what are you so freakin' busy with?

I could be employed right now but I went back to school to be a student.
I could be financially self-sufficient right now but I stayed dependent on my parent's monetary provision.
I could be the type of person who wouldn't care if time passed but I chose to be the person who feels guilty when time passes and I haven't done anything productive.
I could be sleeping well more often than now but I chose sleepless nights to study for an exam that I wouldn't pass with outstanding marks anyway.
I could be reading tons and tons of novels I have been wishing to read but I chose to be buried in books on Human Anatomy, Surgery and even Parasitology.
I could have more free time than now but I chose this life-consuming career path just so I could earn an 'MD' after my name.

I could be in a community as a Public Health Officer but I chose the path to becoming a Doctor for the community.

In the end, I feel I have been prepared for this. Not just by my friends, mentors and my family... but by God's will. Let this be done.

07 January 2010


I know that my mind hasn't still settled that it's already 2010.
Just this morning, as I was writing the date on a piece of paper, I ended up writing:

January 7, 2009

And that didn't happen once, I still ended up with 2009 when I wrote the date again in the afternoon.
Major hangover.

When the countdown was over -- the time that marked the line between 2009 and 2010 -- I was sitting on the couch in my grandparents' house watching the people on TV do the countdown.
While the TV was filled with people cheering and clapping, I looked around me and I saw people were lying down: snoring, sleeping soundly even if the noise of the fireworks outside were filling our ears.
See the contrast of the scene where I was and what was happening on television?

Where's the excitement? Where's the drama? Where's the confetti? The cheers? The overflowing drinks? And most importantly, where's my New Year's kiss?

Though they say that 'what you do on the first day of the New Year will be what you'll be doing for the rest of the year', I drank with my brother a bottle of tequila after the countdown, :P I don't believe this crap [yehrayt! I actually planned to study 5 mins before New Year's Day until 30 minutes after 12 midnight to ensure good study habits 'til the end of the year, but I didn't end up doing that -- *ding* maybe that's why my study habits hasn't still improved]. Hahaha!

01 January 2010



I'm currently sitting in a cottage by the beach with my parents and siblings.
A very impulsive decision: we're taking the long way home to Baguio.
We were supposed to arrive home this evening but Papi suggested that we take the scenic route home -- meaning longer hours of driving. Along the way, we had a lot of stop-overs that we have to spend the night in this resort before continuing our trip home tomorrow.

I'm just happy I'm with them this day.
I hope you're having fun too! :)
