I have a new hostee, say hello to my schoolmate, Alrenz! 😀 (It seems that I can’t see your site properly at FF though, I don’t have IE.. Waah.) [/edit]
Maybe I’m the last blogger who’s going to say this but.. BITCHES I’M FREE!! I’m finally off school and I have exactly one month to enjoy my summer vacation! Screw CSB for their trimester system that’s keeping me from enjoying summer because our classes last until 2nd-3rd week of April! Anyway since it’s over now, let’s move on shall we?
It seems to me that in our school the finals examinations comes out just like a breeze to the students and we don’t pay much attention to it. Or maybe it’s just me who has this “thought”? Take myself for example, I did not bother to study seriously with my subjects this term and I passed every subject! Well, enough to pass myself BUT the grades were not enough to get myself be a Dean’s Lister this term. I guess I was able to pay sufficient attention in my classes this term compared to last term when I was with my blockmates. I was pretty much silenced with the fact that my classmates are new and it would be very embarrassing if I would make a scene like before with my original blockmates. Gotta miss the immature block of batch 2007, DV7! Hahahaha! The yelling, screaming, fickle, noisy, abnormal kids of CSB!
My schedule for the finals exam was pretty awesome, since I didn’t have Business Math or Algebra or any Math subjects, my tests were only scheduled on Tuesday and Wednesday. Most of my friends and blockmates were complaining that they feel they’re going to fail their test on Math because most of the items included on the test weren’t discussed to them. Pretty much that was the topic last Tuesday and I just went blank because I could not relate, for real. Well, I have 2 and a half years to enjoy terms/semesters without Mathematics because I’m planning to re-take my Algebra & Business Math when I reach senior year. Actually my list of general subjects to take in senior year are piling up, it’s supposed to be those 2 Math subjects only but since I did not take this last Religion subject and Dance this term, might as well fit them somewhere when my subjects are not too hassling for me.
Course card giving day came a day after our finals, may I just say that I was thisclose to being a Dean’s Lister this term?! I wasn’t really paying attention to the whole DL thing until one of my blockmates brought it up when she looked at the course cards that I claimed and said, “Anna, if the next course cards you get have the grade of 2.5-up, you can be a DL!”. There, that started my optimistic view that I will get grade of 2.5-up.
La Salle’s grading system is like this:
4.0 being the highest grade
1.0 to 0.0 being the lowest grade
2.5 requirement grade to be a Dean’s Lister
First day of course card giving day, I got — 2.5, 4.0, 2.5 and today was the last day of it (and of the term as well) and I got — 3.5, 2.5, 2.0! Dang, all my hopes CRUSHED with that stupid 2.0 grade from my Filipino professor. Seriously, fuck him! I firmly believe that I did my best on his subject and I think it’s pretty unfair that he gave me that grade. Teachers don’t normally make a big deal of lates but he does, that probably ruined everything! I hated how he makes a big ass deal out of it. He shouldn’t be that strict with us at all. Meh, my rating on him serves him right — if only I knew I’d be getting a grade like this I would’ve lowered his rating more. GPA = 2.83, should be at least 3.0 to be included in the Dean’s List. Oh well.
I would like to thank my friend Chie for making me feel better not being a DL this term. Maybe she’s just too cool for it, but she was a dean’s lister for 2 terms (not 2 consecutive terms alright? it was separate). Lucky her! I’ve ran out of chances to bring myself to the Dean’s List, subjects next term are harder compared to these. Like she said.. don’t pressure yourself, enjoy college because you’ll surely miss it when you graduate! But it does not necessarily mean that having a grade of 1 (for trimester system schools) or grade of 4 (for non-trimester system schools) means everything’s alright already. Of course if you think you can do better then do it! Don’t be such a happy go lucky person who’s satisfied with just a passing grade. 🙂
What I really want to point out in this blog entry is…. I’M GONNA BE A SOPHOMORE STUDENT NEXT MONTH!! I’m still trying to make it “sink in”, you know? For now, it only feels like another term of Freshman year, but it’s not. I’ll be staying at the SDA building by that time, soo yay!! And now that freshman year is officially over.. I feel like crying for surviving a year in college! Hahaha, drama! I honestly thought I wouldn’t survive, I’m a loser like that. First, I’m lucky to be a part of a block where the people are like me! Hahaha. Second, de-blocking means facing college by yourself (if by unfortunate chances you didn’t get to enroll yourself in the same schedule like your barkada or friends — like me) and pretty much going back to square one. I hated that feeling when I have to go through crowds by myself, guess I’m not THAT anti social after all! 😐 Being alone was the worst! But I’m glad I got to make new friends and I got to know people whom I never talked to last term (and before) and then became close friends with them — something I never thought would ever happen! If these people I got to know this sem get to read this, HI AND THANKS. 😉 I would mention people but then again, I’m shy. 😳
By the way, I tried to make a new layout but I failed. Huhuhu, layout block perhaps? Ay lintik! Maybe later.. or next next week, when I stimulate my creativity or something like that. Later days!
