hangin' on

had a quick ym with my high school bestfriends and i realize how much i miss talking to them like we used to. we would talk for ours on end thinking about anything from trivial to mundane and the ideal. we used to hang out at their place or at dunkin donuts in our city...or at starbucks 6750 or in glorietta...or in seattle's best katip...even in starbucks ayala-cebu...often we'd wonder how soon can we meet up and talk some more maybe in starbucks new york or wherever part of the world our wanderlust nature can take us to.

me and my best buds go way back. lala and i have been classmates since grade school...sugar and i knew each other since freshmen high school. we've been inseparable since. and we've shared most if not all our life stories together. thus sharing something to them even after a long time of not havin kept in touch is but so easy. we don't really need to explain much. we just understand each other. and it just never fails to comfort me.

in times of dire need we often find ourselves seeking comfort in the complexity of things. we prefer losing ourselves in everything complicated if only to drown ourselves and hopefully not hear the ramblings inside us. the past days i've found myself seeking comfort in my gadgets, my loud music, or the internet. i seek refuge in reading about other people's lives. drowning myself in their own complex stories. well and good. but it only stirred me away from myself. i failed to listen to the voices inside me.

talking to my friends makes me look back at where i came from. how i came to be. and they let me keep in touch with myself better. i learn that we are currently going into the same crises. that of knowing where to go, what to do with our lives. it's always a relief to have close people with you as you journey on.

yeah, am just getting senti once again. but am just really grateful for my friends and to everyone i have here with me. whether they are near or far. :)


  1. you're lucky that you get to talk to your bestfriends till now, my two bestfriends are both working abroad (we seldom talk now) and i miss them so bad especially on my down moments. i have my husband to share my sentiments and thoughts but friends gives us a different feeling of relief. honestly? inggit ako.

  2. am so grateful too, Len. but then don't be have hubby beside you din naman. ;)
