Ten years ago…


…I was praying hard that the DLSU Green Archers win back-to-back championships. My life back in college was The LaSallian, the school paper. I was there when Dino Aldeguer made it possible.

Ten years later, my beloved team fails to make it in the Final Four and only a video from youtube brings some comfort.

Ten years ago, my best friend was Jose Cuervo.
I can drink like there’s no tomorrow.
Starting to wish that those days didn’t go.

Ten years later, I miss alcohol. I can’t drink because of this damn medication that I’ve been taking for more than three months! I’m not angry, okay!?

Going back.

Ten years ago, I thought that leaving this country was the best thing that could ever happen to me.

Ten years later, I’m beginning to see that staying and being a positive voice in my country is the best thing. Cheesy but it’s true.

***
Ten years ago, the idea of working in a multinational company meant security, fulfillment, and happiness.

Ten years later, I really don’t know. Security, fulfillment and happiness are found inside.

***
Ten years ago, talk is cheap.

Ten years later, people cheapen talk.

***
Ten years ago, I was enjoying my life in college. I was actually wasting my time hanging around, sleeping on the bench, being the harasser, being the harassed, watching PDA (Public Display of Affection), eating KFC, ogling, getting friendly with the new staff, and cramming.

Ten years later, I’m trying to come up with something clever to place this contest from Avalon.ph in my blog so that I can win a SIGNED copy of Neil Gaiman’s hard-to-find book, Adventures in the Dream Trade (trade paperback edition).

I’m doing it for her, the girl who has been with me through good and not-so good times.

Besides, she’s a bigger Gaiman fan than I.

Again, cheesy but it’s true. This one’s for you.
