I have very few friends in this life but all of them are genuine. I just hate unreal people, those who smile at you when you are talking to them but say bad things about you behind your back. My friends are not like that. We may be separated by distance, but just one meeting or one conversation and we easily catch up, as if we have never been apart. This is the case with my high school bestfriend. She’s one of the very few friends I have who are for keeps.
When the results of the 2011 Philippine Bar Examinations were released yesterday afternoon, I was one of the thousands, if not millions, of people who were very anxious about it. Why not if your best friend is one of the hopefuls whose lives are about to change either for the better or for worse? So, wait I did and boy, was I in for a big surprise! My best friend passed the bar exams and is now a proud lawyer!
I am very happy for and proud of my best friend Leah Abello de Guzman. Her sacrifices and hard work definitely paid off. I’m sure her family, especially her parents, are very happy for and proud of her as well. And I bet there’s gonna be a big celebration, too! I wish I could be part of it, but she’s in the province and I’m here in the city. Bummer.
