I cant really understand why I love this holiday. Ridiculous traffic everywhere, overly materialistic people (myself included), seizure inducing light displays (I mean c’mon, let’s be tasteful) and the overrated Christmas ham that tastes so much better in my head.
Well, I like how my oh-so-wonderful bosses give us considerably less work in December. I like shopping because I’m a girl. I like wrapping presents, despite my complaints, it’s kinda soothing. I like the weather!!! I like bibingka. I always get excited about our “Christmas Picture/Holiday Card” (sorry, for Facebook friends only).
Man, I can just rant when I want to and make bola when I want to, huh?
Anyhoos, have a happy Christmas, everyone! :D
BTW Santa, I’m still waiting for my Dwight sleeve (size: small) and my green Adidas Vespa shoes (size: 7). An actual Vespa would be fine as well.
“I’m speaking from the point of view of a teacher here in the Ateneo. As I grow older, I realize more and more over the past two or three years that you cannot do everything. You have to choose your battles, you have to choose the things that you want to focus on, you have to give up some, not because those things you give up aren’t important, but you have limited time and limited energy. When you are not focused, I have realized in myself that I don’t do the things that I do as well as I could have if only I have time and focus. Our energies are afraid, our energies are dissipated, and you end up being superficial. You are spread out too thinly and you realize it might give you the impression of being busy and being occupied… and you realize, ‘I think I’ve wasted my time.’ I think it’s a realization of somebody growing older.”—Fr. Adolfo Dacanay, SJ, on what he’s learned for the past year (via danatorio)
