Five to go.
Here’s to 2012 and all that it brings—happy new year!
While trying to make a mental outline of this year–in–review post, I figured I could’ve simply not blogged the whole year and crammed all of my stories in one entry—and no one would’ve noticed. I guess that’s my 2011 way of saying “I’m such a delinquent blogger”.
So there I went, I clicked every post I published in 2011. Then came the realization that I just winged it most of the time, posting photos more frequently than writing. And the few times I wrote, it was about losing something.
I wouldn’t have imagined that the Philippine Azkals would get the chance to play a friendly with a prestigious international club like the L.A. Galaxy this soon in their steady rise to success—and neither would I have thought I’ll be shooting their match as they put up a good fight against a team led by the world’s most famous footballer.
I’ve yet to mention on this blog (because I don’t blog!) that I’ve been working for the PCIJ for several months now, handling web–related matters and other tech–related things. It took me time to finally join one of our beyond–the–office activities, and this was it—the second year anniversary of the Maguindanao Massacre. It was also the first International Day to End Impunity, dedicated to the one of the darkest day in our history.
Two years have passed and none of those responsible have been found guilty of their gruesome crime. And all we could do right now is to keep our hopes high, our voices loud, our pleas strong—for justice.
