy. it’s a little terrifying, always feeling so much.

It’s amazing how someone else could put into words exactly how I feel, in a way that I never could myself.

In other news (aka things that have happened since my last post ages ago):

  • Malaysia/Singapore was super fun and super exhausting and LOL WHERE DID ALL MY MONEY GO.
  • And then… THE SCRIPT AHHHHH THEY STILL GIVE THE BEST CONCERTS. Was much closer this time, and even got to touch Danny when he went down to the audience! My sister hugged him, what even.
  • Company summer outing was fun, one of the drunkest times I’ve ever been in my life, but still got to manage it enough that I was still just within the happy-drunk zone, albeit barely and tbh I woke up wanting to throw up but I just countered it with lots of oily hangover food.
  • Work is still kicking my ass, but I can see a light at the end of this tunnel! AKA moving projects soon, and hopefully not going to be 150% allocated anymore.
  • Twisted my OTHER knee this weekend because I apparently do not know how to use my legs, so I called in sick today. Slept most of it away, although was logged in to my work PC in the morning. As Jessica Zafra once said on her blog, “For sanity and general health maintenance I can’t think of anything better than spending a weekday vegetating at home.” EXACTLY.My parents were being all, “that’s because you’re so fat! and you’re just in the house, why do these things happen to you, be more careful!” when I twisted the ankle. WOW THANK YOU GUYS, I’M HERE WRITING IN PAIN AND YOU THINK TO INSULT ME INSTEAD OF ASKING IF I’M OK. Goddamn, sometimes they make me so angry. I know, I need to live healthier, lose weight etc etc and this second knee-twisting has scared me so yes I am going to start eating healthier but Christ, sometimes I just need to feel like I’m still their little girl, k? My sister was the best out of them, asking if I needed ice, etc etc and no wonder I yelled for her and not either of the ‘rents. Wow this post has taken a very depressing turn. Yep, my parental issues are still hanging in there.
  • Also, I fucking miss running. Never thought I’d say this, but I do. I want to get up on weekend mornings at 6 and run around the village, damn it. I was supposed to have time when I went on leave but then my stupid knees happened. Body, please cooperate. :(
  • Separation anxiety check: yep, still happening.

light up, light up, as if you have a choice

I’ve been on leave for the last three days, technically been on break for five days (since Saturday). It’s… restful. I get to sleep a lot. Finished a book today. Watched a couple of movies. Had my hair done. I should probably be studying for an exam I have to take, but I just really need to not work for a while. Though the kind of busy I’ve been in the last few months was the good kind of busy, I need a break. You know you really do when your own boss yells “Get a life!” at you… predictably while you are doing your nth overtime in the last few months.

Could’ve been better though, if I didn’t twist my knee last Sunday, and then go to the mall (to buy my shiny new camera!!) despite that, which aggravated it even further. Sunday night until Monday I spent on the couch, elevating and resting the knee like I should’ve. Blame my mother, she wouldn’t believe I was in actual pain until I probably made her arm numb with my death grip as I really could not walk without assistance. The knee feels loads better now, although still a little stiff. Hopefully it won’t be a problem when I go to Malaysia/Singapore this weekend until next week.

=====

I’m watching old concert videos right now, particularly Snow Patrol’s, and fuck, that was a good concert. I feel like crying just watching them play ugh they are SO GOOD. Also I might possibly be tearing up from nostalgia because this was one of K and my last concerts together, and one of the best.

The Script is coming up in 11 days and I won’t have her there and it’s sad because she’d finally seen the light and became a fan and now she won’t get to see them.

…right, so the separation anxiety is still happening, after all these weeks.

Where did you begin 2012?
In Nueva Ecija. I think. I don’t actually remember much except for my mad scramble to finish 100 movies within the year.

What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before?
Drove 120kph. Interviewed someone for a job. Went to Boracay (and partied like it’s the end of the world?). Did something only Kim and a couple of people know.
