Rewind then Fast Forward

I was looking through our pictures awhile ago. Me and my high school friends, you see, went out last weekend. I need a time off from med books and decided to meet them after eons (just kidding, maybe yeah, a year or half, sorry ako ng busy).

“We grew up so fast” I told myself and smiled as I browsed our pictures. And then it got me thinking about relationships, our relationships… our unconventional relationships. We may not be like our batch mates; getting married, settling down, and having kids.

When we were in high school, I remember someone told me “all the good ones are taken, so hurry”. Pathetic as it may sound, admit it, having a relationship in high school, aside from having those academic achievements was essential. Maybe it’s part of fitting in or having an identity? (sorry that’s what I view life then, so don’t judge me)

But now that we’ve matured a little, we have different takes; it’s not just having relationships. It’s not just satisfying what you need, to love and be loved, cause there are different types of relationships. Unlike our batch mates having those traditional relationships, me and my friends still believe in fairytales, the unwritten type of ones though, like a princess falling in love with another princess, a prince to another, a princess torn between two prince, a prince who’s still enjoying his single life and will have a relationship when the right one comes, a princess marrying a rockstar, a princess living far away from his prince, a prince loving an eccentric princess and a prince who’s new to a new kingdom, is still learning but can finally say have a direction because of someone.

I bet to one of my friends last weekend, who among us will get married soon. And we laughed.

We have different takes, but as long as we believe into something (and that is love no matter how odd it is) and most importantly is to be happy.

Kyle said...

Nasan yung a princess loved a frog.lol
I agree dun sa sinabi mo na academics and dagdag ko narin yung mga achievements natin sa buhay ay essentials lang sa ating buhay but then nabubuhay tayo para makamtan natin ang tunay na kaligayahan.

Marami na akong nakita at nakikitang tao na successful, mayaman, etc but then hindi sila masaya. Hindi sila satisfied. Dahil still they need someone to be there for them. Hindi mo talaga maihahambing ang nabibigay ng isang taong nagmamahal sayo against sa mga bagay na materyal. Although napakausual na nitong linyang ito pero ang dami paring nabubulag dito...

Leo said...

sana may prince loving a prince din sa barkada mo. hahaha. joke lang doc! baka ung wedding bells na susunod sa yo na doc.

kaaliw mag-reunion with highschool friends talaga. :)

Kamila said...

ang ganda nung sinabi mo na iba't ibang story ng fairytales na hindi pa nsusulat...

at dati hindi ko napapansin na ang pagkakaroon ng kaibigan ay parang identity.. pero ngayon parang naiisip ko na parang ganun din paniniwala ko...

---This is somehow true! hahaha

pero yeah, I believe in Magic more than fairytales. Last year, I was in a hurry, but nung nag abroad ako, biglang nagbago isip ko! hehehe

There are more to life than lovelife! lol

c - e - i - b - o - h said...

it's just so nice to see old friends and talk of the things na ginagawa niyo dati, to compare thoughts before and now.. and the best part of it, you'll all see how mature you've become but nonetheless, some things ain't changing still... hehehe

my-so-called-Quest said...

@kamila - hehe. salamat :D siguro partly may identity ang isang grupo pero syempre unique pa rin ang bawat isa.

@buendiaboy - is it? hehe

@sean - salamat sean. ikaw alam naman nating sagana ka sa Vday. hehehe

@ceiboh - haha. nakakatuwa, some even refuse to grow. haha.

daniel said...

Hi doc! I wish and hope a fairytale ending to all! I believe we all deserve a fairytale ending. its just that we have to be realistic to have that fairytale ending. hehe .

KikomaxXx said...

ay ikaw ba dokie eh gusto ng magsettle down..w ahehhe

poot said...

I don't think that having a girlfriend was essential when I was in HS. Tho I had my first (& hopefully not the last) girlfriend when I was in my senior year. Sakit lang yun sa ulo! XD

We and my mates this college made an agreement that if whoever settled down first, he/she must pay us 5K each. Hahaha.

Nishiboy said...
