High School Confidential

Coffee nightouts with Biboy may probably be bad for my disposition. Nah, of course not. It’s just that, sure it brings back all the good memories, but it kinda makes me think what the hell I’ve been doing in that span of six years after graduating from high school.

Our batch was famous for notoriety. The school administration was literally jumping for joy and shouting out praises when our batch finally left the halls of our beloved den. Nevertheless, I am very proud of that batch. Sure, we were known to be troublemakers and lower batches are probably intimidated from us--but I would classify our transgressions as “organized crime.” Hahaha. Yes we wreaked havoc but with definite finesse and sophistication, and mind you, no one got totally hurt. Our teachers never dreaded teaching our batch, au contraire, they have fun trying to control us. Pointless, really.

It’s the second time this month last night that me and Biboy met up for late night coffee. And like typical high school kada get-togethers, exchange of stories doesn’t really change. Topics of our conversations are basically the same but we never get tired of hearing of it. We still laugh at that one particular instance and we still remember how we felt on that disappointing soiree. Loads of stories, actually, and my role in the kada was to document and remember everything.

Now, to my point. All this talking made me curious as to what my batch mates are now up to. So, through the wonders of 20th century technology, Friendster actually, I looked up old friends and classmates. Good thing we have our own batch account so checking up on them wasn’t really that hard. And the common denominator? 90 percent of them are “in a relationship.” You know, their primary photos are images of them with their respective significant other in their most sweetest and mushiest posing they could muster. Good, huh? Yes, of course. I am very happy that they are happy. The thing that kinda bummed me is that those kids that we made fun of back then are getting seriously “lucky.” Karma, you might say, whilst I say it’s my pihikan-ess that explains why my primary photo is a solo one. Again, not complaining; just bummed. And I found out that at least 15 of my batch mates are now settled down and got kids of their own. Now, that’s worth mentioning and definitely not something to be envious about. Haha!

Still believe that get-togethers are a mistake? Heck no! I look forward for more. And the next time, I hope the whole gang’s present. And this idea might become a reality sooner than they think. There’s another Star Wars movie that’s about to be shown next month and we have this tradition and pact that we need to honor! Yay! (--,)

High school batchmates ko rin, yung iba pamilyado na. I don't envy them at all. Yung isa lumobo talaga, nanay na nanay na ang itsura. =p

I only know as much when it comes to my high school classmates and friends. But based on their social networking profiles, some of them are indeed happily settled down. But like you, I don't have that on my mind yet.

Next year will be the 10th year since we left our HS alma mater. I hope somebody plans a reunion. B-)

not to sound like my usual mean self, but i did not see a lot of "lucky" people out there. :)


but i hate primary pics of people making out with each other. those things disgust me to no end. it's like you have make-out privileges, i get it. there's no need to display it on the internet.

Keem: Hehehe. Nakakagulat nga eh. Well, technically, expected na yun but still knowing na nagkatotoo na..Haha!

Kads: Yep..its not something to be envious about. I'm happy for them but am very contented with my current state. Single and free. Nyahaha! Wow 10 years. Sana nga me reunion. Andito ka pa nun? Ahahaha.
