The year is almost drawing to an end. This year had its moments; both good and bad. We mourned the loss of life and property when several tragedies both natural and man- made struck different parts of our islands; and we rejoiced and held our heads high when Filipinos in different fields proved to the rest of the world that we are, despite adversities, world-class citizens.
In our own backyards, there would be highlights that we would remember this year by. The addition of a new family member, perhaps? Or the demise of a well- loved household pet. Whatever it is, we are sure that this year is one that you will remember for the rest of your lives.
Next year, the year 2010, is one that plenty of Filipinos look forward to. Aside from the fact that we Pinoys are perpetually optimistic, there’s the national elections that most of us are interested to see what the results will be, there’s Manny Pacquiao’s upcoming fight with Mayweather. And among students, there’s the annual summer vacation to look forward to!
But of course, there’ll still be plenty of happenings before summer. There will be the Seniors’ Ball, the Prom, Recognition Rites. If you are a graduating student, add to that list the Baccalaureate Mass, swapping of graduation pictures with friends, Culminating Activities, receiving of acceptance or refusal letters from universities that you applied to, and of course, the most awaited/dreaded Graduation March.
Next year will be a milestone. For everyone. The year is drawing to an end, and we all would have to bid it farewell. And while some of us might feel that there is nothing to look forward to in 2010, we just gave several. And we’re sure that you can add up to that. Feel free to write us and tell us what happenings in 2010 you’re looking forward to!
