When September Ends

It took me some time before I was able to write again. Yes, my work and acadamic life have been nonstop. The whole of August was devoted in preparation for my comprehensive exam last August 23 and 24. I had very memorable moments. I remember two important things I have learned whilst undergoing the hell weeks:

First is the discipline that one can strengthen when one is determined in achieving a goal. Reading and processing of ideas consume a lot of calories, too. Meaning, the review was no laughing matter. One needs a lot of focus. And you need all the positive vibes to help you out. Second is the nurtured relationships with your friends/compremates’. This one gets you motivated and inspired which also gives you a sense of belongingness.  One cannot live  alone. Teamwork was there. And would still be there whatever the results were.

At last, the scores were finally out last Sept 19. And I have all the major credits given to the Lord. He’s my Saviour. My Teacher. Topping the exams would have never been possible if trust in Him was nowhere.  Bliss. Only a few knew of the struggle that I have been to.  And I would like to thank those special people in my life who cheered and believed in me and for those who suffered by this inconvenience. Gracias.


What better way to share the exam experience? Through a good meal paired with laughs with the girls. Moments like these are memorable ones as everyone has her own busy bee lives.

Snow

prep for Compre

Last Thursday I had an encounter with two of my friends. One is named Yuki, which means “snow” in Japan (according to Cory). The other friend, was ofcourse Cory herself.

We had dinner at KFC and had quite such a refreshing meal ( I haven’t eaten at KFC for quite some time). Yuki and I discussed the topics to be reviewed for comprehensive exam on August 22-24. I got nervous and I’m sure he did, too, with the thought of the exam nearly approaching. It was something we both cannot escape.

I  remembered him mentioning, it’s  his 5th semester studying part-time.. and mine was 6th.

Three years of unstoppable learnings and it will soon be put into a test. That is, written. The real exam is when you get out of there and apply what you have paid for at UPLB Admin cashier 🙂

Good luck to everyone who would be taking the compre exam this semester!  Honor and Excellence! 😉
