2016’s Bes

HI GUYS OMG DID U HEAR THAT YES THAT’S 2016 ENDING.

With a bang if I may add. Sobrang kupal ng taon na ‘to na hanggang sa huling sandali madami siyang paandar. Pwedeng awat na, mumsh?

BUT! In fairness naman and to 2016’s defense, on a micro-level (naks micro???) it isn’t as bad as it looks. In one of my conversations with Sosep, we agreed that this year for us is pretty okay naman all things considering. It doesn’t hurt to be grateful and celebrate the good things that happened this que horror year.

So that’s what I’m going to do! Presenting my 2016’s bes(t):

1. Hello 25, it me.

aka THE ULTIMATE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. I spent my birthday with my friends, family, and the love of my life: Jollibee.

2. Live from New York!

I’ve always wanted to fly to NYC and it felt like after THREE FAILED ATTEMPTS and countless hours of waiting at the airport, when the boarding pass was handed to me to FINALLY fly to JFK parang maiiyak yata ako bezzy kasi pakshet +19 hours ‘to of panis laway. Char.

WELL IF IT ISN’T WORTH IT.

I also got to spend time with my aunts and cousins which is pretty friggin awesome!

It’s weird that I only got to spend three days with NYC but there is still so much to see and experience! I miss it… wow clingy????? Sana makabalik ako next year! Sana marami rin akong anda!

3. Music!

My resolution for 2016 is to go out more. And go out, I did. Ika nga ng nanay ko, “SAAN NA NAMAN ANG LAMYERDA MO??”

Best pa rin ‘yung eLBindiefest kasi hindi ko kinailangang lumuwas! PLUS, my favorites/friends got to experience the LB crowd for the first time!

4. Friends!

Going out more comes with meeting new people and spending more time with the old!

5. Lucas and Tita B diaries was born!

I think we can all agree na ang tunay na ~*star*~ ng taong ito at ng buhay ko yes wow ay aking super duper cute sungit at sutil na pamangkin!

When people comment na uy ang sarap ng may bata sa bahay kasi may laruan kami. Ang totoo niyan, kaming lahat ang laruan ni Lucas. Hindi mo ‘yan mauuto. Laging may panabla hindi ka mananalo diyan!

Patay nga lang kapag in-english mo na. Ganito ‘yan:

Person: Hi Lucas, how was your day?

Lucas: I’m four!

Malala.

Kung essay writing contest ‘to, talo na ako. Ayoko na mag-reflect, guys. Pagod na pagod na akong mag-isip…

Magmamahal na lang ako.

ARUUUUUU YES WOW BAKET PAANO SINO KAILAN SAAN

If you’re one of the reasons why 2016’s ain’t so bad, ty po! Cheers to making new friends, exploring new places, passing my comprehensive exams, graduating, and falling in love in 2017! The best is yet to come!

Luv u guys lyk a luv song!

Episode CCCLXV: Return of the Belay

Hey guys!!!

Kumusta? How are you spending your holidays? Ako, eto nagre-regenerate ng isip, puso, at diwa for 2016. Noong pumatak ang December 1, it felt like I’m so over everything. I was so spent! In tagalog, lamog. Joke that’s not the direct translation but you get what I mean.

Me as of 1 Dec 2015

#ANGST

Break ko ngayon from my isip puso at diwa regeneration because it’s that time of the year again!

Sobrang napaghahalataan na ang dami kong arte sa buhay.

On a happier sidenote: I like December 31s. Everyone is so positive! Parang ‘yung mga tao lumaklak ng sunshine at pag-asa. December 31 is the happiest ending we experience AND we do it annually. WHOA.

Hehehehehe anyway…

A few days ago, Sosep and I were talking about our failed, almost-love lives (haha, so kailan kaya tayo magiging successful) when he asked me how my 2015 was and how would I describe it.

It could’ve been better. And I only have myself to blame. Looking back, I took each day as it passed – some days were outstanding, most would just suck the outstanding out of me. In short, the bad outweighed the good, making me unleash my inner Kylo Ren all year. In my head, 2015 sucked ass. It’s not only until I decided to pick out my 2015 best nine for Instagram when I realized that, “P*nyeta. Tu-meen angst ako for nothing!” Sabi ng teen angst ko: Better late than never!

Siguro ganito feeling ni Darth Vader noong nagbalik loob na sya sa light side of the Force.

Resolution

I am bad at keeping resolutions. I admit, I have a terrible case of ningas kugon syndrome. Last year, I vowed to have a 366-day project in which I’d take a photo of myself and write something that made me smile or thankful that day. I took self-portraits until day 200+ but the whole optimistic thing didn’t work. I guess it’s safe to say that in my perspective, I was in a really bad place last year.

It was difficult for me to look at things on the bright side and not think about the past. You might notice that I reminisce a lot. Being in the so-called quarter-life crisis, I sought refuge in my college life because it was just too damn awesome. 2011 was my year — a year of achievements, reaching goals, and new experiences. I kept and kept on coming back then I realized, it isn’t healthy anymore. I was stuck and I need to get out of it.

With that being said, my resolution for this 2013 is this:

1X

Move forward. Aahhh, such a pretty phrase.

What about you? What are your resolutions for the new year?
