Worked on an old project again. What a way to start the year, right? :) But it was interesting, having a different aspect of the old project right before my eyes. It was also the time that I got to work with other people. By the end of the month, Jonette taught me how to knit. Sacha was also home last January and even shared home-made chili jam with us.
My birth month! Lol. I watched Rent with my dear JM <3 Also had dinner with the PMBAs and our friends from work.
I started learning how to crochet. JM was the one who bought my first crochet hook from Dreams. Lol. And there were other things that I learned that got me really depressed and I think it was the time I knew I had to do something. Time for a change, so to speak.
The month went by so fast. I was deep in another project which challenged my skill in coming up with prototypes of screens that are going to be used in an application. It was fun despite the difficulties.
This month was my transition from my previous company to a newer one. Quick turn of events? Yes, but there were circumstances that led to the decision. It was also the month I got to spend more time with Chelle and Josh because I stayed in their place during that time. And Tali Beach! PMBA friends and I went bonding in Tali Beach. Fun times while drinking and sharing all sorts of stories. I even cooked after our all-night-long drinking session wahaha.
It was the beginning of my overtime at work because of SQL-related stuff. JM was patient enough to teach me a lot of SQL stuff on weekends. Crash course in SQL! It is his birth month too XD Dale and Evelyn got married in June. They looked so awesome in their outfits. Evelyn was in a Queen Amidala inspired gown <3 Their vows made me cry, actually.
JM and I celebrated 5 years of togetherness <3 However, this was also the month when Glenn (one of our close friends) left the country for work. Shane also celebrated her birthday in the same month. At least we were able to spend time together eating in Wan Chai one Saturday afternoon in July. Diane and Mark's baby was christened that month too. Bebe Reibel was adorable <3
Things were going insane at work, well, for me that is. But I had time to unwind with friends in Punta Fuego. I was frequently in the south around that time of the year, methinks.
I was getting sick frequently, probably due to stress. My headaches were terrible. The doctors couldn't really find anything seriously wrong because the headaches were mainly tension headaches and were muscular. It was also the time I seriously read a whole lot of Inception fics hahaha. One of the fun moments in September was Peppy's birthday. That evening was pretty fun because I met some of his friends who also love Merlin. ;)
The start of my hiatus from work. Decided that it was time to give it a rest. I started to crochet, knit and cook a whole lot more. I caught up with some tv series I was watching and some recommendations from friends. I was practically a hermit. XD Well, I did go out to WordCamp and Cosmania X! I cosplayed Canada <3
I was cramming for a bazaar in Cubao X. I spent the second half of November crocheting and knitting like crazy. Teng and Emir dropped by and even taught me how to bake :D I also celebrated World Usability Day and went to Komikon -- where I got to see the awesome Tepai Pascual again. I think it was November when I watched Till My Heartaches End with Kel -- and that was simply because my curiousity got the best of me. Lol.
The first weekend was spent in the bazaar. I thank Cat for sharing the space with me and just sharing her stories because I learned so much. My friends dropped by too and bought from us! Yay for customer friends XD
This month, JM was also in Viare's production of "12 Angry Men" where he was acting as Juror Number 8. Another production I saw was "Isang Panaginip na Fili" - it was a treat from my sister :D I also got to spend time with friends out of town some time before Christmas. Oh and I changed my Tumblr account's layout for my online craft and brand related blog - Crafty Cat - so please take the time to visit it :D
What's in store for me in 2011? I have no idea. But I think it will be an exciting one for me because there are some things cooking right now but you'd just have to wait before I tell you.
