Just wanna share with you how I survived this year that started with a not so good memory but ended up feeling blessed by the end of the year.
JANUARY. This is my birthday month. Initially thinking that my birthday celebration will give me a blast but it turned out to be a disaster when my Ex and I broke up. I decided not to celebrate at all but my friends were very kind enough to make me feel that I am loved by a lot of people. Thank God I have a strong support group that helped me get through this stage.
Instead of dwelling on what happened to my failed relationship, I thought of diverting my negative feelings into something positive and self-fulfilling.

|(Grace to the Finish) My first Fun Run with my friends|
FEBRUARY. With what I’ve been through for the first month of the year, I thought of giving myself a break. 2 minor climbs for this month. (and gala ko lang. HAHAHA!)
|Pinatubo Trekking with Eskapaderas|
|Gulugod Baboy with my friends from the south|
MARCH. My much awaited Run United Fun Run happened this month. I started with a 5K run
|Run United 1|
I also got an invitation from my elementary teacher. He invited me to the Recognition Day and asked me to do a speech for the students. (ang serious lang ng peg ko dito. HEHEHE...)
|With some of the faculty members of LTES|
APRIL. Aside from Run United, I also joined Earth Run 2012 that was held in BGC. That was my first 10K run (ang lakas lang talaga ng loob ko). I was with my brother and a couple of friends in DCMi.
I also joined another minor climb. I was with my Housies (Makati Housemates), Eskapaderas (DCMi friends) and Juxtapoz PUP. We conquered Pico de Loro.
MAY. Another minor climb happened this month. That time I was with my bestfriend and her friends. Time to catch up and the best way to do it was - Mountaineering in Nagsasa Cove.
I also got the chance to see my High School friends. Define reminiscin' ^^

JUNE. This month was a FOOD TRIP month. Since I started with my “no rice” diet I seldom eat out but when my craving strikes, cheat day comes.
The 2nd installment of Run United 2 happened on this month. Had my first 10K run in the Run United series
|Me with Bonna and Kiko|
JULY. As I was fulfilling my personal desires, I also finally decided to feed my soul. At long last, I attended The Feast – the happiest place on earth. I became a regular attendee since then.
|Bro. Bo Sanchez|
I got the chance to join the Milo Metro Manila Eliminations. My first ever run with a congested track (hayst... It looks like more of an ALAY-LAKAD than a fun run)
|Me with Jules and Rose (sorry it's blurry. blame my phone. HAHAHA)|
AUGUST. Eskapaderas invaded
|Ang labo na naman. Blame it sa kumuha ng picture ko. BWAHAHA|
OCTOBER. Had my longest vacation ever (11 days out of the office. Yahoo!) But before I got my long VL, our company had the Family Day. QA, HST and L&D teamed up for the bay decoration. (BTW, got the First Place ^_^)
|Ang mga feeling bata|
I was so surprised when the last series of Run United 2012 happened after a month. The Run United Philippine Marathon happened while I was on leave. Buti na lang nakaabot ako sa registration :D
|kami-kami pa rin.. HAHAHA|
NOVEMBER. I was so stressed this month. Had to extend after my shift for the rehearsals. In the middle of super aligaga moment (because of the rehearsals of the Phantom of the Opera) I decided to visit my friends in INF. Lahat lang ng kwentuhan ay summarized. HAHAHA…
|Me with Jhoera and Julius. Gusto ko lang ang peg ng kulot kong buhok :D|
DECEMBER. Finally the wait is over. Aside from the 13th month pay, I was also waiting for the Year End Party 2012 to be over. (Gusto ko ng matapos ang stress ko. HAHAHA!) Though we did not get the grand prize, we enjoyed the night with our Modern Victorian Soiree theme.

Welcome to the Christian world Kendra Thea! Kendra’s dedication happened this month too. Ang laki na ng pamangkin ko….

Now looking back to year 2012, I realized that I’m still lucky. I lost someone in my life but I gained a lot. I gained my self-respect, met new friends, got into a lot of places and still getting the opportunity to do what I love to do. I started the year with tears in my eyes but ended up with a full smile on my face. I am the person that I am today with what I’ve gone through in the past – STRONGER AND BOLDER :D
I also wanna thank God for guiding me and for giving me the life that I have right now. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
