HAPPY 2009!

Its a new year! And for the nth time, I will start the year by blogging... from work! Since I have nothing new to write at the moment I will repost my 2008 meme from my multiply.

- go to another country to present a paper
- do a Talastasan (a lecture series of the college)

Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
- I don't remember making resolutions for 2008. Pero kun meron man, pare-pareho lang naman yun at pare-pareho din lang hindi ko nagagawa nang buong taon.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
- Si ate ann, si elle na barkdada ko nung HS. Parehong di ko pa nakikita. (edit: nakita ko na si elle, pareho lang kami ngayon ng tiyan! kakaloka!)

Did anyone close to you die?
- Marami sa probinsya, mga malalayong kamag-anak daw. Papa din ni paeng =(

What countries did you visit?

- Disiplina. Baby ria or baby paeng.

What date(s) from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
- April 18, 2008. Pakikipag-isang dibdib.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
- Magpakasal? Hahaha.
- Magpresent sa isang international conference in Japanese. Poster presentation lang naman ito at may 3 pa akong kasama. Pero achievement pa rin.

What was your biggest failure?
- Yung mga projects na hindi naumpisahan.

Did you suffer illness or injury?
- Madalas lang magkasipon at ubo.

What was the best thing you bought?
- Bra (eto talaga, hehehe)

Whose behavior merited celebration?

Compared to this time last year, are you:
happier or sadder?
-Happier.

thinner or fatter?
- Fatter

richer or poorer?
- Richer (wehehehe!)

What do you wish you'd done more?
- Travel sana. Kahit sa malalapit na lugar lang. Maraming plano kaso halos walang napuntahan =(

- Magpuyat, para makapagbasa

What do you wish you'd done less of?

- Katams.

How did you spend Christmas?
- Sa tatlong bahay. Kapagod, pero sulit.

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

- Nakita ko naman lahat ng gusto kong makita this year :) Pero nakakamiss ang family ko sa Japan.

Who was the best new person you met?
- Lawrence Reid. Linguists rock!

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008.
- Pag may itinanim, may aanihin.
- Pag maganda yung itinanim mo, maganda rin yung aanihin mo.
- Hindi dapat ma-haggard sa mga bagay-bagay, kasi may mga tutulong sa iyo para matupad iyon. Pero minsan, kailangang mo ding hayaan magwork yung iba sa pace nila at maganda din ang kalalabasan nito. Weird no?
- Kung gusto mo maganda ang maging labas ng plano mo, humingi ka ng advise sa mga tao, pero ikaw din mismo dapat at gumalaw para dito.
- Hindi lahat ng tao nakikinig sa sinasabi mo so piliin mo lang kung kanino mo sasayangin ang laway mo. hehehe.

Did you fall in love in 2008?
- Over and over again.

If yes, with who?
- kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
Then I found
A very special love in you
It's a feeling
That's so totally new
Over and over
It's burning inside
And I found
A very special love in you
And it almost breaks me
In two
Squeezing me tighter
But I'm never gonna let go
- A Very Special love

It is all about love talaga last 2008!
