Thus begins the actual longest year of my life!
Cebu, Philippines, has begun the new year, the year that seemed so absurdly far away when I first considered it that it felt as though it would never come… 2020.
The music was actually really great at the celebration here at the hotel, and we all kind of fell in love with these two songs called “I love Cebu”.
My brother kept calling, unintentionally, the adorable little boy an approximation of the Japanese word for “tuna”, instead of his actual yet similar name.
We all talked and played and then, just after midnight, danced on the beach.
It was a good night, and now I am beyond ready to pass out, hard core.
Akemashite omedetou, everyone – I wish you all a happy new year.
