I am unofficially unemployed. Well, in a matter of one month, I will be. I have never ever thought that life can actually get this scary. As early as now, I’m getting pretty nervous! But at least, I already got one monkey off my back. April 21 marks the first day of my journey to life fulfillment.

But life is like this. Starting anew is inevitable. As I near the end my life chapter called Studying, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank those who have been with me for the last 19 years of my academic life. I know that some of them are readers and lurkers of my blog. All I can say is a warm and heartfelt Thank You. You know who you guys are.

    Answer to the question: I'm 23 years old right now, and guess what?! Ngayong May 2012 pa lang ako gagraduate ng college! yehesssss! You think I really mastered the Bachelor's degree? that's actually NO! Im a go lucky girl way back first year college days. I just realized na sana, nag focused ako maigi sa studies ko. Mas nag exert ng effort and mas naging seryoso, Kung ginawa ko yon siguro im working nadin gaya ng mga kabatch ko nung highskul(2005. Well, totoo nga na ang pagsisisi ay laging nasa huli. But at the end of the day, bilib padin ako sa sarili ko kasi kahit 6 years akong nagaral ng college, ito nako.. malapit na sa rurok ng tagumpay! This coming May 2012 aakyat nadin ako sa stage at tatanggapin ang aking college diploma. I'm just so excitedddd! Sana mainspire kayo sa story ko. :)

    C. I'm still in college yet I wish I had learned more how to manage my time properly - balance the time I have to spend using facebook, socializing, doing org matters, studying and doing my homeworks and papers. Even if it could be really hectic sometimes, I could have been more productive and efficient if I know how to manage time.

    C. Looking back, I wish I made more friends! I was known for being a little too mean but I refuse to admit it. I just thought maybe I look snob and payed no attention to it. I was living this downward spiral life until I thought I don't want this and I wanted it to end. That's when I found myself in God. He's there when I needed Him the most. I learned how important it is to be nice to everyone and actually gained new set of friends who understand me and the struggles I'm going through! I realized I love college and every pain was worth it! :)HAPPY GRADUATION!

    C) I am graduating this April! I am with Latin honors of Summa cum Laude. I don't want to brag about it, I don't regret anything from this wonderful achievement, However, one thing I regret is to have more friends and somehow, be carefree and pretty much don't worry about things so much. I tend to stress myself myself up studying and going straight to my dorm after class. I envy my friends for enjoying their college life with so many friends to remember, which make their college more memorable and meaningful. But over all, I am glad I am graduating this year, Batch 2012 and I am really grateful and overwhelmed that I ill be receiving such award :)

    I hope I win! Weeee! More power! :)

  55. A:
    I wish I tried to go out with my friends, chill out, party with them and took a break away from my books and computer, studying. I never thought about it until I am about to leave the campus and realize that my friends and I are about to separate ways. Yes, I didn't have much time exploring the world of being a 'kolehiyala', didn't experience the wildest part of being a college student, because I was too busy with my ACADEMICS life then.

    Having graduated last year, I know I can still make it up to myself now that all my hard work has paid off. I am still young being 21 and I am now enjoying life to the fullest by spending spare time with my college and high school friends and family! This time just being me, away from my computer and paperwork! :))

    C: I wish I could be more dedicated with my studies more than having a love life during college years. Because At the age of 17, and I'm only 2nd year that time I got pregnant and had to stop my studies because of my condition. If only I could back in that time I will prioritize my schooling more than anything. :( But, Despite of that, I know God gave me A Big Blessing and that's my Daughter! and now I will pursue my studies for my family, and I will be graduating next year! :)
