If you knew me way back in High School, you can see me buying every song hits, making every mix tape (until Id save up and buy their latest CD – I have a complete set, but I kind of let go of it at one point in my life when I tried to reinvent myself), id buy every magazine with them in the cover (and me and Emel Joy would scream and take turns in kissing the cover) cause we fangirl like that. And everytime my girl group in HS *kaway kaway mona phoebe ellen rachel matet* would dance at parties, we would always dance a1 songs. Kabuang! Hahaha
But then, I eventually changed genres during college from Alternative Rock to Punk/Pop/Rock/Emo music pa. Hello, the used, dashboard confessionals, simple plan etc etc.
When I heard they were coming, I was delighted! And im like: Omyglurb! God is making them come here in Davao na! He sure does makes my desires come true… sometimes it’s not instant and sometimes the feelings kind of fade of whether I still want to or not.. and well, I thought out of sight, out of mind.
I had mixed emotions, and I impulsively bought the meet&greet ticket. I have outgrown their songs actually. I tried listening to them again and it does bring memories of me and them. But, not the same fangirling feeling I had when I was in High School.
I was cool, calm and collected. Totally in control of my emotions.
But, I took the chance in buying tickets and gidamay nako ang household and ate Pangging 😂and Lady Bam.
Because, Carpe Diem! I dont want it to be another missed opportunity. It was so close, and then I would choose not to? So, yeah.
Venus retrograde sure is at work because they were my boyfriends during high school! *ayaw na mo palag. Sila lang ang boyfriends na pwede ishare hahaha altho sa una di ko ganahan ishare sila*
I’d imagine it was them singing those ballads for me. Mark was my ultimate crush(however I didnt want to be at the side sa photo haha I shook his hands tho! (Kay good girl kaayo ko the events guys told us to be professional no pushing, no hugging, no kissing, no selfie – but a lot stole kisses, hugs and selfies man oi! Pero di ko ganahan mangawat chos! Hahaha) So professional lang gyud.
Anyway, reconnecting with my ex boyfriends when I was in High School sure was a gem. All memories came back when they sang their first song! Ughhhh!!
Thank you dear God for the experience. You are the best! How does it get any better than this?
