the day after

today was great but i don't really feel like blogging about it. but thank you for the great day, for letting me do the silly embarrassing things that make life real.

and i guess jc1 officially ended yesterday for me. what a year; i'm not going to describe it because there aren't enough words to capture all 287 days. well, i obviously have not achieved any of my new year resolutions, and damn i can't believe i was so hopeful about 2010. not that i'm disappointed, but just surprised at how different it turned out from my expectations.

i am now blacker, heavier, lazier, and bored. unfortunately i've yet to grow taller, but some things just never change. and i'm not actually bored per se, just lacking something/someone(?) that i will wake up for everyday.

still, there's a lot more to be grateful for. you 4 especially; you know who you are :) and the class, even though sometimes its almost as if you all study too much and eat too little. and the frisbee team, from the hilarious seniors to the awesome batchmates.

sure, there were some depressing times this year, but i can't imagine it any other way.

in the end, there's no point regretting or wanting to change things. i'm just glad whatever happened happened. the good has to come with the bad, and i'd take the bad if it lets me have the good too. that sounds so cliched, especially if you consider all those quotes about love and not being sad it ended but being glad that it happened etc etc. oh, there goes that closet romantic in me again. the keyboard makes it way too easy to ramble on.

so tata, i shall strive to make best use of this brief respite otherwise known as holidays.

ps. thank you jkrowling for sharing such an amazing world with us. i may not agree with what you did with some of the characters, but hey there's fanfic for that, and i don't think my life would have been complete without ever having read about hogwarts potion masters.

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."
-Paulo Coelho
