January 6th of 2005 was supposedly an unfortunate day. One of the worst things that could happen to an almost teenage girl is to be separated from her friends. On that day, I was supposed to share a room with my close friend on our Retreat. However, she got switched with someone else. Someone whom I thought was a complete opposite of me. Even though we’ve been in the same school starting from the time I learned what a crush is, I didn’t really got the chance to talk to her. I was certain that I’ll have the worst two nights, but when we finally got the chance to be inside the room, chaching. I got my best friend (thankyou tortillas) :)
She was the first person that convinced me to open up about myself; she was the first person that I talked to about my childhood “relationship” problem (HAHAHAHA). Years went by and I still find myself telling her more than that. From two people who got completely opposite character, I can assure you that we have A LOT in common now (*wink*)
We’ve been through a lot, individually. There was also a time that our relationship was tested. But through that comes a somewhat mother-daughter relationship I surely know will last a lifetime. I know that there were and are a lot of things she doesn’t understand about me and my decisions but that doesn’t make her love me less. She almost always doesn’t agree with me but what she never fails to do is accept me. Our life has grown from petty talks to “future” talks; to childhood heartbreaks to really painful ones.
To Gra, Xia, Bheszt, Gracia, Nay - HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This year will be one of the greatest year we would have, especially you. Lamoyan. Hahaha! You’re probably the epitome of living life to the fullest that’s why I don’t worry about you kung san ka man mapunta. When life gives you lemon, you buy tequila! Di man tayo magkita ng one decade, I know na pag nagkita tayo, parang tayo pa rin yung nandun sa kwarto natin sa Retreat house. Thank you sa patuloy na pagpukpok sa ulo para lang maintindihan ko ang mga bagay bagay. Sus, sasabihin mo sana tinext ko nalang ‘to. Pero sweet ako kaya ganyan :”> You’ll always be one of the few people I’ll surely see on my senior citizen years. Di na’ko magddrama pa. Basta magkikita tayo soon! Love you forever Nay! Ikaw lang ang nakapagpasakay sakin sa space shuttle ng walang pilit! Forever Young!
