This is another “notebook” post, I suppose. Only that it’s more important and different. I’m pretty much sure I already mentioned this twice (first time here, the next one here) that I have this habit of buying notebooks without having anything in mind what to use them for. I know it’s kinda weird, but other girls have this attitude towards shopping and make-up (which I clearly don’t have) and I’m stuck with this notebook addiction.
It’s the last day of 2013 and here I am about to start the drama!!! LOL, I kid. I think almost everyone try to evaluate the kind of life they lived before the year ends. As for me, I’ll give you a rundown of my accomplishments, frustrations and what I gained this 2013. I narrowed all lists down to 13 since it’s the year 2013 and to minimize the lists, otherwise you may be reading a very lengthy blog post.
Note: I have to warn you, this post is quite long and emotional. But if you’re willing to read up until the last word, I pray that you be blessed as well. 🙂
April 2013 was the month I was supposed to finally bid a chapter in my life goodbye. It was supposed to be the month to march up the stage and finally hand my parents my diploma after four painstaking years of college. It was supposed to be the month when finally, after 16 years of going to school, I will reap the fruits of my labor and move on with my life. But on April 2013, I wasn’t able to graduate. And the rest, they say, is history.
I turned 21 yesterday – not that the whole world needs to know or the whole country needs to celebrate about it – but I did.
I didn’t keep my hopes up too high because I didn’t want to cause anyone any hassle. And I only had one birthday wish in mind that I thought would make me really, really happy on the day of my birthday. I came to school praying and hoping that it the Lord would grant it. I was surprised instead and felt so special with all the messages those who are important to my life have given me. It turned out that my friends were sneaking things behind my back. Long, short, serious, funny – whatever they were – they made me teary-eyed. This is actually the first time I experienced something like this.
