A Letter to Nal
Years ago, I met this wonderful loud and funny friend, Annalie in college. We didn't click at first and we belonged to a different group of friends, she was an extrovert girl with lots of guy friends, rugged-looking wearing an above the knee skirt with those 4" black school shoes makes her feminine.



I belonged to a different group, who is more techy and boyish. I have seen her afar as she always makes everyone laugh and gets along with the teachers and the only person whom I would hear one's voice shouting from the lounge to the lobby calling a friend or a classmate to ask about an assignment and at times I would be surprised that she'd be calling for someone from the fourth floor down to the lobby asking about the presence of a classmate of to borrow something for a particular subject or ask about an update on a project. I got used to it since we are a block section in all of our subject.



We got along as the time goes by and surprisingly, we become a group of friends. She has been my to-go friends when life is just serious to be carried, yet there she standstill, giving her warm hugs and giving me her precious time listening to my so-dramatic life. I remember so well, We had a fun and joyful lunch with the girls at the canteen and we needed to hurry up as the next subject was about to start. We were walking briskly and exchanged sarcastic jokes and comments until we reached the lobby, we bid goodbye kisses to our friends as they hurriedly go to their next class. We were both lefts at the lobby as it has become quite classes were about to begin and we both looked in they and shared a good talk as we left the building going out of the university compound.


Both Anne and I failed at a prerequisite major subject during the first semester and that day we bid goodbye to our friends was the first day of that major subject.  That heartfelt talk we had as we walk going down the university gate, was both heartbreaking a realization of life, adulting perhaps and at the same time, I think it has been the turning point where we got closer to each other.


Since both Anne and I had a lot of time to spare, we always come together in class and in other extra-curricular activities especially when it comes to knowing other people around us, or dating. I would describe Anne to be my opposite, yet we click in so many ways her competitive spirit, optimistic point of view and her resiliency was one of the best things I admire from her despite many challenges had come. There would be no dull moments with Anne as funny as she is in person, she can find time to be someone you can share your hopes and thoughts without thinking twice.


Despite life brought us into different paths and roads we took, I can still count on her no matter the distance she may be and no matter how her day was feeling at. You know you can always rely on her even at someones worst.

 

Looking back, One of our talks back then was getting married, our wedding day on how it's going to be like and where it's going to be, who would be the first to get married and the list go on. As the eldest of the group, We even thought she'd get married first, to be followed by the next birthday celebrant and indeed, Last July 20, 2019, Annalie tied the knot with a special guy in her life, Moncho, whom she had shared her laughter, battles, and dreams. I never had the opportunity to tell Annalie, how grateful and blessed I was to have her as my friend or how happy I was that she finally met her prince and how happy we (her friends) to be part of another chapter of her life and to Moncho, who is officially part of our family of friendship.

There is a lot of stories to tell, not even my thoughts can write it all and since I wasn't able to tell her the things I wanted to say before her wedding nor the words that were on my thoughts that night. Somehow this post will relay some portion of what I wanted to let her know and since she will be reading this and Oh! Please!  do not let her take your photo or give her an opportunity to take a photo during an off guarded situation or else! Her wild imagination will run through with it.

The master of the possible memes will be unleashed!

Do not let Anne take the photo or else! (see above)

 PS. I lost my previous phone and since I'm not a fan posting photos online. All I can do is grab the photos from my friends facebook account and this is also to let you know I am not yet done being senti, so please wait till next friday. So, who's next getting married? Please wait for your turn.
