unending words of gratitude

It's been just days since i finally marched my way to PICC for our much-awaited Commencement Exercises in Mapua. It's an honor for me to give thanks to those people whom i have shared my life with during these past 4 years of stay in that old RCBC building along Sen. Puyat Ave. in Makati.

these people never failed to make me laugh 'till my stomach hurts XDFirst and foremost, I want to thank my Accounting Buddies '07. We've shared various emotions throughout our journey to graduation. We may have lost many people along the way [due to the 2.50-quota grade] but the group is still intact. I'm proud to have you guys as my college buddies. And as what SpongeBob have said, "Buddies can get through anything, as long as they do it together… buddy!". Truly, we have come a long way since our day 1 in Mapua. And I hope we will still be together, thou not literally always, in whatever endeavors we have in the near future.

To our Accounting Professors, for always believing in our capacities as Accounting students and as Mapuans. Thou we're being pressured by unending loads of stuffs to-do, you still make us feel comfortable with your presence and your faith in us. Some of you might have left the school already but you still believe in our prowess. Without your guides, we wouldn't make this far. And as we face a new battle [which is the CPA Board Exam], I hope you still guide us throughout the way.

To the ETYSBM Department for lots of lessons in life. These experiences, good or bad, have taught us to nurture the gifts and talents hidden within us, to stand up for what we firmly believe. We may have some misunderstandings but I truly want to say thank you for those teachings undescribable in words.

To my Mapua Makati DanceCom for always bringing the joy and happiness in my life though i'm bombarded with stress and problems in schoolworks. You guys have taught me that I'm capable of doing something beyond my reach, that I can do something beyond studying. Thou my parents have a misunderstanding about you guys and my failed subject, I want to clear that up; that it's not your fault why I received that, that it got nothing to do with you nor with dancing. Thank you for those happy memories. You're one of those people who have made my college days colorful and happy.

To my ODS family, though I am not a frequent student of the studio, you never fail to make me feel at home whenever I attend the studio's activities. You have become a 2nd home [not to mention 3rd family] to me now. Thank you for the memories and I still continue to be associated with people like you until God-knows-when. Thank you for your guidance, your faith, and everything in-between!

To all the professors who handled me [I won't name you anymore], thank you. Even thou you bombarded each Mapuan with lots of schoolworks you made our stay in Mapua a memorable one. Thank you for a term [or 2] of handling me and my classmates.

To Prof. Alpha Omega Galsim, CPA, the first and only professor who had gave me a 5 [which made me unqualified for the Dean's Award:( ], i do thank you. Even thou you failed me in Act211 [FinAct 1 - Current Assets], it made me strive more to finish my program even thou along that road I was hesistant and confused if I have to shift course or to transfer to other schools. Even thou we didn't get along, I do respect you. With that failed mark, I learnt that in order to become stronger one must face trials, even failures. That failure made me a better person. Thank you for that.

To Atty. Joseph John Gerald Aguas and to his wife, [tita] Armi Aguas, CPA, thank you for everything you have done, from the photoshoot down to the feasibility study. You showed so much love to me, the love that was typically shown by parents. I really do admire both of you. I wish you all the best in life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

To my MaGiK team mates [Kat and Selle], we may have lots of misunderstandings during the feasib making process but you never failed in believing in my capabilities. I'm not just thanking you for that but also I want to say sorry if most of the time I neglect my duties to the group. I may feel irritated and so pressured with your stance to me but that made me persevere more in doing my duties. Thank you for everything despite my wrongdoings to the group.

To all the people I have met and befriended to during my stay in Mapua, thank you. Though we have met and hanged-out for an average of 1-2 terms only, you still have an impact in my life. Thank you for everything!

To my parents, I may not be a vocal daughter when it comes to giving thanks or showing my love to you but i really do appreciate EVERYTHING you've done to me since i was born. Though we may lave LOTS OF MISUNDERSTANDINGS [I won't mention them anymore], you still haven't given up on me. When I failed my subject you bombarded me with words unfathomable by a suffering student but you still encouraged me in the end. You may have not supported me in my activities yet when you do know about them you give them a go. We have so many contradictions but we do find ways how one will cope with them. I am really proud to have you as my parents. Now that I'm a graduate I will do my best to help [especially with the pets' food:)) ] but please, let me decide my future plans by myself, oke? I LOVE YOU MA [okaasan], PA [otousan].

To the Big Man above, Lord God, thank you for the bountiful blessings You have bestowed on me. I may not be the perfect daughter You have but You never failed me to give me Your unending grace. You have shown to me that as long as I have faith in You, You will provide everything. Please continue to guide me as I unravel a new path in my life. I seek for Your guidance but I know that Your will must be done. Whatever it is, I am openheartedly accepting them. Thank you for everything, Lord God.

I may have left the walls of Mapua Makati physically but in my heart I will long for those stairs, for the Rm. 115 [which is the official tambayan of AB '07], for the small [yet jam-packed] ETYSBM faculty room, those 2 coca-cola vendo, the water dispenser, the covered court... in short everything!

Thank you Mapua Institute of Technology - Makati campus for all of these memories. I shall recall them for eternity.

thank you Mapua. :)

commencement exercises na bukas. i am sooooo freaking happy for all of us, especially to my dear AB ^^

congratulations to all of us. let's enjoy tomorrow's event, shall we?

and by the way, don't forget the photo ops! :))

...we too are stardust...

one phase down... one more to go...

everything that ends has a new beginning to unfold...

awhile ago, i mean yesterday morning, i just had my baccalaureate mass in mapua intramuros together with my batchmates, classmates in accountancy program, friends, and some other schoolmates. it's a sign that we're really  nearing that endline of our college days.

in the philippines, a baccalaureate mass is celebrated before the commencement exercises to give praise and thanks to the Big Man above for giving us students strength and endurance in this race. and personally, i am so much thankful for everything He has given to me...

well, this day has started not-so-well, being waken up at 6 am rather than an hour ago; leaving the house  and waiting for taxi cab 300 minutes before the 8.00-a.m. mass; arriving at the venue 15 minutes late. and of course, with those scenes i am not happy at all.

but of course, the mood suddenly changed from piss and hatred to happiness and joy. i enjoy with my friends and company. i enjoy every minute we share. and these memories i shall recall for eternity.

after the baccalaureate mass we didn't let the opportunity pass to have our own photo opportunities. here are some of the pics:

of course we do have a nice shot XD

Accounting Buddies '07

you might ask why we are all in yellow. that is because in mapua it's a custom to have the schools in color-coding. the color assignment rotates but we're lucky to have yellow. not because it's my favorite color [well, that's a fact], but also yellow is the color of the worksheets that had helped us during our crucial times in accounting subjects. and we have this custom of wearing yellow-shaded shirts during major exams.

yellow is AB '07 and AB'07 is yellow. as simple as that.

we have lots of pictures. do visit my multiply album for this.

of course, team magik didn't let the opportunity away. we have our own team photo. yata!

Team MaGiK. picture courtesy of labtim Kat [at the left] ^^

for now, we will enjoy our last days as college students before we enter the real world of unemployment and board exam preparations hahaha.

see you all at PICC on thursday for the special day of our college life. ^^

to the 9 angels of our SONE lives, happy 4th anniversary ^^

let me transfer my fanscreams here... :D

years ago, there is this one girl group that debuted in korea with lots of hater and antis... some said that they are just beauty, with no talent at all. they worked hard to prove the haters wrong while showcasing what they've got in front of different audience and races...

four years later, these girls are still intact. in fact, they are currently asia's no. 1 girl group.

who am i talking about? no other than Girls' Generation. :)

they're also commonly known as So Nyuh Shi Dae [in korean] or the acronym SNSD.

i've been a fan since their debut. a friend of mine introduced them to me, him being a kpop afficionado too...

i found them cute and refreshing so i listened to their songs. upon listening to their single Girls' Generation, which is a cover of a famous singer in korea, i like them since then.

i may not be a 'true-blue' fan to some other due to i don't attend meet-ups and/or conferences with fellow SONES [the group's fans' name] here in the Philippines, i am still proud to call myself one 'coz i've seen them grow as the years go by.

their first single, Into The New World, really makes me teary-eyed whenever i hear/watch it. i don't know why is that so. maybe because i really know the hardships they suffered. they've come a long way to taste the sweet success they're having now.

i am so happy for them. :)
wanna share to you one blogpost i stumbled upon while tweeting [and yes, helping the SNSD4thAnni trend]...

9 Girls, 1 Generation [BY FERREROROCHER9]

Certainly, in life, there are some things that are one of a kind and there’s really nothing else quite like it. We all have to agree that SoShi Bond is one of those things.
Though SoShi Bond is sometimes used when we’re talking about two or more members interacting with each other, SoShi Bond usually refers to when our girls are together as 9; the moment they’re in harmony and become one. It’s something that only our girls have and it makes them stand out from others.
We know Girls’ Generation is not just a group of 9 girls, they’re than that. They’re more than co-workers and beyond best friends. They’re like a family. They look out for each other, they depend on each other, and more importantly, they complete each other. If you think about it, each member has her different charms, strengths, and weaknesses. When they’re together, they’re able to balance out and make up for each other’s flaws. There’s Jessica’s gentleness to make up for Yuri’s toughness, Hyoyeon’s quirkiness to make up for maknae’s inflexibility, Sooyoung’s long legs to make up for Sunny’s shortness, Yoona’s innocence to make up for Taeyeon’s byuntaeness, Tiffany’s wildness to make up for Jessica’s calmness, and vice versa.
When we talk about the SoShi Bond they have, nothing is on par with its strength. Its strength is beyond imagination. It’s stronger than any chemical or ionic bond; it’s unbreakable. Many of us see other groups out there and we see them lose a member, gain a member, or even break up, but our girls are an exception. Through thick and thin, our girls have stuck together and persevered for almost 4 years now. Whatever they encounter, whether it is difficulties or joy, they have overcome and shared it together. Yoona once said, “Happiness is doubled when you share them together and sadness is halved when you share them together.” For Girls’ Generation, happiness is always nonupled and sadness is divided into nine-folds. It’s a beautiful fact we can’t deny.
Additionally, nothing is quite like SoShi Bond’s impact. It’s the reason behind our girls’ success today. If there’s no teamwork or chemistry in a group, you’re probably bound to fail, but our girls have both good chemistry and teamwork entailed in their bond. With their talented and dedicated team,  they’re able to work together to deliver results and we have witness them ourselves–setting a record with 9 consecutive wins on Music Bank, being the first-ever Korean girl group to top the Oricon Chart on the day of original album releasegrabbing the top of the Oricon Weekly Album Chart with a total of 232,000 copies sold in its first week of release, being the first-ever Korean girl group to be certified “Double Platinium” with 500,000 copies of their 1st Japanese album sold, etc.
Sooyoung pointed out before that only together as 9 was she able to come this far in her career and accomplish so much; “I did have some hard times back then [in Japan]. When I was there, I took the underground trains. If I wanted to be on a TV show, I had to go in advance to meet the producers and audition for them. Now, our schedule just fills up by itself. When we arrive at the airport, there are cars waiting for us. So when I went [to Japan] this time, I felt humbled. What I couldn’t do back then has become possible because I’m together with these eight.” 
We can also say that SoShi Bond is the reason why our girls have fans of an exceptional multitude today as well. Many have been drawn to Girls’ Generation solely because of their bond. Every time we see SoShi Bond, we can’t help but find it admirable, right? It’s beautiful. It warms our hearts. It elicits our emotions. It makes our day. And we like this about our girls.
It’s something that keeps our girls together and is both precious to SONES and them.
“…If there’s one thing that won’t change, it’s the fact that from the beginning to the end SNSD was “one” with 9 members”  - SNSD
“I don’t think SNSD as a group will ever be broken apart. Even if after many years have gone by. Even after we get married.” – Taeyeon
“I wish SNSD’s way down can be more beautiful than anyone else’s and that we will enjoy what we have right now. I wish we would all do things with a positive mind.” – Jessica
“For me, each of SNSD members is like my own body. If one gets hurts or hears bad things from someone else, it hurts me and pains me even more. And you know, it’s impossible for only good things to happen to someone, so there will always be difficult and hurtful times; but during these times, I’m thankful that we’re each other’s supports and each other’s strength. I hope in the future, we’ll continue to lean on each other and be strong for each other. Also, when we need encouragement, we’ll continue to look for each other too.” – Sunny
“In a family, we encounter happiness but also sadness, or good things but also bad things. However, let’s be together forever until the end.” – Tiffany
“The nine of us being together is more important than anything else.” – Hyoyeon
“We can only shine brightest as SNSD when SNSD stands on one stage as nine.” – Yuri
“Like a mirror, I look right into their eyes, and they reflect me.” – Sooyoung
“Nine different people gathered and became like a family. To me, it is a very meaningful tie.” – Yoona
“We firmly believe in the power of unity and feel that it is easier to get pass hardships and challenges as a team. This gels us and keeps us strong.” – Seohyun
For me, I’m proud to be a SONE because of the SoShi Bond our girls have. It never ceases to amaze me; 9 girls becoming one. To celebrate for our girls’ 4th anniversary coming up, I made a tribute to SoShi Bond.

I hope Girls’ Generation will continue to persevere for a long time <3
