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.

To The Doctor,

Greetings Doctor I’m glad you are reading this right now because I can now tell you something that I did not have any courage of saying it to you personally. First of all I would just like to say that I am grateful that you have chosen me to travel with you around through time and space. I was scared at first, well you can obviously tell from my constant screams on the first time you activated the TARDIS with me on board, but knowing that you are there by my side I became more confident and courageous to face my fears about the past and future. I was just surprised that have granted me access on TARDDIS.You are my hero. You brought me to places that I never thought of going to because life restraining me from finding out what this universe is all about and all that it has to offer.

It may have been a hectic ride but you were there to help me keep up and basically solve everything with your own Sonic Screwdriver. But time has changed and I am in need to live my own life this time, I believe it is time for me to allow me to live my life in the present. It is not that I did not like time travelling, entering the TARDIS, and spending an eternity wandering around with you like two lost birds. I enjoyed every single moment of it because it isn’t just because of the time being in our hands but us being together the whole time.

Thank you Doctor for accompanying me on this journey and I hope to travel with you again soon.

Sincerely from your beloved,
