The other day while rummaging through my mom’s belongings looking for an ID of her, I stumbled upon a very unsuspecting notepad. It was colored yellow and something in it told me that I’ve seen it before. With utmost curiosity I flipped the notepad open and it all came flashing back. I did see it before, and it was my mom’s journal. I flipped some more and found out that there were entries I haven’t read the first time I saw it. (I know it’s kind of an invasion of privacy but still, you don’t leave those things lying around in the house if it’s really that private. Hehe.) I read all the entries and one of them almost made me cry: It was one of two entries about me. She wrote it on the day of my birthday, and it went something like this:

Birthday ni Jomar. 17 na pala ang batang yun! Ang bilis ng panahon. I could still remember the first time the nurse put him beside me on the hospital bed. He had a smile on his face at sabi ng nurse very rare daw yun sa mga babies.

Awwww… well how’d you know?! Baby pa lang pala ako palangiti na. Hehe…

Another nostalgic sentiment I stumbled upon is our High School website. I didn’t know it’s still alive up to this day. Anyway, I visited it and read all the crazy things I put in there. That site was such a frustration of mine because it never officially launched and there isn’t much to read. That’s partly due to the fact that I’m quite lazy and partly due to the fact that I didn’t get along well with most of my High School classmates and doing them a favor by maintaining the site isn’t much of a good idea for me at that time. Some appreciated the gesture, though, while some refused to cooperate. It was, arguably, my first major project and I didn’t even bring it to a lift. Pffft. Memories. I hate my pictures then, though. I was so much fatter before.

Here’s the URL just in case you feel like dropping by (the layout’s totally messed up thanks to the free space provider):
