Reminiscing About Old Times

Posted on April 3, 2010 by under Family, Flickr, Life.    

As you know, I’ve been scanning and digitizing some old photos. Brian said I can can’t keep them anymore (they’re considered clutter) so I’ve been saving them on my Flickr where they will live forever (or until Flickr goes belly up, which I hope never happens because I have almost 30,000 photos on Flickr and it will be a catastrophe to have to transfer them elsewhere).

Here’s a couple of pictures I wanted to share with you all to show that I’m more than just a nerd with a computer, I’m someone’s daughter, someone’s friend, and a multifaceted human being too.


This is a photo of my mom and I at an one of my grade school graduations at Saint Francis of Assisi College in Las Pinas (Philippines). She’s giving me a medal because I graduated with honors. Woot! Woot! Go me! I’ve always been a nerd, ever since I was young. LOL.

My friends didn’t seem to mind either because there were still friends with me, despite my obvious nerdiness (hey, there were some perks such as getting to take home quizzes to grade – LOL).


The reason I’m not in my school uniform at the graduation is that my barkada and I performed at the ceremony. I loved to dance (still do) and we performed every chance we got. LOL.

Judging from our outfits in this picture, my guess would be this was a dance performance to the tune of Together Forever (by Rick Astley). We used to love that song because it held great meaning for us. We were always the “friends forever” types and we thought our barkada would be “together forever” also.

Now we’re living in various parts of the world. I’d lost touch with a few of them (Pia is the one I’d been in contact with the most; she actually came to our wedding and was one of my bridesmaids) over the years, but now we’ve reunited through Facebook. Gotta love social networking!
