My Brother's Graduation

April 16 is my brother's graduation. Finally, after four years in college, he is now graduating with the BS IT degree. Though part of the ordinary, average students, I could never be so proud of him. I know he strived hard to finish his studies.

I am writing this because I was touched about what he said to me.. I was not supposed to attend his graduation. I did not file a leave of absence and I've no plans of going home to the province for it. What made me re-consider? It's what he said. Well, he just said that his graduation will not be as meaningful as it could be if i were home with them.

Whoa! Was I dreaming or did I really hear him say that? Imagine someone who is not expressive at all about how he feels just said that?! OMG! LOL

No seriously, I was deeply touched. I never thought he ever appreciated my funding and support on his studies and me as his older sister. He told me that he would be happier I could attend his graduation rights.. Oh my! Who could resists..? Right then and there, I filled out an application form for a two days leave.. I'm crossing my fingers hoping it gets approved..

To my brother, Jay, Congratulations! Cheers!
