It’s not the movie, I wish it was but it was definitely the literal translation of this blog title!
August never fails me to give that boost of overall physical and emotional and psychological effect that I can never forget.
First up, it was on August of 2010 that I was hired as a barista (as part-time partner) at Starbucks.
Recently I have been nostalgic about my friends in Starbucks. Some of them are not part of it anymore, some worked abroad and some stayed in the country. I treasured every moment I have been there, eleven months of devouring the passion for coffees paved way to lifetime lessons beyond compare. Totally a different kind from what I have been picturing myself.
It was also in August of 2010 where my high school buddies finally reunited after college.
Just this year, I took my comprehensive exam for graduate school. Nerve-wrecking study exam with which I was not totally prepared! I feel embarrassed with answers, my professors might think that I did not learn anything from them. 😦
Also of this year, since I have mentioned my HS buddies’ reunion was held August of 2010. This year we celebrated our 4th year anniversary reunion! Yes, it has been four years since we started the tradition of reuniting every August. Time flies so fast and we are mature enough not to be mad at silly things that we usually do.. haha
Although not all of us from 2010 came, they were with us in spirit.
