HEY JANELLE!!! ^_^ i havent seen or talked to you in forever!!! how have you been??
HOME SWEET HOME AT LAST <3
YAY!!!!! im with my teddies again!!!! ^_^ man…its nice to be home and to be able to sleep in my own bed. i know i know…you must be confused because vacation stared 3 nights ago. well, i actually got picked up in long beach at 12 then home for 3 hours then off to vegas for the weekend so tonight would be my second night back and man does it feel good. =] i find it more this year that i miss home than last. i remember my first year away i NEVER wanted to go home! it was like a chore for me….but i guess the excitement of the college life is over and done with and thats a good thing. im appreciating now all the stuff that i can only get from coming home. the most exciting of course is seeing the happy smiles on my parents faces when walk inside the house. my mom especially. dang, she can NOT stop smiling and talking whenever i come home. (sadly, i think that has to do with my bro too cuz he never wants to talk to her! lol.) but anyways, im just glad for the break from school cuz man..this sememster was a doozy… =[ i did NOT do as well as i should of. i passed all my classes, but through the skin of my teeth and i am not happy about that. i shouldve done WAY better, and not just for me, but for my parents because they pay for EVERYTHING. i owe them enough to at least study hard and try my best, which i have not been doing. and i feel guilty about it too because all they ask is for me to do is study and i cant seem to do that for them while they work all day for hours on end to pay thousands to send me to school. oh no. that will not do. so no more! this next semester i gotta buckle down and get to work!! so…study parties anyone?? =]
on a brighter note…CHRISTMAS IS ONLY 5 DAYS AWAY!!!! ohhhh yea…. haha! ok, so is it just me or does Christmas get less and less exciting with every passing year?? man…thats just a sign that we’re gettin older. =[ Damn. oh well! at least the meaning of Christmas still doesnt go away. the happiness and cheer that everyone has during this year is always something to look forward too. you know, i think this is the 2nd year that ive missed simbang gabi. =/ i think that’s one of my favorite masses of the year! its just a time to get a glimpse of a traditional filipino christmas. i hear all the old folks say that nothing beats a christmas in the phillippines and i feel that simbang gabi mass is just a little token of that brought here to america. i hope that one day i can go there to experience this holiday…it would be an experience to remember im sure. =]
Back in Long beach once again!!! its so nice to be back but yet, it was actually kinda sad to leave home this time. this was actually the first time that i wanted to go home and was sad to leave. usually i somewhat hate going back and cant wait to be back in lb. but being with family was a good thing. i missed it. and not just the home cooked meals, but everything. the family love, closeness, security….everything. we didnt even do that much this break but just being together….was….NICE. i shouldnt take these moments for-granted. because you never know when these moments are gonna end.
FINE! i give in. =\
so recently, ive been hearing a lot about this tumblr business… and honestly, at first i didnt see the point? but when i did check out ppl’s tumblrs, it drew me in. this blog is something different for everyone. for some, its just a way to pass the time, for some its a way to vent, and for others its just a way to connect with people. and you know, i never knew that i blog could all that. so why not? i might as well give it a try. i dont know what it will become for me, but only time will tell. =]
PS: sorry in advance if i don’t post a lot! -_- i still have no clue how addicted ill become to this thing!!!
What better day than Thanksgiving to actually start a blog cuz now…i actually have something to blog about! ^_^ easy peasy lemon squeezy. so basically..i’m thankful for everything in my life. i have received everything that i could ever dream of and more. you know, most of the time i probably take everything that i have for-granted. i never truelly appreciate how good i have it. my parents provided me with not only material things, but with all the love in the world and all the discipline and tough love that i hated, but NEEDED. i am who i am because of them. im thankful that i have a sister to look after me and a little brother to annoy the hell out of me. im thankful that those i am near too consider me as a friend and accept me for who i am. im thankful that i can literally sit here on this couch and say with the utmost certainty that there is nothing missing in my life. i sit and think about how much God has given me, and i feel so blessed.
Lord, THANK YOU. i dont deserve any of this, but yet here it is. Amen.
