I had a great time last Saturday because me and two of my college buddies finally meet up again after almost two years. It was a perfect time for me to relax and unwind. As a mom of three, I seldom go out with my friends. I actually had tight schedules but meeting up with these two girls was something I couldn’t miss. And so after two months of planning and yanking the rest of our group members to join, it was just the three of us who had fun.
Best Night with my College Buddies
We decided to have exchange gifts just to add more excitement to our reunion and to have the spirit of Christmas with us. We met at Eastwood City Libis and dined at T.G.I. Friday’s. We talked about anything, looked back at the times when we were in college. How we all struggled together just to be what and where we are now. We studied in a government subsidized university and we couldn’t help but be amazed at how much we paid for our tuition fee during that time. Imagine, for a whole semester we would only pay more or less Php500. We were lucky enough if we could get a little “kupit” from our parents way back then.
Gifts for Exchanging
College days were financially tough for all of us but we all managed. We didn’t care if our classmates wore the latest fashion outfit or if they have cellphones. We were contented to spend our break times chatting on our school ground or inside the canteen sharing our own homemade lunch packed in take-out boxes. It was a bliss for us just to be together.
My buddies are still both single but they are enjoying their career. It would be much fun for me if our “other” friend made it last Saturday since we were both married and we could exchange topics about marriage and parenthood. We talked about them being single instead while I shared few ups and downs of being married. As a friendly advice, I told them to just enjoy their current status because once they got married, it will be a whole lot different.
I’ll be looking forward for another night like this girls!
Though one of our friend really loved to be with us, she just couldn’t because she’s in Germany. And so as per her request, we captured lots of photos for her viewing. And I believed she enjoyed our pictures. We had coffee afterwards at Starbucks courtesy of the highest earner among the three of us lol!
We parted ways with big smiles on our faces and with high hopes that someday, we will all be complete and those girls who didn’t make it would also exert some effort to be reunited with us.
” Friendship is not how long you’ve been together, not how much you’ve given or received, not how many times you’ve helped each other, but it’s how u “value” one another. “
