Why is everybody in a hurry to graduate?
SLOW DOWN AND SMELL THE ROSES!
But if you must insist.. just make sure that when you graduate, you’re going to get a stable job asap instead of just bumming around and I hope to god I won’t find you in the corner store near my school smoking with the other students.
I’ve had a handful of people asking me what subjects should the enlist for next term.. ano ako, adviser niyo?! JK. But if you’re going to ask me that question and still try to fit all 6 subjects in one term so you can graduate early, leave me alone, you’re just making me feel bitter about the whole situation that you are graduating next year and y’all will leave me behind.
Then again.. what’s to be bitter about? I’m going to stay in school for a little more time, learn more stuff about my course, learn new things, meet some new/old faces, pa-easy-easy lang (parang ang dali lang pag sinasabi siya, ano?) while you scour the streets of the metro looking for a job; just like looking for internship in OJT (this term!) only the difference now is you now hold in your hands the greatest responsibility of all:
Making money from your job and paying back the money your parents spent on you for putting you in this expensive institution.
I want to graduate early, I really do. But ever since flunking that subject back in first year, I knew my plans to early graduation were sabotaged. Heck, I might even take another summer class because I’m such a pussy to take this other subj in a regular term, I might fail it. Sorry, the “think positive” mentality will not work here, I tried it.. failed at it a couple times.
I’ve accepted the fact that I will graduate LATE. Right now, I don’t see what’s the big deal about it. It’s not like all these people in my batch wants the same thing (to graduate with the rest of us), not all of us have this straight plan of graduating on time, sometimes an unexpected twist of fate happens (say you get sucked in to the “usual” vices when you’re in college and things go haywire from there).
I remember in senior high school when our teacher announced that not all of us might graduate. We we’re all surprised. I, on the other hand, was not. On to the reactions of my classmates: Some were even willing to lend a helping hand to help our other classmates who were financially-disabled during that time to graduate.
See how most of us we’re concerned of each other during that time? Things aren’t like that in college. If you can’t graduate or having financial trouble in your academics, you look for a job to earn money or you turn to a dropout. Of course, if you’re really determined, you will really look deep and hard to get to that goal.
I don’t think I’m going to go past the MRP. So yes, I’m being chill, taking things one step at a time — hope this slowing things down plan works well for me. And doctor’s orders to not take full-load subjects, haha.
…the only downside to this is by then, maybe most of my friends have graduated already and I’ll be the only one left from our batch in this school in the graduation ceremony. Ang saklap nun. D:
Oh well, I’m already past the woe-is-me-I’m-graduating-by-myself-phase. Graduating alone? Graduating with knowing nobody in the crowd of kids 2-3 batches lower than you?
BRING IT ON.
