Whoa! Exams are indeed necessary evils! For these past few days, I was out of net connection and was spending intimate moments with my notes and volumes of books. I was spending day in and day out trying to put everything in my head to be able to equip myself in our midterm examinations. Ah, I could not imagine how I went through all those head-breaking examinations, both written and oral conducted by my professors.
I always describe examinations as “walking through hell for a heavenly cause.” Studying theology is really never easy. While I studied already the week before, I still had to review until the wee hours of the morning. Thanks to Red Bull, San Miguel Coffee and Maggi Cup Sarap (No Cook Porridge), I still had the energy for the next day. Whoa! Grabe! Written exams were like running after one’s life. Oral exams were like spending ten minutes in eternity.
Hayyy, I am still here, standing tall and proud after all. Maraming salamat sa inyong mga prayers. God bless you and have a happy weekend!
