Been Busy Playing Dead... Now, Let Me Haunt You
It's been a while since I've last posted. I was acting on some things that must have been done for a long time and I'm seeing some results already. Hard work is paying off but I'm still raising the bar.
Also, I'll be out of the country for a while next week and booking has gone crazy for a while. Now, I'm done with it too. The fact that this time of the year is a peak season for trips and that I am attending a Greater China and SEA convention made the scenario worse, but the adrenaline rush that came with the challenge to get past the hurdle was worth it.
It would be my first trip. To have it at the age of 22 is not something to be proud of (I mean, it could have been earlier), but I'm happy that I made it happen and not by asking money from my parents.
Well, my strong suits surely worked. However, they drive me nuts at the same time.
I have so much to post, including the scary (but turned out funny) incident that could have led me blinding a guy under the Ortigas flyover last week.
Just for a short talk, I went home this weekend and, as requested, slept beside my little brother. My mom told me my dad was laughing because I slept in my parents's bedroom.
Well, they didn't mind actually. I just didn't expect they'd notice that both their eldest and their youngest are sleeping beside them. My dad just realized they still have two kids in the house: a 4 year old and a 22 year old.
