The second half of the year definitely came by so fast. Both work and play kept me busy.
- I had the rare chance to step inside the Malacañang Palace. I also had the opportunity to travel to far-flung places in Mindanao (such as Cotabato, Butuan and Compostela Valley) I wouldn’t have been to if not for my line of work.
- I got the privilege to chat with Ms. Rina Jimenez-David whose column I’ve been following since high school. Aside from work-related matters, we talked about how worthwhile and fun it was to watch Zombadings! That very same week, her column about the indie movie came out.
- In 2011, I got to write for a medical journal, a real-estate magazine and by the start of the second half of the year – Meg Magazine. (Thanks, Klara!) I think the more rewarding part was helping a good friend make her dream come true: seeing Chubbs’ work in print! 🙂
- Of course, Joel and I made the most of our first couple of months together. I wasn’t really up for it but he managed to make me attend a CURSOR event again after quite some time. Glad to be able to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
Along with the good memories are sad ones. A dear friend and former co-worked passed away. We were of the same age. It was heartbreaking to see someone so bubbly and vibrant leave us behind – but we know she’s in a better place now where she is surrounded by the birthday boys.
