To the faces I see in my memory

Where are you now?
Cause I’m thinking of you
You showed me how
How to live like I do
If it wasn’t for you
I would never be who I am

To those nameless faces
and faceless names I remember

I know we’ll never see those days again
And things will never be that way again
But that’s just how it goes
People change but I know
I won’t forget you

To the ones who came
Who were there from the start
To the love that left
And took a piece of my heart
To the one who’d swear
He’d never go anywhere
Where are you now?

Where are you now?
Cause I’m thinking of you
You showed me how
How to live like I do
If it wasn’t for you
I would never be how I am

Where are you now?

To my college diary
Where are you now?

AFES Class ’92 Reunion

I recently came in contact with many of my elementary friends over at Facebook. I’m so happy! I’ve been trying to get in touch with some of them for the past years! Next year, it will be our 20th year (oh noo! I just revealed my ageee!) and we’re planning for a grand reunion. Jeffrey Medina (our school’s valedictorian) and I talked about this reunion back in college. Now, I can see it’s finally happening all because of the power of Facebook.

I’m thrilled to know that some of them are teachers already. I wonder if anyone went to a chiropractic school? Right now, we already have 43 members and counting. I hope we get to reach 100 by the end of the year. And I also hope I could get in touch with Jocelyn Bartolome who I consider one of my best friends then. I haven’t heard any news about her after graduating, dear,if ever you read this, I’ve been looking for you for ages! I sincerely hope you are happy. Let’s meet soon!

NOTE: AFES – Andres Fernando Elementary School, Malanday Valenzuela City.
