Reminders

Recently, we have been organizing documents and house materials. I decided to organize the documents stored in the yellow box that is located at the corner of our kitchen. There were important papers and sentimental documents in the box, but there were few things that immediately caught my attention. I got the chance to see my past plates and artworks again.

Touching and examining each plate was like walking down the path where I started my adventures in college with innocence and diligence. Each plate has its own memory and it has a very powerful impact to me. One plate reminded me of the time when I rummaged through my classmate’s phone to find some faces of people for the facial emotion activity that we had in Body Parts Drawing. Another artwork reminded me of my ventures in joining the annual Petron Art Competition! It was a memory that I will always cherish for it taught me so many things such as hard work, perseverance, and wisdom. Another piece reminded me of the hype that I had towards drawing Disney characters! I actually Disney-fied some of my high school classmates, and I chuckled when I saw the drawing! Another piece reminded me of how I met my first college best friends and their essentiality in making FA a fun course! Also, some of the plates greatly reminded me of the helpful professors that I had in FA, and I will forever cherish their essentiality in making my talent grow in a challenging way. They showed me that learning can be a friendly process with the involvement of the teacher who shares lessons, and the student who works and makes heaps of plates and artworks! I was only asking for an improvement, but they have given me more than that in a very casual way. However, I will never forget the plates that reminded me of the deadlines that I had! Some of my plates were rushed, but as soon as I reached the campus with hours to spare, I added details to make an improvement.

Well, the set of artworks as a whole reminded me of my diligence and perseverance towards every task when I was an FA student in AUP; this reminder would be very helpful now that I am about to become a sophomore student in UP. It tells me that diligence and perseverance will always get me to where my goals are, even though college is a distinct series of drastic success and failure. Thankfully, this small task that I have accomplished earlier reminded me of my true purpose as a college student.

The Infraction and The Complaint (Part 2)

Now let me ask you

complain

When was the last time you read the rules and regulation on the syllabus? So you can stop complaining why the prof is strict.

When was the last time you cared to move your book and written notes? So you can stop complaining why he isn’t worthy. He gave you notes, do your part, and come to realize your worth (long story short, your worth is to study in his class, are you studying?).

When was the last time you’ve punctually done your homework and dumped activities? So you can stop complaining why (more…)

The Infraction and The Complaint

One morning, I successfully finished my driving class and I proceeded to my next subject. As I was walking at the sidewalk near the canteen (the canteen next to the university store), I caught sight of a familiar scene; a student guard giving a notice to a lady whose skirt hemline is above her beautiful knees. I felt her struggle to explain her side of the story, but the guard was adamant to give her the (more…)

AUP Chronicles:How To Be Embarrassed in College

Go to the comfort room beside Records and Admissions Office, and rush your way in while reminding yourself that your bladder is going to blast after few seconds. Quickly opening the cubicle door, you meet the honorable president of the school making his way out of the cubicle and finding you on his way; thus, giving you his gratifying smile. But because you’re too occupied by the thought of an exploding bladder, you smile back at him awkwardly.

But the truth is, if you ever had the chance to talk that time, your first words will be, “i hav tu pee mama mia”

Walking on The Sidewalk

It has been a month since I’ve walked on the windy sidewalks of Adventist University of the Philippines. Those sidewalks mark the steps I’ve taken from the first day to the last. They were steps which I didn’t expect in my life because I was expecting a different road to take. But alas, (more…)
