To Linnaeus

    How time flies fast!

    It has been 10 months since I met you guys.And now, we're heading on for third year.We'll be on different sections, and we'll have new teachers.We'll have new classmates(I'll be happy to have anyone of you as my classmate this third year),and sadly,others will leave for new schools.

    Nonetheless, I was glad to be in section Linnaeus.I'm thankful to have friends who are friendly and cheerful.I'm blessed that I enjoyed my sophomore times with you.

    Thank you for everything.Thanks for your company.Thanks for your kind friendships.Thanks for caring and helping in times of need.Thanks for the good times, and all those times.Thanks for the nice time at the acquaintance party.Thanks for the enjoyment that we had at the field trip.Thanks for every getaway that we had at SM after classes and every activities our school had.Thanks for the happy Christmas party.And thanks a lot for the rainy,yet joyful farewell party we had at Enchanted Kingdom(that was,again,my first experience at EK).Thanks for the joys, for the laughter.

    For those people whom I might have hurt in words or deeds,I extend my utmost apologies.I really have tended to do the wrong things or utter the wrong words without thinking.Again, I apologize.

    Here in Linnaeus, I have learned to be friendly.I was turned to be a better adolescent.I have trained myself to be a person of integrity, and a person of cheerfulness.Okay.My seriousness still remained, but as I went on through my sophomore days here,I had turned to a person who laughs out loud and joins in conversations a lot better.In short,I grew to become sociable at the least.That was an improvement.

    In addition,I have also learned various things in life in these sophomore days at the four corners of the Linnaeus classroom.One is that,maybe the biggest lesson of them all,as I have said in the poem "Me",I'll not always get the attention of people,though it might give you the term "forever alone".Anyway,I still remember those times when I realize that you are still there,still caring and serving as my close companions.I'm not forever alone, and I shouldn't be.

    I also found another thing at Linnaeus.That was my vulnerability to be envious.To be honest with you,I had been envious,not really jealous,with some of you when you got higher grades on our quizzes or exams,or higher ranks at the end of quarters--but not this final quarter..Sorry if that might have dispirited you.You know,I still have to accept things and learn from them..Therefore,I have learned to never mind those feelings of envy,or just don't respond to your envy for it would lead to a bad effect on you and the people around you.Yet, it would be better for you to ignore envy.

    I also saw the value of friendship in Linnaeus.There,we helped in times of need,especially when we were chasing on deadlines.(Never mind the nuisances.)Now,we survived those challenges at last!Thank you,Lord!I also saw in each of you how close you have been to each of your closest friends in the school.How nice it is to relish what we are now--from individuals from different freshmen sections to friends with close ties and even pairs(do you know what I mean?Wala akong kinalaman dyan).

    It was great to be with you guys.It was fun.

    And now, let me extend my words of gratitude and advice to each of you.

    Full of "keep well" phrases(I got it from Teddy Boy Locsin; just watch "The World Tonight" on ANC before they close each program) and synonyms of the word kind....What else could I say?

    Hope you'll enjoy this simple vacation,and may continue to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ.He loves us all.

    I'll miss you all.....and see you either on Facebook and on June,for many.

    Thanks and God Bless.

    And so it goes.
