Lights

My boyfriend and I weren’t able to celebrate New Year’s Eve together, but we definitely spent a lot of time together after. We decided to take a stroll around Cubao. I’ve always loved Cubao during the holidaysβ€”the lights are so pretty and people look forward to the giant Christmas tree every year.

Although not very clean, Cubao will remain special to Chad and I. It’s where we met (again) a couple of years ago, plus it’s the only place near us where we can find shops that develop films.

It finally sank in that 2013 has begun. I do not plan on wasting any time this year, and it kinda makes me scared. I’m at an age where every day is crucial to my success, where there’s no room for fooling around. I’ve got 12 months to make things start happening; it isn’t enough, but it’s the only time given.

I can only hope for the best.

    • Thanks, Adly! Cubao’s not too bad. If only people learn how to dispose their trash properly, it’s a going to be a more beautiful place IMO.
