Vacation Idyllic–Over.

I haven’t been able to think of anything decent to write at all for the past two months or so, reason unknown (I do have an idea though). So, why have I chosen today to make an effort to return? Well, I guess that having school looming over my head made me think about whether my vacation was actually worth it (don’t worry, I will expound), and maybe also because I was sick of not being able to write (in fact, I’m fighting the urge to stop writing now, but if I give in I’ll probably never get to writing because I want to again).

So, the vacation. It was pretty much worth it because I spent the greater part of it doing something, whether it be playing computer (further divided into bonding with my cousins through Call of Duty 4 or improving my Dark Crusade skills) or Wii, reading, attending family gatherings or getting stuff for free (it’s Christmas, after all), thereby avoiding the boredom that seemed to plague so many other people. At the same time though, I took some steps to becoming less crappy a person (an example would be actually giving gifts to some of my friends, although I’m not yet done with that).

The vacation wasn’t worth it at the same time either, because I guess I didn’t really do anything worthwhile, having spent most of my time loafing around (although the kickboxing was good). I didn’t really go anywhere (well, there was San Pablo, but technically that was still part of school) or do anything new (I did have plans to do new stuff, but they mostly fell apart or got put off to summer), with this vacation being focused on relieving all the stress that had built up during the past three quarters of classes (…so I guess the vacation was worth it after all).

Now, about school? So many other people are pretty negative about it, but I’m proud to say I’m not one of them. Sure I’m a little apprehensive about it (it’s not easy going back to the drudgery of classes after a few weeks of putting school out of your head), but it doesn’t mean I’m wishing our vacation was longer. I’ve pretty much consigned myself to the fact that school starts tomorrow and won’t let up until March (hopefully before my birthday), so I’m not really wishing for more vacation–instead I’m hoping to do a whole lot better this quarter compared to the previous three (having more or less flushed my need to slack off out of my system, I’m reasonably confident I can stay on track), because the first two quarters were disappointing and I don’t know about the third quarter grades yet. At any rate, my mindset for the fourth quarter is more or less the mindset I picked up from my tito:

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Doesn’t mean I haven’t lost my remarkable sense of humor, though, as proven by the fact that I can still laugh at this video:

I forgot to mention another good effect of the vacation: it looks like I can write again.
