COCS – Cadet Officer Candidates for (or of?) School

can’t believe we practically fooled ourseleves during 3rd year high, having high hopes of being respected when we reach 4th year, coz we were gonna be officers… yes, we were the jackasses, trying to follow every command of our leaders… training, and sacrificing a lot of hang-outs… wasted our time and efforts… every dismissal from 5 to 6, doing marches and following every order… until three of us were left… nix, miko and i… unfortunately, we had the lowest ranks, coz we were not in the 1st section in our batch… (pathetic huh?)
this is one of the pictures i like the most coz according to gale… (2nd one from the left), it showed our ‘true’ selves… or the way we act with each other…
from left-right:
me: (yeah i’m the one from the leftmost)— can’t believe i’m actually posting a pic here… (well it’s only the net, and only anyone who has access can view this… ) hehe…
anyways i’m the okay we gotta be serious guys…
gale: she’s the ‘malambing’ person…
paul: medyo may pagka-bulakbol na konte… na parang walang pakialam…. ‘the hell i care’
nix: she’s the ‘huh? okay, like i give a damn’
and miko: the mister ‘ayaw ng gulo’ and peace guy….
anyways, there’s also something eerie about the pic when i first saw it… gale’s right hand is around me, while her left hand is on miko’s… sabi ko ba’t ang haba ng kamay ni gale??? well, alam niyo na… na kay nix pala yun… got me freaked out for a sec…
