Crossed Fingers for the Last Semester

Two universities. Three courses. Five years. After everything that I've been through in college, I think March 2012 is the right month for me to graduate. I don't plan to extend it any longer. All that I want is to give mom and dad my diploma as soon as possible. Nothing is more important than making them feel happy and proud. I know, deep in my heart, that they deserve it.

Ever since I started studying for college, I never heard them demand anything from me. When I chose to take BS Biology at the University of the Philippines in Mindanao, they agreed and supported me with my decision. That time, I really wanted to become a Biologist or a Medical Doctor. But having attended the classes and performed lab experiments, I began to realize that it wasn't meant for me. So, I asked my parents if I could transfer to another university and shift to a new course. Again, without long negotiations, they granted my wish. I was enrolled at Ateneo de Davao University under the School of Business and Governance. I took up BS Accountancy which I started to really love. However, somewhere along the way, I experienced things I never wanted to. After a year of being an Accountancy student, I decided to shift again for a new course which is BS in Commerce and Management Accounting. Again, my parents backed up for the new decision I made. They never stopped believing in me despite all the inconsistencies that I had for the previous years.

To return all the good things my parents did for me, I promise myself that BSC-MA is going to be my final degree. So far, everything has been running smoothly and I only have one semester to go.  Hopefully, I will be able to finally attend my own graduation ceremony. As the title says, "Crossing fingers for the last semester." This time, I will never let anything get into the scene. I will pass the 15 units left and soon hand my diploma to the persons who never left me - Mama Gina and Papa Albert.

All my classes for the second semester are scheduled on the days of Tuesday and Thursday every week. I have no classes for the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. My on-the-job training will also start on January 2012. This means that I could still keep an update of my blog without affecting my studies!
