Dear 16 year old Neds,

Published 03/29/2015 by Neds Rocillo

Hi! I know you are having a lot of fun right now and all you think of is your friends and your boyfriend but believe me when I say “It won’t last.”. You will have your heart broken by that guy but don’t worry he’ll be sorry for doing so. I’m pretty sure you’ll move on and be wiser and more picky next time. hahaha

In the meantime, you have to focus more on deciding which course you want to take in College! I know deep down how excited you are and yet sad because you’re gonna leave the school that became your second home for the past 13 years. You’re scared aren’t you? Of course you are but there’s nothing to worry about because college will not only teach you your Major subjects, lessons on your books but the best thing is it will offer you a lesson called Life 101.

You will be taking a lot of exam from different colleges and universities. You will take different exams for different courses because your childhood dream to become a newscaster suddenly changed to becoming a film director, to an interior designer, to a dentist but your final choice will surprise you because it was never in your plan. You will be entering a newly opened international school and you will be taking up Bachelor of Science in Travel Management! You always love to travel but I’m sure you never see it coming! Haha but yes, Treston International College will be your new home for the next 4 years!

In college, you will meet a lot of different people and you have to choose wisely your friends. Since you are only 16, let me give you one piece of advice. Love yourself first before you love other people. You have to start thinking of yourself because not all people around you right now will stay and will be there for you for the rest of your life. People come and go and you have to deal with it. I don’t want to scare you but I want you to be ready in facing the reality. Don’t let this bring you down instead take this as something that will motivate you to be a better person. Always remember also that you don’t have to be perfect because nobody will ever be perfect. People will trust you and never ever break their trust even if they have failed you. It’s always a part of life. 🙂

Not to spoil the ending for you but you will be okay. You will be able to go through all these challenges from school stuff, friends arguments,dramas, just basically everything. You will survive and be happy. Remember that the person writing this now is You. You’re stronger than you ever could imagine and I’m so proud of you. Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t be afraid to show them who you really are. 🙂

P.S. I love you. ❤


Your 21 year-old self
