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!

My memory is too short to remember, I only know that 2009 was one of my better years, and |I am hoping that 2010 is going to be even better.

Hope yours will be the same!

Thanks for leaving a thought on my site, great hearing from you. I agree on Eliza's legs...

Have a great one and take care.

Believe it or not my interest in makeup started around the same time as yours did!! Oh and my new years wasn't all the eventful either. It wasn't bad or anything just nothing exciting ever happened. But if you wanted a New Years kiss then how bout one from me. Will that make up for it? he he xox
