Oh hello there, 2015!

It's hard to look forward to a year which started with bawling your eyes out (another story for another time), but existential angst aside, here I am greeting the year (finally) with all the positivity and good vibes I can muster.

You see, I don't want to lose my marbles.

Salamat sa WayBackMachine, nahanap ko ang sagot ni Nena sa aking sinulat na Para kay Nena. Aking ibabahagi na rin sa blog na 'to bilang pag-alaala sa buhay ni Nena.

Para kay Nena

Nena, naaalala mo pa nung sinulat ko 'to nung 2002? Nalathala ito sa peyups.com (wala ne'to ngayon), at sa newsletter ng departamento namin. Ibabahagi ko ito ngayon sa blog ko na walang pagbabago galing mismo sa digital na kopya ng newsletter. [Hindi nga lang ako makakita ng kopya ng sinulat mo namang sagot dito :( Salamat sa WaybackMachine, nahanap ko ang sagot ni Nena. Maari niyo rin itong basahin dito (sa blog ko).] [Edited to add links]

Hello there, July August!

(I started to write this post in July, but no, I forgot about it, and *baaam* August na.)

Hello 2014: A Trip from Here to There

This was supposed to be a "good-bye 2013" post, but as soon as I got to my parents' place yesterday, it was eat-eat-eat-mass-fireworks-eat-eat-eat-sleep so yeah, I got nowhere with this post LOL.

From a gallery in MOMA
2013 took me "here", whatever physical (weight gain booo!), emotional (less drama and more GV), spiritual (faith and fate), financial (so-so debt yey?) and career (*crossing my fingers*) state that I am in right now.

I must say, getting "here" was a blast. 2013, you rocked my world.

Now, 2014 will take me "there", wherever "there" is.

Wherever 2014 will take me, I hope you all be with me as I take my trip, from here to there.

(And have Neil Gaiman's words of wisdom to guide us all)

Happy new year!
