FIVE YEARS AGO

Because the year's about to end in a week's time, I thought I should look back on the years that were. Five years ago...

- I was a Team Leader for a call center in Ortigas.
- I was not overweight
- the biggest problem I had was having an agent not coming to work or not performing
- I didn't care how I look, except if our bosses come to the office
- I only blog on friendster
- I still had friendster
- I have never heard the term work-life balance
- my goal was to buy a bottle of cologne at least once every quarter
- my best friends in the world were just my colleagues
- it is an unforgivable sin if I miss on buying a comic book
- I'm not sure if I had sex that whole year five years ago
- there was no one else in my mind but Joy
- I started experiencing quarter life crisis
- living alone away from the comforts of my own home was the last thing on my mind.

Maybe alot's changed five years ago as compared to now. Am I a better person after all these years? I don't know.

There are things that I was better at five years ago.

But there's one thing I am pretty sure of, I have grown up.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

aajao said...

hindi ba dapat looking back TEN years ago ang blog post kase isang dekada ang natapos? hehe.. well, five years is FIVE YEARS. maraming nababago sa atin, maraming nangyayari. gaya ng sinabi mo, may mga bagay na "better" ka five years ago pero sigurado ka naman na "you have grown up". yun ang mahalaga--- alam natin kung saan tayo napunta at papunta :)
