(I’m totally saying hello to myself, BTW.)
Hello, hello, hello! How are you all doing?! It’s been a while since my last life update, and this has made me feel quite disconnected and incomplete, to be honest. I know, it sounds a bit pathetic, but you gots tah understand that I pretty much consider this blog as one of my horcruxes. So. Yeah. @_@
Anyway, I am back! In the past month or so of only posting random YouTube videos and reviews and what-have-yous, these awesome things happened:
01. Saw these amazing bunch of people again (my college org friends) after months of not doing so. I missed them so much. The jokes we share will never get old.
02. Had an impromptu wedding gig with the DLSZ Alumni Chorale. Impromptu because I was called to sub only 14 hours before the actual gig. I was all, “Well, what the heck, I desperately want to sing again, anyway,” although I was very much swamped with school work. Haha. But it was all worth it. The day ended fabulously for so many different reasons. Har.
03. Received snail mail from one of my awesome friends. Nothing can ever compare to the feeling of receiving messages the old-fashioned way. The longing/surprise involved is just priceless. 🙂
04. Last but DEFINITELY not least, I’ve finally submitted all my requirements for school! Which means I am free! I’ve also passed all my subjects this term (at least that’s what I was told), which pretty much means I’ve already completed my second degree. Woohoohoo! The last term was hell, I should probably stop studying now. Or, like, just learn off iTunes U and Coursera from now on. :))
I’d like to thank my sponsors: Mother Dearest, for my tuition; Kuya Alvin, for donating to the Send Abby To School Fund a.k.a I’ve spent all my allowance on stupid stuff so please have mercy on me (lolz); Kuya Toffet, for lending me his external hard drive; and Mark, for buying me that 8GB thumb drive when we were in Singapore last July. Couldn’t have gotten through this year without all of you! 😀
Anyway, right now, I’m just enjoying (?) the holidays. Haha. Question mark right there ’cause I actually still have work to do. I was given a freelance job by one of my profs and so far, it’s proven to be quite challenging. But aside from that, I’ve got hangouts with friends and family to look forward to this weekend. I’ve also got seasons 1-5 of Gossip Girl to re-watch, given the recent conclusion of the series. Still can’t get over the fact that *blank* is actually Gossip Girl! SERIOUSLY!!!
Oh, oh, oh! I’ve also been going to Simbang Gabi (dawn mass) the past few days (as I’ve been doing for the past 3 or 4 years). We’re currently on day 6! So many miracles have happened already so far — what they are, I shall reveal soon. 🙂
I hope you’re all doing great so far! Tell me about your holiday plans! I’m still looking for the perfect thing my family and I could do this Christmas. I’m kind of hoping it would involve dressing up ’cause I bought a particularly awesome dress last time I was in New York and I still haven’t gotten the chance to wear it. LOLZ.
