My favorite memory in high school are all the times I’ve spent with my barkada. We’ve been friends for six years now. Our parents are also close friends so even if we live away from one another, it’s ok for us to visit. We always hangout, window shop and I love how I can talk to them anything under the sun. We always tease each other about boys and our crushes. What I love about our group is we are all achievers. We’re always given academic awards and mostly excel. We are all competitive and we use this as a motivation to push each other to aim high. Now that we are entering college, I’m the only one who is moving to a different university. I feel sad about it and I miss them a lot. We rarely go out recently because we are preparing for the upcoming classes. I decided to go to state university because of the course that I’m taking and our financial limitations.
