Celebrating Christmas 333 miles away from home

Well, okay, this is actually my first time that I am not going back home for Christmas for some reasons so I am slightly melodramatic. It's not that I won't but I just can't. I know it's a cliche and I now sound like a sore loser, believe me when I tell you that this feeling totally sucks especially seeing my friends going home already for the break. So, instead of feeling sorry for the whole Christmas season where I should be merry and thankful and everything, I need to remind myself that wherever I am, as long as we have each other in our thoughts and hearts, Christmas will still be meaningful. I will continue to reminisce through last year's photos back when had a chance to roam around one of the famous attractions in my hometown (Dumaguete City) --- Freedom Park

Every year, it is just a joyous feeling to see those vibrant and bright display of everything of almost anything, everywhere! I know this year has improved and a lot of municipalities in Negros has also joined the bandwagon. (I wish to see those too.) And a lot more that I have not seen from different places. Ahhhh, bucket-list now overflowing.

Christmas season for me, no matter how busy I become, is also a time to reflect on life's full blast blessings, some I have hoped and some that were a complete surprise - in a good way, and to the lessons I have gained each and everyday.

So, from 333 miles away, I am greeting a Merry Merry Christmas to all my family and friends back home, and to everyone who are close to my heart. Hope to see you all really soon. XOXO
