Oh Yes... It's My Birthday

It is funny that I find myself right here in front of my desktop PC trying to write something about the year that passed. I think I have never done this before; looking back at what happened and thinking about what is in store for me.

But I guess right now, I am doing this because I feel like I am on a crossroad and I don't know where to go. Frankly, I just want to have one last look before I head out into whatever God has in store for me.

My 21st year was a blast, academic-wise. It was my last year in college, and thankfully I graduated despite being totally unsure of what I'd really like to do or if I really want to pursue Chemical Engineering after school. Even with the imminent plan of going to the US and the ever-increasing desire to go to medical school, I took the licensure exams (as a security blanket if things don't work out in the US) and now I am a Registered Chemical Engineer. That was just the icing on the cake, and I am really happy that I made my parents and everybody around me so proud.

This past year was also a good year for me and music. Music is my passion and God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve Him through singing. Not only that but He has also blessed me with new friends; these wonderful people at Canto Cinco that I can always look up to for strength and inspiration. And on top of all that, I will finally be able to fulfill my dream: to record an album. This is definitely that one ride of my life that I will never forget.

It is amazing how God has given me a lot this year when I, on the other hand, had been giving so little to the ones I love. I can say that my 21st year was not a good year for relationships; I had been very unfaithful and careless with Kika and I am definitely not proud of the things I did and the pain I've caused her and all the other people involved. But then, I am enjoying all these new experiences and friendships that I've gained and I thank God for all these, especially now that things are working out well with me and Kix...

Still, I am happy of how my life is going right now. I may not know what I really want to do, what road to take, or what dream to pursue, but if all these blessings are indications of how God is closely paying attention then I am definitely looking forward to everything my 22nd year has to offer.
