My Hard Work For The First Semester Has Finally Paid Off.
Hello, readers; it's been a while since the last time I posted an update. I have been busy with the academic activities our school has undertaken. We have already started the second semester, which will kill our lives again. Aside from the raging second semester, I have already seen the Certificate of Grades that holder our grades. At first, I was terrified and nervous because I had waited for so long for it. I experienced many 501 Gateways and unidentified-captchas before I finally saw my grades. We got annoyed by the school site first. But the long wait had paid off as I saw the fruit of my success, finally, after months of breakdowns and late nights that I have encountered. Eventually, after sleepless nights of thinking about how I could balance my condition and studies had finally paid off.
Look what I have got. I got an academic award! I am a college scholar for the first semester! This is a significant achievement for me because I used to have a literary award in senior and junior high school. Continuing it in college is not easy because I may say that college is three times harder than the education levels below it. Achieving such a thing proves that I could still do better next semester if I worked harder.
As you can see, I have at least passing grades in Math. Well, I think I deserved it because of my performance in this subject since I started to go to school when I was a kid. Math is the 'killer of my dreams' because of how hard that subject for me is and if we recall my past reports cards, mathematics is the only subject that has a line of 8, and the rest was beyond higher than that. I have no tears to show for it because I know I deserved it. I am grateful for what I received.
The raging semester we are experiencing now is a sign that I need to be more eager than last semester. There is still room for trials and errors, but the errors may be my way of correcting if they will come my way again. The trials may be my guide for a better "next time" I know I will fix it; they will come to happen again. I am aiming more this semester. We have no math in our course, so I think I could focus on the parts I know would be my strengths. Essays and reflections would be lighter for me as I learned many techniques from the last semester. It might be easy, but I know it would be still a challenging one. That was the lesson for me; I should not be unconcerned about things I know I could do because it might also be my fall. To not let it happen, I must think all things equivalent and show my passion for it.
In the next semester, I am aiming for a university scholarship. I offered it now to myself, but I would be grateful for my mother, who is always there, giving her never-ending and endless love until my life ends. In the next semester, I will become bolder to take the challenge for myself. I might be the weak me as I enter this college, but I promise and reflect on myself that I will be stronger than I was before. There might be days that I get down, but that is part of the process; there is no happiness if you look to the other side of the coin. This might sound difficult to accomplish, but taking this comfortable might help until the next semester, self. Let's go for the University scholar you promised you would get for your mother.
