The year that was

The end of 2014 is just around the corner. I must admit, a lot of unexpected events took place this year. For one, I finally got this blog going. I was planning on doing that last 2013 but somehow I got carried away with life in general and never really had the time to take a breather long enough to get my thoughts down on paper. As I’ve promised myself, that system ends now. Never am I going to allow myself to be so busy again that I can’t take time to reflect on this journey called life.

When 2014 was starting out, never did I expect that I was going to travel to Cebu later in the year. Well, it happened. I spent an entire weekend there last September with a former classmate and, if all goes as planned, we’ll be going back early this 2015. As to why we went there, and why we’re going back, is going to be the subject of another piece which I have to hold off for now so as not to preempt our plans.

My mind is in total vacation mode right now that I can’t bring myself to write a coherent article that’s actually going to make sense. There are a lot of ideas playing in my mind, so much I want to put on paper, I’m not sure where to start. But I guess this is it for now. Christmas just ended, I’ll be hitting the mall tomorrow to buy some stuff for the New Year celebration, God only knows if I’ll have anytime to sit still and write anything….there goes my self-made promise of taking time out to smell the roses.

Well, I’ll get it done somehow. Till then, I wish anyone reading this an awesome New Year.

A year after

It’s been over a year since I created this blog. As usual, my life has taken a lot of unexpected twists and turns to the extent that I have been unable to take enough time to post anything. Well, that’s about to change – I’ve decided to take control of my life and not just go where the wind blows.

I just quit my job. The last 2 and a half months felt like a pressure cooker and I had to get out before I got overcooked. If there’s anything I’ve validated before I left it’s this reality about the world: we always have a choice. In the end, we have the final say of what we will and will not allow. People can only treat you the way you allow them to.

Nevertheless, my job hasn’t been that consuming that I haven’t had the chance to do any writing. Hell, if that were the case, I would have left way sooner with guns ablazing. Writing is my escape from the world and I’ll be darned if I’ll let anyone take that freedom away. Well, that’s it for now….will be posting some of the stuff I wrote in a while.    

 

New Beginnings

I’m back to planet earth after 6 months of hybernation. Someday I’ll bring myself to talk about where I’ve been in more detail. Right now I’m just glad to be back after my months of hybernation came to it’s dramatic end last October. Hopefully, I never have to go back to where I was….I know, I know! I’m not making any sense. Well, as my blog title indicates, anything goes…I’ve ventured on to this new project if, for no other reason, to set myself free from all the rules and regulations I’ve had to live by for the last how many months. So, here’s the first step towards my liberation.
