Sa Wakas Graduate na jud Sila!

this year has been ever so fruitful and i felt blessed as i was given a chance to be part of my students’ journey (to stardom??? hehehe). last march 28, 2009, the 58th commencement exercises of brokenshire college was held at the cap auditorium. this has been the concluding rites for my CS 4th year students as they have finished all their academic requirements. whew!

i can vividly remember, (it was june of this academic year) the first meeting of our CS 401 thesis 1 class. everbody was excited, agitated...uhm mixed emotion kay graduating na lagi daw. after an hour of orientation in thesis writing and some pep talk, i shared my wishful thinking with them that "unta tanan jud mu sabay mag-graduate. pirmi man gud summerian ang mga cs…maayo pa ang mga it naa jud mugraduate pag-march". this has been our prayer since then.

for the first quarter of the semester, they are required to propose 3 titles/software projects. upon careful selection, panelists were able to choose one among the proposals and gave their recommendation for each individual or team project. for final quarter of the semester, they have undergone the thesis 1 defense. grabe! this is it!

then, second semester came along. at this time, they were expected to build and implement their proposed software project. mao na jud ni! sleepless nights, eye bags, dark circles around the eyes, overnights and over days came. some of them got sick because of stress and pressures. mao bitaw sige ta kaon everytime magcheck ta sa inyo theses. whew….makapurdoy na gud! hehehe.

thesis defense na jud! revisions...revisions...ug revisions pa jud...
i was with them, kina jollie...tapos kina bia na pud...whew!
maayo na lng abunda sa food! hehehe
i thought these will never end. pero nahuman ra pud! thank god!

all’s well that ends well.

we celebrated our victory with a feast!
strawberry ice cream, chocolate chips cookies and choco-strawberry filled cake and polvoron by goldilocks! salamat sa mga sponsors! last but not the least, party hopping after the graduation! ^^

from the bottom of my heart, congratulations to jollie ann baranggan, jhanikka bia faune, mary jane norab, rochen nacua, nilsgorette tabiosa and cristo rey suralta! don't stop chasing your dreams!

naa na jud manghud na mag-pulis, daddy ug mommy na lipay kau, brother na makapadayun ug eskwela, mama ug papa na mahuwasan kay graduate na jud ang anak after 7 years!, mama ug igsoon na masuporta-an ug proud na mama ug papa kay cum laude ang anak!
