Thank you, 2019! Cheers to 2020!

HAY, 2019! What a year you have been! It has surely been a roller-coaster of emotions but all the good definitely outweighed the crazy and the bad.

2019 was a year of uprooting for me.

I got uprooted from my work of almost three years as an associate and transferred to a totally new playing field – the judiciary. I got uprooted from my home of 5 years, and went back to living with my family in Batangas. I now drive (which I never imagined myself doing *ever* what with the convenience of Grab and Uber and sometimes my own personal driver for work); I just bought my own car (which wasn’t really part of the plan and which sounds superrrr crazy to me ‘coz I don’t drive nga and just thinking about the monthly installment is making me insane ). Things just kept happening, and blessings just kept on pouring, and there was nothing left to do but to just take it all in and give thanks.ย

It was good year of travel too. Traveled to Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. Not so much locally, though. Just the usual hour drive to Tagaytay with friends and family during some weekends.

Finally, despite all the *overwhelming* new things that’s happening in my life all through out the year, 2019 made me realize that I wouldn’t trade anything for my constants. My parents ~ Daddy and Mama ~ my siblings, Gil and Celine, Yna and the rest of the family, and my ultimate soul mate, Ed. They have been my constant source of happiness (and sakit sa ulo sometimes, but never mind that) and everything is just meaningless without them.

Thank you, 2019. You have been so good. Cheers to 2020! Praying for an equally, if not more, blessed new year!

LIFE UPDATE: I am playing catch up and I am tired!

It’s been a while, friends, and oh how I missed blogging! This post is just a quick update for y’all (and probably a quick motivation for me to read as well) because this month was nothing short of crazy! To say that it’s been hectic and intense is just a big understatement.

Some life update:

So as you know (or not), I have been living away from home since I started college. At first I thought I was just gonna be away for four years but then I pursued law school so that’s another four years of being away. I go home weekly, though, so I won’t get overly dramatic about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ After law school, I worked in the city *still* so that added another 3 years of being “independent”.

But fast forward to today, I have recently been appointed as court attorney in my home province so, YES, I am happy to update y’all that I just moved back home after almost 12 years of being away!!ย  12 years sounds so many haha but I’m not THAT old, I promise.

 

Hence ~considering all the chaos~ my lack of reading for this month.

At the beginning of October, I planned to join #romancetakeover at Instagram. But as per usual, I wasn’t able to finish the challenge, let alone one book. Gah. I don’t know the meaning of my life anymore?

Now that November is fast approaching, I can only hope I’d have a much more productive reading month.

I would love to hear from you guys! I missed talking to all of you and please please please, I am desperate for recommendations!
