This year has been a literal roller coaster.
Between world breaking typhoon devastating my hometown and finishing my book, it was one hell of a ride. Let’s recount those dates, the times where I have cried or laughed so hard, to the moments I was filled with disappointment and chased my dreams.
January 28 – My grandfather’s first death anniversary. Definitely a big low. We were very close, as in “I’d walk into our store screaming ‘Good morning’ just to put a smile on his face” close. It was surreal to go through a whole year without him, but since he always appears in my dreams when I miss him, I know he’s always there.
February 14 – This is downright the most romantic thing a guy has ever done for me. But then again, he’s the first guy who I celebrated a anniversary with.
I got to dance for THE VERY FIRST TIME, SOLO, in a public place. It was a hobby, something I did because I just wanted to. And the funny thing is, I always get stage fright. But then I think, “So what?”
My brother graduated high school! Isn’t that awesome? Now I feel old. -.-
I got published! In a magazine that is. This is a first, together with snagging an interview with our city mayor.
Plea, pirouette, and close. I love dancing, more so when I get to have some fun!
I got serious with my blog around this time. Though I could never point out when I really started, I consider this month a time when I really focused on writing.
I got my first acting character for my Theatre Arts subject. I was a pregnant woman. I shocked people in our school by running around with a big blue belly that kept peeking out of my shirt (a blanket).
50th blog post!
I became a godmother. To a very cute little girl.
October 4- I became 18!
November 8- The day everything changed. Our City was ravaged by Haiyan, leaving us in pieces.
December 14 – I got to help survivors like me, through the generous hearts of the people from OATH.
December 16 – Finished my book! And I have sent it to the publishers. Fingers crossed!
And now as I feel the excitement of the new year, I could only be filled with hope that everything will turn out better than before. 😀
Whew. Those were a lot of memories. I guess 2013 was one of the good ones. Now happy New Year to all of you! And I hope that you enjoyed this year as much as I did.
Let’s finish with a dramatic picture from moi. 😀
