Memories of 2006

Again, I was tagged by Kars. Not sure what the name of this meme is, it’s something like recalling the best and worst of 2006. Well here’s what I can recall.

What did you do in 2006 that you’ve never done before?

I attended the MOA Blogger Meetup! Yey!

What would you like to have in 2007 that you lacked in 2006?

Lots, the most needed would be in related to my schoolwork is a digi-cam. Hope I manage to get a digi-cam this year to help me start up on my digital photography and to be prepared for my undergrad thesis.

What date from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

February 2006, the wonderful street dancing during our town fiesta and the tragedy of the Wowowee-ULTRA stampede.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Qualifying to have this .com.ph domain + hosting for free. To think that it was just six months since I started blogging regularly and having granted this uber cool package is a big milestone for me.

What was your biggest failure?

Missing the deadline for application into the official student publication of the DLSU-D. I’ve been meaning to join since 2005. Damn my procrastinations.

What was the best thing you bought?

A pair of Jag jeans that just fits and looks good on me. All my other pants before were either too long, too loose, too short or simply not just me. It’s my favorite pair actually.

Did you suffer illnes of injury?

Yes, I had UTI last July and was ill for like a week. I missed my midterm exams and worst, it was my birthday.

Whose behavior merited celebration?

Agie, Jacob, Monico, Ranial aka Potpot and RJ; the most hardcore members of Sining Bayan to date. They really helped the group survive 2006.

What did you really, really get excited about?

Using this .com.ph domain that bears my name!

What songs will always remind you of 2006?

APO revivals, Sponge Cola’s “Bitiw” and Callalily’s album Destination XYZ.

Compared to this time last year, I am…

I really can’t recall how was it like during this time last year, but definitely I had more sleep back then.

What do you wish you’d done more?

Bloghopping, linking to other people’s posts and actually attending my classes.

What do you wish you’d done less of?

Staying up late into the night.

How many one-night stands?

I invoke my right to privacy. Hahahaha!

What was your fave TV program?

Naruto, Bubble Gang and Grey’s Anatomy.

What was the best book you’ve read?

In 2006, my best read would be Memoirs of a Geisha.

What was your greatest musical discovery?

Anton Ramos and Anne Dudely, their techno(?) music which we used in a theater production was just so beautiful and catchy. Next would be Callalily, they simply rock!

What was your fave film of the year?

The Revenge of the Sith, watching Yoda and Darth Sidious dueling with lightsabers is every Star Wars fan’s dream-come-true. Too bad Yoda lost.

What did you do on you bday, and how old were you?

Nothing much, I had UTI during that day, and I just turned 21.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?

A Spartan-geek blogger. Simple jeans, my Chuck Taylor sneakers and my favorite “Common sense is not that common” t-shirt.

What kept you sane?

I partially lost my sanity way before 2006, hahaha but thanks to Kim and Bogs for helping me keep what was left of my sanity.

Which celebrity figure did you fancy the most?

Sean Connery. The first and original, “Bond…James Bond.”

What political issue stirred you the most?

The administration’s drive for Charter change. A-holes!

Who did you miss…in Manila?

Khaito, a good friend of mine.

Who was the best new person you met?

Mheo Soriano, one cool Lasallian Volunteer.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2006:

Standing up to what you believe in, despite the consequences it will definitely prove you exist and would give much worth to your life and existence.

What was the nicest thing someone told you about yourself?

“Kuya, astig ka!”

The most touching experience you’ve had this year?

Watching and blogging about the ULTRA stampede live.

If you could go back in time to any moment of 2006 and change something, what would it be?

Despite the many regrets, I would change nothing in 2006. What’s done is done, besides it could have really really serious repercussions in the space-time continuum. hahaha

What are your plans for 2007?

Get a digi-cam, improve more on my blog and blogging and get better grades at the university.

How are you different now that the year has ended?

I’ve learned a lot from 2006, and I’m more determined to achieve my goals this year.

What are your wishes for the new year?

ISPs get better preparation so that connections would not suffer that much during natural calamities. All the blessings to Filipino bloggers and a better life for all Pinoys.
