Just a quick story, if you happened to read my previous blog entry, entitled, "A Day with mom," I shared in that particular blog entry that she needed to go to Manila provided that her brother passed away. With that said, she was away from us for a week. Be that as it may, gladly, she had returned home safely yesterday. I'm grateful to the Almighty for guiding and protecting my mother until the day she comes back home.
Anyway, for this blog entry, my topic was supposed to be about sharing what made me busy today. However, I realized after knowing what day today, I decided why not create a blog about my throwback photos; sharing some of the best memories that I will forever cling to and cherish. Having that said, without further ado, let me get straight to the point of this blog.
Hey dear! If you haven’t read my previous blog entry entitled, “Becoming a role-model,” then here’s the link. 😊
We can’t deny the fact that whenever we see our old photos, we can’t help ourselves but reminisce the memories we had in the past. We can still feel the emotion we had before just by looking at the photographs. Indeed, photographs enable us to connect with our previous life. In fact, it has played an integral part of our lives. It has impacted us in a way that when we see ourselves in a particular photo where we see ourselves genuinely happy, we tend to say at the back of our minds or even verbally, “How I wish I’m still this kind of person,” or “If I could just turn back time, I will go to this moment.” Certainly, the throwback photos we have somehow remind us of the significant happenings we had back then. Apart from that, it reminds us of the people and the places.
I was in sixth grade when this picture was taken. To tell you guys the truth, I was once an athlete way back when I was in elementary. I can’t deny that I was really an active pupil in my younger years. I was able to join several competitions in our school. I was able to compete in a singing contest, dance contest, drawing contest, science quiz bee, and the like. However, but the thing is, that was before. Anyways, going back, I was a table tennis athlete [char]. That photo was the day when we compete as a table tennis player. The picture on the left was my childhood best friend (we’re still best friends up until today). By the way, the location of the competition was held in another school in our town. Actually, my best friend and I was holding the banner of our school in that picture but I decided to crop it for privacy purposes. To cut the long story short, we won second place for the double and single player. Yay!
As for the next photo, this photo was taken in 2017. Actually, I was already in the 12th grade at that time. In our school we had this so-called “Acquaintance Party.” There is no doubt that I felt nothing but genuine happiness in this photo for the reason that I was able to make new acquaintances. Likewise, I was able to spend time with my friends. I considered this day as one of the most remarkable events of my life where all we had to do is to enjoy the rest of the day.
Last but not the least, this photo was captured in 2020 by my college close friend before the COVID-19 issue began to appear on the surface. Actually, I was second year college at that point of time. We did take the opportunity to go to the rooftop at the engineering building for the reason that I want to witness the sun gradually sinking in the west. I couldn’t help myself but be fascinated by the view. The buildings and the sky were indeed too lovely not to appreciate. Fortunately, I was able to capture this moment; thanks to my best friend.
