Looking Back... | 2015

Last 2014, I told myself that 2015 will be the year full of opportunities... It was indeed a year full of that. I created this blog post to sort of reminisce the main highlights of my year that I want to share with you. If you want to see my accomplishments, my product recommendations; well, you're in the right place.

Do you remember your New Year's resolutions? I did that just like everyone else. Here are the things that I accomplished that I placed on my list for the year:

1. Drink tons of water. - I think I did.
2. Save money. - Easy-peasy
3. Give something to your parents. - From donuts to a shirt, oh yes.
4. Take long walks. - Me and my friends usually do this. It is relaxing and just fulfilling to walk towards your destination.
5. Cut the soda. - I suggest you try this for the next year. I felt like quitting soda is such a huge commitment... but it will pay off, health-wise. I assure you ;)
6. Read more. - I surpassed my Goodreads reading challenge for the year!
7. Have more friends.
8. Cook "real" food. - Making meals for your family is a greaaaat accomplishment :)
9. Increase your makeup skills. - Looking back to 2012, I think I did great... but oh no, I didn't. HAHAHA! I did a pretty good job this year but I think that I'm also gonna take it up a notch next year because I finally started applying it to others without the constant fear of messing up.
10. Clean your room. - I do major decluttering every month.
11. Raise Caspar properly. - I have a husky that needs care all the time. I think I did well for him to be socialized with people.


Solaire + Visitation of Pope Francis + Pico De Loro

Last January, me and my father went to Solaire while the visitation of our Pope happened. It felt miraculous just being in the same city as him. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see him up close, but the feeling that he's been there just made me complete. Solaire was a great hotel... even if our stay was a fail since I didn't get to check out their amenities and bad things happen while I'm in there. Kudos to the people who prepared the breakfast buffet! They made amazing food!

Pico De Loro is a place that I was fascinated with since before. I've been seeing it mostly in brochures of BDO that came in with the mail and I was excited to spend my summer there with my family. A beach vacay is a thing that relaxes me the most, plus great food, plus amazing sight-seeing; what more could you ask for?

Learning how to Ice Skate + Shooting a gun

I thought that Ice Skating was a job made for particular people. Apparently, you can learn how to ice skate. But it takes time, patience and a lot of determination. I had my fair share of fails that almost got me into a concussion. But hey, I learned while Gimme 5 was with us. (I honestly don't know anyone of them besides Nash. It was embarrassing not knowing them but it was cool to ice skate with them.) Shooting a gun was much more easier on my opinion. Beginner's luck got my back that time and it was an exhilarating experience. I loved it and would definitely go back to a shooting range once again.

Being an associate for the Student Government

I've had a fair share of accomplishments with these bunch. I never really planned on joining them, but since my friends was in it, I gave it a shot—I got in and I was happy. Our events made a mark on me and I definitely enjoyed every minute with them. :)

True Colors Tour + Kamikazee's Huling Sayaw

Watching an EDM producer live was weird... and far more better than normal concerts. It took us a few hours to stand-by and wait for the main act. Even so, I enjoyed it. (Especially singing the songs, dancing and even jumping around.) I was even oblivious about my shoes. They got soiled, btw. But I fixed it. :)

A friend of mine gave me tickets to Kamikazee's last concert... while the periodical tests are on-going, but everything is worth it. I've watched Kamikazee play before, but the last one is definitely more memorable than the first. 

Conquering Sandbox Pampanga

My friends and I went to Sandbox (a.k.a. your opportunity to die 10x in a day. lol jk) for Nicole's birthday celebration. It was a fun trip but my fear of heights got the best of me. At least I finished most of the activities and I mostly enjoyed the Giant Swing thing.
