2009 Thank-yous

  1. A job that doesn’t require me to sit on my ass during the wee hours of the morning, simulating an American intonation with my social life and prime time National Geographic documentaries going down the miserable drain before me. All these just to get screamed at by some trailer park redneck from another time zone.
  2. Winning a national poetry award for a four-line travel-themed poetry. This after the University of the Philippines’ Creative Writing Institute decided I don’t display enough writing prowess to be admitted to their graduate school program (I knew it. Bjorn and I should have peppered our try-out manuscripts with Marxist terminologies and burned our poignant poetries on nature and God before the University’s nude effigy).
  3. Like-minded friends for the comedy and for being willing to perform various bizarre antics in the name of insanity, art and Bjork.
  4. The bookstores which never grow tired of stacking up their shelves with great literature.
  5. God and His promises.
  6. Mommy and Daddy for supplying me with enough morbidity with their daily discussions on medical gore over breakfast (and for putting up with my tantrums).
  7. He-knows-who-he-is for his perfect grammar, quiet intelligence, forest-green eyes and everyday cheerios.
  8. Occasional bouts of depression to always remind me that I am human and very much imperfect.
  9. Chowking for the ice cubes when I needed a cup full of it for blissful munching.
  10. Regina Spektor, Tori Amos and Fiona Apple for music that arouses the muse; Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage and Rage Against the Machine when I need an escape from my disappointments.

    I think that we should have resorted to plan B–drafting an application letter to the Dean of the College of Arts and Letters, while visualizing that we are actually writing to the communists, begging them to take us in.
