Bye 2014, Hello 2015!

“The older you get, the faster time seems to go”

2014 passed way faster than the previous years but it will leave me a jar full of wonderful and awesome memories. So before 2014 closes its curtains, I want to recall what really did happen and be grateful for all the blessings, learnings and those people who walked with me this year.

11.Busy but happy days at work

If I were to summarize my 2014, it will be work-work-work. It was definitely a busy year but I am happy with it, why? Because I learned a lot of things and made me realize the things I want to do in life.

2. Me, an Emergency Hiree (EH)

My eyes are now opened wide with the reality we are in.

‘Nuff said. Just a big “thank you” to my friends in corporate world for making me feel this way (-_____-) (I hate you guys, huhu).

3. A lot of not-so-goodbye and real goodbyes

Some of my friends migrated, others went overseas to work, and there are those have rested and joined our Creator. It was then I realize that time really is fast – you’ll never know when will be the last time you’ll talk to a person.

Our kasabayan EHs in our department also left this year. March and June for “JaRen” and by second semester, my dearest ate at work left us – the same ate who encouraged me that I can do it, huhu. I still miss her even though she’s sumpungin :p

So say hello to the newest batch of CRIOD babies ❤


Just thank You Lord for my siblings at work!

4. Enjoyed my life – not really that enjoyed but somehow tried to get out of the box

I tried my best to be a semi-kaladkarin friend and succeeded around 30% of it. I’ve been a lakwatsera so my piggy bank is empty. But hey, it’s the memories that matter 😉


And highlights? TAGAY-AY!


5. Love life

It’s been a roller coaster ride for my emotions but as what my kuya at work told me, “Ikaw lang ang affected,” noted po kuya *sigh*

6. Realizations

I’ve realized the things I want to do in life, but it’s still vague.  So I’m trying to figure out an effective workplan for this. Oh please, just wish me luck.

Okay, let me take this opportunity to say thank you to all my loved ones who have been part of my 2014 – the reason for all those smiles and tears :p

For the love, care and support in everything that I do, for the patience and understanding for all my shortcomings and moodswings, just simply for everything 🙂

For understanding my situation (LOL). I will still try my very best to make up for the lost times. I miss all of you!

Do not be in a hurry

I know, I know. I keep on saying that I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but something inside me contradicts everything that I say.

I had a chance to talk with my senior officemates about marriage during our lunch break and all I did was listen to them with awe as they try to impart their personal experiences and advices regarding this matter.

The bottomline of our conversation is, “don’t be in a hurry.” And I must say, they are right. But, I can’t take away the fact that the more I get older, the more batchmates of mine marry, the more I fear of being alone.

I know I’m still young but thinking of how fast time runs in early 20’s is indeed quite.. I don’t know (I can’t think of a word that best describes it). As I get older every year, my anxiety now exceeds the borderline.

All I know is I dream of having my own family – spouse-slash-bestfriend and children – and I am very eager to achieve it someday. And before I can attain it, I have to find myself and be better first for the “future family”.

I don’t want to be grow old alone, seriously.


It started to sink-in

I told myself that this blog won’t be that personal but I can’t help myself. None of my constant ka-chikahan friends are online, so better write it here before the emotions subside.

I’ve been an active job hunter this month. And as I keep on browsing for potential work, reality started to sink in – that there are not enough vacancies for your ideal job, hence you’ll end up with something that’s in between or really outside your ideals; or maybe, you really just don’t fit in.

To be honest, I am was a fan of ‘go reach for your dreams’. But as months passed by, I started to think how and where will I end up if I continue being like this. There were opportunities that should have been a great help in reaching my dreams but when I’m on its doorstep, it would suddenly shut without me knowing it. I waited patiently but time had already surpassed my waiting. So here I am, left far behind.

As I look through the openings, I realized that I have certain inclination to a certain profession, which in fact is not new to me. I already knew it even when I was in elementary or high school, it just didn’t became my priority. Okay. So I don’t want to give further details because it’s quite complicated. I just hope I can talk to one of my friends ASAP.


I believe in God’s plans 🙂 He never fails us 🙂
