2010: Best and Worst

I had the best and worst of everything for 2010.. Well, lahat naman siguro tayo meron! :p


: I got promoted as Mentor/RTA. It's an achievement for me. It's time na siguro to move up. I've been with the company for almost 4 years, and it's time to show improvements on my career.

: I've gained lots of friends, starting sa mga tinuruan kong trainees (from batch 10-15), to fellow Ops people, to friends of friends. Dahil sa kanila, naging 600 na ang friends ko sa Facebook at lahat sila ay kilala ko!

: I was able to open and, hopefully, maintain a savings account. I used to before pero ilang months lang withdrawn na lahat ang laman. Wala pa akong alam nun sa pag-manage ng pera. Ngayon, alam ko na i-value ang pinaghirapan ko. And, of course, it's better to have saved something for the rainy days.

: I've started to live healthy and beautiful by going to the gym and eat in portions. Less rice, more on fruits. I've tried to avoid drinking carbonated drinks and opted for juices and water. I've pampered myself by going to the salon and spa. Clubbing with my friends. Drinking and eating at bar and restos we've never been before.

: I've been to different places, mostly within Manila. From the walled city of Intramuros to Quezon City Memorial Circle. Pinakamalayo ko ng narating ay ang Naga. I've traveled by land, by air and by water. Ang galing!

: I was able to conquer my fear of heights. Ziplining. Kung gaano ako katagal kinumbinse ng mga friends ko, ganun din kadali yung pag-zipline. Wala pang 10 mins, pero enjoy sya. Taking a plane ride. Mas nakakatakot pala ung descending kesa ung ascending pa lang. Aalog-alog pa at nakakabingi.

: Been to a place where I'm a complete stranger, sa Naga. Di kasi ako marunong magsalita at makaintindi ng salitang bikolano. Kailangan pa ng interpreter. I enjoyed the place. Sarap balikan. I left memories there and I'll keep it in my heart forever..

: Started blogging. It's where I've put all my emotions, my thoughts. It helped me ease the pain and hurt. And I love customizing it.

: Gadgets and other stuff. I have my ITouch (the best of all), my phone, my PC. I still subscribed to Cosmo mags. I had my 4th BDJ Planner and I've attended their rendezvous. Shopped for clothes and accessories that suits me.

: I've survived an operation at no cost. Thanks to Maxicare and Philhealth.

: I've come to know my true friends, who were indeed there for me when I needed them. First time ko magka-BFF sa katauhan ni Marq. Napanatili kong strong ang friendship namin nila Apple, Jay, Warren at Sharlene. Kahit magkaka-iba na kami ng work, we still get to keep in touch. I still have the Moms, my college/highshool/elementary friends. And we're able to put up a reunion, kamustahan at kwentuhan sa buhay-buhay.

: I've realized the value of my family. I've felt their unconditional love. On times when I least expected them. Akala ko I can live all by myself. Akala ko I no longer needed their help. I really appreciated them, their time and efforts, nung na-ospital ako. Kahit di kagandahan ang pinakita ko nun, di nila ako pinabayaan, sinamahan nila ako hanggang sa makalabas ako ng ospital. Nang walang hinihinging kapalit.


: The biggest break up I ever had. My 5-year relationship with him has come to an end. I thought it's for keeps. I never had the slightest idea that everything will be over between us. I've given him all the love, care and attention he needed and I never wanted anything in return but his love and affection. But, as the saying goes, some good things never last. I've done all the possibilities to bring us back together but I failed. Maybe it's time for me to give up and move on with my life as solo.

: I've lost my extended family. Akala ko sila na ang makakasama ko aside sa family ko. Akala ko makakatuntong ulit ako sa Naga at makapag-stay sa bahay nila. Makakwentuhan ulit sila.

: I've had a painful operation, and it's literally hurting me. I've stayed in the hospital for 4 days, surrounded with white walls and ceiling, needles and nurses. At totoo palang nakakabaliw kapag na-ospital ka.

: I've experienced the downfall of SBBS. Ang dating masayang environment, ngayon malungkot na at punong-puno ng mga plastic na nilalang. I hate working with them. I hate them.

: I've been in a situation where friendship has been tested. I thought it'll be the end of our friendship. Nakakahinayang because I've trusted this person so much. I've told him all the things that he's not ought to know. But he failed me.

: My brother had an accident and some attacks. We thought we could protect him. We thought we could keep him safe all the time.


Well, those were just highlights of what I've been through for the year 2010. May masaya, may malungkot. I owed much to these people, who've stayed, came and left me. I've gained learnings through experience. I'm blessed to have been surrounded with things & people I love. But to top it all, I am so thankful that these things made me a better and stronger person.
