2011 has been a very long road trip. Encounters. Minor accidents. Giving way. Detours. U-turns. Smooth road. Humps. Humps. Humps.
But before I get to another blind curve, it surely feels good to have a retrospective look at the rear view mirror for the twists and turns I had on a 12-month drive.
1st stop: The end of the callboy experience
My best team. Team Lyra. I miss youuuuu so much!
Some of the real friends I found in Suth. I know you all miss me. Haha!
I was reading my 2010 year-end post where I wrote, ‘But I admit I need to leave the job soon to find what’s best for me.’ Indeed, I left before the last quarter of the month. But I am happiest with my then job. Graveyard. Vices. Good pay. Parties. Everything. It was even tough leaving the company because of the people I enjoyed working with. But I had to and I know I made the right choice.
2nd stop: Back-to-school
Hello graduate school! I didn’t want to but I have to. I need to make the most out of my idle days. But I’m enjoying, except that statistics is still there and the feeling is still mutual, we both bore each other.
3rd stop: On-the-spot trips
At Blue Jazz. Because we're just crazy like that!
We always get hyped on water, eh? Haha! Pools and beaches are the best escapes from the stressful work environment and the above pic is certainly one of the best.
4th stop: New gang
Meet the porn stars, beybeh!
Did you notice I always introduce new set of friends every year-end post? Haha! Alas! I have new friends this year again. The best people to eat with, to watch movie with, to act diva with.
5th stop: Big Joe
How do I say this with much subtlety? Well I promised to name names and Axe, you are one of the many friends I have that I will always be thankful for. And I guess, most of the days this year, we were together. Boardmates. 😀 Thank you for being the best person to cry on, for laughing even at my worst jokes, for spoiling me with your recipes. For the record, I am happy with the new path you’re taking, your lovelife, your career and everything you’ve been enjoying lately. I can only hope for the best for you. Cheers!
6th stop: The beejayentee drama
meet my co-histrionic friend.
sometimes we look semi-humans.
I’m making this the highlight of the year. Perhaps, everything changed because of this person. My friends say I’ve changed. Made me quit smoking, made me act weird, made me eat my pride, made me carbonara (HAHA!). Anyhoe, meet NT. And he brought drama drastically to my life. But he’s more than that. He is a bestfriend, an older sib and younger sib at the same time, a teacher, a disciplinarian, a hero and the best sleeping buddy. Haha! Thank you, NT, for bringing me to a new and different side of the world (Blah blah. Whatever they think of this line). I look forward to a new year of adventure with you.
7th stop: I’m back to the real world
YES! Before the year ends, I am proud to say I am back to the corporate world. New challenge. New environment. Thank you, pag-ibig.
This has been a good year, I must say. I’ve had enough taste of good career, happy family, and interesting affairs (be it decent or otherwise. HAHA!). And I guess, this is the right time for me to express how grateful I am to everybody who became a part of my year’s journey. Thank you, friends and lovers.
Come 2012, I know better things await my way. I’m excited. That orgasmic feeling. Yes. Orgasmic.
Thank you, 2011! Welcome and give us a bang, 2012!
p.s.: This year gave me the first car accident experience. Just earlier, I accidentally bumped the back part of the car infront of me while maneuvering my way to the exit. Thank you, NT, for saving me from that trouble.
