Post-Christmas, Pre-New Year

I’ve restrained myself from criticizing the weather because of what happened the last time I did it, but I think it really needs to be said: this has got to be the hottest Christmas holiday!

Anyway, today is the last working day for the year. Woo Boo hoo. I’m really looking forward to another long weekend because I am tired na from work. It’s especially tiring when you’re trying your damnedest to ignore your it’s-the-holidays-you-idiots!-mood while working at the same time. And especially when most of your friends are on vacation leave and you’re left to wander around Makati by your lonesome! I wish I would be with friends tonight. Pero iniwan niyo akong lahat! Hahaha! Kidding!

I have an early New Year’s resolution which came to me last Dec. 23 – next year, I will no longer give presents to my godchildren and relatives, I will just give them cash. While it’s true that I still love buying gifts and wrapping gifts, the past three Christmases I was always in cramming mode when it comes to buying stuffs and wrapping these up! Blame it on my habit of procrastinating (pwede namang ang New Year’s resolution ko ay wag ng mag-procrastinate, pero hindi na lang. I love procrastinating!). And yep, blame it on those ungrateful brats who couldn’t appreciate the effort, care and obsession I put into in selecting and wrapping their gifts. Aba, ma-effort kaya ang maghanap ng magandang regalo pero cheap!

It was a real crazy year – but that’s for another entry! I’m just not in the mood to file documents right now (another New Year’s resolution?) and I feel a bit lonely here so I just want to blog for a while.

(Which reminds me - I have not shared yet what happened to me last Friday! As if I need another proof that my crybaby days are back, I found myself crying while I was stuck in traffic! I don’t know which part of that sentence is the least surprising – the one about the horrendous traffic situation in Manila or the one about me crying for the most shallow of reasons.

So, anyway, here I was, stuck somewhere in the Pier area in Manila, with my car sandwiched amongst ginormous trucks, listening to the live broadcast of Gary V.’s concert in Eastwood and I was crying. The culprits? Reaching Out and Take Me Out Of The Dark. Kumusta naman yun?! Well, maybe it's my way of coping with paranoia because everytime I look behind, the headrest at the backseat seemed to contain a head! Scary!)
