Meet the Wakwak Society
These are my barkadas in my nursing years at Lourdes College. All of us are second-coursers. But sometimes, I cannot help but wonder why we became friends for we have different and extreme ‘personalities’. Well, let me describe them to you.
Reanne or yanni – astig, brutally frank and highly intellectual. Punctuality is sacred to her – ug tanan mi nakapiso sa iya kay sige man gaka late sa sabot. Since she always assumed responsibility to our group, she became our El Presidente in *Wakwak Society. She now resides in Canada yet she still keeps in touch.
Then there’s Nacky the wacky. She’s the clown of the group but inside, she’s very sentimental. She easily cries, he, he, and gets paranoid to people who are annoying. She’s currently a Clinical Instructor at Lourdes College, Nursing Department. Julie – the happy go lucky gal. School pressures don’t seem to bother her. And she can easily find a way out in every problem. In other words, sinisuerte, duh! Sometimes, I wish I’m as lucky as Julie.
Then there’s Joy or Joyax. She’s humorous and her laughter is contagious, however, she worries a lot. But it was really nice hanging out with her especially if you have no money coz she would take care of it, o divah bongga?. Next is Pamela or Mimi/Manang/Imyat, she thinks she’s a goddess, HA, HA, maygani kay angayan pod. I’ve known her since high school; we were classmates at Corpus Christi. Born with silver spoon in her mouth and tagged as maldita, you’d be amazed of her simplicity and never showing off her expensive stuffs and gems. She said she’s a chatterbox – at least honest sya no?
And of course there’s Bersai. Never underestimate her height coz she could give you a kick in the ass. She has a very big heart, too. She’s smart, cool, frank and a friend who could really keep a secret. She’s now in California. Me? Perhaps…unpredictable? hehehe.. I’m sensitive, observant, and friendly to those who are nice to me but never forgiving to my nemesis, hehehe…I’m a friend you could count on. And I’m still living here at Land of Bondage, Land of the Free…
* Wakwak Society is the name of our group. It is a visayan word for witches. As we all know, witches can easily smell or detect something. Well, any news that comes up, the Wakwaks knew it right away :)
