Five days of Rouge
It was all about Red and my friends.
So there’s him. The one that’s been bugging my thoughts. He’s all over there, everywhere.
I have my friends to comfort me when we fight, when I’m bored and when I’ve got some lovin’ to share and I’ve got him.
Even if my mom isn’t in the country to welcome 2012 with us, I am surely blessed to have this kid holding me down (there’s an innuendo there somewhere).
I didn’t really think much of 2012. A lot of guys have come and gone, but I’m happy that I’ve got one that stayed.
We’re still dating with a lot of kinks to work on, but hey, I’m just happy to be with someone this year. What a lucky guy I am to know that it’ll be with someone, hot, smart, intelligent and abso-fucking-lutely awesome in some other stuff. LOL!
So as I welcome the evening (5:55pm) and get ready for my new year’s dinner, I will say farewell to 2011, my 365 challenge “Days To Words” and say that I’ve learned a lot. I will look back at it with a smile and all the things I’ve taken from it. Now, I will say hello to something new, something bright, and to this certain person, a boy in Red.

Playing with Kat’s Vangie!
It sounds like a vagina.
We went to Trinoma then to Megamall to meet Sherlock and Ron.
I shot this! Wohoo!
Okay, and yes, Lock bought an iPad2! You already!

How I spent Christmas day
I went to Malate.

'Cause it's Christmas…
As I reflect on the years that have passed, I’m sure as hell not the person I thought I wanted to be after college. Far from it, but I know that the person I am now and the person I have yet to become are far more interesting people than the man I wanted to be before. Merry Christmas to all!

"I miss you when I’m drunk and when I’m sober. When I’m ecstatic and when I’m despondent. When i"m busy and when I’m lazy. I just always want you here, without your Jesuit sandals."

"You give me the hummingbird heartbeat, you give me wings to make me fly. The taste of your honey is so sweet, when you give me the hummingbird heartbeat."

A new shade of Red
He’s that surprise I wished for.
I was really shocked when he told me that he found me attractive. That’s something that I don’t think I’ll ever get used to hearing.
I’m currently adjusting to being in that exclusively dating stage. Trying to fit my personality to his.
I’m getting there, but it’ll be a lot of work.
He’s absolutely wonderful. I am hopeful.

Becoming an HIV Counselor
This was a pretty tough undertaking. But I did it.
So before one becomes an HIV counselor, people have been telling us that the only way is taking on the advocacy. And that means taking the first step of having oneself tested for HIV.
Given that I work here for one of the leading NGOs working towards HIV and AIDS awareness, prevention and control, I’ve experienced a lot of things in this field. Now I’ve really wanted to become a counselor, but I decided to take the right way to be one.
So I’ve had myself tested. The anxiety of undergoing this nearly killed me. Past that, I’ve also trained under the Basic STI, HIV and AIDS. Then given my work experience, I sent an application letter to DOH and finally qualified to be trained as an HIV counselor.
And as always, I coordinated this training. It is after all my job, even though I’m a participant.
Then the training itself. Gosh! Grueling! All the psychological burden thrown at us is overwhelming. HIV really is such a big thing, a life-changer, and for others, something far too much to bear.
But I made it.
Yey for me! I’m super happy.
