This experimental thesis has taught me a lot about life, way more than what our experiment is really about. My major requires four theses in our curriculum and by far, this is the most stressful school work I have had. Why? Well I can take blame on this one. I relaxed too much and procrastinated, knowing that since I was able to complete my three theses already, I managed to convince myself that this would be way easier. WRONG! My group expected that this thesis was due to be submitted by next week. As a result, we planned to start doing it lang dapat today. One of my group mate is also on a training in Hong Kong (Sushal) for her new job and ako naman and my other group mate are pretty much busy with other requirements. Ayun chill na chill lang kami. However……..
Wednesday, March 25 8:00 am I received a text message from our professor… “April, the deadline for the encoding of grades is on Friday. You must present your paper on or before that day.” tandadanan!!! *insert here horror movie sound effect* Me: (kakagising lang) HALAAAAAA!!! EEEEKKKKKK!!!! (Sent messages to group mates) The biggest struggle with this paper was that I needed to have software that can run our data before it can be interpreted. AT OO WALA AKO NUN!!! Kaya may I panic na naman ako! For some reason, we had communication problems pa in our group and I was really pissed with that.

Ngiti ng tagumpay!!! =D Winner not just because we completed our thesis but because I’ve learned a lot…
1. I’ve learned to persevere despite all the struggles, pressure and fears.
2. I’ve learned to face my fear of rejection.
3. I’ve learned my lesson to never be complacent.
4. I’ve learned to never procrastinate.
5. Most importantly, I’ve learned to trust in what God can do. A midst my weaknesses and faults , He is always there to help and guide me. In fact, He sent me awesome classmates who helped me out. THANK YOU!!
