So, I’ve been spending my free time, before school starts, catching up on my current favorite shows–Heroes, Prison Break, Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy.  A colleague introduced me to Gossip Girl, one of the new shows in the U.S.  If you enjoyed The O.C., I think you’re gonna get the hang of this new show.  After all, it came from the same creator of the defunct t.v. show.

Anyhoo, the characters in Gossip Girl kinda reminds me of my high school, all the painful, awkward stuff in it.  Not that I lived in the same high-class environment.  But you get my drift.

Someday I’m gonna write something about my own high school life and it’s going to be painful, heartbreaking, funny, awkward and hopeful. 

As Frank McCourt described in his brilliant book Angela’s Ashes:

“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all.  It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while.”

    “You just have to get through high school, because high school sucks for anyone who is the least bit different. But then there’s college and out in the real world, you will find where you fit in.”

    Kung hindi naging ma-drama high school natin, baka wala tayong paghuhugutan pag nagsusulat tayo, hehe. 🙂

  2. Korak! Minsan nga pakiramdam ko high school pa rin ako. Parang sabi ni Callie na we’re all still in high school. Haayyy…

    Thanks for dropping by.
