Hey there, blog readers! It has been a long long while since my last post! Pardon me for I’ve been super busy these past days. To start with, I had been busy preparing test questions for the final exams and brainstorming class activities and problem sets which I left before JCI Natcon 2013 in Iloilo City.
Yes, you heard right! I’ve been to Iloilo for a Jayceeing duty. Jayceeing? Well, not really! For I did not register for the said Natcon. I am still “heartaching” for what was done on me! So I just went there for a short staycation at Centennial Resort Hotel and Convention Center! Mayaman! Yes, I paid for all my expenses as what I had been doing ever since I entered the organization (unlike other people there who are just relying on freebies by doing too much politicking!). You know what, it really just sucks!
Well anyway, I celebrated my birthday with the Red Roses again just like last year. I chose to celebrate my birthday away from home again so I couldn’t remember that it was my birthday! I tried it last year and it worked! So for this year, I did it again because I am already too old to be sentimental about the passing of a year! And I think you already know what I mean.
So these were the things I did on my birthday last Saturday:

I may not be a Catholic but I paid visit to a Catholic church on my birthday! I guess it is really human instinct to look for a place to solemnly say a prayer. So aside from sightseeing and picture-taking which I am really fond of, I paused for a while and quieted my soul. There I thanked God for my life’s extension again! I am beyond blessed to have reached this age for who would have thought that a sickly frail little baby could have survived and be as healthy as I am today!
To top my birthday celebration by myself, I had Japanese Maki for dinner! There ain’t no Japanese resto in Ozamis and I had my last Maki experience for ages already! So, I grabbed the opportunity of having one again with the very strong kick of wasabe to awaken my senses!
And what’s a birthday celebration without a birthday cake? Of course, my Atsi Ansha bought me one via Red Ribbon Dedication Cakes! I blew it on Sunday already for the Red Roses partied all night so I had my birthday extended.
Thank you so much, Red Roses for the love you have for me! 🙂 However, there is one thing that I had realized when we got home in Ozamis.
My Jayceeing days were the most exciting days in my life! As I look back to it, I miss it and regret why I suddenly threw it away. I need not explain myself and I accept that I’m being misunderstood. For what’s the use? What was lost has already been lost. Just don’t put the blame on me! Couldn’t you consider that I am also a person who is entitled to get hurt? Then I gave it another try only to realize that there are things which are not meant for us. But I am still glad to have found beautiful friendship. I’m still happy to have had experienced a walk to remember with all of you. Thanks for the Natcon experience, girls! I may have left but in my heart, you are still treasured! 🙂

P.S. This would be my last year to celebrate a birthday alone!
