Just a day late! Yay to me! Hahaha. Ok. Serious mode now.
2012 has been a blast to me. Last year (2011), I posted as a status on Facebook that 2012 needs to do it’s best to be better than 2011 and I guess it really did because looking back, I got almost what I want this year. I went to so many places, I got a good job with wonderful people, I got to explore myself more when I went out of my comfort zone and so much more and more and more. It is indeed a one helluva year! So let’s go back to what happened to me last 2012 ala-instagram, shall we?
Boracay (January). Pagpasok ng taon, lakwatsa agad-agad! Hahah! So much love in this place! I wanna go back to Boracay this year with my friends. 3-4 days aren’t enough, I swear! (posts here!)
Pampanga (February). My first time to witness the hotair balloon fiesta! Fun-filled day with my officemates although being here the whole day was kinda boring. Blog post here!
Batangas (March). Got to spend more time with my cousins to bond when we decided to have a mini-getaway after our tito died. It isn’t everyday that we get to do this so going to a place away from Manila for a day is enough for us to enjoy together. More trips this year please!! (blog here)
Zambales (May). The one-for-the-books trip with my forever barkada. Yes, we have a yearly summer getaway but this time, we decided to go somewhere far from the south. I am so glad we pushed through this one because we all went home with a smile on our faces. I am so excited for our getaway this year!! (blog here and here)
Singapore (July). I think this trip was the highlight of my 2012 as this was my first trip out of the country. My boyfriend and I went to Singapore to celebrate my 23rd birthday and also for our pre-5th anniversary celebration. I cannot believe we’re on our 5th year together. It still feels like yesterday was our first day as a couple. 2012 has been good to us since no major fights happened. Haha! We have learned to compromise, to understand one another in different situations, to give and take more and to adjust to one another’s needs and wants. I hope 2013 will be as good or maybe better! I cannot wait! :) (Singapore trip posts here, here, here and here)
Friends. I am thankful for these people whom I spent my highschool and college years with. Up until now, although not often, we still make time to see each other to just catch up and have fun. I don’t know what i’ll be without them. Sabi nila, kung sino yung lagi mong nakakasama, yun yung mga nagiging katulad mo. True? Maybe. So I am glad I spent 8 years with good, kind-hearted, God-fearing, fun, care-free people because I know something somewhere in me were from them.
Parents. My parent’s 25th anniversary was celebrated this year. The original plan was for them to get married again but then time didn’t permit us to do so. Someday I hope. I am thankful for them because they have raised such an awesome girl named Karla. Hahahaha I kid!! But I am thankful for being an inspiration to me. Not just as a parent but also as a couple. I love them to bits.
Black Swan. My first time to cosplay! Hahaha. See my post here. :D
Baguio (November). Year 2012 was a year of spontaneity. My officemates and I had an impromptu trip to Baguio for the long weekend. You think it was all dull and boring but sorry to disappoint you, it was epic! I am thankful for these new people in my life. I am lucky to be a part of a company where you treat each other as family. I wouldn’t enjoy going to work up to 11 in the evening and on Saturdays if it weren’t for them.
Reunite. This year, I made the biggest step to re-kindle a friendship with the boyfriends’ friends. I sometimes have the attitude of the ‘if you don’t like me, I don’t like you too’ so doing this was hard. But I am glad I did because everything turned out great. I wish to be closer to them this year because being with them is just so fun and fun and fun.
ANO PA BA? Haha. There are still things I weren’t able to include here but that doesn’t mean that they’re not as great. Basta. 2012 was such a great great year for me and for everyone around me.
This 2013, I’ll make it a point to be more positive in everything. I won’t give up that easily, I won’t lose hope that fast. I’ll fight and fight for what I know is right and for the better. I’ll cry less and be strong more. Expect less and love more. Eat less and work out more. :P But above all, more love to give to everyone who’s been there for me from the start including You, my dear Lord.
