i remember receiving a pair of roller blades from santa claus when i was in grade 1. yes, it was number one in my wish list that time. i never had any idea of ‘answered prayers’ before; all i knew was that, I had to write the christmas gift that i wanted and hope for santa’s kindness so that it may be granted.
until grade 5, i still believed in santa claus. had i not seen my mother wrapping the surprise gift for me, probably i am still making my materialistic wish lists up to now. but the picture didn’t change my desire to receive gifts every christmas. i still enjoy christmas and i still receive gifts from my parents.
i am now 20 but this season always brings out the child in me. i still hope for material things but could not write them all down on a piece of paper anymore. i cannot even hand that piece of paper to my parents because i am mindful that the santa claus could not be anybody else but me.
i am my own santa claus now. and along with this shift are the changes in my desires for christmas. i believe some things are just worth listing and this time, i pray BIGTIME for them to happen.
1. the success of the alternative treatment of my adviser. i will always be one with you in your prayers for this, maam.
2. the reconciliation reunion of the BT! i know there will never be a complete attendance in a year’s time but i hope, at least, everybody will be humbled by the things we’ve been through for the past months.
3. a good job for me. 😀
now, you may bring down your eyebrow (i know the other one’s raised while reading the 3 wishes).
all set for christmas!
for the past 19 christmas celebrations, much has been given to me. this year, i can only hope and pray so much. one thing’s for sure, i will be the happiest person if all these things take place on christmas… the best christmas will be mine.
merry christmas everyone! cheers!

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 met…many learning I have derived, and all of these have aggregated to mold me. Life remains good. God has always been giving.

Now i am all rushing things to have everything done before I go back to Davao.
I am more than halfway on my data gathering for my thesis. The process was so-so. I mean, it wasn’t too difficult to ‘penetrate’ my respondents for some reasons. However, when I started checking the survey sheets, I began getting troubled.
UNSETTLED! I realized I was uber-rushing things now that time is already too limited. Though this is no-new-issue to me, I am still in panic mode because this is my THESIS — and this will make or break me! O.O
I have really mastered the art of procrastination down to whatever comprises it. Cram! And now, it’s CRAP. I think I am anticipating a crap for my haphazard way of doing things.
For now, I just don’t know where to start. The most unfortunate part of being wretched. =(
