Enter Abby v. 24 Beta

New Features: 
50 times more intolerant to BS and 50 times less likely to settle.

Things have been happening behind the scenes lately. Some, confusing and some just plain annoying that I had to make a conscious effort to revamp, reorganize, regroup and basically come up with a newer version of myself. I don’t like what I’ve allowed myself to turn into in this one aspect of my life and I’m glad I got to bop myself in the head before things got worse. I got to share this with my cousin last week and she said something along the lines of, “Parang it’s an insult to you.” She can be really wise sometimes. My personal Luna Lovegood. Haha!

Anyway, aside from that, life has been pretty great! In the past week, I’ve gone out a bunch of times with my most favorite people, been blessed through my participation in activities with my new charismatic community, went for (and passed) a job interview, and been generally reminded of just how God truly loves me when 1) CT scan results came back last Thursday and 2) when I saw just how much I’ve come out of my shell in the past 6 months.

Lemme break it down for you (whuuuuut).

FAVORITE PEOPLE: Self-explanatory. We had a bonding session over brunch last Saturday and I learned a lot of interesting stuff (Dadaf thinks “interesting” is an understatement, though, haha)!

CHARISMATIC COMMUNITY: I’ve been part of this Catholic Charismatic Community for a month now and each meeting has been such a blessing so far. Every time I get home from worship, I always feel like a big load has been lifted off my shoulders, it’s crazy! Indeed, anyone who is weary and tired will be given rest in Him. 🙂

JOB INTERVIEW: I went to an interview at Ortigas last Friday (bringing my visit count to that area up to 4 in this week alone! #southerner) and, uhh, passed it. Not sure if I’m going to take it, though, ’cause the work hours are a bit arduous so…

CT SCAN: I’ve been in remish (Happy Endings is rubbing off on me, I swear!) for 1 and 1/2 years now, and thanks to all your prayers, I got good news last Thursday! Everything’s clear and the calcified nodes from before have gone down from 12mm to 8mm and that’s just SPECTACULAR!!! Gosh. I’ve been a bit of a wreck on the days leading to the CT scan ’cause I felt like I hadn’t taken care of myself as much as I should have in the past 2 months. Add that to the fact that I’ve been experiencing pains on my left underarm the past 2 weeks (that’s kind of a sensitive area when it comes to my illness so imagine just how freaked out I was). I told my doctor about it and he said it was probably just a broken vessel and I should just take painkillers. Phew. It’s gone now. Didn’t even have to take meds. LOL. But anyway, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all your prayers (to FC, for sending an Iris message to Zeus, hehe). Your care really means a lot. I still stand by what I said before — you guys are the reason why I’m still here. 🙂 ♥

COMING OUT OF LE SHELL: I found this in my email inbox yesterday…

Which then led me to post this on Facebook…

And since Filipinos are awesome voters (and I have fantastic family and friends + an amazing Potter community), I got a whopping 140 likes on the first few hours alone. So if I were to assume that each of those people voted for me 10 times, I’d already have 1400 votes and I’d be in the running to become America’s Next Top Modelfor le Hogwarts Choir? 😀

I’ve been refreshing my page every few minutes today and it’s crazy how the likes keep going up! I’m already on 351 likes and 22 tweets as of writing and just. YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING, MY HEART IS GOING TO EXPLODE SOON. 

I also got to read this from a stranger who shared my link:

Abby Sanchez is an awesome singer. She should make it in the Hogwarts Choir. She sang ‘Part of That World’ (Theme from The Little Mermaid) extraordinarily beautiful. God Bless Abby. She should pursue her singing career. She’s got talent!

Me right now. I can’t even.

Comments like those really mean a lot to me ’cause I’ve always found it hard to believe in my “talents”. Whenever people I know compliment me, I feel like they’re just being nice. I know it’s quite stupid but meh. I’m yet to completely get over that weakness of mine.

So yes. THANK YOU! To all those who have voted/shared/liked/tweeted so far, I love you all, from the very bottom of my heart to the top of my spleen! I hope you could continue voting for me and sharing the link to your friends! Here it is again. 🙂

P.S. I said that 2012 would be God’s year. I wonder why He’s making it mine as well.

Comments are love! Make sure to leave one! ♥
