Playing the flaneur. I put on my Alice in Wonderland shoes to go down the rabbit hole.
And for this, I receive a gift. A reward of Russian cookies.
I have never attended Parangal sa Mag-aaral. I’ve received this award a number of times as an undergrad. But I took it for granted.
Now, I want to attend it, at least once. So I did.
Fred was an awardee too. Great coincidence.
We even took the traditional shots.
And they took it of me too.
University Scholar for 2nd Semester AY 2010-2011 and 1st Semester 2011-2012. I’m quite proud of it. I worked hard and sacrificed a lot.
1.0 average for two consecutive semesters. Not bragging, just simply happy about it. I found something that I want to do, I have to do. The real certificate is still at the Secretariat, as usual.
ASS (Art Studies Society) orgmate Vera was there as well. She’s a bar passer. Again, another shot, this time, with the College Dean, Elena Mirano.
This would not be fun without supportive friends. Claire and Jeff, LOVE them.
Riding in cars, with Fleetwood Mac.
Italian food and conversations.
Then more Fleetwood Mac.
Coffee and studying at ROC.
And bashing fashion magazines.
Alice in Wonderland and her rabbit hole.
Parangal sa Mag-aaral is an annual ceremony done during College week. This is first and only one I ever attended. I usually just get my certificate after. But I learned that its best not to let experiences pass you by. There is always something more to discover. I had fun.
