I was and is very happy before,during, and after the commencement exercises. I started to ask some of my friends to write some message for me before the processional, specifically at the tent area, and during the distribution of diploma (uhu! how dare me..heheeheh).

Anyway, the geust speaker, Dr. Flores, gave a very inspiring message. Let me quote the two guiding principle I got from her which I will forever live by.

"Go for Flow" - We should always go for what will make us better individuals. Do not be stagnant, drive for success.

"Attitude can make and unmake things or events." - It is not mere interest or passion that will make us stable in our chosen paths,; but rather our attitude towards work and the people around us.

I also intently listen to Raegan capuno's message in behalf of the graduating class. As he proceed with his speech, my college years flash into my consciousness like a mini-flick. Everything went fast, yet vivid. To quote him, it is education that made us for who and what we are at the moment (let me add, and who and what we will be as we struggle in the real world).

I was not that touched with the said two speeches, however, I was reminded that graduation day is indeed the threshold of evry graduating students, a time to finally make up his mind on what to think and how to percieve the real world that awaits us.

Honestly, I was touched in a greater degree by the presentation (ppt or movie maker) showed as we, graduates, sang our grad song... It inculcated in me the joys truimphs of tertiary schooling outside the four corners of the classrooms.

I did not cry all through out and after the ceremony just like my friends (I am uncertain whether this is something to be proud of). Unexpectedly, the next morning I woke up crying after dreaming. Well this is another story.

What made the day extra special is that I was able to mingle with my other co-graduates who were not really close to me as we exchange goodlucks and prayers for each other.

Quo vadis Renin/ FAITH 2007 graduates? To success!

AD Astra First Asia!

my another FIRST

It was my first time to join an outing with friends days prior commencement exercises. I am glad my parents allowed me to go on an over night swimming with my AB Psychology classmates cum friends last 17 April (with lots of reminders about precautionary measures... *sigh*, well they're my parents)... Our outing/swimming was held at Uncle Vince's resort, situated at the the heart of Tanauan City, Batangas.

I really enjoyed alot, though I am no swimmer. I simply love Sarah's expertise the so called "Sarah's Bakery." I was unable to help myself not to eat much of Paul's Spaghetti. With food served that night, i can attest that the said siblings are real kitchen buff; not to give much emphasis to Paul being an BSHRM degree holder (he graduated too last 21 April). Ofcourse, I am proud to say that I was the official photographer of the event (hope i hope I'll get the hang of it professionally... soon)
Part of my choice, then, was lack of sleep and tardiness for wednesday practice. But evry0thing's worth it! I love it and it will be tresured forever!
Sana, i-invite nyo uli ako next time...

Approval Race

29 March 2007. Hanzel,Karen and I met at Walter Mart,Real,Calamba City at 12nn (were supposed to meet at 10, but unavoidable circumstances caused the delay). We first ate brunch at McDonalds, if we didn't our pin worms could have revolted. ^_^

Then, we proceeded to Consumers' place and rode a jeepney bound for Binan-Olivares via Expressway. The trip to La Consolacion Binan was fast and fun-filled for the three of us. Mr. Gerard santos, the paneleist whom we seeked approval signature, warmly attended to us. He reiterated that we, FAITH AB Psychology batch 2007 were all good during the recently concluded oral defense. He even brag us to his co-teacher. Hanzel, Karen and I were all tongue-tied and over-whlemed. Thank you Mr. Santos forthe compliments! FYI: It was the first time for Hanzel and Karen to take the route.

After 20 minuts or so, we took a tryke and a jeepney bound to Crossing-Calamba. During the ride, we chat regardingour respective dreamsand goals, both long and short term. We get off the PUJ at Turbina. We rode a PUJ bound forTanauan. At crossing-tanauan, Karen and I accompanied Hanzel at equitable bank. We went to FAITH and got the certification requested by Ms. Lida Landicho. The three of us went to July's place for personal matters before we took a bus boundfor Batangas City. At Batangas City,We rode another vehicle bound for Lyceum of Batangas. There we go, we met Ms. Lida, exchange pleasantries, and went back home.

The fun continued as we rode a bus (the same bus we took earlier). We took our pictures,ate snacks, and chat.

It was a tiring, yet, remarkable Approval race for the three of us!

Ang saya! ^_^
