Merry Christmas..


Hello everyone…well it's Christmas today, but it really doesn't feel all festive at all…doesn't really feel like Christmas…only a lonely feeling since I'm alone in the apartment right now. Yesterday I went out with friends and we were gonna grab a movie, but I wasn't feeling it, and neither were the people that I was with, so we juss ended up picking up random movies and going back home and watching them…we also bought food to cook…food that we missed from home and that we wanted to "recreate" juss for today…we had chili hot dogs, pancakes, grape cider, and we were gonna have Mac and Cheese but it ended up juss being three of us, and so wee had enough food already…yeah, I really miss pancakes (from home, not "hotcakes" or whatever they call them here) and I really really miss waffles…*laughs* foods that you never really think of missing until you don't have them anymore…

Well, my cousin's parents came over to the Philippines for Eddie's capping and pining ceremony…and there have been here for a month, but we couldn't really hang out with them since it was our exams before the break, and we were really busy and stuff…so on the 21st we ended up going to Manila to hang out with them…We went to the Mall of Asia a lot…and then Market! Market!...which is still in Manila…we went to watch Polar Express in the IMAX…me and Eddie didn't want to see that one…because we didn't really like that movie in the first place…but there was no good movies out that were showing in IMAX…Beowulf was showing, but his parents had seen it already, and so they didn't want to see it…I'm wasn't too hot on seeing it, but I did hear that it was animated…and I like animated movies and stuff…they did a lot of last minute shopping…and me and Eddie juss tagged along…

We dropped his parents off at the airport on Sunday…on the 23rd, because that was when they were going to return home…and I was fighting tears, because I wished that I was going with them, so did Eddie, he hasn't been home in such a long time and we both want to be going home…but we fighters and we watched his parents walk to the gate while we were left behind. Our turn will come someday…

We ended going back to AUP straight after that…and I was so exhaustedly tired…my goodness…traveling anywhere here in the Philippines is so tiring…! Anyways, when we got to AUP…I ended up staying at Eddie and Andy's place until late, and we even made a last minute video…my debut on theadoboboys' site! *laughs* so if you want, go ahead and check it out…it was last minute and I had NO IDEA that I was even gonna be on camera…didn't really know the words to the song, but oh well…it was fun and funny…to watch that is. *laughs* then I went home…then yeah, yesterday, that's when we went out to try to be a little bit festive for Christmas Eve…and today is Christmas…and what did I do?! Well, I woke up at 1:pm…and cleaned the house, wrote a lot of e-mails, and letters, and that's about it. Oh, I did talk to my family…well, everyone but my dad…he texted me that my mom was trying to call me though…I don't know if that counts though…but I called my brother early morning there…and then I called me sister, got her voicebox and she called me back…she is happy…but I can already feel the pull of the distance taking a toll on us. Gosh, I miss my sister and brother a lot…

My roomies are in Singapore, since their parents moved to Africa…they did go to Thailand for awhile, and they met up with their brother, and then went to their Auntie's house in Singapore…so they are there…I miss them a lot. They left on the 13th of this month…so they had an early start on their vacation…but it was funny because they left at 2:30pm on Thursday…and at 2:30 on that Thursday, I had an exam in my reading and speech class…and my exam was that I had to deliver a speech! And so I was up front delivering a speech and fighting tears at the same time! I had juss said good-bye to them, and we are all crying and tearing and everything…and then I had to go to class and do a speech, and I have to say that I did pretty good considering the fact that my speech had to be and lively speech. My teacher even came up to me after class and said that I was a gifted speaker…so that was pretty cool…my eyes were swimming though, that was the funny part…but I survived the day…I had class until 7:pm that day…and it was a LONG day…

At first I thought that it would be a problem that I was alone in the house, because I don't like being alone and stuff…but I'm okay now…I like living alone…it's kinda lonely though, because everyone has gone home and is having parties for this vacation, and I'm here in school…not technically AT school…but I'm "home" and I don't know if I can really call this home because home is where the heart is…and my heart is sure not here at all! *laughs* but I'm cool with staying here and stuff…not cool cool…but okay. There, I don't even know what I'm saying! *laughs*

Well, I better go now…but MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! And HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!
