85th - HALLO!

So the "save up" part of my resolutions for 2008 isn't off to a fantabulous start. Actually, it's off to an astoundingly BAD start. Darn it. MUST PUT IN MORE EFFORT INTO SAVING!

Went to Tagaytay earlier with Joko. Food, pictures and chika. Loves it. Diets cease to exist when you are with good friends, I swear. And what's a Tagaytay trip without stopping by Starbucks to harass our favourite barista, Uly? (But, Carla & Joko, dapat favourite barista nyo na rin ako!) Laughtrip with Uly over the "barista smile"! Such a shame that CB couldn't come along. She's at home with the sickies. GET WELL SOON, CARLA! WE HEART YOU HEAPS! Lesbos. Harharharhar.

Work is still a-ok, have decided not to waste my time with certain possibly problematic situations and am currently learning how to not have my blood boil whenever I encounter a stupid customer. There was one the other night that made one of the stupidest comments I've ever heard: "This doesn't smell like coffee." And it was regarding his tall Americano. That thing is made up of 2 shots of espresso and water. What the fuck. Then he changes his story and says that it doesn't taste like coffee, but his drink was still full to the brim and didn't look like it had been sipped at all, so how the hell could he have known what it tasted like? Anyways, he got his drink re-made in the exact same way I made it, and then he was like, "Okay, this is great." STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID! But other than random precious gems like that moron, things are still dandy.

I met someone. :) Let's see where it goes, yes?

I need to sleep! Going to watch the National Treasure sequel with Gracie tomorrow! Este later pala.

84th - Hello 2008!

Goodbye 2007, and hello 2008!

I have many, many resolutions for the new year. Keeping a positive state of mind so that I'm a happier person, not being afraid of love, quitting bad habits, working out regularly, etc.

2007 was mostly a bad year for me, although there were many amazing and fun moments throughout the duration of it. I did discover that I'm a tougher cookie than I thought I was, and I am definitely going to learn from the mistakes that I made this year.

I don't know if the beginning of 2008 can be considered an ultimately fresh start, but I guess it can be considered as an opportunity to cleanse ourselves of the grudges and negative bits of 2007. I don't hate him or her anymore; but at the same time I don't want to be friends with them. And I guess it's okay that way.

2008 is going to better. It has to be. It WILL be.

And as for materialism...I bought a Christmas/New Year present for myself: a phone! It's a spiffy piece of technology, I'm quite happy with it. Now I want new hair and a new tattoo, among other things. But let's start with the physical attributes muna. Harharhar!
