Resolutions...

all seasons in one day

Resolution.jpg

1215AM, January 6, 2009:

Habang naka-upo ako sa harap ng pc ko kanina, bigla kong na-realize na anniversary nga pala namin ng batch ko dito sa Peoplesupport.

Six years na akong nagtatrabaho dito.

Six years.

Six freaking years.

All of a sudden, I feel so old.

Biro niyo, 22 years old ako nung mag-simula akong magtrabaho dito, and now, I am 28.

Six years. Huwaw.

Pagkatapos ng anim na taon, nasaan na ba ako?

A lot of things have happened to me here.

I've fallen in love about seven times in six years.

I've made friends and lost friends.

I've been an agent, a supervisor, nagbalik sa pagiging agent, and now... a trainer (Peer trainer ka lang! bulong ng katabi ko. Sabi ko naman, Proud ako! Peer trainer po! Sabay taas noo and ismid).

Six years. Grabe.

This is my first job, you know?

I've learned quite a lot. Especially since nung lumayas ako sa bahay namin about four years ago. And never looked back.

Technically, I'm an orphan. Kapag holidays, nagpapa-adopt ako sa mga friends ko. Dun ako sa bahay nila naghoholiday. Although I don't regret separating from my family, I do miss them terribly. Every single day. I dream about them almost every night. Especially si Inday, my yaya.

Why don't I go home?

Sabi ng isang fellow trainer ko, "Ma-pride ka kasi, Buquir."

Sabi naman ni Jennifer Lopez, "All my pride is all I have."

Sabi nung isang baklang kalbo na madalas magpa-rinig sa akin sa floor, "Ano ba ipagmamalaki niya eh ang taba naman niya!".

And take note, I have done nothing to this guy. I swear to God. Ganyan lang talaga siguro siya.

Gusto ko sanang sabihin sa kaniya, "At least hindi ako mukhang matandang baklang prostitute." But I didn't. That would be wrong. Mukha lang akong baboy, pero hindi ako ugaling baboy, at least I don't think I am.

Maybe, ma-pride nga ako. Is that the same as being mayabang?

Coz I don't think mayabang ako.

Not intentionally, anyway. But I'm sure some people will disagree. Well, you can't please everyone.

I'm not asking for your reassurance, folks. I'm just thinking out loud.

Dati, in the early stages of this blog of mine, madalas akong magsulat ng ganito. Mga kadramahan about myself.

Kaso, nung medyo sumikat na ito, I decided to focus entirely on comedic writing.

Ngayon lang ako uli nakapagsulat ng ganito.

It's kind of a relief, actually.

Six years.

And what do I have to show for it?

I have friends. Of course, I have lost some, but hey, that's life, and right now, one of my new year's resolutions is to keep what I have close to my heart. The ones I've lost, well, have a good life na lang. It's really not in my nature to make amends. In my defense, I loved you all. Kaso pag goodbye, goodbye talaga.

Six years sa Peoplesupport.

Now that I think about it, it doesn't seem like such a long time, really.

Parang ang bilis nga eh.

I can't wait for the next six.

wehehehe..happy bday bookie!
on a serious note, it is still best that you reconnect with your family...
i may not know the details, pero iba pa rin ang family...
it's great to have friends, but they can only do so as much...
happy new year!

by fridaygirl

congratulations bookie. six years in this business is an achievement.

by the way, what is wrong with being fat? insecure lang ata ang mga nanunukso...

with regards to your family, wag mong ipilit. the right time will come for reconciliation. :)

happy new year.

love you, bookie!..
basta if in the future you find yourself disliking me, i want no goodbyes.
coz i'm not a quitter, and bubwisitin kita hanggang sa kausapin mo na ko ulet. :)
happy new year!

Our FAMILY is the greatest wealth we have here on earth :)

congrats bookie ! happy 6th years ! ☺

by freak_me

Queer!

I miss you!

I love this post! i wish i am not one of the lost friends you have... 4000 miles may separate us but deep inside you are still one of my good and true friends...

As for you being an orphan, don't feel that way... there are people that love you and will care for you more than a friend... but i do hope na whatever happened to you and your family eh maayos na and magkaintidihan na kayo... i think i remember what happened four years ago...

As to the baklang kalbo, bayaan mo na siya... baka hindi lang pagkakalbo niya ang kanyang issue... hehehehehehehe!

Miss you queer!
