Ending and Beginning

Small town, big dreams.

.I wish your 2013 is starting out well. Mine? It's alright. I'm still on vacation but I'm scheduled to fly back to Manila tomorrow. My parents' absence here makes leaving easier but I still wish I could stay longer. I'm starting to feel jobless, though; no work and no money. I'm so poor it's not even funny. It doesn't help that very, very few establishments here accept credit cards.

I saw a cutie at the bank today. We locked eyes when he was on his way out. He had this grin. I'm not saying he's attracted to me but I'm certainly interested. Why did it have to happen less than 24 hours before my departure?It's been a fun time. I've been eating a lot, I was able to reunite with old friends, bonded with the kids and spared myself from any chores. Oh, and I played in the rain yesterday with two kids. It was fun and liberating until I sensed a couple of people staring and judging me.

I can't help but long for more mornings of sleep, afternoons at the beach, dinners with loved ones and late nights watching 'Armageddon' or 'Minute To Win It'. But the time has come; the end of my holiday. It's the start of a new year too. Time to go back to work. I understand the months ahead promise a lot of potential but I'm not going to join everyone else and map out 2013 with a year's worth of resolutions and wishes. Besides, I have to pack.


  1. Small town, big dreams. Word right there.
    Except that im not leaving to get back to manila anytime soon.

    Jealous of you!
