High school was a blast, and I doubt anyone would contest that. On my case, I practically did nothing but travel around the country competing in various tilts (mostly writing and quiz bees). I didn’t even care about my grades then. I felt like I can get away with anything, kaya pwede pang pumetiks.
Parang sagabal ang studies sa love life, when it should be the other way around. And now I’ll be spilling the beans, hoping that they won’t bite me in the ass kasi high school pa kami nung huling magkita. They were practically kids back then running around without underwear. Nyehe, peace!
Speaking of kids, I was in second grade nung una akong nagka-crush. I’m not sure if she knew back then, though it was kind of obvious. Dahil para syang manika nun, trip na trip ni fellow classmate Ruben makipagrambulan sakin. Karibal nya daw ako kay Jhing kaya kelangan namin syang pag-awayan. (Ang haba ng hair ni Jhing, pakiparga!) But not until fifth grade, when I kicked his then-fat ass in a MILO-sponsored taekwondo tournament.
But then high school came, and my sight was fixed on my biggest crushes– Myra and Abigail. They’re like two of the top three reasons why I went to school as often as I can.
As much as I’d like to post Myra’s photo here, I can’t because as far as I can remember she isn’t the biggest fan of social networking sites or even socialization in general. She was more of the cuddler, and I remember her fondness sa paghaplus-haplos ng tenga ko– habang natutunaw akong parang yelo. We were in the same campus journalism team kaya parang baliw yung classmates ko at nya pag nagsusunduan kami for the training. Abigail was Myra’s bestie, kaya pag magkasama silang dalawa sa iisang kwarto ay nagliliyab ang buong school.
Dami ko pang crush nun, marami din sa kanila ngayon e wasted. I would also have screwed Rieza, Jocelyn, Yani, Fym, Chiarra, Tressiani, Hannah, Melinda, Kristine, Hayden, Gwen, Laidee, Decevy, Lendie…and pretty much everybody else. But I didn’t, good boy ako e!
Damn, pag nagkamilagrong nagbabasa na ang schoolmates ko e patay ako sa kantyaw. Or not. If you will, I’m gonna punch you on the throat. Di masakit yun.
