I love Blue! But of course my favorite color is Pink. Haha!
The terrible heat of the sun is really prompting me to wear shorts everyday.
I remember my college days where I used to wear shorts, shirt and slippers only almost everyday. So laid back but super comfy. Sigh.. I should have taken photos of me wearing those stuffs before. Too bad there were no digicams yet during our college years. Hmmmm.. This sounds like i’m so old now?
Just tonight, I was chatting with my bestfriend Sarah and I feel lighter even thou I am not feeling well. She always make me feel better. Promise! Ohhh, got something to share with you. Sarah and I met during our 1st year in College; we were on the same blocked section. We didn’t became friends right away ’cause I have my own circle of friends and she has too. But since we’re just few in our section, we all became close to one another. Sarah and I usually eat together at the canteen. Mind you we bring our own “ba-ons” – soo elementary, right? Everyday she has some slices of cake with her. Her mom and her sister bake cakes everyday and delivers it to schools. So, my dessert is always free! As days, months, years passed by we became really close. We share our stories about our experiences and families. In short, we became the best of friends. Sarah, have seen me in my best and in my worst; she has always been with me in laughter and in tears. There was this time during our college years when we felt like we don’t belong. It’s like we have our own world. We sometime spend our day in our schools’ 100step stairs and just talked and talked while waiting for our next class. We both have this dream of having our own glass truck. A pink glass truck , airconditioned, complete with shower, kitchen and everything – in short our mobile house. We still have that dream thou.
Another nice thing I remember was doing our routine everyday whenever we have classes in UP City campus. We eat at Shakeys in SM Delgado and write what we eat in a tissue paper with some notes about the people around us while we eat.
Sarah never left me even when I was already married. I have sooo many marital problems and she has always… been always my ears. Ask her anything about me and she knows just what to say…
Until such time that Sarah has to leave me.. she finally got married. She has to leave for the US ’cause her husband is based in CA. I was sad but really happy for her. On the day of her flight (leaving iloilo), I went to their house. She’s packed up already. I saw her dressed up and ready. I smiled but I was holding my tears. I can’t imagine my bestfriend leaving so soon. We went to her room and she was choosing what books to bring with her. Yes books..She’s a registered nurse and NCLEX passer too. She passed her board exams and NCLEX without enrolling to review centers. It was just purely self study (really proud me!) So going back, it was really funny but she actually gave me some of her stuffs. I also gave her some of my bags and clothes too.
So, the time is ticking so fast that she has to leave the house. She pulled her bag not knowing that it was still open and so her things fell off. We put it back inside her bag and that was another sad moment for me. I remember Toto JR (Sarah’s older brother) saying, “Ahay mag bestfriend gid kamu.”
Then…she really has to leave. So just bye bye bye bye.
Now Sarah is in CA but will be moving to Miami, FL by the end of this month ’cause she will start working already as a nurse there. I am really happy for my bestfriend. I’m happy for all her achievements, I am happy for her having a very kind and loving husband and of course I am happy for all her countless blessings. I know she deserves all the goodness in life.
I just miss my bestfriend so much. Cheers to 17years of friendship!
I know that each of us have this one person who we really consider our bestfriend. I am just so glad that I have a bestfriend like Sarah.
Oooops! I suddenly smiled and was thinking about the movie, 3 Idiots. Have you seen this movie? Better watch and see how important our friends are.
