I’ll never get tired of staring at this photo.
Oh how I wish I could still hold you like this, hug you so tight while we talk about sports, business, politics, even showbiz or simply how my day was. I wish I could share with you where I am and what I’m up to now.
But I know you’re watching over us and the Mansion. And yes, you could even hug me everywhere I go, we go.
I just miss you, Grampop.
And I will always love you even after a decade, even after many years.
Please whisper to the Big Guy up there to send the Man that you both have chosen for me ASAP. :)
They will be waiting for you when you
Start doing things you love
Follow the Rules to be happy
Social media can make you depressed. Constantly looking what your friends are doing takes a toll on your mind and emotions by creating an anxiety of missing out. Try to tone it down for a week or two — you will be able to live your life worry-free. When you stop caring about the actions of others, you will be able to focus on yourself and your own happiness.
Follow the Rules to be happy
(In less than) 12 hours before 2012 ends, let me share with you 12 reasons why this year has been one of the most amazing and beyond-blessed year of my life.
My unplanned trip to Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan.
This church has a special place in my family’s heart and my trip last January was just extra special since it’s like He called me after I got wounded badly. So I whispered my wishes and some came true. :)
And this was my much needed break with good friends in College..
I passed the Registered Marketing professional Exams!
Oathtaking of Registered Marketing Professional Passers
Thankful that I took it with my Crazy Good Friends, B1 and B2, Abi and Deb. :)
My Thursday Caring Group
I wouldn’t be strong and confident without them and their prayers, they helped me grow spiritually as they strengthen my faith when I have decided to FINALLY move forward.
Hello to my new company! :)
God answers our prayers when we needed it most.
Celebrated my first month in the Company in Cebu!
“Always surround yourself with Smart People.”
Giving Back for my 24th
I’ve always wanted to do this, Thanks to my friends, CG and family for making this possible.
Also, the highlight of this month..
“Your presence is already a blessing to us.” — Audee
My bestfriend surprised me by introducing me to my Ultimate Dream Man, Audee Villaraza.
My unexpected regularization at work!
Something I didn’t expect since I was busy enjoying what I do. :)
Ainica fulfilled her long-time promise.
S3 Baby, my Pluto!!! :)
My first Trade Show
My most productive two days in 2012, Tiring yet very fulfilling. :)
Gem is with us.
The fact that this more than a decade friendship with Gem is still standing strong and ALIVE. :)
Hello Tin, I love u too. ;)
For this month, I’ve been waiting for the highlight. It has been crazy and dramatic, sad and happy, scary and lazy month. This month made me doubt myself and all the things I’ve done this year and all the decisions I’ve made as well. It tested my heart and my ability to Love, Forgive and Accept. For the past week, I didn’t like myself and all the situations I was into. But I never forgot to pray and to hold on and close my eyes and ears and lift up to Him everything.
Last night was the answer, Thanks to my Bestfriend, Kristine Marie Joy for taking up Psych and being spiritual strong as well as she explained and helped me understand the things that I do not get now.
I AM AMAZING. (She saved it in my phone’s reminder from Dec 25 until forever!) I did a good job this year. I just have to believe in this rather than to be pulled down by frustrations.
Thankful, Grateful and Beyond-blessed for 2012 as I was able to share it with the people I love most.
Definitely, soared high like a dragon with my (fellow) Angels this year. Lessons learned as well. Now it’s time to trust the Man Above more and look forward to the goodness of uncertainties and the fulfillment of the dreams He has planted in my heart.
SURPRISE ME, 2013.
I remember how my friends, Pau, Armie, Mon and I skipped our Bio Finals exams to rush to Araneta to fall in the snake-line of its Ticket Booth. We were assigned to different lines just to make sure we’ll have Tickets then we squeezed in our sexy bodies inside the Jam-Packed Coliseum.
But it’s all worth it. UST Men’s Basketball Team won the Championship after 10 years. And now, we’re back in the Finals Baby!
RELIVE ‘06. :)
Lord, be the Cupid who will help me fall in love with all the blessings I have now so I can hold them carefully.
I’ve been thinking of what to give you or dedicate to you on this day of your birthday. (September 3, right? :p ) I don’t know how to make the heart of a Virgo melt. But I’m sure one lucky Cancerian guy has done an amazing job in conquering it. So here’s one serious letter for you from a not-so-serious me.
Here you go..
We’ve been friends since you were still super payat while I was still kinda payat back in College.
Thanks to our beloved, TJMA.
Eventually, we became sisters.
And many times in our Senior year, we worked for more hours in this beloved org than in our Academics. And that’s an undeniable fact.
Also, you help me fulfill my dream of becoming a host by always dragging me in your projects and asking me to be an instant-host most of the time. Thank you for taking advantage of that dream of mine.
Along with all these responsibilities as an officers are our many nights just “outside” the campus or if we have more than enough or there’s a bigger celebration, we visit our Tomas Mansion.
And even after College, we still explore the world together along with our other labs.
Ohhhkaaay.. so what’s my point?
You were bad and careless before. Hehe. But, seriously, I’m proud to say that I’ve seen you grow, I’ve witnessed how you turn out to be a little mature now. I know how you take care of the people closest to your heart and I know how you prioritize valuable things in your life now. And I’m very proud of you for everything you have accomplished, for all the quotas that you have targeted, for every souvenir you have gotten yourself and us from the different parts of Europe, especially that ring. Ayiiieee. :)
And I will always be thankful for having you, A, my sister and my weekend-boyfriend when we’re both not busy..oopss.. make that.. when we both have moolah.
You’re that kind of friend who even when we do not communicate for weeks, even when we have misunderstandings during those weeks.. but when we talk, it’s like we were never apart. I look forward to more late-nights -until-wee-hours-in-the-morning conversations in your car in front of our house whenever we came from a gimik.
There’s nothing more I could wish for you but just for you to have a bigger and stronger heart to face every surprises as well as challenges that life may give you.
Your Ks will always be with you. And I’m excited to ride a plane with you two, someday. SOMEDAY. :)
Soooo… Alexandria Roque, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY NEW YEAR! *Wag na muna Valentines, wala pa ko e.*
