Of things I love to do and "lost" friendships

Okay, I think I’m done with my share of work for today. I’ve finished one module in our freelance project in Flash a while earlier, and now I’m about to send it to my workmate/former thesismate Micko to do the debugging. This is what happens when your groupmate gets a job and you don’t and you have a pending freelance project with them: you get stuck with putting it together and they get to do the debugging. Then again, debugging is bloodier, so I’m okay with this. :P Haha.

But believe it or not, I’m actually enjoying programming. I know that I sometimes complain about these things and how they make my brain feel like mush, but I actually do like to program. Call me geeky and all, but I like the challenge. :) I just realized that I actually like being able to solve complicated programming problems and finding ways on how to make a long string of code shorter and faster. :-B I guess all the four years being in Computer Science paid off, eh? Now if only I could learn to love Java, I bet I’d be able to work in any company I want. Haha, right. ;)

And speaking of things I love doing, I finished my second NaNoWriMo novel last weekend. :) I don’t know why I forgot to blog about it, but apparently, I did. ^^; The novel’s title is A Page is Turned, which talks about the life of two best friends, Isaac and Rebekah, who are seemingly destined to be with each other — or are they? It’s actually more of a friendship story than a love story, but I really love the twist I put at the ending. :P It’s probably my most creative story yet. It still has to undergo some editing, and I’ll post a preview of it in my Writings page.

I have my next novel in mind already, and I’m having fun imagining the main character her quirks. My genre for this year would be chicklit, much thanks to all Christian chicklit I just finished reading. :) I still have to figure out my character’s main conflict but I have time. I don’t want it to be a typical story, you know, like weight loss and if the character needs to take metabolism booster pills — I want something deeper. I think I’m going to really enjoy writing this one. :) Haha, bring it on, NaNo 2006! Hopefully this time I could get it published at Lulu. :D

I was bloghopping a little while earlier, trying to spy on my friends’ lives while I wait for my upload to finish. ;) While jumping from one blog to another, I chanced upon an old friend’s blog. Or, should I say ex-friend? *sigh* It’s been two years since the big “fight” that more or less officially broke our friendship. It’s been more than two years since we last laughed together…and until now I can’t see any signs of seeing that happening again.

I’ve never had a fight with someone for this long already and as much as my selfish side wants to blame her, I know that I’ve got just as much to blame here as well. It’s just sad that I let it last this long. :( Or rather, we let it last this long.

I still pray and wait for the day that we will be able to bring our friendship back, or at least, start over. I’ve forgiven and let go of whatever happened to the two of us already; I just pray that she can do the same for me. *sigh*

In time, Tina. In God’s perfect time.

I’m gonna go fix myself late dinner, and watch some of our teleseryes. :P Sa Piling Mo, here I come! :P
