Letter to myself (Happy 18th Birthday)

2 Oct

Dear 18-year-old me,

Happy birthday to the both of us! We are finally legal and older, finally the day that we have been waiting for has come. By this time you are now in college, taking the diplomacy course in Ateneo, our dreams finally cam true. The road to where you are may not be easy but I know for a fact that it was all worth it, I am so proud of you for what you have accomplished in life right now. I hope that your present is treating you well, two years in college can really change you. Do you still remember the crazy bucket list that we both made when we were younger, the one that we should fulfill by the age of 18? Well, if you’ve forgotten so far, here it is:

My bucket-list, to be fulfilled at the age of 18:

1.)  Get into Ateneo and study there.

2.) Be a Dean’s Lister

3.) Win a competition

4.) Get a real boyfriend

5.) Travel outside the Philippines

6.) Meet someone that you don’t regret meeting

7.) Buy something expensive for yourself

8.) Have a grand debut party

9.) Get your first taste of something

10.) Do something different

At this day and age that we are right now, I hope that the past years that we’ve gone through changed us for the better. We are no longer a girl, we are now a woman and a very brilliant one. Also, I want you to remember that no matter what happens to our life right now or no matter what changes we’ve gone through, know that I will always accept you and remember that every change that we’ve gone through will lead to us becoming the better versions of ourselves in the future. I love you 18-year-old me, may you stay awesome and never forget who you are.

P.S. I can’t wait to see you representing our motherland during World Forums or World Congress and show the world how we can make a change, you’ll become an awesome Ambassador in the near future and I can’t wait for that.

Yours truly,

10-year old me.
