I’m baaaaaaaaaaack!

I’ve been away from this blog for what feels like a really long time. It’s so good to be back. I’ve missed writing. Anyway, I’ve been kinda busy with work (Yes, I am employed now. Hooray!) and my old laptop broke down. It’s sad because I had that laptop for more than four years. That’s long for a laptop, right?

As I’ve said, I’ve been kinda busy with work. Although I have no work during weekends, I don’t have enough time for leisure during weekdays. I live in Quezon City and work in Makati. I don’t mind the travel since I love travelling. But sometimes the commute makes me tired. At first, I ride the bus but nowadays the traffic is so heavy it makes me late for work for a few times already. So I decided to take the MRT. But man, the queue! I feel like I spend more time waiting for than train than actually being in the train. A commuter life is such a hard life.

The most awesome thing happened last March. I passed the Electronics Engineering board exam! OH YEAAAAAAAH! I got a Conditional status last December so I have to take one subject in March. Yey! This makes every one in the family and my circle of friends so happy. Hihi.

Thirty days

Sa tingin mo, mahaba o maikli ang isang buwan?

Minsan parang ang tagal matapos ng isang buwan. Tulad na lamang kung may hinihintay ka, ‘yung tipong parang wala kang ibang pwedeng gawin kundi maghintay. Minsan naman parang ang bilis. Lumipas na lang ang mga araw nang hindi mo namamalayan.

Sa buhay ko ngayon, parang nabibilisan ako sa paglipas ng araw. Hindi ko nga namalayan na meron na lang pala akong tatlumpung araw para mabasa, ma-recall at makabisado ang mga napag-aralan ko na dati. Saktong tatlumpung araw na lang kasi magtetake na ako ng board exam. Medyo nahihirapan nga ako. Chill lang kasi akong estudyante dati. Gusto kong pumasa, syempre, pero hindi ako ‘yung tipong subsob talaga sa pag-aaral. ‘Pag napasa ko na ‘yung subject, karamihan dun nakalimutan ko na. Ang dami ko tuloy kailangan aralin ulit.

‘Yung isang buwan na natitira para maaral ko lahat ng kailangang aralin pakiramdaman ko fourth quarter ng isang basketball game, tapos ako ‘yung tambak na team. Tambak na ko ng mga topics na babasahin at formulas na kailangang makabisado. ‘Yung ang dami-dami kong kailangan habulin kung gusto kong manalo ‘pag tumunog na ‘yung buzzer. Ito ‘yung sitwasyon na kailangan manalo sa fourth quarter. No to overtime. Kailangan isang take lang, pasado na. Nakakahiya kasi sa pamilya ko. Kahit hindi nila sabihin para ‘di ako mapressure, alam ko namang gusto na nila akong magtrabaho.

On Fiction And Board Exam

I think I have to lie low reading fiction for a while. I am going to take a licensure exam on October so I have to focus on studying. Most of my classmates are really studying now. I feel like I’m the only one left that’s procrastinating. Hahaha! Since I badly want to pass the exam (who doesn’t?), I have to study well. I need to recall so many theories and stuff because I don’t really study that much in college. Hihi. It’s just a little sacrifice compare to what I would achieve if I nailed the exam. This is for my parents. I want to make them proud. Please pray for me! :)

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

GRAD

Someone once told me that if I enrolled in a private university, I may not finish my degree since we don’t have a lot of money. She had discouraged me but I don’t care. I wanted to study Engineering in my choice of school. Now, I have proved her wrong. My parents and I made it!

ECE ON TOUR

Last Wednesday (12/05/12), we had our first field trip for our subject Field Trips And Seminars. We went to Philippine Information Agency at Visayas Avenue, Quezon City. Here are some pictures from the trip.

Next stop: NBN

We’re so lucky! We saw Snow Badua while he was taping for a show. Too bad we didn’t manage to have a picture with him because he looked like he was in a hurry.

Group pictures! :)Image

With Engr. Yu (left) and Engr. Isla (right). Engr. Isla was the one who guide us aound NBN. We learned so much from him. And since one of my options is to be a broadcast engineer, I find everything he shared to us very interesting.

Some solo pictures.

And that’s it! :)
