Life Update: School’s Out!

Hello everyone! May I just say, I have really missed writing on this blog- aka my little corner in the online world! I have really missed it and of course, I have also missed reading your blogposts because I have surely missed a lot! Anyway, I’m back to my life update post because this is the kind of post that I do every time I’ve been away or if I have achieved something in life. Haha! My last life update was when I got a laptop and you can just click this to view it. Hehe shameless plug. Anyway enough with the looong introduction, let’s go on with the post instead!


This is what I feel right now. Free. I am done with school, guys! I am so done with this academic year and I am never coming back!!! But before anything else I would like to share everything since the beginning of March or should I say the 5th of March because if I didn’t do this chronologically, then I’d probably rant endlessly and pointlessly on how tough the school year was. So let’s start.

March 05, 2018 was the first Monday of March. And it was the hottest week ever in our school year. Not literally hottest, but every schoolwork has a deadline on that week specifically on Friday, March 9th. Imma start off with our Practical Research (PR) subject. It’s the toughest subject that I have encountered so far aside from the Maths that I encounter every school year. PR was so hard, honestly it is! We were tasked to do a qualitative research and our chosen topics was about the experiences of psychometricians. Believe me guys, we started having that PR at the beginning of 2nd semester which was on August or September I can’t really remember but yeah. Our first topic was about psychiatrists but unfortunately, no psychiatrists were available or willing to let us conduct a personal interview with them. So let’s say October was the start of PR, and we just did the papers on the last week- on the deadline week!! We basically wasted 5 months of waiting for emails or feedback about the psychiatrists. I have had a lot of emotional breakdowns because I can’t find time anymore. Trust me, guys, I had a whole week straight that I got to sleep every 4 am and wake up at 5:30. How insane was that?!

But good thing, God is so good that he gave us our participants on the deadline week as well. We need 6 to 10 participants, and God kindly gave us 6. Sadly, we didn’t get to interview our participants personally but we’re still overwhelmed to have passed the papers on time and finish it on time.

Another subject I want to share on about was Statistics and Probability. We have the best teacher in this subject but the topics are just so hard and our teacher told us that we will report the remaining topics in the book. And we were like “wooooah?” Honestly, it was really hard to understand every lesson but good thing we managed to survive it. And I feel like that I have studied so hard in this subject because when our finals came, I found the exam easy.

Oop, another one about PR (we have two PRs one in English and one in Filipino but two different groups) that I want to rant on about is my groupmates. Some of them help in doing the papers but some of them are just living the time of their lives like there’s no deadline in passing. I was SO much frustrated and when the papers were finished, I had to pay 488 for the printing and for the ring bind. And the worst thing was, I received a lot of rants from them asking why they had to pay like 37 pesos. DUDE I WAS THE ONE THAT ADJUSTED. I deserve to rant. I wanted to shout at them all and be angry at them but good thing, they paid (HEHE).

Anyway, I might have a lot of breakdowns, of conflicts with my groupmates and teachers but one thing is for sure. I am so glad this school year is over.

One of my classmates had congratulated me for surviving the school year and I was so happy when she told me that. I was like damn girl, I did it. And it boosted my self esteem and happiness as well because I have been feeling so drained for the school year.


And now it’s my summer vacation- I have 3 months of break before I go to the 12th grade (which I’m not thinking about yet) so I’m gonna go and have lots of fun!!! I already have plans for this summer and I’m going to share with you my plans for this blog as well- maybe tomorrow!

Thank you so much for reading my rants. I hope it’s not pointless haha. Anyway really, thank you so much! And congratulations to everything that you have been achieving in life yourself. Continue to strive!
