March 19,2011 a date I would remember for the rest of my life and also the day my occupation status went from being a "student" to "unemployed."
College has taught me a lot of things. Growing up in a foreign country and continuing my studies in my homeland was not easy at all. There were times I cried because I couldn't understand my Filipino subject (slightly exaggerated) At my first day of Filipino class, my professor asked me the translation of the Tagalog word, Kasaysayan. I proudly answered "Arts, Ma'am!" Poor me, it was actually History. Close enough huh?
Despite my poor Filipino language, I can proudly say that I graduated as the first Cum Laude of Batch 2011, the Golden batch (Okay, someone's being cocky :D)
For four years I have worked hard to receive my diploma, and once I stepped onto the stage, I turned into this greedy graduate eager to grasp the diploma in my hands.
I was steps away from the Vice-President of our school but I was already reaching out for my diploma :D
Teary-eyed while delivering my speech ;(
My dearest Mom and Dad marched with me to receive my medals :)
My handsome Dad :)
I'm really thankful for all the blessings and now that I have graduated, I'm ready to face the world one blog entry at a time :)
