Gotta Love Facebook

Old School Picture

One of my old classmates (James) from elementary school (Saint Francis, Las Pinas) posted this photo on Facebook. That’s me on the very right. I think I was Logan’s age (about 8 or 9 years old) in this picture.

I believe this was the year we learned Basic programing and really started coding. James and I were pretty competitive and would try to outdo each other. I guess I have always had competitive tendencies. Today, it’s racquetball and poker. Back then, I wanted to be on the winning patintero and siato teams. I wanted to get the farthest in Legend of Kage and other video games. Even though I was short, I always tried my hardest to win at 10-20 and Chinese garter. Of course, I had to stop playing 10-20 and Chinese garter in 5th grade because that’s when my period started. When you are dalaga, it’s not so proper to be so bugoy anymore. Instead we just played volleyball. I never got to be as good as Pia or Eloi or Ging or Cel or Jane. Actually, I was never really any good at it but I always did my best and it was always a lot of fun. I still played video games on the Nintendo Family Computer, though. Basic programming was a lot of fun too. I really thought I was going to be computer programmer or software engineer like dad. I guess I just wasn’t cut out for that stuff.

I just love Facebook because it allows you to reconnect with old friends and schoolmates. And then they post pictures from lifetimes ago. The pictures bring back fond memories. It’s fun to look back. Those were the days…
