I’m a very sentimental person when my love cup is nearly empty. Reading and writing long letters keeps me going and makes me see the world with a loving gaze. Ha! Thus, when I was in “muni muni” (mulling over things) mode the other day, I suddenly had the urge to dig up old testimonials posted in my Friendster account six years ago. I knew, I copied and pasted most of it in a word document and saved it somewhere.
I frantically searched my external hard disk but to no avail. Then, it dawned on me that it might be attached in my old emails. I “rummage” my email like crazy… and voila! I found some of it. The big chunk of testimonials are still floating around though. 😦
Below is the testimonial that touched me the most:
“I look up to her as a sister. Thing is, i think she’s learning a lot from me (about anything) instead of the other way around. A beautiful person inside and out. Intellectual. Modest. I appreciate the fact that we have transparency to each other, I mean, I can tell her everything, about my problems, experiences, ideas, opinions, and she can do the same to me, and we don’t have to always agree about those. We don’t always say yes to each other… this makes her a true friend. There was one time when she said no, though. And I got hurt. When she left Lorma, I got bitter about it… I’d say she’s the only real and the best instructor I’ve ever had. A mentor. Most people in the institution failed to see that. One fact I love about her: not the party-animal type of instructor. She knows the boundaries between her and her students. I’ve wanted her to stay until I graduate, I cried A LOT. But life is not getting what we always want(ed). I can’t just imagine losing a good friend like her…”
