new year. new beginnings

Saturday, January 06, 2007

It's already the 6th day of the year and this is only my first post. I would have posted earlier but I've been sleeping a lot during the day. Napagod katawan ko, it needed time to recover from the Christmas Season ^_^

I spent New Year's Eve at the office. And like Christmas Eve, I was teary-eyed when I left the house. As I saw the families outside getting ready to greet the New Year, I felt even sadder.

When I got to the office, people were in generally the same state as I was. But we made plans to have early "lunch" at 11:30pm, go up the 17th floor for our Media Noche, and run down to the corner of Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas in time for the countdown and the fireworks display, sponsored by the City of Makati, the Makati businessmen/women & ABS CBN/Studi 23.

We looked forward to that at the start of our shift. My teammates and I were fast, coz we beat the others by telling the PAC that we wer having our lunch. We were the only ones that were able to go. We reached the corner of Ayala Avenue & Paseo de Roxas 20 seconds till midnight. Just in time for the fireworks display to start.

I felt like a child again, amazed at the wonderful kaleidoscope in the sky. My cloud of sadness lifted as I watched the myriad of colors exploding in the night sky. The crowd's enthusiasm and happiness was infectious and I found myself with a big grin on my face. I tried to call our house during the fireworks display, but it was so noisy around me that I couldn't hear the other line. I was finally able to call the house on our way back to the office, after 20 minutes. I almost didn't want to go back although we had to. But I felt that even if I'd get bad calls that night, my spirits wouldn't be dampened. :)

New Year. New Beginnings.

I don't really believe in horoscopes, but I like reading them at the start of every year. I don't know, but there's something about "knowing" what might happen during the year that excites me. I know that it might not happen, but it's something to look forward to. :)

My horoscope for the year looks good. Especially on career and love. O diba? Magandang motivation yan, kahit papaano. Hahahaha!

Here's to an awesome year for everyone!
