I may not write a lot about this group of girls I used to see a lot of in college, but we did have a lot of good times together -- considering how we spent most of the Maginhawa years living practically next door to each other, hehe. Looking back at all that, I sometimes wonder if I ever did spend any time actually studying in college, considering the amount of time I spent smoking/getting drunk/hanging out/talking with/etc with all these fantastic people haha. :) Oh man, my lost youth.
Here be a photo of that grand reunion, courtesy of Edz's birthday/housewarming on Sunday:
|Warming up Edz's new pad: L-R Pogo, Jaycee, Rida, Edz, Ice, Me, Drea. Thanks to Rex (a.k.a. the new Wikileaks haha) for taking this photo! :)|
(More photos, reminiscences under cut!)
And yes, since then it has been a sort of hobby-slash-tradition, dressing up whenever we're together. Christ, the things I agree to do for these girls haha! As with all classic reunions, the most memorable things are the ones I either do not have photos of, or the photos that exist are not really for public consumption. Haha. What in the world.
|You know you're kinda getting old when there are PHOTO ALBUMS LIKE THIS in your reunions. Hahaha. Oh my God, is that my gradpic? Christ.|
|This photo cannot be explained.|
On a more serious note, I remember how these girls were among my pillars of strength in college -- my move to Maginhawa marked a rather adventurous time, and that's a supreme understatement. I started going out late more, drinking more, getting heartbroken more (haha, oh man, all too careless) and all these things I never really got to do when I was under curfew in my old boarding house.
I remember staying up nearly 24 hours surviving only on cigs and coffee and coke and kariman from MiniStop watching Edz and Jeri (should've been in this reunion, if you ask me) finish their thesis; and I can't really forget that time I spent an entire afternoon just sitting on Edz's bed with a cigarette in one hand and tissue in the other after a rather harrowing fight with that girl during that first year after college. It felt nice, living beside someone who you know has your back. We don't see each other all too often these days, but I love how we can get together like this and it's like the years between didn't really happen and we're only picking up from practically yesterday. It's amazing.
So yeah, the next time we see each other... well. I'll be better prepared. Haha. I love these crazy girls so hard. Also: i-project nga natin nang maayos ang summer outing next year! (LOL gaganti lang, para lahat tayo may photos in various states of undress? HAHA.)
