a record of my journey through hell aka college life

Crossroads?

Hello. It’s been a while since my last post. I feel like I owe this blog so many stories about what’s happening in my life. Well, I do. There has been tons of blog-worthy events that have happened but to be honest, I have no idea why I was so lazy to write about them haha. Anyway, I’m writing now so, yeah.

I’m at a crossroads right now. Well, not really, because standing at a crossroads, I think, means that you have to choose between options that are already existing. In my case though, three of the options I should have been facing are pretty much not yet solid. The time I have been dreading for a year has come. The time when I would make the final decision as to what university should I really get into to pursue my studies. I already submitted my applications to UP Los Baños and UP Diliman, and I have yet to e-mail the ADMU dean for academic affairs regarding my intent for readmission.

If I were to very honestly answer the question “Where do you want to study?”, I would say “Of course, I still want to study and graduate from ADMU.” It was my dream school after all, and more than being my dream school, I saw how quality education is there. The type which when I graduate, I know I would really have a secure and promising future. The student life and culture there is also very interesting. It is unlike any school atmosphere I have ever encountered. So far from what it’s like in the provincial college where I am currently enrolled.

It has been over a year since I got dismissed, but up until now I still cannot forgive myself for throwing away whatever promising future I was supposed to have during my stay in the Ateneo. But also within that year, I proved to myself that I can do better. I focused all my attention to studying and indeed, I was able to show myself that if only I had the right attitude, I can perform to the standards of a university. I have realized the mistakes I have made in the past and I have learned so much from them. I am a better person and I just hope that I can convince the dean about this. I badly want to get readmitted.

But of course, nothing is ever certain. It is not sure whether I will pass the screening for UPLB and UPD, nor 100% positive that the dean from ADMU will give me another chance to prove that I am worthy to be studying there.

I stand at this road where at the end, is not really a crossroad, but a tangle of paths. I stand perplexed and afraid. Afraid that should the tangled paths blur more or worse, completely disappear, I would be trapped at this road which I don’t want to take. Scared that I would be stuck in a path where I know I wouldn’t grow to the fullest. Still, I have hope that the time when the tangled paths are smoothed will come. I have hope that I can travel the way in which I would be happiest and most contented.

So hi this is how I make a draft of my research report lol. I reaaaaaally can’t think of anything to write yet. I mean, I have this like skeleton of my paper in my head but I can’t figure how to put flesh into it? I don’t know, my brain usually works at its best during 12AM onwards. I am basically just a walking amoeba during the day, my brain is empty and hollow haha. Argggh I am so frustrated right now I want to get this paper over so I can watch Heirs yet here I am procrastinating AGAIN and prioritizing blogging than finishing this damned research report.

I’ve got Ellie Goulding playing in the background, by the way. I have been singing ‘Burn’ nonstop for weeks and I figured why not listen to her album. ‘Halcyon Days’ is on loop for hours now. Guys Ellie Goulding’s music is dope! I don’t usually go for music of this genre but I don’t know there’s just something in her songs that kind of like sucks me in. Maybe this is why I can’t focus on writing my paper lol. I’m too engrossed in listening to her songs that my thoughts just kinda fly and dance away with the melodies. HAHAHA HA HA H A HA ………………. …… …………… . . . . ..

I am Master Procrastinator

I chose to write this entry over my never-ending pile of homework. Oh, I have a great sense of priority over the things in my life. Let’s see, what do I have in line…

  • cause-effect essay that is already three days late
  • first draft for the persuasive essay
  • twenty more note cards for my research report
  • eng research report (which i haven’t written a single word on)
  • polsci second long exam
  • algebra homework
  • lecture on waste management
  • photo project for polsci
  • interview for bill of rights for polsci
  • fil research report on jargons

So, yeah. I made the right decision to prioritize blogging over my nile-river-list of school stuff to do. I deserve to be applauded and cheered for, yep, because I am such a good stud- oh wait, because I am such an expert when it comes to procrastinating. See, this post does not even make any sense yet I don’t want to leave this because I don’t want to face reality yet /procrastinating/.

TANGINA I know I have to abandon the internet for a while so I can focus on studying BUT WHY. CAN’T. I. DO. THAT. NOW. FOR FUCK’S SAKE!! !! !!!!!

Please, I beg you all. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE SLAP MY FACE HARD WITH A CHAIR AND A TABLE? That way maybe some sense may be knocked out of me.
