kinda late...but better than never to have a new year post here....
looking back (recollecting what's has been behind but not necessarily mean dwelling on the past misfortunes and stumbles) i had fun in 2004. for one, the opening of last year ushered a rather good start for me. i was accepted in a not so financially rewarding job but fulfilling one (that was what i was thinking before...i dont know for now :)) and then, i had too much fun and a lot of excitement when i knew people from outside my scope which includes my officemates and the people i knew along the way (clients i should say). added to that was having to enroll in the masters program and just lately (november to be exact) was nursing school. in the latter part though, i could say i enjoyed a lot until this very minute.
now, before i start to contemplate of what i will be in 2005, id like to chronicle 2004. what has become of me? what are the changes that occured? what were the things that shaped me along the way? how was i able to cope? how did it affected my plans? and all other pressing questions i need to assess myself.
i could not really say that im a changed individual. yes, there were changes but i am still basically me. the previous country side boy that conquered the chaotic world of the city. perhaps, it would be premature to say that i have changed a bit but the thing is, i change for good and not for something people would notice that i leaned towards the evil side. kidding aside, i have been a naughty one when it comes to dealing with people. i learned a lot of things actually. from dealing with the clients, psychologizing them, analyzing their thoughts and words and actions to the minutest detail of having to deal with my coworkers and my boss. the exact term would be MATURITY. yes, ive matured. ive growned. ive outlived my past apprehensions and has become a renewed person physically, emotionally, and dare i say financially? no not this time cos i still owe geline some extra pounds.
talking about being independent, im halfway i guess. i still live with my brother for free (well, except for the cable fee which i promised to pay and only a measly 250 bucks). food, water, electricity, i dont mind them for the moment. il think about it the moment they step out of the country maybe end of this year. for now, il enjoy what's being offered by my accommodating brother.
the year that passed also opened new doors for me. nursing school was not an option before but through the pressing encouragement of the people around me i finally settled to enrolled. at my own expense. whew...financially draining and nerve wracking though. lately though, im beginning to enjoy my studies and the girls (corrupting minors you would say...)
i dont know until when i will be going to and fro from the school but ive vowed to myself that il do better so that i could graduate on time. occasionally, im having a good time just beside the strip of the school for a bottle of beers or two with my classmates. the school? it's not that strict actually. sometimes, i find time
wait. i gotta go.
