Pinoy Youth Share The Last Group Pics They Took Before The 'New Normal'

Ah, good times.

Back when life was ~normal~, it was acceptable to beso—or at the very least, hug or high-five—your friends upon seeing them. Heading out for a night out or planning spontaneous road trips were the go-to stress relievers from school. Ah, the good times. You can always count on friends to go on fun adventures with you or try new things you’ve never done before.

For now though, we’ll settle with tagging each other in memes, sending virtual hug emojis, and scrolling through old barkada photos because we are a responsible squad. And while we’re all for living the moment and savoring each other’s presence, aren’t you thankful now that you took out your phones and snapped a selfie or two with your barkada when you last hung out with them? Below, #GenerationCandy share the last pic they took with their friends before social distancing, and they will make you feel senti about your own precious squad moments.

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
