Okay, I am not sure if people will (immediately) find out about this new entry because of my new blog layout. (That is not yet fixed!) But yeah, this is my first (mema) entry for the year 2018! Disclaimer: There is nothing to be nervous or scared about.. wala lang ito. #MemaEntry
So before anything else, let me greet all of you a very happy New Year! I hope you guys had a great time during the holidays, and I hope you were able to eat lots without any restriction or guilt! Minsan lang naman eh, diba… echos!
So I was looking for an old photo (circa 2012 to be specific) because I wanted to try this “Post an old and a present photo” thing on Facebook and see how much you have changed blah blah blah. Unfortunately, I do not have my old photos on my phone. (I don’t like copying files from my old phone to the new one because I won’t get the bago-yung-phone-ko feels, that’s why.) So anyway, since my Facebook got hacked 2 years ago and I failed to retrieve it, I was thinking where to get some old photos. Pinagisipan ko pa talaga. Then I realised I own a blog, since 2011. (Duh?) So I went to my old blog, the one registered on WordPress.com, then started browsing through. (I am also actually doing it now) I am not sure if all of my entries from 2011-2014 were transferred to this blog though, but they are all supposed to be here at mainemendoza.com. ??? Anyway, it makes me happy and a bit sad looking back on my life as a teenager– as a college student. I know I say this a lot, but I really miss how often I write back then. I miss how I write about random things like: a boring day at home; random day out with friends; the joy of purchasing The Sims; having my braces removed; finding a new song; sharing motivational quotes I found on Google, etc. And I love how I can write so much about a trivial topic. Writing used to be a priority back then; posting an entry was my weekly goal. I really enjoyed writing and narrating stories kahit na wala naman ng kwenta mga pinagsasabi ko. I just miss sharing random life happenings to my non-existent blog readers. (Charot, parang may tatlong readers naman ata ako. Lol!)
I miss those days! And looking at our (barkada and family) photos and seeing how much we have changed! Mga totoy at nene! Also, I get to remember my life as a student thru my blog posts; like failing to enlist my subjects on time; working on a school project; making it to the dean’s list etc. Nakakamiss ang mga panahong pumapasok ako ng naka-corporate attire! I don’t know if you know, but I am super makakalimutin! So I really have to write down the things I do not want to forget. Like you can open up to me and tell me your secrets, give it a week, and poof! It became Koko Krunch! (Oo, yung sikreto mo naging cereal) Selective retention, maybe? O talagang makakalimutin lang?
Anyway, here’s the thing I was telling you about.
From cave man..
…to cave woman.
Lol, that’s a somewhat decent throwback photo! Mukha na akong babae diyan with my short hair, but in reality, shibolibambam ang aurabels! (Mukha pa din namang shiboli sa 2017 photo, naka two piece lang ang ati mo, este koya. Charot!)
Anyway, I am curious! I wanna see some throwback and present photos of you guys! I am just not sure if it’s possible to leave a photo comment below– or if you want to expose your faces to the public– but if you are not ashamed to reveal some throwback pics, upload them and tag me on Twitter or Instagram! Tama na kakahalukay ng j3j3 phOtoS ni #cUtiEmHaiNe03, it’s your turn this time! 😛
By the way! Crowdsourcing: Does any of you know someone who creates blog layouts? I still want to modify the current one because it looks so plain to me. Gusto ko yung may pa-emeng konti. Lol if you know someone please let me know! Mention me on Twitter! Thanks!
That’s it for today! My first random blog post this 2018! Wala ng proof read proof read, lol! Here’s to another year full of surprises and new experiences!
