Wi-Fi. No I’m not dumb, I know that Wi-Fi is pronounced as “Way-Fay” but us friends are just fond of pronouncing it as “Wee-Fee”. In my professional opinion (if you can call it that), it should be appropriately pronounced as “Way-Fee”; but an entirely different term already owns that pronounciation. Anyway, the subject of Wi-Fi has been brought up because I now lavish in Diliman’s uber-fast Wireless Network courtesy of my bestfriend Lorenz’s laptop. I had a little trouble connecting at first since I didn’t know the proper settings, but a notice posted on the General Reference section helped me through all the way.
Anyways, the title is also apt without pun intended because I’m so happy these days. One of the reasons is the temporary luxury of a laptop, but many other things contribute to this joy.
Unusual Reunion. We gotta stop seeing each other like this. It’s a fulfillinf event but the ambience isn’t right for the occasion. Why do so many reunions happen at the most unexpected places? Like three months ago, Pao, Lorenz and I sorta “reunited” with our “Forum Sessions” after a long drought but the bad thing is, it happened with Lorenz lying in a hospital bed. This time around, my High School Barkada — AbImTuMaPaPeDeSy — had an unusual reunion due to the unexpected death of Dio’s dad (Condolence… +).
The day was monday. Early in the morning while taking a bath I did my usual rounds of thinking (munimuni). I was quite excited but at the same time anxious to go to the wake. It was a long time since I saw my HS barkada, and I had doubts (again) if we would be complete. Add to that the uneasiness with Dio whom I had a score with a few months back (good thing we’re back on track). All these things made me quite reluctant to go, but I did anyway.
We were almost complete, with only By and Peli lacking. I suppose they’re busy with school, so that’s understandable. I sympathize with Dio for the early loss of his dad (only at 56), and I soon realized that was the first and last time I was going to see him. How awkward.
Our HS Barkada had a fair share of kumustahans. I learned there still are certain friction between some of the people in the group, but that’s personal and not group-related at all. I had a chance to play “adviser” once again althoug I don’t think I quite deserve the recognition, but thanks anyway. Only one thing made me quite uneasy that night, but nevertheless I never let it ruin my night.
Anyway I had a blast with my High School barkada. What’s so sad is it’s always me who’s doubting we won’t be complete at a certain occasion (the first time during Lorenz’s birthday; everybody came except me). I miss my High School barkada. Even though we had so many fights within the barkada I still cherish all the time we had as a group. Even if we’re in College now and are all studying in different schools, at least we still manage to meetup every once in a while. Truly, you should really be prudent in picking your friends in High School, for they’re certainly the ones you’re going to keep for life. Thanks AbImTuMaPaPeDeSy!

Weeeeeee ang saya talaga ng buhay. I’m 90% free of heartaches and grudge. Dalawa na lang ang bumabagabag sa’kin ngayon; the first one is not because of me, the second one is all because of me. Haha… yung first one is yung uneasiness ko last Monday.
Ang saya talaga ng buhay, laptop na lang ang kulang! =P (that’s the second one. Hehe!)
