December 31, 2010.
The last day of the year.
As unbelievable as it may seem, such is the case. And all we can do is live it as best we could.
I would have said, “it seems only yesterday”, but it sounds as if that statement has gone through a lot already and is rather full of scratches and burns and I don’t wanna add to that.
But as is the case, it seems to me that this year, 2010, went by quickly but, definitely, not without a trace. In fact, too much have happened that the list will be too long if I did try to make one – a list which would most certainly include the massive oil spill at the Gulf, the hostage taking at the Quirino Grandstand, and, on a lighter side, the election of the first bachelor president of the Republic of the Philippines, Noynoy Aquino.
All of these events combined to make 2010 rather colorful. And, if I may say so, worth remembering. But as I’ve said, it is the last day of the year. And tonight, at midnight, two things are gonna happen at once: the closing of one colorful year and the opening of a new one.
So, let’s all bid 2010 a joyous farewell and welcome 2011 with an optimistic outlook!
(By the way, I can only hope that when 2011 comes, all of us still have the same physical structure – to mean, no lost fingers and such.)
