Thank you, 2012

It’s been a year of rough starts, unexpected surprises and happy endings. this is how I describe 2012.

On the first six months of 2012, I resigned, back from freelancing and surprisingly happy with the unexpected surprises that come along the way. I still love to stay at my former office, but things went bad unexpectedly and I’m glad that it was over. My plans of going back to school didn’t went through, my finances went down and I’m back into jobhunting again. What keeps me going is my friends and former officemates who are still there for me despite the difficulties that I went through, and until now, i’m still grateful for everything because of them.

On the remaining 6 months of 2012, there are unexpected changes, surprising blessings, more stronger friendships and newly-found love. I launched my new personal blog in a new domain on my angel sister’s birthday and I’m sticking to it. I found volunteering for a fun run challenging and fulfilling, and I learned a lot from the people behind it. I also met a lot of people who share the same love for running and it makes me want to run for longer distances. I finally found a job here before the year ends and love my newly-found office here in Makati. I went back to the choir and once again fell for the songs from the heart. And lastly, I found love in the most unexpected places. I just hope that this will last.

despite the drawbacks this year has given to me, i’m still thankful that there are some people who stayed and made my 2012 a very special one.

So thank you, 2012 for being awesome. I’m also looking forward for an amazing 2013. Hope that it’ll be more awesome than ever.

2013, bring it on! 😀
