12 of 2012: The 12 Highlights of My 2012!


The year 2012 was another wondrous year for me. Many exciting things happened in my life for the said year. I even faced different challenges which I surpassed. But in all those things, the year 2012 marked my celebrity career. It was a shinning year, a year of events!    

Last 2011, I wasn't able to wrap up my year since I was too busy and I neglected to write my own yearender. But this year, before I face the new challenges of 2013, let me share with you the twelve things which highlighted my year.     
  
Ladies and gentlemen, here are my "12 of 2012: The 12 Highlights of My 2012" which I enumerated the same way I did every year end:


1. The Year of the Shinning Stars
     
As I have said, 2012 was my year of the stars! This was the year where I met the brightest stars of the country. I met different personalities from the movie, TV, and music scenes both local and international.

6. The Year When We Got a New Pet Cat

Yes, 2012 was the year when we officially adopt our cute pet cat named Macmac. At first, my mom was hesitant in having a pet cat inside our home. Before, we only feed Macmac outside of our house. But all of a sudden my mom eventually changed her mind and allow Macmac to live with us inside our home sweet home. He now sleeps, eats, and roams around our home. He can sleep everywhere he wants - in my bed, in our sofa, in my brother's computer table, or in my own laptop table.

7. The Year When I Faced Challenges and Conflicts

The year 2012 was not always a good year. This was also the year when I got conflicts with certain persons. I wouldn't anymore elaborate them here in my yearender. They already know who they are and the challenges I faced. It only proves the saying, "Sa lahat ng gubat may ahas!"       


8. The Year of Material Lost

As I've said, 2012 was not always a good year. Aside from conflicts which made me stressful last year, one of the things which made 2012 remarkable in not so good category was loosing consecutive material things. These were: my wallet was snatched in the bus in the rainy night of August, my cellphone was lost/dropped in the FX van a week after, my coin purse was lost, and borrowed things were not returned to me by the borrower! And before the year end on the Christmas eve, my expensive shampoo was stole by my gatecrasher cousin!


9. The Year of the Reunion                

Back in the good things in 2012, the year also served as a reunion with my close friends. I was reunited with my college friends and besfriend! I was with them in some of the events I attended. I even watched three premier night movies (superhero movies) with my bestfriend. 'Rockyron' returned in 2012!

11. The Year of  My Blooming Romance and Lovelife

Aside from having new set of friends, my lovelife truly bloomed in 2012! Yes, I was full of romance last year! And take note, I got three affairs at the same time (yup three gfs at the same time) last March. But now I'm stick to one! I was supposed to have another affair but I think that will not prosper because of a certain reason which I will not mention here (baka mabasa niya). About my sexlife, I prefer to shut up this time.
