It had been 9 months since I last visited this blog. So many things happened in that span of time. I met a lot of people and made relationships. I had a few friends come and go. I lost count of how many times my priorities changed. I don’t have all night, however, to reminisce and recall every single moment just so I have something to write here. I’d like to take every moment as a new beginning. This moment is a blank space for me to fill with whatever good things I can find.
I only took two modules this term and to my delight, I won’t have any exams. I have, however, quite a number of assignments and projects to finish. One is a mobile movie and I have to come up with a storyboard and a script plus a short essay about the concepts I’ll be using due next week. For my other module, I ended up being the group leader for a presentation to show this March. My team and I will start working on that the week after next week.
Yes! It’s the new year. It has finally reached the depths of my heart and mind that 2017 is officially over. That took quite some time, I know. Only more than half a month delayed. I have reasons that I won’t be discussing here. Instead, I’ll be sharing my goals and things I look forward to this year.
I don’t speak Spanish. I understand some words and phrases because I’m Filipino but I’m not fluent at all so don’t be fooled by the title of this post. I really just wanted to use the phrase “de calibre” with December. I don’t think it has anything to do with what I’m gonna share here today, though. That’s just totally random.
I realised a rather harsh truth today. I don’t really have friends. I mean, I do have two best friends but they’re both in different countries. We get to see each other like once or twice a year. Their names are Mane and Marge. We video call or chat sometimes but, and this is another realisation, both of them are taken, as in I’m competing with their significant others for their attention. I also have two people on my Skype, other than my family. They’re Kim and Laura. They’re people I met from ChristianChat. But they’re also far, far away. So, no I don’t really have a friend that I can go out or hang out with everyday, like go shopping or have a pedicure with.
