The year 2008 in pictures

This year was particularly beautiful and blessed for me. From growing new and old friendships, seeing family from the Philippines, singing with the chorus in Miami, and even experiencing the unbelievably spiritual and life-changing College Summit workshops at USC and North Carolina.

There’s a ton to be thankful for this year. Remember when that jerk hit and totaled my car? Or when I went on vacation in Hawaii by myself? I nearly forgot till I saw the pictures.

This year was also the year of the Marriage. I attended five weddings from May to November, and also got a glimpse of how some Californians felt about gay marriage from the passage of Proposition 8. How fitting it was then, that I got to attend my first gay wedding–Erwin and Coy’s. Although their wedding wasn’t as traditional or filled with bells and whistles like the other straight weddings I went to (like Shanif and Chris’s in Cancun, which was off the hook!), Erwin and Coy’s will always have a special place in my heart because of the meaning and the possibility it opened up.

The journey has been a winding, yet fruitful one this year. Happy birthday to me, and Merry Christmas to all! I’m extremely excited to see what 2009 will have in store.
