I Will Stay The Same, But The World May Not

January 2, 2013


Hello, 2013. I am so ready for you.


Hello, Hello

January 1, 2013

Today is the first day of the year.

I wasn’t really looking forward to saying goodbye to 2012. For one, it has been an amazing year for me. It may be one of the best years I’ve had in my 28 years of colorful existence.

I don’t know what 2013 has in store. I don’t know if it’s going to be a good year, or if this will be a let down. I do hope that, even if it won’t be as great as 2012, it will still be a year that celebrates what life and the world should be about.

I have many things planned for 2013, big ones, actually.

I’m not a person who believes in new year’s resolutions. I’m more of the goal-setting type. This is why I don’t resolve to be anything or do anything this year. What I have is a set of goals that I pray I would meet before the year ends.

As a look back, I made a couple of goals last year that I was not able to meet. However, the more important ones I set were achieved, thanks to God.

For this year, I am going to set new goals and plans, higher and bigger ones. I hope and pray God guides me in making the right decisions, so I can meet the things I plan to meet.

I don’t really know what to ask for from God this year. I haven’t asked him for something big, lately, and I plan to keep it that way. All I really want for myself is to be healthy. All I pray for is that God will keep me away from any sickness. I will not ask for money, a great career, a happy life, a nice house, a car, etc.

All I need is health. As long as I’m healthy, I know that God will help me in reaching for greater things. Money and career is something that I have to work on, not something I ask from God. If he makes me healthy, I can work, have a career and make money. A happy life really depends on how I see things, also not something I also not something to ask from God.

So, Lord, please grant my only prayer of being healthy all the time. Please keep me away from sickness, of any form. Please help me keep away from the massive headaches that have been attacking me all the time. Please hold me in your arms, so that no harm will come my way. That’s the only thing I want for myself. For my family and loved ones, all I ask is to give them the things that make them happy, even if those things are at my expense.

Hello, 2013. For now, i really have no idea just what you’re up to. However, if you’re up to some mischief, let me in on it, and let’s be mischievous together.


Wednesday Hustle

February 10, 2010

For today, I am going to give my poetry project a rest. I have to conserve my energy for tomorrow. Once again. tomorrow is Thursday Poets’ Rally. I still haven’t written a poem for tomorrow’s rally, though. I don’t want to post an old one. I want to write something new, and then post it for tomorrow’s rally.

I gave two of my poems to a friend, so he can create a tune for them. He told me this morning, he was already done. But he won’t present it to me until he brings a guitar. I’m pretty much excited to hear what he came up with. Hopefully, it will be something tasteful. 🙂

Also, Valentine’s Day is approaching. This is my second favorite holiday, with New Year as my number one. I’m planning to just have a quiet dinner at home with my mom. My boyfriend is probably going to join us for dinner if he likes the food. He always prefers eating at their house, except when I have something yummy at home. 🙂

I’m also hoping I’d get some good news before the day ends. I’m not sure if I still deserve it. I;ve been having a lot of good things lately. Another one may be too much to ask for, but I’m still hoping for it. My blogging friends, I’ll meet with you all tomorrow online. Let’s enjoy reading more poetry, discovering more talent, and meeting more friends. 😀



January 1, 2010

January 1. Everything starts today. Another year, another decade, another chance at making a difference. I have a new them for my blog. I hope that, as readers, you will like it, and you will still continue reading my blog.

These are a few of the things that I will do for this year:

1. Write a blog entry everyday. I will make sure that every blog I write will be worth the time you spend on reading it.

2. Travel. When I travel, even to already familiar places, I always have something to write about when I return. I always have pictures to share.

3. Learn something new. I tried learning to read the tarot last year, but I found it too complicated, so I stopped. I think I might go back to learning it again. If not, I’ll probably find something else to learn this year.

4. Everyday, I will try to look for one thing that I should thank God for. It could be really small things that happen or entirely grand ones that do not happen to just anyone.

5. I will try my hardest not to repeat my mistakes last year.

This blog will be the witness to everything else that I see, encounter and deal with. Happy New Year, friends!!!!


Last Hurrah

December 31, 2009

I am welcoming the new year tonight. I am excited for so many new things that, I am sure, 2010 will bring. As for this blog, since we are now saying goodbye to Christmas and to 2009, I will also change my theme. Goodbye Vermilion Christmas. I’ll be looking for a new them to use for my blog. I hope I find something that I can use for the whole year through.

My neighbors are outside having a little party. I’ll be joining them in a while. I won’t be blogging until tomorrow. Once gaina, Happy New Year. May we all have peace and happiness all year round. 🙂


Sick and Busy

December 30, 2009

I am busy preparing things for tomorrow. New Yera has always been my favorite holiday. I love it, even more than I love Christmas. Yes, Christmas means a lot to my religion because it is the day that the Lord was born. It is the day that the One who will save everybody was born into this wretched little world. But New Year for me brought in hope.

For me, the start of a new year brings in a new wave of hope- hope that the next year will be so much better, hope that everything else will be okay, hope that all the pain and hurt will heal in the coming of the new year. I am not sure how other people look at it, but that’s how I define and celebrate the New Year.

A decade has passed since we all celebrate the dawn of the new millennium. Back then, we all thought that the end of the world was near. Yeas, while I am not denying that our world can end anytime, I will not also take it away fromt he people who want to live their lives as fully and as joyously as they can.

To everyone else, Happy New Year!!!



December 27, 2009

Five more days and we’ll finally say goodbye to year 2009. I can’t say I’m too excited. 2009 has been such a blessed and fruitful year for me. I have had so much good things happen this year. I guess maybe I feel like the year went by without me noticing. But as much as I want to stay in 2009 forever, I have to be brave and move on. I can only hope that the next year will be just as good.

As the year comes to an end, I also want to make sure that I haven’t forgotten to say my thanks to GOD, who has given me all the blessings this year.I will never be where I am now without Him. I also want to make sure that for 2010, I will be a better person. I will work hard to be who I am meant to be. I will love twice as deep, laugh twice as hard, sing twice as loud, dance twice as much, and live twice as well.

To all my friends and family, may you all be blessed and happy all throughout your lives. May you always have peace and love in your hearts. et us all live life the way we were meant to do so. I love you all, and God bless!!!!
