Happy yet sad that this is the last topic that i need to discuss here. I wanna first thank my prof, Ms. Espiritu for giving us this task. Not only because we are saved from midterms and finals but also because, through this, i’ve got to know myself more. I learned and realized a lot with all the topics she assigned to us. Like for example about my personal goals. She made me realized that i should really have to know what is my purpose in life. Now, i have this clear picture of what i really want to happen, my plans after graduation. At least, i know what’s the real reason why do i have to study so hard!
Going back to the topic, My Green Experience. Well so far, i could say that i’m having fun. It was great to meet new friends. Facilities are modernized and innovative. The school is nice. But it’s not perfect. Honestly, i hate that the main campus have only one elevator. And also, i hate the cafeteria. I dunno but they always have the SAME MEAL everyday! -_- But sometimes, thank God it doesn’t matter when you are with your friends. I so love my new friends. Hoping they love me too. Hahaha korny thought. Anyway, my first term doesn’t stress me that much. I got high grades. And i love it! Although i still have to keep in mind that college is way more different from highschool. I have to take this seriously. I have to get back the benifit of the high tution i paid for.
So far, my so called “college life” is good. I love the school like i don’t want to transfer anywhere else. I’ve pictured out what i want already and the school is part of it. The only problem is i don’t know if my mother can support me financially all through out. The tution is very expensive. :( But! I shouldn’t take that as a hindrance. Trying to avoid being pessimistic. Last thing about the topic, I really had fun being part of CSB. It was so great to be back school after 8 months of staying doing nothing at home. Csb is ♥
Hi! Well this is a new topic again!! =) Last topic was about Time Management. I wasn’t able to put a number of ways of how to manage my time because, i don’t have that much reason to cram or what. In fact, i have lots of free time than the “busy” time. I mean, my professors don’t give tons of homeworks/projects yet. Though, if they’re some, I always make sure to finish everything when i get home. (just like what i’ve said in my previous post)
The topic assigned for this week is to identify my stressors. Hmmmm. I don’t how will i start this. My stressors, i think first is, my stay here at the dorm. Yes, you read it right! EVERYDAY i feel like i’m stress thinking of what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I consider it as a problem! Also, when doing some chores like washing plates every after meal, cleaning up the room and other. It’s like i feel so alone. I always have to do everything on my own because no one else will do it for me. And I’m like, WTH! >,<
Another is whenever i’m on my way to school, i often get pissed off to the drivers who don’t have an heart! Like when i’m trying to cross the street, they won’t really stop even just for a while and some we’re speeding up their car, result, i took a step back. They act like they own the street? What’s wrong with stepping on a break for a second and let me or the other student or the other people cross? Maybe it’s just I’m not used to it. In Laguna, most of the drivers are so kind to let you cross first. See? My point is it won’t even take a lifetime. It’s just for a second. -,- You may seem like this’ so nothing but it’s a big deal for me. Oftentimes they ruin my day.
Another thing is when professors assign works that must be done by a group. I found it hard doing things with a group. Not everyone is willing to cooperate. I find it harder :/
Anyway, last thing. FINALS is near! More projects! More assignments! More tasks! THIS’ REAL STRESSOR!
Hope it explained it all.
HOW TO COPE WITH THIS?
Whenever i’m stress, i just eat my favorite food. Chocolates and Ice Cream. Hm, yummy! Then, happy again. Or sometimes, going out with friends. I know that there is no wrong in ‘chillin’, having fun or relaxing with them. Student like me also deserves to have a break from the ‘school world’. You know, that is really the main reason of stress! But, inspite all that chillin stuff, of course i know my limitation. It is important to know your priorities as early as possible, so i, myself have picture it out in my mind and like stuck it in it to remind me always.
Well, honestly, my schedule at this term, my first term was really good. I mean, i still don’t feel that cramming or hectic schedule yet. I don’t know if this is because i can handle my time well or maybe it’s because i’m at my first ever term in college so professors wouldn’t give us too much work. I really don’t know. As a student of course that’s so in favor with me. :)
We haven’t given tons of homeworks or projects yet but we still received some. I stay at a dormitory. I’m always bored. I have more free time than working/busy time. I don’t know what must i do that’s why, sometimes, i am forced to reread my notes which luckily i benefited after! So i advice you guys to reread your notes when you’ve got nothing else to do. It’s good. Haha. I proved it myself. So there, everytime we were given homeworks, i make it a point to finish it as soon as i arrived home(dorm).
I don’t do time management now, i think. But i could say something in case i’ll be having lots of work in weeks or months after. Just like what i said from the previous paragraph, once the work is assigned, finish it as early as possible. Avoid finishing a thing during last minute or you’ll cram. And atleast when other professor gave you another work, you could just focus your time on that not worrying about pending works because you’ve done it early. You got the point?
Some people look at it hard. I mean, managing their time. Well, i don’t have a social life *sad* the reason why i always have lots of time. So far, i am really into studying. My highshool friends will surely don’t believe to this but yes it’s so true. It seems weird but i love studying just now. Im aiming to become a dean’s liser. Hopefully!!
You know what, if you are really into a thing, often you would find time for it. Wouldn’t you? Anyone would find time and make an effort in such a thing they love. So i guess as long as you enjoy what you’re doing, go for it. It is always up to you. But just don’t forget to still take care of your body. Give yourself a time to rest. It is your foundation to everything so you have to take good care of yourself always especially when you are like me that no one else will. Make use of your time well. Think!
Live your life to the fullest. Not to the ‘foolest’. It is different.
Daily Life for one week of a Benildean student.
Okay. That’s all! :)
What are your academic and personal goals for the term? How do you plan to achieve them?
This is my first time in college so I feel like im innocent, immature or whatever from others. I’ve been in the section/s in which most of the students were tranferees. I thought it would be hard but i understand that most of us are new in the school so everyone will do some adjustments too.
My perspective about college life was this will be more stressful than highschool. I was like, “Okaaaay”. I don’t find any reason though to waste time on anything but study. This is now the start. Start of building a good record for my future;good career; success. DLS-CSB is one of the expensive schools here in Manila. I should have known how to value my mother’s sacrifices just to send me to school. That’s the reason why, since from the start(day one), I have known my purpose or goal in entering college. My family, especiall my Mom as my inspiration, I’m doing my best to get high grades as possible. I wanna be part of “Dean’s Lister”. Actually a scholar, but i don’t know how. I’m not that really talented so all i can do is to study hard and hopefully someone in the school would refer me to be a scholar. I’m not assuming but there’s still a little hope. Being part of ”Dean’s Lister” would be a great achievement for me as a student, and ofcourse, it would make my parents proud.
But before everything else, i know that i have to double my work and be resposible enough. I’m not that super genuis but with responsiblity, hardwork and faith, i know i could possibly make it. Im eager. My friends could prove you my dedication just to be part of it. Finals isn’t over yet. I’m still trying my best and hopefully, i won’t disappoint myself. Let’s just see the result in next few months.
