A Piece of Me... in April 2011

This month,

I like that a LOT of good things have been happening to me lately. (And I hope it's not just because April's my birthmonth. I hope the blessings continue the rest of the year my life.) I have already shared some of them with you guys, but there is something more I have yet to announce here. I'll write about it one of these days. Just know that it is the definitely one of the BEST highlights of my blogging life, I burst into tears when I first learned about it ♥ Not that I need any reason to justify why I love writing, but it only made me realize that I really love doing this. Writing keeps me alive, and knowing the things I write are appreciated, that's just wow! Thank you ♥

I don't like that my and my friends' beach get-away is scheduled the weekend before my lifestyle shoot session with Tracey Heppner on the 14th! My friends (the same group of friends I went to Bataan and Ilocos with) have planned to go to Puerto Galera this time, and I just know I will get super dark! It doesn't help that I still haven't found the perfect dress to wear for the shoot. Thanks to my new fringe, I've thought of having (500) Days of Summer's Summer Finn as my peg.

I want you to know that Lady Antebellum's Need You Now finally stopped being my current soundtrack. It has been my heart's song ever since I first heard it on the radio, and now - exactly a year since my most recent heartbreak - I can honestly say that I have moved on. No more late-night over-analysing, no more obsessive thoughts about the should haves, would haves, and could haves. Yesterday I purged my phone of all memories of him by deleting all his messages. Yes, I am that sentimental. I've already gone to a place where memories of him and what we had cannot hurt me any more, and this time there is no turning back.

These days, the Lady Antebellum song my heart is singing (aside from The Script's songs in preparation for their concert that I will watch on the 16th heh), is Ready To Love Again.




Yeah I'm ready to feel now
No longer afraid of the fall down
It must be time to move on now
Without the fear of how it might end
I guess I'm ready to love again.

I've planned to delay my birthday plans. Two more days before my birthday, and I still haven't thought of a perfect way to celebrate it. I've thought of some ideas, and my officemates also helped by pitching in some suggestions, but I don't know why but they all sounded lame. I don't want to make do with a half-hearted celebration, so I think I will just have a low-key celebration here at home with my family, celebrate with my Puerto Galera beachmates on April 9 to 10, then celebrate with my officemates after my two weeks-vacation (from April 6 to 20 ohellyeah!). Maybe my blog friends and I can also organize a get-together? I don't know, I am stumped x_x

I want to say to someone special all of you, the first few entries in A Krissyfied Giveaway have all warmed my heart. Thank you very much for your kind words! They are all appreciated ♥ I wish I can send out prizes to everyone, but my current financial status won't be able to allow that yet. So in the meantime, six lucky people has the chance to win special gifts from me, on my birthmonth! Click here to join.
Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. It’s like forever, always changing. For any of us, our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?”
