Finally, I'm in Graduate School!!

Saturday, August 19, 2017

If you already read my previous post entitled "Self-pity", you'll notice that I am aiming to be admitted in the graduate school of the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB).
It was my dream to pursue my career in graduate school under the program of Masters of Science in Microbiology to a prestigious university.

I worked hard to passed all the requirements for the admission for the first semester. I cried a lot because of those people who didn't believe in me, who criticized and judged me. I feel so hopeless and weak that time but I didn't give up. I worked hard and pray.
At first, I really had a hard time in completing those requirements because they are some people who didn't help me to accomplish it. However, I am still thankful because they made me, even more, stronger and motivated.

I already attended two job interviews while waiting for my admission and luckily, I was accepted by those two companies but my priority is to pursue my graduate school, so I still waited for the admission.

Finally, the long wait is over! I am accepted!! Though, it took 1 month and a half before I received the Notice of Admission from the graduate school of UPLB. Maybe, because I passed all my requirements very late due to the late release of newly-graduated student requirements from Cavite State University (CvSU). At first, I really can't believe that it is really happening to me. Pero ayun! Nangyari nga, natanggap ako. Thank you, Lord!! Sobrang saya ko talaga! Until now, hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na nandito na ako. 

Life lesson: Don't give up on your dreams. Just keep pushing no matter what happens. You might experience criticism and discrimination, but it's okay. Don't let those words fall you down. Instead, make those words to be a better and stronger version of yourself. Dreams are just dreams until you achieved and live with it, that's the time it will become the reality of your life.
I am happy to be surrounded by great, talented, smart and good-hearted beautiful ladies. My roommates! :)
