Matapos akong ma-confine ng tatlong araw sa UP Infirmary isang linggo matapos ang pagpapakabayani sa Edsa’t Mendiola, akala ninyo’y mapapasama pa ninyo ako sa isa na namang pag-aalsa? Hah, ano kayo, sinusuwerte?
Making New Year’s resolution is not really my kind of thing, but I decided to make some promises I must fulfill this year. I’m not telling you what these promises are, though.
2001 was an exciting year for me. It was full of fun and angst, filled with experiences, and was a mixture of sucesses and failures — like failed relationships.
It was a year when I became more proud and felt rewarded after all my self-styled and little efforts to get involved and concerned. I was damn proud I was in Mendiola with hundreds of thousands of other Filipinos — mostly youth–when Joseph Estrada was forced to leave Malacanang.
Also in 2001, I’ve proven once more that dreams come true: Tinig.com,
It was also last year that I first experienced how it is to fly on a plane and watch the clouds from above. My first visit to Vigan and Cebu also took place in 2001 — and these trips were topped with great opportunities in my profession.
However, I think I did things in a extreme manner last year. As I got myself involved and busy on things concerning the world outside my little life, I did not think of leaving time and space for myself. And on concerns that allowed me to enjoy life, I enjoyed myself too much, without thinking of others. I should have improved my priorities last year.
Hopefully, I will again experience this year the fun and excitement and the fulfillment I had last year. This time, may I be able to really fix my priorities and run my life better than before.

Last night, I was about to finish Anne Rice’s “Vittorio the Vampire” — there’s only one chapter left for me to read — but I forgot it at the office. Sayang talaga.
By the way, please check out my recent article in Peyups.com column Tembtation. Entitled “Muling Pagtatagpo,” it starts this way:
“Dinalaw mo na naman ako kagabi. Hindi ko iyon inaasahan. Akala ko’y nilimot mo na ako. O kinalimutan na kita. Hindi pa pala. Sa muli nating pagkikita, napakalapit natin sa isa’t isa, at halos ay magkadikit ang ating mga katawan. Malinaw na malinaw kong natitigan ang maganda mong mukhang kaytagal kong kinabaliwan. O, kay igting ng pagnanasa kong mahagkan ang mapupula mong mga labi na lagi kong pinapangarap.” Read more here.
Got to go now, Peyups EB’s at 6pm and it’s quarter to five already.
