8TEEN (a thank you note)

Hello, your 4'11 girl is finally legal! (And still below the 5 foot height.)

I turned 18 approximately two weeks ago and fun fact: I think birthdays are like new years for a human person - and the new year as in January 1 is earth's birthday (But like mother earth is waaaay older than 2016 but yeah, still.)

So, I had my little Samantha's new year exactly a week ago, June 3rd. But my celebration started a day earlier. Actually, once it hits June 1st, it's already my birthday, whether you like it or not. June 3 is just the official, official thing. The whole month of June is my birthday.

(This is how passionate I am when it comes to my birthday.)

Warning: Kinda photo overload

To my grandparents, thank you for taking care of me and looking out for me since my very first breath. Thank you for giving me an adorable childhood where a grandchild is spoiled rotten by her grandparents. Thank you for letting me experience that. You have given me and continue to try to give me things I need within your reach. I wish to give back the world you have given me and more and I want to make things easier for you guys now because I know how hard times are now. I want to shower you both with everything you deserve but unfortunately I don't have the means yet and I guess me and the whole world knows that by the time that I do.... yeah.

WE HAVE THE WEIRDEST GROUP PHOTOS. I mean - look at the two Kates at the back.

Thank you to my friends, for keeping me sane with their insanity. I love and treasure each and every one of you guys and I appreciate every moment we get to hang out with each other and bask in our laughter and inside jokes. I pray and hope you get through daily life and come out stronger than usual. I can't wait for what's in store for all of us in the future. I know we'll stay together til we're 70 years old.

To Kate and Audrie, I love you both so much. I wish we were neighbors and I could do everything with you guys and tell you everything and anything at anytime. I hate our schedules and distance.

To my parents, our situation is not ideal but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you both so so much and I admire you both for being so strong for me and Gio. I miss the both of you every day. Thank your for raising me into...all this. HAHAHA. I am proud of who I am and I hope you are too. I still continue to want to make the both of you proud and the amount of gratitude I have for the both of you is endless. You are both quirky, intelligent and talented human beings and all that is mixed into me. I am so lucky!!?!?!?!

To my little brother, for the first few years of your life I hated you. We did not get along and we constantly wrestled each other. The beauty of sibling-ship????? I love you, little brother. You are generous and kind and I hope you continue to be that way even though you may be going through a phase right now. I understand. Don't let the world hurt you too much. I love you. Forest green!!!! (inside joke.)

I have to finish this now because at the moment, my mom is screaming at me to go down and eat my lunch.

And you, thank you for reading my blog. Whoever you are, great things are in store for you. Thank you for taking the time to read into my life.
