We have exactly 6 hours and 6 minutes of the year 2009 before we say hello to year 2010. And as the year comes to a close and the new year beckons, we look back on the past months and think about all the things that took place that made 2009 special. I've been doing a lotta thinking today and I think I'm really gonna miss this year.
Usually at the end of every year, I get a teeny bit anxious. This year seems to be coming to an exceptionally quick end and I am reluctant to let it go. And with SPM next year I suppose I should be even less keen on starting the new year. But you know what? I'm not. I'm actually pretty psyched. Because I know that with a little bit of faith, I can accomplish a lot. So how about adding more of that faith to my plate? :) I expect next year to be full of challenges. But I also expect it to be as full of new and amazing experiences. New responsibilities await me and I can only say I'm looking forward to them. I know He has a great plan for me. All I have to do is work hard to turn it into reality and live out that plan to the fullest.
My resolution for the year 2010? Hmmm. To live it as He would want me to and have no regrets by the year's end.
So.. What's yours? :)
"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." [Romans 5:5]
Face the new year with optimism, friends. & God bless you all.

I'm back! (it's an exclamation not because I'm ecstatic that I'm home but because...well, because.) I didn't officially announce I was going on a vacation so for those who did not know, I was on holiday in Spain and Portugal for 12 days. I've got a ton of pictures to show (which are all being uploaded at this very moment) and tons of stories to share. :) I won't blog much about the trip, though, because I don't think I'm good enough at blogging to make my long stories sound any interesting. Hehe. For you lucky (or unlucky, however you take it) ones who will be meeting me during the hols while I'm still on Spanish high, you'll be getting an earful of my ramblings about the trip and how much I miss it. A whole damn lot. Haha. Anyhoo, I had a great deal of fun experiencing autumn in Spain and Portugal and met some really nice people who were on the tour with us. Will update soon. ;) Tata for now.

And heavy wings grow lighter,
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again.
And I'll forget the world that I knew,
But I swear I won't forget you,
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past,
I'd whisper in your ear,
Oh darling I wish you were here.

I can hardly believe it.
so i had to leave for school after the 3rd set. Federer led 2 sets to 1. hope was gone, i thought it was all over. delpo himself looked like he didn't wanna continue on with the match after losing the 3rd set. and i.. i went to school really really down and weary. partly because i had woken up at 4am also la. Still i was praying: oh God let there be some miracle. A miracle. Anything. Don't let delpo lose. At least not this badly... sigh. all the time in school i was thinking bout the match but had no one to talk to bout it as none of my friends watch tennis. So i was left all alone with my thoughts. sad. [9am: they should be done with their match now...wonder who won...did delpo lose?..how badly? did he miss his chance to win the grand slam...] think think think... i know. i'm obsessing big time.
of all days. today i got home only at 4. rushed in, opened up a page, heart pounding and all. and what greets me first but "Federer loses cool, US OPEN title."
i couldn't believe it. like, seriously. hah!
they had gone on for 4 hrs and into 5 sets. things really turned around. who would have thought. after 2 weeks following the tournament, the quarters, the semis, nadal and now federer. it's over. and that's one heck of a way to end it.
oh what a miracle, indeed. :)
