I woke up today past 12NN and I felt something peculiar. I am not used to waking up that late because for the past sem, I had to wake up at 4AM to attend my 7AM class.
All throughout this day, I did not do anything but watch afternoon shows on TV and check my Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts. I attended Sunday Mass though!! 🙂
My last school year had been a very fun, challenging and TIRING one. 🙂 I was elected Public Relations Officer of the student council in my college and boy did it tire and made me busier than the busiest bee! Though I admit that I had not been as effective and efficacious as the public relations officer, I can still say that at some point (hehe) I sacrificed my social, academic and love life for the College of Science. 🙂 (Oh dba? :)) Well, I can’t really afford not to!! I’d be totally screwed up by the Admin and my EB’s! 🙂 Worse, by the student body!!! There was an instance wherein the Dean didn’t want me to announce that there will be no classes due to a required activity for the students to attend to. As I was going up the third floor in the Main Building, I kept my head facing my feet praying no one will bitch slap me for not announcing that there were no classes! Fortunately enough, students were just disappointed and did not become outrageous! Boy am I lucky! 🙂
Being part of the executive board has its own downside BUT more importantly, it has also its GOOOOD side. 🙂 You get to have college shirts for free! Normally we would sell shirts for P150. 🙂 Also, you get to have VIP treatment and free tickets to university-wide and local-based events inside the campus! 🙂 AND it’s a good point in your résumé. 🙂 Although I got to experience all these, I regret that I didn’t exert great effort in being a student leader. I know I had so much more to give but I chose not to. The problem is whenever I am already in a certain situation, I often forget my goals and the things I have to do and achieve. Sad but hey, I can’t do anything about it!!! Except to not do it again! :))
Aside from being part of the student council, I also had my thesis defense. When I was in my first year in college, I was very amazed with fourth year students who were doing their thesis and surpassing their defense. You see, among six courses in the College of Science, many consider Psychology as something hard to survive in. Yes, I am aware that others say that it’s the easiest course in the College of Science BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK. Many students shift to my course because at first, they thought that it was easy but when they have shifted already, hahaha sorry you’ll waste your time shifting to another course again! 🙂
Only Psychology has three on-the-job training requirements per sem; Industrial Psychology, Educational Psychology and Clinical Psychology. We had to spend 100 hours for each OJT every sem not to mention having our thesis and for me, on top of that, I had to do my council responsibilities. But hey, no regrets because I had so many experiences and learnings that I would not gain if not for my OJTs. 🙂 So kudos to every Psych major for surpassing all this! 🙂
Now, I have no plans nor assignments nor anything to do tomorrow. I am officially a bum until my graduation! 🙂 I just hope I’d find a decent and good-paying job soonest! 🙂 N
