The year started with high energies and emotions as I joyfully celebrated my 30th birthday in January, and the 2nd year anniversary in February.
The second quarter saw me spending Holy Week in Baler - where I fell in love with the laidback life of the province and felt the urge to move out of the city. A blissful trip to Baguio affirmed the urge and I vowed to myself that I would live there for at least a portion of my life in the near future.
Quarter three brought bouts of restlessness and along with the hectic but happy preparations for Mama's 60th birthday extravaganza. A dip in emotions happened around August - revolving around feelings of stagnancy and migration developments - the lack thereof.
Happiness started to pick up when the migration wheels started turning around October onwards, along with the accomplishment of some physical feats : a 21 km trail run and 2 duathlons. The spirit started to soar when I decided to end my minionship and turn in my resignation letter in November (effective March 15, 2013).
The heart started to really sing again as I celebrated the last day of the year in Hanoi, Vietnam - before pedaling out on a life-changing cycling tour.
All in all, a tremendous year in this rocky road life.

The dots are connecting and visions are slowly coming into fruition. I have a feeling 2013 is going to be EPIC!
