Earlier, I made a short visit to one of my best friends since high school. We had catching up to do and I was seeking solace for I was pissed off with my one true love. Monica gave me that, and I’m happy. Thanks, babygurl. 🙂
While we were talking, of course we brought up the past and a lot of other stuff. We got to talking about our former crushes and friends who just stopped being friends. We reminisced for a while, even went through her photos. I told her I wanted to relive our prom night. She said she missed her long hair and her thinness back then. Of course, we had a talk about our ultimate crushes. HAHAHAHA! Of which we only felt giddiness, up to now. Yes. Ehem, JR, ehem. Haha. We also talked about our, uhm, romances which happened while in college, with high school buddies. Mine were, of course, short-lived. I regret the first one. The second, well, I’m glad it happened. While hers was an on-off thing, it went on for years until it was finally cut. Completely. And here I am, her rock.
Since we talked about our past, we talked about the present. And the future. You can’t talk about one without the other. We miss high school – the carefree days, the friendships we made, and the easiness of it all. We’d like to turn back time for a while. But we also like who we are right now, even though we’re not successful (yet) or have no accomplishments that are mention-worthy (except hers, she’s a cum laude in her university). We didn’t see this coming, and neither did we plan it. But it’s definitely something. We met. and still continue to meet, other people, interesting characters that add color in our lives. We learned lessons that help us shape our decisions. We keep learning, And learning. It’s the only thing we do. And we changed. Drastically, may I add. But we’re still the same.
And here is one of the most wonderful and precious friendships I will ever have. I treasure this. Monica is my rock, too. I’m just glad that we have the ability to keep our friendship. Even though we don’t have the time to always check up on each other, and we might not see each other for a while, we know that we’re friends. And no matter what happens, we’ll always be friends. This is the kind of love that doesn’t consume you, it only nourishes you both. And I’ve told her this before, she is a blessing, a one of a kind. And I’m so happy I have her in my life. 🙂
Cheers to seven years of friendship, babygurl! Be happy!
