A month ago the third meet up with my high school class happened, it was well-attended and I can’t be happier because it was something I always look forward to ever since the group agreed that it should be a monthly event, at least everyone betted the same opinion. And even it means going home only for this occasion I’m not complaining because we’re trying to push everyone to be in attendance and that time is the most important here. And every class member should spare a day to attend the meeting. We want everyone to oblige themselves of this because we need a good number of attendees if we want to make this reunion thing a celebrated one. 🙂
*I love you guys for making my day! ♥ This one taken at what used to be the grade-schoolers classroom located at the rear site of the academy.
So I was like smiling ear to ear when we had a good number in February. Imagine that even those whom we didn’t have any solid contact for the last 20+ years made it. Special mentions to Capt. Ewald Manay and Mario V, his buttress-cousin, both were classmates up until our sophomore years. Actually, everyone’s attendance was surprising because none of them either confirmed or declined to our invite and yet they came, in full force!
Our mini-get together didn’t end there; everyone was in the mood for a little extension. We drove to the ridge side and savored some pizza and warmed our bellies with hot coffee later on. It was day –a much unexpected occasion which turned out to be a super exciting and merry one for the record. 😛
Then came Mar 29, our supposed 4th meet up. The venue remained to be the academe, only which this time we invited the other section, the Matthews, whom we’ve always looked up as the “elite” class. Not that their brainy and smarter than anyone of the Marky’s, hahaha, we’re considering more that most of them were borne to well-off families. Hey, but we were no way left out when academic is the subject matter, we have our own league of geniuses. Hehehe
Okay, last Saturday meet up was a disappointment especially on my part because I was presiding and yet I felt no is interested anymore, 😦 the invite was taken for granted. 😦 I wasn’t expecting the number to double but at least improve in a way but it didn’t happen. Sigh! But in a way, I’d like to thank Doc Joan for showing up despite her busy schedule and Jon R, because you’ll be Matthew’s rep from now on.
But I’m not giving up, this batch reunion is a go and it would be a success the way I foresee it in my mind. Right Mr. Co-Chair? We just need more patience and time and encouragement and effort and energy and money to make it happen! 🙂
