2019 has come! In four months time, I’m turning a year older. It kinda makes me sad because I feel like I haven’t achieved something significant yet, but at the same time, I’m also thankful to the Lord for adding up another year in my life.
It’s past 2am and here I am, blogging. Actually, I just had my dinner. I know it’s not good but I wasn’t hungry earlier because of the milk tea I have intaken this afternoon. I had a date with AJ before he flies back to Manila later this morning. We’re back to LDR again, but I’m gonna see him soon. I am very happy he stayed in Cebu for almost 3 weeks. I wanted to accompany him going to the airport later but his flight is too early. He has to leave by dawn.
Anyhoodle, I would like to share some of my 2018 highlights.
January. Started my year by traveling to Manila for work and a little vacation.
February. Finally got to tick Bantayan Island off my bucket list. Celebrated Valentine’s Day the LDR way. Got to play badminton again after so many years.
March. Spent quality time with my former teammates. Not much happening this month though.
April. My birth month. The boyfriend tried to surprise me. Well, it was such a fail because his sister told me he’s coming home. She didn’t know it was supposed to be a surprise. Also, I was confined in the hospital for being so overfatigued and I fainted in one of the malls in Cebu. Yep, that was very unforgettable. Please don’t remind me about it in the future.
May. I had my first international travel with AJ’s family to Singapore. Celebrated his birthday in another country.
June. After 4 years and 2 months, I resigned from my first job. The day after my last day of work, I brought mama to Manila for the first time. She enjoyed so much that she didn’t want to go back to Cebu, lol. This was also the month I started my online business of selling clothes.
July. One of my bestfriends invited me for book shopping when Big Bad Wolf came to Cebu. Attended my college classmate’s wedding and was one of the bridesmaids.
August. I flew to Manila for the third time this year. Stayed there for almost a month. I went to the gym for the first (and last) time with AJ’s officemate who turned out to be my friend instantly. I was about to look for a job there when my family had an emergency and I was the only rescue, so I had to fly back home immediately. Started a new job at a construction site as my father’s secretary/assistant.
September. Celebrated our third anniversary. AJ’s second attempt to surprise me. This time it was a total success.
October. Quick vacation to Negros for my cousin’s wedding and had to rush myself into the doctor’s clinic because of the unusual rashes appearing all over my body. Glad I’m still alive until now. Flew to Malaysia on the last day of the month.
November. Tricity trip (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand) with my former colleagues. Spent Christmas a little way too early with my girl friends. We renovated some part of our house, including my room.
December. Went to Sirao Flower Farm with my relatives. Shopped for gifts. Dinner with some of my closest friends from work back then. Spent the actual Christmas lying on bed all day.
That’s it. I guess to basically sum up my 2018, it was more on travels and quality time with my family and friends. Whatever it went, I am beyond grateful I survived the year despite my shortcomings. This 2019, I am claiming it’s my year. Well, seems like everybody wishes the same. May the odds be ever in our favor, folks.
