Life as a Student

I’ve been out of school for so many years, that’s 3 years to be exact. Now that I’m back to school, I really thought it would be easy. However, ‘work plus school’ is never a scoop of ice cream. I work at 8am to 5pm and had a class at 6.30pm to 9.30pm EVERYDAY. I was very enthusiastic about it when i had the first period of class – and yes, it is a lecture period. Right there and then, we have a paper work due the next evening; imagine that?!

I told myself it’s better this way cos I’m really doing my best to finish my paper. Wow, I’m back to researching and studying. Didn’t I complain (awhile back) that my brain idled while not doing anything for the past years? Jeez, I did not complain, again, it is NOT a protest. It’s my first paper afterall, so no acrimony.

My first paper was handwritten bcos our teacher wanted to submit it in ‘quiz sheet’ (wth is it?). OK, quiz sheet – it is a paper used for quizzes and papers purposely made for students for that particular department or college at that certain University. Fine! I bought 5 sheets and started writing, and that’s where I started whining.

Surprisingly, I don’t know how to write using a pen anymore. My penmanship is terrible. My right hand is already numb. I wrote a total of 3 pages for that paper. I recheck my handwriting after and obviously, I am not pleased. When was the last time I wrote something that really long? All I can remember is signing thousands of students’ grades to be released – aside from that, nothing.

Moaning doesn’t end there, bcos right after I submitted my first paper, 2 papers are up again and due after 3 and 5 days respectively – that’s aside from another paper due on the same date as one of the book. I have to read Sun Tzu’s Art of War and Musashi’s Book of 5 Rings and make a paper about it. Yes, I read books but I only read books that caught my interest and most of it was fiction, love story and scientific fiction – factual books and philosophy are so out of my league. But what else I could do about it – nothing (right?!), but READ.

I finished my other Management theorist and theories paper (that is due tonight) and miss the Art of War’s paper. I’d like to shout, ‘WHO CARES?’ but I just can’t cos I CARE. Damnit! I really hope my teacher will allow an extension cos I really had a hard time looking for the book. I’ve found an e-copy this morning, read it while making my other management paper. I’m so occupied. Though my mind is really working, as in LITERALLY working, 2 papers due tonight ate me to death.

Actually, I had a small piece to submit about the Art of War if in case my professor won’t give me extension. Well, at least, have a little to submit.

So, here I am now – preparing to take off for school. It is already 5.30pm on my clock and I have 1 hour more to go. If you think, getting your ass back to school is great, I’d say – YES, it is! It’s challenging and demanding; such pressure sweats you and you don’t realized you’re (as if) heading back to your college life cramming to make papers done in a last minute... and it's so cool!

TRIVIA for the day!

I finally able to go back to a library…. And errr, to research!

Isn’t it amazing? =p

    now u know how it feels, my friend. when i was completing my academic requirements in the dcm program u were one of those friends who constantly teased me for my tardiness and absenteeism. not that i am telling you to do the same thing, i'm just telling u why i performed that way. but i think u could handle the same thing better than i did, ikaw pa na very focused.

    Well that doesn't sound all that pleasant. I think a lot of college students who don't have jobs don't understand how difficult it can be to get everything done sometimes. I hope you do your very best dear. After all of this is done there will be even more work and trouble but that's life.

You told Your close followers
who were taught how to seek the Father's heart
that whatever they asked for in prayer,
that they were to believe they received it
and it would be theirs. (Mark 11:24)

O, Father, help me to know Your heart intimately
so that I'll know how to pray,
what to pray,
and believe in advance
that I will receive it!
