After 5 years, I met again the most wonderful people I shared my high school life with. It's amazing how after all those years, we were still the same goofy people despite the fact the most of us are professionals already in our chosen fields. And although it was short-lived for me, it was definitely one of the best moments shared with the best people.
Again, this was one of the highlights of the Xavier Days I was talking about. In line with the festivities, a Grand Alumni Homecoming is being celebrated by the Xavier University High School alumni, sponsored by batch and this year's sponsor was XUHS Batch '87. I have been attending this event since I was in college and this year was even more special because it marks our 5th year since we graduated.

And since it's our 5th year already, some of my batchmates suggested a batch shirt which makes me feel guilty right now 'coz I didn't buy. I have no excuses.haha. But seriously, it really feels good to catch up with friends from way back and it makes me proud how most of us are professionals already. Oh, how time flies!

If you are wondering why most of the people here are guys, that's because our school was an all-boys school way back and it only opened up for girls in the year 2000 I think. That explains the FREE Booze. I swear, beer doesn't go MIA on that event.

|Almost all guys!haha|
After the event at the school, most of my batchmates decided to continue the party at another venue which again, I didn't come. I don't wanna give the impression that I'm such a buzzkill, it's just that I'm not really used to that lifestyle. Partying, I mean. I'm more of the stay-at-home-on-a-Saturday-night-reading-books person. And I live far from the city so I don't have a ride when I get home. Excuses!haha
But for what it's worth, I kinda' regret not going there because judging from the pictures that I saw on Facebook, they looked like they had a lot of fun. I promise next time, I will really come. Perhaps on our 10th year? Definitely!
