There’s a saying “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are” is not true with me and my friends. We are very diverse group of people but what binds us together is our friendship that started when we were freshmen in University of Sto. Tomas.
Until now, I’m still at awe how we have managed to be friends this long. Each and every one of us has his/her own barkada/drinking buddies/go-to party friends but once there is someone in need in our circle, we are always with full force to help. After college, we only get to meet up twice a year, during Malou’s birthday every September and Christmas. But last Christmas, I volunteered to organize it and we made a pledge that we’ll see as often as possible which led to two get together early this year.
Everyone was in agreement that we SHOULD see each other as often as possible. Our get togethers are always filled with tears of laughter and I end up not eating ‘coz I can’t stop laughing. During these get togethers we talk about every thing under the sun — relationships, work, kids, dating, sex (or the lack thereof!) hahaha… see what I mean?
These girls have been there for me — my first boyfriend, first heartbreak, John’s wedding proposal, my pregnancy. They have been very supportive with what I do and gives me advice whenever I need it. In our group, each of us has her/his go-to person. For me its, Joiegirl.
She’s been my confidant and defender. My shopping partner and baghag conspirator. There are times that she says some things that totally out of whack but I understand her completely. I understand her point of view that none of our group can totally grasp. When she was studying in Shanghai, she went back to Manila for 2 weeks to attend our wedding.
Having friends like them is a blessing. They make my life colorful and meaningful.
What a diverse group picture here. Some married, soon-to-married, single, workaholics, OC, uptight, relaxed people. My circle of friends is a hodge podge of traits and moods. How about yours?
