My sister

Somehow, still one of the loves of my life... notwithstanding her pretty bad breakup with my twin brother.
I was asked by another of my brother's exes how I could still be so close to Ri... but my relationship with her is distinct from her relationship with my brother. We bonded, and I said it would be forever, and it is. <3

Bon Iver on March 5 in Makati.
M83 on May 4 in Hong Kong.
Fuji Rock (Sigur Ros) from July 22-24 in Niigata.
Radiohead on August 20/21 at Summer Sonic (Chiba)

Then, non-music related right now but who knows what will happen right?
Iceland and Finland with a few of my best friends in November.

So I'm seriously burnt out right now but it looks like there will be so much to make up for it later in the year.
And I need to earn, obviously.

*Edit: when I'm exhausted and feel like scum, even just chatting online with my friends makes me feel much better.

I've been blessed with wonderful friends, but this girl is probably the one who understands me the most.
She who has had the most INSANE things happen to her. One of the few people who has been around even more than I have, and who was brave enough to start traveling on her own while in her teens. This girl, much braver than I am. <3

I miss her.

And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brains fell out through your teeth
Push the pieces in place
Make your smile sweet to see
Don't you take this away

- Neutral Milk Hotel, Two-Headed Boy Part 2

Got sent a reminder on the above this morning by way of a message from an old friend (the wonders of modern technology!)
Realized again that there's really so much suffering that just happens on the inside, and what may seem insignificant to us  may be a big deal to others. Nothing can be taken for granted and there are (almost?) always chances to do good.
Thank God.

Back from a week-long work trip to an IP area in the Philippine Cordillera.
Lost my temper during a meeting with government officials, and felt terrible afterwards, so I asked my best friends if they could meet up tonight when I get back to Baguio City.
Had this for dinner:

Plus talk of both serious and light things.
Everything is so easy when I'm with them.
But then - some of us have known each other since we were 5 years old.. and we've all been best friends since we were 14 years old, which is almost 20 years ago.

I feel loved and blessed.
And now, back to work - have to submit a report tonight.
