Hey there, everyone. Today, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the amazing friends that I have in my life. These past few weeks have been challenging, but having such supportive people by my side has made all the difference.

Whether it's on the volleyball court or in our everyday lives, my friends never fail to lift me up and help me through tough times. Their encouragement and belief in me push me to be the best version of myself each day.

I can always count on them to listen when I need someone to talk to or offer advice when I'm feeling lost. They understand me in a way that no one else does, and for that, I am truly grateful.

It's moments like these when I realize just how lucky I am to have such incredible people surrounding me. From our late-night study sessions before big exams to our post-game celebrations after a hard-fought victory – every memory we create together brings us closer as friends.

And let's not forget about their unwavering support for my relationship with you-know-who winks. It warms my heart knowing that they accept us wholeheartedly and are genuinely happy for us.

So here's a shoutout to all of you - thank you for being there through thick and thin, for cheering me on from the sidelines (both literally and metaphorically), and for simply being your wonderful selves. Your friendship means more than words can express.

As we continue this journey together towards graduation and beyond, know that I will always cherish our bond as friends. Let's keep pushing each other forward towards success while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Until next time, Daichi
