Catch-22 Celebration

I hate new years. Well, I don’t hate-hate it; I just do not love the idea. See, when a new year starts, it signifies that my current age will end as well. Obviously, I do not like growing a year older. Upon reaching 18, I wanted to stop growing older. I was of legal age and let’s leave it at that. But no!

The other reason why I feel miserable on Januaries is because in the recent years, I was never able to decide on what to do for my birthday. When I was younger, bringing loot bags to school makes you an elementary god. Swimming parties and theme parks makes a kid say, “This is the best birthday ever!” Lunch and dinner with the family is a safe bet to celebrate my birthday, but then again, I have been doing that since I’ve started this whole birthday celebration thing. Not to take anything away from them because I am eternally grateful for all the parties and events held in my honor. But it has come to a point where I want to do something unique and different for my birthday.

For the coming weekend, I planned on going up to Baguio but then I realized I won’t have anyone to go up with. I’m still contemplating on whether I should travel by myself. It might actually do some good for me. Or, one of my uncles just offered a certificate for an overnight stay in one of the best resorts here in the country. But I still want to go with people in my age group. Maybe I should do something extreme to make this a memorable one.

What I really want to do though is simple. It’s so simple that it will sound really pitiful. What would really make me happy is a simple date. I just want to spend my birth day eating, hanging out and doing ordinary stuff with someone awesome. But, that’s wishful thinking. I have no one to go out with.

I swear... This will be the last year I will feel this way before and on my birthday. Next year, I’ve been in this world for a quarter of a century. That needs some serious celebrating. I will throw one of the biggest parties that I guarantee people I invite will bow down to the Party God! That is, if I do not have someone to share my birthday with someone, well, awesome! (--,)

Personal Top Ten Songs of 2009

In 2008, I finally succumbed to party tunes and welcomed urban music. That kinda continued to 2009 but my selection consists mostly of pop tunes. They’re mostly singles from chicks, but, who cares? I said personal. I enjoy pop music.

Glee also played a big part on my music last year but since it did not release any original songs, they don’t make the cut!

10. Miley Cyrus - Party In The U.S.A.
The first Miley Cyrus song that is actually good. Listened to it just before the year ended so it still counts, right?

09. Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling
This might be the number one song of the year, so obviously, it’ll show in everyone’s charts. Didn’t really “feel” it that much though.

08. LMFAO feat ‘Lil Jon – Shots
Shots shots shots shots shots... shots shots shots shots shots... shots shots shots shots shots... Everybody!

07. Pussycat Dolls feat A.R. Rahman - Jai Ho
India’s best soundtrack song of 2008 gets a pop makeover from the Pussycat Dolls. This track spawned much love for the Indian culture.

06. Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me
How can you not include Taylor Swift? Seriously, she’s the breakthrough artist of 2009 and you just can’t help but relate to the message of the song.

05. The Fray – You Found Me
The only manly song in my list and might be the soundtrack of my year, if that makes sense.

04. Ke$ha - Tik Tok
Ke$ha will go places in 2010. Trust me. People who brush their teeth with a bottle of Jack always succeed in life. And she’s hot.

03. Keri Hilson feat Kanye West, Ne-Yo – Knock You Down
Might be the most underrated song of 2009. Wait, it does feature Kanye so, snubness accepted! But I still really loved this song.

02. Cobra Starship feat Leighton Meester - Good Girls Go Bad
Blair Waldorf, the Queen Bee herself, sings in this track! Is that not reason enough? And keytarist Victoria Adams also appears in my hottest people in 2009.

01. Paradiso Girls feat Eve, Lil Jon - Patron Tequila
Aria Crescendo. This is a girl that I can totally see myself enjoying with. Oh, right, about the song. It encourages girls to drink tequila and somewhat awesome advertisement for Patron. Why is it number one? Aria Crescendo and it’s about alcohol! Put ya drinks up!ΓΌ

Music for 2010: Mash-ups and Remixes. And more from Glee!

Don’t Stop Being Awesome

I never did!

Happy New Year! Now that my obligatory greeting’s out of the way, I can go about my business of welcoming 2010 with my first hurrah. the word I was looking for last night/year when I felt like I had to write something just before the year ends. Indeed, 2009 was an awesome year and not just because I’m awesome, but like I said, there were lots to be thankful for from the year that just passed.

For 2010, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just take 2010 one day at a time. I will not set any goals since I don’t accomplish them anyways. The Mayan Party God saw light in 2009, and he shall still rule in 2010.

Don’t stop believing... another thing I am not capable, I’m afraid, of not doing! (--,)
