I’m Still Here

 7 Quick Takes of My Whereabouts for the Past Month(s)

Hi! I’m back! Well, not that I formally mentioned that I am going to hide under a hole somewhere or that I will be on “hiatus” like what everyone calls it nowadays, but yes, I am back. takes a deep breath, inhale, exhale

Yeah.. Uhm.. If you’re wondering where on earth I have been then I’ll mention it and yes, I do assume that you are wondering and yes again to that being a strong assumption but please, do humor me, thank you. big smile Where was I? Ah, yes, assuming that you are indeed interested to know where I was or what I was up to here it is, in 7 quick takes:

One. I took a much needed vacation, by that I mean I went home to the Philippines because it is possible and because I NEED it! It’s longer than it’s supposed to be but considering I didn’t take a vacation the year before, then it’s quite short yet worth it.

Two. Of course being on vacation, I met my old college friends. How amazing it is that despite of the distance we’re still us, the same person some 15 years back only now we are older. It really solidifies my belief in the saying: Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold. They are gold alright, white gold.

Three. I went out of town with my family minus my youngest brother since he’s out at sea. There’s something utterly depressing about that word but yes, my youngest brother is currently out at sea, somewhere far away. Last I heard he’s in Russia, I am so green with envy.

Five. I spent some time with my brother, unfortunately we weren’t able to eat everything that I want to eat because curse his fatty liver. sigh We did have some fun though and I hope sooner, we can do it again.

Six. I bonded with my girl cousin, a first after a very long time, after being traumatized that is, yeah I know, I am a not a moth. It was fun, though I have to admit the age gap was a great factor to my being comfortable. Kekeke.

Seven. Lastly, I got sick. Yup, because it’s about right that before I go home and the moment I come back I need to get sick. I don’t know why and I doubt there’s any scientific explanation but it was necessary it seems, oh well.

Yup, that’s about it, nothing too interesting but the Hong Kong trip I know but I can’t change anything anymore. Maybe next year, next year shall and will be better. Since I borrowed the title, might as well add the song. That’s right, I Am Still Here.

      Hiiii!!! Thank you!! Sorry it took me so long to reply, I had a series of unfortunate events – unfortunately. The “fangirling” part of my vacation will be posted soon enough, I would like to share the experience. I hope that you’re well and it’s funny that I am not feeling that well today too.. Cursed desert weather.
