No Resolutions

2008 has always been my favorite year since way back in highschool because I wholeheartedly believe that 8 is my lucky number. I'm not Chinese ha but I just decided on the number 8 that hey it's going to be my favorite number. I associate it with the symbol of infinity - that in one's life there's no limit to the wonderful surprises, joys and love any person can get, it's infinitely possible. I used to say to myself that 2008 will be the best year for me and I used to say to my friends that I'm going to get married on my 28th year on August 8, 2008 (kasi ang daming 8!). Looks like though I'll have to move my deadline on the latter (say August 8, 2018). It's simply not going to happen soon. But still I do believe, eventhough this year has begun with sad news about the recent US recession threat, the pound sterling going down and Heath Ledger dying, 2008 is still going to be the best year for me. I can feel it!

I don't have New Year's resolutions because I simply suck at fulfilling them - I chuck them away even before starting doing one. What I do plan to do is keep up and probably improve the good qualities that I already have. Because that's easier than doing your best to concoct good traits from thin air (like realising resolutions for example). Oh yes, I do have a few good traits here and there. Yeah, I do! For one, many say that I'm a cheerful person. That I easily smile even if there's nothing to be happy about... oh no, that doesn't good, does it? A bit alarming actually. So erase that, I'll think of another good trait that I have under my belt. There's one or two, for sure...

On the other hand, I wish for a few things for myself this 2008. These are:
  1. Go home to Cebu. I miss my family, my Mom's cooking, my Dad's too safe and sure driving (in other words, mabagal) and I'm curious to see how grown up my sister is now.
  2. A reunion with VPALs. I really miss those pretty girls and gay. I hope we'll see each other this Christmas break and go out, drown in a bottle of Tequila like we're all still singles.
  3. A trip to Scotland! I'm thinking of visiting the picturesque Edinburgh castles.

Any one or two, or all of those wishes coming true will surely make this year the best.

And I really do hope this year will carry us more blessings and laughter... a safe labour and delivery for Claire... a pregnancy for Ria (well it's time!)... promotion for Harley - he truly deserves it because he's the best Base24 Programmer I know (and the only one I know :p)... good health for my family, friends and their families... more travels and career opportunities for my friends... and I hope for peace for those who live in war-stricken nations and have been living destititutely and being constantly terrorized for years. I truly hope for World Peace.
