Dating is still weird. The start of the year had me sort of putting a pause on it from my 2015 activities and I realise that 2016 was spent in a weird state of just not-dating but also not not-dating.

The extent of my seeing someone was January and he was French and it lasted all but 3 dates and it didn't end so well, obviously. And now, at the end of the year, quite as a surprise, there was another French guy and well, it went up to 7 dates -- the eighth meeting being the not so lucky time he ended things and this time, it lasted a month.

And it was good, while it lasted. Really good. Except for when it wasn't good, right there at the end, but I want to remember it for the good that it brought me. I realised there are no benchmarks for relationships -- no I've never been in one technically so there was nothing to compare it to but also now I know that each encounter is different. A journey so they say.

And though I was hoping for a better outcome -- an actual relationship with an actual guy who actually liked me -- it served its purpose. I don't know what yet at this point. It still hurts to think about it and yet I also don't want to forget.

On another note, I should probably stay away from the French for a bit.

November has been supremely insane. In the best way possible. I started my new job. I went home for two consecutive weekends (I don't recommend though it was so good to be able to attend the weddings) and I went to Kuala Lumpur for the first time.

So many firsts this month even if we're in the second to the last month of the year. It's insane how QUICKLY this year has come to a close. And now, we say hello, December and literally just 31 days till 2017. Time, where do you go. Read more...Collapse )

It's coming. Watch me self-destruct and just enjoy these glorious four episodes. It's been way too long. I'm so excited.
So it's weekend number 1 in Manila, something I was looking forward to but didn't think would be way too short. I really do like coming home for short periods if only to hang out with my parents but also for wonderfully special occassions.

What are you guys currently into? Please do share. I want recommendations! + + +Collapse )

Rarely do my Saturdays involve going out and meeting people but sometimes, we make excuses and sometimes, it's worth the trouble of getting up and out of bed (still my number one choice, though). Especially now that I've gone back to work, I cherish weekends way more than I used to in my phase of unemployment.
