To Graduate or Not to Graduate?

After thesis, I had always been planning on writing something about “everything AMACC AC” since the day I first set foot on her, ’til the last days I have to walk around her corridors with a hopeful smile and pride that I’m finally graduating, thank heavens!

Much as it was the same with other students, the frightening reality of graduating at a campus you can’t even be proud of was spreading in the air like a disease that kills our hopes and interest to go to school. With each passing day, this same atmosphere greets us and instead of chasing the nightmare away, it seemed as if though it was chasing us. But then at the nearing end of our roads, we came to meet someone that slapped us to reality.

It was like we were asked the very question of “to graduate or not to graduate?” If you would be choosing the road to graduating, you’ll face a great trial ahead – one that you could not imagine. If you chose not to, the only place you are left to go is rot in college. Now, which would you choose? Of course, we chose to graduate. But the reality of not learning anything from the past years due to our own “kapabayaan” (responsibility) hit us hard and so we need to start all over again from scratch within a continuous running time hitting deadline. It’s a risk most of us took and succeeded on. Those that lost faith in their own capabilities are the once who failed. After all, no pain, no gain. There, we learned and proved the power of human mind to work more than its capacity under rough circumstances. And even though you might think you can’t make it, you can. You just have to take the risk and try.
