Happy 18th birthday to me

Today is the day to be happy. It is because it's a happy 18th birthday to me! Today marks a new chapter in my life and I am so excited for all that is to come. I am grateful for the love and support of my friends and family, and for the experiences and lessons that have shaped me into the person I am today. Now that I am on my first year of my diploma course in Information Technology at STI Ilagan, I am looking forward to embracing new opportunities, taking on new challenges, and making the most of this next stage in my life when I graduate. Here's to a year filled with joy, growth, and adventure!

Let's be mature and graduate together, batch 2001!

Congratulations on your high school graduation! This is a significant milestone and a time to celebrate your hard work and accomplishments. I would like to dedicate this letter of mine to the Isabela National High School batch 2001 graduates in Ilagan, Isabela:

Dear classmates,

Today, we gather together to celebrate one of the most significant milestones of our lives – our high school graduation. We have worked hard to reach this point, and it is a moment that we will never forget.

As we look back on our journey which we started in the year 1997, we can see how much we have grown and changed since we first started high school that year. We have learned new skills, made new friends with fellow Ilocanos and as well as Ibanag speakers. We faced challenges that have helped shape who we are today and to who we may become in the next 10 or 20 years.

But our journey is far from over. We are moving on to the next chapter of our lives, filled with new opportunities and adventures. I encourage each and every one of you to seize these opportunities and to never stop learning, growing, and exploring. Together, let's be mature and graduate together.

Remember that no matter where life takes us, we will always be connected by our shared experiences and memories of our beloved Isabela National High School. Let's take a moment to reflect on what we have accomplished and to celebrate the journey ahead.

Congratulations to my fellow graduates, classmates and friends. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

May this letter finds you well. As we enter into another chapter of our lives, remember what Walt Disney said, if you can dream it, you can do it. We are the real batch millennium!
