Here's my share for Memory Lane Monday's last theme for this month - College Graduation.

Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology '99

Yesterday, I saw a music video that a classmate from college shared in Facebook.  It's apparently a baccalaureate mass video entitled, "Bakit mo mahal ang UST?"  ("Why do you love UST?"), made by a group of students.  I get a wee bit sentimental watching it because it just brings me back so much memories of my fun College days, particularly of my barkadas, classmates and close friends.  I started college at quite a young age (15), so I could say that I did spend a good deal of my teenage years in UST.  My favorite lines in the song are, "...dito tayo umibig, dito tayo umiyak, at sama-samang nagsaya..." (here was where we loved, cried and rejoiced together) - which are all true to me - I didn't only learn academics in UST but I also discovered some of the most wonderful things in life like friendship, camaraderie, companionship, youth, and basically, growing up.

Anyway, as you can read above, I graduated at a time when taking photos meant you need to have a camera with a film in it, so the college grad pics I have with me are prints.  About two years ago, I made it my project to scan all the old photos I have, so I could have digital copies, but my scanner and computer were not very cooperative.  I haven't been able to finish that project and still in progress up to now but I have a few already saved in my computer, so here goes some of my yesterday-once-more in pics:


This was held the night before our graduation day.  I think I was post 16 or 24-hour duty that day but I didn't want to miss the baccalaureate ceremony, so I attended despite the lack of sleep.

Purple - the official color of the Faculty of Pharmacy
including Medical Technology, Biochemistry and Botany

The south borders of the barkada - Kuya, Arts, Baby G, and Momsie.  I miss you, guys!

Chillaxing in the main building second floor after the baccalaureate ceremony with some of my kabarkadas.  I sort of have a big barkada, and pictured here are Sam, me, Weng, Chipp, Artie and JP.


I should've worn a smudge-proof, waterproof mascara.

This is my favorite graduation picture of my "I-E dissolved class" barkada.  Unfortunately,
I was busy having my photo taken with my "crush" then, hence, that explains
why I'm not in this pic :( 


My third year class picture - last academic year before we embarked on internship.
That year, we said goodbye to our old school uniforms and daily classroom lectures, but NOT to our friends!  Majority from my class and batch subsequently went to medicine school, so most of them regularly saw each other (or even went to school together) after college,  but for the few of us who didn't, I could say that we're thankful that through Facebook and modern technology per se, we get to stay in touch and updated with each other as we wish ☻

    About this post, it's cool to look back and reminisce the past. These memories are like fibers of our humanity. They make up who we are, at these very moment. They are like these force that can also fuel our dreams so we work hard to reach for them.
