Dear Journal,

            I literally did a city adventure today with my friend since we just started our company hunt for our summer internship program. It was still unimaginable for me to fathom how long we walked and traveled between cities only to land a job. Now I realize that finishing your studies is a thing but finding a work suitable for you is a way lot different story. There are a lot of requirements that need to be fulfilled as well as the circumstances along the way that also need to consider. It was pretty much difficult, but I guess that maybe if we continue doing this, we’ll figure out how to manage things up without roaming the roads unconsciously.

            To wrap things up today, I want to thank the Almighty for protecting us all throughout our journey today. Thanks G! 😊

 

Sincerely,

Angelie

Dear Journal,

            The highlights of today — MERALCO POWERCAMP!

            Well today, I attended an orientation about the PowerCamp spearheaded by the Meralco Corporation (Electric Company). At first, we thought that it will already be applicable to third year students unfortunately, it is not. The organizers informed us that they invited us only just to give us a glimpse of what will be happening next year. It was a good point actually coz we found out the things that we should work on for the next few months. I am so excited about it but at the same time, I feel so scared that I might not make it until the end. Maybe this is the first problem that I need to sort out myself – I need to learn that not all things will go the way I want them to be. Some things in this world aren’t just for me and I just have to be patient about it. 

      In the end, I want to say that this was an amazing day for I learned something that I consider life-changing. 🙂

 

Sincerely,

Angelie

Dear Journal,

            And this marks my last college day for 2017. Can you imagine how time just flew!? Wow. My entire year really went like a short run and the countdown for Christmas is already up. There were so many things to finish up at the university and that is why it’s been a while since I posted something like this. Apologies! Meanwhile, as my vacation time starts, I am just so excited to go back to Baguio after so many years. Yes, that’s right – we planned to stay there until Christmas’ day and I am expecting to have a great week there. Even though I was just a little grade school student when I first when up to the “City of Pines”, I remember all those memories that I created along with my friends. All the laughter that we shared, I treasure it until today. Actually, I am really curious what they’re doing right now. Hahaha. Can they still remember me? Hmmm…

            Anyways, I guess that this is enough as an entry for today. I really hope that this season will be worth keeping. See ya!

 

Sincerely,

Angelie

Dear Journal,

            Today was supposed to be the day that I would compete once again in the extemporaneous speaking contest at our college department. Unfortunately, I was enlisted at another event overlapping the first and putting me in a very difficult position. Good thing, a student on the same class as mine took my part and participated in it. As for me, I attended the writing contest in the afternoon. Initially, I thought that it would be the last event in line for me after I got out in the speaking competition but nah, I got it wrong. The contestant for the dagliang talumpati (the exact opposite of extemporaneous speaking *just the Filipino version*) also has an overlapping schedule during the time. But since I was already vacant, I represented our class. Honestly, it was really challenging on my part for it wasn’t done in the English language which I practiced a lot. For several years, I competed in the extempo not in daglian. Unfortunately, there was no one to put in the slot aside from me and that is why I joined. Continue reading “21st of November”

Dear Journal,

          It’s today when I took the highly anticipated JLSS (Junior Level Science Scholarship) Examination which was supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) here in the Philippines. There were several testing centers all over the country but as for me, I did mine somewhere in Manila. At first, I thought that I would not take everything seriously – that it is fine whatever happens but when I got there, a part of me seemed to be so conscious of passing. It was a feeling so similar to what I felt during the time I took the UPCAT. And so, during the one hour of waiting upon the start of the test, I continuously tried to calm myself by listening to music. Fortunately, it worked – a little. My K-Pop playlist gave me some sort of energy to pursue the examination. Phew! Continue reading “19th of November”

Dear Journal,

            Today marks the beginning of my review sessions for a scholarship program that I applied October. It is not just an ordinary opportunity since I never got to do this back when I was still in middle school. Fortunately, because I am attending a renowned state university here in Manila, I can finally attempt to grab this one out. Honestly, I am really pressured to pass the examination for this is huge that I feel like I cannot make any mistakes at all – so many things are just at stake. Adding to the tension, when I saw the subjects that will be included in the test, they are all my weaknesses. But even though that is the case, I am thankful on the other side since I have this chance to prove to everyone what I am capable of – that I am not where I am today simply because of anything else. I want to show to people that I can do this despite of all the hindrances that may come along the way. Fighting!!!

 

**Please pray for meeeee! Thanks a lot. 😊
