As you read my title you may find it familiar. Upon commenting on articles this morning I got to encounter the article of @Eirolfeam2 which tackled an interesting topic for honor student. She got the idea from @kingofreview's article. It caught my interest so I'm making my entry about this one. But before I start my article I just want to ask if how are you all after the typhoon? I'm hoping that there's not much cassualties brought by the typhoon. First week of September and we've faced two typhoons already but here we are standing still and fighting strongly in order to survive in the middle of this pandemic.
The resiliency of Filipinos will never be defeated by the likes of typhoons and other calamities. I'm pinoy and I'm proud to be standing strong in times of crisis, not forgetting to smile. Stay strong my fellow filipinos. Fightuuuuu..
My mother was so strict to me when it comes to studying so as a result of that I attained one of the highest top which is Valedictorian back in elementary. It's not an easy journey for I've heard a lot of earful sermons came from my mother while studying in elementary. Actually I don't have any plan in mind to dream to be on top but it just happened without me realizing that I've been competing for the position. We can always be a valedictorian in our career and it's just a matter of perseverance and patience.
Back in grade two, I lost the postion of first place in third grading but I regain it in fourth grading. That incident made my mother very angry to me. I've learned a lot of lessons from that. In attaining the highest rank you must be prepared ny the consequences of it later. It can have advantages and disadvantages. It made my parents proud and ofcourse me, I'm proud to myself that afterall the struggles,I achieved it.
What is the lowest top you attained?
The lowest was back in my Junior and Senior highschool days wherein I've top 15 in junior high and top 20 in senior high. Highschool life was the best moments in my career as a student. What I only knew back then was simple words taught in elementary but as I've step into the new stage, I've learned a lot. In those moments also I've met and witnessed various intelligent students accross the region. Many of my classmates in senior high was from the nearby provinces. Mainly the province of Isabela and Ifugao.
The competition became more difficult for there's so many valedictorians and salutotarians inside the class. It's challenging but it was fun.
What is the highest average you got?
The highest average I got when I'm still studying was in elementary and junior hgh which is 97. Getting that kind of grade back then was very difficult but as of now that the learning style of students changed to modular. It became easy because no one is restricting them from browsing the internet for correct answers and the likes.
Since I shared the highest average, I'll share also the lowest and that is 81. You may wonder why got that grade, on the brink of axe ( wasay in ilokano). Well I got that grade second sem back when I was in grade 11. I got into a serious problem and had a serious breakdown which affected my mental health. I'll tell you friends, when the enemy is your mental health you expect it to be the most nighmare of your life. It's base from me and I don't know from others. Depression is not an easy enemy.
Did you represent your school in various contest?
Back in my elementary days I'm one of the contestants in different competitions. Most of the Quiz bees back then, I'm the representative. I've won first place several times and participated in Divisions but it looks like that there are too much that I don't know yet. I ended up winning the 5th place or 3rd place sometimes.
Just like what they always said, in this game you may win and you may lose also. It's just a matter of not giving up.
Do you have rivals back then?
Ofcourse I had and he was my friend. The salutotarian back in elementary. He's my friend and the competition for the throne of valedictorian was intense but we are not set assiding our friendship because those awards can never be our friends for life.
What time do you usually review back then?
Having reviews back then was a real struggle because you need to reaf your notes books and many more. Finding pages of your thick books just to fnd the answer for a certain problem. But now it became easy because it's just a matter of clicks. Before exams back then I go home early then I scan my notes and books. I also woke up early in the morning to refesh what I scanned.
Your greatest fear for becoming an honor students.
My greatest fear back then was failing and having grades of line 7 but the one I most feared was to lose my friends just because I'm a top students. I don't want them to feel being left. I always want to stay that way wherein friendships don't have labes.
And with the last question been answered, that concludes my article for this day and I want to thank you for reading this far. If you want to make one of this topic then feel free.
