Looking Back: 3 years of Love and Friendship ♥

WARNING: Super loooong post ahead. Minsan lang magkwento, pagbigyan na. LOL.

"When God made you, He must have been thinking about me..."

I first heard this song during my cousin's wedding. While this song was playing, I carefully listen to the lyrics. I always do that when I listen to new songs. Suddenly, memories of Vin & me together just kept on flashing. All the love, the friendship, the storms we have faced hand in hand, all the tampuhan, the arguments, our dreams for our future together, how lucky I am to have found someone like him, how God has created such a beautiful love story and have chosen us as the main characters, how our paths have met...everything. This one great Christian love song is simply OUR SONG - it's US.

Then I noticed tears welling-up in my eyes. haha. Sorry, such a crybaby. haha.

The Story

More than 3 yrs ago, boyfie & I were almost strangers. We just know each other dahil orgmates kami nung college sa yuFieLbi  BUT we're not really friends or anything. haha. We're two different individuals kase. Boyfie is super tahimik while I am super daldal. Boyfie is so matipid & really knows how to handle money while I'm quite magastos. haha. OO na magastos na. lol. Pero I'm improving naman na, diba? lol. We have different interests, different principles on different issues, & the list goes on. Mas matured ang mga prinsipyo niya sa buhay while I'm more of a childish little girl before. We have a LOT of differences BUT we manage to use these differences at our advantage. Due to these differences, we were able to learn from each other. Due to these difference we were able to complete the missing pieces in our lives. It's nice growing mentally and emotionally with the love of your life. :) It's nice having a guy bestfriend, kuya & a boyfriend in one.

Anyway, as mentioned, we started as mere orgmates in an acad-org named, Young Software Engineers' Societyduring college in UPLB. Hindi kami close nung resident members pa kami pareho. He's ahead ng one year so nauna syang grumaduate. We just had our chance na makapag-chikahan on one of the campus tours for freshies na nag-volunteer ang org. I was one of the resident member who volunteered to do the campus tour. E timing na nasa eLBi din sya that time, he joined our group kase isa sa mga kasama ko sa group ay close nia. To not bore ourselves, we had kwentuhan, takutan, asaran and picture-picture moments during the tour.

See that picture above? We had goosebumps when we saw this while browsing on old pictures. Premonition ba ito na magiging kame? haha. It pays volunteering noh? LOL.

Then came another event spear-headed by our beloved org. Ang sipag talaga ng org namin. Bongga diba? haha. The event was a seminar where there will be a lot of corporate IT people as guest speakers. We were tasked to suggest a title and an objective for this event. Dahil dyan, nag-survey ako sa lahat ng orgmates na contacts ko sa YM, including the alumni, and he was one of the few people who answered and gave quite good insights. Ewan ko kung pano nangyari but since then halos everyday na  kami magka-chat. It was like hindi kumpleto ang araw ko pag hindi ko sya naasar sa ym. haha >:) Then, we started texting each other kahit pa SMART pa ko nung at GLOBE sya. Then, my phone got lost at sya yung unang tinawagan ko bilang kabisado ko ang number niya. Pangalawa ko nalang natawagan ang tatay ko. haha. After my phone got lost, nag-globe na din ako.Then, level up na, from texting we started calling each other. He's been my confidant and ka-chikahan tuwing na-iistress na ko sa SP ko (parang thesis namin). He started going to eLBi and other org events more often. Later on, we started going out, friendly date lang ganun. Echusera! haha. Then finally, we started dating. haha. Tapos nagulat na lang ako nung April 26, 2008 kami na. lol. joke. haha. And the rest is history na lang. *winks*

2008: In a Glimpse

It was May 5, 2008 at first day namin (marami rami rin kase sa orgmates at batchmates ko nung college ang kasama ko sa same company) sa first job namin after we graduated college. My batchmates and I were all seated sa training room. Suddenly, Vin came out of nowhere. We were ALL shocked to see him as he entered the room. We were all like, “Anong ginagawa mo dito?!!!” haha. To my surprise, he also applied in that same company kung san kami nag-apply. Kahit na ang layo layo nito sa bahay nila at kahit na ilang oras ang byahe niya papunta-parito sa opis. Haha. I asked him kung bat di nia sinabi sakin, sabi nia para daw surprise. Inferr, LAHAT kami na-surprise. Haha. Adik sya! LOL.

Bilang mahilig gumala ang mga batchmates namin sa opis, andami naming activities together as batchmates and boyfriend-girlfriend. It’s nice going to the office just to see him, sabay kayong papasok at uuwi from office, having someone who would calm you down whenever bad trip ako, just simply having him around brings sunshine to my everyday toxic corporate life. Here’s a few rundown ng mga ganap namin as batchmates from 2008-2010:
