Hey guys! Having a great 2013? Well, I hope you are. :)
Anyway, I don’t know what got into me the past few days. I’ve been looking at pictures and videos way back from high school. Let’s just say that I’ve been walking down memory lane.
High school, for me, was one of the best moments of my life. I think because I chose the right school or maybe I was just blessed to have amazing batch mates but seriously, the teachers at my high school are really friendly and very understanding. It really feels like they are our second parents. Whenever we have problems in our batch, they are there to put some sense into us and to guide us in doing what is right. I’m not advertising anything here but I’m proud to say that I chose the right school, a school who values friendship and camaraderie. I’m proud to have come from Colegio San Agustin – Bacolod. I’m proud to be an Augustinian. :)
In my school, every batch has a name of their own. They can change this every year and that’s what the higher years have been doing but not us. We picked a name and we stick with it. (We are the Piranhas, small but incredible. Oh yeah!) The lower years then did the same, choosing only one name for the rest of their high school lives. So I guess I can say that that was our legacy.
During my journey back then, of course, I have met a lot of people. I’ve been with different groups of people in my first two years of high school. I guess you can say that I had the so-called “identity crisis” that most teens are dealing with. I love all my friends but I just don’t feel 100% comfortable when I’m with them, only 80%-90% comfortable but that changed when I reached my third year because I was reunited with my longest best friends ever! Jana and Maria. The three of us go way back in grade school. We have been best friends for 8 years and counting but this time, it’s not just the three of us anymore because now, there’s LeiLei, Katty and PauPau and we call ourselves the PaJaMa KaReLei (PAuJAnaMAria KAttyREenLEI) together with our Fruit Court Family. It feels great to have friends who understands me and doesn’t get tired of my dramas (mostly concerning what food I should buy lol), friends who are true to me and who doesn’t backbite me, friends who will always stand by me no matter what status of life I am in, friends who are always there through thick and thin, friends who will defend me from people who can’t see my worth. I truly am blessed by God for he has given me these beautiful people whom I can count on anytime even if it’s in the middle of the night and with that, I thank you Lord.
If you ask me what event I loved the most during high school, I have to say our graduation day. I cried really hard that day so why choose that particular event? It’s because it was a time where all of us sent our prayers and wishes to the heavens by sending out blue balloons. Seeing those balloons drift far away made me think that no matter what road each of us take, we would all still, one day, end up at one place. All we have to do now as that day still hasn’t arrive is to stay in touch with each other and never forget about each other.
This is a tribute video made by Katty for everyone in our batch who accepted her. Also, you can see some pictures of when we sent blue balloons up in the sky. :)
