because… because…

my parents finally made a decision. all my life, i have never made a decision on my own. they do the job for me. it was never an issue though; i was never confident about my decisions. and so last friday, my mom told me to go and find myself pursue the thing i wanted for so long.

no i’m schooling again. no i’m not yet going to dubai. no i’m not going to audition for big brother. no i’m not marrying. no i’m not undergoing any surgical operation.

and no, i am not going to a self-exile again.

and so maybe if nobody leaves a comment before 3pm today, you may wait for about a day or two for me to reply to your comment/s. my house there doesn’t have internet connection. maybe i’d eat breakfast in wifi zone food establishments so i can still update my blog and stuff alike.

p.s.: together with your prayers for the success of this endeavor, i ask you to pray, too, for the safety of this world most especially those at the pacific region including the philippines. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before starting this year-end entry, i wish to thank maan for influencing me to write this. Cheers maan!

If there’s one memorable year i want to live again and again, I’d be self-debating between 2008 and 2009. But I guess, 2009 makes itself very competitive for the happiest and most unforgettable year award, so far.

The People

Gray. Thanks for sharing the 1.5 months of this year. It added to the 9 months we had. You made me more human when we had to end everything on February 22 this year. The friendship continues. ๐Ÿ™‚

Barkadahang Tunay. I guess, 2009 is our year. This year, we called ourselves BT. Who’d have thought we’d go a long way after sharing drunk and smoking nights for years? Whatever melons we have right now, I will always be the Beans you’ve known, Rai, Anj, Corinne, Elton, Stella, Gold, Krisha, Joan, Elton and Ram.

gold, elton, anj, beans, rai, ste, krish, joan, coh.



Rai.
Everybody knows how we’ve been through this year. We laughed. We cried. We smoked. We drank. We slept together. We laughed and laughed and laughed. And we will always miss doing that because I know we have to move our separate ways. It pains but we’re cool about it. And that’s more important, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

Ron. This year, we just realized the thing we used to dream when we were still in our younger years – that after you graduate, we’d share a home in Davao. It happened! I had to sacrifice an hour a day from Roxas to UP just to spend nights talking with you. And I never regret everything. You are still one of the best!

The Mams, Jepoi and Loloi. Since I entered UP, I never had the intention of befriending the two of you. Atik lang. But this year, I guess (and I am sure) we had the best quality time of our lives. I love listening to your stories, to your escapades, and stuff alike. Our tanduay and red horse nights will remain witnesses to our wildness. You know how much I miss you and our sessions. More to come. Cheers!

Mom Jen. The thesis adviser, the mentor, the joker, THE BEST! It’s more than touching that you have to wait for me up to the last minute of the day just to sign my thesis. I will always remember you, mom, and you will always be included in my prayers. Hope to see you soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Acads

This is one great reason for me to call this year a year! I couldn’t be more thankful after finally ending my college life. Yes, I survived in UP. *sigh* This year marks the end of my struggles, sleepless nights, cramming nights, delayed papers and the like. This year, I finally had the product of my grueling months as a senior student — my thesis! It’s over. And I can just jump and do cartwheels and flares because of it!

Blogging

This year, I finally started blogging. February 7’s the night. And as i checked my first entry, a line in it says “i know this would again suck but who cares?” Did this really suck? Be honest. haha. I don’t care, anyway. My blog serves as the sponge to my emotions so it doesn’t really matter if this sucks.

And mid this year, I created another blog. It’s in Tagalog at ngayon ay patuloy itong naghahatid ng ka-melonan para sa mga readers kong taga-Luzon. Ayos.

The Trips

Year 2009, I had the memorable trips of my life.

First stop, Camiguin baybeh! Thanks to my Photography class for finally letting me experience the beauty of Camiguin. And as I blogged, I shall return!

Second stop, Cebu! I parteyed, prayed, and had so much fun in Cebu! Thanks to Corinne and Gold for making the whole trip possible. Thanks to Rai, Kris John, Nat2 and the rest of the gang for making our stay in Cebu worth-while. I will surely come back! I have to. ๐Ÿ™‚

Melons

And now I finally have you. I know you will never read this but one thing’s for sure, I am proud to have you in my life. Thanks for coming. Thanks for making me feel special. Thanks for being sweet. You made my December, you ended my year with a bang! I love you. AJA!

Year 2009 is my year. It brought countless smiles, less pain and overwhelming happiness. I loved. I stumbled. I moved on. And now I am living the life I wanted. It made me feel blessed. It’s a better year. I’d settle to calling this a better year because I want my succeeding years to be the best. I know I will have more in the years to come.

For now, I just want to express my heartfelt thanks to the people who made my year more memorable. Thank you! High five!

Cheers to a wonderful 2009 and a promising 2010!

BEANS.

Naturally free-minded, blithe and light-hearted.

An innate talker who sometimes seems to be not sensible but actually is sensible.

Most of the time frisky and fun to be with.

Inquisitive, always one brave soul, observant and cool.

Secretly secretive.

Everybody’s friend and nobody’s enemy.

-Rea, best buddy

VINCENT AMORIO. A super ordinary masculine name added to a not-so-famous family name. A name given to a baby boy after his parents’ favorite song by Don McLean. Two names that mean much to him. Two names that he wanted to associate to and to speak for himself: Vincent, derived from a Latin verb ‘vincere‘ meaning ‘to conquer’ and Amorio, a Spanish term for love-making.

I was born and raised in the nondescript town of Polomolok, 20-kilometer from the nearest city, 60-kilometer from the region’s capital… a walk away from nowhere. I was born to a family with two other boisterous boys and one lovely girl, in our 328 square-meter kingdom.

Twenty summers have passed since then. The years taught me lots of lessons and left special marks in my being. As I trudged on through my journey, many people I have metโ€ฆmany learning I have derived, and all of these have aggregated to mold me. Life remains good. God has always been giving.

(This was a part of my paper in my intercultural communication subject. An autobiography.)
