I was browsing my old yahoo mail account and was so happy to reminisce old stuff, messages, conversations, and memories.
Five years after, I’ve realized only now that my 20-year-old self isn’t that bad pala. She was slowly coming out of her comfort zone then as a new graduate, yet she managed to do what she had to do and more. I wish I had given her a high five back then. It’s so nice to reminisce. It’s nicer to reminisce it now. Years after, I appreciate that “me” and season even better.
Once upon a time, my voice was heard on national radio. Haha. Glad I was able to keep the TOA (Tape On Air). Honestly, I almost forgot what TOA means so I Googled it. Haha. And, listening to it five years after is both funny and nostalgic. Okay, cringey too. Well, for the shy me.
Get ready to cringe and laugh out loud with me with this audio clip 😂🤣😅 :
Once upon a time, a billboard layout I made was displayed at A. Bonifacio near the tollgate at NLEX and other areas near Commonwealth. Seeing that old email and the photos, I suddenly remembered the joy and kilig I felt every time I see the billboard on my way home. Para bang napapatanong ako lagi, “Is it real?”
Once upon a time, I designed shirts, calendars, and bag tags too. These merchs were given away to listeners of the former radio station I worked at. It was a proud moment for me so I kept one of each. Seeing them makes me remember the good times.
Once upon a time. Oh, once upon a time.
Looking back, my 20-year-old self must have been so happy to have done and experienced such things. Underneath the stress back then, doing the things she loved on the side made all the stress bearable. But, in the end, she had to leave that work and bloom some more. Nevertheless, she was thankful. Thank you, Pangga!
Dear twenty, thank you for the great memories.
Dear twenty-five, let’s go and make some moreeeee!
P.S. Last Saturday, I was able to stroll around my old office’s area. A lot has changed. I was filled with nostalgia that day. I am thankful that once upon a time, God brought me there.❤
