Thank You Zillionth X!

Philippians 1:6, Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Let me recall what had happened half a decade ago…

I was asked by my folks about my college plans which tempted me to be so firm in taking IT. ‘Ma IT ako ah! Kabalo na ko ya mag computeeeher!’ And there it went together with my parent’s approval because in 2009, IT boomed to an explosion, triggered my curiosity toward computers and stuff related. I hate to admit but when Mrs. Valsado interviewed me after passing the entrance exam and asked me why I chose IT (of all courses) I answered with a firm “..because I wanted to design a website!” Later did I come to my senses nga fourth year pa gali ang Web Design nga subject! Imagine ang apat ko ka tuig nga hulat just for that dream!

I struggled to survive It – for real. Ngaa?! Wala gd ko ya kabalo nga mang program program gli sa IT.

I failed twice to two subjects where I found to be so strange – C++ and Computer Electronics.

C++ was so strange because I can’t bear the integration of the pseudocoding to the real programming… or because my ‘close mindset’ issue enters in. (When I don’t like a thing I won’t focus to it. Kag nagaka kontento naman ko ya sa kun ano man lang ang grade ko) I also felt traumatized whenever my Instructor would discuss some alien topics and let you kiss him when you violate some rules. In my case – I always come to the class late and thus a kiss on the cheeks made my day so in a bad mood. Not a good scenario to study well. I hated programming and I can’t visualize my life 10 in the future in this field.

Next subject to fail me (or better yet, I FAILED TO) was the Computer Electronics. I don’t know why or maybe because of wrong timing – with the subject itself or of the teacher. I complied with all the requirements and had grades nga pwede naman mka pasar kun dugangan sang Human Consideration. I admit twas my fault man kun nga na frustrate ako sang bonga. Abi ko HS pa nga papasaron ko nila ky indi ko abi believer sang 5.0 that time. When the releasing of grades came I eagerly approached my teacher who was busily playing a computer game in his desk and asked about my grade status, he replied “Ay, Leving… uhm.. singko ka”.. pagkatapos ya lantaw sang final exam score ko… Way na ni chansa.. singko ni..” I was so shocked, yet I still managed to answer him back, “Ti my project man ko Sir.. Pasar man ko sa practical kg quizzes..” Ay, kag adto, wala nya na ako gd sapak.

That was the time that I finally gulped what college was – Professors won’t waste nor give their time to students not on their line of attention; 5.0 is possible; negotiating with a Prof requires right timing; You have to deal with frustration (it is inevitable.)

After two years and many times nga likaw kg panago, na teacher ko liwat si Sir kag nabal an ko kun ngaa gn fail nya ako or should I say kmi – ky first time sya gli naka hatag 5.0… abaw nanamian. Trip2 ya lang gali. Hamakon nga duha ko katuig gn move on-an! Wew. LIFE!

In college, I had my own bunch of lessons learned (ask when needed, speak when you wanted to be heard, keep quiet when you’re wrong and apologize after, do what you’re assigned to and laugh when your right), opportunities valued (CHS NC II passed and Career Service Professional Exam aced!), mistakes corrected (I became complacent in our thesis where my only task was to document everything), subjects failed, repeated, complied and passed.

As I search for my life’s purpose and God’s will sa akon kabuhi, kun ngaa nkatapos ako sa IT nga kurso let me thank the people nga nangin instrumento sang Ginoo sang iya kayo sa akon:

To my College Instructors, Profs and Teachers sa ila pag mold sa akon, biskan abi nila wala sila impact sa amon – there is! Naging strong and matured kmi sa pag atubang sang amon future nga pag gawi sa kalibutan. Thank you Sirs and Ma’ams! Indi ko na kmo pag ngalan tag isa isa. Hehehe. Naukit naman kmo sa akon heart.
