Ahh...truth is, nowhere is as beautiful as anywhere where you're with people you love. It's as simple as that. :)
Like most year-ends and January ones, I try to stop and be quiet and think about things, bigger realizations and all that. This year I didn't have big realizations; I must've overthought things the past few years. I was searching my brain for big lessons, the morale of the year, but nothing big came up. It's not that I didn't learn anything (and there are quite a few memorable experiences to take note of, I must say), but maybe it's just...I think last year I promised myself to just go with the flow. To try new things but not pressure myself into them if they don't feel right. To meet new people and be friends with them but not expect anything in return. And the outcome of that is...satisfaction. And gratitude, nonetheless. Maybe that's it, I didn't have so much expectations from 2011, just lived it day by day and fluidly at that and I came out of it calm, relatively well rested and happy. There were ups, definitely, like those trips I made with friends and the manfriend, and the surf trips, oh the surf trips, and friends getting engaged! There were downs as well but this year I think I managed not to be too rash with my decisions like my previous self would have. But anyway, thank you for being part of my 2011, I hope to see more of you in the coming years.
The last few days of the year were awesome and I thank the universe, the sun, sand, water, the earth. I got to have dinner with perchance and Irene and it is such a comfort talking to people who knew me since high school. Fuzzy lovely blankets in human form that's what they are. When I'm with them I feel like...this might sound weird, but, in highschool there were something about the comfort of rainy nights in front of the tv, Dawson's Creek on, me wrapped in my favorite blanket and sipping on hot cocoa. I hope you get what I mean. :p
Then paperdull randomly decided to visit me in La Union and so I took her to the beach where we met up with my other friends and I finally got to surf again (oh man I wish we could all go surfing together!) and it was lovely! It was this spot with a river that opens out to the sea and I saw a teepee looking thing! At the end of the session I saw light at the end of the horizon, literally. And then we went to another beach and ate and watched the sky turn pink then orange then dark blue.
So, 2012, you and I will be bestfriends. Ok? :) Here's to more fun times, adventures, romances, good food, travel, more money and world peace in 2012!
