Christmas Dilemma

The Christmas season has just flewn like a whirlwind. It just came and went by. For me, it was the worst that I had, so far. The events during the season was distressing and disappointing to me. It was not like the other Christmases that I had which became very remarkable. Well, maybe it is, but in a very different, unexpecting way.
First and foremost, the bonus that we are usually expecting during this season has not yet arrived. Now, I have to really keep a tight budget to survive the rest of the month. My once exciting christmas shopping now turned into a very lonesome moment in my room. I just amused myself with reading books and worse...., talking to myself!
Secondly, I terribly miss my friends. I'm stuck with all my office works, while I keep on thinking about the fun we had during our Christmas party.
And lastly, and probably the worst..., there were really some people who keep on bugging me. Well, there were people that I really hate. I super do that their presence, even, infuriates me. And they still keep on existing.... Whoa...! I wish they'll be dumped into the right places.

My New Inspiration

I guess, I was just having a lot of fun lately. I don't know, but all I want to do is laugh with my friends. I think its healthy anyway.... Well, nothing really interesting has happened. I met this old woman yesterday. She is very talkative and I instantly liked her. I really admired her views on life. Despite her being alone and old, she still manages to admire life and enjoy everything that she has. She narrated to me her life story and it was really interesting. She has gone to several places already and she can still remember vividly what has happened to each of the places. Wow...., what a memory she also got. Anyways, she wants me to call her Tita Marge. She is 88, I guess. She is a mestiza and she speaks both English and Spanish. Tita Marge really made me ponder on things and I get to learn so many things about life through her. She inspires me to look at the lighter views of life and consider every problem as a blessing. I don't know why she treats me nicely. Maybe because she has long been craving for a daughter. Though she wasn't able to have it, she is still very happy being with her young girl friends, including me, of course. I consider myself very lucky to have her as my "old" friend. Though it was just an unexpected meeting, it was really worth it. She came to me when I badly need someone to talk to and share what I've been keeping inside. See, the timing is really amazing. I think God sent her to me. After our talk, my views towards life, instantly changed. Now, I think I'm stronger and I can handle things on my own. I wish everybody will be able to have the opportunity to meet someone like Tita Marge and get really inspired like me.
