New start on old habits


Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.

-Benjamin Franklin



Today is December 31, 2007, my last chance to post an entry for this year. And it's really quite hard to write a year ender entry since a lot of thoughts are running on my mind now. But whenever i start writing, all those thoughts seem to go and disappear. It's kinda weird but it always happens to me. Bummer...

So how was 2007 for me? To tell you that truth, it's not that easy. However, i can still say that it had been a great year even though i experienced tougher problems, issues and responsibilities.

One thing that made this year ok for me is that I graduated last March with flying colors. I wasn't really expecting it though i hoped for it. And i was really happy it did come true because i know i made my family proud.

Also, i got myself entered in one of the most prestigious university in the Philippines. There, i met new people that i know i would always cherish. Honestly, at first i didn't expect that i would like them. If you have read my post entitled "A new beginning", i stated there that "it was a big mistake to study there". But as days went by, i realized i was wrong. They were such lovely people. I think i just had that "my-life-is-perfect-in-high-school-and-i-don't-want-to-move-on" impression. Yeah it was really lame. But atleast i managed to throw that idea away. :]

This year, i learned so many things. I've learned more about love, trust, honesty, faith, life, et al. Most of them i learned through tragic and happy experiences and some are from the TV Series that i've watched. Yeah, you read it right. TV SERIES. Well they're educational too you know! haha.

What i just don't like about this year are those wrong decisions i have made. And the sad part is, i think i'm making "choosing wrong decisions" as a hobby. There are a lot of things i can't take back anymore. And it's really depressing. Another thing is, i usually practice procrastination. I hate it, but i still do it.

So now, i just wish 2008 would be a better year for me. I hope i'll be able to improve all the aspects of my life. Also, i hope i'll be more optimistic than before and be able to set my priorities more clearly.

Happy new year to you!

That 100X100 stuff that makes people go crazy


"When you put something on the internet today, be ready to see them in different sites tomorrow. "

Lately, I've been really addicted to a huge number of TV Series and Movies. And in fact, you may always see me in front of our televison or pc monitor.

In line with this addiction of mine, i also have been digging some icons of these series and movies. Check some of these awesome creations that i have found:






Heroes

Smallville

Dawson's Creek

The O.C

One Tree Hill

Star Wars Episode I-III

Closer

[If it happens that you're the fantastic maker of one of these icons, please tell it to me and i'll gladly credit you here.]

For time and all eternity

"Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry."

-Tom Mullen

After so many years of surmounting problems and trials together, my sister, Darlyn, and now brother-in-law, Gilverth, finally decided to become as one and be sealed for time and all eternity as they exchanged vow last Friday, December 21, 2007.

I was really happy seeing my sister marry an amazing guy which has the same faith and standards as we have.

I've been a witness to their roller coaster love story. I've seen them in their happiest and darkest days together. And honestly speaking, i once dreamed of writing their story in a book because it was really different from any other love story i, or maybe even you, have ever seen or heard. And who knows? Maybe i'll be able to do it someday.

The wedding was simple yet holy and sacred. In fact, my sister even told me that what's more important is the ordinance that they did inside the temple rather than the celebration of the wedding itself. And indeed, my sister was right.
It was such a wonderful event.





We are really ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY now

[though Kuya Toto, my 2nd to the eldest sister's hubby, and Dale, his son, were missing. Where could they be? Eating again? lol]
