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

bastille my heaaaart (see what i did there)

One of my favorite stories/memories about Australia is going to see Bastille in Melbourne. It was one giant coincidence — I wasn’t even supposed to be in Melbourne that weekend, because if my bosses had their way I’d have flown to Sydney two weeks before and I’d have been in Melbourne the previous weekend, which was a long weekend. But visas take time and I only got it before the previous weekend, so my friend D and I decided to go to Melbourne on June 13th, Friday night, and fly back to Sydney on the 15th. Also, even if I’d been there a week early, flights on the long weekend were understandably very expensive by then.

We’d been looking at concerts and shows going on in Australia while we were there and knew Bastille had shows in Sydney and Melbourne that weekend, but they were already sold out when we first checked, right after I got the news that I was going to be sent to Sydney. But when we were booking flights to Melbourne (a couple of days before my flight to Sydney), we thought of checking concert tickets again on a whim. Surprise, new Bastille tickets were available! Suddenly the decision process got a little more complicated. We had two choices:

a) Stick with the original plan to fly back on the 15th, or
b) go to the concert and get the earliest flight back the next morning (there were no late flights we could take that night after the concert).

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)!

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.

Today I listened to four new (well, one was new to me) albums.

  1. Human Again, Ingrid Michaelson
  2. Promising Promises, Jon McLaughlin
  3. What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, Regina Spektor
  4. Sing You Home (EP), Xenia

It felt like… long summer drives across the country. A cup of hot chocolate. Lazy mornings on the couch. A warm hug. An afternoon playing the piano. Everything nice and homey and full of feelings. Except it was a stressful morning at work, but good music makes it better.

you know that you’ve been waiting for this~

…tbh i didn’t, but apparently i was and i just didn’t know until they were here.

here, have a haiku because concerts make me wax poetic, but only long enough to write 17 syllables.

SO GOOD, I DON’T EVEN
GOD THAT WAS SO FUCKING GOOD
DAMN I LOVE HANSON

(did i mention concerts also make me incoherent)
