How are you 24 years after Highschool?
My Highschool Annual 1986
Reminiscing High School
I finished highschool at Centro Escolar University Mendiola Manila in 1986. The photo above was from the pages of our Highschool Annual we called the Rosebud. This reminded me that as early as highschool, one of my dreams was fulfilled by being one of the Rosebud staffer. The Idea that I was a part of Rosebud 86 editorial group, still gives me so much excitement, and pride... That as early as highschool "Writing has been a part of me". I am really back now to my old self.... The Maria Cecilia who loves to write....and enjoys turning emotions into words
Years after years
HS Reunion Fever
Highschool reunion ignited this will to look back after all those years. I am very proud of my classmates who remained beautiful in spite of years that added to our age. Classmates who were not able to come in the party but was able to monitor through other social networking site, said we haven't really changed at all.
Here we are after 24 years
How are we
We were only 40 students in our class. At present maybe half of that population are are now residing abroad (Canada, US, Sweden, Indonesia etc), but still keeping in touch....
Those of us who were able to attend our Highschool grand reunion were all okey in our "chosen" fields.,some are married and with kids too., we are not successful though in finding our other classmates but the most important thing is most of us are already connected. We will still try to search on other Escolarinas and with the technology now adays, I believe it is still possible to find them. For now I love to enjoy our renewed friendship
It's like we are highschool students again..
Treasured friends are friends we met during younger days
Because they accepted you at times when you haven't achieved anything yet in your life. They saw you in your ugliest, and witnessed your mood swings and still remained your friends. My highschool friends are my treasure from my jewelry box of friendship. They give me confidence and pride and I am trully proud of them. Until now happy times with them is something that I want to linger...
Singing on stage with a live band
Very Active Highschool life formed me
Whatever talents I have now, I discovered them all during Highschool years and it was then I formed my foundation and strength in doing everything shamelessly (because in highschool you have no choice but to dance, to sing and to act). I became shy and quiet in college, and now in the office where I am presently working, I never performed in any programs or activities. But in our reunion I was one of the most eager to dance and even went up to stage to sing.... looks like I regained that old courage.. I don't always have the confidence to sing as I am confident with writing.
Funny How time flies
Our Classmate Lian, She monitored us through Skype, she's in Canada
HS Friends Anna and Gemma
We may all look happy but we all had our share of difficulties in life, it can be financial, problem with partners, job, family... but I guess, what kept us still beautiful is how we handle or lead our life specially during times of trials and pains... I guess all human beings have thier own ardous paths ahead of them, and it all depends on them on how to pass them with focus on surviving life... and we all have the guidance of God.
