Leap year only happens every 4 years. Today is Leap Day and we should make it count.
Just as I turned on the TV, Leap Year is being shown on HBO. It’s one of my favorite chick flicks and not just because Matthew Goode is the leading man. It is said in the movie that there is an Irish tradition wherein the women propose to the their men on Leap Day. My favorite line was said by the Bride during the wedding reception scene.
“May you never steal, lie, or cheat, but if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows, and if you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life, and if you must cheat, then please cheat death because I couldn’t live a day without you.”
Going back to celebrating Leap Day, it’s an additional day of the year for us to share happiness and give love. Carpe Diem!
Lenten Season. A time to reflect, pray, repent, fast and abstain.
Last year, I spent my Valentine’s Day with a few of my single friends. Since we all had nothing to do, they came over my house where we had tacos and watched movies. It was my first time to receive a flower and on Valentine’s Day to boot so the thoughtful gift was deeply appreciated.
As for this year, I was supposed to stay at home and do the same thing I did last year, but only this time I plan on doing it alone. However, I was persuaded by my friends to attend a gig because when they asked me if I was going, I told them I’d pass and they immediately assumed that I had a date. So I had to change my plan for Valentine’s Day and based on what happened last night, I had no regrets. I spent my night with my friends and they had a gig at an auditorium which looked like a mini Valentine’s Day concert from where I was seated. It was a small crowd and they loved the band. I loved the setlist because it was perfect for the occasion. We ended the night by fulfilling my craving for bulalo at Tapsi Ni Vivian, the restaurant that serves the best bulalo in town. To sum it all up, I had a wonderful time.
I wonder how next year will be.
I’ve been thinking of what to write here but I seem to be in a writer’s block for the longest time which eventually led me to forget that I have a blog. I really don’t know what to say because there’s nothing much going on in my life. It’s still the same boring routine every single day. I could also write about something which interests me but I have no idea what topic and where to start. In the end, these are all a bunch of excuses and lies.
Happy Valentine’s to everyone!
