HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
Admittedly, I’m in a great mood now because my January 1 Trauma has been overcome, thanks to the fact that Dispatch’s opening salvo for the year does not involve anyone of my ships. (But I’m still shocked about Lee Seung Gi and YoonA, though I didn’t feel like punching anyone in the face after reading the news on my cellphone.)
In the spirit of recalling what the previous year has become for me, I can say that my personal life has been GREAT. I finally got a new team at work, and while it’s not perfect, it’s thousands of miles better than my previous one. I finally had peace of mind and very little work-related stress which I haven’t experienced for about seven years. For that alone, I am thankful.
2013 is also a milestone year for me in many ways. I entered a new decade this year, though I don’t feel any older. In fact, many of those who learned what my real age is couldn’t believe it and said I look so much younger. As opposed to the past where I only feel younger but look so much older. That’s a blessing I should be thankful for, right?
I had three opportunities to travel last year, and while it wasn’t my first time in any of them, each experience felt like new for me. My Korea trip last July was the first time I lead the group because my usual travel buddies who act as navigator and translator weren’t with us. I went to Boracay with Voltes, where I had to wade through flood waters just to reach the airport and we had to wait more than six hours before we finally got to board the plane. And then I tried drowning myself voluntarily by signing up for helmet diving and did everything wrong so I almost got killed in the process. NEVER AGAIN. In October, I went to Hong Kong and Macau with my parents. It has always been my dream to take my parents to a vacation and that dream was fulfilled last year.
As for the AgentP side of me… I didn’t bother to backread my blog entries like I always do every year because (1) I won’t be reading much; I think I wrote the least amount of blog entries last year; and (2) I know that most of what I’ll be reading is crap. It started off bad and ended ‘meh’. Things might change tomorrow once he releases his new album, though. Hey, I’m still hopeful.
I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions nor wishes. I’ll just live my life one day at a time, and pray that everything will be all right.
