Memories: Old and New

Coming home to our house in Rizal always gives me a pinch of pain.

I felt the exact same feeling when I was here last year.

Probably because it brings back memories of my father, and it reminds me that a couple of days after January 1st will be his death anniversary.

But what's good in this house is that I would stumble upon bits and pieces of memories when I was younger--be it photos, drawings, stuff toys, textbooks, and the like.

This time, when I was rummaging through an old, dusty bookshelf, I saw a photocopy of my College Graduation Clearance. My goodness! That was 8 years ago!

My youngest brother saw a much older stuff—my Writing notebook when I was in 4th Grade.

He took a photo:

and posted in online with a caption: 

"Ha! You wanted to be a dentist. Why are you in IT again?"

I thought it was funny, because I don’t remember writing about it when I was that young.

So I just commented with: 

"Look at my handwriting! It looks silly."

It really looks different on how I write now.


Anyway, when we were younger, we wanted to be a lot of things and it may or may not be what we planned or intended to be.

Because people change.

Just recently, my friends and I went on a trip to beach and I could say that it was one of the most fun trips I've had in my life.

One friend even made sure that aside from being fun, the trip also has to be meaningful.

In the evening of that trip, before we drink the night away, we gathered around a bonfire by the beach and talked about our experiences, the things that we're thankful for in 2014, and the plans we have for 2015.

I remember saying that for this year, 2015, I'd try learning a new skill. Although, I'm not sure what specific skill it's going to be. Hahaha! 

After everything that's been said that night, I guess I could conclude that what we are now is a culmination of all the aspirations, the decisions we took, the mistakes we've done, the people we've met, the friends we've made, the books we've read, and the lessons we've learned in life; which all contributes to the memories that we make.

So, cheers to a new year!

Let's make this year count by making new memories.

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make
my blog jump out. Please let me know where you
got your theme. Bless you
