On my last blog post I wrote about how anxious I am with so many things but hey, a miracle really did happen and everything goes perfectly well. My grandma is now in good health and my parents were able to find someone who will look up to our house, so they’re here now and will be spending Christmas with us. A prayer is really a big thing and it really works, just believe in the power of it.
Today is December 24 so we started the day early in preparation for the noche buena. Earlier this morning I made a fruit salad, while my mother cooked her specialty dish, the ‘valenciana’. My brother and I also cooked bulalo for lunch and we also made ‘puto cupcakes’. Late afternoon when my mother ask me to accompany her to the supermarket to buy some stuff. While walking along valencia street, we passed by a newly opened ukay’ ukay. Since my mother is really a huge fan of ukay2x we decided to take a look on their items and we found out that there are lots of stunning sleeveless tops. We ended up buying almost 10 pieces of ‘sandos’ for only 50 pesos each. After ukay2x we finally hit the supermarket and after buying some groceries we went home. In addition to our ‘handa’ mama bought a kilo of lechon and also earlier this evening my father cooked ‘pansit’ and lastly I made a chicken macaroni salad. So, we end up having a lot of food on our table which is what we really wanted anyway and of course We shared some of it with our neighbors. What a Merry Merry Christmas!

Change is the only constant thing in this unsteady universe. Everything changes, your friends, family and even yourself. Personally, I’m going through a lot of changes and it gets me off base and I can picture out the big difference between me before and me at the present. They say, “Everything changes for a reason” but I can’t see why things happen the way they do and I’m still missing the little girl within me.

Teenage years were my most unforgettable moments. As I reflect on those years I recall happy memories as well as frightening and troublesome times. Within those years I met different kinds of people, had different set of friends and I’ve got to travel to different places. During those years I happen to be so aggressive with the things around me. I tend to get mad easily if I can’t have the things I want and I also became rebellious that I hold grudges and if someone did hurt me, I couldn’t calm my emotions, I always wish to take revenge and get even. I even tested my loved ones integrity and authority. I attempted to find my own way and have the freedom like any other teenagers have. No amount of patience and advice’s my loved ones especially my parents gave me just to set me back straight, but always end up arguing with them instead of listening to their speeches. A lot of arguments happened between me and my parents for a reason that they’re not approving me of my actions. I insisted on them to gave me their support in the things I want and I want to do but, parents know best and they didn’t gave me their one hundred percent support. They only want what’s best for me and they don’t want anything bad will happen to me. Yet, I’m so stubborn to take their advice’s I still pursue the things I want even if it’s wrong and I would get mad to those who people would go in my way and try to stop me from doing those things. So rebellious me!
