I wonder if people still read this.
First of all, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :)
Quite a bit has happened since I last posted a few weeks back, both good and bad. But I'm kinda lazy to go over it all. I spent Christmas with my family, and honestly, it was kinda lonely. Which was remedied when my cousins and other relatives came from Bicol, Hawaii and Davao. The house was nice and noisy. I went with my cousins to Mall of Asia and Enchanted Kingdom, and had a nice time. We all spent New Year together at my uncle's house, and though we didn't have fireworks of our own, it was fun watching the fireworks that were constantly lighting up the sky around us. Our parents even had us jumping on trampolines to grab money from trees. (Long, weird story. XD) Shortly after that though, they all left. Even my brother did; he went with my cousin Bicol, and now I'm all alone here in the house. XP
I was able to see Ginno right before school started again; he stayed at the house for a pretty long time. XD T'was nice. :) Speaking of Ginno, in a few days it'll be the tenth of the month. Lately we've been having a some problems, which is to be expected in any relationship, and I'm glad that in a few days, despite these problems, we'll soon have been together for eight months. Just a few more to go and it'll be a year! Happy happy. :)
Crystal, my aunt/cousin from Davao, was one of my cousins who came to stay here at the house for the New Year. It was really nice having her around. The last time she was here was a few years ago; she was staying in Manila because she was studying in UP, but that was cut short when she was held up, and she decided to go back to Davao. I was really happy to see her again. Her first stay here was really nice for me, even if she kinda used me as a dumping ground for all her opinions and stuff. XD But she's probably the closest to an 'ate' that I've ever had. I was a bit scared that our relationship would change, especially because of the lack of communication and the time we spent apart and stuff, but luckily it was like old times; I just understood a lot more, since last time I was in high school while she was in college and our circumstances were a lot different back then. I hope we get to see each other again sooner than we expect.
Ryan's left for England. :( It's sad. Well, it's not really sad, but it just reminds me of what I had to do when I moved from Japan and moved here. I had to leave everything that I had already gotten comfortable with for something, somewhere completely new. Back then, I do admit that the only thought I had was the fact that I was leaving; leaving everything that I knew. But now that I've lived here for six years, have met wonderful people, have seen kick-ass sights, and had loads of experiences that I would have never had in Japan, I guess my world has somewhat grown in a way. Back to Ryan, I know that even if technically we're being left behind, we're still a part of him, in the way that we've influenced the person that he is. Holding him back from that wouldn't be right. I'll miss him though. We didn't know each other for long, but Ryan is definitely a friend of mine. I hope he has a great time in England. And a large house too (like the one here!) so we can all crash it one of these days. XD
The ACET (Ateneo College Entrance.. Test? XD) is on January 14. AHMAYGHAD. Less than ten days! I really really really need to pass the ACET, if ever I'm to successfully transfer to ADMU. To be honest, I'm a little freaked. Seriously, the ACET last time racked my brain. There's no Science, but I definitely need to brush up on my Math and general knowledge. ABSTRACT REASONING OMG. XD
Did I make resolutions last year? ...Ok no I didn't. XD I dunno if I will this year either. But I think it'd be interesting to actually do New Years Resolutions for a change. I also have to update my Wish List. Maybe I'll put the whole list on a separate site, but a little of it here. That's what I'll do. I should post a note telling myself to do that somewhere here. Hmm.
Oh yeah, guess what? I've got a non-pro Driver's License, yo! XD I just got it last month. I can drive! But all I need now is a car.. and practice. We actually have a motorcycle/scooter as well (our contractor is giving it to us to pay off some loans he has), so I can learn how to ride that, too. XD I don't think Mum would let me ride it past Ever though. The scooter looks a bit used, and I don't think she trusts it that much. LOL. Surprisingly enough, mum used to rider a motorcycle when she was my age, and it wasn't a scooter/motorcycle, it was really a motorcycle! But it wasn't hers; it was her boyfriend's. :p Maybe I'll learn how to ride like she used to. That'd be cool. ;) Oh, and another reason to get into ADMU: my parents will get me a car if I make it, supposedly. o:
I forgot to mention that I finally got around to buying myself a new MP3 Player. My old player was an MP10 Digitalway MP3 player. It became my old MP3 player because in second year high school the LCD cracked during our school fair. It actually still works until now... well, sorta. It still plays music and stuff, but I can't hook it up to the PC because the cord is broken or something, and the PC doesn't detect that the player is plugged in. Not only that, but the music manager program was CRAP. Oh yeah, and only half of the LCD is readable. It makes a nice expensive mirror, though. XD Anyway, I managed to save up enough money to buy myself an iPOD Nano, 8G. 11.2k yo. I used up all the money I had saved up since I bought this PC to buy it. It was worth it though; Vione (my iPOD :D) is nice to have around, and she's small enough to bring around nearly everywhere. I just put her in a big bulky box because I don't want her to get scratched or anything. XD Ginno got her a cute orange (ORANGE <3) iPOD sock, with matching orange/yellow kitty to help with earphone slack. :3
Anyway, I think this post is long enough for now. XD
Blogging is one of the things I really enjoy doing, (I talk to myself when I don't let out my thoughts somehow XD) and I hope I don't just stop because I'm lazy or something.
HAH! I know!
One of my resolutions will be to keep this blog updated, at least once a week. :D
There's definitely more to come. Here's to 2007. Cheers. :3
