My Christmas was kinda Unsual this Year

I was asking what I could do during my Christmas vacation in my previous blog. Usually, I always stay at home, watching TV, and surfing the net. Sometimes, I read books (school books).

But this year's Christmas vacation has been unusual. Two days before Christmas, I went out with my three close college friends. Two of them are also working now so less time of being together, having chit-chats and all. One of my friends is working somewhere in Makati. She is not working as a call center agent but her shift is during night time. And, would you imagine she is the only one working during that shift? When she told us about this, I laughed really hard. She has no office mates around in their floor. In short, she has no one to talk to. When she goes home from work, no one is in their boarding house because her friends are working during daytime. In other words, she has no SOCIAL LIFE when she started working during night time.

I decided to ask her out with our other friends before I get busy again with my work and studies. My closest friend gave a treat. We ate pizza. Yes, pizza, my favorite. Since there were a lot of people eating there, we decided to move and transfer to Starbucks to have a nicer environment. We really had a great time exchanging stories. I really missed those moments I had with them during our college days. Kumbaga sa anti-virus, na-update na ang mga database namin.

On Christmas eve, we went to my Tita's house which is ten houses away from our home. We had a great kwentuhan. And, we had fun because the kids there were still playing that time. The next day, we attended the mass with the kids. At long last, I attended the mass again. I cannot remember the last time I went to church to attend the eucharist.

The day after Christmas, my family and my mother's siblings went to their Tita's house in Novaliches. The place was quite far from our place. It is near SM Fairview. We took the longer route, I think. When we took the Commonwealth--North Ave-EDSA route, it took us shorter time to arrive home. It was my first time to visit them. We just brought some food and we ate lunch there. My mother and her siblings visit them every Christmas. I, being some sort of anti-social, did not go with them. Just to make a difference, I tried to come with them. I had fun naman except the route which really bored me a lot.

And to top it all off, since I am now a part of the labor force, I am obliged to give aguinaldo to my inaanak and to the elders. I had three inaanak. The two of them are close to me. I already brought them clothes before Christmas but still I gave them aguinaldo. This is actually the first time I gave aguinaldo. I really have no choice because of the social norms. Since it's Christmas, it's the time of giving. Sabi nga nila, it's better to give than to receive. Sabi ko naman, iba pa rin ang feeling pag ako ang tumatanggap kaysa ako ang nagbibigay. hehehe!

Reasons... and Reasons

I really missed blogging. I used blogging as my avenue or outlet for my emotions. But for the past few days, nothing really triggered me to write something about something.

Here are some reasons why I created my blogs before:
1. I am so happy. Something happened between me and my crush. Kilig moments. And the like.
2. I am so sad. Things fall apart. People come and go. Depressed. Lost in a competition.
3. I am so mad. Vengeance. Anger. Karma.

Basically, none of them happened in the past two months I think. That's why, I have nothing interesting to write.

Well, before the year ends, I will be making a year-ender. A sort of an evaluation of year 2009.

And, matatapos na ang 2009, loveless pa rin ako. :D

My Christmas Vacation

Well, wala pa talagang plano for my Christmas vacation. After this coming Saturday ko na lang poproblemahin iyon.

Naka-attend na ako ng isang Christmas party last week. Nakakatawa kasi first time kong nanalo sa isang raffle draw. Ako pa ang unang nabunot. Sobrang saya ko talaga. Bath towel ang nakuha ko, maganda naman ang tela. Tapos sa exchange gift naman, donuts ang nakuha ko. Mas appreciate ko siguro kung hindi nauubos yung nakuha kong regalo.

Bukas, may Christmas party na naman akong pupuntahan with my co-employees. Somewhere sa Cubao ata ang venue. Sobrang clueless ako dahil hindi ko alam kung saan yun. Tapos sa Thursday, isa na namang Christmas party na kasama na ang ibang staff. Maghohost pa ata ako noon kaya good luck sa akin. May konting presentation pa man din kaming dapat ihanda.

Sa Sabado naman, may lakad daw kami with college friends. I just hope matuloy ito. Treat kasi ng friend ko dahil birthday niya sa mismong Christmas day. hehe.

After that, wala na akong plano para sa 2-week vacation ko. Any suggestion? Gusto kong magkakulay naman ang bakasyon ko at hindi na lang basta magkulong dito sa bahay. I have no friends na pwede isama sa labas or any outing. Napakaloner ko kasi napakaKJ ng friends ko...

Any suggestion? :-)
